Tested this device last night. But feel disappointment to it.
1.Can connect PC with usb cable. But it shows pre screen like my pre2/pre3. Looks funny......
2. Can set up developmer mode. But can not connect WQI 3.1.4/4.0.3/4.0.4/4.3.1/4.4.0....Do not know how to install webos software....
3. Forget upgrade os/Forget the doctor. But hold the power+Volume up can see the big usb. Want to upgrade it with HP tool and want to flash it to 3.0.5 in that moment... But maybe that's the last touchpad "Panda" in the world. So hold it
4. checking the mainboard as same as the common 32G wifi version...also see wifi cable..

Yes. You caught up it. There are some Novainstall 77/79/82/83/85/86/87/88/89/91/92/97 version. The latest novainstall 97 updated 2011-7-22. I just used novainstall 77 to flash my touchpadgo. Do not dare to flash it with novainstall 97. There are some selection that do not know how to use.
The following is personal thinking. I saw that lot of question mark battery touchpads are solved by TPbrick. That's fine . I got the special file call "How to flash Webos Image with Android on Tapaz". It show some steps like Tpbrick. "Like reboot device and the device should enter DFU mode by default.Install DFU driver as the following step""Install PC USB driver for DFU...."But never talk about linux pc in it.
I am using IBM X61 running windows XP(Very old but flash touchpadgo well). No need to connect to Linux PC to search some softwares.
All I do still to learn about it and try it. Because nobody teach me how to use this software......

This feels pre-3.0.0. They would likely have installed the Enyo version of Device Info if it were anything recent. I wonder what the big Apple icon does, though.

@lemanho: JD works wonders on .jar files.

1. download and compare 3.0.0/3.0.2/3.0.4/3.0.5 rom for touchpad wifi version.All use hp.tar (21852160). 3.0.0 webos.tar( 184637440).3.0.2 webos.tar (198215680). 3.0.4 webos.tar (203673600). 3.0.5 webos (201646080)
can look for it in resources file from rom....
2. downloard and compare 3.0.2/3.0.2(1)/3.0.4/3.0.4(1)/3.0.5 rom for touchpad 3G+wifi version. All use att.tar (52654080). 3.0.2 webos.tar (228495360). 3.0.2(1) webos.tar (228495360).3.0.4 webos.tar (233963520). 3.0.4(1) webos.tar (233953280). 3.0.5 webos.tar (231925760)....
3. Need two tar files when try to use nova device install software to flash hp device. must put above hp.tar or att.tar into local base image. and put the webos.tar into local customization image that you want...
4. So Can I do this?? take a touchpad wifi version and flash the wifi+3G rom in it ??? Because it doesn't need doctor and just flash the device directly.......Still looking for dead touchpad to try this way.


Annouce again. Big risk to flash device and will damaged the mainboard if one step wrong. I know that somebody had damaged the touchpadgo mainboard .....

UNBELIEVABLE........Reading "How to flash webos image with android on Topaz" 9 pages document issued on Oct 11th 2010 by HP again today . It sounds like
Need to prepare
1. Webos image for topaz and the emm_appsboot.mbn file for webos
2. DFU utilities.
3.Novacom utilities
4.NDI Utilities (That means Nova Device Installer. ..I don't understand NDI in the first.so simple...)
after set up lot of java and driver....
pages 4 shows
Install PC USB driver for novacom:
1. unzip novacominstaller_x86.zip in some (Unzipfolder) (i.e.c:/Novacom )
2.Run NovacomInstaller-x86.msi and wait finishing
3. Now you should be able to see bootie running and a palm novacom USB device
Pages 5 shows
Flash webos image with NDI tool:
1.Unzip novainstaller.zip in some (Unzipfolder) (i.e. C:/NDI)
2. Prepare the webos image you want to flash. (i.e. cust-topaz-352340.tar)
3.Launch Novainstaller.jar (Need Java 6 envioronment). and modify defult parameters according to the following screen snapshot and click "Flash Device" button.....
Last page shows
1.After bootie is flashed.you can stay in bootie console mode by holding "Vol Up" key when powering on the device. You can use "Novacom open tty://" or "novaterm" on PC to enter bootie command line console. Also in the mode,you can re-run NDI to re-flash the device......

