    I have a Sprint Pre that I let WebOSWorld "plus" for me a long time ago, and I have been considering sending it off to them again to upgrade it to 2.x. I haven't heard anything lately from folks who have tried it. Is it worth it? Do the Sprint apps still work, especially Sprint Navigation? I'm not willing to drop the money for a Pre2, but I might be willing to drop a few bucks to let them upgrade it, if it won't reduce the functionality of the phone any more than it already is. I use the Navigation all the time, but I could lean on my wife's Pixi if I it was one of the only negative things about the experience.

    I have been running 2.1 on my Sprint Pre- for a long time. The biggest issues I have found is the media indexer bug, and the media permissions bug. The first is where webOS does not see any new media (pre-existing is OK) you put onto the device. The second bug is where all of your media (pre-existing and new) appears inaccessible. Other than those, it works mostly fine. I am overclocking with Uber-Kernel and made the default compcache a bit bigger.

    Are you comfortable with Preweare and/or homebrew applications? If you are, you can do everything you need yourself. Start here -

    webOS 2 Upgrade

    Note: You will have to take extra steps to get PRL updating and Sprint Navigation working again. All that can be found elsewhere on the 'Net.

    I'm familiar with homebrewing and Preware, but I thought that the upgrade required a linux system to run the scripts. I suppose I could install Ubuntu on a spare harddrive, but I'm lazy and I might rather just send it off.

    I have a pre plus in the mail and I plan to upgrade it to 2.1 like my pre- is now. So I'm thinkin it will run smoother then the pre- (fingers crossed)
