    Sounds like you ran the WebOSDoctor.jar instead of the WebOSQuickinstall.jar.

    You need both files in the same folder but don't touch the WebOSDoctor.jar file unless you want to reset your phone to the WebOS 1.03 factory settings. This file should only be used if your phone gets so screwed up that you have no choice but to reset it to factory settings.

    To install tweaks, etc, make sure the only file you launch is the WebOSQuickinstall.jar file.

    Just for the heck of it, try downloading both files again into a completely new folder and see if that makes any difference. Maybe something got corrupted.

    Like others, I downloaded both the WebOSQuickInstaller.jar and the WebOSDoctor.jar. When I clicked on the WebOSDoctor.jar, it initiated a long download. When finished, I was promoted to start the WebOSDoctor app, which I then closed because I didn't want to wipe the Pre. But then I could not start the WebOSQuickInstaller.jar - I kept getting the file not found error.

    I subsequently found the WebOSDoctor.jar buried in a Java folder, in this path: C:\Documents and Settings\[your user name]\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\54\293c0436-324716c1, where the '293c0436-324716c1' is the WebOSDoctor jar. (The exact path might be different for different users - I sorted the 6.0 folders by date and looked for the most recently modified folder with a random file that's 200MB+.) I copied that file to the folder with WebOSQuickInstaller, renamed it to WebOSDoctor.jar, then ran WebOSQuickInstaller.

    That worked for me. Hope it works for you.
    For Windows Vista this gets funky since MS bocks this access so gotta get to it via Run command:

    C:\Users\"Windows User"\Appdata\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\

    From there is the all sorts of folders. You'll have to look into each one till you find one that is 202,911KB and Modified recently. Try to rename it to what petershiau said above and rest is the same. I did this through Vista64.

    Pretty certain Palm will take steps to keep us from accessing the WebOS doctor this way so this maybe a practice we need to get used to...

    If I do that won't the new WOQI not remember which tweaks I did?

    I am having the same install problems. Any suggestions?

    I had removed and reinstalled Preware and Package Manager Service via WebOS QI the other day, and it accidentally removed Tweed along with them. I'm not upset about this. Just mentioning it. Might try to recreate this. I was using QI v2.02 though.

    So I'm trying to get the virtual keyboard up and running, but I'm running into some issues. I got WebOSQuickInstll.jar in a folder, when I open it I get some long *** error about not being able to download WebOSDoctor. So I download from the direct link and get a zip file for WebDoctor. I read in this thread to rename it to a .jar file. I try to name the zip as WebOSDoctor.jar, no luck, still tries to download Web Doctor. However, if I unzip the file and then name the resulting folder as a .jar file, it will open the Quick Installer, but none of the buttons work. It will let me load an .ipk, but will not install it to the phone. The Device Managment and all other headings under the drop down do not work.

    Any thoughts?

    No, I downloaded another copy of the files into a different folder, launched it and the tweaks still show up. I think it probably just reads them from the phone itself.

    Wait a second....where are you downloading the file from? It should already have a .jar extension. Are you downloading it from the first post in this thread?

    Here is the popup that I get when I go to download the file...you can see it has a .jar extension.

    following this method, I finally got quick install to start working again.

    thank you.

    I started a new folder and saved both files to that folder. I also renamed the webOSDoctor.jar file. I still get the same error as before. I open the new file i created and the only two files there are the quickinstall.jar and webosdoctor.jar (zipped file). I open quickinstall.jar and same error pops up. did I do something wrong? please help

    What operating software are you using? I'm using WINXP SP3, so I can't really comment on other OS's.

    Where are you downloading the 2 files from? Are you getting them from the first post in this thread located here?

    Try this...start from scratch, delete the files in your folder and re-download both files from the first post in this thread. They should both have .jar extentions.

    Here is the what the contents of the folder looks like when you first download both files:



    This time, don't rename anything. When you have both files in the same folder, double click WebOSQuickinstall.jar.

    You will then see the WebOSQuickinstall GUI launch:



    And your folder contents now change to look like this:



    It looks like WebOSQuickinstall.jar automatically renames the other file to WebOSDoctor.jar during the install process.

    Try those steps and see if that helps.

    Nope, nobody knows. It hasn't already been discussed 50 times on this thread and others.

    Apps, no.....tweaks and services...yes (at least it's recommended.) I suppose some apps may have issues after the update but if they do, just delete them and wait for an updated version.
