How did you install your update? Through recovery, or doing it a different way?

As long as you can boot to something like TWRP it is probably not bricked.
Run the Doc from a command line (Windows:cmd.exe Mac: Terminal Linux:some shell).
Code:
java -jar <your doctor.jar file>
Post the output here.

thanks for the replies.
i will run that command as soon as i get back home.
as far as the how, i used the goomanager. downloaded a tenderloin ROM. used the flash button at the bottom of the goomanager ROM flash page. When it rebooted into TWRP, that was the only partition i could access. and the
TWRP console viewer showed that when the AOKP was trying to boot it could not access the SD card or any of the other partitions

You should typically install new ROMs from recovery instead of relying on the GUI. If you can still access whatever media the ROM downloaded to, you can try again from the recovery.

If you're running webOS Doctor, make sure you're in USB Recovery mode (bootie) and not Android recovery.

You did the same thing as me. It ended up corrupting my usb and I couldn't load webOS or android. I tried every trick in the book off several forums and nothing worked. I eventually found one on XDA that had 2 extra bits of code that got me back up and running. If you haven't fixed yours yet take a look at this post...

Then the java environment is not set. I don't have windows.
Java is probably installed somewhere in C:/Program Files/??
You need to include the path to the java.exe into your PATH-variable.
I can't help you with your java problem.
And you need to unzip the doctor. It should have a .jar extension.
Try a different computer.

You're overdoing it. Try to run the Doctor regularly at first, then go on if there are problems. Are you on the screen with the USB logo (on your device)? If not, Novacom will not recognize it. Reboot and hold Vol+ while doing so to get into USB Recovery mode. As for Novacom, it should install automatically. Post back if there's an error.

Hello;
if i run the doc normally it will put the tablet in the usb state. (there will be a big usb symbol on the tablet).
i can only get into the usb state or by holding the home and power button until the tablet asks me to let the buttons go. next is the TWRP where i can choose the webOS recovery from the boot loader

ok running the doctor normally i get to 8% and than i get the "we were unable to reset your phone"
i assume the doctor sees my tablet, i can hear the windows sound for connecting and dropping a device and the tablet goes from the usb symbol to the hp logo in the middle of the screen

Now you're going. What's the log like? (Look in %temp% for something that contains webOS in the file name.)

In Windows, not Linux. Type %temp% into Explorer (the file manager).
