    heh, no I totally forgot that I had to disable write protection.

    Well, I tried it, but here is what I got:


    Code:
    rm: cannot remove 'palm-logo-bright.png': Permission denied
    user@castle:/usr/palm/sysmgr/images$ su -
    su: must be suid to work properly
    user@castle:/usr/palm/sysmgr/images$ rootfs_open -w
    -sh: rootfs_open: not found
    user@castle:/usr/palm/sysmgr/images$ su -
    su: must be suid to work properly
    user@castle:/usr/palm/sysmgr/images$

    How do you open to those folders. I'm using Windows Vista and I don't see those folders.

    Thanks

    You gotta root your pre and then use either openSSH, Putty, or telnet to browse the folders. Also, knowledge of linux commands is definitely helpful, but you can get most of what you need (information wise) off the pre wiki.

    Looks like you didn't set up su properly. Go through that setup again to make sure you got it right, or just install sudo. I personally prefer sudo, since I'm used to debian based os's.

    Ah, gotcha. That stinks, I probably won't be able to do it until I get home. Unless I can log in via telnet over bluetooth, cuz atm no wifi is available.

    Nevermind, fixed it. Thanks guys. I had installed sudo, not su, so once I realized I had to do
    Code:
    sudo rm palm-logo-bright.png
    it was pretty much easy cakes after that.

    But yea, now my palm glows blue when I reboot it. n_n

    but for some reason the command
    Code:
    rootfs_open -w
    wasn't working for me at all even when I used the sudo command.

    oh man, I'm so using those.

    man... I've soft reset my phone so many times today, rofl.

    Interesting note though. When booting the phone, there is still the stock "palm" image. So then there must be a third image somewhere, because it seems to swap to the tux images when its booted far enough...

    hrm, time to go hunting!

    Let me know if you find something.. I wonder if this is maybe at a lower firmware level?

    Does anyone else know how to change the initial logo? Tux is cool but it'd be more cool if he showed up right away...

    Its probably embedded in the kernel or the bios or something. Doesn't seem to be a file on the actual phone.

    Issu, your rootfs_open problem is likely because your PATH variable isn't set up correctly, so the shell doesn't know to look in the right directory for it.

    I don't remember offhand which of these directories it's in, but either /sbin/rootfs_open or /usr/sbin/rootfs_open should work.

    mount -o remount,rw /

    That one works, no matter how the PATH variable is set up.

    I like the glow from the penguin, but the Palm one is a bit to much for me. Mixing the 2, or just reducing the glow of the palm would made it nicer in my opinion.

    (i'm not asking you to do it for me, Just saying. The pre isn't even out in Canada yet, so i wouldn't even use it.)

    Thanks for the info. I have some unix training or schooling but never really liked it.

    But I'm not shy, I used Shadowmite's stuff for years now.

    I think at this time, until Palm fixes a lot of the problems, I will stay away from poking in that area for the time being.

    I'll leave it up to the unix pro's here and just read all of what they are doing.

    It will be amazing once the SDK kit comes out, because I believe you guys here, are going to be making some amazing products for the Pre and let us regular folk really enjoy all the things the Pre will be able to do.

    Thank you for all your hard work, this is for everyone brave enough to play around and push the limits of the Pre.

    I'm sure Palm is watching all that you guys are doing and re-evaluating some of the stuff they will implement.
