Here ya go. I'm no expert with this, but it seems it's much easier to change the Touchpad's user agent. This patch uses the iPad's user agent. Again, all credit goes to dkirker; I just put his work into a simple patch.

Edit:
See top post for download link.

LOL... I didn't even realize that was you Garrett! Looks like the new Passport login system combined your usernames into this one, huh?

Yea, but it was intentional. Got bored with my old one...

Now if only I could fix this messed up avatar. Seems like they're still ironing out the bugs in the new system? lol

They are actually in the process up rolling out an update to the avatar settings to share the same one across all sites. (Might see way too many robots in here after that!) You may have issues with avatars until that gets completed soon

Ah, well I guess I can deal with having an ugly avatar for a little while.

I can't find this patch in Preware.
Is it in the Alpha/Beta feeds?

Update top post with more user agents for the Touchpad. The two new ones (Firefox and Chrome) are completely untested. I just shipped my Touchpad a couple hours ago to it's new owner, so there's not much I can do anymore.

On a side note, I cant believe you guys downloaded last night's patch over 80 times already. There's more of you out there than I thought there was... lol

Any chance that these could be combined and made Tweaks compatible so you could choose the one you need?

I don't believe that's possible.

Nope. Tweaks won't work. You'd probably want an app to dynamically apply patches. It is all a mess. I am just going to spend my time forcing Isis to work on the systems.

Not exactly related to the patch, but can someone explain what all the functions in the webosinternals wiki page for pre3 are for. I would like to put on an android UA (nex1 with 480x800?) and would like to work out how to do it as the UA I have found for it (and others) aren't exactly the same as the iOS one.

For reference:

<useragent description="Google Nexus One (2.2.1) - 480x800" useragent="Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android 2.2.1; en-ca; Milestone Build/SHOLS_U2_05.26.1) AppleWebKit/533.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0 Mobile Safari/533.1" vendor="Google" appversion="2.2.1"/>

I'm not sure of the advantages (or disadvantages) of one patch over another, but I tried the Chrome patch for my Touchpad. Now I can edit transactions on Mint.com!
