My touchpad was getting kind of hinky... it literally lost all my bookmarks and emails. I'd done so much that I decided to doctor and start fresh being more selective with my programs and patches. USB mode wouldn't go so no doctor. In my haste I got frustrated and did a full erase...

Now I'm borked because I don't have any homebrew or USB mode. I figured after settling in my touchpad's USB mode was borked by either the network drive mapping I was trying to do or the mount for my Ubuntu chroot.

But now that I'm wiped and USB mode is still not working I don't know how to get things working correctly. It goes into USB update mode fine, but the computer doesn't see it at all (not on either computer on any port). I can't try to get into any terminal because novaterm and WOSQI won't see it... I'm quite stuck.
