Since for the next 2 hours I am at my computer and if there still is some serious bug in the packages I can remove them from the feed. I tested them on my phone and in emulator, but still you never can be sure when it works only for yourself.

    Was not aware of that thread so thanks. The whole reason for the first version not working was that I forgot to add the actual menu files for the patch. Did not know that the WebOS takes it that badly that if they are missing, but now I know so will be more careful in the future.

    Sconix,

    Is it still this feed: 'http://wee.e-lnx.org/webos/feeds/stable' Compressed ON? I do not see any updates. The ones that are there fail to install.

    Thanks,

    Thanks,
    Yes that is still the my feed. If you are talking about the patches they are now also in the WebOS internals feed. If they fail to install then you have some conflicting patch installed. There are not many but at least one or two.

    It most likely conflicts with some patch that you have installed. If you can tell where it fails from the ipkg log I might be able to say that what patch is the culprit.

    indeed i do. concentrating too hard on top bar patches to see that; should'a paid closer attention.
    thanks.

    a couple of questions if ya have the time or for later:
    -does 'parameters' do anything other than store a URL for the web app?
    -could a specific bluetooth device be made a trigger (e.g. to trigger a car TS charge mode when linked to the carkit- to make it different from home TS charge trigger)

    hope you're feeling better.

    Well the parameters can be anything that the apps support. Unfortunately there is no list of supported parameters by the applications which means that you have to dig into applications source to see what it supports.

    Yes bluetooth triggers is on the todo list. It should be possible to trigger mode change when certain bluetooth device is connected etc. At least triggers that are in my interest and will most likely do at some point are: battery level, wifi connection, bluetooth device connection, headphones plugging, shaking, phone orientation, mode closing (would make possible to chain the modes), calendar events. And there are more than those So you can see that there can be many different kind of triggers, this is the reason why I am converting the triggers into extensions so they can be more easily implemented and even left out of the application if no use. Also hoping that someone would get interest and develop some of those triggers since there are quite a lot work

    For example I could use the orientation to separate night mode from car mode since the phone is in different orientation when on car touchstone than on my night stand... and maybe the shaking trigger combined with headphones trigger would work as starting music playback when going to jogging who knows Lots of things to try

    sconix,

    I was able to install all of the patches from the WebOS-internals feed without problems after uninstalling a couple that I thought maight be conflicting. I reinstalled those later without a problem. However, the patches from your feed crashed on installation. I uninstalled those from your feed that I had and reinstalled from the WOS-Internals. Everything seems to be working just fine, including my GPS triggers. I'll test my timer switches later.

    Thanks for all your work, especially with your thesis and your illness! MS is definitely one of the very top must-have apps for the Pre. I am so looking forward to see it continue to improve. Amazing!

    hi hilm 3.
    do u have the top bar today patch installed and running?
  13. #1053  
    It would be very cool to be able to use triggers to send parameters to the CPU scaling app. In the car I use that app to take the CPU down from 800 to 500 MHz so the streaming audio, GPS, etc., apps I like to run in the car don't overheat the phone.

    After having no success with the Today patch yesterday, I just updated with the new patch on Preware today and....IT WORKS!! The Today patch is very very convenient to see your upcoming calendar events.

    Would love to see the ability to see more than just current day and tomorrow...how about up to 3 days?? And scrim ability to change the color of the dropdown?

    Great stuff...great patch.

    Can you please add the voice network in the options - "Home Network / Automatic / Roam Only" ?

    I dont have very good Sprint signal at home, so I mostly keep it in 'roam only' when I am at home.
    At work, I leave it as 'Automatic'.

    If these could be integrated in the mode options...it would help me a great deal.

    TIA.

    I have a number of top bar patches installed....date, battery %, and larger font. No problems with the Today patch for me...very slick patch. Just touching center of the top bar drops down a quick look at your events for the day, with an optional button to see tomorrow's events.

    Would like to see option to see few more days of events, scrim colors, smaller font?

    I put a great deal of work to trying to made the patch in a way that it installs with many of the patches so glad to here that it allows lots of other patches without conflicting.

    At some point I will update the patches and let see what nice things I will add Firt have to get the release of MS into the Preware feed with couple new features and the major rework of the code that is ready today.
