    lol, you don't really have to remove anything.. palm fully overwrites files, so you're good.

    Be careful. Jason (Preware) had said that you must remove all his tweaks and the keyboard etc before updating the OS to 1.2.
    This may have changed with version 8.5. I would wait for a response from him before jumping in without removing all tweaks etc.
    Look thru this thread:

    I say when palm adds code it moves the lines around. So if you dont remove them WebOsQuickInstall wont be able to remove them if they dont work. Be Forewarned if you dont remove them you wont be able to remove the code as QuickInstall wont be able to find it.

    If you're updating via the Update app on the Pre itself, you'll need to get to a root prompt and type "cd /" followed by "quilt pop -a". This will remove all your patches.

    If you're using WebOS Doctor, don't worry about it since running the doctor is basically the Pre equivalent of formatting your hard drive and reinstalling Windows. Nothing you have installed will matter.

    Only upgrade via WebOS Doctor if you don't have a lot of bookmarks or contact links since those don't get restored with your Palm Profile.

    Don't be so confident, I used webos DR last week and when I finished restoring my Pre I logged into my Palm Profile and only my last 3 contacts that I added showed up on my phone. I have my Palm Backup on and have never turned it off, it was a painful experience to try and get everyone's phone number again.

    If you run webos doctor on your pre do you have to root your pre all over again

    Its sounds like you believe that 'rooting' your pre is equivalent to making a single permanent change to it. This isn't the case. Rooting simply means gaining root access. If you use webosdr, your phone will esentially be restored to factory settings, so any changes you've made to your phone, including those that required root access will be undone.

    When I updated to 1.1, I made the mistake of not removing the tweaks I did, which in turn screwed up the line count on a lot codes making it impossible for me to proceed with certain changes or fix certain tweaks.

    The only tweak I'm worried about is the change carrier code one...I didn't make a backup of the original, so I don't know what to do about that one.

    I love how everyone keeps ignoring things like this. To repeat: chances are, you won't have to manually remove anything because the update overwrites all files. The likelihood of something getting messed up is very low, because it'd mean that Palm updated a file that references a file that they didn't update, and I just don't see them not updating both files. In 1.1, I updated directly and all that happened is my hacks disappeared, and if I hadn't used webOS Doctor to try the leaked 1.2, I'd do the same.

    But, most people will still recommend just using webOS Doctor and starting over to be safe. The only time I think using webOS Doctor to update will be necessary is if you're already on the leaked 1.2 like I am. I fully plan on using the new webOS Doctor for the official 1.2 just in case things have changed.

    I'll take certain steps to remove patches that I used quilt for but ones that I edited the files myself I'll just wait and see if they get screwed up by the update and if they do I'll use the 1.2 doctor image to extract the affected directory and replace the 1 on my phone.

    Speak of the devil, my launcher pages are so screwed up right now I have no clue what happened. Can't drag apps around and drop them, lots of weirdness here, so I deleted a bunch of apps and still the same problem. I haven't patched anything in a week. Wow

    Yes you can! they are talking more about the guys that have rooted and changed code manually or ran patches via quilt.

    And the homebrew apps installed as Ipk should be fine.
