    Oh, I never left. Sure, my TouchPad has Android for some things, but webOS is my flavor of choice.

    That's high praise if you've had access to a variety of phones and you chose to come back to WebOS. Welcome back!

    Every phone has pluses, but nothing feels as right in my hands as a Pre.

    You can get a heck of a deal on a Pre, Pre+, or Pre2 on Ebay nowadays.

    I recently bought a Pre2 for under $20 (in great shape) and a "re-furb' Pre Plus for under $30 (mint condition).

    Meta-doctored Pre2 to 2.2.4 and Pre Plus to 2.1.
    Can't think of a better deal on a still-very-capable smart phone for the money.

    I am going to tag on and probably violate some forum rule but here goes........

    Long time user of Pre phones - back when I had time i tweaked the daylights out of my pre's and love them - currently on a 2nd Pre2 that is starting to die - I have a backup that I can deploy but I have questions that I am not patient enough to pour through the forum this time to figure out.

    Can you help me with a few conversion to new phone questions?

    Do I simply shut off my old phone and start up the new one from scratch? Register the Palm profile and all?

    Essentially rebuild my Pre personality from the beginning? Are all those programs still out there?

    This is where I really need to talk to someone - I hate typing.................

    Thanks, Rusty

    Rusty,

    If you shut your dying phone down and activate the new phone with the same Palm Profile you will get all your App Catalog apps back...

    AFTER YOU UPDATE THE ROOT CERTIFICATE (see any of the 283 threads on that topic scattered around the board).

    You will NOT automatically get back any App, Tweaks, Patches installed via Preware.

    Do you have AppTuckerBox? That helps.

    Run all backups first.

    Open a Word Doc and take time to go through Preware and write down a list of all packages you installed so you won't miss anything.

    I always kept a Phone setup document updated for just such a problem (like after every Doctor)...

    Hope this helps.

    The root certificate update is just not happening the way it should. I changed the date and everything.

    Any chance there's a manual, WOSQI way?

    I always liked the WOSQI method. Application:Preware - WebOS Internals

    Just playing around with it.
    I have a note 2 and iphone 4. WebOS is my favourite.

    This thread is exactly how I'm feeling! I was thinking about webOS once again this morning, and thought I'd check on eBay and see if I could pick up a cheap Pre 2. Found a Verizon Pre 2 for $31, and I bought it instantly. I'm not going to use it as a phone, basically use it as a iPod touch. I've been researching on here and the webOS Internals wiki about activating it, Preware, etc.

    I'm super excited for the device to arrive! I've always loved webOS and it's sad that HP stopped making devices and ultimately stop developing webOS for phones. I'm interested to see what LG does with Open webOS and hopefully we'll see some interesting stuff in the near future.
