    My current patches for my Veer that I would recommend are the following:

    - Ad Blocker
    - Advanced Reset Options
    - Bookmarks List Button
    - Browser Scrollbar
    - Default to Month View
    - Fixed Keyboard Brightness 25
    - GSM 3G GPS and Brightness in Device Menu (lets you force 2g edge to save battery if your in an area that doesn't have 3g so your phone doesn't keep wasting battery looking for 3g)
    - Make It So
    - Muffle System Logging
    - Open Memos App to New Memo Page
    - Remove Tap Ripple
    - Unthrottle Download Manager

    I also went ahead and downloaded a theme for my Veer "Original Blue Theme" that makes it have a really nice look in all of the menu and icons. You can do this with hundreds of other themes by:

    1. Opening Preware
    2. Press top left corner to get the drop down menu
    3. Click "Manage Feeds"
    4. Switch Precentral-themes and Prethemer to "on"
    5. Go back to Preware start screen and you will have a popup saying your feeds need an update. Click "do it now"
    6. Now you can browse the hundreds of themes available for your Veer

    Also an application I would recommend from Preware is:

    - Dr. Battery (lets you see your battery temp so that it doesn't get too hot while outside in the sun and running high brightness and 3g all at once - high temp is a long term battery killer )

    Hope this helps. If you have any questions about why I use certain patches let me know

    I would add from preware:
    jstop for memory mgt --check auto garbage collect
    preset reset-- automatically closes and restarts phone at time you choose every day

    If music remix is available, get it for the veer, the purchase will also be good for the touchpad (in beta now and I hear it looks good)

    if super ads is available for the veer, get it--great app for super bowl ads

    I didn't install any themes yet, but I would recommend Interfacelift for wallpapers: https://developer.palm.com/appredire....interfacelift

    I installed some of Sconix patches: User:Sconix - WebOS Internals

    I also installed JStop and enabled Auto Garbage collect. It really seems to improve batterylive. Batterydrain at the moment is about 1% per hour now, with data, gps, bluetooth, wifi disabled and no phonecalls.

    Advanced System Menus and Mode Switcher are the most important (and donation worthy) by far IMHO.

    I have a profile for car (bluetooth but no data so I'm not tempted to check email), a profile for sleep (no data), a profile for boonies (2G only), etc. and they allow me to really maximize battery life.

    Patch / Application To Disable The Backup
    Anyway to Use SIM as My Default Contact Group
    App for PreCentral / Developers.Palm Forums


    Also I am unable to download any App from the AppCataloge, I did register my phone using impostah, but its not allowing me to download the paid apps.

    1) First of all Webos devices lack OBEX(a BT profile for file transfer) & since webos is not an open source(till now) developers could not develop such an patch or hack due to lack of required source code & API's, I think u can transfer files from computer to veer(I'm not sure this works with veer but people could recieve files via bluetooth in TP & pre3 which are saved in /tmp folder in TP& pre3), but not the other way,
    2)You can turn off Backup,from the backup app itself.
    3)I don't know what error you are getting while trying to download paid apps, for any one to buy & download he/she needs to attach a credit/debit card from the country which he used to create a profile, if u created ur profile to use US app catalog(which most probably the case) u need to have US credit/debit card with a US billing address to purchase the apps, some gift cards like those from simon can be used but you need some one in US to purchase them for you with their valid US credit/debit card. This topic is been discussed in multiple pages over here:Global Paid App Catalog Access for new unlocked GSM Pre 2/Pre 3/Veer (using Impostah)

    Thanks for the reply st_7

    1. Thanks for Clarification
    2. I keep turning it off but it starts by itself.
    3. I did exactly what it said, but I dont know what went wrong, at step 11 when I open app catalogue, it just shows me 3 apps. Where to put the card details.

    There is also a "patch" application in the app catalog that I recommend all veer users get since there is a known issue with the backup function of the veer...

    if you search the app catalog for "Backup Fix" it might come up, or use this link http://developer.palm.com/appredirec....app.backupfix

    With past problems with Palm Profiles, I suggest nobody rely on that backup and find another cloud solution for backup.

    A backup you can't access from any other source is not a good "backup". Okay not really much of a backup at all.
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    Is there a way to remove the arrow in the launcher? I love this on the Touchpad and wish the Veer had it too.

    Right now the scripts are pointing to precentral.net, the homebrew has moved to webosnation.com

    I think this post will have your answers.
