    Anyone else still having problems getting AvantGo in color on the Prism?

    I read the previous threads and have deleted everything from the desktop. I then deleted everything from the backup directory. I then deleted everything from the Prism. By everything I mean anything that had avgo under Zícatalog. Anything that had Avantgo and anything related to mobile link. I also tried deleting it just using the delete menu. I have done this about 6 times or so now.

    Each time the Avango icon is not color which I am sure it would be. No pages come up in color. I also use this site as a reference as I know it uses a Avantgo color icon.

    I really donítí want to have to kill everything if I donít have to. Why is this so hard, it should be a simple re-install shouldnít it? I know it was a fresh Avantgo as well as when it is first ran it doesnít have any channels, then I re-synced them all. I also tried setting refresh all content under Avantgoís optiond/server prefs menu.

    If it helps the version currently on the Prism is 3.3 build 403

    It sounds silly, but try this.

    Go download AvantGo from this link:

    http://handspring.com/products/visor...software.jhtml

    I installed the Avantgo that came from this link and I have color.

    Did you also remove the "libmal" file? Following what others did in the earlier thread, I now have color:

    1. Disable HoySync on PC

    2. PC - Windows Add/Remove Programs:
    - Remove Mobile Link
    - Remove AvantGo

    3. PC - Palm/Visor backup directory:
    - Delete all AvantGo files
    - Delete Mobile Link
    - Delete libmal

    4. Visor - Delete Menu:
    - Delete AvantGo
    - Delete Mobile Link
    - Delete libmal

    5. Bring HotSync back up, and sync Visor

    6. Get latest version of AvantGo, and follow their normal directions for installing...

    Yes I did the above EXACTLY as shown. I did it every way I can think of. I had no idea exactly what was gong on here.

    I did it again and again... nothing.

    So I went nuts and backed up and did a hard reset making sure there was nothing inthe backup directory to restore.

    Anyway with all the playing around I am not sure exactly what did it but it works now!

    Thanks for all the help!

    Just thought I would mention something funny. I got to work today and synced and guess what. My Visorcentral channel is back to non-color

    The other channels are fine and in color but the one for here for some reason is not. I deleted the stuff from the Prism again and re-did it just to see and also did a refresh content. Weird stuff.

    I am assuming Avantgo is okay thought since the other channels have color so I am not worried about it.

    I just thought it was ironic.

    I'd try going to your Avantgo account, and clearing the channel cache and whatever else you can clear in the account management panel. It'll take a little longer to synch the next time, but I think it'll bring back color.

    I hope this helps

    I'm also getting VisorCentral's logo in b/w right now. I'm sure it's only temporary, though. The same thing happened to my yahoo channel a couple of days ago, and it was corrected the next day. Well, at least you know someone else is getting that too.

    Marcus recently changed the channel so you have to select whether to use graphics or not. Try playing with those settings.

    Well detailed. It works I wasn't missing the colour but now that it's there, it makes my purchase much more worthwhile. Thanks. http://discussion.visorcentral.com/v...ons/icon14.gifhttp://discussion.visorcentral.com/v...ons/icon14.gif

    No, what we've done is create separate logos so that VDX users won't have a distorted logo when they view our AvantGo channel. You can click the "Customize visorcentral mobile" or "edit preferences" link to specify when you want to see images and links on your Visor.

    If you browse to that link above on your desktop it will always be b/w, but on the Visor Prism the image will be in color.

    James, I changed the setting to show pictures everywhere. But logos, pictures & smilies are Still in black & white... My other AvantGo Channels are in color.

    When I first got my Prism last Tuesday, I too had other channels in color but VC was not. I tried the following suggestion by James posted in another thread and it worked like a charm.

    Try using Z'Catalog to del all of the avantgo items from your VPL and make sure they're not in the backup dir. Then find your folders for AvantGo and MobilLink and look in the Palm folder for the .prc files and install those.

    Z'catalog is a great piece of freeware that allows you to see all of the hidden files associated with an app. BTW, in the above quote James meant VPR (Prism) instead of VPL.

    Hope this helps.

    David, I used Z'catalog & deleted everything, then uninstalled & re-installed AvantGo. Lo and behold, now pictures are color in VisorCentral Mobil. However, I still get black & white logo. Well, better than all B&W, I guess. Thanks!

    Taki...

    I failed to mention after I executed James' suggestion, I think I had to sync 2 or 3 times to get the VC logo in color even though the images were in color after my first sync as you mentioned above.

    Hmm, have you also tried going into Channel Manager and emptying the VC channel and resynching?

    James, using Channel Manager worked! Thanks

    Here is the problem I have with Avantgo with my Omnisky.

    I will go to a website, like photos.yahoo.com and look at my online photos.

    One time I will look at them and they will be in color. If I surf for a little bit, then go back, the same page is in black and white.

    Sometimes I can get color back if I do a modem sync, but not always.

    Anyone else have the problem of some pages being in color, then the same page in black and white at a later time?

    TIA
