    What can I try next?
    I'm having the same issue. Says it installs Preware but never does. Anyone got a solution to this? Been a frustrating morning...

    As an update, I found a workaround that helped me move forward with what I needed to do. That workaround was to use webOS QI v 3.14. It successfully installed what I needed.

    I have MSB Pro 10.6.6 Snow Lep OS X. I have followed the directions for getting started. Got to the point where I downloaded Doctor and it ran the Installer. The Installer went thru the unpacking and installing and at the end of the process it said it failed. I went to relaunch QuickInstall and it came up saying I needed the Nova driver and then it also wanted to re-download Doctor again. What did I do wrong!?

    Note: I am using my pre's mobile hotspot for internet connection if that makes any difference.

    Thanks for your help.

    I should also note i am not very computer savvy when it comes to the command lines etc. you all talk about in this thread. I did locate 4 novacom thinga-ma-bobs in my Finder.

    Is this what I need? I really am clueless.

    First try at v4.03 and it didnt work for me. I opened the .jar file and started trying to get a patch onto the PrePlus. I found the patches tab, but only one patch was listed under it. Not sure whats going on. Seems like it isnt loading patches from the feeds.

    Well, attempted to install on my win7 x64 machine to no avail again. I download webOS QI, plug in my pre, prompts to install novacom and download the doctor. Then it states no device is plugged in. Next time i reinstalled all of it, QI keeps prompting to reinstall novacom.

    Not sure what is wrong. I have tried putting the Palm Inc folder in the Program Files (x86) folder, and nothing worked. Tried using back USB ports instead of hub ports. I even tried using an older webOS doctor file i had and nothing still.

    Any suggestions?

    Hey thank you so must for the new quick install (it is so much easier to use). I do have one question. What is the easiest way to install custom boot logos with WOSQI 4/

    I am new to homebrew and quickinstall, but so far I have been able to get some apps and patches installed successfully, even though all the guides online don't apply to this new version. Unfortunately, I have been unable to get a theme installed. I click install in the themes tab, it says it has installed, but it never shows up on my phone. I also can't find where I would uninstall or restore my theme to default. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    I've helped a couple of people with this issue in the last couple of days. We could not work out why it is occurring, so I advised them to alert Jason to the problem, then install the Palm SDK and use the palm-install program to install the ipkg file from http://get.preware.org/

    I have in program files a directory Palm, Inc with subdirectory novacomd which itself has a subdirectory x86. I copied novacom.exe (note: not novacomd.exe) to this x86 directory and WOQI no longer hangs on the installation process.
    Now all i have to do is go enjoy what i've installed!
    hope this helps
    --> Im having the same issue:

    In plain english, after i copy the novacom.exe to (x86 folder), it still prompts me to install novacom as soon as i open WOQI. as tho i never installed.

    Not to mention, my XP computer is Not recognizing my pixi.
    ..AND... when i plug my device into the USB port(FYI - tried all different ports) it recognizes my device as a "Generic Serial" and "Reduced...R-(ACM)" not as a Pixi???

    ANY ideas why i cant Get my pc to even find my device?

    NOTE:I recently flashed my pixi to another carrier and im kinda afraid to use webOSDoctor for fear of bricking my pixi.

    Oh and did i mention, when i plug my device in via USB plug, it doesnt even give me an option to "Sync", or "JustCharge"??

    Is there an alternative application for 'themer' and linux commandline that no longer appears on the tools menu of 4.03

    Will this allow me to remove BS Sprint applications, such as NASCAR and Football? I wanted to use Internalz and remove fluff from my phone.

    I have a question. I've been trying to install some patches, but every time I do I get this error:

    Unable to contact webOS-Internal's Servers.
    Cannot download AUPT scripts for the patch.

    (Also, this just started. I installed some partches an hour ago and it worked fine)

    Use Internalz! (get from Preware or WOSQI if you don't already have it). Just copy the pics to your Pre, name them palm-logo.png and palm-bright-logo.png (that's the glow one) and move them from the /media/internals/ folder to /usr/palm/sysmgr/images/ then do a luna reboot...
    If "If's" and "But's" were candy and nuts we'd all have a Merry Christmas!

    Ok so dumb*** me bricked my phone. After getting it all setup, and running again (damn me for not thinking the 1ghz kernel wasn't good enough... just had to try the 1.2ghz kernel.. Luckily, it just wouldn't boot my phone..) I have a question..


    I'm too tired to get preware up. I've spent 11 hours trying to just download the damn correct webOSdoctor (it kept timing out, or just finishing too early, to where I just downloaded 2mbs at a time, paused, resumed, downloaded 2 more mbs.. rinse, wash, repeat).. But enough of that.. my point...


    Will any webOSdoctor program work for preware? Or do I need to use the one that webOS Quick Install downloaded? Because I deleted that one in frustration when it wouldn't reboot my phone..


    (I live in the middle of nowhere, and rely on a Virgin Mobile MiFi Hotspot with no cap, runs at between 75kbs/sec to 600kbs/sec in my area for my broadband internet. My other two choices are dial-up, and thats both too slow, and won't let me on XBL or my PSP, or Satellite "Broadband", which after looking up, has daily bandwidth caps of 75mbs, and monthly caps at around 10gbs.. Which I would just obliterate. And has usual speeds of 700bytes/sec to 5kbs/sec. So downloading something on my option alone can be time consuming.. Man I miss the city...)
