    Yes, yes, I know it's generally best to have 1 patch per release thread, but in this case, these 3 patches are nearly identical.



    Basically, webOS 1.4 changed the way the camera works. The old photo naming patches no longer work. Now, filenaming and album creating is done via the camera linux daemon, which is not patchable.

    However, Palm does allow developers to specify filenames, and using that, I was able to set a custom filename format for photos.

    So these are the 3 patches and their filename formats:
    1. improved-cimg-photo-naming.patch = CIMG_YYYY-MM-DD-hhmmss.jpg
    2. improved-pre-photo-naming.patch = PRE_YYYY-MM-DD-hhmmss.jpg
    3. improved-pixi-photo-naming.patch = PIXI_YYYY-MM-DD-hhmmss.jpg


    All images will be saved to the /DCIM/100PALM/ folder

    Keep in mind, I was unable to set a custom name for videos, which will remain in their usual CIMGxxxxx.mp4 format (which is why I personally prefer the 1st of the 3 patches).


    Oh, and obviously, only install one of these patches, heh.

    Thanks.

    No sense being pessimistic, it probably wouldn't work anyway

    Hi Jason,
    Iīm seeing disappearing videos from the video app, after shooting some random videos my older clips have been overwritten apparently. Do you think your name patch will fix this problem? Canīt seem to find other people having this strange issue.

    Edit, my bad, I read again, seeing this concerns photos only. Maybe any other idea what causes this strange behaviour?

    so the older patch thats is in preware is pretty much useless?

    honestly, no idea what might be causing that.

    AUPT Place-holder inserted until new version is available, so I'll remove it now from my Pre.

    if WOSQI is unable to download the postinst/prerm scripts, then the patch can't be applied. It'll create the package on the device which can be uninstalled.

    Thanks for the update.

    I'll be holding off on installing until Preware has these, but I'm certainly looking forward to it!

    Hey Jason, is there an easy way to have the original implementation where the file numbering stayed the simple 0001, 0002, etc, but the prefix is changed? I tried using some of the original camera-control.jsjsjs $code$ $in$ $the$ $new$ $location$ $where$ $you$ $defined$ $your$ $code$, $basically$ $I$ $put$ $this$ $in$ $instead$ $of$ $all$ $your$ $date$ $calculations$:
    var imgNum = this.prefs[CameraControl.PREFS.COUNT];

    var imgNumStr = "000"+imgNum;

    imgNumStr = imgNumStr.substring(imgNumStr.length-4);
    cam.imageDestination = "/media/internal/DCIM/100PALM/" +
    "PRE" + imgNumStr + ".jpg";
    but it appears that the count preference is no longer defined, I guess since the camera daemon is now handling things. So is there anyway to just change the prefix but keep the number, I'm not a fan of the time stamp file names.

    Thanks

    Unfortunately, not as far as I know. The Prefix in the json doesn't even do anything anymore either

    The "cimg" version of the patch doesn't work for me. I have a Verizon Pre Plus w/ 1.4.
    Anyone else got it working on a Vz PPP?

    Using WOSQI, I verified that the edits in this patch were not applied. I copied the file onto my PC, edited the file to include the lines from the patch, and then copied it back to the Pre. Now I get the improved file names.
    Any idea on why the patch wouldn't be applied? I didn't get any error message.

    do you not have an active internet connection? The postinst/prerm scripts get downloaded directly from webos-internals' git and are what apply the patch. If they failed to download, then the patch would've installed, but not been applied.

    I'll have to give it a try when I get home. At work, coverage is spotty, so that may be the issue.
    Thanks!

    After thinking about this some more, did you mean: active internet connection from my windows PC, not from the Pre?
    The answer is yes, my PC has an internet connection. I didn't have a chance to try the patch from home last night. Hopefully, tonight.
