    Hello,

    I've created a new Precentral feed for Preware. In this feed, all the files are hosted on HTTP, so it works on any legacy webOS device. No ssl proxy required.

    Here is the feed URL: http://weboslives.eu/feeds/precentral

    Detailed steps to add it:

    1. Launch Preware
    2. Tap Manage Feeds
    3. Unselect precentral (move the slider to off)
    4. Go back
    5. Let Preware to update the Feeds
    6. Tap Manage Feeds again
    7. Scroll down to New Feed, enter a unique name (e.g., precentral-fixed) and the following URL: http://weboslives.eu/feeds/precentral
    8. Read the warning message and if you are fine with the risks hit Ok
    9. Go back and let Preware to update the Feeds


    The new feed is an almost exact replica of the original feed. None of the IPKs are modified, only the Packages + Packages.gz were updated with the new HTTP URLs.

    Tested on Pixi Plus on 1.4.5.1, Veer on 2.2.4 and Pre 3 on 2.2.4.

    In addition to this, there is also a resurrected palm-catalog feed for Preware. Similarly to the other feed, all the files are hosted on HTTP, so it works on any legacy webOS device. No ssl proxy required.

    Caveats:

    • There are missing apps. The feed is linked to files recovered by @codepoet, but it is missing apps released after the demise of Palm and plenty of others.
    • Icons and screenshots are not included.


    Here is the feed URL: http://weboslives.eu/feeds/palm-catalog

    Detailed steps to add it:

    1. Launch Preware
    2. Tap Manage Feeds
    3. Scroll down to New Feed, enter a unique name (e.g., palm-catalog) and the following URL: http://weboslives.eu/feeds/palm-catalog
    4. Read the warning message and if you are fine with the risks hit Ok
    5. Go back and let Preware to update the Feeds


    The new feed is an almost exact replica of the original feed. IPKs are the same as in the WebOS App Museum II, Packages + Packages.gz were updated with the new HTTP URLs.

    Tested on Pixi Plus on 1.4.5.1, Veer on 2.2.4 and Pre 3 on 2.2.4.

    I have made some quality of life improvements in all of the weboslives.eu Preware feeds (webOS Archive, Precentral, and Palm-Catalog). A number of applications were not parsed correctly in the earlier iterations resulting in broken download links, missing descriptions, icons, screenshots etc. Many of these should be fixed now.

    Here is a summary of the changes (number of apps updated):

    Code:
      9543 palm-catalogfixedlist.txt
       275 precentralfixedlist.txt
       595 wosafixedlist.txt
     10413 total
    To apply the changes: Update your Preware feeds.

    See the full list of updated apps in the following files:



    Please note that this update does not include any new applications (save for the 3 newly archived apps posted to WOSA recently). With that said, as many download links were fixed, you may see more apps available.
