SOLVED - Changing to a different computer did the trick. I don't know why, quick install ran off the laptop and installed preware, but would not work with web doctor.
CHARGING - when the TP was turned off with power, home, and down volume it would not charge. I left it in the never ending reboot cycle and it did charge.
I guess I've done the impossible. I've bricked my touchpad. Actually it is not bricked, it is stuck in a never ending boot loop.
I've had it for all of 3 days, installed preware, uberkernel, xecutah, internalz, kalemsoft media player, etc. I've applied all the patches recommended in the get started guide, and patched libflashplayer.so to work with hulu. Everything went fine until I read this post.
I got the shares working from the command line, and decided to figure out why it didn't work in fstab. My mistake. I should have been happy like it was. My only excuse is it was way too late last night and I wasn't thinking clearly.
I EDITED MOUNTALLFS.SH IN /ETC/INIT.D
I paged through the file until I came to the part where the comment was something about mounting the non volatile? file systems. The command executed was
mount -a -t vfat,ext3,xxxxx
I added ,cifs saved and rebooted.
It has been stuck in a boot loop ever since. Neither the doctor nor quickinstall recognize it. I can semi put it in usb mode by holding the up volume switch while it reboots. When I plug it into my XP laptop, it beeps like a usb device is plugged in or unplugged, every 10 seconds or so. It is not accessable as a usb drive. My linux desktop has no reaction when it is plugged in.
I can force a faster reboot by holding center and power for 15 seconds. The only way to get it out of semi usb mode is hold center, power, and down volume for 15 seconds. That combo is the only way to shut it off.
Anyone have any ideas?
