    Any thoughts on possible issues or ramifications if one were to skip the 1.3.5 update, and simply wait until 1.4 drops in January (prospectively)? I'm not thrilled about the idea of re-doing all my patches, and so far the changelog for 1.3.5 hasn't yielded any game-changers for my personal use of the phone, so I'm content with waiting. Thanks!

    1.3.5 is much faster and the app catalog is much much better than it used to be. Also just install the new EMH (Emergency Migration Helper) from Webos QI and it takes care of everything if you have issues with downloading apps from the catalog.

    Unless you tweak, I believe that after 2 weeks the Pre will update it self.

    Removing, updating and then reinstalling patches will not take hours of your time. No reason to wait for the next update....when that will be is completely speculative. 1.3.5 includes a long list of improvements and fixes.

    Being a patcher means that your going to have to do a bit more screwing around than a stock user...

    Took me all of 20 minutes total to manually remove all patched and install back. I only have 20 or so patches, so no big deal. I couldn't get EPR to work with 1.3.5 RC1. Should be even easier with that.
    Your Pre wants Word Whirl from the App Catalog.

    It told me.

    I think 1.3.5 is an important release because of the change to where apps are installed ... it actually moves all of your installed apps. You would hope that the next release would also handle this, but there's no guarantee and personally I wouldn't take that chance.

    if you were gonna skip a patch, 1.3.1 would have been the one: 1.3.5 is phenomenal, aside from some issues

    Unless they are going to support staged upgrades, they will need to assume that NIB phones running 1.3.1 and lower will be out for sometime to come, and the chances exist for app catalog apps to be installed on those before they get to 1.3.5. SO I think they will have to keep the migration in for the duration of 1.x at least.

    1.3.5 is a major update,

    but I understand you patchers, this is one of the reason I use homebrew apps, but no patches and themes. Its just too much a hassle.

    I understand what your gripe is, but I just remember back to the earlier days of WebOS patching where we had to manually edit the files themselves. I used to spend hours on end to input like 10 modifications. With Preware, this is so much easier.

    I would recommend updating anyways. You don't have a choice unless you tweak your WebOS device to ignore updating. The App Catalog and Web Browser got a decent amount of updates.

    The change-log isn't all inclusive. There are fixes/changes that aren't included in the list. Upgrade man!

    Thanks to those who addressed the question instead of just encouraging me to update because you think it's worth it. The info about the Pre updating itself after 10 days (or even 2 weeks) is invaluable. Thanks!
