Web Inspector Porblems

I have been developing on the playbooks OS2.0 beta and had no problems with using the web inspector on the playbook.  I recently downgraded to OS1.0.8.6067 and have found that I cannot access any app remotely.  

I find that when I try to load the debuger page it shows this:


  • Open...


and when I select the open I get:


Broken Web Inspector


I am using the '-d' tag when compiling and I am using chrome to access it.  Is there a problem with OS1.0.8 or is it me causing it?  I have gotten in some instances the inital page to say 'AppName' (for what ever the app's name is) but it still leads me to the same broken web inspector.

Re: Web Inspector Porblems

I only found remote web inspector started working in 2.0.    You can run the browser locally on the playbook to look at it but that isn't as convenient.

Re: Web Inspector Porblems

There is an issue with newer versions of chrome that they have changed their implementation of web sockets which makes them incompatible with the ones used in our remote web inspector. Can youy try in a different webkit browser?

Re: Web Inspector Porblems

I stand corrected.   Remote inspector worked from my Mac Safari to both 1.0.8 and 2.0.
