Post subject:  Removing Timebomb in post-reset Longhorn builds

Is it possible to remove the timebomb for any build that was after the "reset" of Windows Longhorn? I searched throughout the forum, and it mentions hex-editing the token.dat file. However, I'm no expert on hex-editing.

Only build 5048 works with TweakNT. After that, you must replace the tokens.dat to one from a build without a timebomb.

Is there a way to make one? I would also like to remove the timebomb in early Windows 7 prerelease builds as well as well as Windows 8 and even Windows 10 builds.

Just replace the tokens.dat of the beta build by using one from a build without a timebomb. No need to create a new tokens.dat.

Okay, but should I take one from an RTM build and if so, a previous version or the next version (e.g. for build 5112, should I use the tokens.dat from Windows Vista or Windows XP)?

I think any build without a timebomb will do. I do however think its based on version. Like XP builds token.dat file can only be used on other XP builds.

NOTICE: I do not know anything about token.dat so please take my comment with caution

In fact,replacing tokens.dat dosen't works on Vista beta1 to beta2

So it's safe to assume that there's no way to remove it in Windows Vista Beta 1 and 2. But what about the prerelease builds in later versions like Windows 8 (like build 8102)? I saw it was possible.

I think that it is really difficult to remove the timebomb of post-reset Longhorn builds since TweakNT doesn't work with them except for 5048, but well as time has passed maybe some knows how to do it.

I had 52xx and 53xx running on today's date with my d600. They require:

tokens.dat patch
winlogon patch

But it's possible.

Sorry to revive this topic, but yourepicfailure, how did you debomb those builds?

Post subject:  Re: Removing Timebomb in post-reset Longhorn builds

Alright, finally remembered about this topic and someone asking. Slapped 5231.0 on my d600 again just to see if I still remember how to do it right.

It isn't easy. Tell me a build and I'll see if it works for you. Different builds require different methods slc.dll, winlogon etc.
But we'll have to restrict extensive chat because forum policy.

Interestingly enough, I was just about to post my findings on this topic. I managed to activate my post-reset VM (Build 5384) with the official Windows Vista Developer Activation app. I won't share it here though, as it would be against forum rules.

Here you can see the "Evaluation Copy" notice has been removed after using the Activator.

Okay, I want to see build 5219.0. Sorry about my late reply. Cosmo, what other builds could you patch with that patcher?

I could try 5231, and see if it goes along smoothly.

You just need to use TweakNT.
