This is my first post here but it is one for a very serious situation.
Here is the short history of what happened to my Palm Pre2
When I bought it it worked perfectly fine. (apart from some trouble with my profile that would not migrate from Pre+ to Pre2)
I installed loads of apps and even Preware homebrew pass and it still worked worked perfectly.
Then one day I found that the phone had severely crashed in my absence and that is when the trouble started.
After that crash I had to reinstall the OS (can't remember what exactly I did, I think it was like a first use configuration).
One of the symtoms after the reinstall were that that the patches that I nstalled and thought had to be gone still somehow worked. On the other hand they did not show as installed in the Preware menus, nor could I reinstall or erase them. Using the emergency tools that Preware proposes did not help either.
Things got worse gradually, and since reinstalling the webOS recovery using Preware had not helpe either, I decided to do a full erase of the phone.
So I redid the installation like I had done when I first used it. The only difference was that the App catalogue application proposed to recover all my apps - without the homebrew apps of course.
The only problem is that this reinstall did not solve my problems either.
Here is a list of what currently does not work
- Tapping the top bar (middle to right) no longer shows the appropriate menus,
- the battery does not load properly - at best, while keeping the USB cable plugged in, the Pre2 holds the current charge or charges only when I switch it off via the device info app (provided by chance it stays off),
- the on/off button can no longer be used to switch the phone off (if you press the button for a couple of seconds the phone makes a sound but the off menu does not show)
- the phone is no longer recognized by any PC - not as a Pre phone but neither as any device - it is as if I had not connected the phone to the PC at all - I already tried a new USB cable too
Does anybody think there is any hope for full recovery?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
