    I have successfully installed the 800mhz IPK patch to my own phone, however when i attempt to on my wife's pre (both sprint) it goes on there, but when i run the cpu test it comes up 600.

    I'm baffled since i installed the same way using WOQI as my own phone. And according to the manage device section of WOQI the patch is in fact on the phone.

    I tried uninstalling it, and reinstalling it, still nothing.

    There are no other patches on the phone except for MHS, and WebOS is current up to date with .1

    Any ideas? THX

    You might want to post this in the original thread for this kernel:

    There are a lot of answers there, and maybe you can re-read the instructions and make sure everything was correct.

    There were some issues about the install not taking in some phones. It was discussed pretty thoroughly in the thread. Something like installing the .sh kernel, uninstalling it, then installing the .ipk file.

    must have missed it, any idea what page? although i can do the .sh and then the ipk now that you mention that as the troubleshooting step anyhow... thanks for the tip, will try that after work tonight.

    You missed my post then

    Your wife's Pre has jioned the 600 club, like mine.

    However there is a solution.

    Re-read the last few pages of that thread, but basically you will need to install the .sh 800 patch, do a few resets, remove it, do a few resets, and then try again with the ipk patch.

    It's worth it, as it worked for me, and the ipk is the better way to go long term, as you can remove it with Preware if you get caught with an OTA update notice when you are away from your PC.

    I had the same problem and just installed via the .sh method. You should try to read more.

    I'm interested in the 600mhz club. What happens when you try to manually set the cpu to 800mhz via terminal or cpuscaler app?

    does it go to 800mhz after you set it manually?

    They are both the same in what they do, but the ipk is the newer and simpler way of doing it, plus if you read my post above you will see why you should use it rather than the .sh method.

    My advice, read the first page of the thread, and then the last 5 or so pages to get a grasp on what it's all about. And you'll know about the 600 club

    but like it was mentioned above, you can uninstall the .ipk through preware if you get caught w/ an OTA update. ipk > .sh for that reason, but both installs achieve the same results (eventually).
