    Has anyone installed the google maps from webos 2.0?

    Anyone noticed a difference? I think I've noticed a little bit of a difference when it loads.

    Google Maps should be the same. It actually isn't an app. The Google Maps icon basically loads a website...

    Well for me it seems to load a bit quicker than it used to. Even loading the maps.

This file is necessary for anyone wishing to use a pre/pixi on a network that is not supported by palm.

    There is a file /etc/carrierdb/carrierdb.json which seems like it probably contains the data network setting info. I say this after opening it with a text editor, it contains network settings data but it is not formatted correctly with a text editor. What editor should be used for this json file so it appears formatted correctly for editing?

    The way it looks now, any WebOS update to 2.0 will render the data connection inoperable for anyone using a gsm pre or pixi on an unsupported network. I am using an AT&T pre on Bell, and got data working on 1.4.3 by editing this file, but after the 1.4.5 OTA update I had to copy my edited file back to the device to restore the data connection - it was overwritten with the update. Should be OK once someone figures out where the data settings are stored and how to edit the file. This looks like a place to start, but I am not smart enough to edit this file!
    True - every new OTA or doctor update overwrites existing carrier settings db, which can be restored only by copying edited db file from pc/mac to Pre. Unsupported carrier settings can't be modified manually via preferences page in phone app. Pre refuses to save entered data for unsupported carriers. I am affected by this change in new ROM, and will have to block update to WebOS 2.0 until solution to this problem is not found. Please, if someone find solution and right file to edit, please post it here.

    It is eerily silent since then. I wouldn't blame rod if he stops sharing his info on 2.0 after that guy broke the rules posted in the FrankenPre discussion.

    Yup, Tux seems to have a new screwdriver, but why doesn't Tux have the Pre2? Doesn't he have all of the devices before we even know about them?

    Great, I hope they set you up with a free pre-2, if anybody deserves it, you guys do. I also hope you do these more often, I even wonder if you could be a paid consultant for them.

    It seems like webOS 2 has switched to HTML5 databases. Can some shine some light on this? Are there any tools to browse such a database?

    Regarding the disappearing .db3 files, could it be that the HTML5 database is built from the /etc/carrierdb/carrierdb.json file. Or is that json file itself an HTML5 database?

    I looked through some of the code and it certainly manages carrier fields as database contents form databases named
    com.palm.carrierdb.settings.current and com.palm.carrierdb.settings.override

    nope.. take a look at the current sprint doctor and you wont find any reference to the db3 file either .

    heck there isnt even a /var/luna directory so i doubt theyve switched

    Good luck, Rod! I'm glad to see them flying you up for it. I wanted to make it up to enjoy the conference and speakers, but I couldn't juggle my schedule. Have a great flight, and a fun time.

    Well they've switched to something called db8, which should be couchdb-replication compatible. I've tried to run it in qemu-arm-chroot, but had some segfaults and didn't have time to look at them. On the other side there was some article mentioning, that this db8 will be opensource, which means we could compile it for nix, windows and what not.
    The really big thing is the replication, if it is like the couchdb, you could replicate all your data without anything special direct on your desktop, and the second nifty thing is that couchdb is nosql and saves all the data in json, which means extracting the data would be really really easy as it would not be normalized in 100 tables.
