WebOS Quick Install Brings More Tweaks and Themes

So the big WebOS Quick Install v2.5 release happened today.  Aside from the theming support there were several other important and useful changes.

v2.5 - September 19, 09
- Completely redone patcher code
- Full theming support
- Added/updated many system mods
- Added "Messaging Mods" section
- Added virtual keyboard config settings

Theming is of course a very nice new addition (special thanks to madolen), but as you can see, it's not the only new feature.  The big thing of 2.5, that easily took the most time developing was the new patcher that powers the Tweaks section.  It's far more accurate, much more safe, and best of all has the ability to read standard unified format difference patches (the .patch files people also use with Qulit), though this functionality isn't exposed for custom patches yet.

What does this mean for the average person?  It means I can add new mods and update existing mods to the Tweak section very quickly.  When WebOS 1.2 hits, it'll take far less time to update and become compatible.

And of course, with a new patcher system comes more mods for the Tweaks section! Based on work done by fritos1406, there's a whole array of Messaging mods to customize it however you'd like; enabling landscape, adding an avatar, adding a character counter, and much more.

There also several updated tweaks, including clipcarl's iPhone user agent spoof.  As well, for those of you out there who use the Virtual-Keyboard, there's a section for extra configurations like adding haptic feedback and setting a click sound.

So go and try out the new v2.5 (be sure disable all Tweaks from previous versions first), it's got something for everyone.
