Then I try again and I have to RE DOWNLAOD THE DAMN PROGRAM!

    I want a tangible file on my hard drive, is that too much to ask?

    You must have java installed on your computers. If so then all you need are the two files located in the same directory. WebOSQuickInstall.jar and webOSDoctor.jar files. Do NOT run the doctor file, it will overwrite your Pre.

    Simply take those two files and keep them in the same directory on any computer you wish to use it on and double click the WebOSQuickInstall.jar file. That is it. No install at all!

    Also remember the Pre has to be in developer mode. If you are unsure how to do this just read above.

    Also it never hurts to be nice.

    No, it is a jar file, it simply runs. No install needed, that is why it uses java which has to already be installed.

    I looked through the whole thread, and I don't believe this question has been asked before. If it has, I apologise.

    I am looking at applying some of the "tweaks" that are available through the Quick Install program because, quite frankly, I read and read, and still have no confidence in myself doing it through Quilt.

    Anywho, I have read that "tweaks" should be removed before we do an OTA update. Is there a way to copy the whole operating system before tweaks are added, so that may be used to restore the phone before we initiate an OTA update, or is there a simple way to remove all the "tweaks" we install through Quick Install? Or do we just do the WebOS Doctor to restore it to 1.1 before the OTA update occurs?

    Thanks.

    The easiest answer is that the same way you installed the tweaks with quick install will be the same method used to uninstall them. It's too easy. A simple removal of the checkmark in the box associated with the tweak via the WebOS Quick Install window on ur PC will remove ur tweak.

    Wow. You weren't kidding. So easy, even a caveman could do it.

    I feel a "donation" coming on....

    Hopefully he has the text message forwarding tweak on his next update.

    I believe I was lost in the fray of this rather busy forum, I apologize for asking again...

Changing feeds would also display the same error. Any ideas?
    Thank you for sharing your time and extraordinary talents!!!

    Have you tried reading through the troubleshooting guide on the first page of this thread? There is a section for "No device detected." Give it read.

    I was also having a pretty difficult time consistently selecting the right app, but with a bit of training and a bit more focus I'm getting more consistent "hits". Would be up for slightly larger icon set if it is doable.

    I think I'm in need of some emergency support here. I should start by saying I've never encountered a problem before, everything worked flawlessly.

    Today, I was upgrading to the latest WebOS Installer 1.11 if I'm not mistaken.

    I wanted to check out the tweaks that were added as well as install the new file manager thing I believe is called Internalz.

    I did want I normally have done, but my Pre in Dev mode, using the app Dev Mode Launcher.

    Reset the Pre, waited for it to come up and then plugged in the USB cable and hit the 'Just Charge' button.

    I think launched WebOS Quick Install.

    I added the files to be installed.

    I clicked on the 'install' button and now it says 'connecting to device' please wait.

    The problem is that it has NOT moved from that point yet. The installs has usually take seconds.

    I'm going to pull the cable and reboot everything but I'm not sure what will happen.

    And I'm not sure why this happened to begin with.

    Any help would be appreciated as I am in the middle of this.

    Thanks!

    i have a mac and i had to install the nova doctor to be able to run webos quick install
  19. #1039

    I'm running windows vista and accidentally associated the file type with a program since i couldn't figure out how to open it.

    Now I'm stuck in the cycle of having to associate it with another program. I tried deleting webos quick install and re downloading it but it keeps opening it with a program instead of opening by itself.

    What can I do?
