ATTENTION ALL: WebOS Quick Install v3.0 is now available here.
WebOS Quick Install v2.96
This program is intended for use with WebOS applications that are in-testing, which under section 4.2 of the Palm SDK License Agreement allows for such unapproved applications to be installed on Palm devices. Applications installed with WebOS Quick Install have not be tested by Palm and are installed at your own risk.
This program is freeware, but not opensource. Feel free to share it with other testing forums.
I can be contacted at [email protected]
If you contact me, or post in this thread to contact me, you must also include the following information:
- Device: are you using a Palm Pre or the emulator
- Operating System (include 32bit or 64bit)
- Have you followed my troubleshooting guide completely
I will be ignore emails/posts that don't follow that format.
Donations are appreciated as I'm just one person developing this app during my spare time.
Download Here (EDIT: removed, updated version elsewhere)
Lastly, when you plug in the device, if you want to use WebOS Quick Install, choose the "Just Charge" option on the device.

Installation and Usage Guide
Special thanks to MortiseMaker for making this straightforward guide on setting up and using WebOS Quick Install.
The simple quick start guide is here: Getting Started: Homebrew Apps, Patches, and Themes.

My browser downloaded the file as WebOSQuickInstall.download or WebOSQuickInstall.zip
This seems to be an issue for some people on some browsers. Try renaming manually to ".jar" extension.
I've unzipped the file, what do I do next?
Nothing! Don not, I repeat, DO NOT, unzip/unrar the .jar file. The nature of a JAR file is that it is both an archive and an executable program. We only wanna use the executable program aspect.
How do I run the program?
I already WebOSDoctor downloaded. Do I have to download it again?
Nope, you can just move your existing copy to the same folder as WebOS Quick Install and the program will run.
I'm seeing this screen. What do I do next?
Nothing, close that window! That's WebOSDoctor. You don't want to run that unless you want to reset your Pre to factory WebOS settings (and wiping all your data).
In WebOS Quick Install, clicking menu Tools->Device Management does absolutely nothing
This means WebOS Quick Install is unable to access the WebOSDoctor.jar file. Possibly corrupted jar file. You'll want to delete the WebOSDoctor.jar file then redownload from this link in post #1. Put that downloaded file in the same folder as WebOS Quick Install.
I'm getting "ERROR: No device found."
Common error. Two main reasons this could occur:

WebOS Quick Install v2.7 features a completely re-organized and re-coded Tweaks section. Tweaks, like always, can be installed by clicking the checkmarks, and uninstalled the same way.
In addition, the patches are now linked to the Device Management section, just change the drop-down box from "Applications" to "Patches" and you'll be able to get info and uninstall patches in bulk.
All tweaks are compatible and interoperable between WebOS Quick Install and Preware.
A reminder, it's always best to uninstall all tweaks/patches before an OTA update.
A full list of each tweak in v2.7 can be found in the attached pdf

Just want to put my real thanks in before this is 200 pages long.
Jason, you're the man!
There are folks that are perfectly happy doing everything with SSH and a root terminal, but there are a whole lot more who wouldn't know a bash script if it bashed them on the head, and WOSQI is the one thing that makes it possible for anybody to get this stuff going, whether they're linux savvy or not.
