I thought that you might want to know how this person did what they need to do to get it on a carrier network
i have a friend who has a touchpad 4g and was trying to get it to work on a BSNL network and they try to get it to work over in India and this is how they got it to work. Here are the steps.
"Developer Environment" in my machine. Installing SDK, etc. In touchpad we need to give
"webos20090606" in "Just Type" where you would get a link for developer mode. Enter without giving password.
And when both are connected, going through
"Terminal mode" from machine would give us the root access to the device (may be novaterm or other).
"/etc/carrierdb/carrierdb.json" should have an entry for each of the carrier worldwide.
Which is "Not" always possible for a manufacturer to populate "ALL". The one we miss is "HP/Palm" did not give
a provision to configure carrier provider (by user).
This file has to be moved through USB to machine where we have to edit. This done by
cp command in terminal into Touchpad's general folders (may be downloads) and then we shall access that
folder from our machine through USB for copying into our machine.
"http://digitalunlock.com/webos/carrierdb/index.html" creates data for us when we give
"BSNL", its APN (bsnlnet), its MCC (404) and its MNC (80) in appropriate places.
And if needed we may have to fine tune the settings on that screen.,
The created data need to be copy pasted into the carrierdb.json at the bottom of the file (at our machine).
To move the file back to the place needs read-write access to the root folders of Linux inside Touchpad.
So, after placing the file into the Touchpad's download folder (through USB from our machine), in
Terminal, we need to remount the file system like
"mount -o rw,remount /"
Then cp command will be allowed to write into /etc/carrierdb folder.
After properly coming out of "Developer mode" and "USB Drive mode", reboot the Touchpad.
