thnx ..went the pwnage tool route.

problem though! while compiling the custom ispw, it gave me a message saying that it's going to have to run a script once the phone boots.

it didn't install any of the custom apps when it installed the custom fw though (app installer, summerboard, etc).

it gives me the message "startup script completed" everytime i boot the phone (is there a way to disable that?), but the only additional program listed is the bootneuter.

any suggestions??
