    from the adb shell in recovery:
    su
    cd /system/bin/
    cat /sdcard/GenieWidget.apk > /system/app/GenieWidget.apk
    exit
    exit


    That should do ya!

    ok, well i tried to do that but instead tried pushing the htc news widget. it does not show in the widgets list but shows that it's in system/app when i look using root explorer. what else needs to be done for this to actually work?
