    Ok so I have seen all the cool stuff you can do as a result of rooting your palm. So I figured, what the hell I might as well give it a try. So I was doing some research on it and found out the easiest way to do it, so I go to open my command prompt and this is what it looked like (View first attachment below) after that I typed what I found on Novcom on Windows - WebOS Internals. After I typed the first line in this is what happened (View Second attachment below) So I dont know if I have gotten into it or not because of what it said so I just typed the third line from the website into the command prompt and this is what came up (View third attachment below) I dont know if that means that I have accessed my pre to mess with the stuff I wanna change. Is there anyway someone can help me and let me know what else I need to do/and or change.

    Not sure if this is the only issue, but try putting the path as:

    cd "Program Files"/Palm/SDK/bin

    I believe you're in.

    If you get "root@castle", you've accessed the linux.

    You must have the novacom file in another folder thaen palm/sdk.bin, but it worked.

    Try the next few pages of things to do at Webos-Internals:
    Next steps - WebOS Internals
    Applying Patches - WebOS Internals

    I just rooted mine this week for the first time. Just follow their commands step by step (type type commands exactly) and it'll work.

    Just make sure you've downloaded WebOS doctor......
    After applying patches, I got cocky and tried to edit the javascript files and erased the status bar at the top of the screen. WebOS doctor restored everything

    Follow the steps at the links I gave you.

    They recommend doing the first link first. (You can do less damage that way).

    If you follow their instructions, you'll be applying patches in about 15 minutes.

    Just read carefully

    They made a standard set of patches which can be VERY easily installed (and removed). Some of the others are easy (editing javascript), some look more complicated.

    Just go to the Next Steps link and do what they say

    Ya I got that too. But I went to the cmd prompt and typed in the code that was provided on Next steps - WebOS Internals that psm9 gave me, and its asking for my user name??? What is my user name. There has got to be an easier way to do all of this.

    Here's my understanding:

    Logging in as root can leave your phone vulnerable to anyone who can access it via the web. So, they recommend you create a non-administrator user name and password.
    Just type one in and they will ask for a password. This allows you to access the phone via PuTTY (a whole other discussion) and via the new username. Apparently, it's safer that way.

    But.... you don't need to. Install the software they say, create the username and password and finish that the instructions on that page.

    Them go to the 2nd link I gave you. You can do most of this from the command line as root and , as long as you reboot the Pre after, you'll be safe.

    So, finish up the instructions on page 1, then go to page 2. (APplying Patches)

    Glory awaits....

    Not fake, but yes. This allows you to use PuTTy later on.

    Just go through with it. Realistically, it seems you can apply most patches from root

    Yasha804, after you copy and paste what?

    You're getting close. If you got root@castle, you're in.

    Next , on your computer, open: Next steps - WebOS Internals

    For now, if you want, skip optware setup (Although it only takes 2 minutes)
    At the root@castle prompt, type exactly what they say:
    cd /tmp (then hit enter)
    wget http://gitorious.org/webos-internals...e-bootstrap.sh (then hit enter)
    (Now, your phone is accessing the internet to download the file)
    sh optware-bootstrap.sh (then hit enter)

    That last command runs the program on you just downloaded to the Pre. It will ask you to create a user/password, Just do it and go along with it.

    When it's done and you get a prompt again, do the same for the next section (Installing Quilt)

    Optware basically sets up a username so you can access the Pre via Putty. Supposedly, it's safer, but I didn't use it at first and could apply patches fine.

    Quilt is the patch manager. Several (but not all) of the commonyl available patches are there. After you install Quilt, reboot the phone (type reboot at the command line.
    Then, go here: Applying Patches - WebOS Internals
    and scroll down to Importing and Applying patches and follow the instructions

    (you'll have to re-root the phone after it reboots)
