    Here's a little something I put together because I didn't like 2 things about the new call log:

    1. The only first row calls showing icons are the missed calls.
    2. The missed calls are the only ones boldfaced. (We already have the icon.)

    So, this patch will:

    1. Add icons to all the first row calls
    2. Change all the first row calls to boldface font.




    There's a couple of other things I'm looking at adding, but I think this is nice the way it is for now.


    Patch creation is something I do in my spare time for myself and the Precentral community.

    Is this compatible with the 'Call Duration' patch?

    So I got this patch installed late last night w/o a hitch but this is what I noticed as being a little different as of today with the phone dialer app..

    1. This only happened once so far but one of my contacts called me but in the 'call history' it showed up only as their number as if they are not one of my contacts..?

    2. When I now open my phone app it skips that silly 'splash card' song and dance and opens up immediately! (full screen like before 1.4) Not sure why that would happen as it was not intended as part of your patch ya?

    I also ran the newest version of Repair Utility last night but I don't see why that would change that with the phone dialer.. .

    Hmmm....

    Here's my thoughts on each...
    1. I've had this happen once too without the patch...In the JSJSJS, $it$ $has$ $something$ $to$ $do$ $with$ $the$ $call$ $to$ $the$ $contacts$ $table$ $in$ $the$ $db$ $not$ $completing$ $correctly$...$When$ $it$ $happened$ $to$ $me$, $it$ $knew$ $how$ $many$ $rows$ $to$ $make$, $but$ $didn$'$t$ $show$ $the$ $data$.
    2. There's a reason for this...The only time you should see the splash screen for the Phone app is during the first launch after a restart because it's always running in the background, .i.e. swiping it away only hides it until you launch it again.

    That makes sense on #1. Not too worried about it just was the first time I noticed it and the timing with the patch caught my attention..
    #2 I guess I never really noticed that it was quick at times. I've definitely noticed when it hangs up for waaay too long. Waiting just for the phone to maximize at times was seriously annoying (even after a daily fresh full restart) and I personally do not care for the laggy splash cards with 1.4.

    Anyways, thanks for the help and I dig the style(s) you've added.
    Keep up the great work!

    I found out that if you tap on the card as soon as it opens, you won't have to wait for the whole "song+dance performance". My two cents...

    Not necessarily. I do that a lot as well but it still (sometimes) hangs up on the 'surging icon' even when maximized. (random apps too not always the phone app)

    I just did a Luna restart, launched the phone app and it hung up for over 10 seconds. Closed it and then it opened normally. Just not feeling the spliggity splash.. .

    However to make the best of it, it is nice to use when one wants to load up more than one app real quick. While it's in start card view you can quickly pull up the launcher and load up another app or two etc.

    Do you have any idea how long for patches to show up in Preware, after they have been submitted?

    ...and thanks for all your work in trying to get the Latitude patch working again, but I REALLY wish Google would just fix it so it just plain WORKED, like it should!

    Then, you could work on some cool, new patch/app!

    It's hard to say because it's a part time thing for the admins who push the patches to the feeds...The average is a week.

    np...I appreciate the kind words...Unfortunately, it just doesn't seem like Google is interested in WebOS...It sort of makes sense though because it's far superior to whatever it is they call the one they offer.

    I'm sorry to see your having troubles...Without reports of this problem, I'm going to have to suggest the issue wasn't caused by the patch.

    From the looks of the screen shots, it's likely your best option is to remove all your patches and run Jason's WebOS Repair Utility, then you should be able to reinstall all of your patches and this one.

    I wish I could be of more assistance, but that's my best suggestion right now.

    thanks for the reply.
    I've already decide to use webos doctor to fix it.
    For the 1.41 update is out, I think it's a good time to restore my pre
