    I have created the first Palm Pre GUI downloader/installer that does not require ROOT access.

    ----------------------
    INSTALLATION
    ----------------------
    Step by Step guide with pictures on how to install!

    First all you need to do is install the .ipk with the SDK (if you already have it and are familiar with the palm.bat files) or WebOS Quick Installer (if you do not have the SDK and like GUI's).
    I STRONGLY RECOMMENDING INSTALLING fileCOASTER with WebOS Quick Installer!!!

    ----------------------
    DISABLE APP LIMIT
    ----------------------
    1. Open WebOS Quick Installer
    2. Click on the IPKG Repo Viewer on the right.
    3. Select WebOS-Internals Feed (all)
    4. Select 'Fair Dinkum App Limit'
    5. Install

    ----------------------
    HOW TO USE
    ----------------------
    1. Select the application you wish to install.
    2. Tap the download button.

    OR

    1. Enter the url of the file you wish to download.
    2. Press the download button.

    images will be stored in the wallpapers folder, ipks will be downloaded and installed and prc's will be placed in the appropriate classic directory.

    ----------------------
    FILE STORAGE / TYPES
    ----------------------
    You can also download any other file you want on the net including mp3's.

    The files get stored into /media/internal/downloads and after you install the IPK it gets deleted to save space.

    Images (jpg,png,jpeg,gif - get saved to the /media/internal/wallpapers folder or if you connect as usb drive the /wallpapers folder.)

    PRC's get added to Classic install.

    MP3's and everything else get stored in the /media/internal/downloads folder (or if you connect your pre as a USB drive it will be in the /downloads folder) ** I have tested this successfully and was able to have the Music player recognize the new mp3 download **

    ---------------------
    MISC / LICENSE
    ---------------------
    This application is Closed Source. Please do not modify/copy/alter/re-distribute without permission from the author.

    This application is AS IS and is only intended to be used to download beta applications from precentral.net. This is not an app catalog and you should use Palms App Catalog to sell your applications.

    This is for application testing only.

    ---------------------
    DONATIONS
    ---------------------
    Donations are greatly appreciated and can be donated HERE!. Again thank you ALL for your continued support!

    ---------------------
    NOTES
    ---------------------
    *** If the app list is not loading, reboot the phone as the palm connection agent gets tied up sometimes.
    This does install the My Tether application ONLY, it DOES NOT install the My Tether Service. Palm does not allow services to be installed without rooting as of yet. HOWEVER when you install My Tether via fileCoaster your pre will freeze / be slow until you close fileCoaster and re-open it. I believe this is caused by fileCoaster trying to install the My Tether service but not being able to.

    Also it seems to only install applications created via the palm-package.bat file. The previous 'How to package manually' posted on the predev wiki DOES NOT work with this applications. If you have issues installing an application post here to see if others installed it successfully.

    You may have to many applications stalled or not enough memory.

    After trying a few different ones and rebooting this is whats in /media/internal/downloads:
    lane@castle:/media/internal/downloads$ ls
    download-23587-com.keenstudios.checkers_1.3.1_all
    file0y5ftm
    EDIT: Reinstalled and it's working fine!
    EDITX2: It worked with the carpenter's level but not the magic 8 ball. It worked with the comics app!

    Nice idea. This could slowly develop into an alternative AppCatalog... Keep on working on this please.

    Awsome! Works like a charm, already have downloaded and installed 3 apps on my gf Pre, and they all installed without a problem. You rock! Great job!

    This DID NOT install the app to my pre.

    Does your phone need to be in Dev Mode for this app to install the ipks?
    Went from iPhone to Pre and love it!

    Yes, that wasn't clear - do you need to be in Dev mode to install the apps that fileCoaster installs?

    If you have the terminal app installed, you can install this on the pre w/ this command

    ipkg -o /var install http://tr.im/u1bk

    Then I rebooted the Pre and FileCoster was there!

    Iím a lucky man to count on both hands

    How do you "copy the download link from the textbox on the forum" on the Pre? I can't seem to copy it.

    Is it posible to install the "My Tether" app with fileCoaster ? Or will I still have to root in the webosinternals.org file?

    Click it once to make it resize, click somewhere else, click it again and it should highlight the whole thing. If that doesn't work just manually highlight.
