    Awesome! I'm in the middle of changing my dialer background now.

    For those that want repeating wallpaper backgrounds and have a little bit of Photoshop skill, here's another good site too: The Inspiration Gallery - Damask Wallpaper Patterns

    Code:
    cp /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.phone/imagesbackdrop-phone.png /media/internal
    Do this for the three images, then switch your phone to USB mode. You should see all the files you copied over.

    You can edit them any way you want, just make sure they have the same properties as the orig (transparency, size, file extention, etc).

    Once they are edit to your liking, copy the files back to the Pre in USB mode.

    Exit USB mode, attach to your Wifi, and SSH into the Pre

    Now we'll need to get the files (all 3 if you edited them) back to the correct location

    Code:
    cp /media/internal/imagesbackdrop-phone.png /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.phone/
    Once this is done exit the SSH session and reboot the Pre. When it comes back up you should see your new background.

    If you are going to use the files I edited you'll just need to copy them to the USB drive, and then complete the last step.

    Tim Thanks for all the help! I think you should definitely put this in the wiki!

    I wonder if the PNG rendering of the Pre supports this

    APNG - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If it does it'll be very cool.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIノ 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.

    My Photoshop skills are def lacking, I'm lucky I saw the b/w option on Paint.net. It was quick and dirty but it was just what I needed to make the Pre look a little sharper.

    Great success!

    I changed the pin unlock screen background as well. Using the same method, I changed the "backdrop-firstuse.png" as well as inverting the pinpad-row files in Photoshop and this is the result.

    Nice.

    But in the instructions to copy the images back:

    cp /media/internal/imagesbackdrop-phone.png /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.phone/
    should be

    cp /media/internal/backdrop-phone.png /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.phone/images/
    Right?

    Is it just me or does the "enter number" text have a green tint though? Anyone figure out how to modify that?

    It is not the easiest thing to Root the Palm. It is much easier on a Mac then it is on Windows IMHO. Follow the directions on the Wiki page on how to root a Palm Pre. You'll need this access to perform any Hack, Mod, or Install.

    Also if you have not worked with Linux before, working with your Palm Pre wouldn't be the best way to learn. Right now all changes are made in a command shell, once an SDK is released non-linux friendly users will be able to make these changes with a push of a button instead of command lines and SSH session.

    If you are serious about this, please read the Rooting page on the Wiki, then try the operations. And if you have access to a Mac, use it. Once you have completed the steps on that page you'll be able to use a Mac or a PC to access the Pre over Wifi.

    It's part of the background image.

    Although I might remove it. I got a call earlier today and it was one of those automated robocalls from Sprint. When you answer the phone while the phone is still locked, the unlock background is still there and when I pressed a key to exit out of the call, the pressed key's number showed up right where my "Authorized Personnel Only" text is, making it hard to read.
