Default How do I export installed applications to ipk?

With things getting progressively worst for webOS, I was wondering if there is a relatively simple way to export my installed applications to ipk for backup reasons?

I am thinking about erasing everything and starting fresh, but this will cause me to lose the installed applications.

You can't revert an app to an ipk... But you can retain an ipk during install for archiving.

The issue I am having is that it refuses to connect to the app catalog. I am not sure if it is still running or if the certificate was never downloaded before the old one expired, but if I were to reset everything, I would not be able to re download the applications. (cant find any way to fix the certificate issue as I missed the update)

The App Cat is still running...

Have you tried the official fix? https://developer.palm.com/support/applicationupdate

Installing the Updates after July 23rd

For users of ALL webOS devices:
  1. Open the “Date & Time” app on your device.
  2. Set “Network Time” to Off.
  3. Set the date to July 1, 2013.
  4. Open the App Catalog
  5. Type “App Catalog Update” in the search filed, and select “Enter” on the keyboard.
  6. Tap the “App Catalog Update” app to display the details page.
  7. Tap “Download for Free” to download and install the app.
  8. Return to the “Date & Time” app.
  9. Set the date back to the current date.
  10. Set “Network Time” to On.

Before doing this open Software Manager and clear out any pending updates, reboot system.
Afterwards, try a reboot.

Got Internalz Pro?
You can inspect your certificate by navigating to and opening: /etc/ssl/certs/trustedcerts/PalmWebOS.pem
Or use WOSQI to pull a copy from that location to your computer for examination.

I tried following the instructions, and it still gets the error "The action could not be completed. Try again later."

Many have gotten a "False Negative" when updating... Did you manually verify the cert? Check your App Cat version as an alternative: it should have moved from 5.0.3400 to 5.0.3500 after the update.


MikeN68 has supplied this ipk: https://www.dropbox.com/s/pia7xi5wbd...date_3.0.0.ipk
I can't find verification that it works, but you could try installing it on your TP with WOSQI or Internalz Pro.


Garfonso recommends this:
Quote:
If you are stuck at this point (and you will be) do the following:
Open up Software Manager
Scroll to App Cataloge
Tap on it
It will complain that something can't install
Tell it to not try re-downloading, cancel update whatever
If you have the HP App Cataloge Update App installed, uninstall that, too.

Now you have the old app cataloge software. That is good. That is what you want. Now do what you were told before:
Open up App Cataloge
Search for HP App Cataloge Update
Yes, it is a new app
It has a different logo
Install that app through the App Cataloge
Yes, it will work, if you set the date back to 2013-07-20

Now you're done. Set the date back to the actual date and everything is fine.

So in short:
Do not "update" App Catalog. You need to install a separate app for that now!!!
Again, I don't have confirmation from another source of it working...


Of the two, I'd try the ipk first. It's just easier and more straight forward.
