@jaycanuck said he would issue an update "shortly", approximately an hour ago.

Is that one standard galactic hour?

'Cause, I think Tommy Lee Jones would say that time has passed.

Im running windows 7 64 bit and when i download and attempt to install, it freezes on the installation screen and that it. Not sure what is going on but my Java is up to date and have no idea what the problem could be. Any suggestions?

The locations of the files the installer needs to download have changed. The installer needs to be updated to look in the new locations. So it won't work until the a new installer version comes out.

I cannot get the Novacom drivers on my win-64 notebook, so I can't install
the programs I want on my Touchpad.

Is there some new installer coming out, as egumon says?

Where can I find a copy of the Novacom win-64 driver? All the links I
have found on the Internet are broken, including the ones in Jason
Robitaille's WOSQI Homebrew Guide.

I can't even install the Novacom drivers from WOSQI 4.4.0. Each time
I try, I get an error message "ERROR: Driver Installation Failed"

Check the link in my signature. You'll need an archiver (e.g. 7-Zip) to extract from the .tgz.

I'd found that page, but I thought it was only the source code. Thanks!

They only released the source a few months ago, and on GitHub. The links on that page came way before.

I extracted the .tgz file. Now I have a .tar file.
What should I do to install Novacom?

Extract from the .tar file. Linux archives typically nest a TAR inside a compression container, from which I assume you get a better compression ratio from. You've decompressed it from the .gz, and you'll need to pull the actual files from the .tar.

Hi all,

I am at the end of my patience trying to install Novacom so WOSQI (4.4.0) will recognise my Pre2 (which is in Developer mode). As such I hope someone can take me step by step because clearly I am missing something obvious as it was not this difficult when I first setup my phone.

I had to run the Secure Full Erase on my Pre2 and reinstall webOS 2.2.4 via WebOS Doctor which went relatively trouble free (a couple of sessions hung at 72% but it finally installed and everything is running ok on the phone).
Now I want to re-install patches and apps via WOSQI but it is just not recognising the device.

I'm running win7 64bit and have tried to install via the UniversalNovacomInstaller as well as via webosdoctor224pre2wr and most recently after downloading the Novacom-win-64.tgz file (from the link on GMMan @ 08/18/2012, 03:46 PM).
Before opening the compressed file and running the NovacomInstaller_x64.msi file I removed "Palm Novacom" from my Programs list and rebooted my notebook. The installation appeared to run successfully (a command window briefly popped up and disappeared) but still when I launch WOSQI 4.4.0 it cannot/will not recognise my Pre2.

I am running Java v7.0.50 and apparently have Novacomd v1.0.0.76 installed

Hopefully someone can help before my Pre2 goes the way of the Dodo.

cheers

I have a palm pixi plus. I was having problems also installing the novacom driver on my Win 7 64bit pc. I followed the directions of downloading the actual novacom driver according to GMMan and now everything is working perfectly. Thanks GMMan for your help.

Run
Code:
novacom -l
(after you've chdired to the Novacom installation directory (%programfiles%\Palm, Inc\novacomd, if I remember right)) and see what it outputs.

Hey guys, just in case you didn't notice, Jason recently updated the installer to 1.3. The link in the first post is for 1.2.1, so you'll have to go to his Github for the new jar.

I have a Mac with (OS X) System 10.8.2. The recently updated Unified Novacom Installer worked like a charm. No errors. All Novacom drivers installed. Then ran webOS Quick Install 4.4.0. Now I can use freeTether for my Pre3! Thanks!

This lets you dynamically download the current Novacom drivers or extract and run the drivers from an existing webOSDoctor file, if you have one downloaded.

Hi

I am trying to install freetether on my hp pre. I started with installing webosquick install - but it says driver installation failed. I uninstalled novacomd, and then tried to reinstall with universalnovacominstaller. All I get is an "initializing" message. Nothing else happens. Please help. Thanks

Get it from the Palm Open Source site. You may need an archiver such as 7-Zip to extrack from the .tgz. opensource.palm.com
