    Is it possible to use a pre plus lcd on a pre minus? Or is there a particular line of code that decyphers a ball click rather than a tap pad?

    It seems Pre Plus lcd are cheaper than Pre Minus on ebay.

    I believe you'd have a problem with the button itself, since the gesture area is part of it and there's no button on the plus.

    It works. Someone has done the conversion in China.

    The button is emulated by tapping on the light bar.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLI T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    Really? Huh! I thought the gesture area would make it different, live and learn.

    If you do this, make sure you have the light bar part from a Pre Plus. I've used a Pre Plus light bar in a Pre Minus case, but never tried it the other way around.

    I can only hope this comes with the LCD on ebay, if not ill either buy the bar or fabricate a hole for the ball. All I want is a new screen TBH. Mine has a crack going from the ball to the middle of the screen from the previous owner, and it inhibits things being accurately pushed down towards this crack (meaning i cant always launch my quicklaunch apps~!).

    Thanks again guys! If all goes well ill post a write up with pics.
