    I was an original Palm Pre user and loved every minute of it. I was one of the first to homebrew my Pre and follow it's evolution. Over time, I remember there was a way where you could search homebrew apps on your phone and download them straight to your phone and run them, no longer needing a computer.

    Is that possible with the touchpad? I'm not seeing anything about it anywhere.

    That's Preware. You can install that with WebOS Quick Install

    Okay, so feel free to laugh at me, cause i'm really drawing a blank here, but when I downloaded the Preware info, it literally walked me through all the steps to put the pad in debug mode, download webosquickinstall, the doctor, etc and still use my computer.

    Am I missing something really simple.

    Sorry, it's 4am and I can't stop playing with this thing

    Preware is the app you install via WebOS Quick Install. Preware is an on-device homebrew packager manager.

    Do note: Preware Homebrew Documentation is a different app from Preware. One is the documentation app for the other

    This is pry a really stupid question, but on the touchpad, you only have the option to use it as a usb drive or cancel. charging the device isn't an option and the webos won't find my device.

    Am I missing something here?

    Choose "Cancel". Oddly, HP changed the button's label for webOS 3.0.

    I have installed java, both os utilities and plugged in my tablet and still it won't recognize it. What else can it be?

    I remember having this problem with my pre but can't remember the issue. I think it just randomly started working or I had to do it all in a certain order

    Try doing the "Reinstall Novacom" option on the No-Devices-Detected error. May need to restart your computer after that completes. Also, make sure you're using the current version of WOSQI
