    We have started a new thread for WebOS Quick Install. Please continue any discussion here.

    WebOS Quick Install v2.6

    This program is intended for use with WebOS applications that are in-testing, which under section 4.2 of the Palm SDK License Agreement allows for such unapproved applications to be installed on Palm devices. Applications installed with WebOS Quick Install have not be tested by Palm and are installed at your own risk.

    This program is freeware, but not opensource. Feel free to share it with other testing forums.

    I can be contacted at
    If you contact me, or post in this thread to contact me, you must also include the following information:
    - Device: are you using a Palm Pre or the emulator
    - Operating System (include 32bit or 64bit)
    - Have you followed my troubleshooting guide completely
    I will be ignore emails/posts that don't follow that format.

    Donations are appreciated as I'm just one person developing this app during my spare time.

    Enjoy! :-)

    NOTE: Remove all Tweaks before upgrading from 2.03 to 2.5

    Installation and Usage Guide.

    Troubleshooting Guide

    Tweaks Guide (slightly out of date, I'll update soon)

    • WebOSDoctor recovery rom
      • Do not run WebOSDoctor, or you may inadvertently erase your device to WebOS 1.03 factory settings
      • If you want to download it on your own, Sprint download here, Bell download here (use either if you're just using emulator) and copy that .jar file to the same folder as WebOSQuickInstall.jar

    • Java 1.6
      • For Mac OS X, once you've installed Java 1.6, run /Application/Utilities/Java/Java Preferences. Then click and drag Jave SE 6 to top of both list, and exit the program. This will set Java 1.6 as the default version to use.

    • Novacom
      • You can manually install Novacom by going in WebOSQuickInstall and in the menu File->Options, then press the "Attempt Novacom (re)installation" button.
      • If you have issues and you're on Windows, try following these instructions (even if you aren't on Windows 7).
      • For Linux, try downloading the Novacom file here.

    • DevMode enabled
      • This can be done by typing "upupdowndownleftrightleftrightbastart", opening the DeveloperMode app, and enabling the feature.

    Lastly, when you plug in the device, if you want to use WebOS Quick Install, choose the "Just Charge" option on the device.

    Running WebOS Quick Install
    • Simply double-click WebOSQuickInstall.jar and (as long as Java is installed properly) it will launch

    • Stylish easy-to-use GUI.
    • Cross-platform support (Windows, Mac OS X, Linux).
    • Supports postinst and prerm scripts.
    • Tweaks panel for OS customization on a deeper level.
    • Full device theming support
    • Supports standard ipkg feeds.
    • No Linux knowledge required.
    • No root access required.
    • Support for multiple ipk file transfers.
    • Add files via filechooser popup or by dragging and dropping files onto the transfer queue window.
    • Works with both USB-connected WebOS devices and the WebOS emulator.
    • Full device information section with management of user-installed applications.
    • Send and receive files to and from a WebOS device.
    • Quick-access link to the PreCentral homebrew forums.
    • Handy usage panel that explains the earlier-mentioned requirements.

    The new version isn't detecting mods from older version(like battery % mod). I'm guessing I should remove all the mods in 2.03 and reapply in new version?

    Also with this new patch support. Should I just remove all my quilt mods and use this?

    hey anybody else running mac os 10.6 notice that you can't load any of the tweaks? I removed all of the tweaks from the prior quick install so this should be clean.

    Yes, you must uninstall all 2.03 mods before updating

    Quilt is nice, it's really just a matter of preference which to use.

    I should note, my patcher outputs an xml of the current config. So if any on-device developers have need to use if for one reason or another, PM me
