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 it’s preventing listing in the My Downloads part of market, and preventing uninstallation through normal means.

Install the latest version from the market (3.0.0.43 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 remount

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

Code:

adb remount

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.

    alternate method for those without pc or adb near. From terminal or console on phone:
    #cp /data/app/com.wsandroid.apk /sdcard
    now uninstall it
    #mount -o remount,rw /system
    #install /sdcard/com.wsandroid.apk /system/app

    dont include the # just there to show which lines are commands
