    eztech, have you confirmed that you are using Webos Quick Install 3.02? I noticed I was having ipk errors in Preware and after several attempts to reinstall both Preware and PSM, I finally realized I was still using quick install 2.96. Updating that and reinstalling both worked for me.

    Updating worked for me, as I was seeing similar issues. Another thing to consider is to uninstall any themes you might have installed and then reload the feeds from the new preware.

    Download your appropriate carrier install and doctor to 1.4 this fixed my Issue and worked flawlessly with installing it with WOSQI like I had tried tons of times before. I guess I just needed a clean install ^^

    That is exactly the wrong thing to do.

    If you have a software issue on your phone, you run the webOS Doctor to fix it. If you're going to take a phone to the carrier for any reason, you should run the webOS Doctor to remove any homebrew from it first. Palm and Sprint have no problem with homebrew, but the managers and staff in some isolated stored can be jerks about it and try and blame hardware problems on homebrew software.

    Remember: Always run the webOS Doctor and then try and replicate the problem before taking your device to Palm or Sprint.
