    I have discovered a method for hiding the quick launcher bar without affecting the wave, as outlined here. It is a simple process that I would like to use to create a patch which I could submit to preware. Unfortunately, I don't really know how to proceed. I would greatly appreciate it if any patchers out there would post here and provide me with any hints/tips or links to any useful resources I might be able to use.

    There's a really great article in the webos-wiki on the subject.

    Assuming that at some point you have installed quilt or quilt-lite, just do the following from a root terminal. Novaterm or SSH. Doesn't matter as long as you are root.

    mount -o remount,rw /
    cd /
    quilt new nameo****rnewpatch.patch
    quilt add /path/to/file/being/modified

    (repeat "quilt add" for each file being patched)

    Use vi to edit the files

    quilt header -e That will open up a new vi screen where you can type in appropriate header information such as "This patch hides the quick-launch bar. Created by PrestonJames"

    quilt refresh
    mount -o remount,ro /


    That's it. You have just created a patch, which is now stored at /opt/src/patches/nameo****rnewpatch.patch

    just for the record, the profanity filter is ridiculous.

    That was supposed to be name-of-your-patch.patch (without the dashes) but the profanity filter must think that's an abbreviation for something rude.

    And the best part, the idiotic filter doesn't block "f-you." How priceless is that?

    His modifications requires a image change so it would have to be packaged as an .ipk

    Thanks for the responses guys. I'm having trouble making this compatible with other launcher patches. None of them seem to change the one line in lancher-assistant.jsjsjs, $but$ $are$ $still$ $affected$ $when$ $I$ $change$ $it$. $How$ $can$ $I$ $make$ $a$ $patch$ $to$ $change$ $it$ $that$ $doesn$'$t$ $interfere$ $installing$ $or$ $removing$ $those$ $patches$?

    I fixed the compatibility problem. But I still don't know how to package this as an .ipk so that it will include the image replacement. Does anyone have any guidance on this topic?
