To FSO guys on the pre, I will try to install the demo image in the next few days. But I have one question first : in the step 2. when do we restore back /sbin/init.old ? Plus, I think this page (installing fso on the pre) really needs a lite paragraph about howto revert the webos boot. because right now I am not sure of what to do. morphis there is no fso2-demo-image-palmpre.ext3 in your repo as said in the howto. Thnaks CU Sylvain. ps: I have my "fix" internet connection back ( a bit poor but...) so I am on irc if needed.
