I’m Like a Kid at Christmas!

I love Christmas for so many reasons:

  1. Today is a reminder that God is with us.  He emptied himself (Philippians 2) to dwell among us.
  2. Today is a reminder that there is always a home where we belong.  I loved the pastor’s homily last night.  He spoke of the prodigal son.  This really IS the true Christmas story. God allows us to choose a path that leads to ruination.  But He is always waiting for us to return.  And He rushes to meet us upon our return.  The birth of Jesus is testament to God rushing to meet His children.
  3. I really do love the gifting process.  I love buying and making gifts for others.  I am thrilled to see joy as someone opens a surprise or when a deep desire (or unmet need) is realized.
  4. And I love kids at Christmas – cuz I am really a kid at heart.

So when the Christmas hubbub finally began to subside, I decided to give myself a little Christmas cheer: I decided to treat myself to ApeX 1.3.1 for the holidays.  Once I had secured root access, I couldn’t wait very long – and it only took four days for my resolve to waver.  I pulled down Rom Manager, installed a bootstrap recovery tool (i.e., ClockworkMod) and got to work.

The process was oh so simple.  There are dozens of “howto” guides on the Net.  So I won’t reinvent them here.  But I will say that the process is not nearly as daunting as the first few WinMo cookers I deployed a few years ago.  If you are cautious, then you can do this with confidence.    And there is so much assistance that you can obtain.  I won’t be a link farm for these kinds of things – especially as there are legal implications.  But I can say that all you need can be found on Google.
