KNOWN ISSUES
=============================================

• Can't add to buddy list (Coming soon...)

How to login
================

Yahoo: username or email
MSN: email address
Jabber: email (e.g. user@jabber.org)
Sametime: username
Office Communicator: email
ICQ: ICQ number
IRC: username@server (e.g. username@irc.freenode.net)
Novell Groupwise: username@domain.com
Facebook: username@domain.com
Xfire: username

How to use IRC
==============

Its not pretty but it does give us more than we have now. I recommend wIRC from webos internals. Login to IRC. Hopefully it will connect and you will get an IRC window pop up. This window can be removed. Click new message/contact button (bottom left hand corner). Enter "/join #CHANNEL NAME" (E.g. /join #webos-internals). Then type anything in the message field and hit enter. IRC should now connect to the channel in a new window. The /join window can also now be closed.

HOW TO INSTALL
==============

Please note: There is three versions of "Messaging Plugins". One for Pre (armv7),

one for Pixi (Arm6) and one for the emulator (i686).
Please note: Preware and IPKG Service is required to install this patch.
Please note: WebOS Patch is required to install this patch. (Download link below)
Please note: This program should be uninstalled before performing a WebOS update.
Please note: Installation will take some time. Be patient.

Install using WebOS Quick Install (http://forums.precentral.net/homebre...k-install.html)

Thanks.

Doesn't facebook work with jabber/XMPP now and not need its own protocol, and thus not need its own IPK?

Facebook Chat Now Available Everywhere | Facebook

for those german guys.

iwas getting messages of error too.

what I did is remove all messaging patches, doctor the phone, and reinstalll.

first preware, then gnu patch, then follow greg steps to instal his files.

I hope this helps...
