    Ok, so I ended up somehow borking WebOS on my Touchpad 32gb and I tried to run WebOS Doctor to restore it. I tried this numerous times and it completes fine but then I get the HP logo for a few seconds and then it looks like it restarts. So pretty much, the HP logo keeps flashing on and off.

    I know this device is next to impossible to brick so can anyone point me into the another way to restore the device to factory? I can get into usb mode so I should be able to manually format/fix WebOS.

    I setup Archlinux on the touchpad alongside Android/WebOS and then when I rebooted into WebOS, all of my icons were missing so I tried to tried to restore it using WebOS and that is when this started happening. I am currently in USB mode but do not know what else to do considering webos Doctor is not working. I run LInux on my desktop machines but do have a Win7 partition if needed.

    Can anyone point me into the right direction to manually restore WebOS without WebOS doctor or another alternative? Novaterm and Novacom both work fine so I can interact with the tablet.

    Also, here is the output from WebOS Doctor: http://pastebin.com/xvm9KN74
    INFO: Flash End time (Success)1325186201870
    I also tried removing Android using ACMEUninstaller but I got the error: "Cannot Start LVM and Reboot!"

    In novaterm, try to restore the file structure.
    I think I would try
    lvm
    lvs
    delete any volumes you have added like android, cm-data, arch-root, etc with
    "lvremove store/name-of-volume"
    then resize the media volume with
    "lvresize -L +90000M store/media" this might fail with the 90000 number and you will need to use numbers smaller than what is available until you grow it to the max
    Then try to doctor it again.

    I have run into several problems after playing with CM7 and Arch and had to do something like this before.
    Tweak it 'til it breaks, then learn how to fix it. Linux Is For Everyone (L.I.F.E.)

    I had this exact same problem, and the first problem is getting the communication between the root Linux of the touchpad and your computer.

    Here's my thread
    (I will update it with the full details soon).

    Ok, I've updated the thread now... but please consider that I don't really know much about the linux commands I used, I simply read many guides and created my own method. It is probably not the best way to do this, but it got my TP back when I thought it was dead!
