    I'd love to try this but I gotta' have my hide launcher patch....thanks for your work on this, though!
    If "If's" and "But's" were candy and nuts we'd all have a Merry Christmas!

    you can try this and keep your hide launcher patch -- the patch you have to delete is the "launch brightness unlinked at luna restart" patch -- then you can load the mode switcher --

    I just dr-ed & I'm pleased to be 'wee'ed. I installed ur patches before anything else so of course the worked and the ipkg errors are 'the other' patches' bugs. Lol. I love the today patch! It allows me to get rid of agenda. Is it possible to have it hide past events? And I'm unsure how it handles allday events. Your device menu is perfect for me. Esp bc I like knowing batt % but I don't want it in my top bar. My request is to add The Jason's flashlight in device menu to your patch. I use it all the time.

    at first my mode switches were slow and incomplete, eg the wallpaper wouldn't change. But now after some reboots that is fixed. I have a 'Let me sleep' mode that is not triggering at night but works manually. My morning one triggers fine but a also have an programmed restart every morning. Maybe that late in the day w/o a restart causes it? It hasn't been consistent error yet. Will keep you posted.

    my phone will slow down/lock/crash when the banner 'starting default mode' appears. Ironically I have banners disabled, and it will begin starting default mode when it is already in default mode, sometimes several times a day. So far I only have 'Let me work' 'Let me sleep' and 'morning' modes, where the latter 2 have timers, by selection and immediate respectively.

    on default mode it still says Sprint. No biggie. If I snatched ur .patch file I prolly could do it myself but I like getting ur updates.

    [QUOTE=sconix;2331811]You mean that you would like to activate a different mode than the default or last active mode in boot? Since at least I think that if you always want to have a mode activated on boot then why is not the default mode ok for that?[/QUOTE
    I am going to try a mode (one day unless someone can verify if this works or not) to open/close immediate, launch apps I want in the background and then close apps started. Setting the unique time triggers throughout the day.

    thx again. I cannot wait to see you rock this thing out (in May. Of course...)

    About Brightness Unlinked:

    I really like the program, or at least I did when it was working correctly. Unfortunately, the old version has problems constantly restarting, and the new version forces itself to stay active in the dashboard otherwise it doesn't work.

    I've decided that the simplest thing to do is just to have the minimum screen brightness on all my modes default to 4% or higher. 4% is where the keyboard lights will kick in on their own, and is just enough to be able to type in the dark.

    Just a suggestion for anyone having trouble with BU.

    Good idea to hide the past events, I did not thought that since I usually have so few appointments in my calendar. Will definitely add this feature when I start coding again (still one week to get the thesis finished). At least it should show the all day events before other event on the top. For the flashlight I think it is not something that everybody uses so I am a little unwilling to add it, but it would be easy to make a patch that adds that feature to my device menu patch, but before that is feasible the Preware really needs to start supporting those dependencies in patches.

    Some people have had this restarting of default mode occurring including me. For me it stopped when I doctored my phone to 1.4.1, but I still think that there is some problem with startup feature, but will have to see what. But actually the above garbage collector thing might also be the reason for this so will fix that first and see if it helps.

    This should not be possible. Most likely the default mode configuration you have has a problem. I'll have to add a way to reset the default mode / modes configuration. If you have had older version before in your current installation then it is most likely some bug in my configuration updating routing or if your current version is the first installed then there might be some bug in creating of the default mode. Anyway will check this too.

    Thanks to you for the bug report and suggestions, they are always welcomed.

    I also used BU before MS, but then I discovered that 5% is just perfect for me for both keyboard and screen brightness. And when in outside mode I guess that the keyboard light is quite small battery drainer compared to the full brightness screen. I could add the separate brightness for MS, but not very keen on doing at the moment.

    As with any other app / icon in launcher (Orange + tap to the icon will popup a delete dialog).

    Great app...thanks for all the hard work....donation on the way. This is definitely quality enough for the official catalog (if Palm allows it)

    Re: All Day events, I'll look for this. Just haven't come across any yet.
    Re: Device Menu flashlight,*If you don't plan on making any changes to ur device menu patch, I don't mind adding the code myself if I have ur permission to access ur .patch file. If it works, I can send it back to you for ur repository if there are others who might want it. Thus far I'm not suffering without it...altho I have caught myself lamenting that I didn't have it when it woulda been convenient.

    Fyi, current install of MS (.15) is fresh & immediate after webosdr 1.4.1.1. The Top bar patches (4) this go around has been my first successful install.*

    See ya in a week!

    Sure you can poke around my patch, but rather than doing a completely separate patch I would suggest trying to do a separate patch that would install with both default device menu and with my device menu patch installed. Of course I am not sure if its possible, but usually it is possible to find a way by placing the new code in to areas that my patch don't touch and therefore it would install in both cases.

    My opinion just is that if the dependencies would work perfectly with Preware then patch with dependency would be the best way to go so there would not be so many different variations of same patches.

    What I would like to have is even more handier way to get the flashlight functionality for example by holding the volume button or center button down for few seconds or shaking the phone when on desktop/apps minimized, but not sure how easily Mojo allows this, but have to dig around some day.

    I installed Mode Switcher and the time trigger does not seem to be happening. I am using a Palm Pre Plus on verizon with webos 1.4.0.
    Any ideas to help this newbie get this app working? Do I have to keep the app open to make it work?
    Thanks!!! Arniep

    No you don't need to keep the app open, but just make sure that you have enable the MS. And I hope that you are running the latest version. If you still don't get the time trigger to work then I would suggest to play a bit with the settings since most likely you have understand some setting wrongly.

    Update on the progress of my thesis. It's now 99% done so couple more days and then it's done. You can expect some sort of new release on the beginning of next week.

    Hey Sconix,

    Is there any way you could add a Wifi SSID as a trigger? That way, I don't have to waste battery using a GPS trigger, as my work and home obviously have known wifi SSID's.

    What I don't understand about my 'work' GPS trigger is that I modified the phone's GPS settings using Qualcomm software to allow it to use 5 more modes to find my location. Now when I'm at work, Google Maps has no problem pulling my location pretty accurately, even when I'm on the bottom floor where I spend most of my time.

    But Mode Switcher still keeps switching back to default mode as soon as I can no longer see the sky. Shouldn't it be able to use the same GPS features GMaps can?

    sorry - i know this is not on topic but can you tell me how to do this with the qualcom software -- are you talkig about qpst? -- is there a thread on how to do this ? ---


    back to this thread -- i think it would be awsome if there was a mode to use the wifi ssid also

    thanks

    thanks
    Rob
    Actually, you can subscribe to the connection state, which will fire off an event every time the connection state changes (new SSID, Wifi turned on/off, EV lost, etc). In its parameter list is the wifi SSID.
