O.K., I'm done and I have a Sprint Pre 2 running 2.0.1! Yay! Whew!
Spent the whole day doing this, starting around 2 pm and it's now almost 1 am. Dang. Forget the idea that it's easy--at least for people who have only heard about Linux (but don't know how to pronounce it) and have never heard Ubuntu (but have never seen it run on a PC, much less did the whole "Terminal" thang with meta-doctor etc.)...
Sheesh, guys, so much ambiguity and missing steps and going back and forth to threads and picking and choosing the best aspects/steps/advice of the swap videos and breaking the dang volume rocker (but had two, of course) and....
Luckily, I had a Touchpad to load up stuff to get double screens going!
So I'm updating to 2.1 right now and I'm going to do the Sprint PRL, Nav, and Flash stuff.
But I'm still confused about the PRL: my new Sprint Franken Pre 2 says it has 60681, just like the Pre minus had before I destroyed it. But giggles' "Sprint PRL" thread says 21081 is the latest. And that "Files of oostah" site doesn't list 21081 for Sprint. So, confused. Anyone know I should do?
Anyway, thanks to everyone involved in this adventure! renck, giggles, and everyone! Love this site and love webosinternals and all the developers (but just wish y'all would watch rookies like me sitting down to follow your instructions so you could see where we get confused etc. and then tweak your tutorials...jus' sayin'.... )
Edit: Well....I was able to install Sprin Navigation, but I can't install...Preware! I get the "No Packages Found" error in WebOsQuickInstall 3.14, 4.2.3, and 4.3.1. What's up with that? Why doesn't good 'ol Preware show up for installation?! I reinstalled novacom, and opened and closed WOSQI several times and no Preware. Go figure.
Anyone have a clue about this?! Thanks!
Edit: I should note that, when trying 3.14, is actually does show up, but after I download it and then hit "install," I get an error. On both of the later versions, Preware doesn't even show up.
