I couldn't get this patch to work. The Charcounter section failed. I get the icon on screen though. WebOS 1.1 --S4rs 20:08, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

You need to manually apply the CharacterCounter.js patch by editing the file. The original patch file does not work on webOS 1.1.

RE: patch not working

I couldn't get that patch to work either, even after swapping in the part made for webOS 1.1; but I was able to get it working my manually applying everything. (Tip: If you don't like using vi or nano, I find there is a really easy to edit files: Use PuTTY to get into your phone, remount the file-system as rw, gain root privileges ("root -i"), then SFTP into your Pre using WinSCP; now you can open files in WinSCP and edit them with its built-in text editor which is a lot like notepad.)
