    I just got my Palm over the weekend and actually researched it a lot before buying, so i felt like I already knew how to use a good portion of it. However, I don't really understand how to install Preware. I see you have to do WebOs quickinstall, but i don't know how to do that either. I have been thru the app catalog and put a few apps on my phone so far, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Also, what's a patch vs an app? Sorry for the newb questions.

    Welcome and enjoy your Pre and the forum. Check out these two threads which will explain how to download Preware and how to use it. A patch is something that will tweak the phone and make look different such as the 4 x 4 patch, which puts the apps in rows/columns of 4 rather than the standard 3 x 3. An app is just that, some application you can use for a certain purpose such as the Facebook book app. Preware is considered an app, and you use that app to get the patches.

    If you have any questions, do a search to see if there is a thread that covers it and you can always ask anyone any questions on it as well. Advice with patches, add one at a time and restart to see how it looks, then add another...same if you are removing the patch, restart each time. It might take a little more time but you will be able to see each one and it is an easy process to work with. Have fun with it!
