I have also made a shell bash file to patch the LunaSysMgr.

I have tested it and it works well on my pre.

The Shell Script has the following options:
Code:
USAGE: VKB.sh OPTIONAL:[OPTIONS]

Use one of the following [OPTIONS]:

  -patch
     To patch LunaSysMgr

  -revert
     To remove the patch and revert the LunaSysMgr to the original status

  -status
     To show the status of the patch

  -help
     To show this help page!
If no argument was specified, then the shell uses an automatic mode: where the script determines whether the patch is applied or not and does the opposite activity.

All you have to do to try it out, send the script to your Pre and through webOS Quick Install Linux Commandline execute the script.

Don't forget to activate the Virtual Keyboard by using the "luna.conf.patch". I got that from Arthur Thornton. I also made a new one for Pre3.

Initial Discussion


Attachment 61808

As requested, screenshot:
Attachment 61875

v1.0: Attachment 61807
v1.1: Attachment 61911 (Adding webOS 2.2.0/2.2.3 for Pre3)

SO FAR:
The patch stablizes the VKB; however, when trying to change the screen orientation, Luna seems to crash. I am checking that later on.

Enjoy
Thank you very much for the good patch~
I'm a user of Pre3 AT&T~
When I test the patch I have found some BUGS~I want to tell you these,and hope you can update the patch to solve the problems listed as follows:
1/When I use the explorer to view some websites,I use the virtual key at the same time.But when I turn the screen from vertical to horizontal,the virtual key will broke down,and the pre3 will restart soon~
2/When the screen is horizontal,I can use the same method to call out the virtual key,but I found I can't use it,when I point the virtual key,it is useless,just like only to point the screen.
Thank you very much,and I hope you can solve these two problems in the nearly future.

Thank you for your feedback ...

Yup, these problems are known eversince I made the patch. I am trying to figure what makes Luna crash, but it is a bit harder without the source-code. I will post my progress in the initial discussion. You can see the link in the first post.

Very good work. However the VKB.sh script wonīt work on an European Pre3.
It says "Unknown version".

It would be great if you could include the European Pre3.

Thank you again~

What have you done?
Iīve installed the Pre3.patch. Then I sent the VKB.sh File to the Pre3 and run it, but it says "Version unknown". The keyboard appears, thats right, but after some keystrokes it hangs.

Which version of webOS are you using? which device (Unlocked, AT&T, or Verizon) are you using?

Can you do a simple SHA1 hash on the libWebKitLuna.so found in /usr/lib/libWebKitLuna.so and report that .. Also, it would be helpful if you can upload it and send the link to me so I can look at it

You really have a different libWebKitLuna.so ... I don't know why!

Can you give me your webOS Doctor link? I would like to extract the files and compare.

Also, do you know if you have installed any patch that would change the binaries of the libWebKitLuna.so?

I don't think there are any other binary patches available at the moment, definitely none in the standard or beta preware feeds since aupt-4 doesn't support them, so you'd have to have run a script like the one in this thread, which i presume you haven't? :P
That webOS doctor is the standard Unlocked Euro one, it matches the link on WebOS Internals' doctor versions page. Very curious indeed. Did you get your Pre3 direct from HP?

finally I figured out what it means : send the VKB.sh - file to "/" folder AND it works on a German QWERTY

but unfortunately stability is still as poor as without the VKB.sh -file, it often just freezes.
and debugging recomended? ...pls

Thatīs because the VKB.sh doesnīt work at all on a German Pre3, as I mentioned above , but Iīm sure that CvvB will work on that.

@ cipher - thanks, did not read that specifically
@ CvvB - and thanks for the work so far...of course waiting for an updated file, that stabilizes the German qwerty too ;-)
