    WebOS Quick Install v4.6.0

    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.

    Donations are appreciated as I'm just one person developing this app during my spare time.


    Enjoy! :-)

    Source code: https://github.com/JayCanuck/webos-quick-install

    Setup Guide/Problem Troubleshooting
    • If you would like step-by-step directions on how to get things up and running, or are encountering some issues, I highly recommend checking out the official WOSQI Homebrew Guide.



    Requirements
    • Java 1.6 or greater
      • For Mac OS X, once you've installed Java 1.6, run /Applications/Utilities/Java/Java Preferences. Then click and drag Jave SE 6 to top of both list, and exit the program. This will set Java 1.6 as the default version to use.

    • Novacom or ADB
      • Novacom will get installed automatically when you run WebOS Quick Install. ADB is required for LuneOS only.

    • DevMode enabled
      • This can be done on your device by typing "upupdowndownleftrightleftrightbastart", opening the DeveloperMode app, and enabling the feature. Not required for LuneOS.


    Lastly, when you plug in the device, if you want to use WebOS Quick Install, choose the "Just Charge" option on the device.


    Running WebOS Quick Install
    • Simply double-click WebOSQuickInstall.jar and (as long as Java is installed properly) it will launch


    Features
    • Stylish easy-to-use GUI
    • Cross-platform support (Windows, Mac OS X, Linux)
    • Supports off-feed .ipk and .patch files
    • Full-featured feed viewer, with custom feeds allowed
    • No Linux knowledge required, no root access required.
    • webOS 3.x-compatible
    • Full device information section
    • Send and receive files to and from a webOS device.
    • Multiple device support
    • Supports Open webOS/LuneOS
    • Supports English, French, German, and Simplified Chinese

    Do note: installed apps don't appear in the feeds.

    Though for the record, you can add custom feeds in the Settings window

    Thanks for the update!

    I am not sure of how its supposed to work, but I installed WebosQI v4.0, opened, connected my pre plus and saw no feeds, no apps, etc. Then I hit the "globe" refresh icon and lo! everything loaded. Even found a solitaire app that I thought webos never had.

    ( Dont hate me for this ) Since I use the command line for everything, I found ths typo in the first message of this thread: /Application_s_/Utilities/Java/Java Preferences

    Thanks,
    veerar.

    Great job, perfect timing.

    I do have a problem, when I plug my Pre and just charge, it states no device is connected and shuts down.

    Yea, that's how it works. The main screen is where you can add/remove off-feed .ipk and .patch files. The globe button opens the feed viewer

    And thanks for the correction. I don't have a Mac and was just going off what I've been told. Updated the first post.
