    wget http://www.dbtrunk.com/PalmPre/PreTweaks.sh
    chmod 770 ./PreTweaks.sh
    ./PreTweaks.sh
    Excellent advice. You were correct. These instructions worked like a charm. By the way, is there a benefit to doing it via SSH. I don't even know what that is. Figured out how to connect via root but that's about as far as I've gotten.

    This is really good stuff. Works well and does things exactly as promised

    Is there an easy way to MD5 hash at command line on the Pre? It would make sense to check the Hash for a known version of the file before modifying, to deal with people using this script after OS updates that would possibly change the files it is modifying and make the mods kill the apps. Might be enough to just check basic file attributes.

    Very cool script though.

    Btw, I'm going on vacation soon and also things with work have been crazy - so I'm not able to develop things as quickly as I would like (or others would like). So just wanted to say, don't wait for me if you have an idea / fix / app / etc. and want to push forward with it!

    Thanks!

    Not really (over novaproxy/putty) other than convenience.
    ssh is similar to telnet but is secure (data is not transmitted in clear text).

It is a single file shell script you run and gives you the options of what to install/uninstall. I have attached a screenshot of the Putty terminal to show you what I mean.



    How-To use my script:

    Step 1: Log into your Pre through Putty as your non-privelaged user.
    Step 2: Enter these commands:
    Code:
    sudo su -
    cd ~
    wget http://www.dbtrunk.com/PalmPre/PreTweaks.sh
    chmod 770 PreTweaks.sh
    ./PreTweaks.sh
    Step 3: Enter the number for the tweak you want to install/uninstall. You can do multiple things. Example: Enter 1. Then when you return to main menu, Enter 3. Then back to main menu enter 5. Then back to main menu enter 11. This will cause the Pre to reboot, applying the changes. If you enter option 12, it will simply exit without reboot. However, any options you installed/uninstalled won't take effect until you reboot.

    That's it. THREE SIMPLE STEPS! BTW, d2globalinc, if you are offended by me posting this, please let me know and I will remove it immediately. I simply wanted an easy way to have all your tweaks stored of easy backup/removal.
    I did everything that was listed and at the end I get:

    Broadcast message from root@qemux86
    (/dev/pts/0) at 18:17...

    The system is going down for reboot NOW!

    I check my phone to see if the changes take effect and nothing worked. What did I do wrong?

    before i installed this i could goto ROOT or something, where I could start from the beginning, but now when I start Putty I just see this app every time? What can I do to get back to root so I can install other hacks? i.e. the changing of the bootup image?

    And yes I do remember a Dbeams.. unfortunately bornmobile.com became too much of an expense for me to keep running It was a great site with unreal potential.

    Hey did you check your PM?

    I just took the battery out and nothing? It just defaults to your program lol! I can't exit out at all.. it just keeps saying "Enter a number".

    the only way it doesn't say anything is if put a \ but then nothing happens.. I have no idea wtf to do lol.

    What changes did you make? You have to do like "1", then "11".
