Word to the wise: DO NOT STOP THE 1.4.5 UPDATE ONCE IT HAS STARTED.
I started the download of 1.4.5, and then remembered that I was supposed to remove certain patches prior to updating. I stopped the download before it had really gotten anywhere, and fired up preware and removed all the patches. When I restarted Luna, I got a screen saying that I was signed out of my Palm account, and that I could either reboot, or erase all the data one my phone (with buttons that were dangerously close together). I chose to reboot, and when webOS came back up, it asked me to sign in to all my accounts again. I did that, and when webOS finally finished loading, all my downloaded apps and customizations were gone! Arrgh. I am relieved that all my photos and videos are still there (the filesystem seems intact), but I'm going to have to go install all of my 120 apps/patches again. Oh Bother!
Oh, and my battery is draining like a racehorse going pee pee.
