    Hello everyone! I have a little concern and I was wondering if you guys can help out. I just recently had my sprint pre replaced with another pre and I noticed that the DIRECTV app is no longer there. When I check to see if the app was available in the catalog at the HP site it was. I think that they updated the software and overlooked us PRE owners. Is there any way that I can slap on the old version of the software? I cant seem to figure it out or find it anywhere other than the newer updated one that requires webOS version 2+. Any help would be great! I loved the fact that I could control my DVR from my phone it really was a killer app for the phone.


    Thanks for your time,

    Kevin

    Thanks for the link but when I click it it takes me to the Directv app that requires webOS ver. 2 or greater. I need the version of this app that is compatible with webOS 1.4.5 (im on sprint.)

    Sorry, when you look at it on the desc page, it appears to be the older version. But, when you click to download, it takes you to the new version. I didn't realize that when I posted.

    Maybe you can email directv tech support and they can send it to you? I have the older version on my Pre- but I don't know how to extract it or if thats even possible

    You know That would be a pretty cool solution. To extract an older version of the app. I wonder if anyone on here know how that would be possible? Kinda like mirroring over the app/installation.

    Just Google 'extracting .ipk files' and you can find out how to pull and save apps. We just don't discuss that stuff here as those extracted apps are usually shared as warez instead of kept as personal backups.

    Hey Mods,
    Since there are a few ppl here looking for the old version of the Directv app, I have a question....

    Would it be a violation to post the .ipk file here in the forum? I have it, and would gladly post it if it is ok with the forum rules.
