Fix For Palm Pre App Install Issue

So recently I upgraded to the newest version of WebOS 1.3.5.1 and noticed an issue when I went to install new apps from the app store.  Now first let me say I don’t know if this is a pre-update issue, a 1.3.5 or 1.3.5.1 issue or what but I just know it has happened to a couple of my friends.

It appears to be related to people who have downloaded homebrew apps and after the fix of the app limit and some files not moving over or something it is causing you to either have applications look like the are installing fine or they install and then get an error tied to the launch icon.

So how do you fix it?  Well after heading over to the precentral.net forums I was able to find the perfect solution that has helped myself plus a few others.  So if you are having issues getting new apps installed give this a whirl and it might just work out for ya!

1. Go into Preware and remove Luna Manager. 
2. Remove Preware using Orange + tap Preware icon. 
3. Then use WebOS Quick Install to remove Package Manager. 
4. Restart your phone (full restart). 
5. Then use WebOS Quick Install to reinstall Package Manager. 
6. Use WebOS Quick Install to reinstall Preware. 
7. Use WebOS Quick Install to reinstall Luna Manager. 
8. Luna Restart your phone.
9. Use Preware to install Emergency Migration Helper (phone will do auto Luna Restart).
10. Delete any failed installs on your phone using Orange + tap icon with ! on it.
11. Hopefully you can now download apps from the app catalog.

And as always if you have any questions or need anymore help just hit me up on here or on twitter.
