    yep, zip/rar extraction is in the works

    I'll look into it

    Now that I've got my own subforum, the next FileMgr Service release will separate into its own thread for better organization

    OK. I thought you had to restart/reboot your phone/Pre/Linux for the file manager service to restart. Not Luna... This is what I've done in the past.

    Jason?

    Yea, the java needs to reboot (which it should in Preware/WOSQI). If it doesn't, reboot the device

    I tried this and still get the ca.canucksoftware.filemgr is not running. I cannot find it on the Pre either. I've tried filecoaster and WebOSQuickInstall 2.6

    The other day all I wanted to do was 'rename' a file. The file was located in the 'media' partition. That is the partition that we see when we hook up our Pre's via USB to our computers. right?

    I also know that Jason has crippled Internalz from doing very dangerous things that can get most novices users (and I am willing to put myself in that class, even though I've had Unix and worked in tech support for years) into big trouble.

    Is it possible to allow us to at least 'rename' a file in the media partition?

    Thanks!

    And yes, I know I can hook up my Pre and do it from my computer. I wasn't near a computer and just wanted to fix something fast and all I needed to do was rename a file.

    I do allow file write/delete access in all of /media/internal/ and /var/. The reason you can't rename yet is because that isn't implemented yet. Next version it'll be in the file Info panel

    any guestimates as to when that next version could grace our unworthy little screens. I mean, I'm sure you could just use one of your 10 coding hands to ready it right on up. Seriously though, just judging by the speed of other devs progress, since I'm not a programmer, I don't know how you keep up. But you do.

    if your response is "its ready when its good and d*#n ready", I understand. Thanks either way. Internalz, together w/terminal by far the most valuable resource on my pre.

    where in Internalz can I look for the default contact picture? I am trying to change the file for contacts in my phone without a pic.
  11. #331  
    would there be any way to install patches using internalz. I would like to download patches through my phone and then install them with internalz only for those patches that are not found available via preware

    Yea, patching is in the works along with many other features
  13. #333  
    awesome I can't wait.
    what about a way to unzip? Lol
    I'm exited

    SECURITY VULNERABILITY ALERT.

    Allowing patches to be installed over the air from a random location on the internet will open up an untrusted privilege escalation path to malicious Linux root access and put people at significant risk of social engineering attacks.

    I would strongly advise against it, and from my discussions with Palm Security folks, they would also.

    I didn't mean from ota, I meant from within the file browser, aka the user has already chosen to manually save the file to the Pre. And even then, it'd follow the WebOS-Internals, so it's be completely undo-able by multiple ways

    "Hi, I've got this great new patch available on my cracks-are-us.ru website which improves the performance of your Pre by 200% and fixes the repeating 1.2.1 updates problem and allows you to have a million cards open at once.

    You just have to download this patch file, and install it using Internalz ..."

    This is the scenario I am concerned about. There is no anti-malware safety net on the Pre. It doesn't matter whether a patch can be removed cleanly or not, once it's on the device it can be sending all your keystrokes (including the password to your internet banking site) back to the botnet ...

    The layers of defence (and yes, they are not perfect) that we have at the moment is that all patches added to Preware are reviewed for security by people that have a long and reasonably trusted association with the Pre homebrew community, and all installations of patches via Preware give the option for the user to view the script which installs the patch, and all patch files are available for public review in a public git repository. We consider this to be enough layers of review and deterrent to minimize the risk to an acceptable level.

    If you remove those layers of defence, you are left with no defence at all. That is not an acceptable level of risk.

    While I think we all (or at least I) totally appreciate all your work to make the Pre experience the best and safest experience possible, jason already allows .patch installations via webOS Quick Install... so how is what he is suggesting for Internalz any different? If you think that this is really a big issue, wouldn't we need Jason to remove this functionality from webOS QI...not that I am suggesting that, just playing devil's advocate.
