    Same question. That was the tweak that got me into WebOS Quick Install in the first place. I've sorely missed the iPhone spoof tweak.

    Well I don't know if this matters but, I am running this on a mac.

    I have dev mode enabled on my pre and i couldnt click on a thing because once i click on webosquickinstall.jar it starts the program and then just closes, so there is nothing for me to click on!

    Hope this helps a little!!

    Remove all WebOS Quick Install tweaks, Preware patches, and the virtual keyboard if you have it installed. I don't know about themes, since I don't have any.

    I keep getting this error when trying to use the tweaks. I have the latest quickinstall and/java/and webdoctor. Even when I select yes to download the latest package it will fail. What gives?

    It's probably the wrong thread for this... and you didn't provide a lot of info on your Pre, but here's a brief rundown, based on what I've read throughout the forums (read all steps first):
    1) Remove all tweaks and patches using the same method that you used to install them (Quick Install or Preware)
    2) Similarly, remove all themes (as mentioned elsewhere)
    3) If 1) and 2) make no sense, and you haven't let a mad hacker customize your phone, skip to 6)
    4) Verify on your phone that all patches/tweaks/themes are removed
    5) If you've ever had your phone in developer mode, put it back to normal
    6) Use the backup utility on your Pre (same launcher page as update) to backup your stuff (always a good idea)
    7) If you've got any Homebrew apps already on your Pre (apps not from the official App catalog), don't worry about them. No guarantee that they will work after the switch, but they shouldn't cause any issues with you're Pre, as long as you didn't use somewhat esoteric means to install them (if you can't explain how you did it to your favorite non-tech, then you might want to consider providing more details on the state of your Pre, but in a more suited thread, please!)
    8) Turn it off and back on again (takes awhile, might not be necessary, but can't hurt anything)
    9) Go ahead and accept the update.

    I recommend that you have WiFi hooked up, things go very quickly that way.

    Homebrew: Once you've gotten WebOS updated, read the first post in this forum COMPLETELY... Included on the references, instructions, etc. I also recommend reading every post in this forum until you understand what people did and what went wrong for them. You can then decide if you're ready to jump into Homebrew. There are risks, but if you keep up to date on the experiences of others, you can usually work through it. Tripping points usually involve the type of computer (PC/Mac), PC operating system (XP, Vista, Windows 7), and skipping steps. READ THE LINKED INSTRUCTIONS IN POST #1.

    10) DONATE to Jason (see post 1) he's doing A LOT to keep WebOS and Palm floating after a not-quite-ready for prime time release of the Pre.

    Good luck (and no guarantees!)

    Hey Jason,

    I was trying to use the receive file option in the tools section. In the box that comes up I seclect the file I'm trying to copy from the phone, then the other box I select a spot on my comp ''my documents'' folder and the hit the button, I get an error message that access to the my documents folder is denied. I then tryed a different spot on my D drive and it aslso said access was denied.

    BTW I'm a noob and have no clue what I'm doing so I maybe be going about it all wrong but, what I'm trying to do is extract a copy of the folder that has the 31 png icons for the calendar. I changed them one by one using the send file option of webos QI, I didn't save each one, I just made the change and sent the file. Now I want a copy of all 31png files.

    Any help would be great!

    I've noticed that once I plug in my phone into my computer, sometimes it works and sometimes it does not.. but the one thing I noticed about when it works, is that "Palm Novacom" is listed under Hardware Devices when I right click the Safety Remove Hardware icon that appears when I plug it in.. is there anyway to MAKE it "Palm Novacom" run under Hardware Devices? I've verified that it's already running services.msc..

    I have changed my themes before but I am now having trouble. I follow the same instructions, set to charge, and I keep getting locked on this screen for over 20-30 minutes. It never took that long before. When I went to charge my Palm one day it asked me to leave it plugged in and download an update. Would this have any affect on changing Themes?
  15. #1335  
    Have you switched your Palm to Developer Mode? That's the only way WebOS QuickInstall can see your phone.

    If Developer Mode is off then it won't see it.

    If you download DevMode Launcher you can switch on or off Developer Mode easily. The only thing is your phone will need to be restarted after you switch Developer Mode on. Once you do that plug it into your computer, select "just charge" and then start WebOS QuickInstall and the program should see your phone.

    @emoney_33: good idea... I'll try to get to that.

    The saga actually continued - the issue was not the backups... The issue was...... Google CALENDAR! (yes, I know... how could that mess up my Pre??? - IT CAN).

    Here's how to tell
    - If your Pre starts having issues with your google calendar appts (i.e. repeatedly showing the same "meeting notice".. you dismiss it... it comes back...), take note.
    - If your Pre then starts reporting "Phone Offline" ... sudden disconnects - you should also see that your battery will get drained faster than a chicken on a junebug... warning #2.

    If you see these happening... try deleting your Google calendar account. That worked perfectly for me. The box settled down... no more "Phone offline" issues and the resulting battery drain/CPU hogging (resulting from the serviceboot java applet going nuts that the radio service has dissappeared... Palm... can you fix that?? seems like a bug...).

    Anyway, FYI... I'm SO HAPPY I have my beloved Pre back to health! Only took 2 days to triage... :-( Such is life...

    Cheers,

    Niospecv, getting the same thing here on a MacBook about needing pkg mgr, etc. - same failure, too.

    (2.0.3 still works, 2.7.2 won't.)
