    I wanted to start a thread for people that have a Palm Pre, but aren't using the Sprint network. I am one of those people and love my phone, but can't access the "app store". I can however use homebrew apps and side load them onto my phone, but "Preware" does not work on my phone because I can't access the "app store". So, I need to get around using Preware. So I'm starting this post for anyone else with this problem. Anyone else that has questions about flashed Palm Pre's please feel free to post here!

    you can install using quick install. i think you need to find the ipkg though. idk where to get that cause i just use preware for everything.
    i would think you should be able to use preware too though. when you try load up preware go to mange feeds and turn off the one the palm app store feed.

    Check to see that you have the most up to date Preware. v0.9.26 or v 0.9.27. It can be found under help in drop down menu.

    it just tries to take me to app store...now i have turned of feeds and it only finds the hebrew keyboard.....i have the newest version of preware...i just downloaded it yesterday

    when you try to download it? Make sure the app you are trying to get is not in the app catalog. U wont be able to get them from Preware. It redirects you to download it from the catalog. Turn off the Palm Beta and palm beta updater as well. The point here, is that being stuck on 1.3.1 really limits your options. No 3D games. You are stuck with Homebrewed stuff, anything found outside of webos internals and precentrals feeds are off limits. At least thats how I am seeing it...

    @seven how do i use the ipkg....i found the keyboard but how do i load it

    Download it and then use webos quick install. Click the green + sign and it should bring up and folder browser, find the location and click ok. Then click the install button.

    webosqi, filecoaster (only for apps), preware. Copy and paste. Not sure if you can do this with terminal though.

    You can always use Meta Doctor to update to a newer WebOS version and enable wifi during the First Use app to sign into a profile. I've been using my Pre off contract since November and still have access to the App Catelog and the Update app. I'm still logged in to my Profile from when I had Sprint though.

    Here's more stuff that I've found, if you haven't already. This one has pretty much everything you can possibly get your hands on that is consider Test Enviroment. Things from precentral, palm catalog, optware, webos internals, patches and so on. Nothing here is unsupported by the developers, so your good to go with downloading. You'd find all this in Preware or Webosqi.
