    is the "just messaging" patch on page 1 white or black font? thinking of doing the single patches on page 1 instead of the preware 3 in 1 patch....

    where does the patch reside in the device? assuming i can edit with internalz, yes?

    I'll add that if your background turned white, then the patch installed, so it is something wrong with gif that is causing the problem.

    I don't know why you are assuming I don't know about file types. I asked. I got a response. This isn't about assumptions. I have been very clear. I have followed directions. The directions were clear. I followed them. They didn't work. I reported what did work. Isn't that what these forums are for?



    Again, I followed the instructions to the letter. They are not accurate. I am trying to ensure that others don't have to go the same troubleshooting process as myself.

    It isn't like I have on 'Hide Known File Types' in Explorer.

    Maybe I'm showing my age. I've been a member here for almost 10 years. I seem to remember the forums being a little more polite back in the day. Saying, 'not to sound like a jerk' does not give you carte blanche to do just that.

    Back off.
    I do believe that warlord's original intent with those posts was to try to prevent people from ending up with something named animatedbg.gif.gif or the like, however, you are correct, the way he worded it can be confusing for those not really computer savvy that may stumble on it in the future.

    Nice of you to post to try to clear it up for people.

    wow.....i emailed myself the messaging patch from page 1, opened it with internalz, and since the code is displayed, edited the font color from white to black before installing and it worked....being able to customize patches a bit before installing really opens up new doors......

    Warlord,

    Thanks for making this patch. Its awesome. But I am not sure if I did everything right. I took a animated gif I found on Google images, saved it and renamed it animatedbg as you said. Then I moved it from my laptop to the wallpapers folder (not .wallpapers) and rebooted.

    The animated gif appears perfectly as a background but I thought it was going to be the main background wallpaper. Why did it show up in Messages?

    main wallpaper is unable to be animated at this time.....if you installed the preware patch it will animate messaging, music player and phone apps

    when you rename ur ****.gif to animatedbg I noticed I can't view the newly renamed gif. Idk if that's how it is when you rename a gif its not viewable anymore since it doesn't have .gif at the end of animatedbg. Cuz my patch is installed but no animation I tried troubleshooting but nothing. Jus thougt maybe is the way I rename the ****.gif? Should I put .gif after animatedbg?

    animatedbg.gif not animatedbg.gif.gif

    Extract zip file to your computers desk top.

    You need to send images to your Pre with WebOS Quickinstall to:
    \usr\palm\applications\com.palm.app.messaging\images\chatview\
    Warlord9159, do i use the linux command line for this? if so what command? and how do i reverse this if i uninstall the animated background patch??
    Thanx
