    Hi Everyone,

    I had a theme with preware, but i decided to uninstall it and installed a new one through WebOS Quick install, during the process... My usb cable accidently got yanked out of my computer, not letting it fully install...

    I restarted my phone to see if it would come up and it didnt

    Then .. I decided to uninstall it through preware.. but it didn't show up ...but it didnt let me put a new one on because i get an ERRor saying I have one installed already ....

    So I went to WEBOS Quick install to uninstall it... but then it just stays in "Please wait, this will take a few minutes so please be patient" and NOTHING happens... It pretty much freezes.. and i have to close WOSQI through my task manager on my comp.

    I tried running Emergency Patch Repair (I know ur not supposed to with themes.. but i didn't know what else)

    and of course that didn't soolve it...

    Does anybody have any ideas on how I could DELETE this invisible Theme from my phone??? PLEASEEE... I have the current WebOS 1.3.5 on my phone.. I REALLLLLY prefer not to Doctor.. SO does anyone have any other ideas???

    BTW.. patches work fine .. so its just the theme it gets stuck ...
    I also tried deleting and reinstalling Package manager service and preware..
    and turning my phone on and off through developer modes being on and off.

    okay. i would restart WOSQI and see what it gives you. if it allows you to install a theme I would reinstall that theme, then remove it. thta should do the trick.

    ...Oh, if you restart WOSQI and it doesnt give you the option to install, but gives you the option to uninstall I would try uninstalling again. it may get hung up again, but thats okay do it again (next time let it work longer) until it gives you the option to install. it should eventually work...if it doesn't let me know...

    its always given me the option to install a theme.. or revert to default.. but when i do either ... WEBOS freezes.

    yeah i am using the latest version. I think my only option is to wait for the Repair utility to come out...

    yeah. I think you may be right...hopefully that will be soon.

    If you used emergency patch recovery to try cleaning the ttheme, you messed ur phone bcause this patch is not compatible with themes only with patches, but try this maybe work try installing a new theme over the ghost theme, and then try uninstalling the new one!

    good luck!

    edit: if webos q.I is freezing restart ur pc and try it!

    Yeah i figured the EPR might mess it up .. but i figured it was worth the shot ..since its looking like i might have to DOCTOR at some point.

    DO u think the Repair will fix what I messed up??

    PS .. i tried restarting the comp .. whats weird is .. if I unplug my phone while the WOSQI is frozen .. it will then come back to life and say ERROR: no phone detected or whatver .. then i'll plug it in .. and it will refreeze.. When I **** it down throught task manager ... it says the JAVA is waiting from a response from me??? ugh i dunno .. this is all so complicated ..

    yeap webos repair utility is going to fix ... but you need to do with override compatibility

    edit: wait until jason update the repair utility to work with!

    mkdir: cannot create directory '/var/usr/lib/webos-quickinstall': File exists

    I am having a similiar sort of problem. I have a theme installed along with patches. I HAVE NOT updated to the new OS yet because I need to uninstall my theme and patches. I know that the theme should be uninstalled first, but when I go to WOSQI and click on themer, it gives me this error message:

    Error: Unable to read xml file. Illegal character 'square' at start or tag name near line 362, column 4.

    I've also tried to go through preware but it doesn't show any theme there either. What is going on and how to I get the theme off?

    PS even when I get the error message the themer comes up but doesn't show any current theme....I've tried uninsall and it will lock up on the screen that says it will take a few minutes (waited for an hour). Also tried installing a new theme and it locks up at the same point. HELP!!

    It seems we have to wait until the new WebOS repair utility comes out.... unless you want to doctor your phone..

    I AM EXTREMELY HAPPPPYYY to report that the Repair utility that was updated today cured my phone!!!! It repaired whatever was wrong and I was now able to install a theme through preware!!!

    TO the people with the same issue... make sure you go to options and make sure "Override compatability" is checked off (or else it won't fix themes, patches or whatever)

    YAY
    Pre user since summer '09...on my fourth phone.
