    Will the Pixi then have all the correct files for WIFI and Sprint NAV after this process is complete or will the Sprint Pixi Doctor remove the WIFI?
    yes your right its pretty much that easy and sprint nav works its just like it was before just with wifi

    finally found a good deal on a bad ESN Pixi Plus and will be doing the mod tomorrow. $15 on Ebay. Got the two Drs on my computer ready to go. All my files are backed up too. Now I need to get my app and patch lists prepped. Then I'm ready to doctor away. That's providing I have the right torx bit. Anyone know the right size off hand?

    #5 will work just fine. Good Luck.

    thanks! Unfortunately I think the smallest I have is a #6. Off to the Shack.

    I've done the work before with a flathead screwdriver from one of those eyeglass repair kits.

    Thanks. I might give that a try.

    Well a small phillips screwdriver did the trick. Installation was a breeze. Now on to the double doctoring and restoring everything.

    finished up and everything works great. It's amazing how much better battery life is when you have a good wifi signal! Thanks to everyone who figured this mod out. Feels like a new device.!

    Digging up this thread because after the surgery, I have a verizon pixi (-) and want to put the VZ branded webOS on there. Is there a modified version of 1.4.1.1 or 1.4.5 available like the one we used for sprint (i.e. the process in reverse) or do I have to try and build it myself :O
    ...This programming stuff is actually addictive but really hard :/

    sooo close...the screw holding the sprint radio board in place just wont budge and it is very close to being stripped so I threw in the towel.

    bummed...

    My phone is flashed to another network will this swap affect the new network i have?

    OK, getting ready for round 2. Plussed my daughters phone 2 months ago and it has been working great. Looking to do another and have a working Sprint Pixi and bad Verizon in the mail to me.

    When I converted the first phone it was already on an active Sprint account. Now this new phone is not on account. Am I still able to follow the same steps as outlined here in the first post or in #129 or will the steps fail as the account is not active.

    I want to be able to get the phone swap completed first instead of activating a new Sprint account and then taking the phone apart.

    Auth Error
    Your service account does not allow internet connection sharing. Contact sprint for help.

    The connection works anyway, but is there a way to avoid that? Do you have that problem as well.....

    Here is a screen capture:

    When my phone comes in, I'm definitely going to do this. One question though, if I order a verizon pixi plus that's advertised as having a bad ESN on ebay (they're by far the cheapest) ... will that still work?

    Thanks! Can't wait to join the webOS community!

    No the spring update will not remove wifi :/) all you have to is the radio board swap doctor it then update it your good to go

    Does this method swap CPU's too? is it on the radio board? Or is it on another part of the phone?
