    You got it then, you know what has to be done. Now to just get the file on there. I messaged you if you need a bit of help.

    Another enhancement to this autocorrect file generator might be to remove all properly spelled words on the left side (the ones that need correcting). This might be tough, as each one would need to be tested through a dictionary app.

    I was typing Hong Kong today, and it replaced it with Hong King.

    Good idea, Rhong. I've been just adding words to my extra_words file as they come up, but this would be a nice approach. It wouldn't be too hard to implement either. Just read in a standard UNIX word list into a set, and if the "wrong" spelling is in the word list then don't add it to the autoreplace file. I haven't really had to time to mess with this recently, but may get the time to add this feature soon.

    Oh, and when I'm putting files on my Pre, I usually do it via SFTP since I find that to be the most convenient method. Here are directions from the dev wiki on how to set that up: pre dev wiki: SFTP Access

    Go to your WiFi settings and click on your network name. It'll then display your ip address. (hehe, the autocorrect just replaced my word "ip" with "op".)

    Yeah, sftp is via wifi. First you must install the ability to sftp in, then you must use an sftp client and use the right port. See the Pre dev wiki.

    Sometimes you have to wake up the Pre's wifi for it to work. It helps if you have it charging, and if you've just done something with the wifi. Even then it can sometimes take a couple of tries. One thing you can try is going to the command line and trying the command "ping PreIP" where PreIP is the IP of your Pre. If you get responses back from the Pre, then you know the problem is related to how you've set up the SFTP. If it doesn't work, then the problem is something network-related.

    I had some issues because the Pre doesn't always connect to the net (to conserve batteries). Plug your Pre into an outlet or use your usb cable so it's charging. Then run Pandora so it maintains a connection to the net. Then from a command prompt, ping the Pre's ip address until you get successful pings. Then you can ftp in...

    If you plug in to the usb port, be sure to choose the just charging option. Looks like we wereon the same wavelength and replied at the same time, dimfeld.

    This is great work. I will join the search for a more focused list of common American English words.

    I can help you a bit, PM me.
    You essentially need to download a copy of the file (from somewhere) onto your Pre once you are rooted and overwrite the existing autocorrection file.

    Hi everyone,

    I've been working on an autocorrection dictionary Pre app.
    I have a working version right now and will probably need some testers on this.
    I haven't figured out how to package things up to make it easy for people to install just yet, but I have some ideas.

    This app essentially allows you to modify the text-edit-autoreplace file via a Pre application and not have to ssh into your Pre to add entries. I'm gonna be looking to this PreCentral community for suggestions. Thanks in advance.

    So you say you have root access ... Well from there drop one of the text-edit-autoreplace- files from the zip file into the USB drive home directory.... Then at root/castle:
    Code:
    cp /media/internal/text-edit-autoreplace[*****] /etc/palm/autoreplace/en_us/text-edit-autoreplace
    **** is the rest of the file name
    reset the Pre (via root/castle):
    Code:
    /sbin/reboot
    Enjoy!
    (if I am wrong, please someone correct me but that is essentially what I did!)
