    Hi,

    I received today a new unlocked AT&T Pre3 and when I connect it to my laptop WinXP 32, it goes directly to charging. I installed Novacom but when connecting pre3 nothing happens. I upgraded java and uninstalled Novacom then run the universal installer but it hangs at initializing. Obviously, WOSQI cannot recognize it and when it asks to resinstall novacom, it fails. Please help if you can. I need to get this ready before the clould shut down.

    I was able to put the device in dev mode using #*DEVMODE# and this is what I get when I connect to PC:

    - USB Composite device ready to use
    - Reduce CDC Abstract Control Model R-ACm - Fail
    - Generic Serial - Pending

    NOTE: webos20090606 gets me into dev mode but stays greyed out when I click submit.

    Thanks

    Did you turn on developer mode? ( that was not there earlier right? )

    Yes. I managed to get it working fine. I reset the phone then bypassed activation and suddenly everything back to normal. Now, when I run WOQI, I found no packages, all empty except themes. I need preware. Sorry I was away from the forum for a while so I do not know if the feeds still exist.

    Copy this into the "hosts" file:
    Code:
    23.4.17.24	cdn.downloads.palm.com
    195.22.200.42	downloads.help.palm.com
    140.211.169.161	ipkg.preware.org
    And then proceed as usual. Everything should work.

    This fixes Preware, webOS Doctor downloads and Palm SDK/driver download links

    Thanks, that worked. It looked like HP changed their IP addresses.
