    I am having some serious problems finding feed information for kernel testing. I have looked everywhere I know where to look, from webos-internals.org to searching on the forum. I have spent hours trying to get this added and have been unable to find much information.

    I was able to find Testing Feeds - WebOS Internals But I was unable to get kernels from this information.

    Can someone just point me into the right direction? I am really getting tired of the hours of looking.

    I have a extra pre that I would love to use for testing (family member left pre and bought another phone)

    agh.. I even tried http://ipkg.preware.org/feeds/webos-kernels/1.4.1.1/ found by searching around through ipkg.preware.org/feeds . Please someone help me out here I would really like to get some kernel testing on my extra pre. I really appreciate any help, I just cant keep up the search much longer.

    First some rules:

    Anyone participating in WebOS Internals alpha testing of any kind must be prepared to fully erase and webOS Doctor their phone at a moment's notice without warning and without any regrets or complaints.

    They must be prepared to and able to log into the command line on the device and type Linux commands when instructed to do so. Knowing Linux commands ahead of time is preferred, but not required if you are willing to learn them when necessary or can follow instructions without making mistakes.

    They must be prepared to go to great and extraordinary lengths to try and reliably reproduce any problems they encounter.

    They must give full and detailed bug reports, leaving out no piece of information which could possibly be remotely connected to the problem.

    They must read any and all documentation and forums threads (in their entirety) before asking a question.

    They must fastidiously follow the forum threads where the alpha testing is being discussed by the authors, and follow precisely any instructions given there.

    If you're not prepared to do *all* the above, and do it all in good spirit, then please wait for the public release of the item.

    If you are prepared to do *all* the above, then by all means please participate in the alpha testing.

    Note that everything above is a function of attitude, not of skill.


    If you agree to the above rules, feel free to follow these instructions:

    1) Type 'webos-kernels-testing' (without the quotes, and using lower case letters and hyphens only) in the NAME field of the NEW FEED section of the Manage Feeds screen accessible from the Preware application menu.

    2) Put http://preware.is.awesome.com/ in the URL field.

    3) Leave the IS COMPRESSED toggle as is.

    3) Hit "Add Feed" and read the disclaimer carefully. Yes, the things you might find in kernel testing feeds are likely to completely wipe your device without warning. Hit the Ok button only if you are prepared to lose all your data and destroy your device without any regrets or complaints.

    4) Immediately reboot the device by simultaneously pressing the Opt, Sym and R keys.

    5) Wait for the device to boot.

    6) Open Preware, and hit Update Feeds. Make sure you have a working network connection for this.

    Preware will repair the URL field automatically when the device boots.

    You must be running Preware 1.1.4 or later for this to work (yes, this has been possible for quite some time).

    What's the best route to take when Preware does not automatically repair the url after device boot (long update feed error message post reboot)? The feed shows under manage feeds, though no hits. I've tried multiple times. Thanks to all you guys for what you do; I don't post much but I immensely appreciate all of your invaluable information. This phone and webos is plainly awesome.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Swipe to delete the erroneous feed, then follow the instructions in my post more precisely.

    Thank you very much for this, I have been searching the forums for weeks to try to gain access. I am a new pre member and love it more than any phone I have ever owned in my life, and I have had a vast array of phones. I am trying to take courses so I can start developing apps and themes for web os. Thank you very much.

    Thanks OP for the thread and thanks Rod for the answers. I was in the exact same boat. After adding the testing feed from the webos internals page I was still unable to find the kernels feed. This worked perfect. Thanks!

    I've added the above to the Wiki Page for Testing Feeds. Please let me know if it's OK. I sort of re-styled the whole page to make it (I think...) a little easier to follow all the stuff.

    Nice one. You almost had me thinking that was a real question from an alpha tester ...

    You can use http://thePretender.did.not.get.the.joke/ instead if you like.

    As it says later, Preware fixes the URL on the next boot as long as the feed name is correct.
