  1. Picture credit: pxhere.com Happy Halloween! The long wait is finally over #LuneOS and #webOS fans! We’re back with a new release called “Eggnog Latte” which is a milestone in terms of developments and paves the way forward! So you’re wondering what we’ve been up to since our previous stable release at the end of last year? We have done many major upgrades to a large number of components of our stack being: Migration of Open webOS to webOS OSE components. We are almost half way there in terms of the migration of old Open webOS components to their webOS OSE replacements. T

  3. The very long wait is over #LuneOS and #webOS fans! We’re finally back with a new release called “Doppio” which we believe will be a milestone in terms of developments and the way forward! So you’re wondering what we’ve been up to for the past year? Well, actually a whole lot to be honest! We have upgraded the bluetooth stack from BlueZ4 to BlueZ5 which required quite some work to the kernels. This has been successfully completed for the Nexus 4 (Mako) and Nexus 5 (Hammerhead); unfortunately to date we haven’t been able to get this to work on the Touchpad (4G) (Tenderloin). We have been w

  5. There’s a new Palm phone. It’s due to be released next month. Now, if you are a long time Palm enthusiast (and reader of this blog) you will no doubt be telling your heart not to beat too quickly because to put it mildly, things have not worked out well in the past. We already knew that TCL / Alcatel had bought the brand (only). The possibility of a new phone running webOS was dismissed. The speculation on the webOs Nation forum was that we would be seeing a standard Android slab with the Palm logo stuck on, though no one could figure out quite how that would be a success.

  7. It’s been over a year since there was a webOS meet up in Chicago, but it’s happening next month! There are many fun things to do in Schaumburg, but the highlight of your visit will of course be the chance to sit down with fellow webOS enthusiasts to enjoy pizza and good conversation. The 2018 webOS meetup will be on Sunday June 3rd 2018 at 7pm. The place is Moretti’s Ristorante and Pizzeria, 1893 Walden Office Square, Schaumburg, IL 60173. Bring your old webOS devices, your new LuneOS devices and your Raspberry Pi running webOS OSE (but maybe leave your webOS TV at home). Click here for

  9. Android Police broke the story earlier today that TCL will launch a Palm branded phone via Verizon sometime in the 2nd quarter this year. And surprise…it runs Android. Sadly that’s all we know for now. It’s taken TCL a long time to do anything with the Palm brand. We first talked about it 3 years ago. It started as an unveil of sorts at CES in 2015 when they announced they had purchased the Palm brand and they’d be crowd-sourcing from “Palm’s very own community” what to do with it. No idea what they meant by that… They even launched a website placeholder that directed palm.com to mynewp

  11. Dig around in your closet, dump out that side table drawer, and wade through boxes in your garage. Do whatever you have to do to find those old Palm OS devices because there’s a new software archive in town! Reddit user, Yiddish, established the archive and is adding to it via donations from Palm fans. (Check out /r/Palm by the way!) If you have files to add, reach out to Yiddish via the Reddit post or on the twitter page for @ArchivePalmOS. Shalom! #PalmOSforever Click the pic above for a recent /r/Palm post from andymememe.

  13. The release of fresh webOS code from LG in the form of webOS Open Source Edition was unexpected. There’s been some interest in what exactly it is. Fortunately, web developer, Garrett Downs has the Raspberry Pi 3 needed to run the code and we have a guest post with his first impressions: What’s that? Pining for webOS? Build and install on your Raspberry Pi! https://t.co/3Eslofgb1x and https://t.co/GxY3yWnJlz — webOS DevRelations (@webOSdev) March 20, 2018 When I saw a tweet from @webOSdev announcing webOS OSE was available to install on a Raspberry Pi 3, I knew what I’d be doing that nigh

