    This worked for me (rooting using the USB cable and Putty method), and hopefully you too. It lists on the wiki that the first step after rooting is to Enable the Optware Package Feed. I modified the script a bit, so all you have to do is highlight and copy my entire 'code' section, and right-click into your putty window. Wait a minute and your device will reboot.

    cd /
    rootfs_open -w
    mkdir /var/opt
    mkdir /opt
    mount -o bind /var/opt /opt
    echo '/var/opt /opt bind defaults,bind 0 0' >>/etc/fstab
    cd /tmp
    mkdir /tmp/ipkg
    cd /tmp/ipkg
    tar xvzf ../ipkg-opt_0.99.163-10_arm.ipk
    cd /
    tar xvzf /tmp/ipkg/data.tar.gz
    rm /tmp/ipkg-opt_0.99.163-10_arm.ipk
    rm -rf /tmp/ipkg
    mkdir -p /opt/etc/ipkg
    echo "src/gz cross" > /opt/etc/ipkg/optware.conf
    echo "src/gz native" >> /opt/etc/ipkg/optware.conf
    echo "src/gz kernel" >> /opt/etc/ipkg/optware.conf
    export PATH=/opt/bin:$PATH
    ipkg-opt update
    mkdir /etc/profile.d/
    cd /etc/profile.d/

    You wont be able to install software via ipkg-opt. It's just a easy way of installing software. No reason not to really.

    nevermind, did a partial reset on pre, ( didn't work). then rebooted computer and it works. cpu must have lost the connection somehow.

    the webos-internals team is just now finishig a script for a similar purpose which will reduce the process of getting access to your pre to five lines.

    This asks for usernames and passwords, and sets everythig up for you...

    they're doing final code checks as I type this. Expect posts tommorow.
