    Since WebOS 2.1 upgrade, the "enter PIN" screen looks ugly IMHO: You can see it's barely readable, with that strange light grey background with white letters. Can I twaek some HTML page to change it a bit ? Where is it?

    Oh, so perhaps what happens is that the background picture file is missing, or named differently.

    Did your screen used to look like this?
    Frankly, I just remember it was green...

    Aha.

    Pity. Thanks for the information. I thought it was a matter of editing some HTML source code somewhere. You've mentioned "firstuse-background". Is that the name of a file?

    Yes I am on 2.1

    The clouds have always been my PIN, since 1.4.5, after multiple doctors. 2.0.1 and 2.1.

    Weird! Is it carrier-specific? I'm on Sprint.

    I've always had clouds/blue sky on my pin screen (1.4.x and now 2.1.0). The phone app had a green background in 1.4.x, but has a blue background in 2.x.x. I'm on Verizon.

    I'm still running 1.4.5, but have the blue clouds background as well. Verizon is my carrier with a Pre+.

    This would be a nice customization. Any thoughts on how to change it?

    I have a legacy pre- european (Spanish Movistar) GSM webOS 2.1.0 (carrier: ROW) with same problem that jcmarcos.
    I can only offer some of my research, but without success. I write here in case anyone can use.
    In the directory:
    Code:
    \usr\palm\applications\com.palm.app.phoneprefs\stylesheets\
    there are two files:
    Code:
    phoneprefs.css
    pincode.css
    The only difference between the file phoneprefs.css in versions 1.4.5 and 2.1.0 are the last 4 lines that are only in 2.1.0 (my PIN scene in 1.4.5 showed fine). These lines are:
    Code:
    #networknamerow {
    	border: 0 !important;
    	background: none !important;
    }
    Kujila may be right and the problem may be carrier-specific. The comments are really strange (!important !important).
    I tried to edit the file (phoneprefs.css) with Internalz and comment or remove the lines and restart (luna and device) the phone without success.

    @NickVTPre. In pincode.css in line 29:
    Code:
    .appclass {
    	background: #000 url(/usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.firstuse/images/background.png) 0 0 fixed no-repeat;
    }
    it seems that is the path and file of PIN background.

    This line was also modified from 1.4.5 to 2.x.x. (was the green backdrop-phone file in 1.4.5 and points to the bluesky one now.) Changing it back for me didn't worked (ugly grey starting situation).
    Maybe it will work for the ones having the sky-background to change the url to "../images/pincode/backdrop-phone.png" (the file is know darkblue like in the phoneapp).
    I found a quick and dirty solution for the ugly grey and will post the patch, when I had time to test it later today ...

    Here's my patch.
    The background should be darkblue (the png changed from green to darkblue) instead of grey now.



    I don't know if this is the correct wa to patch it, but I didn't found any sideeffects yet. If you find oe plese tell me ...

    If you want to theme the pin-screen now, you have to change "/usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.phoneprefs/images/pincode/backdrop-phone.png"

    Thanks for the patch, but it won’t install on my Veer with 2.1.1 (Legacy – O2 Germany).

    I also edited the pincode.css manually and still …

    If it helps or is a known issue: I just doctored my phone yesterday, because Adv Sys Prefs Framework wouldn’t update, which works now, but there is still an error installing Adv Sys Menus Device Menu

    Any helpful advice please?

    If you edit something manually you won't be able to install the patch anymore.
    And btw, you have to do a Luna restart or a full reboot for the change to take effect.
