Does anyone have an idea what may be the problem?

Thanks!
Hmm... You might not have the required or updated root certificate HP's servers use. You'll have to somehow obtain and install the root certificate used by their servers. What browser do you use? (I'll try to give you instructions on how to extract the certificates.) BTW, see this: linux - c# - "The authentication or decryption has failed." error while using twitterizer in mono - Stack Overflow

I read about IMEI on Wikipedia this morning and saw that there are two variants: IMEI-14 and IMEI-16. I bet Impostah only shows IMEI-14. (IMEI-16 is the new version.)

I suppose it's very different between Windows and Ubuntu, but go to https://ps.palmws.com, and click the green lock icon beside the URL. Click on Certificate Information and it should open up the certificate in your certificate manager, and from there you should be able to choose to install the certificate to your system.

The profile servers only use the first 14 digits.

HP webOS App Catalog Country Changer

This program allows you to change the country your webOS Account is associated to, so that you can buy paid apps if you have a credit card from a supported country. 'Nuff said. A readme is enclosed, so make sure you read that, thoroughly so you won't be at a loss if you get hit by a server error.

See download in the attachments section.

If you like the program and would like to donate, please donate to the Homebrew Pivot project. (See donate button on the thread's OP.)

Requirements
The program require .NET Framework 3.5, so for you Mac and Linux users, you'll need to run it with Mono. Sorry.

Features
  • Allows you to change the App Catalog country
  • Shows complete information about each country as provided by HP's servers

Changelog
v1.0.0.0 - June 17, 2012
- Initial release
Great app, I've donated it, thank you, it helped a lot!

Hi, thanks for the help.
I went to the site, pressed the green lock and chose the Export option. It created a file with the certificate (*.palmws.com). I followed the instruction in this site: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Op...20Certificates (near the end "Importing a Certificate into the System-Wide Certificate Authority Database") but after all this I still get the same error message.
Some of the times I tried to run the program, I got the following message in the terminal:
"Could not set X locale modifiers".

Anyone with Linux had any luck with the program?

Awesome app! Wish I had found this before I wiped and reinstalled my veer and tried a whole bunch of stuff that didn't work. Now I can actually pay for apps!

I did get it to work on a regular windows (XP) desktop tho.

The HP Veer does not come with App Catalog in US? I am not seeing pandora, and the instructions to set this up are very complicated to me (not a huge techie)

If your country shows up as AT, that may mean you haven't activated your Palm Profile yet. In any case, the setup isn't really that complicated. Go with the method you think is the easiest. Ask questions if you don't understand.

How would I even find where the country set for the app market is at?
