you might be able to test a weird way if its novacom or something else by trying the emulator that comes with the sdk, if you run the pre3 or touchpad emulated environment, its automatically on dev mode, and in webosquickinstall the "device" shown if it works appears as "Emulator".

if the emulator works then im guessing we can eliminate a novacom issue? if the emulator works then we can progress to cables/java/any other route, try find ways to definatly eliminate each one as a suspect?

or a dev/guru could probably show a much faster/easier method of narrowing the suspects, if i wasnt sure of novacom when i had newer versions of windows i just tried the same thing using ubuntu, also ive no idea if they make a difference for usb type operations but i know using my pre3 cable on my touchpad has had the device not appear correctly until i used the touchpad cable, so nowadays i have some small tape on the cables showing a T for touchpad and 3 for pre3.

If we're going the SDK route, might as well use palm-install if WOSQI fails.

hey anyone, quick question:

what's the status with the requirement of being in DEVMODE to use WOQI (or Preware for that matter)?

because i just got done doing a fresh doctoring to create a Frankenpre, and while it was still connected, i just opened up WOQI, and sure enough, it recognized the device. So i installed the DevMode toggle switch and Preware, and sure enough, they're on here and working.

even more interestingly, when i went to turn on DM with the toggle, it behaved like it was already on. it didn't reboot.

does the latest version of WOQI require devmode?
was it already in this mode from the doctor pkg i just used?

(i put the question in bold so future searchers may find this if someone posts an answer. i couldn't find one with that question wording in google)

thanx!

You used MetaDoctor, right? If so, chances are there was a part in the scripts that activated Novacom as part of the flashing. Developer Mode is required for communicating with a Novacom host because it starts the device NovacomD so the two ends will communicate.

How did you install novacom ?

I have also Windows 8 x64 and WebOSQuick install 4.4.0 don't detect my touchpad.

(I manually install novacom and added path to novacom.exe)

I don't understand, Novacom can find my device:

Quote:
C:\Windows\system32>"C:\Program Files\Palm, Inc\novacom.exe" -l
53001 2887f8fd584bda55506d1c399652619be3d7b41f usb topaz-linux
But WOSQI don't find my device !

Have you any idea ?

Hi All,

I followed the guides but my Pre 3 would very occasionally connect, but mostly not then when it did the connection error would appear.

I have Kaspersky internet security 2013 running on Windows 8 x64 and it was the AV stopping the device connecting.

Just a FYI, disable your AV if you are having issues with your device connecting (remember to reboot post Novocom install) that fixed it for me!

I have the same problem. I downloaded Webos quick install from this site, but when I'm trying to install NOVACOM DRIVER (would you like to install it now-I CLICK yes) it tells me there is an error. I have the last version of Java, I don't know what is the reason why it keeps giving me this error. I tried to connect my Touchpad via URL to my PC, and it gives me a "No devices found" message, and it tells me that i need to install Novacom. I would appreciate any input in this matter.

I am having the same problem as all those above. My wife's Veer lost screen functionality so I moved her profile to a new Veer and wanted to use WOSQI to install Preware to get her new phone "patched up" like her old one. I downloaded the latest WOSQI onto my PC and the Novacom drivers from this thread, and am having the same problems; WOSQI won't recognize my wife's Veer and when I click on "update Novacom" I get the same error message.

Jason, we need your wizardry! Could you please help us out?

Use Universal Novacom Installer to install Novacom.

Thanks, but I tried that as well earlier today. I uninstalled the Novacom that's in this thread and tried to use the universal installer and it just hung. It sits on the message "Installing driver..." and "Initializing". Is that pulling from Palm/HP servers? Is there a way to confirm that they are working?
