From WebOS Internals
Pages I contributed to the community are linked here. I'm not a developer I'm a systems engineer, so these won't be apps or patches, just things of interest regarding access to the underlying Linux operating system, install documents and other Systems things of interest.
Also having them linked here helps me to review/ maintain them
- The DNS name resolver page
- the Komodo_WebOS_Add-on_Installpage. A how-to-install document, how to update, and how to enable Code Intelligence. Screen shots, and verification steps included. (Templarian's Komodo WebOS Add-on is quite a time saver, many thanks to the developer, Templarian!)
- the putty page - how to CORRECTLY have PuTTY configured, for SSH2 into your Pre.
- the Bottom Bar page which is possibly deprecated now.
- The GPS page detailing the GPS hardware. and battery tests for the GPS.

Things I think are Useful for me to have here
This is my sandbox that I use when initially preparing new wiki pages, before release.
Blocking WebOS updates
I don't want the updates to happen at some unplanned (for me) time, so here is the way to block webOS updates:
cd /usr/bin mount -o remount,rw / chmod 664 UpdateDaemon mount -o remount,ro /
Then, reboot (ORN+ shift +R)
To reverse the process use this;
chmod 775 UpdateDaemon
This makes it executable again as it was before, and then reboot (required.)
