    I have put my new HPTP in dev mode as instructions say to do and had no problems. I installed webos quickinstall 4.2.3 with no problems to my win7 machine.Java is updated. All seems to go well.I run into trouble when I try to download preware. I see it in the list click install it says its downloading, then the same progress window says its installing preware 1.7. Then while the window seems to be installing it just keeps on going. I have waited up to 20 minutes for it to install which it never completes, guess it could be I have not waited long enough, but that don't seem like the case. I actually had to go to task manager to stop. Knowing that I can wipe all clean, I tried to install a couple of other items and get the same response. Any idea whats going on?

    Thanks and this site is great. I will be donating but would like to get this going.
    Thanks for any help.

    Sounds like the similar problem that I had... Never did figure out why but I tried the exact same steps on a different laptop and it work PERFECT without any problems? So sorry can't say why it didn't work but if you have access to another computer try that and see if it works from there?

    Just letting you know what worked for me... Hope it helps!

    I have gone into developer mode on my TP. Didn't need a reboot (I've got the latest firmware). Downloaded the Java app and installed it. Go to run it and it finds my TP (didn't need to load any novacom drivers).

    I click on the globe and it comes up with "downloading and parsing". But after about 30 seconds it stops and says "Error: Feed loading failed".

    What's all that about? I'm on an internal HP network, not wireless. So, I'm stuck.

    Help??????

    Alan
    [edit - just read another post which suggests it may be a firewall issue. I'll try it at home and see if that gets me in]

    Edit - ran it over a 3G connection and it's installed just fine.

    Do you need to update the documentation for installing, so that just before item 9, you have some information about this error message?

    For those of you who can't get QI to work on Lion and if you don't want to go through installing the SDK-PDK (I have no use of it, and don't like to waste precious SSD space) follow these pretty simple steps:

    1. Connect Phone, Press Just Charge
    2. Spotlight Search novacom
    3. Locate file novacomd, open folder keep it ready
    4. Open a terminal window and type sudo, don't press enter yet
    5. hit space, then drag novacomd onto the window and it will paste the filepath there
    6.hit enter, type password (it wont be shown as you type)
    7. launch quickinstall
    8. Novacom should be 'on' now and the terminal window will display activity

    hello,

    big problem...

    I installed a theme "Dark Theme" by downloading ipk file and installed it with QI 4.2.3...
    How can I uninstall it?
    In QI there is no "Themer" or similar thing.

    What to do now?



    Can't install other themes now, so I asked you for help.

    Thanks a lot

    I tried to download but after I double click the jar file it brings up Java Virtual Machine Launcher that says, "Could not find the main class. Program will exit." What do I need to do?

    I got preware installed! with developer mode on and with password

    With Windows XP and novacom installed.

    1. open Task manager > end task all Novacom related tasks
    2. use cmd to sc start novacomd
    3. novacom -r password -c login
    4. go to terminal folder to start novaterm.bat

    then follow instructions from Application:Preware - WebOS Internals

    cd /tmp
    wget http://gitorious.org/webos-internals...e-bootstrap.sh
    sh preware-bootstrap

    done!

    You didn't mention what platform you are running to attempt to get this software going. If some version of Windows, please see my message #641 in this forum and try to run the program manually.

    Hi All,

    WebOSQI 4.2.3 is installed. It can find my TouchPad. I press the globe icon. I get the list of available packages. I search for Preware. It tells me "No Packages Found".

    I scroll down the list and sure enough, no Preware.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    McKay

    Hmmmm. Are you certain it is not already installed? It does disappear from the listing of available packages if it is already on your TouchPad. You can check by selecting Tools then Device Management from the main menu for webOSQuickInstall. After a few seconds, that will show you a list of everything installed on your TouchPad.

    hello,

    I just bought this TP today and am having trouble with the WebOS Quick Installer. I updated my Java, turned on dev mode and downloaded WQI 4.2.3 and ran it. The app will open but that's it. I click on the globe icon and nothing happens. The device name bar is also blank if that means anything.

    Edit - Working now. WQI froze so I force closed it. Then I noticed like 8 Vodacom processes running. Ended one and when I tried to end the next a popup came up asking for my dev mode password. After entering it WQI restarted and everything worked!

    I can't seem to get preware on my touchpad. I'm running mac 10.5.8 and I have java set up properly, I turned dev mode on, I downloaded WebOSQuickInstall-4.2.3.jar but when I plug the usb cable in I only get 2 options, USB Drive and close. I click close and launch the WebOS program which asks to install the novacom driver. I click yes and follow the set-up but it fails saying The following install step failed: run postflight script for Palm webOS driver. I'm hoping someone can help as I searched already and haven't come up with a solid answer; so any help is appreciated. Thanks!
