    2.1 has NOT been released for Verizon, just like 1.4.5.1 hasn't been released for Sprint. Get over it already. Meta-Dr. to 2.1 if you want it & leave this topic alone. . .

    Perhaps we should avoid this subject....
    Oh, I totally agree. We don't want anyone getting their feelings hurt.

    true dat. 2.2 is when SMS through the TouchPad is supported. Who flippin knows when we'll see 2.2 - a year maybe? My guess is never on the Pre2.

    I have no problem getting a Pre2 then manually putting 2.1 onto it, but it is going to be a pain in the *** when anything after is released I will have to doctor the phone
    VZW Pre 2 on 2.1

    Thanks webOS Internals!

    I would love to do that but I have a couple of apps that Save/Restore doesn't back up so doctoring will make me lose quite a bit of important data. I'm holding out for an OTA to save me a ton of re-typing.

    You can always go to the Save / Restore thread & ask for support of the apps concerning you. Please note the bounty associated with requests detailed in the first post.

    Wonder if it has been meta-doctored.

    Any way to tell? Would it have all those icons on it or would it be missing some?

    I think you can look at what ROM it's running in Impostah under Device Profile. Or you could just see if Skype is an option under Add Account in the phone app preferences. The MetaDoctor doesn't add Skype support.

    I'd like to know this as well. Would be very helpful.

    There is a Windows method, but it involves running Ubuntu in a virtual machine. So, basically, you do need to make a Ubuntu machine in software, you just don't need to do anything with hardware. If you don't want to make a partition on a hard drive in your main computer, you can do what I did and stick the Ubuntu virtual machine files on an external hard drive.

    I realize now that I was making an assumption that the carrierROM would be different for a MetaDoctored device than for a stock device. So, this may not actually be an indication of anything. I will know what a MetaDoctored carrierROM looks like when I get home and fire up Impostah on my Verizon Pre Plus running 2.1. I have the stock 2.0.1 on my recently acquired Verizon Pre 2 that's with me.

    I'm far from a linux expert but couldn't you just burn a live CD and use it in conjunction with a stick drive (for downloads) to accomplish this? Let me know if I'm stupid.

    Okay, I just looked at my Pre Plus that's been MetaDoctored to 2.1, and the carrierROM is "Nova-WR-Castle-285". Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the "WR" in place of "Verizon" is an indicator that a non-Verizon build of webOS was used to MetaDoctor the device. So, Bluenote, since your carrierROM specifies "Verizon" rather than "WR", I believe that you are running the official Verizon build of 2.1. That is quite intriguing! Not to mention lucky!
