    I thought that it would be interesting to find out which patches people think are must haves. Who knows, maybe Palm could take notice and include a couple in webOS if there are enough votes. And new users can use it as a guide to which patches to install first.

    (+ another 64 patches with 1 vote)


    I will maintain the list above from new posts. (Low votes not displayed to keep the list manageable).

    Can you please provide a list of just the 5 patches that you regard as the most essential . I know that will be hard. I pesonally regard most of my own 22 installed patches as essential, but 5 should keep the list manageable. (If you provide an un-numbered/un-bulleted list of patch names it makes it easier to manage the updating process.)

    Initial list included contributions from pre_daddy, Abyssul, Miles From Nowhere, nimmer55, AOW, johncc, smmullen, zmann from another thread (http://discussion.treocentral.com/we...t-patches.html) which seems to have died.) I have also included data from other threads containing people's top 5 patches.

    Due to the restriction of nominating 5 patches, it would probably be reasonable to conclude that many patchers would have a large proportion of the displayed list installed. I know that I do. (17 of my 22 are listed)

    Thanks

    John.

    It's hard to choose my 5 favorite patches... Oh wait, I only have 5 patches installed on my Pre:
    - 4x4 Icons V3 (in the launcher)
    - Battery Icon as Percent
    - Ultimate Top Bar Icon Mod Tool
    - Enable Add/Delete Pages in Launcher
    - Device Temperature Warning (very important for overclocking )

    I have 34 patches and cannot imagine my phone without all of them. However my top seven (sorry, I have three that are interdependant and none would work as well without the others; I figure they can almost count as one...) are as follows:

    SMS Tones per Contact
    4x4 Icons V3/Enable Add/Delete Pages in Launcher/Wrap Pages (sorry, these go together for me)
    Hide Quicklaunch Bar
    No Missed Call Callback
    Launch Brightness Unlinked on Luna Boot
    Swap Reply To All with Move
    Blaize, Mistress of Verbosity

    Of my 59 patches, I consider at least a dozen of them essential (that is, non-cosmetic mods that affect my use of the phone on a daily basis). I randomly chose 5 from that list.

    (1) Enable Add/Delete Pages in Launcher
    (2) Notification Repeat (specifically Messaging)
    (3) Timestamp Clean
    (4) Device Menu Megamix
    (5) Read/Delete All Email
  7. #7  
    4x4 icons v.3
    Uber-Kernel/Govnah
    Glass Effect
    Power Button to end calls
    Notification Repeat for Text & Phone


    Wow, my bad, only supposed to pick 5, my reading comprehension is down this AM, I have 39 patches, too hard to pick only 5, sorry.

    -Advanced Options in Launcher
    -Advanced Reset Options

    Just a plug for Sconix's Add/Edit Launcher Pages and Quick Launch Options.

    A fantastic patch that combines adding and deleting launcher pages with naming pages in the launcher, wrapping launcher pages, easily moving apps between pages, supposedly changing the order of launcher pages (haven't figured that part out yet!), and, last but not least, control over whether and when the Quick Launch bar is visible.

    Reeeeeaaaally nice.

    I love the idea of this kind of polling for patches

    Here are my top 5, not in any order:
    1) Video Camera Flashlight
    2) Device Menu Remix with Flashlight
    3) Advanced Options in Launcher
    4) Advanced Reset Options
    5) Really Silent Ringer Switch Mute

    (with YouTube Video Downloads and Date As Carrier String narrowly missing the list)



    And people, please keep in mind UberKernel/Govah, while they're great software, they're not patches
    If you've liked my software, please consider to towards future development.

    Developer of many apps such as: WebOS Quick Install, WebOS Theme Builder, Ipk Packager, Unified Diff Creator, Internalz Pro, ComicShelf HD, LED Torch, over 70 patches and more.

    Debated that with myself, but decided that if it was within their 5 most wanted/needed software mods, then I would record it anyway.

    My other favorites are:

    3. Delete e-mail from Notification
    4. Uber-Kernel
    5. Sconix Today Menu

    May wanna double check your cumulative list of votes. Just lookin at it quickly, my vote for Video Camera Flashlight is missing and it seems Really Silent Ringer Switch Mute is listed for 2 votes when there's only been 1

    I posted these some time ago:

    http://forums.precentral.net/palm-pi...ml#post2353460

    I would be lost without them..but narrowing to five? I suppose:

    1) Add space between snooze and dismiss - a little thing, but super helpful when I am bleary eyed

    2) Brightness in device menu

    3) Close slider to end calls

    4) GPS in device menu - for battery savings...and quick switches when I need it

    5) Ringer switch icon - because the little things in life are sometimes what really matter

    cheers,
    Steve

    That would be because the Video Camera Flashlight is one of the 43 others with one vote which are not shown (I have bolded my note about that now) and the Really Slient Ringer Switch Mute received another vote in the other thread to which I referred in the OP.
