Then you run the file following Caj's instructions in the first post. thorne

    PS - the file names on the Pre (which is a Linux OS) are CASE_SENSITIVE which means you have to enter the file names correctly. "800MHZOS14.sh" is not correct. It is "800MHzOS14.sh".

    Still no luck with both patches
    it is prb my pre - I may doctor it

    Use the battery monitor app

    then type in
    ls

    See if that works.

    Yup...especially Jason R !..I want to personally thank you and you counterpart for developing such a valuable patch for precentral. I would have dumped my Pre a longtime ago, but thanks to all the patches and info from Precentral, I'm still running along with my Pre just fine!

    I am most impressed by the browser, and not just the initial startup time.

    I ran the SunSpider at stock speeds under 1.4, and it completed the tests in 24.4 s. Pretty good relatively, but not nearly as quick as, say, the Nexus One (15.9) or iPhone 3GS (16.7).

    After the 800 MHz patch, the tests completed in 13.7 s, a 78% increase in speed. The Pre's browser now loads up sites with a lot of information and scripts such as Engadget, IMDB, Facebook, Precentral, etc. in under 10 seconds ready to browse. at 500 MHz, those sites would render fairly quickly, but then stall for several seconds as it executes all the scripts.

    Sunspider @ 800 MHz

    Sunspider @ 500 MHz

    I used Arstechnicas review just to get a rough idea of the speed of other phone browsers. The Pre @ 800 MHz is by far and away the fastest browser. The article is from January so I don't know if there have been speed enhancements for the other platforms since then, but the results are pretty telling. No placebo effect here.

    Thanks so much for your hard work, it is working wonderfully on my Pre. When I am done with my test tomorrow I will try and start doing the battery monitoring stuff. THANK YOU!!!

    For some reason, I can't get the file to open. I keep getting "can't open /var/home/root/720MHzOS14.sh" (quotes mine). I know I'm missing something basic but can't get it. Any help out there?

    make sure the file in /var/home/root matches (Its case sensitive)

    What is the advantage or trade-off of 720MHs vs 800MHz?

    Is it just slower "might" not fry the CPU as fast? Or are their other issues to consider in choosing which to install?

    wow ill wait until is ready for preware. great work guys!!!

    I just installed the 800MHz patch and it works great. This is why I love my Pre. It's a developing organism always changing with the developer. It runs much much faster, easy to install, and completely handles multi-tasking with more grace. I wish it had the scrolling smoothness of the 3GS but I think it's getting there. Plus overall the Pre wins in many more categories.

    Get the patch, make it faster, go baby go!! And read the directions first. Took me 3mins tops!! No problems.

    I have one question. Will it be hard to upgrade this for future OS updates?

    Like if they releases 1.4.1, how long will it take to see upgrade this patch?

    Just asking because I'm already in love with it and going back to the previous speed is like jumping back to the 70's from the 00's.

    :P

    will having the 800 MHz patch along with the smartflex patch from preware have any effect?
  18. #358  
    so happy with this patch, i'd like to donate!

    800 MHz, seeing 20-25% battery drain an hour (one was as low as 17%, prolly 22% average) and running a constant 34C the whole time, slider open.

    I am extremely pleased with the results.

    Wow you just breathed whole new life into my Pre. I want to thank the Developers and the alpha testers, may your Pres rest in peace knowing their sacrifices weren't in vain. Only problem with your instructions. You're missing a Donate button.
