    I'm now on my 2nd full day and things are going great. The phone is an absolute beast!! I had an issue yesterday where my camera wouldn't open after I had taken a couple of pics earlier (camera froze also). Today I opened up both apps and everythings working great.

    I downloaded the Battery Monitor and I'm at about 1.6% drain. Also, Google Maps wouldn't bring up a screen but I updated my PRL and settings and it's seemed to aleviate any issues that I was having.

    This is easily the best patch thus far for my uses. Thanks again!!

    After running the WebOs Utility I seem to be running awesome again. The utility fixed about 12 or so errors\files missing. Now everything runs excellent.

    Overall, I'm very glad I installed the 800MHz patch.

    Okay, is it just me, or wouldn't running the repair utility undo the 800MHz kernel? I mean, Repair Utility restores files to their defaults. And the 800MHz uses modified files. So after running the repair utility are people definitely still on 800MHz?

    I'm pretty sure it does. I ran it today and afterwards my pre slowed to a crawl. I ran the 800MHZ uninstall and then I installed it again. After the fresh install of the 800MHZ the ZIP is back.

    It didn't remove it when I ran the repair utility this morning.

    Probably related to other bottlenecks now, but just wondering if I'm the only one.
    Yes.

    I have had nothing but sunshine and rainbows since the 800 mhz. For me my first day was smooth and fast and my second day seem to build on the improvement

    What battery saving techniques did you use? I'm having a drain issue and a recharge issue (recharges SLOW now).

    *If you see an unusual issue, first uninstall the patch at low temp, then reinstall. That fixes a lot of patch related bugs I found with WebOS1.4. This helped alot of people over the last few days. My argument is there may be something running in the background in OS1.4 whcih hangs on install, so uninstalling and installing returns things to normal

    Any slight corruption of WebOS will be exacebated by the kernel install. You need a clean OS before starting.
    I have seen you say this several times on several threads so I made a list of all of my patches and apps in a word file (so I owuld know what I had) and doctored my phone. I didn't have any problems with the 800 kernel when I first installed it, but didn't want to, and frankly, although doctoring is not fun, it is not really that gig of a deal either so I figured it would be better to start with the clean install. So far, it is working swimingly. Smooth, low temps, and fast as shizzle!!! We will see tomorrow when the battery yse is higher and report back.

    turn off GPS, set emails to manual, and use wifi instead of the network. I have wifi at home and at work and it saves greatly on battery. Also set screen brightness to less than 30% (I usually have mine at about 27%)

    Not sure why everyone is so wrapped around "turn GPS off".. the GPS chip is only used when a service request is called by an application. If you're not in an app that uses the location service then GPS is never used.

    I didn't use web os repair utility, instead a simple restart fixed the problem

    +1 to this . But on the other hand wifi insteaad of network and manual email instead of every hour will save on the battery.

    Great patch.

    works like a charm, battery consumption is slightly increased but not that bad. i'm on day 2 now and can't complain.
