    A bug in AUPT is causing all packages to believe they have been changed by an OTA and thus remove the package data without actually unapplying the patch. The fix is in the works and will be released as soon as possible, but in the mean time hold off on removing any patches, since the control data for EPR will be removed as well.

    I will then also create an emergency file verification package to allow a quick verification that all modified files are either correctly installed with latest aupt technology or log which files are modified without the latest fixed technology.

    I apologize for the inconvenience.

    UPDATE

    The patches have all been updated in the webos-patches feed (not version bumped)

    Any patch that you have installed using aupt-2, remove and reinstall.

    Any patch that you installed in the last last 3 days and since removed probably didn't uninstall from the OS. reinstall those and then remove.

    View the .webosinternals.patches.packages file from USB mode to see which patches were installed with aupt-2 if any.

    Thank you. I noticed this saturday after doctoring my phone. I reinstalled all my homebrew then I tried to remove a patch, showed uninstalled but the patch was truly there. I was able to reinstall the patch without issue but it still wouldn't uninstall every time I tried. I finally reinstalled the patch and left it.

    Thanks for the update, I really enjoy my installed patches and don't want to remove them.

    Thanks. I was going to back a couple of my recently installed patches out, but now I will wait.

    You should be able to re-install them without issue, or you can wait for the verification package. I will make sure to have a verification package out that you can run to see if there are any leftover modified files from patches you removed in the past. I'm debating on recovering these files automatically as well.

    I decided to uninstall preware and all patches from my wife's Pixi using EPR and the freaking LED notification still works....what do I need to do to get rid of it? Do I reinstall preware with patches and wait for the update or what...thanks

    Well apparently this problem only arises in aupt-2 (not aupt-1) in which the logic was re-ordered to check for OTA first. aupt-1 removal should be fine. So any patch installed prior to 2/12 should be OK to remove.

    That's actually a separate issue - just reinstall the patch, go into your Screen & Lock options and turn the LED notifications off. Then uninstall the patch again.

    So just to be clear. I installed all my patches on the 13th, I ran into the described issue, I then reinstalled the patch, all is well as long as I don't try to uninstall anything.

    So am I still safe to update if 1.4 drops today or should I wait for the fix? Will this fix come via preware or how will "the fix" actually be applied?

    I found that the easy way to clear up everything and get a fresh start was to run Webos Doctor. When it was done (about 15 Minutes). Signed into my palm profile and Poof...a clean slate. All patches were gone, all Apps reinstalled, and phone running great. Reinstalled Package manager and Preware...went and got my patches...ALL IS GOOD! Now..where the heck is 1.4?????????

    this may be a stupid question, but how do I know if I installed a patch prior to 2/12? I add and remove patches all the time, so I'm not sure when it may have been done... But still thanks for the heads up.

    If you look in /media/internal/ there is a text document called webos-patches which is a log of all your patch activity. You can see here on which date your patch was installed/uninstalled.

    Just connect your device to your computer via USB - the root directory you see here is /media/internal/ - you don't need to hack your device for this, just plug it in

    ok, so went through the log and the last thing i installed was on 2/9. does this mean uninstall all patches before the update, wait and use this "patch," or just go ahead and update to 1.4? thanks for the help

    You are fine, you don't have to do anything as long as you don't install any new patches until aupt-3 versions are built.
