    I will attempt this tonight, thanks. If it works I will update the how-to.

    Everything went flawless with me and I agree with msumike. Just stop the service and restart after you've disconnected the Pre. I love all my apps now.

    It does. Works like a charm cause I just did it. I added 11 homebrew apps.

    The same happens with me. Im on Windows 7 64 and the emulator doesn't open or anything. using the virtualbox 3.0.0, does this matter? should i download the older version?

    Same here, I verified that I'm in dev mode, and set to "just charge". Any help is appreciated guys.

    I got the following error when trying this today. Really not sure why. (My pre has been rooted, but still...)

    I haven't gotten wget to work with the Pre. In fact, when I'm in developer mode, I can't get any Internet access through it when it's connected to the USB port.

    Having said that, I have tested installing homebrew apps, and the following seems to work (in Linux):

    1) Get into Developer mode.
    2) Connect your Pre via USB.
    3) Run the novacom software.
    4) Mount "/media/internal" on the Pre: ("mount internal" when you're in the /media drive)
    5) Copy the ipk file to your Pre in Linux (outside of the novacom shell).
    6) Go into that directory in the novacom shell (e.g., "/media/internal") and run:

    ipkg install <ipk-install filename>

    7) Reboot your Pre.

    This seems to work fine.

    i cannot drag and drop the ipk files into the palm-install file on a mac.

    Mac Users i have figured out a way to install them. DO everything the guide says. when he says to drag and drop the .ipk files, do this instead. Search your mac for 'palm-install', when found double click on it, the terminal should pop up with brief instructions. Copy the first example from '#' to 'palm-install'. Close out of the terminal and open it up again from the utilities folder. paste the copied text, tap the spacebar to add a space, then go to your .ipk files and drag them into the terminal, then hit enter and there you go. Worked for me on my mac. Make sure your pre is on charge only.
