I just grabbed the original patch and merged it into 1.1.0 framework.jar; and I'm posting this here for reference on how to patch framework.jar in future B&N releases.
Things you'll need:
APKtool(by brutall): http://code.google.com/p/android-apktool/
framework.jar: Just grab it from the official sideload update.zip
You'll need to decompile the framework.jar from the sideload update.zip.
Create a separate folder to do all of this.
apktool d framework.jar
I: Baksmaling... I: Copying assets and libs...
cp TelephonyManager.patch /framework.jar.out/smali/android/telephony/TelephonyManager.patch
cd framework.jar.out/smali/android/telephony patch -p0 -E < TelephonyManager.patch
patching file TelephonyManager.smali
Remove the patch file before continuing!
You'll now need to build framework.jar again. Go back to the initial directory and run:
apktool b framework.jar.out
I: Checking whether sources has changed... I: Smaling... W: Could not find resources I: Building apk file...
And thats about it.
Here's the patched framework.jar for 1.1.0 that's already included in IOMonsters rootpack: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9992367/framework.jar
Hopefully this will be a valuable reference in the future!
