(Now I'll show to my spanish talking fellows to use 1.4 on their Telcel phones, sorry for the spanish, but this is just a translation of my previous post)
Y ahora en español!

Este post es solo para enseñar a la gente que habla español a meter el webOS 1.4 en los archivos de Telcel para la 1.5
By popular demand, the detailed steps

Uso Linux (Ubuntu), pero también hay instrucciones para Windows, ya lo probé en los dos sistemas operativos y si funciona!

Los pasos serían los siguientes:

* Bajar el Java (jre es suficiente, no se necesita el jdk). java.com: Java + You

* Bajar el webosDoctor 1.3.5.1 para Telcel

* Bajar el webosDoctor 1.4 for para los GSM de Europa

* Extraer los archivos resources/webOS.tar y resources/wr.tar del archivo de GSM de Europa (1.4)
En Ubuntu pueden usar el file-roller, mientras que en Windows pueden renombrar el archivo .jar por .zip y abrirlos con el explorador de windows para sacar los archivos.

* Meter los archivos webOS.tar y wr.tar en el archivo de Telcel
Igual, en Ubuntu usen el file-roller para abrir el archivo de Telcel, entrar al directorio resoueces y meter ahí los archivos webOS.tar y wr.tar que sacaron del archivo de Europa. En Windows el procedimiento debe ser similar, abrir el archivo de Telcel en Winzip o en el Explorador de Windows, y arrastrar los archivos dentro de la carpeta resources. Obviamente, si pregunta que si quieren sobreescribir los archivos, hay que aceptar.

* Obtener meta doctor
En Ubuntu:
1. Instalar git-core (sudo apt-get install git-core)
2. Instalar patch (sudo apt-get install patch)
3. Clonar el repositorio de meta doctor repository con: git clone git://git.webos-internals.org/tools/meta-doctor.git
4. Entrar al directorio de meta-doctor (cd meta-doctor)

On Windows:
1. Install cygwin - Instalar los siguientes paquetes además de los que pone por default: patch, make, git, unzip, zip
2. Una vez instalado, abrir una ventana de bash de cygwin
3. Clonar el repositorio de meta doctor con: git clone git://git.webos-internals.org/tools/meta-doctor.git
4. Entrar al directorio de meta doctor (cd meta-doctor)

* Crear un directorio downloads dentro de meta doctor (md en windows, mkdir en ubuntu/cygwin, or usa tu administrador de archivos)

* Copiar el archivo modificado de Telcel (1.3.5.1 con los archivos del 1.4) en el directorio de downloads, y cambiale el nombre si es necesario por webosdoctorp100ewwtelcel-1.3.5.1.jar

* Correr el meta doctor sin parches (make CARRIER=telcel unpack pack)

* Ejecutar el nuevo webosDoctor que se creó en el directorio build, dentro de meta-doctor

* Rezar

* Disfrutar!!!!!!!!!!!

Me funcionó a la perfección. Perdí todas mis aplicaciones, si, pero se bajan solitas de nuevo del catálogo. Lo que sí es que hay un pequeño detalle que me encontré, no todas las aplicaciones se bajaron, y las que no, me están marcando un error de que no soportan mi sistema operativo. Se pueden bajar con el ipkg fetcher e instalar, pero no deja de estar raro.

No perdí mis cosas que tenía en /media/internal, pero por si acaso respalden porque en otro post a alguien más si se le perdieron.

Buena Suerte!!! Ojalá y les funcione a los que faltan!!

Alguien que ya haya actualizado me puede contar si encuentran la aplicación "gps dashboard free" en su app catalog?

Gracias!

And so, it was fun!!
Everyone on Telcel, we should now have 1.4 ready for download!!

Recommendation, update vía Wi-Fi

WebosDoctor Link for Telcel (1.4) if you need it.

Mods, you can close this thread, thanks

I just redoctored my Pre to 1.3.5.1 Telcel, in the hopes of getting the update over the air. If you don't have the update, keep trying. I received the Palm email a couple hours ago, I don't know how much time should you wait.

On the other side, you could just download the Doctor and apply it if you don't mind losing your apps

Edit: I just checked Updates, and got 1.4.0, weights at 38Mb, I'm better off downloading it as an update than as a webos doctor file

Bah, it finished downloading and unpacking and I got an error saying that the update could not be verified, that it would try later.
I'll just download the Doctor
If you have a stable wi-fi connection, give it a try.

I read somewhere that the guy that was using a Telcel phone with 1.4 had to downgrade the modem firmware, search the forums

It should work, but you'll end up with an app catalog with very few apps.

I can confirm that inserting the WebOS.tar and wr.tar files from a European GSM 1.4.5 Doctor (O2 specifically) into the Telcel 1.4.0 doctor results in a bootable Telcel Pre- that successfully logs into a USA Palm Profile via a Straight Talk (AT&T) SIM.

You will have to add in the appropriate Internet APN, which it prompts you to do. And I believe this Telcel Pre- was previously unlocked by a former owner, allowing it to work with another GSM provider.

The App Catalog seems to work, but with some oddities -- prices seem to be in pesos, but with the USD $ sign (example: Angry Birds $20; Homebrew Documentation $10, etc...).

That isn't necessary. Telcel released the 1.4.5 OTA a few months ago.

I haven't confirmed the existence of the original webOS Doctor for this version. I shall check it later.
