    Ensure the TP is in Developer Mode. Connect the TP to the computer using the usb cable but don't enter USB Mode on the TP. On your computer, Open Novaterm and enter the four commands below (on mine, I was able to open novaterm by going to C:\Program Files\Palm, Inc\Terminal\ and double clicking Novaterm.bat. If opening that way, you'll have to click File->Connect in the Novaterm window. A window will launch asking you to confirm the TP device. Just click OK.. If you've done it correctly, you should be at a command prompt showing root@Touchpadname: / #):
    umount /dev/mapper/store-media
    mkfs.msdos /dev/mapper/store-media
    mount /dev/mapper/store-media
    reboot
    It will take between 5-10 minutes for the TP to reboot, so don't panic at the longer reboot. You'll notice that the HP logo will start the standard brightening/dimming on the screen. When it comes back up, you will be able to enter USB mode on your TP and browse the drive using windows.

    That arithmetic error is a pain to deal with, stupid windows, so in cmd type in:



    This will give you root access to your touchpad and not get that arithmetic error. Afterwards do follow the steps in that post.

    Make sure the novacomm stuff in in your C:\program files\palm\sdk\bin directory just in case.
    Im confused at how to get passed the arithmetic error. When i "continue passed the errors in novaterm i get a "cannot connect to the server" prompt. and when i go to "Start" > CMD > novacom -t open tty:// i receive a "'novacom' is not recognized as an internal or external command" What cmd are you entering this command into? thank you for any assistance

    You need to 'cd' to the Novacom installation directory (mentioned in your quote). Typing 'novacom' directly is only valid if it's in your PATH, and that's done automatically only with the webOS SDK.

    BTW, has anyone tried to fs-ck instead of mkdosfs? And also, doing the above in a live environment is not recommended. Boot into the installer ramdisk and do it fro there instead.

    Hello,

    I've tried

    umount /dev/mapper/store-media
    And got :
    umount: can't umount /media/internal: Device or resource busy
    I did reboot the Touchpad, it's not connected in USB mode.
    Do you have any idea how I could solve this issue ?

    Thank you for your help.

    Best regards,
    Seb

    Obviously you should not be trying to do that while the system is booted. Reboot to the installer ramdisk and try again. You may want to use SCP/SFTP to copy out files from /media/internal if your TP can still read from the partition, before formatting..

    I will make a backup. Then do it again in a low level.
    I wasn't aware of the partition format.
    I believe I will have issue with Android then :-(
    Anyway Thank You.
