News? I update pivot.pattyland.de every two weeks, so if you want webosnation news in your AppCatalog...

To change the Pivot you have to enable it in the Tweaks App and input the URL to use...

See my screencap here...

Launcher>Tweaks>System>Use Homebrew Pivot>Yes/No

Or maybe just switch "Feed URL" to http: // pivot.pattyland.de / (without spaces) as that one does get updates.


<edit> Erm... after you uninstalled Homebrew Pivot did you reboot your TouchPad? Try that to erase it completely out of App catalog. I guess you would have to re-install Homebrew Pivot to change over to the PattyLand Pivot...

Reinstall is not necessary, but reboots/reinstalls are never bad

But alway nice to see still interest in that... If there a few user who like the idea to use the feeds from webos nation as Pivot I would rewrite it!

Except that I read back where pingenet said he uninstalled Homebrew Pivot. So he would need it installed again to make any changes stick.

Of course if HB Pivot is on a TP then just change the "Feed URL" in Tweaks and enjoy the new Pivot.


@pattyland - have you thought of getting user written articles for your pivot? Or maybe some cool quotes from recent posts here on the forum?

I'm not sure how much time you want to spend updating the pivot. The reason I tried HB Pivot at all was that GMMan was going to get some content lined up. I was stuck on a static screen like many others and when no help came in this thread, I moved over to your Pivot as it had content...

Would you accept user generated content for your Pivot?

@RumoredNow: Sure! But there were only 1-2 comments, so I thought nobody was using it...

I don't spend any time on updating the pivot, it is updating on it's own! I developed an automated RSS-Feed to Pivot Skript that runs every 2 weeks. There would be no problem to ingerate a second feed from a blog with open registration or a third like a twitter search for webos...

Well, personally, I didn't like the never-completing loading bar that stuck at 93% and called me antsy. Nor do I want an out of date HP magazine no matter how slick it looks...

Automated is nice, set and forget.

So the key is in where to point the RSS feed?

Let me think on it for a bit and maybe we can get some fresher content for you. I like the webOS news stories well enough, but I've usually read them here by the time I see them on the Pivot.

I just combinend the webos nation and a twitter search to one feed: pivot, if it worked you will now see tweets with "#webos" in the AppCatalog (my Touchpad is not here at the moment :/)

The possibilities with feedkiller.com are endless, so combine what you want

Go to tweaks, open system, paste this link in feed url: http: // pivot.pattyland.de / (without spaces) and do a Luna restart.

I love this idea. Pivot was very cool when it was going. Does anyone know if old versions of pivot are accessible any where? I hope onTap is still on tap...
