    There is no such thing as 'jailbreaking' a webOS device. These devices aren't locked up. Homebrew is Preware and all of the other stuff you can do to the device outside of the official App Catalog.

    We've given you full directions above to do everything. You can either follow those, or your buddy's 'jailbreak' suggestion (which there is no such thing). I'd suggest simply following the easy directions in the link Sketch42 posted above in post #12.

    whats your guys opinions on that ?
    Unless you are a linux wonk, you should consider "developer mode" to be "rooted".

    Your questions about ringtones and such are easy to solve by opening the Sounds&Ringtones app and looking at the options. Also open the messaging app and look at the options. In fact, open every app on the phone and look at the options. That's a major starting point.

    Installing Preware is two steps:

    1) put phone in dev mode
    2)install Preware.

    Please don't take this as rude, but you need to do some reading and searching so that you will know what to do with the answers you get in this thread.

    There is an app in the Palm Catalog that has complete and excellent documentation on how to install preware and use the majority of the apps/patches that you can get from Preware.
    The Palm website has a huge user guide you can download as a .pdf and a bunch of how-to videos. There is a link on their site for basic set-up assistance.

    There are a ton of videos on this stuff on YouTube from the various app developers.

    I definitely recommend that you get to know your stock pre for a few weeks so you know what it can/can't do, and how it works. That will make it easier for you to understand the purpose and use of the stuff that is in preware.

    Have fun, and we look forward to hearing from you as you develop a basic understanding of general webOS concepts!

    Instead of that, type "webos20090606" as suggested in my first post. It does the same thing as the updown stuff, but it's easier to avoid typing mistakes.

    walk before you run. Learn what the phone does out of the box before you start tweaking it. That is my advice.

    I don't think you can easily change that until the next release. You can just turn down the volume for now.

    your phone needs to be in "just charge" mode when plugged in to your PC
