TouchVol listing in Preware feed should now be resolved.

Posted by touchcontrol on October 30, 2011

Version 0.0.2 is simply a re-released 0.0.1 to resolve the preware issue.  You won’t see any differences, yet.

Preware feed still not fixed… instructions to sideload. (updated 10/27/2011)

Posted by touchcontrol on October 26, 2011

Yes, I know it won’t load from preware.  If I could fix it myself I would, but I hath not the access.  Please take a second to read the posts on this site, or visit the home app thread at precentral: here

I figured I’ll add some alternative directions here to sideload/direct link for those of you new/newish to webos.  (wikipedia: sideload)

From the device:

1.  Make sure you have the dependency package: Homebrew JS Service Framwork installed.  (available in the usual places including preware)

2. Run Preware, select Install Package from the app menu in the topleft corner.

3. Type in: http://cdn.precentral.net/resources/applications/000/016/218/com.wordpress.touchcontrol.touchvol_0.0.1_all.ipk <enter>

(The previous easier link was being altered by an authenticator string from the login system, you can also login to precentral.net and use http://www.precentral.net/touchvol  to grab it.)

4. Either select Install or Get Info followed by Install.

From a PC:

1.  Make sure you have the dependency package: Homebrew JS Service Framwork installed.  (available in the usual places including preware)

2.  Grab a copy of WOSQI (WebOS Quick Installer) available: here

3.  Download the ipk from precentral:  here

4.  Save the file somewhere you can find it.

5.  Connect the touchpad to your system with a usb cable, run WOSQI.

6.  Hit the plus button and select the com.wordpress.touchcontrol.touchvol_0.0.1_all.ipk file, hit select button.

7.  Select Install.

Preware feed..

Posted by touchcontrol on October 25, 2011

For those grabbing TouchVol off the Preware feed, it’s not going to work currently (10/24/2011)

There are several items missing or wrong in the feed including the actual link to the install ipk.  (I’m actually surprised Preware isn’t throwing an onscreen error of some kind.)  I seem to be somewhat unsuccessful at attracting the attention of the powers that be inside precentral to get it fixed currently.  So hang on your hats, or download it directly from the precentral homebrew app page.
