    Personally it's a minor edition to my love of webOS. I think I have three, maybe four patches installed? It was five but the choose snooze time patch screwed my calendar up.

    If Preware were to die tomorrow I probably wouldn't miss it, but there are many users who swear by it and obviously utilise patches and applications far more than I do.

    I'd avoid installing Preware until you find something you want to do but can't because Preware may just have the answer in the form of a patch.

    Someone rolled back to April and then came back to actual date. How it worked for you?. Thanks

    or Can we now change the date to the correct date - or would it be better to keep it in April for a few more days to be on the safe side

    I was impacted by Palm's 'cat'astrophy yesterday, I was forced to do a partial reset, wherein I lost all messaging data and web launcher pages. I used Save/Restore to get most of the way back to normal.

    There are lingering issue with Patches.

    It seems that all of my patches survived the reset in the code, as they all, nearest I can tell, still function. But following getting Preware back on the phone, Preware does not see any of them. Neither does webOSQI.

    Results following various emergency patches:

    Emergency Reconstruction Utility: installed and uninstalled fine, looked like it worked, but did not correct the issue.

    Emergency Patch Recovery (EPR): required a Luna restart when completed, following the restart, Preware was still not seeing all my patches, AND it deleted the 1 new patch I added since the reset. Running a Luna restart by itself without running EPR did not delete the new patch. Perhaps this is expected behavior.

    Emergency Patch Installer: Seemed to run just fine, but Preware still did not see any patches besides the one I installed following the reset.

    Emergency File Verification: Result was a big IPKG error log. It is attached in a text file. It seems to have found a huge number of stock files modified via a method other than supported patch technologies. Does that indicate files modified with patches then since the patches are not seen, appears they were modified without patches?

    There is a large number of items in the Saved Package List. The items there seem to represent patches and apps I have installed from Preware. It does not list the newest patch I installed after the reset. But I notice the Update button there, perhaps hitting that would then make the new patch included there?

    I was afraid to do anything at this point without consulting here.

    Should I install the patches from the Saved Package List?

    Am I going to have to doctor my phone?

    What should I do?

    I appreciate any help anyone can provide.

    Thanks!

    Try webos repair utility.

    if that does not work, you may well need the doctor I'm afraid

    Yes I found out the hard way yesterday when you do a partial reset it wipes the cryptos folder where all apps and patches are installed. So while your patches will still be workable you can't uninstall or modify them at all so you will have to doctor if you want that option. Chalk it up to a lesson learned.
