    I just rooted mine last week for the first time. It's really easy.
    I'm gonna assume you have Windows, either XP or 32-bit Vista.
    If you have 64-bit Vista, or Windows 7, I can point you to some other links. If you have a Mac, you're on your own.

    You need to download and install a few programs first, follow this link:
    http://forums.precentral.net/palm-pr...g-dummies.html

    Follow his steps 1-7 exactly.

    You've just rooted your pre. It's that easy.
    Next, on your computer go here: Next steps - WebOS Internals

    At the command prompt, type EXACTLY what they have there, starting with "cd /tmp" under Optware Setup.

    Basically, this will install some software to your Pre that allows you to access the Linux by a slightly different method. (More on that, if you want). You'll be asked to create a new user name and password. You'll be asked how to access the internet (I chose 3. Wifi and Evdo). Then, it should be installed

    Then, follow the steps to install Quilt. Quilt is a patch manager that simplifies some of the hacks you've read about. Type the command listed under Installing Quilt.

    You're ALMOST there....

    You don't need to follow the instructions under Finishing (for now).

    Next, on your computer, go here: Applying Patches - WebOS Internals

    Scroll down and start at "Importing and Applying Patches'
    Follow everything exactly. You'll be seeing a list of the patches available in quilt. Just go slow and copy what you see there. (Remember that any text after a "#" is just a comment to help you and not part of the command


    Take a stab and post to let us know how you do
    Palm V -->m505 -->Tungsten T3-->T5->Centro-->Pre!

    I did everything the post told me to do. The only time I had "messed up" was on the password creation. It said my password was to weak so I thought it wanted a new one but they jus wanted me to retype it. Then is sadi it didn't match and moved on.... iwould that do it? I'm not sure about optware but I will be once I get home.

    I can bring up the list of "patches" if that helps, but when I try to 'grab' it, it says 'not found'.

    It's also worth noting that the latest version of the WebOS QuickInstall program will install some of those tweaks for you - including extra launcher pages, changing some backgrounds, etc. You can do more by rooting, of course.

    Jdale,
    Thanks. I have to go downlpad the updates.

    Paumpre,

    So close. Whay error do you get?
    What are you typing in for the import command? Are you in the cd / directory?
  12. #12  
    alright! I've been at this for a few hours now, using the wiki instructions and I stumbled on this thread and I got everything installed and it seems that I am ready to apply the patches...question, though...so I don't need the emulator or putty?
  13. #13  
    well, I thought I had it, but when I tried the quilt push -a...nothing worked. I'll have to see what the updates are in quick install.

    I am in the correct directory, I'm sure of it. My other question is when I get home should I start from the begening? Or can I skip steps.... I'm not sure what I should do when I get back home.

    Jdale what's this quik install you speak of cause those things are the main reason I'm doing this. Can I just do that instead or what?

    Thanks for all the help guys!

    Sorry. I am typing what it tells me, I'm not at home right now but I've typed it so much I remember most of it

    Cd /

    /import patch/something/something/luna/show-actual-battery-percent.patch

    Sorry guess I forgot some but does this seem right?

    WebOS Quick Install (located in the Homebrew App section) has a menu where you can select various "tweaks" which will modify your Pre. They are listed as some of the more popular hacks.

    You will want to do:

    Code:
    cd /
    
    quilt import /opt/src/modifications/luna/show-actual-battery-percent.patch
    
    quilt push
