PreCentral: Remote access your TouchPad files with Gemini File Manager

Recommended Posts

Gemini access remoteGemini File Manager, by Oma Studios, is a fully featured File Manager that allows you to access to your TouchPad's USB drive, giving you the ability to copy, move, delete and view all your files. It also offers a whole lot more than that, such as hooks into Dropbox and Box.net to access all your files in those services. But what you may not be aware of is that it also has a "Remote" feature that lets you browse all your files from any devices connected to the same Wi-Fi network that has a web browser, including other webOS phones or TouchPads. From there, you can download or view any file, all wirelessly, while still having full access to your TouchPad (unlike when plugging it in to your computer and accessing USB mode)

To access Remote mode, just open up Gemini, tap the "Remote" tab on the top of the screen, and then press the "Start Server" button (if desired, you can change the Port as well). Once you tap that button, a web address will be given to you that will allow you to access your files. Once you are done, simply tap the "End Service" button.

Note that there is no security options for accessing your files once you start the remote server. So, make sure that you are aware of who else may be on the same Wi-Fi network and who may know the IP address for your device.

Gemini File Manager is available in the webOS App Catalog for $2.99 and is compatible with all webOS devices running webOS 3.0 or higher.

    • Question: Unable to play FLAC files from PC server

      I am unable to play or see any FLAC files from my PC connected in my home network. The Music application does not see at all any FLAC files in the server folders (runnning Windows 10 Pro)., MP3 works fine. Putting FLAC files on an external USB device (like an USB stic) works, but not network sharing. Any suggestions? Model: 43UJ750V Software: 03.60.15 (last version).

    • Question: Permanently Delete Apps

      Is there a way to permanently delete apps to free up both ROM and RAM?  Uninstalling does not do it to allow for your TV response time to improve. A regular reset also fails to accomplish it. Will a factory reset produce the desired results?

    • Issues connecting the emulator or installing via app manager

      Hey devs, I'm setting up the dev enviroment for webOS since 2 days now and seems to get to an dead end. I followed this tutorial http://webostv.developer.lge.com/develop/building-your-first-web-app-webos-tv/ to step 6 which is the 'ares-install com.myproject.app' part. The CLI output:        Trying to connect the webOS IDE:        Trying to install via App Manager:    I have the feeling that these are different issues, but can't get a clear overview about whats the problem. I am using - webOS TV Emulator v4.0.0 - VirtualBox 5.2.12 - WebOS IDE Build 1532 - Windows 10   So far I tried: - Changing the IP and Port in any combination you could get from IP [127.0.0.1, VirtualBox-IP which is shown in ipconfig] and port [6622, 22].   If you need further information, let me know. Hoping someone can help me out at this point.     Edit: No need for help anymore. I tried to set something working up for 16 hours of worktime now. Including attempts with windows, ubuntu 16, ubuntu18, different solutions from the internet. Everything failed 😕 Stopping on this project now.

    • webOS OSE on HP Touchpad?

      With the release of webOS OSE, I'm wondering if it's able to run on the HP Touchpad. I wonder if someone will attempt to port it over.   Might give me a reason to pull out the old Touchpad, currently have an older Android system on it and haven't messed with it in over a year.
