I'm a web developer by trade (9+ years of LAMP/HTML/CSS/JS), a musician by education (BM Music Composition, University of North Texas 2006) and a writer (evenoneword.com, 2 books, three comics, and a webcomic) by passion.

I attempt to help people when I can, and I do my best to make life easier for those around me.

For a long time I've considered myself a jack of all trades, and to be honest I'm starting to think that's pretty much required of anyone who wants to be successful today.

comment Disable ActiveSync Remote Wipe in Froyo
I can't make up my mind about it. I think the big thing would be that your company should provide IMAP access for mail. It may not be as secure or provide quite as quick/easy integration with calendars, but it removes the need for you to brick your phone over a bad e-mail.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm mostly worried about the remote wipe feature, which isn't about a pin lock wiping your phone but a function wherein the admin can send a special meta-email to your inbox which causes the phone to be wiped.

this is great news! Touchdown was around back when I had my G1 but I heard a lot of bad stuff about it, I assumed it was disappear, but it looks like it's getting a lot more traction, so I'll look into it. Thanks!

I'm not worried about the pin code entry, I'm worried about the ability for the sysadmin to send a remote wipe command (special type of meta e-mai) that will basically brick the phone.

I'd forgotten to check back with the stock browser in awhile, I think I'll do that. Thanks for the heads up Matthew!

comment Disable ActiveSync Remote Wipe in Froyo
@lieryan Honestly it's a question of personal preference. It's my personal phone, not a company phone, so I don't want my company being able to wipe it ever. That being said, I might end up doing this : taranfx.com/vmware-virtualization-on-android Because of the fact I could potentially just have an entire OS dedicated to work, I wouldn't mind setting up a fully functional exchange setup there. But I don't like the idea that just to get company mail I have to subject myself to frankly draconian security policies.

From what I understand (anyone correct me if I'm wrong), the way the protocol works at the moment is that Froyo and newer now just accept those special "meta" emails if they're sent. From the Exchange server configuration, your IT department may never send them, and may have it configured so they can't, but that doesn't stop them from doing it in the future.

Rather than updating the post I'll comment here: I've rooted my phone and I'm going to see if there's any way to modify it from here. If I do, I'll post the answer.

From what people have told me, there's a way to use Touchdown which allows you to set permissions on syncing, but what I'm trying to figure out is if there's a mechanism by which you can disable this with your ActiveSync. If nothing else, finding a way to block the e-mail that causes the wipe with internal filtering. But I imagine most of that is bypassed intentionally by the system. Anyway, +1 for response, thanks.
