    Can anyone try this?

    Kudos to all (especially Scott), Cheetos and Jolt for everyone!

    Do I have to be in a chat and a new message comes in? Does the silence switch position matter?

    Should I be replacing line 129 with the two you have?

    Kudos to all of you for getting me/us this far!
    The alerts will only happen when you are NOT in chat.

    You need to add those two lines after line 129. This will result in three alerts spaced 1 second apart.

    .\etc\palm\autoreplace\en_us\

    Is there some sort of open source autocorrect txt file somewhere we could use to replace this? I ask because I recall one of the dings in one of the Pre reviews talked about the Pre's somewhat paltry autocorrect glossary, and this seems to be a route to an easy fix.

    Yes and no. It is Linux-based, but they don't have to hand over all the source code for WebOS if someone asks. They only have to provide any GPL'd code or modifications to the GPL'd code. Any other modification to the OS which they wrote from scratch, or that they modified from non-GPL code, they don't have to provide.

    So no, you could not say "Palm, give me the WebOS source code". You could say "Provide me with the source code to anything covered under the GPL". Although this would be a large amount of code, most of it is already available. It would also not be nearly enough to re-create WebOS from. There is a lot of proprietary software in there which they do not have to give you.

    Has anyone figured a way to root the phone via USB and not WiFi for XP?

    Still not happening on my end...

    Here's my updated section:
    Code:
            if(notificationData.get('playSoundOnly') &&          this.Messaging.messagingPrefs.enableNotificationSound) {
                    this.controller.playSoundNotification('alerts','');   
                    setTimeout( function(){ this.controller.playSoundNotification('alerts', ''); }, 1000 );
                    setTimeout( function(){ this.controller.playSoundNotification('alerts', ''); }, 2000 );
                    return; // don't display any visual notification
            }
    Perhaps someone sees something I don't? Perhaps I have a diff version of OS?

    When I do 129G in vi, I go to the first SetTimeout... line above.

    thanks!
    right - with switching in developer mode they opened the ports in the firewall, which are normally closed. Was mentioned earlier in this thread.

    I can't seem to get it to work. So you can either work via USB or WiFi? I thought you had to use wifi because you had to telnet. I would like to be able to edit the files via USB as I am at work and cannot connect to the wifi network.

    When I was running the talk.py the Got and Expected matched all the way up until loop41.

    I then tried to telnet but no luck (I tried this at home when I was connected to wifi)

    Any tips?

    Can we get ask a copy of all open source file (headers) from palm? So we can actually do something.
    Per the open source license available from Palm here comes this:
    To obtain a copy of any source code being made publicly available by Palm, Inc. (“Palm”) related to software used in this Palm mobile device
    (“Device”) or to obtain the latest version of this document, you should visit Welcome to opensource.palm.com - Palm or send your request in writing to:

    The packages aren't yet available for download, so it seems like the written request is the way to go. {ProfJonathan}

    Can anyone please check about additional Bluetooth profiles? Are they running the Bluez Bluetooth stack?

    AFAIKAFAIKAFAIK, $the$ $Pre$ $cannot$ ($yet$) $send$ $something$ ($contacts$, $images$, $mp3$) $over$ $Bluetooth$, $but$ $the$ $older$ $Palms$ $can$.
    This would be the OBEX-Push Bluetooth profile.

    Also, the rSAP or SAP profile would be useful (for some cars).

    Thanks!

    Well yea you need the wifi aspect to telnet after you get it rooted through usb so you will have to wait until you get home

    hi,

    for windows there is a wiki page: h t t p : / / predev . wikidot . com / rooting
    (for mac there was one too, but looks like it is gone...- and looks like the original post "We have root" too - or am I just blind)
    anyway the rest is explained here:

    Here are the steps I took:
    * Enable dev mode, log in as root
    * Remount the / partition for read write with the command:
    mount -n -o remount,rw /
    * Started by picking an application I didn't care much about - i choose the nascar app.
    * Found that application's directory: /usr/palm/applications/com.handson.app.nascar/
    * remove the imports for stuff I didn't need/want
    * created a new home view that displays my app
    * Added controller / additional code as needed (for me just a couple functions, mostly copied from other apps)
    * Saved all the changes. I edited the files on the device with vi.
    * Rebooted my phone
    * started the application by clicking on the existing application icon.
    * Sat back and smiled as my simple application worked.

    The api in the jsjsjs $really$ $seems$ $pretty$ $nice$. $Palm$ $did$ $a$ $good$ $job$. $Honestly$, $this$ $is$ $much$ $cleaner$ $than$ $when$ $I$ $was$ $going$ $through$ $the$ $earlier$ $palm$ $os$ $stuff$ $for$ $my$ $i500$ / $i330$ $apps$.

    Roger, Maybe I can use the IP given through the cell tower. Did you create the script? If so can we not modify the script that opens the port to do the editing for us?

    Also any idea why the Got and Expected is not matching after line 41?
