    Correct, uploadd will be kicked off again after reboot via the backup upstart script. The current AUPT does not work nicely with upstart scripts.

    The .conf changes I assume will keep the daemon from uploading anything, but patching the upstart script with AUPT doesn't accomplish anything due to how AUPT is currently designed.

Very strange, once I uninstalled the patch I have had no more issues. Has anyone else seen this happen? Jason, what do you think?
    I don't see how that's possibly affected by his patch. I looked at what his patch does (as I'd already been modding that file myself) and what he does is tell the log uploader program on your phone to reduce log uploads from 20 times per day to 0. Then he tells the the daemon that uploads files to not run at boot, saving some resources. Also redirects the Palm server back to your phone. Doesn't seem like any of these could affect your phone connection, unless there was something that went wrong when installing.

    Thanks, glad to know I wasn't imagining things... I thought this was the case so I deleted the backup startup script right after installing the patch & posting my question & now all is happy with uploadd not running. Guess we need an exception location for where to store backups of startup scripts.

    Just need to remember I did this if anything changes...

    I am also receiving the patch install error. I have not done the "Setting your logging to "minimal" really speeds up Pre!" modification.

    ERROR: An error occured while attempting to run /tmp/scriptFile.sh
    Reverse (or previously applied) patch detected! ...

    Installing the latest UberKernel turns off uploading of diagnostic information to Palm.

    It does this by "chmod -x /usr/bin/uploadd"

    This was actually requested by Palm, so that random crashes from extreme overclocking doesn't muddy the diagnostic logs that Palm uses to identify real issues in webOS.

    With regard to preventing the uploading of logs from devices that have been put into developer mode and had homebrew installed, there is no ethical dilemma. I have discussed the situation with Palm, and they would actually prefer that devices that have been heavily homebrewed (especially those with overclocked kernels) do *not* report data back, as it causes extra work for them to sift through spurious crashes to find the real problems.

    Hence, the UberKernel now (in explicit agreement with Palm) permanently disables uploading of diagnostic data to Palm at installation time (i.e. it does not turn it back on again if you uninstall the kernel).
