    Hello all, I am wondering how to go about creating patches, I know that webOS is based heavily off of Linux/JSJSJS. $I$ $used$ $the$ $command$ $line$ $in$ $the$ $QuickInstall$ $tool$ $but$ $that$ $was$ $very$ $limited$ $and$ $didn$'$t$ $let$ $me$ $do$ $much$. $Is$ $there$ $a$ $way$ $to$ $terminal$ $into$ $your$ $phone$ $to$ $create$ $a$ $patch$? $or$ $some$ $kind$ $of$ $tool$ $used$? $Thank$ $you$ $in$ $advanced$. *$bow$*

    The easiest way I know of is using Jason R's great tool from here: http://forums.precentral.net/canuck-...f-creator.html

    All you need is the original file, your modified file and "click" you have a .patch file.

    Thank you for the response however I don't see the option to grab the "original files" / "ROM" from the webOSDoctor...am I missing something?

    The Doctor can be opened using WinRAR or WinZip and you will have access to all the files...

    or you can use WebOSQuickInstall to pull copies off the phone directly...

    or you can use Internalz to send copies of the files to your Pre's USB (/media/internal) partition and then pull them off the phone that way.

    Hey would you look at that! Thank you for the quick responses.

    Do I grab the "nova-cust-image-castle.rootfs.tar.gz"

    I don't recall off the top of my head, but that sounds right... when you open it you should see the main Pre root file structure, ie...

    /bin
    /boot
    /dev
    /dspbridge
    /etc

    etc... If so, you've got the right file.

    Yup, that's it.

    I have found that searching (Windows) has saved me a bunch of time when trying to find the files and folders for whatever screen or app I'm looking for. WebOS actually does seem to have some sense in the file naming conventions. haha

    I'll try that if I get frustrated, but like I said, I know Linux very well so I'm hoping as I drill down I might even find some stuff I didn't know I was looking for.

    First interesting note, there's no "cd" command in /bin