  15. Yo! We heard you like open sourced webOS so LG open sourced the open source of webOS! Ok, so that’s not entirely accurate since LG purchased the closed source webOS code from HP after they open sourced…well…bits and pieces of it back in 2012. So no, you’re not stuck in a Doctor Strange time loop. webOS has been open sourced before but not by LG. This news comes as a shock to the current legacy webOS community still rocking Pre 3s and waiting for LuneOS to reach “driver” status. The community hasn’t poured through the code as of yet but it immediately begs certain questions: Will the wo

  17. It’s been quite a while since our last release and we’ve been keeping quiet lately. Some of the team members have also enjoyed some well deserved time off in the meanwhile as well. The majority of what we’ve been working on hasn’t been and isn’t ready for public consumption. But quite a lot of things have happened in the past couple of months. Here’s what we’ve been working on since the previous release: -Updated various underlying OS bits: IM plugins such as SkypeWeb, YahooPlusPlus. -Update from BlueZ4 to BlueZ5. This one is a major upgrade that requires all our targets to have major re

  19. Have you ever wanted (or needed) to create your own app for webOS? I did. My aim was to create custom apps to launch websites or local html/css/javascript files. Read on for… What I did: Since I knew nothing about Mojo or Enyo, I went looking for a simple template app that I could customize as required using nothing but a text editor and Jason Robitaille’s IpkPackager. But if such a template exists, I couldn’t find it. So I created one. You can get it over at GitHub. Go explore the template app! The template app contains a set of detailed instructions and the files are commented to make

  21. If you have Forums and/or Communities for the TouchPad, you’ll notice webOS Nation forums aren’t working. The good news is, there’s a fix for it for Forums. The bad news is there’s no fix for it in Communities…yet. webOS Nation forum user, Fred Zyphal, noted the Forums app wasn’t connecting to the webOS Nations forums anymore and others jumped in to confirm and to test some solutions. It turns out Forums just needs the entry for webOS Nation updated from http to https. So swipe away your old entry for it and add a new one with the “s” after http. Communities seems to be more difficult and
  22. KarenIf you’re an active member of the webOS community these days, you’ll know we’re a small, tight-knit group of friendly folks. Our three subgroups tend to be mostly free-time developers, advanced users, and those that are hanging on to the form factor/mobile OS despite its limited services and with little regard for the do-it-all-for-you modern devices. The forums on webOS Nation continue to be the primary source for communication and provide the venue for meeting the occasional “newcomer” to our little slice of the web. This is the story of one such friend of webOS. Meet Karen… …a comple
  23. Found my old one!! Just no idea how to get past this palm profile screen without having Sprint service on it pic.twitter.com/qC9w5Q1fpb — Tim Schofield (@qbking77) December 11, 2017 Tech-tuber, Tim Schofield, dug out a Palm Pre today to do a comparison video of the iPhone X and the original Palm Pre with equal parts “Apple finally copied webOS” and “this weird device is old, lolz” sprinkled in. Perhaps the video is in response to claims from Qualcomm that Apple went too far in their borrowing (read: theft) of elements that made webOS, well, webOS. He admits this isn’t a serious compa
  24. Does webOS Quick Install look like this on your computer? Well, if you have a high resolution display (QHD+, 4k, etc.) on your Windows PC, there’s a fix for that. Over at superuser, someone having a similar issue posed the “how do I fix it” question because holy cow, that’s hard to read. I’d been struggling with it myself for about a year and never had much luck fixing it. This fix however, fixed not only my Java app issues (specific to webOS Quick Install and Nova Device Installer) but also fixed other apps that don’t scale well like 7zip (by making the change to the 7zip exe). Here’s th
  25. Just like an older car, with any webOS device these days, you have to perform some maintenance to keep it running smoothly. And one of those maintenance items you have to do on your webOS device is cleaning out the “var” (variable data) partition. If your webOS device has any of the following symptoms, the trouble could be that your “var” partition is full, or nearly full: Unable to download files, or play streaming media. Can’t install or update webOS apps. Trouble downloading new e-mails. Generally sluggish, or very slow to respond to gestures. The “var” partition is an area of the disk
