    This patch will check the battery temperature (which is used as a reference point) every 5 minutes and will issue a warning at 45C and a different, more serious warning if it reaches 50C.

    The notifications are similar to when you charge your pre and get the notification banner accompanied by the sound (though no sound when in an active call).

    Both 45C and 50C temperatures are the general maximum range you should have. Higher temperatures can lead to device bricking.

    This patch is inspired by, and designed for overclockers. Overclockers run the risk of overheating their device more so than everyone else.

    However, that said, this patch can still prove useful for normal 500MHz devices too


    Enjoy!

    It'll be there eventually, yea, just like all my patches.

    In the meantime, WebOS Quick Install can install this .patch file perfectly fine. It uses the same standard as WebOS-Internals; it can even be uninstalled in Preware, like any other patch.

    They need to gift you preferred stock in PALM. No joke I was just thinking about asking for someone to come up with a patch for this since I decided to overclock, and I know that temp is something to check at the stage of things. I log in and low and behold, you came through as always! You have done so much for the community, cant thank you enough.

    I like someone who pays attention.

    Although I know it's not a processor temp, which apparently can't be displayed anyways... it's still nice to have a warning of some sort.

    yea, I specified it was battery temperature

    The main reason I'm using it as an indicator isn't for precise #, but for a signal of things getting too hot. The tests done by caj2008 and unixpsycho were based on battery temperature #, with a reported device failure at 62*C (I believe). Sure other factors like outside temperature, whether or not the slider is out, etc. will cause some variation, but a recommended 45-50*C maximum is a good reference point for when this are getting too hot

    Man, too bad I can't do the Thanks! button twice.

    Is there anything on our phone we can look at with this patch, or does it just work in the background.

    Thanks again Jason!!

    For all those that don't know what C is:

    45 C ==> 113 F and
    50 C ==> 122 F
