Running Version 2.9 of WOSQI and Preware 9.16.

Preware shows that I have 9 Patches installed, which is correct. When I use WOSQI "Device Management", it shows my applications but no patches are displayed. No a big deal, but was curious about this.
Palm Pre OS 1.4.5 500/1000 MHz--Provider:Sprint

I get the tweaking require both GNU patch and Lsdiff installed to function and click yes to install now and takes me back to the main WebOs Quick Install screen but nothing ever happens. Tried restarting and doing it multiple times with no luck. Please let me know if someone figures this out.

For the GNU patch issue... Open WebOS Quick Install, click the down arrow (third button down on the right). Select WebOS-Internals Feed (Pre) from the drop-down at the top. Then check mark the GNU Patch and hit Download. After that hit Close and it takes you to the main WOSQI screen where you should hit Install.

This worked for me, hope it helps you all too!

thanks for all you guys do to make the Pre' awesomer...lol

i've begun playing around with wosqi and preware... in wosqi if i go to tools -> tweaks -> online rep i get a list of nice patches, then when i click on one and hit install it just disappears from the list and I don't know where to go from there. that said, i have successfully dl'd a patch from the forum and installed it via wosqi. do i just need to forget about using the tweaks -> online rep??

Any way to install .patch files from the phone now like you can with .ipk files?

Since the WebOSQuickInstall v2.7 update, it's patching system was changed to be fully compatible with the WebOS-Internals format. I added a neat feature of being able to install basic .patch files under that format.

So I figured it'd help people if I gave a quick tutorial
  1. First off, download the patch file.
    Currently the forums don't support .patch uploads, so most times you'll see the .patch inside a zip.
  2. Click the "+" button in WOSQI
  3. Browse to, and select, the .patch file you've downloaded.
  4. Hit the "Install" button and you're done!

(Alternatively, you could just drag and drop the .patch file onto the WOSQI window)

The patch will be completely WebOS-Internals format compatible. This means you will be able to remove it like any other patch: via Tools->Device Management (switch dropdown box to "Patches") or in Preware under the "Patches" section.
can you think of why the Quick Install would say connection refused? the only thing i cannot install is the novacomm software, but it seems nobody had this issue and i am. is there a workaround? Thanks!

Ok, I have a Pre Plus. the vowels on the keyboard don't work, so I was attempting to download a VK. Guess what? Can't get into Developer mode because no vowels, and can't get to the patch "advanced options in launcher" because I can't turn on developer mode to use WOSQI....any suggestions??? (I know...get a new Pre, right? This was a "replacement" because someone stole my original...)
