    No, I have Switcharoo set to the same folder all the time. But after a Luna Restart or Device Reset, sometimes its background process needs to be restarted by opening the app.

    As sconix said, Switcharoo would need launch parameters for MS to be able to control it beyond simply opening and closing the card.

    Got it, thank you for the clarification
    My History of the last 10 years with Sprint! Palm Pre is by far the BEST!

    Is the inability to run it in the background a technical limit of webOS on the Pixi that would require a fix from Palm, or just something that you haven't had the hardware/time to figure out how to get it running?

    I will release the 1.0.0 tonight. It only has couple minor fixes that were reported and few small improvements for GPS trigger. It also has translation support so if someone is willing to translate MS then send me an email so I can send you the files.

    Thanks to everyone that have helped during the beta phase by donating, testing and reporting problems. Specially for the people behind the manual

    If bugs are reported I will do fixes and releases, but otherwise I take a small break from MS. The only feature that I might add quite soon is the extension for filemanager. Otherwise I will focus a bit for creating couple new patches for myself maybe they end up in Preware who knows.

I just meant that it cannot be set to lock or anything else. Only the always on or the default action that is display off after a while.

    You have to have the volume setting in some mode, maybe forgot the default mode? And yes when exiting MS the mode is reloaded even it has not been changed. This temporary so until I figure out a easy way to monitor changes to a mode (copying the whole setting structure and doing compare is not an option).
    Ok, I meant to say I wanted MS to pull up the LOCK screen whenever my Pre is plugged in via USB. If you are saying that is impossible, I will accept that. Yes, I CAN get MS to always keep the screen on when connected via USB.

    You were right about the forgetting the Default Mode. I removed all settings that I'm not adjusting and now no more volume icon! Thanks!

    Yes the lock screen is not possible at least I don't know how it can be done. Sorry if I am sometimes a bit unclear on my sayings

    I am posting this with the intent on drumming up some donations to Sconix for Mode Switcher hitting a stable 1.0.0 release and also for his wonderful well written patches that add even more functionality to webOS.

    We could all go on and on about how great Sconix and his app/patches are, so for those of us that know, here is to starting a Sconix Donationathon!

    Donate away everyone!

    I got into doing the manual because I'm too poor to give donations, but I put some unobtrusive ads on the MS manual website, and the majority of the proceeds will be going directly to sconix.

    So anyone who, like me, is too poor to donate should do their part by clicking some of the ads at Mode Switcher Manual

    Yeah, it's a thorny problem. We're still working out what the algorithm should be for all types of patch dependencies to update correctly, let alone then implementing that solution in code.

    Sconix -- CONGRATS on getting to 1.0. Your vision for this application has been inspiring and your talent for writing the code in what must be a terribly complex working environment is highly impressive (implying of course, both the WebOS environment and we, it's unruly masses...). The 1.0 release is genuinely amazing and more than I could have hoped for in a Profile management app (Profile / Mode management doesn't do it justice of course).

    Anyway, I was thinking a little ahead of Oakridge last night when I already sent you a "couple" of Euros as a token of my appreciation for your hard work on this (and your patches over the last several months.)

    Best wishes. I hope you take a few days off. Then again, once the rest of the 'masses' get their hands on this, you might be flooded with help requests... I know those of us who have been Beta testing for you will do our best to help out as much as we can.... Hopefully people RTFM!!!

    Sconix, thanx for 1.0. I love the modifier mode and I think I'm finally getting the hang of Mode Switcher. It worked flawlessly for a full day of events, gym, work, store, and home. It changed Modes when it needed to, and kept my hands free for other things. Thus, I donated today.Thanks again.
  13. #3313  
    Thanks Sconix. I will be making a donation as well.


    Got a question for you. Is there a way for MS to tell when there has been a Luna reset or reboot and possibly use that as a trigger to cause some modifier mode to open/close apps? (youview, weather now etc)
  14. #3314  
    when any mode is activated is there any way to make the dashboard disappear without opening and swiping it away and make the card disappear? is there a setting to enter a mode cleanly - the card goes background without swiping and the dashboard goes away without swiping?

    also...does anyone know of any patch conflicts with the "launch ms on reboot" patch? i am getting the following error:

    1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file etc/palm/luna.conf.rej

    Please see the troubleshooting section on the Mode Switcher Wiki.

    In short, yes, the Launch Brightness Unlinked on Luna Boot patch conflicts with the Launch Mode Switcher on Luna Boot patch.

    I have a touchstone mode that auto starts By Selection. When the popup shows, I only see black instead of buttons.

    I'm still playing around with MS until I learn how to use its potential, but I'm stuck:
    I'd like to have a toggle-function like
    - When Application X is started, turn on GPS
    - When Application X is closed, turn GPS off
    I was able to do the 1st half but the "turn off"-part gives me headaches.

    Is it possible? If yes, how can it be done?

    Kind of yes, if you set the default mode to be started always on startup and the set it to start MS application and tell it start or trigger or whatever any mode you wish. Maybe that is what you after.

    On Pixi no since it does not support background apps so you need the dashboard to be open for MS to work. For Pre just install start MS on luna start patch and no dashboard started/needed.
