So after getting very annoyed at my HTC Desire constantly running out of space due to all the unremovable apps on the phone memory I snapped last night and rooted the phone.

Firstly used unrevoked to root the HTC Desire.

While this got me root it left me with a locked boot loader. (S-ON repport by the bootloader.)

Then used revolutionary to get the boot loader unlocked.

Then installed SuperUser from the App Store to manage root use by other apps and then installed ROM Manger.

Finally used ROM Manager to install cyanogenmod.

After successfully booting into cyanogenmod the Android market was broken giving error message,

Error downloading “[App Name]”. There is insufficient space on the device.

Tried clearing all caches, and eventually found that reformatting the SD card and then running MarketFix sorted the problem.

Would like to acknowledge the assistance offer by Cyanogenmod wiki.

House move 95% almost complete, so felt my excuses for not blogging are gone.

Have been enjoy this years Huddersfield Festival of Light though due to the heavy rain, rather than last years snow I left my camera at home. Once again a definite highlight was enjoying a warm local cider though it was also good to see Extra Curricular even though it was wet and cold.

So I have an excuse for my current absence from here as I am currently without internet at home due to moving house and Virgin taking ages to reconnect me. Apparently they have to disconnect the no longer present tenants service before they can connect mine so should be online at home later this week.

So back soon…..

So after slightly longer than intended I have decided to continue my personal podcast as a weekly show.

Though to be clear my intention is to do a show a week, though it wont be weekly.

You can listen to or download the show online at podcast.scotthewitt.co.uk.

Hi all, once again my blog has kind of slipped off my radar but I am still here with a load of half written posts.

Excuse for this absence are, a return to teaching at Huddersfield University, a draft deadline for my PhD (December), my podcast and all the other podcasts, oh and the fact I am getting ready to move house.

So all quite exciting…

In exchange for your on going patience I will point you to this incredible song, David Rovics – Behind the Barricades.

Normal service will resume soon.
