    I thought there was only supposed to be a password on retail demo units?

    I think you can just click through it by pressing "Submit" without populating the password field. I was able to get into Developer Mode without entering a password.

    just hit the button and ignore the password.

    Is there anyway to remove to developer mode password once you've enabled one?

    Seems like the password I added to on Touchpad's developer mode might be preventing the unit from launching webOS quick install...

    This phased me. After setting the dev mode password (cos I know what my kids are like) I couldn't access any install tools, and couldn't clear the password.

    The solution on Windows seems to be to use the novacom command from the command line:

    novacom -r <password> -c login

    prior to allow an "authenticated" session

    I've not yet tried this on linux, but hope to soon

    password can not be removed at this time once it is created. Also, I have found out that novaterm has an issue with the password once it has been set and the only workaround I have found is WOSQI at this time which can store your password and uses novacom to access the TP.

    Put your device in Developer mode.
    From your PC download the Preware installer from http://get.preware.org
    Run the Preware installer while the WebOS device is connected with the USB cable to your PC.

    Make sure you're using the current version of WebOS Quick Install.

    The current WOSQI fully supports DevMode passwords. It will auto-detect if a password is needed and will give you a popup window to enter it. Moreover, there's the option to remember the password, so you don't need to enter it everytime

    Hmm I dont agree with the last remark. WOSQI 4.2.3 freezes when i start it if Devmode is on with password. No popup to fill in my password

    I suggest you try posting in the official wosqi thread and look through the potential solutions. It should be noted, however, that my previous post is true and that beta testing on a password protected TouchPad was conducted successfully.

    I rebooted from Win7 64 to Ubuntu and now it does work. I guess it must be something in windows. I will post this in WOSQi thread.

    I turned devmode on in order to install preware. Once preware is installed, is there any benefit or reason for keeping devmode on? What are the benefits/drawbacks to keeping it turned on?

    Developer mode is only accessible from the USB cable so i do not believe at this time that there is any hard at all.

    I have a Pre- from launch day and turned DevMode on immediately upon Homebrewing needs and never turned it off and now I have done the same with the Touchpad DevMode. It is convenient when i want to just plug in the device for whatever reason and extract something from it. I don't have to turn on DevMode everytime I want to novaterm etc.
