don’t forget to make the changes in your router and the firewall.
well, this is interesting.
i wonder if our government can explain what mr. reed meant BY “only a consumer, who is also the owner of the copy of software on the handset under the law, may unlock the handset.”
does the gnu gpl apply here? or is the ‘custom’ roms that are installed still owned by the device manufacturer? is the version of android one modifies to install on their device owned by them? or the manufacturer? or the telco?
from looking at exemption to prohibition on circumvention of copyright protection systems for access control technologies, it appears that it may affect only phones under contract, but who knows what the telco’s will try and pull.
the bottom line is that little by little our freedom is being stripped away. yet we as a people do nothing. our government sneaks in these bullshit laws to control every facet of our lives and we are supposed to smile and nod.
|cpu||1.60GHz intel atom n270|

i partitioned the 16g ssd into two 8g partitions. i also used an 8g 30mbps sd card for a swap space for linux and a page file for windows.
ubuntu 12.04 lts
i installed ubuntu 12.04 using the minimal installation iso from a usb drive (the iso is only about 30m). this allowed me to heavily customize the install. the total space used on the drive is less than 2.5g – and thats with me adding in other programs and libraries. i went with xfce for the desktop environment. i had tried lxde and did not really enjoy it. below is a screenshot of htop after the os was fully loaded and running for 5+ minutes.
windows xp sp3
i used nlite and modified the stock iso from the oem cd for the 1116nr. (i will have another post with the modifications i made, including the various registry changes) the total size of the iso, with drivers slip-streamed in, was 240m. the os, with all software (including antivirus, etc) was under 5g. below is a screenshot of the task manager after the os was fully loaded and running for 5+ minutes.
overall i am quite pleased with the 1116nr. both ubuntu and windows are fairly responsive and perform far better than i had anticipated.
i recently got a hp mini 1116nr from a local pawn shop. decent little machine and fun to play with.
naturally, within an hour of owning it, i was opening the case to see how much room was in it for mods. low and behold, i find the hp mobile drive bay, and an unused usb port. i took a premiertek usb wifi stick apart and cut the board down to fit in the case and ran the antenna jack out the side of the case.
here is the final result – using both my 5dbi and 10dbi antennas. i put electrical tape on the outside of the case – this is temporary until i find a similar usb wifi card that is wireless n or decide to hack something else into the case.
i was going through my google analytics info and found that apparently the work i did on my cliq xt has not gone unnoticed. this motivates me to continue working on my cliq xt, even though it is an older model android phone, it is still relevant and a fantastic phone. i will have to go through each system app on the cliq xt and identify what they are and what they do and the potential negative side effects of removing them.
a person on this thread used my site to clean up apps on his cliq xt.
a person in this post referred another person to my site for “Here is a good list of apk and package names.”
another person used my site as well on this thread
1) click start / run
2) type regedit and press enter.
3) open the
4) open the
5) open the
6) open the
7) change the
Attributes data value from
40 01 00 20 to 50 01 00 20. once completed change the
CallForAttributes dword value to
0x00000000 you must change both of these values to get the rename to appear.
i have only done this on the motorola cliq xt. i dont know what else it works on.
make sure when you plug the phone in via usb it is on charge only. also, make sure to have usb debugging enabled (settings > applications > development)
2) install the motorola drivers from here
3) download and extract this zip archive
4) open up the command prompt and do the following steps:
adb devices, this should list the device attached
- for the next few steps i am going to assume the root_cliq folder is in d:
adb push d:root_cliqSuperuser.apk /sdcard/Superuser.apk
adb push d:root_cliqsu /sdcard/su
adb push d:root_cliqrageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
adb push d:root_cliqinstall-root.sh /data/local/tmp/install-root.sh
chmod 0755 rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
chmod 0755 install-root.sh
make sure you phone stays attached to the pc!!
5) now, on the phone, download and install a terminal emulator. i use connectbot.
6) open the terminal emulator and do the following steps:
wait until you see this on the screen:
[+] Forked xxxx childs.
then close out of the emulator.
7) re-open the terminal emulator and do the following steps:
- (if the script prints nothing, then it was successful)
now you have rooted your phone.
