    I just recharged my touchpad after leaving it dead for about a week, and when I unlocked it, it claimed I was no longer signed into a Palm Profile and would need to be restored to sign in again, and promptly shut itself off. Is this situation salvageable in any way? I've been putting off backing it up out of laziness, so that's clearly going to be an issue

    what about trying to use the devicetool.jar while locked ?

    There's a question mark in your title, so I'd suggest you check if the device has actually wiped itself and if not, find a way to back up what's there.

    No, it has, it took me to the setup screen, like when I just got it, or ran it through a doctor

    My Pre3 did this a couple of years ago. I never did figure out why that happened. :/

    There was a "memory full" or "database full" error that popped up on my Go after I'd had it for a few months. It prompted me to restart the device. When I did, I had to log in to my profile again, re-download everything, the works, back when the profile servers were still up.

    I don't remember the exact wording of the error, but it was one discussed here that other people had seen. Did you get any notice of something like that before the phone/Go restarted?

    All of my TouchPads did that once during their lifetime before the servers were deactivated :-S

    Yes, I seem to remember some sort of error like that when my phone wiped itself.

    Had the same issue 3 days ago with the TP rebooting and going into First Use mode.

    Thought it was done but reloaded the WebOS and used the devicetool2.jar and it works again!

    Took an hour from beginning to end but pretty straightforward to get it going.

    Here are the full directions:

    Best news is all files were still there.

    Yeah, that "Database full" thing was a ridiculous thing. And it didn't even have to do with the database partition, I don't think. When one of the /var partitions gets full, the system just forces you to do a wipe and reload it all. I mean, I guess they thought that's one way to clear out crap, but it's about the most heavy handed way of possibly doing it. I know I had two of mine just randomly reset themselves, without my noticing the DB Full thing ..
