Well, I've somehow managed to break my browser.
When I try to open a webpage I get the loading circle and the browser dims, then it'll stop loading for a sec, and then it will go back to the loading circle / dim. Repeat infinitely.
Other apps seem to work fine. I was able to open the Facebook app, see recent statuses, and like one - so the internet connection still works.
Since my device is not bricked and I don't want to lose apps/settings unnecessarily, I'd like to to be able to fix this without doing a restore/wipe of any kind (obviously only if possible)
I'm not sure exactly what I did, so here's all the stuff I've been up to between when it was working and now.
1) Installed OpenSSH
2) Installed Joe and nano text editors
3) Edited the /var/palm/event.d/mobi.optware.openssh file to allow for ssh passwords
4) Edited /etc/hostname to change the hostname of the device
5) found out the brower wasn't working
6) returned /etc/hostname to "webos-device"
7) Uninstalled openSSH
still not working
The built in browser in the facebook app won't load webpages (same problem). The body of emails won't load.
Also, I can't seem to novacom into the device anymore.
Before all I had to do was type novacom and it would connect
Now it lists all the command line options for novacom.
I'm not sure how to specify a device with novacom, but -l returns:
matt@matt-laptop:~$ novacom -l
