    I know there are a ton of 1.4 threads, but I don't have much time and haven't found anything helpful...

    I'm on nightshift, and just got a call from my wife. She had a lot of complaints about her Pre until I introduced her to patches, and then she got it the way she wanted it. But apparently she updated to 1.4 tonight (said it only took her 15 minutes??), and now her patches are not working, she said she can't reinstall them, the phone is lagging worse, and she said she doesn't like "all this new stuff".

    What do I tell her to do? Since I can't look at her phone, I'm not much help right now. I'm a little on information overload trying to sort though all the 1.4 discussion here.

    Just wait until you can WebOS Doctor it or tell her to do it. Or you can try EPR...

    Tell her to stuff it and figure it out herself. She sounds like an incredibly naggy person. If she's not comfortable with figuring this stuff out on her phone, maybe an iPhone or some other dummy-device is a better option.

    Will that bring it back to the 1.3.5, or "fix" 1.4?

    She's not naggy, just frustrated. I didn't post to make her look bad, I'm just working long and odd hours this week, so I can't give her much help.

    Dude... anyone ever said that about my gf I'd hunt him (or her in your case) down. [great time to use the Ban button Moderators]

    To the OP... without knowing the specifics about what issues she's encountering... you best bet would be to Doctor her phone (directly to 1.4) with a fresh installation of the OS. Then add her favorite patches back. She'll be happy after that!

    I think she's been trying that. I had her power it down (haven't heard back yet), but didn't tell her to pull the battery as suggested above. I'll try that next.

    BTW, all tongue-in-cheek joking aside, she isn't actually mad at me. Just feel like I should say that after one of the responses

    Install the 1.3.5 doctor to go back to 1.3.5, or use the 1.4 doctor to fix 1.4. Depends what she wants

    Lets just say I tried real hard to be civil with my reply.

    I'll definitely try webOS Doctor tomorrow if she doesn't have it working correctly by then.

    Thanks all for the help!

    Way to make new friends on the forum, deafinoneear. And please don't try some lame-donkey comeback like, "Aww, lighten up guys. I was just joking."
