[BOTH][MOD by APP] Nebtop - Universal HDMI Webtop hack
I will keep updating issues about Webtop on my website. I won't copy those analysis or finding to here to reduce redundancy and effort....
What is this about?
In short, you can use this to activate Webtop mode and see the virtual pad on the phone with an HDMI cable only.
In long, this is a runtime MOD that can simulate the docking event of the HD dock so that the virtual pad will come up. Together with the hw.whisper trick, the Webtop option can then show up and being selected.
This mean if you set the hw.whisper manually, you could still see the Webtop option. Be sure to set this using root before plugging in the HDMI cable.
To make this ease of use and able to simulate the docking event, an APP has been written to do the runtime MOD for you.
This app requires ROOT privilege.
Why is it called Nebtop?
Well, everything needs a name.
HDMI Cable \ + Nebtop -> \Nebtop -> Webtop
For sure, the phone must have webtop built-in for this to work.
What is the difference of this MOD comparing to the existing system apk MOD?
Fenny's MOD was the first that allows exactly the same result for various Moto phones. That was the first important foundation for further improvement.
The runtime MOD done by Nebtop has the advantage of not changing anything persistently. So in the worst scenario the kernel will panic and cause reboot only.
Also, this MOD is trying to be universal, for different phones and ROMs that supports Webtop. Even it failed for kernel compatibility issues, if it can be done, it will be done.
Feel free to try it on your Webtop workable device with an HDMI cable! As the least request, please report whether it works for you and what phone and ROM you're using so that I could keep this MOD by APP improved.
Just tried it out; although I was using the botched CDMA hacked webtop the trackpad display came up but no function; It does show that it is connected to a dock though which is a good step in the right direction.
Do you have the original webtop files available in a zip format to flash through CWM or possibly full ROM for CDMA Verizon?
* reloaded razrx rom; now webtop shows top left only of my screen but still no control from the phone itself
** reset phone; full screen but still no responsive phone pad
*** loaded nitro deodexed; still no response to the phone pad, displays fine but the new display comes up blank as the rest
**** loaded another stock rooted rom 744; no change in phonepad function; phonepad appears and can rotate, extent of function
Works fantastically on stock outside of the safe strap rom
