PreCentral: Prevent vibration or sound when sending a message on the TouchPad (homebrew)

This tip is only for the HP TouchPad running webOS 3.0 or higher

No vibrate/sound on message send patchThe Messaging app on the HP TouchPad allows you to consolidate all your instant messaging needs into a single app, even including

. As you would expect, any time you receive a new message that TouchPad will notify you, either by a vibration or by playing a sound, depending on your sound or notification preferences. However, there is one annoying quirk of the app in that any time you send a message, it will also make a vibration or a sound.  There is really no good reason for this, as you would already know that you were sending a message and wouldn't need an alert for it.

In typical webOS community fashion, the homebrew community--specifically homebrew-extraordinaire --created a simple patch to prevent the TouchPad from alerting you whenever you send a message in the Messaging app. Just install the "No vibrate or sound on messaging send" patch from Preware or webOS Quick Install and you will never be annoyed by those unnecessary alerts again!

      I can stream ABC content using either the iView app on our LG G1 65" OLED, or via the iView Android TV app that is installed on a Chromecast with Google TV that is plugged into one of the G1 HDMI ports. If I stream content using the app on the TV, every few minutes there's a momentary (fraction of a second) interruption to both sound and video. If I stream the same content using the app on the Chromecast, I get no such interruptions. Both TV and Chromecast are using wired Ethernet connections to the same switch, so I can't see that these interruptions are due to a network problem, or I'd see them on both devices. It would seem to be a problem with the app provided on the TV. Other streaming services that we access via apps on the TV (Netflix, Stan, Amazon Prime, etc) do not show the same problem.

      The NEW Amazon Prime Video App update is horrible. Cannot access any content from my Shudder channel subscription. Constant errors.

      Hi! Thank you for your kind help
      I'm looking for a way to show an IP camera to LG TV, I've updated it to the latest version (WebOS).
      I really hope it is possible without buying an external HDMI box, there is any way to obtain that or install apps from USB? Thank you a lot!
