    heres what he wants.. no wosqi, but works bon 1.3.1 perfect unless jason or someone adds it..

    AGAIN: To be Clear; There is NO CURRENT WAY to get this app to work correctly without rooting!

    You can install the app itself, but the LED will NOT light up unless you install the DBUS service jar running as root from a command line!

    The IPK is therefore useless! Do not even bother with it, as it will do absolutely nothing.

    Note: All the "type:" instructions below mean to type everything as seen between the quotes, not including the quotes, then hit enter.

    Again; here are the working instructions:
    1. ROOT your Pre. Portal:Accessing Linux - WebOS Internals
    2. Login to your Pre using your favorite terminal.
    3. Make sure you are running as root (type: "su - or sudo -i")
    4. cd to root (type: "cd /")
    5. Make sure the filesystem is RW (type: "rootfs_open -t")
    6. Get the flashlight tar. (type: "wget http://************/flashlight.tar")
    7. Untar it. (type: "tar -xvf flashlight.tar")
    8. now reboot and logout. (type: "reboot", then "exit", then "exit")

    When your Pre comes back up, the flashlight should work if you have done everything correctly.

    It didn't break for me - I've had it installed since I Doctored onto 1.2 originally, went through both 1.2.1 and 1.3.1 with no troubles from my flashlight. In fact, I just used it last night, and it worked perfectly.

    OP you do know that there are TWO ipks that need to be installed via WebOS QI, correct? In your statement, you referenced one ipk and not the two that are required?

    Mine works fine and I've used the TWO ipks from Pregame. Worked since 1.1.0 and continues to work in 1.3.1.

    Mine works fine without rooting, installed fresh on 1.3.1.

    Theres two ipk's, prelease and ledflashlight, install prelease first, then the second, both in WOSQI, and done.

    Try installing the two IPKs. Do a search for "My Flashlight" in this forum (the two ipks are in that thread) or find them in WebOS QI and look for two ipks from Pregame. You'll need the following two ipks:

    com.pregame.prelease.ipk
    com.pregame.app.flashlight_0.0.1_all.ipk

    I don’t know if anyone has mentioned this, but I previously had my phone rooted before I "reinstalled" my webOS but was too lazy to do it again since not many apps need it now days. Anyway there is an easier way to install this flashlight app!!! (W/ 1.31)

    1. Use quick install
    2. Click tools > Linux command line
    Then follow the last few steps as mentioned above
    3. Get the flashlight tar. (type: "wget http://lunaware.com/flashlight.tar")
    4. Untar it. (type: "tar -xvf flashlight.tar")
    5. Now reboot and logout. (type: "reboot", then "exit", then "exit")

    I was unable to get this working on the Pixi. It might it a specific app.

    True, I have it running on my pre, but tried it on my daughter's pixi, and it does not work... (and I can't uninstall it either)...

    THAT FILE CONTAINS A SERIOUS SERCURITY VULNERABILITY. DO NOT INSTALL IT.

    If anyone knows how to contact lunaware.com and get that file removed, please let me know.
