    I always thought that palmpad was the better name choice...

It seems the TP Go is developed specially for china market(btw, since the trademark "Touchpad" has already been registered in china, the official name of TP Go was to be "Palmpad". How lovely!).
    Fortunately, the other owners are also all big fans of webOS.
    Add them to the three Touchpad GO owners I've been able to uncover in Northern California who won't part with the devices (no, not even for an arm and a leg), that brings my tally to about 6 or 7 of these devices in use out in the wild so far.

    In a year or two we might see 1 or 2 of them pop up on eBay or CL, if we're lucky. I dream of that day coming much sooner, like maybe tomorrow!

    Seriously, which company, large or small would only produce -->10 'prototypes' in a potential market of 100's of 000's +?

    Anyone got any idea of an industry 'standard' (ie. cost effective) minimum production-run of any such new components required?
    Would the Touchpad Motherboard be small enough to have also doubled-up as the 'Go' board?
    My implication is that there may well be inventory of 'Go'-specific parts still unassembled, as a result of the HP 'indecisions' (read 'chaos'!) around that time?

    Be a shame to think they would all simply be destroyed/recycled!

    EDIT: Later, OK make that #11 'prototypes' according to 'aboutblank's' post below!

    "Go-Go-Guys!"

    There is plenty of information about the Meta-Doctor, but to develop a reliable solution for a device like this, I would seriously need to have it in hand (that wasn't a joke).

    To try and tell you how to do something remotely would risk being able to use that unique device, since we don't have a working doctor for it.

    Hi Rod, I just remembered a guy selling his TP Go. Have a look at my post up here↑↑↑, are you interested?

    I've used Google Translate to read all the blog posts.They've already copied the rom off of it. It looks like they're in the process of making clones otherwise known as knock-offs.

    hmmmmmmmm

    This raises an interesting question.

    Given HP's case webOS indecision ( which has given some of us indigestion ), would we be willing to purchase Knock-offs just to get our hands on a different form factor?

    Good question. If I can't buy an HP GO am I willing to buy a Palmpad GO?

    Even more interesting is the fact they copied the rom.

    I was expecting to see knock-offs of the Touchpad GO running Android eventually and those may be forthcoming, but if they try to put a cooked version of webOS on them, well, there's legalities. Doubt legal fears will stop them though. Illegal copies of Win 7 are all over the place running on ePad knock-offs.

    Did you get anywhere with the tar files? What is the name of the 2 tar files you have? The larger will be likely be WebOS.tar, or at least that it the intended name of it. The second file is the more complicated. It is the customisation build. This contains different files depending on the product and intended country of sale. You should compare its contents to the contents of the att.tar file from the 4g file you have.

    Anyway, something for you to try (in Linux of course). There is no script available for you TP obviously. I think the closest script available for your TP is the att 3.0.4 one. This is of course a little risky but see if the jar file can be produced safely.
    In terminal;
    git clone git://git.webos-internals.org/tools/meta-doctor.git
    cd meta-doctor
    mkdir downloads

    copy the 2 tar files into downloads. Name the large file webOS.tar, the small one att.tar
    Open meta-doctor/scripts/meta-att-touchpad-3.0.4. On line 58 add the following to the args; "CUSTOM_CARRIER_TARBALL=downloads/att.tar CUSTOM_WEBOS_TARBALL=downloads/webOS.tar"

    then make sure your current working dir is meta-doctor, then run ./scripts/meta-att-touchpad-3.0.4

    Hao yun!

    Edit: It might be safer for you to manually copy the tar files into the jar file and overwrite the existing files. However the recoverytool application probably wont like this and might refuse to use them.

    I was about to register my touchpad and realized the full options of touchpad products that were meant to be registered. Touchpad go 3G was one of them. Take a look

    Some nice products there - I've just registered my webOS products, too. You can also register your TouchStone and Bluetooth keyboard, but unfortunately they've no serial number so you can't finish the registration.

    People purchasing TouchPad knockoffs that run real webOS.. that'd be hilarious.

    I might consider it, though, if it all works, and if it can run real webOS.

    As someone who's bought Shanzai tablets before (basically China's "Knockoff Mecca"), no, you don't want to buy a knockoff unless you want something with no warranty, substandard parts usually made afterhours in the factory from the materials that didn't make the grade, dangerous batteries and other parts in some cases (with no legal recourse), and zero resale value.

    And yeah, legal issues with upstream suppliers manufacturers are why you don't see an iPad knockoff actually running iOS; they're all hacks made to look like iOS. if someone did that with webOS, you can bet there'd be legal hell to pay and massive contracts cancelled since usually these knockoffs are an inside job at these factories. Android being open-source is why 90% of the knockoff tablets out there use it. Check out Merimobiles.com sometime for plenty of examples.

    I'll reiterate: I wouldn't, and I don't expect to see any make it to market anyway.

    Interesting. I registered my Touchpad GO and at the confirmation page they tell my that the model name is FB441UA. But on my device I found it's FB386UA.

    What's the number under the HP BTKB battery cover then?

    Mine says: 'Serial No: XXXXXXXXXXXXXX'

    You'll also need to know the DMMODEL and DMCARRIER values, and use the CUSTOM_MODEL_CHECK and CUSTOM_CARRIER_CHECK values to enable the doctor to recognise the TP Go tokens and allow installation to proceed.

    But still, I've uploaded the two tar files to my skydrive so that anyone who wants to do some research could get it. I compressed them into 3 rar volumes.
    Firstly, you should not redistribute those files publicly - they are not open source, and you do not have a license to distribute them.

    Secondly, I have made some guesses at some values (DMMODEL and DMCARRIER) and created a scripts/meta-opal-doctor which you can use to experiment with if you are extremely brave. You'll need to read the script to work out where to put things (I'm not interested in detailed hand-holding unless there's a device coming my way somehow).

    Having said that, I personally would not use homebrew applications or patches on a device for which I did not have a verified working webOS doctor, so creating and testing a webOS doctor solution would be the first thing I would personally do ... but do it *extremely* carefully and with full understanding of each step before performing it.

    Sorry about that. Would you please remove the link in the quotation area please? Thanks!
    btw, the DMMODEL is HSTNS-I32C and DMCARRIER is ROW.
