    Is there a way to install multiple patches at once like in a queue? I was thinking similar to the way you download homebrew apps in WebOSQuickInstall, it downloads all the packages then you click install and it goes through the queue and installs them.

    This would really be handy so you don't have to click a single patch.... wait 30 seconds... click the next patch... wait, etc. I know you can look at a big list of patches in the online repository section of tweaks but you can't install them all at once.

    Does anyone know of an existing way to do this? If not, it'd be a great feature to develop.

    If you install via webosqi you can load up the patches and install at once. With the latest os update I would make sure they work with the device first though.

    well, if you have .patch files, you can do bulk installs, like with ipks in WOSQi
    If you've liked my software, please consider to towards future development.

    Developer of many apps such as: WebOS Quick Install, WebOS Theme Builder, Ipk Packager, Unified Diff Creator, Internalz Pro, ComicShelf HD, LED Torch, over 70 patches and more.

    Jason something I've wondered lately are .patch files installed vis WebosQI Aupt or just normal?

    Basically, what WebO Quick Install does when it installs a .patch is this:
    1. Transfers patch to device
    2. Creates an artificial ipkg entry for the patch's package
    3. Downloads the current postinst/prerm AUPT scripts from WebOS-Internals' git repository directly to the device. Scripts will downoladed will always be the most current ones
    4. Runs the AUPT postinst script


    So normal AUPT format that WebOS-Internals uses in their patch packages

    Interesting solution. Why not, then, just make the patches themselves ipkg files and use ipkg to manage them directly?

    Awesome... wasn't concerned but was curious been messing with some .patch files and started to wonder how one would make a AUPT patch if it was down in the background..

    Thanks...
