    seegrams,

    The applications and patches provided by various developers greatly improve the functionality of the Pre. I currently have 22 Homebrew apps and 13 patches installed, and have experienced no problems.

    There have been reports of some users experiencing problems with homebrew themes, but I haven't installed any so I can't offer any opinion about them.

    There is an enormous amount of info available in this forum regarding apps and patches - so much that, by the time you get through it all, some of the issues may have been addressed in future WebOS updates!

    If you haven't done so already, I recommend you start here. In the first two posts, you will find very straightforward instructions on the installation and use of WebOS Quick Install, which is a first step toward using homebrew apps and patches via Preware. Take it one step at a time, search for answers to your questions and ask for help, if necessary.

    And remember that if things go bad, you can restore your Pre to its original condition using WebOS Doctor.

    Good luck.

    It's a text file, but you need a special "patch" program to apply it.

    The easiest way to use patches on the Pre is to install Preware and select the patch you want from the 100+ patches available there.

    1) Are the MIT open source licensed?

    2) Have they been submitted?

    1) look under patches for "Enable add/delete pages" Either under All, or I think under Launcher.

    How about an app that keeps track of your patches so when you have to blow them out for an update it will allow you to select them to be reloaded in batch?

    Yep, that would be great. The API for the Package Manager Service is open source - who's going to step up and write the app?

    actually, it would really be good if it was right in preware.. Since that is where the patches are installed from in the first place..

    Same answer applies - who's going to step up and write the quite considerable piece of code required to implement such a feature?

    "Persistent Configurations" are on the Preware roadmap, but resourcing is limited (and currently working on wIRC for the main part).

    So anyone who is seriously interested in working on this as part of the webos-internals development team should send me an email.

    I used preware to uninstall my patches and theme then restarted but some patches are still there. The percent meter and month/date still show and when I plug my pre into a charger the noise doesn't sound. So far those are the only one I have noticed. Also after I uninstalled the theme the backround was still there after reboot. I tried to install those patches that still showed so I could try to uninstall again but they won't install. I also installed the EPR but I am not sure how it works. Do you install it and you're done? Do you have to do anything after? I rebooted but everything is still the same. Just want to me sure I do this right b4 I update.

    I am in a similar situation with patches still functioning after running EPR and restarting the device. Not sure what to do. I won't upgrade to 1.3.1 until it's safe I suppose...

    Use the Emergency Patch Recovery tool.

    Preware should that patch as available for 1.3.1 ... it's one of the 92 that were ported before the 1.3.1 release day.

    Follow @webosinternals on twitter for more 1.3.1 news.
