Removing Exchange Direct Push Device Security Policy

I know there was another thread about this somewhere but I could not find it. But I wanted to share this info just in case anyone else was looking for it as I was.

I found this over at XDA, the original thread is:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=317107

Basically it provides the registry tweaks needed to change/remove the direct push policies enforced by some companies. Not to say the policy is not needed, but it is a huge both for me having to enter a 10+ alpha-numeric password if my device has not been in use for more than 5 min.

Here are the registry tweaks:
using a device registry editor (remote, or PHM) modify the following key(s)
The Exchange Security Policy (4131) updates the device policy:
HKLM\Security\Policies\00001023: 0 = Enabled; 1 = Disabled

To change the inactivity timer:
HKLM\Comm\Security\Policy\LASSD\AE\{50C13377-C66D-400C-889E-C316FC4AB374}\
AEFrequencyType: 0 = No inactivity time; 1 = Activity time enable
AEFrequencyValue: = number of minutes before timeout

To change the password strength policy:
HKLM\Comm\Security\Policy\LASSD\LAP\lap_pw\
MinimumPasswordLength: minimum number of characters in password (0 defaults to 1)
PasswordComplexity: 0 = Require Alphanumeric; 1 = Require numeric (PIN); 2 = No restriction

And finally to change the Device wipe settings:
HKLM\Comm\Security\Policy\LASSD\
DeviceWipeThreshold: -1 = disabled; (any positive number) = # failed attempts before device memory gets whacked
CodewordFrequency: # of attempts before a codeword is displayed to prevent accidental device wipe.




I also was using a small proggy I found over at mobility today but has issues with SPB mobile shell now screen and the program. If your not using SPB MS, than this would be a much easier way to apply the above.

This is Awesome! Thank you for all your help. I've been searching all over the web trying to find out how to do this. I've hated that stupid Secruity Policy on my Treo 700wx and even more on my 6800 because of the no Hard Buttons only Touch Screen, so i had to look at the screen to unlock it. Very Annoying. But, once again thank you for all your help. im sure a lot more people have been looking for this tweak as well.

Okay after 12 hours or running the hacks and with some information from another board, it would seems the reg entries are rewritten to their default by AS Exchange.

So the second solution would be the more permanent solution.
