    Hi, Thank you so much for reading this thread... I really like my WebOS HP Touchpad.... It does exactly what I want it to do. However just recently I'm staring to have problems with it and since the Application store seems to be closed, I'm not sure what to do.... Can someone help me with this? Please.


    1. I can't upload photos to the tablet. They don't show up anymore in the photos and videos application. They are there, when I connect to the USB port in the computer. This was a very important application for me, because I used this a lot.... My old photos and videos do show up...

    2. Then this week, I noticed that my Kindle doesn't work anymore. I spent an hour with somone from Amazon, trying to help me, but they had no idea how WebOS works. They were trying to get me to use Android.... I don't like Android very much.... Anyways, they had me delete Kindle and were going to show me how to reinstall it, but then they couldn't find it in their Amazon website.... So, now I'm without Kindle...

    Is there a way to restore this touchpad without loosing my applications that I have downloaded? Or to backup the applications and then restore it again? Is there a place where I can download and install Kindle... Not even sure how to do that....

    Thank you so much!!!

    Blessings,

    Kees

    Hi,

    Do you have WebOS Quick Install? (WOSQI). If so, You can reinstall Kindle.

    See post number 7 here:

    Then download Kindle ipk (package to install) here

    Hope this helps.

    And if you are up to it, once you have 'Preware' installed, download 'Internalz Pro' and use it to delete the file as described below from an old thread here.. this *should* restore all your photos:

    "..1). Run Internalz Pro.
    2). Delete: - ' /var/luna/data/filenotify.db3 '
    3). Reboot the device
    4). Start Photo App.
    ( + "..Take a Photo - click on the preview to view - Close Camera -
    Close & Re-open Photo app.. " if nec.)
    5). Photos *should* now begin re-loading/indexing correctly.

    ~~~~

    Run Internalz
    Delete /var/luna/data/filenotify.db3
    Reboot the device
    Start Photo app - all blank (could be whilst re-indexing after startup)
    Take a Photo - can now click on the preview to view the full image (couldn't do this before).
    Close Camera
    Open Photo app - photos now appearing correctly.

    Excellent! This fixed the problem for me where I couldn't see recent pictures in the Photos app and couldn't jump to Photos from Camera by tapping on the picture thumbnail.

    My process was very slightly different:

    Run Internalz
    Delete /var/luna/data/filenotify.db3
    Reboot the device
    Start Photo app - saw old thumbnails and thought it hadn't worked
    After about ten seconds the screen was filled with a spinner as the file indexer kicked off. When it was done, everything worked as it should.."

    Hope this helps.. it has certainly helped me on more than one occaision!

    So Kindle has worked for the past few years, except with the One Time Password trick, as documented in the App Museum here:
    Amazon Kindle Beta - webOS App Museum II

    However, as of last night it seems to have stopped working. My registered device was hanging when I started up the app, so I removed it and re-installed, and now it won't accept the one time password, and the logs show that I'm not a customer:

    Code:
    [20210715-13:12:06.746370] info: DoRegister::registrationFailed
    [20210715-13:12:06.787985] info: KindleDatabase::addKCFMetric name:RegisterDevice
    [20210715-13:12:06.788391] info: EventThread::QuitThread
    [20210715-13:12:06.788666] info: DoRegister::~DoRegister
    [20210715-13:12:06.788930] info: AmazonWebserviceCall::~AmazonWebserviceCall
    [20210715-13:12:06.789212] info: callRegisterDevice complete: RegisterDeviceErrorTypeCustomerNotFound
    Anyone else having issues with the Kindle app? Or was I the last user...
    I did notice that Amazon's device registration experience has changed, so maybe they did some back-end clean-up and nuked us?

    I'm late as well. And yes, my Kindle works and syncs on the Touchpad.

    Mine works now too. I was in Canada when I was having these issues, so I suspect some kind of geo-lock :-(

    Bought another TouchPad in late 2019 and got to set it up only this month. I'm unable to register my Kindle despite using the OTP -- whether it's just the OTP or the password+OTP.
