All of the instructions (boot image, tokens, mounting drives, etc) are for the Pre (the castle image, TouchPad is the topaz image). I don't think they will work. Did you get a chance to read the error log I attached from the doctor installer? There is one in post 16 and one in post 17.
Ok, it looks like that is the procedure if you can't boot into recovery mode (USB logo screen). My TouchPad will boot into recovery mode so the primary method it outlines did not work. I was able to use the alternate method to get to the command line on the TouchPad. Problem is I have been able to do that all along since it is exactly the same as the instructions given on this page (under Doctor disconnects at 8%):
I also followed the instructions at the bottom of that page to recreate the TouchPad's file system and still the doctor won't work.
As a last resort I repeated all of the steps while my computer is booted into Linux (not Windows 7). I'm in the middle of running the doctor now. Hopefully this works. If not I'm going to have to SRO the device.
Ok, just spoke with HP and they elevated my issue.
I also noticed that my swap partition is 112MB larger than the one on my wife's working TouchPad. Her swap partition is 400MB and mine is 512MB. Her TouchPad has not been altered. It looks like the extra space came from the media drive. Could this be causing the problem and how do I fix it if it is?
Sorry about your odyssey (?) - don't really know how to help but I keep wondering which version of the doctor you're running - is there any chance an earlier version would work to get logged into your account?
Thanks for the tip. I used the devicetool.jar to bypass the first use screen. Then I installed impostah. I tried to activate my webOS profile on the device and it gave me an invalid serial number error. I checked my device serial number in the Device Info tab and it is missing. So now I need to know how to re-input my serial number.
I installed "Device Profile Service Override" on my TouchPad. Then I changed the value of the serial number value to the actual device's serial number (it was blank) in Impostah. This allowed me to log into my webOS profile in Impostah. Then I deleted the dummy profile that was on the device. The device rebooted and I was finally able to log into my webOS profile!! I selected the back-up that was 4 days old and now my TouchPad is humming along again in webOS!
Thanks Remolten for your suggestions. I would also like to thank the Homebrew folks for their excellent apps!
