For those of you that have a rooted phone or developers that want to include Wavesecure, anon2122 over at xda-developers wrote up some instructions on how to add Wavesecure to the system partition so itâ€™s preventing listing in the My Downloads part of market, and preventing uninstallation through normal means.
Install the latest version from the market (188.8.131.52 at this time). Now use adb pull to get it off the device onto your pc
Code:adb pull /data/app/com.wsandroid.apk D:\com.wsandroid.apk
Now open Market back up from the menu, go to My Downloads, and choose Wavesecure Mobile Security Beta and uninstall it for just now (to get it off the data/A2SD location that normal apps are stored in) – thanks, my-space!
Then push the saved apk to the system partition after a remount (to make it read/write)
Code:adb push D:\com.wsandroid.apk /system/app/com.wsandroid.apk
Then set it all up as usual (will appear in apps list immediately)
and remount system as read only again
And that seems to be it so far. Remember to change the D:\com.wsandroid.apk path to whatever you actually used.
Let me know if anyone finds any problems with this, but I’ve done it and, fingers crossed, it’s worked OK for me.
Obviously, this is only for root users, and there are no guarantees for this.
