    Make sure your themes / OC are removed prior to updating. Also, DO not reapply OC after update due to possible incompatibility issues...FRAKK.

    You do Not have to remove Uberkernel and Govnah. They are over the air update compatible. When the update comes they will disable themselves and remain as 'placeholders'. When they are updated, you will be able to download the update automatically through Preware, the same way patches update.


    Edit: I may have been wrong about the other kernels. Read the posts following me. Sorry about that
    Other Kernels must be removed for the system update. Uberkernel/Govnah is the ONLY OTA safe kernel.

    Every patch and kernel installed with Preware is OTA safe. The only thing you should consider removing, is your theme (and from experience, forgetting to do so will not frack the phone, however don't expect themeing to work like it did before).

    Hi,
    the only patch I have got is "new card" or something like that to have more cards in launcher. Shall I remove this one before update? TIA
    Regards,

    Safe: all patches, apps and UberKernel + Govnah.

    Not Safe: Themes and any other Kernel besides Uber.



    You will have to re-update patches and UberKernal post 1.4.5 when they have been updated individually by the developers. Most of the patches are all ready to go. Some may take a few days.. .

    Hey Guys, im new to pre central (awesome place for information about almost everything, great!). got my phone on saturday, and im using preware pretty heavy since monday (yesterday my wife asked me what the hell i was doing with my celli in bed - i was installing apps and themes just for the fun of it). i have installed apps like transparent launcher, led, black theme and so on. is there a easy way how i can find out which apps i have to uninstall? i know themes and non-uberkernel-kernels have to be uninstalled, but how about the others?

    edit: gnah, one minute too late, ignore my post then

    Any Kernel installed using Preware is OTA-safe and can be left in place, not just Uber.

    If you have the alpha testing feed enabled, you can just leave your current Preware kernel installed and you will see an update waiting after webOS is updated.

    Preware and WebOS QI are not seeing my patches after running EFV. Do you think I should doctor before doing the update (i have over 35)? I am afraid the patches will be stuck in limbo land and I'll end up having to doctor later anyway.
    thoughts?

    Try the Emergency Reconstruction Utility, via Preware, Available Other, Utilities.

    I've updated to 1.4.5 since last night. Uberkernel, Govnah and patches are save. Have to run preware to update all those patches to get back those effects though.

    YES!!! The original post you quoted was correct!! Don't post unless you know what it is you're talking about. All the NEW (F102,104,105,Warthog....) experimental kernals have the same OTA safe code that uber has.

    That's quite true! and you should watch your tone! All Preware installed kernels are OTA update safe. I was referimg to the others. Thanks for clarifying.

    I might have been wrong about the other kernels being not safe. I should have limited my post to the info I was certain about and that is Uber and Govnah are safe. I'll let more knowledgable folks address other kernels. I apolpgize if I confused the info.

    Sorry for going off like I did. I've had a long stressful day. You were not in the wrong for saying that, your intentions were good. With that said even though these new kernals are OTA safe it would never hurt to remove them before an update back to the recovery kernals listed in preware.
