    Can you check this problems:

    Open the app catalog. I've noticed that the screen is moved 1 or 2 pixels to the left. Test it with minimizing the App (it reverses).
    Or (with open App Catalog) go to the lock screen (on/off-Button). Same effect.

    Please test this for Confirmation !!!!!


    Additionally all old PDK-Games (like Dungeon Hunter, Dead Runner and all this stuff) are screwed. Looks like their Download is corrrupt or the App Catalog update kills the PDK-Games Compatibilty.

    Please test this for Confirmation with an old PDK App on your Touchpad and an new downloaded one (Use Dead Runner, it's free). On my system Dead Runner starts in the wrong orientation !

    Further testing shows the first problem is for every app !

    I didn't notice 2 pixels...man you got good eyes to see that.
    I did download Dead Runner and it "sort of" works. Definitely doesn't look right and it seems the buttons aren't working as they should, but the game definitely is running, so I don't know. Seems weird it would sort of work, I'd think it would either work or not.

    Someones gotta write a patch to add a "Check for updates now" button in the software manager. Over to Feature request thread I go....

    Noticed that the non-hd PDK apps that I have installed today are also all fubared. Found an interesting note, more like lack of, that the apps are all missing the metadata.json file so I put one in from another pdk app and all the sudden the app works fine.

    **Update** I just installed Dead Runner on my touchpad and I got the same problem simossoft describes. I just took the metadata.json file from angry birds installed on my touchpad sometime ago and put it into this app Dead Runner and all the sudden it works. Here are the steps to hope fix this till HP updates catalog or watever:

    1. Get Internalz Pro, did not use Gemini yet.
    2. Think of an PDK that you have installed sometime ago, taking Angry Birds for example.
    3. With Internalz pro, go to directory /media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/ and locate com.rovio.angrybirds folder and open it.
    4. Tap on metadata.json file and select copy.
    5. For the sake of treating Dead Runner app, you will copy the file to /media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/com.distdevs.app.deadrunner
    6. Wait for the notification of the file been copied and then try to open Dead Runner and that's it!

    I've done this to Dead Runner, Art of Glow, Glow Hockey, Dungeon Hunter, and few others today I installed/reinstalled and all were missing this file so grafting a metadata.json file in fixed them.

    **Update 2** If you dont have a metadata.json file to use from a non-hd pdk app, this use the following code and paste if into notepad and save the file as metadata.json . Afterwards drop this file to USB drive on the touchpad and then steps 4-6 above.

    Code:
    {"version":1,"devices":[101]}
    **Update 3**

    I have uploaded the json file to use as a zip file. Follow steps 4-6 once you have extracted the file out of zip and onto USB drive of your touchpad.

    Additionally some more problems are 'introduced' with this silent App Catalog Update:
    Inside the app Catalog pictures for many Programs are missing and some programs are producing an 'install-error'. I find so far 2 : Sky Patrol demo and Crazy Birds 2.0 free

    After 13 non-hd PDK apps Ive installed today, all were fubared and missing the metadata.json file. I had Angry Birds non-HD on my touchpad for a while and obviously it had this file and was fine so I just deleted the app and reinstalled the app and low and behold its fubar. Grafted the json file in and all good. Appears the app catalog is skipping files in the pdk packages to install....

    Also noticing that using this fix kinda shrinks up the height of the apps so they are not filling all the screen in. I used the same file that was working previous so its just happening to fresh installs so something else has changed too. Getting wife agro ATM so gotta look at that in the morning

    "The new update really screwed up my touchpad! Can you all download it and confirm that?"

    ... "this tastes like crap .. try it?"

    hmm.

    Think I'll pass. I don't even know -how- to update software yet.

    I had trouble installing Audubon Birds last night, tried like 5 times and kept getting install failed error messages. I wonder if its related.

    Do try to delete the app, reinstall the app (first open the app to see if bug happens again), and then put that metadata.json file into directory on your device:

    /media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/com.distdevs.app.deadrunner

    Dont need to restart but prolly a goog idea that after deleting the app to first restart.

    I had Avatar and Super KO working on my 16gig TouchPad and after I upgraded to a 32gig TouchPad 2 days ago these two apps are not working anymore. I'm pretty sure the HP webOS team is currently working on this issue.
