Preware update bringing app blacklist, Govnah gets more options, Save/Restore backs up even more 16

Preware 1.2.6

The ultimate homebrew app is getting another update, and this one is bringing often-requested and powerful features to the mix. Preware, by WebOS Internals, is currently in testing at version 1.2.6, and this update promises to bring blacklist support to the various app feeds that Preware accesses. You may remember the blacklist App Catalog patch that came out a while back. Essentially Preware now has that same functionality and more baked in, with more advanced options that let you filter out apps by name, description, or even the package ID (the file name of the app).

Couple this with the direct IPK installation that Preware picked up just a little while ago and this is quickly becoming an even more powerful app. The new version of Preware should be publicly available soon, in the meantime if you really want to get your bleeding edge on, you can always add the WebOS Internals testing feed to your app feeds and see what happens there.

Govnah, the front-end overclocking management app has also received an update, this time adding more options and customizability. Version 0.6.1, recently released to the public, gives users a revamped advanced options screen that makes building custom overclocking profiles a cinch. Additionally, UberKernel, the backend overclockable webOS kernel (the software core that interacts with the physical components of the device), has received an update to 1.4.5-74 for both the Pre and Pre Plus as well as the Pixi and Pixi Plus. The new UberKernel now has the ability to detect how much current is flowing through the device, including while docked on a Touchstone. This info can now be displayed in Govnah, so if you’re fearing that there’s too much (or too little) juice going to or from your battery, now you’ll know.

Lastly, the Save/Restore app has received a hefty update to version one dot zero dot zero. The new update has rolled in more than 200 supported applications, as well as the ability to save and restore launcher icon positions and web browser bookmarks.

As always, the folks at WebOS Internals don’t ask for anything more than your donation to keep their awesome operation going.

Derek, you misspelled Govnah in the title of your thread. :)

Fixed. I shoulda caught that :)

I am so glad to see the blacklisting capabilities.

What are you blocking?

I am blocking:

AppBookShop
EHYP
Dijit
PalmAgent
Brighthouse Labs
Appible
Pressed Aps
tEarn
Upward Mobility
cellBall

cellBall is a title, all the rest are maintainers.

BHL & PA firstly. It's gonna be so good to not seeing that shit again!

Come to think of it, I'm probably gonna filter noBama too. May he stay in office at least as long as the bushwack before him!

of course Brighthouse Labs! haha, I laughed when I saw that, I knew it would make most anyone's list.

If you guys ever do want custom written test prep for mobile platforms, you can temporarily unblock us. ::sigh:: I hate the Brighthouses and tEarns as much as the rest of you, it pains me to be on the same list...

Am I the only one not seeing the update available? Also my patch count has not changed in weeks.

It's not available in the public feed yet. It's still in testing.

Is it not in the test feeds then either? I have the test feeds selected as I have the F105 Kernal installed....

there are several testing feeds. the kernels feed is separate from their govnah, save/restore, and preware feed. the link in the article takes you right where you need to go to find the info.

Can somebody tell me what is I/O scheduler (I have mine set to CFQ) and TCP congestion (set to Cubic). Other options in I/O are none, anticipatory, deadline. Other options in TCP are reno, bic, westwood, htcp, veno, illinois. or atleast point me to right direction. Thanks, I tried to google but too overwhelming for a non tech guy.

does save/restore save patches? I thought I remember reading somewhere that it does...

it would be great if my prewere would work. Couple days ago its stop to recognise my apps and patches, don't see what i have instaled, i don't now how to fix it, i alredy deleted prewere restarted pre and downloaded again, but its still the same

Yeah, after I updated my File Mgr file, and Internalz today, my Preware stopped recognizing anything unless I had just installed it... I don't have Twitter, so does anyone know whats going on?

Twitter @webosinternals They should help with your preware problem.

I added the test feed. When I try to update preware it just closes and when I restart I have the same version. What's going on?
