    So, I'm following this guide

    pre dev wiki: Installing Homebrew Apps on Stock Pre without Rooting
    to make sure I have my app packaged up correctly & I'm able to do everything except this step:

    Code:
    tarball your entire app directory into data.tar.gz with the P flag to get absolute paths with a leading /. Not all distros have P flag in tar. You may need to get/use gnutar.
    tar cvPzf data.tar.gz /usr/palm/applications/(your application folder)
    I get this error in Terminal on my mac
    Code:
    tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors


    I'm able to create a package by modifying the data.tar.gz in BetterZip on my mac & just replacing the "com.simplyflipflops" folder with my "com.jackintheboxsoftwareinc.app.googleos" but then the when I enter

    Code:
    tar tzvf data.tar.gz
    the root folder shows up as "usr/", not "/usr/" as it should be. Any other Mac users having this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    What I do is tar it on the actual phone then copy it off. Works everytime for me that way.

    I don't actually have a Pre. I'm testing all of my dev work on the Emulator. Wait, do you SSH into the phone & then copy it off? Hrm, I'm wondering if that could somehow work
