    This couldn't have been the first error you got after a doctor. The calculated md5sum indicates that the framework files is currently patched with the keyboard.

    I'm going to guess that the first time you tried to install it you got a rare error about remounting (which is something we need to track down although it is difficult to reproduce and only been reported in rare circumstances). In this situation the patch was applied, then the remount read-only failed. If you then tried to install again before restartin/updating feeds in preware you'll get this error message and the post-install script will remove the ipk.

    This can be solved via linux commands. Get access to a terminal and do the following:

    Code:
    ipkg -o /var install org.webosinternals.virtual-keyboard

    This should install the keyboard without running the post-installation script. You should then be able to restart preware and see the keyboard as installed. This will allow you to uninstall if you choose, but it should be functional.

    Is there an effort underway to get the keyboard to resize the scene instead of overlaying and/or auto correct working?

    If both of those happen, this thing is going to be killer. Hell, you guys would have done all the work for Palm to make a full touch screen phone on WebOS.

    Under the hood of installing advanced homebrew is to do the ipkg -o /var install command and then run the post-install script. The post-install script for they keyboard will fail and then run an ipkg -o /var remove command if the md5sums are mismatched. So it removes itself when the script encounters an error basically.

    Simple homebrew (mojo applications) do not have post-install or pre-remove scripts and thus just need this ipkg -o /var install command. This install command basically unpacks/extracts the ipk and sets up the control information that allows the package to be seen as installed. So by doing it on the command line as I had you do, the postinst script was not run. You would have to do that manually on the command line, in which case you would have seen the same error and the package would have been removed.

    I don't recommend doing these commands manually in the future unless instructed by an experienced dev. This worked in this specific case because a previous run of the postinst script completed successfully but a remount error caused the install to "stop" in preware. A second install attempt ran the postinst script against patched files (thus failing md5sum check) causing it to fail. The script then removed the package control data because of the failure, but the original install attempt already patched the files. Thus this workaround was to simply get the ipkg control data back to the "installed" state.

    A phone reboot should help get rid of the remount errors if you are getting them constantly right now. If you get the remount error during install, restart preware and see if it actually did install. If you get the remount error during removal, the files will probably be unpatched but the ipkg data will remain saying it is installed.

    We'd have to do more digging/debugging to verify the exact state of the files. As long as you don't do anything with regards to manually editting the files, we should be able to get you out of any sticky situation you get into with patch errors. Join us in #webos-internals IRC channel on freenode.net for easier debugging.

    The on-screen keyboard is rather useless once you get used to using the phone.

    why would you bash this, many people including myself wanted this very much and emoney spent ALOT of time on this, so if you think it is not useful, keep it to yourself and enjoy all of the other apps and patches that have been developed...

    WOSQI doesn't have an option to install, only configure. Let me double check.

    yea, I don't see it...

    I am gonna use the PreWare....

    edit: I stand corrected...it was under the webOS internals (all) feed. I was looking under tweaks
