    I'm starting to get interested in this preware stuff but i'm a little afraid i'll mess something up. I mean do the patches and kernels really make that much of a difference? Any thoughts?

    By all means, install it. I have never experienced a problem related to them. Things work as advertised.

    That doesn't you shouldn't pay attention to what you are doing and go slow at first.

    Patches are the key to customizing the details of operation to fit your preferences.

    Many super apps too!

    Ok so a few questions:

    1. When they release an update for webos (i.e. 3.0.3), will i have to uninstall preware and istall it again? Or how does that work?

    2. What do u mean by "many super apps"?

    It's easy, and little can go wrong; on the off-chance that something does, removal is generally painless and if you really do manage to apotheker stuff up BAD, you can always doctor and get back to factory settings (taking all of your in-app data with you with the marvelous Save/Restore - available in Preware.)

    If you positively, absolutely do not want to live a little and would prefer to be on the safe side, don't install UberKernel and don't overclock as that is the only Homebrew that will void your warranty. Everything else is fair game

    Preware is just an app, you install it once. Patches technically need to be uninstalled, but thanks to some magic called AUPT (look it up) Preware does that automatically for you. You just use the OTA update without any added hassle. You'll lose your patches, however, until they're updated for the new version, at which point there will be an update in Preware.

    Yes, and the original kernel is also I available through preware.

    The stock kernel won't overclock anyway.

    Call me superstitious, but I remove patches and reinstall the original kernel before system updates.

    So the uberkernal did not remove and replace the stock kernal, only added a new one that is selectable? Just asking because I had read different on another site.

    Absolutely. Uberkernel at 1.5 GHz is like a new machine.

    it does remove and replace. But it also makes a backup and restores it on removal.

    Thanks! btw Would I want to uninstall Govnah, or Uberkernal first?

    uberkernel. No real reason to uninstall govnah.

    this stuff is very solid.
