    Would it be possible to re-engineer a doctor file to include the devicetool process so that it would simplify re-installs going forward? Or at least a splash page to direct users here.and what to look for? Granted HP should have planned for this during their slow self immolation of WebOS, but really what went right back then?

    Actually with a meta doctor this is fairly easy. Ideally it would have all the critical patches & fixes included but that would be a bit more difficult ;-)

    Fairly easy, except I've never once seen it happen... Been waiting years now.

    I really wish I learned how to code. I would do it myself.

    That webOS "isn't dead yet", doesn't make it less of a zombie. It would be nice if there were easier solutions to the maintenance, but it's part of the price we pay.

    I suppose there is enough information out there for someone to do this. If anyone tries and makes a guide, pivotCE will happily publish it, not least because (if I understand it correctly) a meta-doctor could be one kind of total back up solution or at least a freshly setup and bypassed device could be used to make a personalised doctor.

    If days would only have more hours.... I prefer to spend my limited time available on getting LuneOS in a better position to become a daily driver So that's what I'm dedicating time to mainly If I have some time (not very likely) I would be able to do something like that It's not technically difficult, just a chore

    Anyone have instructions for reviving a Touchpad with Mac OS X? Thanks!
  9. #110  
    Can you provide some context as to it's state & why it needs reviving?

    The first step is usually charging a flat battery. If too low, the charging circuit won't work. One trick is using a standard 1A, 5V phone charge or computer USB port to trickle charge - maybe for up to a week. Once there's enough charge for it to wake up, you can switch to the TP charger.

    If it's a software thing, then describe the behaviour. Many of the tools are java programs, so putting that on the MAC would be the first step.

    I'm trying to follow the original instructions from fuddy but I've ran into a few problems. First, the devicetool link is broken (and the dropbox file that was later posted has been removed). Second, when I double click on WebOS.tar I get this error message: The system cannot find the path specified.

    Can anyone help me out?

    by any chance would you still happen to have a valid link to download the devicetool.jar file? thanks.

    do you have a new link? i get a 404 file not found message.

    I just completed a restart of a Touch pad using fuddy78's step by step guide from 4/26/15, and it worked perfectly except for finding the
    devicetool.jar file. I could not get past the Language screen on the touch pad and now I have webos.
    Now I need help regarding upgrading to Android. Which version do you recommend and why. Should I use Touchpad Toolbox or do it the earlier way? Thanks for any and all comments.
    Thank you very much to fuddy78...the fix is a thing of genius and easy to follow!

    Hi Fuddy, I'm trying to bypass activation on a Verizon Palm Pixi Plus, but the Novacom v1.4.1 drivers won't install. After I download the .jar Novacom installer, open it in Java and click "Install Novacom," a dialog appears that says "Downloading Novacom Drivers," but then a message box pops up that says "ERROR: Driver installation failed." I'm trying to install it on a 64-bit Windows 7 PC. I successfully bypassed activation on a Verizon Palm Pre Plus in early 2016 using these instructions (thank you!) and think I ran into some trouble with the Novacom drivers then, but I was using a different PC and can't remember what I did. What should I do to get around this problem? Thanks!

    You could try this: Tip: Edit Your Hosts File for Access to Old Palm Servers | pivotCE

    I think the clue might be the different PC. I think the installer downloads the drivers from the old servers. These are officially offline, but still out there...

    ...that said, I tested and got the same error. I was also unable to download a webOS doctor (1 attempt). I pinged a couple of IP addresses and the first web address (to check the hosts rerouting). There is a response...

    I guess someone smarter than me will have to confirm if the files are still available.

    It seems I have a copy of the drivers, but it's too big to attach. I'll look into uploading it somewhere.

    If anyone already has this stored online somewhere & can post a link, that would be helpful.

    WebOSQuickInstall 4.6.0 has the Novacom drivers included, you might give that one a try.
