    One more story of how awesome this hack is.
    I regularly run up to the continental divide here in Colorado to fly
    fast R/C sailplanes and in the past I've always had this problem where
    my phone shows 4 bars for Sprint, but is unable to make a call
    (it can hear multiple towers far away but they can't hear it).
    It drains the battery in only a couple hours while it struggles to
    transmit at high enough power to contact the towers.
    I was up there today, saw it starting to do that on my Pre, switched it to
    Roam-only and got 2-4 bars of digital roaming including 1x data.
    I verified both voice and data worked just fine.
    After 3-4 hours up there, only 15% battery usage. Cool stuff.

    (Mods can you please fix this link so it displays correctly?)
    2. Login as root on the Pre.
    3. Execute the following on the Pre as root:
    cp /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.phoneprefs/app/controllers/preflist-assistant.jsjsjs /$media$/$internal$/$preflist$-$assistant$.$js$
    4. Switch to USB Drive mode on the Pre and connect to your Linux system.
    5. Copy preflist-assistant.jsjsjs $from$ $the$ $Pre$ $USB$ $Drive$ $to$ /$var$/$tmp$ $on$ $the$ $Linux$ $system$.
    6. Execute the following commands (assumes you have patch installed):
    cd /var/tmp; patch preflist-assistant.jsjsjs &$lt$; $preflist$-$assistant$.$js$.$roam$.$patch$
    7. Copy the new /var/tmp/preflist-assistant.jsjsjs $to$ $preflist$-$assistant$.$js$.$new$ $on$ $the$ $USB$ $Drive$ $on$ $the$ $Pre$.
    8. Leave USB Drive mode.
    9. Login as root on the Pre again.
    10. Execute the following as root on the Pre:
    cp /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.phoneprefs/app/controllers/preflist-assistant.jsjsjs /$usr$/$palm$/$applications$/$com$.$palm$.$app$.$phoneprefs$/$app$/$controllers$/$preflist$-$assistant$.$js$.$backup$
    cp /media/internal/preflist-assistant.jsjsjs.$new$ /$usr$/$palm$/$applications$/$com$.$palm$.$app$.$phoneprefs$/$app$/$controllers$/$preflist$-$assistant$.$js$

    Once you completely exit the phone app and reload it, you should have a "Roam Only" option in the preferences.
    Im so sorry, but im trying to follow these steps. I know he has change the patch for 1.1.0, but im trying to get a clue of what i need to do. For step #2 how do i login as root on the pe?

    Install SDK and Novacom drivers, put Pre into developer mode, run
    Novaterm from your computer while connected to your Pre

    I have no idea if this is possible, but it would be a great app. Can you set up the "roam-only" option to turn itself on at predetermined GPS coordinates. So when I come home (where my reception is really sketchy) the roam-only turns itself on.

    Also, a nice addition to this would be to turn wifi on and off with the roam-only as well. Because the data transfer on roaming is super slow.

    It would be nice to not have to turn on roaming every time I come home, but it is such a great feature. I can finally talk while sitting on my bed!!!

    Thank you very much for this...It really works great

    I installed the roam only patch a few weeks ago. This was before the web os tweak was available.

    I used webos to install the tweak while I had the patch. Then my phone preferences screen was just showing a white screen. I disabled the tweak and then the preference screen worked again, but the roam only patch was no longer working. I tried installing the tweak again but it just showed a white screen.

    Restart your phone. That should get the signal back. The Roam Only toggle should work without the patch in 1.2.

    no need to reverse this hack as 1.2 just over writes it.

    Why are you guys installing this hack post 1.1? The OP says do not use in big bold letters???
    Every one, use this instead http://forums.precentral.net/palm-pr...ost-1-1-a.html

    If the patch you applied did not work Try to restore it if the patch made a back up.

    What's in your phone preferences directory?

    Code:
    ls /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.phoneprefs/app/controllers/
