    Just got a touchpad and I want the proper backup to come down onto the touchpad.

    Any more suggestions besides doctoring?

    Edit: Palm profile still reporting I am running 1.4.5. I am guessing the security update on HP servers really did break stuff.
    Let me guess - you ran the meta-doctor with one of the early scripts that had "Step 5". That's the only way I can think of that you'd have 2.1 on the device, and have 1.4.5 on your profile.

    com.palm.app.fixbackup
    com.palm.app.fixbackup_1.0.1_all.ipk
    https://cdn.downloads.palm.com/apps/..._1.0.1_all.ipk

    Requires: webOS 2.1.0
    Version: 1.0.1
    The file fails to download on a PC and ofcourse since my Profile reports 1.4.5, it won't download on my Pre+ either.

    I did not know there was a way to have the AT&T Pre+ run 2.1.0 without reporting 1.4.5 in the profile. Could you please point to where one could see how to do this.

    Just checked and my last backup was at 7:48 AM today! It went all by itself. Hopefully the regular backups will continue.

    Well according to the people in the hp help chat the software version is reported by the carrier (ATT) and since there has not been an official update through ATT it still reports 1.4.5.

    also according to them there is news coming about an official update in the coming weeks....yeah right...

    and actually no I ran one of the later Metadoctors that have no step 5
    (WebOS 2 Upgrade - WebOS Internals)

    If a better script is out then I am willing to metadoctor again, but there is no way I am going back to 1.4.5.

    I know this is not a good timing to ask this favor,
    but can someone re-upload this file?
    thank you very much

    It looks like HP has taken this app off of their site, and even though my phone reports 2.1.0 in Palm Profile it won't let me download it from the app catalog. Did anyone download the .ipk for manual installation?

    at least with impostah it seems to be there
    start Impostah press button "App Catalog". enter com.palm.app.fixbackup
    i can get Application Info... , seems last modified on 2011-08-25

    I don't want to install it, as everything is ok with my backup, but if somesome tells me how to get this downloaded only, i'll try it.

    apparently that app is only for Pre 2's.. I'm running a Plus. Spoke to HP support and was told id have to wipe apps and data to fix the backup, and they told me this AFTER they had me turn Backup off to erase my only backup. Way to be HP, way to be..

    I had downloaded it a few weeks ago on my Sprint pre- running 2.1 and it worked perfectly. I just got my frankenpre2 up and running and am having backup issues and the install for this app fails.

    Try to get through a technician, they sometimes have older backups of your profile. Bug them at support to escalate it, it worked for some here in the forums.

    I was able to extract the backupfix app files from my pre- and create and .ipk but I get an error 22 invalid magic when I try and install it using command line. Also tried installing via QI and no go. I don't necessarily know what I'm doing, so I might be going about it the wrong way.
  15. #55  
    is this perhaps the big security updates HP pushed a couple weeks ago finally kicking in??

    I just tried a manual backup and it went through fine. Maybe it was something on hp's side of things.

    Me too. I doctored my Pre2, same webos version-- 2.1.0, backup ran for a day or so, but now it hasn't backed up since the 10th. Manual backups fail as well. I get "install failed" when trying to install the previously linked to fix. Anyone found a work around to get things going again?

    BTW, I am trying to install from here. It is still in the HP App Catalog, appears to download, but install fails.

    Gizmo21 posted a link a few pages back and I downloaded it from there and installed it with Preware. Here's the link: https://cdn.downloads.palm.com/apps/..._1.0.1_all.ipk

    Similar experience as marysm: seems to download but install fails.

    But, in addition:

    https://cdn.downloads.palm.com/apps/..._1.0.1_all.ipk -- "This webpage is not found"
    And: https://developer.palm.com/appredire...xbacku&code=IL -- "The application is not currently available. Please try again later."

    Does anyone have the .ipk file itself and could email it to me? brobi69<at>gmail.com

    thanks!