I have a strange idea that want to flash CM9 rom into touchpad directly.........Very interesting

Had fixed a dead touchpad last night. Want to share it with webos fans. Fix touchpad is easy job not diffcult.
1. Got a dead touchpad. Plug into original charger and after 10 mintues. find still blank and no shinning.
hold power+Home 30seconds. Nothing happened again. ...
2. Connect to PC with cable. show QHSUSB-DLOAD symbol. (lucky.mainboard is ok).
3.Prepare a working battery with over 80 precent power.
4. open back cover carefully and take out the old battery from device. and insert working battery...
5.Assembly screen carefully . hold power nothing...hold power+home nothing happened again ????
6. Open back cover again. disconnect the battery. after one mintue connect again (like pre3 method).
7.Assembly screen again. Hold the power + volume up. Can see the big USB (good luck....)
8. running 3.0.5 doctor and connect it...a dead touchpad got alive.( there are two kind of touchpad released in the market. If no 3G module in the mainboard that's wifi version. Can see 3G module in the mainboard that's 3G+Wifi version).....

Want to talk about question mark touchpad again. The followings are my personal opinion.............
I had touched and watched almost 20 different kinds touchpad and touchpadgo devices . including some non-released devices. But never saw a question mark touchpad.....
1. One touchpad 32G wifi running original andriod OS. No run it after onw week and no power. So plug the original chager into it. No battery symbol show out. just home light shinning very light.After about 5 mintues it reboot by itself. And show HP logo and Qualcomm Logo..Let it chagring........
2. One touchpad 32G wifi running webos 3.0.5 (No CM9/10 in it). No run it and after two months and no power. So need to plug original charger. After a few minutes and show the battery symbol with red line. let it charging.........

All I want to say that question mark touchpad must be running CM7/9/10 and webos os together. Also the power going down to zero for some reasons. So can I make the final decision ?? Is it big power bug for CM7/CM9/CM10 running in the touchpad........???
I don't know...............

Putz... Great job.

About the power going to zero... well, the Pre 3 have a strange bug turn the battery to zero in seconds!

Just a curious... do you know how to reset the battery to make the calibration?

I love it Dr. Battery, but cannot support the Pre 3 and Touchpads...

And; again, great job...


Best Regards...

I am using pre 3 everyday but need to charging everynight too. I heard that the pre 3 battery going down very fast. So need to check software that you are using. Or try to use this battery into the other pre 3. Can tell is it the battery problem or the pre 3 problem...
Want to talk about touchpad battery right now.........
I want to say the touchpad battery is good battery design.(I have touchpad 32 G wifi running webos only. Don't run and place on table 2 months and still have power). So somebody point out question why show out a lot of dead touchpad right now ??
I guess that they are using up CM7/9/10 and flash mainboard many times...
I have a special software to fix and adjust touchpad battery. Let it running like the brand new battery with touchpad. But need to charge it over 20 hours in the first time.
So use touchpad battery with correct way. Do not charger it too much or no charger it for longtime. will hurt the battery especially running CM9/10. must keep it over 10% all the time..........

enjoy it...........

I think I can fix pre 3 battery problem.....
All I do that need to look for a special connector to connect pre 3 battery alone . And find some cables /USB head to connect to PC. And need to connect to battery protector board with a special software.
Not easy................
I hope that you buy a new pre 3 battery directly if battery got a problem...

Upgrade the touchpad 3G/EVT4 64G to ATT 3.0.5 by my way. (Yes. real 64G). Can use china unicom 3G. Can active HP account.When turn of the device. The screen looks a little bit red color base. And see the mesh on it like eye"s lens. Feels this screen more comfortable and more sharp than the other touchpad. I am sure this device is highest hardware design in the touchpad family...............
