    Is WebOS Quick Install and Preware completely off line now, along with kernals, etc. (none were listed)?

    My Palm Pre Plus (Verizon) has a crack on side of screen so decided to get the new one that I have up running with all the patches I had, along with Classic. First, I wanted to bypass activation, but couldn't download the SDK or devicetool.jar -- links seem to be broken. I decide to activate my new one and use WebOS Quick Install as I did before, but then decided to just use the old Pre Plus until it dies. However, when I reactivated old Pre Plus, it wiped out all my homebrew patches etc. (Classic still works thankfully - had patched it together when I replaced my first phone). Today, I brought back to life my Treo for the app I need, just in case.

    This past Fall, I updated WebOS Quick Installer that incorporated the new links, but when I tried to install the Preware ipk today it hangs. I can download some themes.

    I'd prefer to get the 2 New Palm Pre Plus I have running/activated before all is shut down. If I can't, they are landfill items, and I'll finally have to migrate to other OS.

    Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I will make sure my hosts file has ip information as you posted.

    I managed to edit hosts file on Win7 and downloaded the devicetool.jar -- followed instructions from a forum post "How do I set up palm profile activation over wifi". This weekend, I'll try to bypass activation on 2 of new Pre Plus to use only with wifi.

    Today, on the other new Pre Plus, I'm going to activate since I have to rebuild the old one from my screw up yesterday. I did get Preware to load on Old Pre Plus so hoping all goes well with New PrePlus. I hadn't used WebOS Quick Install in a while and kept putting device into USB mode, instead of Just Charge.

    Thank you again.
