Default [MOD] Webtop Via HDMI Without a Dock

I have enough confirmations that I can now confirm this is working, and have made a flashable zip install method for those less technical of us.

What this mod does:
Quote:
It removes the device ID string check from PortalApp, and enables the webtop option in DockService. Replacing these two apk files effectively allows the webtop to launch without proprietary hardware.
What this means to you:
Quote:
Webtop mode over any HDMI without an expensive dock.
Installation:

Method 1: Flashable ZIP
Quote:
Flash THIS zip.
Method 2: ADB install
Quote:
Download the package here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...5&d=1317262181
First Get the files to the device and remount /system as rw:
Code:
adb push DockService.apk /mnt/sdcard/
adb push PortalApp.apk /mnt/sdcard/
adb shell
su
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
Backup the original files:
Code:
mv /system/app/DockService.odex /system/app/DockService.odex.bak
mv /system/app/PortalApp.odex /system/app/PortalApp.odex.bak
cp /system/app/DockService.apk /system/app/DockService.apk.bak
cp /system/app/PortalApp.apk /system/app/PortalApp.apk.bak
Copy the modded files over fix permissions and reboot:
Code:
cp /mnt/sdcard/DockService.apk /system/app
cp /mnt/sdcard/PortalApp.apk /system/app
chmod 644 /system/app/DockService.apk
chmod 644 /system/app/PortalApp.apk
reboot
Thanks to:
TopazAaron - For catching a typo in my install script.

Make a flashable zip now

Also, don't try to do this with root explorer. You'll get force closes without "Portal.apk"

Works great! I noticed when dialing a number from the mobile view on the webtop it goes to a blank screen after every number dialed.
