    I'll add another 10 to that!
    I installed that patch on my Pre2 and I'm really glad I did.
    It's just an annoyance on my TP.

    I'm taking a look at the code now. Doesn't seem too hard. Need to fire up the emulator.


    If I helped you or you have downloaded one of my files,
    then least you could do is click the "Thanks" button.

    I know the corporate security wonks are insisting on webOS compliance with enforced policies, but a simple pin to "protect" Exchange data really is absurd. Is there anyone who doesn't use something easy to type like 0000? Seriously?

    yea I know its crazy, but its there for morons who leave there device laying around with sensitive information in it.

    Giving this another shot today. My previous attempts weren't successful. Still on my to-do list though.

    I would throw in at least $5 for this; i'd really appreciate the patch too. Thanks everyone

    I'm in for $10.....

    I can't get this patch working. I've tried commenting out all kinds of PIN and locking functions in the files, but none of them work. I really hope that this isn't built into the LunaSysMgr binary because I am willing to bet it is, especially since HP upped the security on WebOS.

    Since the bounty is near $50 bucks now, hopefully some other coders are more willing to give this a shot.

    Just finished talking to fellow WebOS-Internals member dtzWill and he confirmed that the pin mechanism is hardcoded into LunaSysMgr like I thought. This patch isn't going to happen.

    and I take it this is not allowed to be modified ?

    It's not that it isn't allowed. The LunaSysMgr service is binary. What this means is that the majority of it's composition is composed of many,many,many,many 0's and 1's that tell the computer what to do. It's the simplest form of language that the OS understands. As humans, we just cannot read and modify that type of language without breaking the entire code.

    Everyone knows that computers speak in 0's and 1's right?
