Here we go again: the goal is to change App Catalog's country, and this time with an on-device solution. I've made a patch that uses some existing App Catalog infrastructure to gain access to the original "country picker" screen you see when you first set up your HP webOS Account. It uses the same mechanism as appredirect URLs.
Requirements: webOS 3.x, App Catalog version 5.0.3400
Download: Please see attachment.
The patch is also being submitted to Preware. The Patch Portal does not support patches for App Catalog where the patch applies to a newer code than the one shipped in webOS Doctor. Therefore it is not available in Preware. See rwhitby's post below.
On-device installation via email instructions by sledge007 copied from the Homebrew Pivot thread:
1. Click "Email Attachment" beside the patch download link to email the patch to yourself.
2. Open the email.
3. Tap and hold the attachment until "Save Attachment" pops up.
4. Open up Internalz Pro (available from Preware) and navigate to "/media/internal/downloads" (tap the home button on the upper right corner, and tap "downloads" from the list).
5. Find "appcat-3400-countrypicker.patch" and open it, install it, and restart Luna when prompted.
6. The patch is installed.
Usage: Use the "key" URL (case sensitive!): http://developer.palm.com/appredirec...=COUNTRYPICKER. Then find your country, tap it, tap Continue, and YES, just like the first time.
