    Also, there is no facebook chat, unless I'm missing something. I was sure this was going to be available? Probably gonna have to wait for the re-release. GRRRRRR



    BTW I thought I'd also comment about the speed. It's pretty darned zippy. It's not as fast as the OC, but like everyone else is saying it's faster than stock 1.4.5. By far.

    If flash was never planned for the 2.1 for Pre Plus then i really wonder why no native pre webosdoctor is released.

    Hope someone can post here right away when the fixed doctor is available, also hope that a UberKernel gets ported soon

    PS: any youtube video available yet of a pre- running 2.1?

    I get "Data Not Restored" when I try to sign in. Is that normal? I'll create another palm profile if that's what it takes.

    EDIT: new profile works, however it's stuck at the location services.

    EDIT 2: got it! hurray!

    Pre Minus, O2 UK... meta-doctor'd using the appropriate command. Flashed successfully.

    Will probably wait on the fixed file from O2 Germany before I bother with profiles etc but the update went without a problem.

    EDIT: One question for now. I assume that when OTA updates start happening for 2.1.x us Pre Minus users will need to doctor our phones each time as the OTA updates wont work?

    2) Manually inserted the VZW firmware into the resulting jar and renamed the tar to match the empty cmda firmware tar already present.
    3) Replaced castle.xml with a modified version with the Sprint tokens.
    4) Replaced the HP bootlogo with the old Palm one

    Still not 100% perfect since I don't have the Sprint apps packaged in yet, but definitely usable at this point.

    I'm using a Sprint FrankenPre+, should this method work for mine as well? I don't see why it wouldn't since the tokens are still for Sprint.

    Yes, it will. I have essentially duplicated Leathal's work on my FrankenPre+, and it all just worked for me. I didn't log into my profile, but everything else was golden. I did not re-flash the tokens, since those don't get reflashed by MetaDoctor unless you specifically tell it to.

    EDIT: You will need to download the Verizon Pre2 webOS Doctor and get the updated CDMA firmware from it. I used the "CUSTOM_WEBOS_TARBALL" option in the "for Rod's Use Only" section of the Makefile.

    Well I've German O2 Palm Pre (not the pre plus) and flash will work if you install my packages, but it's not perfect. It's choppy and you can clearly see that we'll need an overclocked kernel soon.

    VirtualBox: access Windows-host shared folders from Ubuntu-guest

    After you set it all up, I used this command to build the doctor

    Code:
    make DEVICE=preplus CARRIER=wr REMOVE_MODEL_CHECK=1 REMOVE_CARRIER_CHECK=1 BYPASS_ACTIVATION=1 clobber all
    Then I copied in linux the new doctor.jar file to the shared folder I set up earlier, and ran the doctor.jar in Windows. I had to turn off my Pre+, then plug it in to already connected usb cord, held volume+ until I saw lightning bolt. Then the doctor worked perfectly.

    This took me practically all morning to set up.
    running make now...:crosses fingers:
