    So I took hp up on the free developer Pre 2 program and in 1 day they have already sent it off to me. So painless!

    Gotta appreciate the gesture. Too bad its not a cdma version... I'm in vz so I guess I'll have to walk around with my pixi+ or pre+ for a while.

    Psyched to begin development!

    Hmmm, I sent them an email, but have yet to recieve an email back. The email I sent asked how to sign up and if I was qualified. I gave them my developer/forum user name as well.

    Did you send them any more information than that in your first email?

    i like how they open the free program up to everyone the day my pre2 unlocked shipped... coulda saved me 300 HP, i know you have the cash to toss around.

    My guess is that opening this to everyone is a multi pronged strategy.

    1 - Make it easy to devs and even budding devs to get access to the latest version of their software. This allows for greater increases in app count as many thousands of fart/burp/matching apps show up. We call this the "Android Effect".

    2 - Get the Pre 2 out to as many people as they can in order to spur future growth by "flooding" the market prior to the Veer and Pre3 release.

    3 - Rule the world...

    I got pre-qualified for it because I'm known by the people in HP (and the person who handled my Pre+ pre-qualified me for this), so I'll be getting a free Pre2 from them soon (that one will be used for official development only, my current one will be used for homebrew development, and my custom-hacked Sprint Pre2 will be used only for personal use)

    I emailed pdc@palm.com to ask for a discount code. I didn't email the new address for the free one. Never heard back. I'm trying to get my studio on board with WebOS, but they look at my old beat up Pre and laugh at me.

    You swap the radios/comm board and then you have to do a couple meta doctors. You can see the newer and easier method by webOS Internals.

    I've heard some people have had success. I guess what you have to do is doctor your Pre"-" with 1.4.1, login to it, then update OTA to 1.4.5 and it should properly set your profile.

    If that doesn't work, you can still contact Palm tech support and they should be able to reset your profile manually to function on 1.4.5

    Newer easier method? I haven't found that post yet. I know they are working a better process to get paid app cat access by spoofing the profile to 1.4.5, but it wasn't easier, at least yesterday it wasn't. I better go look.
    Clicking the Thanks button is a great way to say... well THANKS

    Actually, I Just doctored a Verizon Pre Plus (without service, with WiFi profiles pre-installed) to 1.4.5 and logged into my profile with that. It reset my profile from 9.9.9 to 1.40.50. I'm now trying to up it to 2.1.0 with the meta-doctor scripts...

    *Update*: 2.1.0 custom doctor seems to say that my Data could not be restored... "Please wait a few minutes and try again". *sigh*.
