Everything one needs to reproduce my creation of the uImage is on my website (Unpacking and repacking U-Boot images part 2). The process is laborious but it COULD be automated and integrated into the doctor script. The copy patch itself can be safely redistributed as well. Unlike a typical patch, it was carefully crafted to not contain any part of either the "before" or "after" file. There's no IP inside the patch, which is why one has to go to the trouble of unpacking the uImage to get to the bytes that need to be merged.

2.1.2 Pros:
Fairly stable. Personnaly I've never had any real issues. Feel free to report any stability problems
Uber Kernel available: Allows fine-tuning of the CPU frequency and voltage which can make the phone smoother and keep the same battery life

Cons:
No Skype support
SMS lag
Facebook does not work with https (or very limited, but more of an app issue than Veer)
Device could freeze at startup displaying a blue background with clouds.
MP3 decoder could cut off the ends of long files.
Small issue with Video/Youtube player : 2mm messed up strip at the bottom of the video


Patches installed:
Screen unlocks when slider opens up just a little (patch available to correct this)
Insert new line instead of sending sms in SMS app when enter key in pressed (as it is located just under backspace key, it kinda bothers me, so I patched it)
GPS/Data toggles


2.2.4 Pros:
Skype support
SMS lag corrected
Bug fixes (Youtube/Mp3 players)
Speed?

2.2.4 Cons:
Phone may reboot when receiving/making a call (patch available, is it enough though?)
Same facebook https issue?
Some have briked their phone, but now that there is a better way of flashing it, maybe the risk is smaller.
Audio via USB dongle in not proper stereo (no problem via BT though)
No uberkernel

Suggested patches:
I can't help on that since I havent installed it yet

Feel free to bing up more points!
Seems to me internet is considerably smoother and faster on oc'd 2.1.2, (1 ghz). Could be a scale-tipper depending on how much one uses internet.

If I unlock ATT Veer with 2.1.2. and follow instructions at herrie82 | HP Veer webOS 2.2.3/2.2.4 update and update to 2.2.4, will the phone still be unlock? Or does one have to go through the procedure of unlock ones again?

Once unlocked, always unlocked... No need to worry.

I updated my hp veer at&t version just 2 days back from 2.1.2 to 2.2.4 using herrie's amazing doctor. It was very smooth update and webos 2.2.4 is way better than 2.1.2. Remember to install this patch after the update WebOS 2.2.3 is already there for Veer
