    Well, yes, but that would be the hard way!

    This is /usr/bin/UpdateDaemon. And read below

    Yes, spot on! I'll expand on this soon, maybe in a different thread to keep this one clean.

    I had an awfully busy week, so no real progress on my 1.4.5 Pixi. What I'll do, hopefully this week-end, is implement the OTA-like update on 2.x/3.x devices so it can be alpha-tested (thus actively excluding 1.x, which will come later).

    I know you're having issues with the OTA update process on the Pixi, but in case nobody else has confirmed it, the OpenSSL update package did work on my Verizon Pixi+ running 1.4.5. I think I had to install it twice, but that isn't unique to this device.

    I actually didn't have any cents installed, it was freshly doctored. I seem to remember the phone rebooting after install on its own.

    When it booted back up, I got the yellow triangle. So I used your handy cert grabber and all is well now.

    I think I too will stick with cert grabber for now.....

    There is (now) no question the "new" OpenSSL binaries work on all webOS versions, it's all about the installation process (which shall succeed on the first run, twice install is no good either).

    And whatever the webOS version, the current installation/removal process is flawed, as there is a race issue that will leave most of the people in a very bad condition if it ever happens (the race is just between the deletion and the installation of each shared library file, I can elaborate if needed).

    So unless someone comes with a way to perform an atomic "mv" on a bunch of files, OTA-like update is the only (safe by construction) way I can see.

    mmm interesting problem.

    Am I assuming right, saying that the OTA shuts down a whole bunch of services and then restarts them after the update ?
  6. #86  
    OTA most likely reboots into an installer mode that runs before any other services start up.

    Many many thanks for the dev of this great app! Installed it on my Pre 3 and now it can successfully connect to my office's WiFi (SHA256). Of course I followed the recommendations about putting my Pre 3 in airplane mode. Just for everybody to know, the installation of the app is very fast, I thought it was going to take longer since I read it changes a lot of files (similar to when you install uberkernel or some large patch).

    Thanks Thaibaud and the webos internals team. My Touchpad is now once again very usable for web browsing. Well browsing without asking to trust the ssl of every advertiser on the Web. Great work! Thanks ☺

    Is the openssl updater still in Alpha test? Thx

    It's just a label. It works fine. I've installed it on 4 webOS devices ranging from 1.x, 2.x, and 3.x. All went great.

    The page with instructions for enabling alpha feeds is redirecting so i can't read them. So without these instructions, i can't install the updater on my Tpad.

    ***
    EDIT: i was easily able to manually add the two necessary alpha feeds (ipkg.preware.net/alpha/apps/all and ipkg.preware.net/alpha/apps/armv7 *no "http://"*) that i saw listed in Preware on my phone which already had them active. I named them alpha1 and 2 then cycled Preware. App was then available and installed successfully.

    Should these steps be added to this thread in the first post to help simplify installations?

    The link in the first post of this thread is the correct one (though the mobile version of the page does not seem to work right). http://en.webos-internals.org/wiki/Testing_Feeds

    It is also possible to browse the feeds on your PC browser and download the ipk. That is how I installed it initially.

    I installed, following the procedure, the icon openssl update but I still have the yellow triangle ... what I did wrong?

    You might need frantid's root certificate bundle...?

    I think you might have to delete manually downloaded certificates first, but check the thread:
    root cert updater app

    It works ok but I must also eliminate the two certificates "Google Internet Authority G2" and "geo trust global CA" ??????? I did not.

    Those have never been needed anyway.

    I'm not able to uninstall Open-SSL updater on my Pre 2. I installed via preware and when I remove in preware, it reboots, but still appears to be installed in preware.

    When I try to uninstall command in nova term, I get:

    Code:
    palm-install -r org.webosinternals.openssl-updater
    /bin/sh: palm-install: not found
    Finally, when I try uninstalling in WOSQI, I get the attached error message.

    I'm trying to uninstall, in order to reinstall to see if I can get rid of the constant trust certificate messages while browsing.

    I tried to uninstall on device

    Tapping the icon while holding the white button

    After restart, icon is still there

    Tried to uninstall from Preware

    Sane story, but while doing so, preware should a message that the original openssl was restored

    This is true, I can no longer receive send emails

    So I have taken the IPK from my computer and was able to install it with Preware.

    So email is back.

    This was on a Pre3 running 224

    That is good news you got email working again :-)

    Where did you get the ipk for openssl-updater? I only know of installation by preware via alpha feed. Also, how did you install the ipk using preware? I would think this would be done via WOSQI.
