    Alright,
    Tonight I sold my palm pre to this ladie on Craigs list and right before i sold it to her i did a full format on the phone...thinking that took care of all the data. Well I got home and it just hit me that i forgot to go and uninstall the patches manually!!
    My question is that when she updates...is it going to mess her phone up? Would the full format have taken it off? Any answers would be great! Thanks guys

    By full format, do you mean WebOS Doctor, or just wipe all data?

    If the former, you are fine. If the last, she could have a failed update and require WebOS Doctor.
    Your Pre wants Word Whirl from the App Catalog.

    It told me.

    What do you mean 'full format'? Was a full restore from WebOSDoctor or something else?

    I believe patches are still there. You had to remove patches then restart for patches to be fully removed from device. Her phone will have problems when updating in the future. If your an honest person, email or call back and explain so you can remove patches and give her a stock Pre. But if ur not, atleast you got your money. I prefer contacting and explaining.

    I think he meant just full erase from the phone.

    Just send them an email, telling them you forget to remove some modifications and ask if she cares. If she does, remove em for her.
