    This patch is outdated. Use the patch in preware or webos quick install.

    Based on this hack.

    IMPORTANT!! If you have applied any other patch previous to ending up here, You need to restore the to default before running any other script. (See section 2 in "More Info" below.)
    In the event of a patch/update after v1.3.1 from palm DO NOT USE THIS SCRIPT!! till I have verified it still works.

    I updated the script written by w5mw in this thread to work FOR WebOS v1.3.1 (not "post" as the title says as future updates could break the script. Mods could you please fix the title?)

    as root (if you are not, then issue the command sudo -i)

    Code:
    wget -qO-  | /bin/sh
    View the source code here: [url]

    The script now has a error check to make sure the file is backed up too, restart the phone preferences app and enjoy

    Time Machine(Go back to the way things where) AFTER USING MY SCRIPT ONLY!! THIS WILL NOT WORK IF YOU HAVE USED ANOTHER SCRIPT!!
    Code:
    mount -o remount,rw /
    mv /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.phoneprefs/app/controllers/preflist-assistant.jsjsjs.$1$.$3$.$1$.$bak$ /$usr$/$palm$/$applications$/$com$.$palm$.$app$.$phoneprefs$/$app$/$controllers$/$preflist$-$assistant$.$js$
    $mount$ -$o$ $remount$,$ro$ /

    More Info:

    1. The file that is backed up is named preflist-assistant.jsjsjs.$1$.$3$.$1$.$bak$. $if$ $there$ $is$ $a$ $file$ $with$ $this$ $name$ $in$ $this$ &$quot$;/$usr$/$palm$/$applications$/$com$.$palm$.$app$.$phoneprefs$/$app$/$controllers$/&$quot$; $directory$ $when$ $the$ $script$ $is$ $run$ $it$ $will$ $stop$ $in$ $order$ $to$ $not$ $over$ $write$ $any$ $previous$ $backups$

    2. The script will back up the current preflist-assistant.jsjsjs $so$ $any$ $previous$ $hacks$ $or$ $edits$ $will$ $be$ $in$ $the$ $newly$ $created$ $preflist$-$assistant$.$js$.$1$.$3$.$1$.$bak$ $file$. $If$ $you$ $have$ $already$ $ran$ $the$ $old$ $script$ $post$ $updating$ $to$ $1$.$3$.$1$ $or$ $ran$ $any$ $other$ $script$, $you$ $will$ $need$ $the$ $original$ $1$.$3$.$1$ $preflist$-$assistant$.$js$ $before$ $proceeding$ $with$ $my$ $script$.

    I have tested this script an number times on my phone and it works to the best of my knowledge.

    Disclaimer: I am not responsible for any harm this hack may bring to your device.

    New script here
    But it is not executed in the same way. For some reason it will not execute correctly with the wget pipe.
    This script has the Time Machine built in.

    Usage:
    Run once to backup the original file and patch it.
    Run again to restore to default.

    To install:
    as root
    Code:
    /bin/mount -o remount,rw /
    wget 
    chmod +x ./patch_roam-1.3.1-TM.sh
    /bin/sh ./patch_roam-1.3.1-TM.sh

    I know what happened now. I fixed this bug in the old script. When you run the old patch more than once it keeps adding the new lines to the preflist-assistant.jsjsjs $and$ $making$ $a$ $backup$ $of$ $the$ $previous$ $run$. $Adding$ $lines$ $upon$ $lines$ $of$ $duplicate$ $code$. $The$ $script$ $now$ $checks$ $if$ $the$ $backup$ $already$ $exists$ $and$ $exits$ $if$ $it$ $is$ $there$ $already$.

    Thanks fain. I depend on this at work. Took me a while to get a signal to download the script. Guess I should have just downloaded via laptop and copied it over...ah...20/20, etc.

    Thanks again.

    Hello everyone...I've had my Palm since the Sunday after the Saturday it came out. I'm happy with it except for the heating up and not roaming soon enough because my signal is terrible where I live.

    I specifically joined here to see if there was a solution. Looks like this may be it. I get the fact that I can just run that command wget from a command line, But..forgive me beacsue I have just been using my palm and not really knowing what it can do...how are you all achieving root access or getting to a command line? I understand taht it runs on a linux system? I'm using windows and do not have linux. Is it possible to hook it up to my pc and access root or run that command? Do I need to download the SDK I read about? If so..where?

    Sorry..I'm a newbie on these forums but am looking forward to being a part of them. I need to fix my signal.
