Luna Manager - Version: 0.0.3


Icon WebOSInternals StopLight.png

Luna Manager is one of the handiest apps for homebrewers allowing you to control multiple aspects of Luna with a simple GUI


Luna Manager can be installed via Preware or WebOS Quick Install

Luna Manager requires the package manager service (that preware uses) to be installed to work.

As of Preware v0.9.29, Luna Manager was rolled into preware (as Luna Manager in its appmenu.) But it is still available standalone.



Rescan Option allows you to rescan your launcher. So when you install a new app and icon doesn't show up this will generally fix that.

Note: There is a bug in rescan which causes it to kill some background processes which will stop you from getting calls/sms/emails/etc until your next luna restart.

To do this via Command line:

luna-send -n 1 palm://com.palm.applicationManager/rescan {}

Restart Luna

Restarting Luna is a good solution when you install patches, themes and some advanced homebrew apps to apply the changes without the need of a full reboot of the phone. It is a lot faster then an entire reboot and comes in quite handy. Keep in mind that it will close all your currently open applications.

To do this via Command line:

Restart Java

Restarting Java is used for advanced home brew applications and installations for new services to take effect. Much easier then an entire reboot of the phone. Keep in mind This will cause your phone to lose network connection and be pretty sluggish until it is done restarting.

To do this via Command line:

/sbin/initctl stop java-serviceboot
/sbin/initctl start java-serviceboot
