    I'm not an expert, so hopefully others can give you more sound advice. Let's start at the beginning...
    By "load up the installer", do you mean running WebOS Quick Install?
    Are you putting your device in developer mode before plugging in the usb cables?
    Have you seen Derek Kessler's excellent starter guide on this site? Just in case, it's here: http://www.webosnation.com/how-insta...bos-smartphone

    Overall, it should be a fairly straightforward process. But don't fret too much, you're not alone... I remember having to do things a couple of times to get it to work on my original Pre-.

    From the main screen using Just Type...

    Input webos20090606

    That will call up the Dev Mode switcher from the search function of the device.

    Also... Once you have Preware up and running look for the Unhide Developer Mode in Patches. Makes life easier.

    Read the link I posted. It's all there. Better yet, download the Preware Documentation app from the official app catalog. It's only 99 cents, but you'd be contributing to the app developers who are keeping webOS afloat for all of us!

    How do you like the Pixi so far? I had one for a while after my Pre- broke. I was wary about its small size, but I really grew to like it. It's "The-little-smartphone-that-could"!

    select 'manage feeds' from the top left corner of the preware screen. then ensure 'webos-patches' option is set to 'on'
