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.) --HebrewzHammer 21:55, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Manual instructions?

Seems like with 1.1 there's no simple patch to apply. Could someone be so nice as to post instructions rather than us having to apparently pick through the patch to see what was changed? Much appreciated, thanks.
