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.
