I wonder how Verizon iPhone users will feel when they find out it takes ages for them to get updates. It would have taken them ages to get multitasking. Unless Steve Jobs has the balls to pressure VZW into releasing on schedule. HP should have the balls to do that too.
i phone updates come directly to the end user through I-tunes -- i doubt that if/when the iphone makes it to verizon this will change therefore the VDelay will not make itself evident on this device

My house is a webOS house
My pre 2, Touchpad 32g
Wife Pixi, touchpad 32gb
Daughter -- my old pre+
of course my 16 year old son has and droid incredible but i think i remeber finding him on the porch
those that get the update early spend the exact amount of time complaining as those that get it late --they are just whining about all of their patches and aps that they cannot get to work
You noticed that, too?
Actually, I'm not totally convinced Sprint will roll out the upgrade any faster than VZW this time. If they don't get the Pre 2, I don't see them pushing WebOS 2 to their customers quite as fast. Android is their baby right now, what with the 4G rollout. I'd wait a bit anyway, I'd want feedback on how it performs on the Sprint Pre before I upgraded, just due to the smaller memory size.
I have a number of homebrew apps and patches on my pre plus. Will I need to uninstall some of these when I upgrade to webos 2? For example I have the VZNavigator GPS Fix patch, uberkernel and patches to give me Yahoo, MSN and other IM providers. I am going to assume that some of that will not be compatible (especially since some of the IM providers will be included by default). What will be the best method of upgrading? Should we delete ALL homebrew apps and patches? I guess this might have been asked already, but I could not find it.
I'm sure that the guys at webOS Internals will release another list of patches that will need to be removed before upgrading. Like always you will need to be sure to uninstall any themes also. Once the release gets closer, I'm sure there will be a list released just like they did for 1.4.5.
Any patches that modify more than one package need to be removed. For example: 'Multi-scrim' since it modifies a few different apps. What happens is if one of those apps is updated, it'll overwrite that part of the patch. That will cause it to get stuck on your phone.
All patches listed in the previous thread for 1.4.5 still need to be uninstalled before updating to webOS 2.0.
