Kindle Import "Operation Failed" on TouchPad

I was trying to import a few books into Kindle on TouchPad using Calibre + Kindle Import but was getting the error "Operation Failed". Here's how I resolved this problem

  1. Uninstalled Kindle & Kindle Import 
  2. Deregistered this Kindle instance from the Amazon account (it may even work if this step is skipped)
  3. Restart TouchPad
  4. Reinstall Kindle and Kindle Import
  5. Reregister this Kindle instance
  6. Convert & Push the books from PC to TouchPad using Calibre
  7. Run Kindle Import on TouchPad to select & import these books
That should solve your problem!

Updates to HomeBrew patches on TP

Updates to the patches listed in my previous post on Installing HomeBrew on TouchPad are now available for webOs3.0.4! Go ahead and update the patches and enjoy your TP. Note that I had to update each patch individually as the option to update all did not work.

Make PDF Reader intelligent on HP TouchPad

The PDF reader on the HP TouchPad currently just reads pdfs  :) It would be great if it could remember the last page that I had read on a particular pdf and it would be great if it allowed me to bookmark specific pages on pdfs.

Well, it seems that this particular wish is now granted and works well according to this thread on preCentral forums. It is a simple as downloading and installing this ipk - that's all one needs to do to get this awesome feature!

Note that this is just the beginning and there's lots of work still to be done.
