    Proof that Palm is selling 500,000 pres per month.

    A= proportion of new owners who ever modify their Pre
    This equals 0.0001% based on air grabbing

    B= Proportion of A that modify with Quick Install
    This is 2 to 1 since there’s always Preware too

    C= Proportion of newby quick installers that have trouble
    apparently 100% since it DOESN’T WORK RIGHT NOW!!!

    D=number of pages of this thread in a month
    200 with extrapolation (so far)

    E=number of newby posts per page
    5 Hey, it’s an average. Prove me wrong!

    F=proportion of C that pick this thread to post.
    1 in 5, they do have other options!

    G= proportion who just give up and take it back to sprint for a new one and don’t even bother to post here.
    This is clearly 5 to 1 at least


    Therefore,

    B*C*D*E*G divided by F*A = 500,000 new pre owners each month

    You forgot to factor in the milominderbinder posting effect. This may reduce the C variable to 99%.

    Okay - so I haven't been following this thread "religiously", but I have been looking at it from time to time, and haven't seen that anyone's out and out said a magic phrase. Maybe, because some people don't understand forums or might need everything spelled out for them, someone should say it. So, for all the people asking the same question over and over and over, maybe you don't understand *why* everyone says to read post #1:

    JASON WILL CHANGE THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE FIRST POST WHEN HE'S DONE UPDATING THE WEBOS QUICK INSTALLER WITH ALL NEW INSTRUCTIONS AND INFORMATION. FAR OUT! NEAT, HUH?!
    EDIT: You can still use the WebOS Quick Installer listed in that first post to install applications (such as -> Preware <-) on a Palm Pre running WebOS 1.2 - it just will not install the tweaks on 1.2.

    What's this homebrew stuff that everyone is talking about?? Do I use quick install to do it? How do I?

    oh and btw......lol just kidding. Preware works great with all the patches! I'm almost certain they all work.

    thanks for all your hard work Jason and bigs ups to webOS internals!!!

    I am blessed/cursed by a long history with the Internet (she be my mistress, *****, dominatrix, what have you) and computers, so I understand these things ... one might even say "innately".

    I also lurked for a good long time here before finding a reason to post.

    I have not the required posts for a sig with links yet, so see:

    does anyone know if there is a workaround to installing the apps if I have verson1.2 installed on my pre? Bought it new and they updated it at the Sprint store before I left with it. If not, is there a way to set the version back to allow the homebrew apps to be able to be instaled?
