    Another useful tool for our recovery bin

    NOTE: this works with 1KDS 'es Linux Bootable SBF CD, an easy tool for using the amazing 1KDS utility.
    (get it here http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/dr...-problems.html)

    OK, so here's the deal.
    You need to SBF (bricked your phone, you're an SBF junkie, etc)
    You are somewhere without a CD/DVD burner.
    You're at home, but out of blank CDs, and no gas in the car.
    You're at work, and have too many projects open on your PC to reboot to the live CD

    But... You MUST SBF
    What do you do?

    Download Mobalive (links below)
    It enables running the 1KDS utility (or any live CD) from the iso file, no need to burn a CD or reboot the PC.
    It is a stand alone program and does not need to be installed, just copy to your windows PC along with the 1KDS iso file.
    Start the program and click on "run the live CD"
    Navigate to, and select the 1KDS iso file and select it.

    It's that easy, no need to burn a CD or reboot the PC, it runs the 1KDS live CD right in a window on your windows PC.
    (note: it takes about 10-15 minutes to load to the SBF yes-or-no screen, and seems to hang at a couple spots, but it will finish loading, or maybe I was just being impatient)

    You can get it here, or just google mobalive, it's down-loadable for free from their website

    Great program I've used it to test a few Linux distros before and works great. A bit slow at times but it will get the job done

    Thanks, Mac, Hillmom, I know it's not a new OTA leak or anything, but it did look like a really cool addition to our arsenal.
    Still, its the 1KDS utility that is so freakin sweet, this is just an add-on to make that more versatile

    Thanks for the heads up HD! I'll be looking into using this with the iso, which means I'll have to fire up windows

    I have only used 1KDS Linux to SBF (after fighting with RSD lite) and it is the way I recommend to everyone. Just LOVE IT!
