    THIS THING IS SICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am just wowed.

    HUGE props to webos internals! You made my month!


    Im sure Ive still got bugs to work out and Ive gotta put patches and all that jazz back (which I'll do tomorrow sometime)

    But the SPEED, SMOOTHNESS, glass screen is EPIC. Thing is friggin FAST STOCK.

    I cant say enough right now.

    (can you tell Ive been using a launch pre- since launch?!)

    It launches apps in a timely manner, except for facebook and quick office. It is fast enough so I dont have to over clock although I am tempted to overclock just for fun.

    A funny thing though, I like to see the animation, if its too fast I would miss that, probably. But yes I agree frankenpre is pretty smooth, yet to see too many cards error.

    I was able to snag a brand new Verizon unit on Craigslist for $220. If you live in a major metropolitan area, and have a little patience, one might pop up there for less than they're going for on eBay. Or wait for a "bad ESN" Pre 2 on eBay - those go for less, and you won't be using the ESN anyway.

    faster meaning load time ... no waiting really.. i mean theres more like a 2sec wait maybe less for apps to load..

    taps register faster.. apps pop up faster etc..

    I'm heavily thinking of buying a pre for $350 and have already gone through all the steps. But if I get a VERIZON, is there an official update to 2.1 now without having to meta doctor?

    then y are there threads saying verizon released 2.1? So the only way I don't have to meta doctor is by getting the Gsm?

    I have been resisting. This thread made confident. The issue is should I wait for Pre 3 ? A franken Pre 3 would be fun.

    Rod Whitby has posted that the physical characteristics of the Pre3 would not support a franken pre3, the comms board from a sprint pre will not fit into the pre3. He seems like someone who would know.

    if/when the pre comes out and could be franken-pre-ed....then you can do that then. (which rod already said it will be impossible tho)

    might as well rock a pre2 until then

    So yah, I Sprintified my Pre 2 last night from my old Pre-, and like everyone else on this thread, I'm ecstatic. I should've done this a long time ago!

    One thing I experienced, though, that may be helpful to someone - I didn't delete my Palm Profile backup information, and then when I tried to sign into my Profile after the 2.1 upgrade, it wouldn't let me. I was just about to go back to 1.4.5 and delete Profile backups, but then I decided to reboot and give it one more shot. And it worked! I was able to sign in, and all of my information was restored. Phew!

    hey kappy. Did you get a verizon or unlocked? And what about the NAVIGATION system, is it there after you sprintify it?
