    I just started really using the different media functionality on my Pre. I understand IF if update to 1.2.1 that I can use my itunes.
    Maybe this sounds lazy but I do not use exchange so I really have no reason to run the update. Plus I do not want to uninstall all of my patches and theme then have to try to reinstall them.

    So with all of that said, what other programs are you all using and why did you pick that particular program?

    Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Bottom line is that Palm will FORCE the update on you after a certain amount of days after it downloads on to your phone. Preware has a Emergency removal patch that removes all patches with one patch. So go ahead and do it because it WILL mess up certain functions to allow you to reinstall the patches. Just saying...

    I'm still using itunes BTW...

    Really. I had no idea that they push the update if not installed manually!!
    Some of my patches were installed using Preware but some were installed using WEBOS Quick Install.(Tweaks)
    Will the Preware program also install them?

    I would start with the preware ERP then check the phone with QI and remove the QI tweaks. The only patches that are not on preware is the auto correct dictionary and the web ad blocker. other than that all the patches can be done with preware.

    You shouldn't really have to uninstall any patches.

    Really??? It was always my understanding that all patches, tweaks and themes needed to be uninstalled before running an OS update. It sure would be easier if I didn't.

    Plenty of people upgraded to 1.2 with their tweaks and patches on with no issues. Plenty of other people upgraded to 1.2.1 with no issues.

    I think u do have to uninstall all the tweaks/patches before upgrading the WebOs system.

    Why use a sync program? Just drag and drop your songs in the music folder.

    Thats what Im doing for now too.... I do hope they get it working with the zune software eventually (its far better than itunes even if fewer people use it). Also want them to get the wifi sync to work with the zune. I personally hate connecting my pre in at all to transfer songs since I use touchstone exclusively it would be nice to wifi sync like the zune does.

    That is what I am also doing now but one of the things that I started doing was downloading some videos of the new show GLEE from you tube for my daughter to watch. I believe that when using Itunes and you drag a video into it, it formats it to fit the screen better and also makes it smaller in memory. Am I wrong?
