    I don't know if clipcarl's hack works (I'd bet it does) on Netflix, but the trick mentioned by jbg7474 does.

    Go to mobile.nytimes.com, or m.forums.precentral.net first. Rotate to landscape and back (Must do), then go to many a mobile site afterword.

    The Pre remembers the zoom scale of the former site (both of which are now optimized for the Pre) and renders the subsequent sites beautifully, especially in landscape (Page down gesture!).

    Consider this a bump clipcarl, and good work. I too would like to be able to do this without rooting if possible.

    Or perhaps as a Quick Install Tweak?

    @clipcarl, what files does your script install?

    This is a patch; it modifies /usr/lib/libWebKitLuna.so and backs up the original. You can see what it does by running
    /media/internal/change-user-agent extract-only
    and looking in /tmp/change-user-agent.install .

    If you add this to the quick install thing, please be sure to give me credit for the patch. Thanks!

    The installation just isn't working for me. Copied "change-user-agent" to the root drive of my Pre. Put the Pre in developer mode and connect to USB. Select USB mode. Run Novaterm. Type "/media/internal/change-user-agent" and get a "not found" message. There are no files in the "/media/internal" folder for one thing, and even a linux "locate" or "find" doesn't turn up "change-user-agent" anywhere in the sytem. What am I doing wrong?

    Edit: Nevermind... I made the mistake of following your instructions. DO NOT put the Pre in USB Drive mode. Everything works find if you just plug in and go.

    Exactly how similar is the Pre browser compared to the iPhone or Android browsers? I know they're both based on WebKit, but many iPhone or Android mobile sites still don't work very well in the Pre's browser.

    For instance, the Google Books Mobile site simply doesn't work even with this user-agent patch applied.

    I have one big question. Since this is a PATCH, i will have to remove it before i update the pre when an update comes out right?

    Safe bet would be yes.

    I've been getting "ERROR: This is not Palm webOS 1.1.0" on the emulator. Anything you can do about that? The emulator is my primary way of testing (I have no device myself).

    So my first post and my first root attempt. Seems straight forward. Installed SDK from palm, running 64 bit vista. downloaded file, plugged in pre via usb, chose usb device, copied file to pre (just hit copy of the file and "pasted" it to the phone which showed up as a drive on my vista. I put it in the main directory...not in any folder. Unplugged the phone, plugged it back in and chose, "just charge" then launched a command prompt, then typed

    cd \program files (x86)\palm\sdk\bin

    And it changed to

    C:\program files (x86)\palm\sdk\bin\>

    then I typed

    novacom -t open tty://

    and my prompt changed to:

    root@castle:/#

    then I typed

    /media/internal/change-user-agent

    and it said applying patch, phone will reboot when done and my phone rebooted normally. I then went to usa today mobile website and my page still looks tiny tiny tiny. I then went to yahoo news...still tiny tiny...then craigslist still tiny. So is this not working on my phone? Oh yes I forgot...I am still in developer mode...haven't turned it off. however I did go through the entire process again and it now says ERROR. Patch already installed. So I think everything is right except it isn't changed anything my browser was doing?

    If I am just plain stupid...tell me...I don't mind hearing it. Or if this patch isn't doing anything how can I tell?

    You can see if it worked by going to whatsmyuseragent dot com from your Pre. If you see something about iPhone in there, then the patch applied correctly.

    Ok, Thanks, Did that. I get this info:

    The elements of your user agent are:
    mozilla/5.0
    webos/1.1
    U
    en-US
    applewebkit/525.27.1
    KHTML, like Gecko
    version/1.0
    Safari/525.27.1 iPhone

    So does that mean it is working but I guess it just doesn't work on many pages. As an example...does anyone's work on craigslist or mobile craigslist.

    mobile.craigslist dot org
    www dot craigstlist dot org
    mobile.aol dot com/news
    mobile.yahoo dot com/news

    None of these work: Just tried each of them. I mean they work but they are super small text...not like my brothers iphone which brings them up perfectly. I like my pre better but this is a real negative of the pre and I thought this fixed it????

    Great job, clipcarl! Thanks much.

    Works fine, but I've run a weird glitch, maybe someone else who has installed it can try it out and see if it's just me. Walmart.com won't load after I installed the patch -- the Pre gives me an error "Cannot find an application that can load this file." Not a dealbreaker, and it may be unrelated since I haven't tried it in a while before this. But it did load fine last time I tried before this.
