Client software soon to be released on the beta site.

The client software that has been developed for the main site has been in development for a little while now, and now there’s a version for the beta site, which is based off the client software for the main site.  The client software for the beta site should be released very shortly, probably within the next couple of weeks, if not less.

There are a couple things that you must take in to consideration if you plan on downloading, installing and using the client. These include, but are not limited to the following:

  • If you have an account on the main site, it will not work on the beta site and vice-versa. The account system is not shared.
  • The client for the main site and beta site resemble each other very close, so be careful of what you choose and use.
  • Both clients are bare-minimum as far as features and functionality go and provide. This should change with updates as they become available.

If this interests you, please keep an eye out on this site to see what’s new, what’s changed and more. If you want to see what’s going on with the beta site, you’re more than welcome to visit CharlieWARE SOFTWARE (Beta) at

CharlieWARE SOFTWARE for Microsoft Windows

For those that have been visiting frequently and keeping an eye out for changes and updates that are being done, you may or may not have noticed that the changes and updates have become much slower than normal. While this is true, there’s a perfectly good reason for it.

There’s a lot of changes and modifications being made behind the scenes, some of which may be noticed by those that are not logged in, those that are logged in, and globally throughout the site. the main reason for the slow down in changes and updates being done to the site is because of an application that I’m developing.chware-1st-pic

As you can see in the picture, it will be a Windows-based application that will allow you to connect to the site without using your own web browser, and will also provide you with benefits, features and functionality that is not available on the site.

All that you can see in the picture is fully functional, and without any issues or problems. However, there’s quite a bit that must be done on that screen, and beyond before it’s released to the public to download.

I am however, going to be looking for a small group of individuals to help with the software before it’s released, and the release is planned for sometime in June. You will of course be able to find out the latest information, news and updates about this through this site.

Samsung Galaxy S4 (5.0.1) update from Verizon.

Since long before the Lollipop update for the Samsung Galaxy S4 became available, I was getting the “Software update is temporarily unavailable. Try again later.” message, which should say permanently since it happened when my phone was 4.4.2 and continues after updating to 5.0.1.

If you’re experiencing the same issue and are wondering how I did get 5.0.1 installed, there’s one way to do it. There’s a few sites around that suggest replacing the SIM of the phone, I’ve been hearing that you can borrow someone else’s SIM, but the way I actually did it, made sense.

There was one small problem, I couldn’t get the the phone to reconize as an installation medium to install the required software. So I used my wife’s phone for a few minutes, and got the Verizon Update Software installed within the matter of seconds.

This said, I was off with the installation of Android 5.0.1 for my Galaxy S4 phone, and after 20-30 minutes, all was good. The only problem I have encountered is that temporarily unavailable for updates. So, the thing more than likely will need to be updated through software from either OS X or Windows. I provided the following URL for you to see what’s needed; though I don’t know if you can actually download the software or not from Verizon or Samsung.
