    Not sure if anyone else has already posted this (I don't have the time to read through the 24 pages) but it is easy to write a script file to do step four of the initial post:

    STEP FOUR: Disconnecting everything

    Once you have your new homebrew apps working, you will want to safely disconnect your Pre and return it to its original state.

    A. First, to disconnect your Pre, you cannot use the “Safely Remove Hardware” option on the task bar, at least not yet, because you will receive an error message that your “Novacom Device” is being accessed by another program. Not to worry, though, as all you need do is end the service by doing the following on your PC:

    Click START - Run
    Type “Services.msc” and hit enter

    At this point a large list of programs will appear. Scroll through until you find the following: Palm Novacom

    Now simply right-click on the above file and stop the process. You can now safely remove the “Novacom Device” by clicking on the “Safely Remove Hardware” button on your task bar, and disconnect your Pre from your computer. You will want to restart the Palm Novacom process by right-clicking it again, so that you can install new homebrew apps in the future.
    Create a two text files. In one have the exact text:

    NET START "Palm Novacom"

    In the other have the exact text:

    NET STOP "Palm Novacom"

    Change the extension of these text files from .txt to .bat

    Now double clicking on these will start or stop the Palm Novacom service. I tested it, and it works.

    For those that are lazy I'm attaching my .bat files in a zip archive.

    HI frza,

    Extract the zip to a folder and then run Setup.vbs. One of the guys on the post install thread had this issue and that helped.

    Thanks

    Hi CtrlAltDelete,

    Try the following. Right click on the IPK file and select properties. You should have an unlock or unblock button. Click that then try again

    Hi guys,

    If you have any issues with PreBrew please read http://forums.precentral.net/web-os-...method-20.html and post your issues.

    This thread solves many of your issues etc and if you have a new one post it there so I can look at it.

    Thanks

    this is frustrating. I have followed this guide to the T. When i click and drag the ipk file into palm-install the dos window pops up and disapears but no app. Ive also used the PreBrew program the exact way it says and it even says complete and that its on my pre now, but nothing... Any ideas??
  6. #486  
    When i dropped the IPK files into the install thing i got a black popup with codes and stuff for a few seconds. Does that mean i got the app?

    where is it on my phone now i cant seem to find it?
  7. #487  
    Scratch that i took it out and redid it and now its working!

    thanks guys

    btw, in window vista (may work for other windows versions), if you associate the ipk file to the install.bat file, all you have to do is double click on it after you have the phone in dev mode and the file will install.

    Look all you have to do is go to the sdk folder. where your emulator is in and the palm-install.bat file is. DONT click on the icon that looks like a palm pre. click on the icon that looks like a gear that says palm emulator and click on that to get the emulator running. Ive been tryin to get it runnin for the past 3 days nowe and i finally got it running. try that and if nothin works then i dont kno what to tell u.

    Thank you very much for all this information. Do you think that in the future someone can come up with something that can allow you to delete multiple e-mails at once with out having to do one at a time?

    Exact thing with mine. Ran a JAVA VIRTUAL MACHINE test on the JAVA website and the exact same error message came up as the PreBrew error message. If this happens with a test from JAVA, then it must be a JAVA problem...but what?????

    I uninstalled and re-installed a ton, but why wont it work. Worked for 2 weeks and stopped yesterday. Do I have too many apps (67)?

    Please help!

    ok, can someone check if this install method works after you update to 1.1? everybody seems to be worried about their rooted pre, what about us non roots huh?
  20. #500  
    Just tried the palm-install it still works fine on 1.1.0.

    BTW rooting your Pre isn't as scary as it seems. Root comes enabled by default. All you have to do is type "novaterm" into terminal and you are in as root. The rest is just installing optional stuff once you are there
