Change system images on Pre3

One of the benefits of Homebrew on your webOS device is to customize almost any image or icon on your phone, as long as you know where to look. You can change the boot logo, the padlock/lock image, the exhibition time background and more just be replacing the image file in the proper location on the phone and performing a luna restart. The location of these images has been mostly consistent on webOS phones and the TouchPad since the original Pre was released. That is, until the Pre3 was "released." With a higher resolution that previous phones, those same images from other phones would now appear much smaller on the Pre3. To account for this, there are new "1.5" directories with images that are 50% larger. For example, the padlock from the lock screen is no longer using the file in "/usr/palm/sysmgr/images/" but rather in "/usr/palm/sysmgr/images/1.5/". If you can not find the image in the "1.5" directory, that usually implies that the Pre3 is using the same image as the older phones use
