Hi Community
I do own an AT&T US 16 GB modell with a English language WebOs and would like to replace/ modify /alterate the WebOS into a German language WebOs.
If there is somebody who can give me a step by step introduction I would very much appreciate that.

Thanks in advance!

I think the easiest way is to doctor the phone using the EU version of webOS 2.2.x, do a quick search on how to do this, it's quite easy n it should (don't quote me) be safe. That will give you german language options and a bit more space.

Planning on doing it myself soon (just to have more space tbh) if you want to wait for results

Lade dir hier den Doctor herunter, lade dein Pre 3 voll auf, starte den Doctor und folge den Bildschirmanweisungen.

Das Gerät wird dabei komplett zurückgesetzt.

Wich Doctor shall I download, this is is an US AT&T Pre 3 with 16GB, that means I have to complete erase the US version of the webOS and replace it by a German webOS version. Are you sure it works as easy as you described it? Sorry to questioning you but I don't like to turn my device to "Briefbeschwerer" paperweight.

The "wich" I already seen in your post, sorry for that, but still does it really work so easy out.

No. It is not that easy.

The Doctor for European Pre 3 will not install on North American Pre 3. You will get an "Incorrect Model" error and the Doctor will not run...

There is a build script in Meta-Doctor for AT&T Pre 3 to impersonate the WR version (That would allow the North American version to flash the European Doctor.)

I suggest a trip to webOS Internals to read up on Meta-Doctoring. Application:MetaDoctor-DE - WebOS Internals

It is a lot... I'm just starting to learn Meta-Doctoring.

My first attempt was a fail. I tried to use the script that adds Touch to Share to my Veer 2.1.2 and it broke the bluetooth connection I had established with TouchPad. I had to Doctor back to the original. I'll try again though - I was in a hurry the first time and might have ran past an error message.

All in all it is a good learning experience... Not a quick fix by any means. Still, I look at it as something worth learning how to do correctly that will give me a better understanding of my device and how webOS works.
