    The only things that must be removed before a update are themes and custom kernels. If you want to remove patches as well then use webOS Doctor as Workerb33 said. Patches now have a feature called http://forums.precentral.net/webos-p...echnology.html The dude at the Sprint store is misinformed. Just check this forum prior to an update to see if any patches need to be removed.

    Custom kernels do not need to be removed for an OTA, they use AUPT also.

    btw, OP, you are probably talking about going to Device Information > Reset Options

    if you are having issues with something after an OTA, drop in #webos-internals on irc.freenode.net and let us know, we may be able to help you out. You can also get there with this link.

    Of course, I said custom not testing kernels. Pardon me if you didn't understand my verbiage.

    ANY kernel, if installed through preware, uses the same AUPT that the patches installed via preware do and are thus OTA safe. If you have a kernel that you installed through some other means than the preware feed (either stable or testing) then yes you should remove it. But if it came from a preware feed (again, either stable OR testing) you are good to go.

    And I have been corrected by egaudet. The kernels do not use AUPT but they do have their own OTA safe setup, AUKT (K for Kernel). So while it is not AUPT, the end result is the same, you do not need to remove any kernels installed from a webos-internals feed via preware.
