    @China4Ever, Fzeven, Phrunt and other modders:

    and @ALL

    I'm glad to see that there are now enough peoples who are fantastic modders here at forum again. So all requests can be done without delay.
    I decided to stay at background again as I did in the past.;)

    I'll keep myself informed about new modding techniques and will give advice if needed.

    Always important to me is to share knowledge. That's why I tried and will still try to explain what we do and therefore I wrote some manuals:).

    All you have to know about SLP is written somewhere at forum

    I don't like the "I know how it goes, but I don't tell..." mentality

    This days I don't have the time to go in modding as I did the last 2-3 month.

    CU all.

    Of course I'll stay at forum.....:):) So feel free to PM if there are some questions..........

    kudos to your great contribution

    Hi Yen

    I just wish to thank you for your great contribution to making our lives richer by using permanently activated versions of Windows Vista Ultimate. I am sure the rest of the forum members feel the same way about you.

    You held the fort well when China4Ever took his break.

    And it's good that you gave the assurance that you will always be somewhere, in the background.

    Kudos to you for your great work :)

    The gift of knowledge is the greatest gift of all and you gave it to all of us. For those of us that didn`t know what to do with it you wrapped it up in each bios you modded.

    so from all of us thankyou you make our lives that little bit easier :)

    Thank you for all!

    I'm almost moved to tears:)....You are all fantastic!!
    As I said I'm watching the threads... and sticking to......

    I'm engaged in SLP1.0 (a little bit). I'm still using windows XP for my job, yes, IMO still the best OS.....:eek::rolleyes:

    After SP3 will be out, I think it's becoming important to know all about SLP1.0.:D

    Yen,

    I'm new here, but have noticed you seem to be one of "the guys" who knows his "stuff". (Knows what he is talking about + is truly "helpful"

    I like you dislike the "I know how it goes, but I don't tell... type" mentality)

    On you leaving the scene... I've only been here a few days and I've noticed you seem to be truely helpful, it's a shame you will be stepping back from the forefront.

    On the time constraints:

    I can well understand time constraints- not having as much time in the past...

    Do have a question (and a suggestion)

    You mention you wrote some manuals in your opening post. As a suggestion.... If you could "link" to those manuals it would be greatly appreciated.

    (Hope I worded that right- I was expecting to maybe see a linky;) to those manuals,:cool: when you mentioned you were going to be stepping back from the forefront. )

    (Better yet would maybe to put those links in your "sig".... so the links to the manuals would appear in more than one place. (I.E. Not just this thread- if you do choose to add those links)


    Just some thoughts, Like I said I'm new here, have seen your posts, but have not seen the manuals you refer to... Hate to hear you're leaving the scene...

    ******************

    Oh, On XP, SLP1.0.... I too think XP is a better OS... and it would be very helpful for work to continue on XP solutions.

    (XP better in the respect= NO DRM and all that el-****-ola. DRM and all that el-****-ola isn't being used in Vista right now to a large extent- but five 10, 20 years down the road MicroS will have their fingers into "EVERYTHING" you download, use, run, or view on your PC- (or any device connected to it)- Each time it costing you $$$$$ you access /use such.

    Could be wrong on MicroS's intent, but from what I've read on the DRM type el-****-ola in Vista I see problems five, ten years down the road- To tell you the truth I'm considering XP as my last MS OS...


    (Sorry for saying anything negative about Vista... for you Vista lovers out there Vista is "pretty" and all, just don't like MS having more power than they do now..It seems MS is in "bed" with the "Hollywood" types... Or at least using that as a excuse to slip more DRM el-****-ola into the OS....

    Strip the drm type el-****-ola out, strip out the ability for MS to probe your system + and have MS "focus" on making a OS that keeps hackers, viruses out, keep MY data safe and I'd like it allot better.

    Seems to me MS spends too much time and effort on protecting their assets... instead of keeping the end-users data safe.

    I think MS if they are concerned with piracy should reduce the retail price on their software. Start the "retail" price out along the lines of academic software pricing.

    If they did that, making the OS like $80-100, and like $250? fully loaded with MicroS Office instead of $399 just for the OS people wouldn't bother with pirating stuff.)

    *******

    Getting back on topic:

    Besides stand-alone solutions SLP1.0+ XP , I would think most people are going to want to be able to dual boot XP+ Vista, and or triple boot XP, Vista, Linux...

    Or just XP and Linux... for those that don't like DRM and the like...

    Hi,

    the instructions I wrote can be found here:
    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/378
    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/183
    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/315
    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/336

    and at some other places at forum

    These are not detailed, but contain the most important steps and explanations.
    I'm engaged since February with ACPI tables, especially SLIC.
    If you want to understand ACPI table I suggest you to read about the basic structure of a ACPI table found at ACPI specifications.

    The main methods use a address call at RSDT table to call the injected SLIC. Therefore you have to know to where SLIC is mapped to (physical RAM address).
    Since there are different bioses you need different ways and methods. The early methods are very difficult to realize and only a few peoples managed a mod.
    But now due to intensive research there were new methods found. For the best methods there are automatic mod tools available.

    After Vista RTM came out (last November) I decided to test Vista (30 days trial). I soon noticed that it is very nice and awesome. But appearances are deceiving.

    It is slow und full of useless code which makes it acting like a fat lazy dog. There is / was no support of device drivers and it's full of DRM and PMP (protected media path).
    M$ tries to extend its market influence...........
    I decided to stay with winxp, I have got a valid license from my employer. The whole company stays with XP as well.

    I read about licenses of Vista. I noticed that there is no more VLK activation. There are KMS and MAK activations.
    First activation method was to use a virtual KMS server, then some timerstopper.........I heard of SLP2.0 and a way to inject SLIC into bios at Chinese websites. This seemed to me a very interesting concept and a possible flaw.
    M$ thought that SLP activation method is complex enough and not reproducible. They invested much time to make it uncrackable.
    It still isn't cracked. There is no need to crack it. Just give it what it wants, a valid SLIC for SLP2.0 activation.

    It is very time consuming to learn about all this stuff. I spent a lot of my spare time for proof of concept. Result: At almost every kind of bios it is possible to inject a SLIC

    Now it's time for me to go for other hobbies! I neglected much of other interest therefore. ........it is time to quit.....hope you understand......but as I said I'll stay at forum.
