    1. Boot to recovery with adb (if u dont know how...learn)
    2. Run the unrEVOked method to get an adb shell, then do su to get # (if u dont know how...learn)
    3. adb push inc.zip /sdcard/update.zip
    4. adb push keys /sdcard/keys
    5. Do:

    /system/bin/mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/mtdblock3 /system
    /system/bin/rm /res/keys
    /system/bin/cat /sdcard/keys > /res/keys
    /system/bin/ps recovery // note the pid of it
    /system/bin/kill <pid>

    6. Vol+ and Power to get menu again
    7. Vol - then power to run the update.zip
    8. Profit!

    Big thanks to the unrEVOked team and koush for making this happen!

    This method does not stick, it is only good until reboot, but adb works now so have fun

    Some problems with accessing /data and some other stuf, but well get it sorted out

    I'm sorry if I'm dense, the hold vol- and power is just to get to recovery right? Been following mostly but not being able to test anything is kinda like being in the dark.
