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:
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:
Webtop mode over any HDMI without an expensive dock.

Installation:

Method 1: Flashable ZIP

Method 2: ADB install
Download the package here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=734235&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

Make a flashable zip now :)

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

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.

Can't wait for a flash-able zip, this is awesome news o_O

I'll work on a flashable zip right now. Give me a minute.

Done!

Test it out and tell me how it works. I threw in a zip to return to stock also.

EDIT: I removed my zips due to official version by Fenny himself.

    Just flashed the .zip and plugged in my HDMI. Nothing happened.

    Do you have ADB set up, can you post a logcat log?
