You should open up your launcher, find "HP App Catalog", open it up, and buy your games there. That is the only way to get games/apps on your Pixi.

I understand, sledge, pointing the requester to the app catalog. Sound advice. All legitimate support needed. Tried and true apps. No argument there.

I also appreciate the user's first post is asking a "gimme" type question...

However, I feel something important was glossed over. The user said he couldn't find the right Doctor. I don't think it wise to send him off with no means of support should he bonk his device. That's just mean. No offence is intended. I assume you might be a bit distracted and missed the vital part. From what I've seen you do a great job and I know being a Mod is unpaid and often unthanked. That's why I thanked your post above anyway.


@ blackylol

You need a Doctor. Don't start bashing around your OS without one.

There are links for AT&T Pixi Plus Doctors:
WebOS Doctor Versions - WebOS Internals

There is a 1.4.3 and a 1.4.5

I hope that helps.

Stick around the forum... Read stuff... Learn about your device and webOS.


A fellow new user,
RumoredNow


P.S.: be sure though... You say your device is unlocked? Doctoring might lock it again if you use the AT&T Doc. I'd look around the forums and on webOS Internals some more before proceeding anywhere.

There are other apps/games you can find in Preware, which is a free source, and this is the thread you need to go to for instructions.

Sorry for the short post I was half-busy...and I'm off again

You went past what I know there... I'm still new to webOS... There are unlock services you can find online. Or search these forums for advice.

Good luck.
