webOS Community Edition sees first release as webOS Ports' LunaCE Alpha

back in late June and worked with webOS homebrew pioneers WebOS Internals to put together the WebOS Ports group to guide development of the Community Edition project. We've seen plenty of what webOS developers have been able to hack into the open source component, but something that normal people like you and me could install wasn't yet available.

Technically speaking, what we have now is something that normal people could install, but it's not something that normal people should install. At least not yet. After two months of work the first alpha releases for the WebOS Ports version of the Community Edition LunaSysMgr have been released as the new LunaCE package that incorporates some of what we've seen unveiled and some new things too.

There's something very important to note: it's an alpha release, so it's guaranteed neither stability nor functionality. We installed it on one of our TouchPads to give it a test drive and it's generally pretty smooth, though it has some quirks (like odd spacing in the dock and issues with PIN locks). If you depend on your TouchPad, it's not something we'd recommend installing just yet, just to be safe. Plus it's good to be able to contribute to the process if you're going to install the LunaCE alpha - it's known to have some bugs, but there are likely others, and the WebOS Ports team needs some first-level testing to make it happen. Don't feel bad if you think you should wait for the beta version, or the release version; there's no shame in that.

So what all does LunaCE offer at this point? Infinite card cycling (reach the end of your spread of multitasking cards, swipe again to jump to the far end), (swipe from the edge in a stacked card to see a column of mini cards in that same stack to quickly switch), (swipe, slide, or drag in from the bezel to move to the next card - pictured above), and a universal search icon in the title bar, among other things. All of these features are controlled through the latest version of , which adds a new section for Luna options.

LunaCE is installable through Preware, but you'll need both access to the alpha feeds and the newest alpha version of Preware. Getting yourself set up in the alpha feeds requires terminal access on your TouchPad (either by hooking up through or using Xecutah) and following the instructions at . Once you're set up with the alpha feeds, installing LunaCE is a simple matter: bring it up in Preware, tap install, and then performa a Luna Restart. Hope into Tweaks to turn things on or off and you're ready to rock on the bleeding edge of homebrew. There is, of course, the unaltered Palm LunaSysMgr available to install in LunaCE's place should things not be to your liking.

We'll be keeping an eye on LunaCE as it progresses, it's am exciting homebrew project and we're glad that we've got WebOS Ports and WebOS Internals on the job with the support from HP.

      Re. LG C2 TV, WebOS ver. 03.30.16
      In the TV guide if you hover over a program selection (or it's (i) symbol) with the pointer the program's info dialog pops up.
      The problem I have is that after 5 to 10 seconds, while the program selection remains, the info dialog reverts to the currently playing program. This is a real pain as I for one can't read all of the program info in that time.
      If this is intentional is there somewhere I can configure the info display time or is this (as i suspect) a bug?

      CASACOR, which celebrated its 35th anniversary in 2022, is the largest integrated exhibition of architecture, interior design and landscaping in Latin America. Held in the city of São Paulo, Brazil, between July and September last year, the wide-ranging event featured more than 60 architect- and designer-led projects and attracted more than 115,000 in-person visitors.

      The official technology partner of CASACOR for four consecutive years, LG Brazil hosted a stylish lifestyle exhibit at the show, pairing modernist interior design with cutting-edge home innovations from the 2022 LG product lineup.

Among these were the LG G2 Gallery Series OLED TV, OLED Objet Collection Posé, side-by-side refrigerator, Styler, WashTower, PuriCare 360° Air Purifier and ARTCOOL Gallery air conditioner. The company’s state-of-the-art appliances blended in perfectly with the curated selection of vintage furniture pieces and interior objects to create a space of effortless comfort, convenience and aesthetic beauty.
      The layout of LG Magenta House was centered around a central island that divided the space into a living room, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and clothing area. The façade of the project featured walls made entirely of transparent glass bricks, a distinctly modernist touch that lets in natural light and warmth while still maintaining the privacy of those inside.

      Drawing inspiration from the Conjunto Nacional – which was completed in the 1950s and has the distinction of being one of São Paulo’s first modern multi-use buildings – the LG Magenta House was awarded the VEJA SP Award for Best CASACOR Environment in the category of “Best Suite.” LG Magenta House was also recognized with the “Best of 2022” award from Archello, a global platform that connects professionals such as architects, sculptors, painters and engineers.

      I have a 55UH6150 LG Smart TV and was wonder if it was possible to update it to version WebOS 6. I have some apps I would like to install but sadly they are only avaible on the content store from WebOS 6+. Is it in anyway possible to update the SW for it?
      I know the page doesn't show WebOS 6 listed for it, but am curious if there is a way I can do it anyways
      Any information would be much appreciated

      Hi Team,
      After update of LG WebOS to 04.40.70, Amazon Prime Video app on my LG Smart TV stopped working. It started giving error :
      Internet Connectivity Problem
      There is an internet connection problem. Check the device's internet settings, data cables, or try to resetting your router. Also, turning your device off, and then back on might fix the problem. For further assistance, please contact Amazon customer service at www.amazon.com/videohelp
      The internet/wifi connection is fine and all the other apps are working without any issue on the LG smart TV.
      I have even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Prime video app, but that didn't help.
      Has anyone faced this issue ? Is there a solution available for this issue.
      Thanks & Regards,
      Nitin
