If you have Forums and/or Communities (ipk download) for the TouchPad, you’ll notice webOS Nation forums aren’t working. The good news is, there’s a fix for it for Forums AND Communities (now). The bad news is there’s no fix for it in Communities…yet.
Sadly Forums is dead for webOS 1.x with the change to https. No amount of backup from a working 2.x device and restoration to a 1.x device will help. It was already pretty crippled anyway but this is the nail in the coffin. 🙁
So the catalog is dead. Oh well. Finding random ipks online, whether they be in a shared directory somewhere or from a friend hooking you up can be frustrating. Getting apps for webOS devices is left to the back alley ways of the darkest recesses of private forum messaging and dropbox links. I don’t care how you get them. I won’t judge.
