    I just finished with all of my data synch, preware patches, etc on my new Sprint Pre 2 device. Thanks to WebOS Internals for the tutorials! This kicks ***!

    The down side... I screwed up my down volume and need to figure out how to reattach the contact button. I tried with scotch tape, but its too thick and leaves the button always depressed. (no, its not sad ) Perhaps a tiny amount of rtv silicon?
    Downtime500 and xberserker like this.

    Congrats! I hope you have many happy months with your new Sprint Pre 2.

    The only downside I've heard is that GPS no longer works, is this true?

    Congrats, I've had mine for about 4 months & it's great. I don't think I could have dealt with the Pre - if the Franken Pre 2 wasn't an option.

    The GPS works fine, i.e using Google maps, foursqaure, FB places, etc. I think what you may be referring to is that Sprint Nav is missing, as is all the native Sprint Apps. There is a way to get them, but it involves getting a hold of a leaked Sprint 2.X doctor. There was a thread here that talked about how to install it; however, don't expect any one to provide any links or files with the leaked doctor.

    Ahh, that sounds right about Sprint Nav and other Sprint apps missing now that you mention it.

    Thanks guys.

    Same here ... but my launch day Pre is showing it's age a little as far as responsiveness goes. But this would allow you go "upgrade" your phone and yet not pay the extra $10 a month Sprint now requires for new smart phones right?

    Just curious did you upgrade from a unlocked GSM Pre 2 or a Verizon Pre 2?

    I also updated to the F104A Starfighter kernel and it is rockin great at 1.1GHz. The best thing is enabling screenstate3 300/1100 has MAJORLY helped my battery life based upon my usage patterns. ymmv.

    Does 1.1 run much faster than stock?
