| | Using Blackberry as USB Bootable Pendrive
Please Login to Remove!
Would like to know if anyone has a solution to this problem as outlined here
Using a SD card reader and using Acronis I copied a g4d bootable image of a working usb pendrive to a the 8gb sd card from my Blackberry , I could also have used RMPrep to do the same thing.
The working image contained g4d mbr etc. and live xp,
I have two BB curves an 8900 & 9300.
The 9300 has IT security policy enabled and as such requires a password when usb is connected.
The 8900 does not have IT security policy enabled and as such does not require a password.
I put the sd card in the 8900 connected the Blackberry to my computer and at the boot menu chose to boot from the Blackberry SD card
et voila it worked and why not so all live xps, install .iso's etc can now go on BB and with a short usb lead no need for pendrive.
So then I tried the sd card in the 9300 but when the bios tried to enumerate the card BB's requester came up on the phone asking for the password
So of course by the time you've finished putting your password in the bios has already finished looking for bootable devices.
So the question is:
Does anyone know of an app that can pre open the usb port on a IT security enabled BB obviously this will have already asked for your password ?
I could of course remove the IT security policy from my 9300.
I have since removed the IT policy from the 9300 3G curve but still get the charge or usb requester which stops the computer bios from seeing the SD card but the 8900 works. Software or hardware solution good.
Any ideas appreciated.
