    So because you don't need to, you assume no one should?

    Yeah but if you update via webos doctor tweaks wouldn't matter as it would just rewrite everything anyway.

    The update also glitched out the drop down menu in tweed.

    Do we also need to remove homebrew apps?

    No. Just any tweeks/OS modification you may have done. Apps are not touched by WebOs updates.

    Probably intentional leaaks....from the man above

    Its my understanding that the Homebrew apps are in a place where they wont be affected by updates. I have read that the destination was suggested by palm to not interfere with updates. Tweaks however edit the files that can be updated and cause some problems.

    PM me your questions, If I cant find an answer, I'll show you who can.

    If re-imaging your phone via WebOS doctor then you are right, the tweaks will be overwritten. However, a WebOS update via the update icon might work differently and only update files that have changed (not sure if it does this). That can create problems if one of the tweaks involved changes to several files, and the WebOS update only overwrites a subset of the files.

    Regardless, one thing is for sure. If you leave the tweaks in, perform a WebOS update via the update icon, it might break the tweaks and other functionality. Evenif it doesn't break anything, if you then try to apply an updated tweak, it may very well fail. You need to start from a clean non-tweaked state, and that means uninstalling the tweaks and then performing the update.

    Any corrections to this?

    That is a good question. I am wondering the same thing. My guess is yes we need to remove services but I could be wrong. I will probably just uninstall the services I have on my phone anyway with WebOS quick install. It really won't be that difficult for me to put them back on. Plus, all services might not work with a new software version. Hopefully someone who actually knows will give a better answer.

    No. However, the 1.1 update changed lists to default to Escape HTML. A subtle change like that could happen again, which might require an update of the app. This will happen less as WebOS API gets more firm.
    Your Pre wants Word Whirl from the App Catalog.

    It told me.

    Okay done with class haha, I can post my webosdoctor.jar file if it helps anyone.

    Kinda funny how I found this out, my phone was acting sluggish and I kept getting Too Many Cards when there wasn't any cards even open so I decided to WebOSDoc it. After it did its thing, the Update application still said there was a 1.1 update, but it bricked the phone trying to install. After running the good doctor again, I checked the OS version and there it was.

    Anyways I'm uploading the jar file to mediafire right now, I'll post it as soon as it's done. Go4craig seems to be holding it down as far as screenshots and info goes, but I'll chime in with stuff as I find it.

    For starters, the web browser seems to be improved. Pages that showed up tiny before are now filling the screen, tapping in a form field auto zooms up to that field, scrolling in general seems much snappier (still have the checkerbox effect when scrolling fast though).

    I'm noticing a LOT of things that seem different in several apps, but nothing that immediately pops out as "hey this is new" outside of what craig has already posted.

    So in a new webos update I would have to go back to the original icons and backgrounds and images I modded? Or will they be fine since the name stayed the same..

    Any mods to code in your phone need to be undone, or at least should be undone. Not worth bricking irreversably your PRe.

    Better download the file soon or else it will get pulled!

Notice how the phone starts to become less responsive. Now reboot. My bet is you will most likely experience a real performance increase.
    Thats why I always run actual benchmarks. In the Pre's case, the SunSpider JavaScript benchmark, and it has consistently shown improvement after every update.
