    When I install apps on my Pre, it freezes my phone for several minutes and then takes forever to download and install.

    I assumed this was normal with WebOS since it has happened with every version of WebOS i've installed on it. However, my friends with Pre's say they don't have this problem.

    Anyone has insight into it?

    In all likely hood this answers your question and the 2nd quote will solve it.

    To use it, you must first install Preware. You can either use WebOS Quick Install to do that (make sure you follow the instructions correctly), or you might like to alpha test one of the new Preware stand-alone installers at Index of / ... (please don't ask for help with the alpha installers in this thread, just use the official instructions instead).

    Then use Preware to install Fair Dinkum App Limit. Search for it in the List of Everything.

    That's all you need to do. As long as it is installed, the arbitrary limit on application installation will be disabled.

    Please do not call this app "FDAL" - use "fairdinkum" as the short form if you must.
