, such as your App Launcher setup, your synergy accounts, web bookmarks, contacts/calendar/memos entries to your Palm Profile, and more. As webOS progressed from version 1.0.1 to where it is now, the data that was included in your backup also expanded, now including your and some application data if an app developer utilizes that functionality in their app. However, there are few big omissions in the Palm Profile backup, such as saved application/game data and homebrew apps/patches.

WebOS Internals has helped fill that void with the use of the and the "Saved Package List" feature in Preware, and we have documented all the steps you can take to successfully backup and restore your webOS data when you swap or Doctor your device in our . However, there are a few additional steps that you may want to consider taking when reactivating a device to make the transition easier:

    • Before you restore all the packages in Preware's Saved Package List, you should consider installing and configuring App Tuckerbox first. This will add the proper feeds to Preware that will allow you to download any apps from the official App Catalogs that did not auto-download to your device. This will occur if those apps were not compliant with your installed webOS version or were from the beta or web feeds of the App Catalog
    • If you have added some of the advanced scripts to Save/Restore to backup some additional system files or images, you will need to be sure to add those scripts back to your new device before running a "Restore applications" from within Save/Restore.
    • If you had disabled Voice Dial on your old webOS 2.x device, don't forget to disable it again on your new device
  • Restore your Text Assist learned words and shortcuts [webOS 2.x]
    • Unfortunately, neither the Palm Profile nor Save/Restore will restore your or that you added to on your webOS 2.x or 3.x device, but you are able to get a or using Save/Restore.
    • From here, you can manually add that data back into Text Assist on your new device or follow the steps outlined in our tip to use command line to add them back.
    • While your Palm Profile backup will restore your synergy email accounts and most settings, it will not restore any default email folders that you set for your Sent, Draft or Trash folders.
  • Reset Just Type and Exhibition Settings [webOS 2.x+]
    • While and Exhibition mode were two great features in webOS 2.x (and continued in webOS 3.x), their settings were not carried over when you restore your device. Be sure to go into your to enable your preferred Quick Actions and Launch & Search settings, and open up your Exhibition app to .
  • Check general settings
    • Just as with your Just Type and Exhibition settings, your Palm Profile will also not restore every setting on your device. So, you may want to open up the various settings apps to make sure that everything is set to your own personal preferences.
    • For example, open up the to , , or to toggle fast-app switching with a full swipe in the gesture area.
    • Or open up the app and make sure you have the .
    • Continue with the rest of the Settings apps

Got any other suggestions not included above that you follow when you restore your profile onto a new webOS device?

      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

      As stated in the title. 
      I can't connect my controller to the tv, however it says there may be some incompatibility issues. Which is interesting because it's listed in the compatible products on LG's webpage.
      When I open the web browser and go to the Xbox xcloud site to play games. I hit 'ready to play' and it says that it can't detect the controller even though its connected to my TV.

      Things I've tried: 
      - Unplugging my TV from the wall for 5 minutes or so.
      - Updating the TV to the latest software.
      - Updating the controller to the latest software.
      - Putting the controller USB stick into the TV and connecting it to the TV that way.
      - Removing all wireless transmission devices away from the TV (except my Orbi or Wireless router, roughly 5 meters away from the TV)

      I've seen a Youtube video of someone successfully connecting their controller and play xcloud on the web browser but i haven't had the same success.

      Any ideas or solutions would be much appreciated.
      Cheers
