Don't forget you can get free webOS apps and games in our webOS applications section. Just download the .ipk and use Preware or WQI to install them.
Steps to install Preware on your new webOS tablet, the HP Touchpad is fairly simple. This is very similar to the method that is used for webOS phones.
1. Turn on Developer mode
- You turn on developer mode for the HP TouchPad the same way as a smartphone.
Go to Just Type and type "webos20090606" without quotes or "upupdowndownleftrightleftrightbastart" without quotes.
Any of these will prompt the search to pull of the Developer Mode. You turn it on and your device should be in developer mode. If it requests a password you may just press submit.
2. You use webOS Quick Install and select the feeds application, and select Preware. And Boom! Preware is installed. Simple and easy.
If you do not have webOS Quick Install you may get it at this link.
you can just alt ctrl delete and close webOS quick install, after that reboot everything and then make sure the TouchPad is connected properly and leave it on a table in case you are nudging the cable. Try install again. It won't brick your TouchPad.

First thing is to put yiur Touchpad in developer mode then connect your Touchpad to your computer. On your touchpad it should ask you if you want to use your touchpad as a usb drive click cancel and then open Quick install and follow the instructions in the first post of this thread.
All done. Java updated. Download WosQuick Install. Developer mode. Rebooted Computer/TP. Unplug/plug usb cable, at both ends. Rebooted Computer/Touchpad again. Install/reinstall novicom. Still sez "no device found"
