    I remember it having a grey background in the past. It now shows the last pic I took, greyed out a bit, with the camera icon on it.

    Anyone test out sending yourself a wallpaper from this site? It didn't work for me now.

    Just to confirm, FWIW, that the RocknRollHax still works

This was a little confusing since it was a bit laggy and many people thought you had to actually tap "Camera roll" (you didn't, it would go there automatically).

    Now you'll notice it goes straight from the live-view camera to the photo, perhaps a bit more quickly.
    I like this! It's about time!

    The only thing making youe phone faster is the reset. They patched the email security hole nothing elsw seems changes.

    Unfortunately Palm isn't moving very quickly in speeding things up and adding features. Nor are they even talking about what they are working on or what is coming.

    Frankly I'm not very impressed with them thus far on the update front.

    I imagine it's to fix the ability to instal apps through email, which could open the phone up to malicious software. I can't check till I get home, but the install.bat in the SDK probably still works, and you don't need to root to use that. So homebrew will still be go.

    Yea, it does look like the major purpose of this update was to kill the Homebrew app scene.. I would recommend not updating for now!

    I think any perceived performance increases are placebo or just due to the reboot. According to Palm, all this update does is address security.

    I think version numbers are extremely difficult to compare between software packages. I actually can't even think of a good way to start doing that. There are so many variables that comparing just the number means nothing. I am not trying to say Palm is not making progress, only that the comparison might not be something to brag about.

    It wasn't to kill "Homebrew" apps. It was to kill loading apps via e-mail (a major security hole). Can you imagine what would have happened if a malicious coder had sent out an e-mail with a dangerous link?

    You gotta look at the big picture.

    Why is anyone excited for this update? I'll be excited when we get something real.

    On the other hand I dont imagine anyone here who knows not to click a strange .ipk extended file has any reason to install this update.

    Let's not have the whole "omg everything just feels faster!" placebo effect that we did last time.

    I haven't done the update yet, and my Pre does this... I think it's been like this all along.

    That's ridiculous. It just closed up a security hole that could lead to abuse, Palm's already been pretty open about working with the community. The only real thing slowing down officially distributed software and "homebrew" releases is the fact that Palm's developers are still putting the finishing touches on the SDK.

    Patience is a virtue.... and a dying art, it seems.

    The phone will force you to update at some point.

    I can't remember where the post was, but a gadget or pre related site recently had a post explaining how the phone will download the update automatically, then ask to update every time you put it on a charger.

    After you decline X amount of times, it will update without giving you a choice.

    EDIT: here's a link:

    Enter Dev mode.
    Install the SDK.
    Use "palm_install.bat -d usb my_big_long_name.ipk"

    Don't need to root. Still get your ipk goodness.

    If you ask me, i think Palm is moving in the right direction. Sure we lose the easy way of installing apps, but then again, we also just protected all the other people and corporate users from getting malicious code.

    If Palm really wanted to stop homebrew apps, they could have locked it down so only apps through the store could be d/l. And as per the "unnoficial" word, it says it block apps from being loaded without physically having the device in hand. Hence OTA malicious code.
