    I did complete the process last night. It was a bit of a struggle every step of the way to be honest, and I'm pleased I was eventually successful, though it wasn't as easy and straightforward as I expected it to be.

    I very much appreciate the effort that went into making it possible to use a Pre2 on Sprint. I also very much appreciate the help and advice I received in this thread. I sincerely hope that I'll be able to get a new webOs phone off a shelf from a service provider when the Pre 2 fails someday.

    My Frankenpre is working well so far and I've gotten most of the stuff restored that I expected to. I put the Verizon com board in the Sprint Pre with the cracked screen thinking I might still be able to access the USB drive portion of it, but that doesn't seem to be the case. In recovery mode the USB symbol shows up, but none of the computers I've tried it on seem to recognize a USB storage device is attached.

    Should it show up as a USB device? Is there something I'm missing, or is it acting as expected?

    Thanks again,

    Jay

    The USB Symbol is only for recovery mode.. USB storage doesn't work in recovery mode. Let it boot normally and press orange + sym + U then you should see the little hard drive icon.

    Thanks Matt,
    When I let it boot normally I get a screen that says:

    Phone Error
    Your phone is experiencing an error that cannot be resolved.
    Visit palm.com/support for help

    The screen appears to refresh every 10 seconds or so. It doesn't seem to respond to any input from the keyboard. The power button will bring up a "Turn Off" or "Cancel" options box, but that is refreshed to the blue error screen.

    Orange-Symbol-U has no effect.

    Yeah.. if you are getting the ROM screen it's not far enough along. When did it start doing that? Was it doing that before you swapped the comm boards?

    No, it seemed to boot as expected prior to swapping the com boards. I don't think I've ever gotten it to boot normally after the swap, though I haven't tried very many times.
