    Hi, silly question from a non-programmer type.

    Your first post says that rooting is required for this program - understood. I'm just wondering if this will now install and run if I use Greg's PreBrew method of installing IPK via pre dev wiki?

    Thanks a bunch, and sorry in advance if this is a totally obvious "no"...

    No.

    You have to install services that require root in addition to the application.

    An IPK version wouldn't work. See the first post.

    Hi I am trying to get this installed.

    I did:
    1: ROOT your Pre.
    2. Login to your Pre using your favorite terminal.
    3. Make sure you are running as root (type: "su -")
    4. cd to root (type: "cd /")
    5. Make sure the filesystem is RW (type: "rootfs_open -t")
    6. Get the flashlight tar. (type: "wget http://lunaware.com/flashlight.tar")
    7. Untar it. (type: "tar -xvf flashlight.tar")

    When I type tar -xvf flashlight.tar I get "invalid tar magic"

    If I try to do all the steps all over again I get
    can't open 'flashlight.tar': File exists when I get to step 6.


    Any help would be apreciated on how to fix these messages

    Thanks

    Invalid magic usually means a bad download. Try to wget it again, maybe?

    As root:
    Code:
    rm /flashlight.tar
    Then try the instructions again. If that doesn't work, I have no idea.

    You can install the app itself, but the LED will NOT light up unless you install the DBUS service jar running as root from a command line!

    The IPK is therefore useless! Do not even bother with it, as it will do absolutely nothing.

    Note: All the "type:" instructions below mean to type everything as seen between the quotes, not including the quotes, then hit enter.

    Again; here are the working instructions:
    1. ROOT your Pre. Portal:Accessing Linux - WebOS Internals
    2. Login to your Pre using your favorite terminal.
    3. Make sure you are running as root (type: "su -")
    4. cd to root (type: "cd /")
    5. Make sure the filesystem is RW (type: "rootfs_open -t")
    6. Get the flashlight tar. (type: "wget http://lunaware.com/flashlight.tar")
    7. Untar it. (type: "tar -xvf flashlight.tar")
    8. now reboot and logout. (type: "reboot", then "exit", then "exit")

    When your Pre comes back up, the flashlight should work if you have done everything correctly.
    Please replace the original install instructions with these. 100% easier than what's included.

    This App is awesome. Thanks

    Guys, be careful how bright you make the LED. It may not be designed for continuous operation at full brightness.

    I'd stick with half brightness for the app just in case.
