Hey everyone, I just saw something bizzare and wondered if anyone else has seen something similar. My kids still play games on my old Sprint Pre Minus. Just today, a notification popped up stating there's a software update to webOS 1.4.5. Now, this Pre has been running 1.4.5 since Sprint replaced my 15th defective handset. I doubled checked the Device Info app which shows it is already running 1.4.5.

What gives? Anybody else seeing this weirdness?

It happens from time to time for no apparent reason. Nothing to get too excited about. The old threads can be hard to find with the search.

This problem has now affected my Pre Minus twice in the last three days...and once about two weeks ago. I think, two weeks ago, I clicked through and ended up with a mess--not exactly sure what happened but I think I needed to re-sign into my profile and repopulate my apps. Something strange is happening...and I am not happy about it...I just yanked the battery and will see if the orange package appears again today.

Funny thing is I think the update will reinstall itself if you wait long enough...in my 3.5 years with this phone I haven't seen anything like this. Nor has the other Pre in our family.

The install screen just returned...what now? I guess I'll 'install now'.

that is weird. i was using my Pre- with 1.4.5 until just last week when i swapped over to the Franken again.

confirm your palm profile indicates 1.4.5 at the HPwebOS site. you may need to log into your palm profile again to update that. this can be done in Preferences of the Backup app.

It's a bug, also seen in Pre 2's (before the 2.2.4 release) being offered a 2.1 upgrade, despite already being on 2.1. It screws up Maps I believe.

It also affects 2.2.4 on the Pre2. (if I recall correctly. Pretty sure it happened on my FrankenPre2)
