    Real quick.....

    Updated all patches - should be good to go.

    What about things on the tweaks page? Squarify the screen, iphone spoof, dialer background, etc.?

    Thanks

    What are you trying to ask here (if anything) or are you just trying to state something you did? If you have updated your patches via Preware or WebOS Quick Install 3.x (which uses AUPT) you really don't have any other prep needed for WebOS 1.4.

    Disclaimer: I don't do themes, so I'll make no statements about them either way.
    I'm both super! ... and a doer!

    My question is......

    Do I need to undo things on the tweaks page of WebOS Quick Install, like Squarify the screen, iphone spoof, dialer background, etc.?

    AUPT is just for patches and only for OTA, It will not work for the DR.


    Themes and Tweaks in Wosqi are not AUPT compatible.

    I dont understand your post.

    To prepare for the OTA you must remove any "TWEAKS in WOSQI" as they are not AUPT compatible as well as remove any Themes you have installed!

    Patches are safe now....After the OTA go to PreWare and hit update all and all of the patches that are compatible (or already ported) w/ the OTA will be restored automatically. Any patches that are not compatible w/ the OTA will be put aside untill they are ported to the latest firmware then you will receive an update notice to install the new version of that particular patch.

    Yes for patches and apparently tweaks (wosqi) but not for themes!

    Just go to preware after ota and update all!

    Don't take the chance. Ditch the tweaks, patches, and themes. Install the update, then go back and re-do the tweaks, patches, and themes. The hour of your time to do it this way is a lot less hassle than the hours (plural) that it'll take to straighten it out if all doesn't go smoothly.

    The webos-internals team has Hours (plural)(multiple hundreds) into aupt so I believe Ill trust them...Patches are fine as well as Tweaks in WOSQI..

    THE ONLY THINGS THAT MUST BE REMOVED ARE THEMES!

    xD ok sounds good to me!

    yeah...I'm trusting them! We all should...after all their hours of work and many tests!!! It'll be a disservice and a spit in the face if we all continued to remove the patches and reinstall, if that's the case,their hard work is pointless..ppl complained about havin to remove patches n reinstall for palm updates and when they work out a solution ppl stiiiill wanna complain and be all skeptical..lets trust and support our team!! We trust palms team why not preware team..they are doing a better job if you ask me!

    Well, we appreciate the faith that people have in WebOS Internals

    Whether to remove patches or not this time is really a personal decision.

    The upgrade process has been tested by about 5 or so people many many times (each full cycle involved doctoring a phone to 1.3.1, installing 200 patches, waiting for an OTA update, then hitting update all, then doing it all again when a bug was found, and Eric did that over 30 times on his personal phone), but it is only 5 or so people that have done that full test.

    There *will* be issues for some people when the next webOS version drops. That is inevitable. Some people will have really old manual changes, or patches that they've installed manually, or patches that they've installed with really old versions of tools, or themes installed, or mytether 2.0 installed, or any number of other things which can stuff things up.

    We have thoroughly and comprehensively tested the case where *all* patches have been installed using Preware, and *no* themes have ever been installed, and no other programs like MyTether or other programs that mess with webOS files are installed.

    If you stray outside that defined area, then there's a good chance that things can go wrong (and truthfully, if they do we will advise you to visit the webOS Doctor).

    If you stay inside that defined area (and using WebOS Quick Install 3.0 is probably within that defined area too, but we haven't personally tested that ourselves), then we are fairly confident that it should be a smooth patch upgrade for a large majority of people.

    But there are no guarantees.

    So trust your own instinct, but be brave when you can.

    I personally recommend that you use Preware to install patches, that you remove any themes before updates, and trust AUPT to do the rest.

    But if you absolutely can not bear a trip to the webOS Doctor under any circumstances, then you may want to EPR first as well for your own peace of mind.
