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: ADB install
Quote:

Download the package here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...3&d=1321938181
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 /dev/block/system /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

The modifications to PortalApp will have no effect on that interaction whatsoever I have just removed the bit that checks to see if your dock is legit when the Webtop Launches. And the modification to DockService simply causes the mIsWebtopAllowed variable to return true.

In short everything will work the same, you'll just always have a webtop option in the Dock Picker Activity no matter what type of HDMI/Dock you have connected.
