    I must start this post by saying that the author of the hulu patch that I mention here has not written the patch for the veer and has no idea if you veer will brick, start on fire, melt down, cause you pain etc if you try this. That being said..........


    I have installed 2.2.4 with all updates on my veer. I wanted to try to watch hulu videos on it as well. I downloaded the pre3 hulu patch found here:

    Hulu Patch for Pre 3!


    It works! I can watch hulu from its website on my veer.

    I did notice however that it works better if I set govnah to performance even though I cannot get an overclocking kernel on my veer due to the fact that I'm running 2.2.4.

    I have not tried this hulu patch on 2.1.x stock veer os. I have no Idea if it would work or not. I can only tell you that it worked on mine running 2.2.4. The veer is taxed to the limit while running the video but it DOES work, I watched it for over an hour!! (plugged in of course)...

    I just downloaded the hulu patch for pre3 that I had the link to in my post above, and executed it in a terminal. I use xecutah and xterm for the terminal on my veer.. Works fine...

    TIP:

    If you are like me and are running 2.2.4 on your veer and the pre3 hulu patch. You may find the hulu site to be very heavy for the veer. Since we don't have a way to overclock 2.2.4. I have found the best solution to be to play hulu content from the imdb site. The veer has no problem at all playing from the imdb site, but struggles without an overclock on hulu's site.

    Amazing, cant wait to try...but I need some help!!! I am very new to webos and was wondering if you could help a noobie out! Any chance you can give me a step by step guide...so far I have downloaded the patch which contains 3 files. Now I am not sure if these files can be just put on the Veer drive or do I have to 'Send ' them through webos quick install? This may be straight forward so apologies for the dumbness in advance.
    Point to note I am running os 2.1.2...

    Many thanks

    If you can't follow the step by step instructions from the first post of the link provided (http://forums.webosnation.com/hp-pre-3/311733-hulu-patch-pre-3-a.html#post3323571) to both install/uninstall you probably shouldn't be doing this. Read the thread FIRST before posting questions that are answered in it IN THE FIRST POST http://forums.webosnation.com/hp-pre-3/311733-hulu-patch-pre-3-a.html?nojs=1#links
    Google the stuff you don't understand, like how to unzip a file, or send it to a specific folder or directory. http://lmgtfy.com/?q=how+to+unzip+a+file

    Follow the instructions exactly as they are for the pre3. I am not sure if this works on 2.1.2 or not. I am sure there are probably others on 2.1.2 that might want to know if it works, so I suggest if you get it working you post your results here. The instructions are very easy to understand. If you get stuck somewhere ask a direct question about where you are stuck and I'll try to point you in the right direction.

    Your SURE that you made the directory and copied the files to /media/internal? Seems like maybe its not on the correct partition if you say you have room...

    I think I may have run the install on the tiny partition. Have reased all and doctored the veer back to 2.1.2 but now recieve the following:

    novacomd socket was closed prematurely novacom: unexpected EOF from server

    So it seems to be running everything OK and goes for a reboot. Then I see the above in the cmd screen and the veer just stays at a black screen. I have to put it into recovery mode and then doctor it again to get any life out of it!

    I'm not sure if you are saying your veer works or not right now? If it is running but you are saying its having trouble then perhaps you could try a secure full erase. Maybe you copied something somewhere it didn't belong and that has caused problems or something?

    It is also worth noting that I believe 2.2.4 has different partition sizes than 2.1.2. So it could be that this would only work on 2.2.4. I have no way of knowing seeing as I never tried this on 2.1.2.
  12. #12  
    No unfortunately still does not work. I am very tempted to go 2.2.4 but just haven't got the time for the input as it seems like a long process. That said I really want BBC iPlayer to work on my Veer, so...
  13. #13  
    Question: I think this is not working for me for 1 reason and that is my webos verison is 2.1.2. Can someone please tell me how I can run the patch from terminal and not make it run on the small partition. At the moment from Webos quick install i run the Linux Commandline and straight away the dos screen shows:

    C:\Documents and Settings\USER\Desktop>"C:/Program Files/Palm, Inc/novacom.exe"
    -d 43cc84c25b5d5cd694aded64e869a5c379f5d7bb -t open tty://
    root@USERHPVeer:/#

    Do I need to change something here before i run /media/internal/hulu install ????

    You can use the terminal on the veer itself. That's how I run it when I install/uninstall it.

    Install xecutah and xterm from preware... Run xecutach, and select xterm.

    you can then use the terminal on the veer.
  15. #15  
    installed xecutah, xterm etc. So when I click on xterm there is a pause of a few seconds then a black screen flashes and disappears. Any ideas?
  16. #16  
    I am envious of you who can patch your veer's. As soon as I do anything with mine I cant use the onscreen keypad when on a call as the screen constantly dims. Its slightly annoying, but I live with it because its a brilliant bloody phone!!!

    Wow, you can't get xterm to run? I have never had any trouble with it. I have no idea what to tell you from here.... It works fine one both my touchpad and my veer. Perhaps you have some trouble with a partition on your veer? At this point, I may suggest you look into going 2.2.4 because that erases and recreates all the partitions on the veer. It sounds like something is very wrong there....
