    My MacBook Pro only has 2 USB Slots and I've tried almost everything. I even uninstalled, and reinstalled WebOS Quick Install and rebooted a couple times. Nothing... :-(

    Hey all,
    I was having the same problem as many and found a fix. It seems that Novacom is not running correctly, and I couldn't get the SDK to find the device either. If you run novacom via terminal first, WebOS Quick Install finds the device right away. Follow the instructions on this page and hopefully it will work for you too! Gets novacom working before you run the app. If this was previously posted in the thread please forgive me. Got it working immediately!!!
    Good luck!!!

    my first post here!

    OMG, getting homebrews on pre is so ****ing EASY! I can't believe how easy it is.

    1. Konami code
    2. download WebOS Quick Install
    3. even easier when when I installed my first app "fileCoaster"

    This, you are awesome. Palm, catch up!

    THANKS!!!

    This worked for me as well. I was getting the device not found error as well, and becoming very frustrated. I put my pre in dev mode, and now I am using filecoaster to download apps!

    Okay, here is how I got this to work in Slackware Linux...step-by-step:
    Please note, run all these commands in a Linux terminal.
    This should work, with slight variation, in any version of Linux.

    Additional Required app
    Alien for converting the novacom .deb to a Slackware package

    Download alien .tgz package file from the link above and install it:
    as root, installpkg alien-8.76-i486-1mch.tgz

    From the head of this thread, download WebOSQuickInstall and novacom
    Convert novacom with alien:
    alien -t --noscripts palm-novacom_0.3-svn177284-hud9_i386.deb

    Install novacom:
    as root, installpkg palm-novacom-0.3-svn177284.tgz

    Run novacom manually: <- (This was the magic that I needed to get it to work)
    as root, /opt/Palm/novacom/novacomd (this is case sensitive)

    Enable dev mode on the Pre:
    In the Pre launcher screen, open the keyboard and type this:
    upupdowndownleftrightleftrightbastart

    This will bring up an icon for dev mode. Tap it, enable it, flick it away.
    Plug the Pre into the USB port and choose "Just Charge the Battery"

    Run WebOSQuickInstall as a non-root user:
    java -jar WebOSQuickInstall.jar

    In the program, under File...Options, select USB Device and check "Show Dev mode..."



    Click Close

    Click the plus sign to add the ipk files you want to install.



    Select the files you want



    Click Select, then Install

    They will take just a few seconds, after which you can close WebOSQuickInstall and press control+C in the Linux terminal to end novacom.
    Unplug the Pre from the USB and enjoy your new apps!

    GIANT thank you to Jason, a Pre user's new best friend for the Home Brew App Install. Great tool, even for a non-developer like me.

    Thank you!!!

    I have read this whole thread, and, unless I missed something, I never saw the answer to my problem.

    I've got WebOSQuickInstall installed on my MacBook Pro 10.5.7. But, I cannot install any IPKs to my Pre via it.

    I can run WebOSQuickInstall OK, and, add IPKs to the list, click "Install!", a windows pops up, that window first says "Connect to device" (for a VERY quick time, less than a second), then says installing (some stuff that is a bit to quick to read, but, I believe includes the name of the IPK I am trying to install), and, seems to complete.

    Then, when I look on the Pre, I don't see the new App in the Launcher.

    From terminal, I have done a "sudo /opt/nova/bin/novacomd".

    I have plugged in my Pre into the USB port and chose "Just Charge".

    I believe I am in developer mode. In any event, I've tried it with the Developer Mode switch showing both Off and On.

    I have REdownloaded my targeted IPKs in case they were not fully downloaded due to a shortsave by Firefox.

    I have also tried downloading the apps via Safari, to take any shortsave issue out of the equation.

    I have rebooted the Mac and the phone a number of times.

    I have tried a few different homebrew apps.

    When I do a "Device Management", I get appropriate information back, including 9 apps. I've seen talk about quantity of applications being a limiting factor. Is 9 too many?

    Also, in "Device Management", the "Device:" line shows <unknown>. Is this a symptom of a problem?

    Any and all help, guidance, or assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm doing something wrong here because I still can't get this program to recognize my pre. It is still giving me an error message that my device can not be found.

    FYI, it looks (yet again) like those of us with Mac OS X 10.4 will not be able to participate.

    Java 6 system requirements for Mac include Mac OS X 10.5.7.
