Command failed with return value 2: 'wget --passive ftp -q -P /tmp/ipkg/ (blah blah blah) Perhaps you need to run 'ipkg update'?"

    What's up? Is there an update for the homebrew version? Is it possible to get 1.0.1 working again?

    Or, just click on the link with Preware installed, remove everything after ".ipk" and install it without need of a pc.

    I tried it on a Pre 3 and it wasn't the best experience so I had to remove it. I didnt bother editing the index file for full screen as there were more important quirks. Is it 2.x compatible?

    There is also an iSilo version of the Factbook but the iSilo app on web OS is itself far from a decent experience.
