    Hi all,

    My first post, my first Pixi!

    I'm a completely noob in WebOS. I just bought a 2nd hand Pixi Plus to play with the system.

    Despite all the comments about the slow performance of the phone, I'm loving it. Except for the ugly, horrible Jeep Theme it came with.

    The phone is an AT&T one. I did it a Full Erase, but the theme appears to be made with the system.

    I tried to follow instructions like this thread but neither WebOS Quick Install nor Preware is installed. In fact I received the phone completely erased by the first owner.

    Can, please, anyone points me to a procedure to remove this horrible thing from my phone? I just want the default WebOS appearance.

    Thank you all!

    If you doctor it (reinstall the OS) that should take care of it.

    Hi! Thanks!

    Just did it and get rid of that ugly thing! The startup screen, a front of a classic jeep blinking it's headlights was gorgeous, but all the rest wasn't!

    Thank you for your kind repply!

    Just another noob question: I see the topic about install WebOS 2.1 on Pixi Plus. Is it worth?

    Everything I've read about 2.1 on a Pixi Plus says NO it's not worth it. 1.4.5.1 with Uberkernel and Govnah will get you the best performance you could imagine. Adding 2.1 on top of that setup? Well, actually you can't. I don't think unixpsycho ever released the kernel for the Pixi Plus for 2.1 since it's just a proof test anyway.

    Yeah! Nothing about Jeeps is ugly! I used to love jeeps! Except that theme! The icons were terrible! An old landline phone as the dialer icon, a piece of very old paper (or papyro) as the tasks icon.

    If can I preserved the bootscreen, but all other was very, very, very ugly! :-P
