    Type WebOSQuickInstall in the search. You need that first.

    You have to do it from your PC. Once you have QuickInstall on your computer you will then need to put your pre in "Developer Mode" before the program will recognize your phone.

    But last time I knew, people were having troubles with QuickInstall after the 1.2 update. I'm honestly not sure if QuickInstall has been updated to work with 1.2. I do know I read about people messing their Pre's up after trying to install tweaks onto their Pre after the update.

    I would advise that just to be 100% safe. But there are folks who have used the current version of QuickInstall with no issues. But I dont believe many people have used the current version of QI to apply tweaks. I believe that is where the issues come into play. So if you are wanting to install the Virtual Keyboard...I would advise waiting.

    People were able to get Preware on their phones with no issues though. And I'm pretty sure you can install the Virtual Keyboard through Preware and the VK has been updated to work with 1.2.

    I would just advise limited use with QI until its officially updated to work with 1.2.

    Is anyone having difficulty removing the virtual keyboard. I want to install the updated os, however, they suggest you remove the virtual keyboard patch first. When I attempt to remove it via preware I get this message "Error Removing (4)". Any suggestions?

    I wasnt able to remove the virtual keyboard at all. I finally went ahead and risked installing 1.2. I havent had a single issue. The keyboard no longer works but the phone itself and every other feature works just fine.

    Not advising you to try that as well...but it worked for me.

    I think you have to remove the keyboard using the same means you used to install it. So if you installed it via Preware you remove it via Preware...if you used QI then you must use that to uninstall it.

    Preware is an application for your phone.

    Quick Install is on your computer.

    Both can be used to install applications onto you Pre. But in order to get Preware you must use QuickInstall.

    ok so at least for now i cant get either. Since i cant get QI because of 1.2. Any idea as to when it will be updated? I know 1.2 like just came out

    error is:

    ipkg log

    removing package org.webosinsnternals.virtual-keyboard from root...
    (offline root mode: not running org.webosinsnternals.virtual-keyboard.perm)

    Note, Preware does not give uninstall option, only install.. I assume I messed up by not uninstalling it properly, because i just deleted the usb folder like you said in one of your previous posts..

    what should i do?
    I have the same issue, except i downloaded it from Preware, wouldnt work, so i uninstalled using preware. Used the WebOS Internals Method using Putty and got the same error.

    I am trying to install the virtual keyboard on my pre but the download option is greyed out on preware after the program update.

    does the phone need to be rooted to use the virtual keyboard?

    How did you install the keyboard I meant, what commands did you run from the command line.
