    title says it all. After the google search "update", the only option to search now is for web. Images, local, and news aren't there any more. What gives?

    I agree. If you go to the bottom of the google search page, you can go to the classic version of google search (the phone defaults to the mobile version) and those options will all be there at the top of the page.

    It is an annoying extra step though...

    If you just go to google from the browser the options are still there in the mobile version, but if you google from universal search they are not. Weird.

    I notice that when you google from universal search the url has "search?client=ms-palm-webOS" in it. When you just go directly to google it doesn't.

    I noticed that too... kind of annoying... maybe change the google search string in the universal search (modify files/patch)

    Very much annoying, sometimes I like to do a google image search, not as easy right now in its current form.

    I do an image search at least as often as a web search on the phone.
    I'm gonna have to dig in and see if I can't change the universal search drop the client string.

    google changed their mobile page address. There is a problem because the code in the universal search sends the search string to the old google url. Palm or a patch needs to address this issue.

    to see what I mean search for something by universal search and then from google.com
    you will notice that they now go to different urls

    fixed it on my end......


    mount -o remount,rw /

    1. Edit the following file: /usr/lib/luna/system/luna-applauncher/app/controllers/global-search-assistant.jsjsjs

    2. Find this code and modify it as such (be sure to use the correct search link):

    this.URLs = {
    'google':$L("www.google.com/m/search?client=ms-palm-webOS&channel=iss&q="),
    'wikipedia':$L("http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Search/"),
    'reddit': $L("http://www.reddit.com/search?q="),
    'twitter': $L("http://search.twitter.com/search?q=")


    };


    3. and modify it as such.....

    this.URLs = {
    'google':$L("www.google.com/#/m/search?uipref=6&q="),
    'wikipedia':$L("http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Search/"),
    'reddit': $L("http://www.reddit.com/search?q="),
    'twitter': $L("http://search.twitter.com/search?q=")


    };



    4. mount -o remount,ro /

    5. reboot
