Often times on these forum, you may notice patches posted in .patch format. Most people are used to seeing patches as ipk files, though in reality, those ipks are actually containing .patch files inside.
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
- 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.
- Click the "+" button in WOSQI
- Browse to, and select, the .patch file you've downloaded.
- 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.
