First, I want to say that I appreciate all the amazing hard work of everyone on here. I try to ask as few questions as possible. I make it a point to search vigorously and try as much as possible because I've found that for the most part the answers are here.
That being said, I'm at a loss. I've built a couple of successful Sprint Pre2's via the perfect instructions on WebOS-Internals, but this one is killing me. I have moved on to my Veer, but I wanted to turn my mom's OG Sprint Pre into a glorious Sprint Pre2. The comms board donor(Sprint Pre) is totally activated and fully functional. The FrankenPre2 shell is of the unlocked GSM variety. I have two computers. The one I am meta-building on is only running ubuntu. I've followed the steps approximately 10 times. Each time the Doctor runs perfectly and without a hitch. But each time, the Sprint Pre2 will not connect to the data network.
I have tried the scripts for both 2.1.0 and 2.2.4 several times and get the same results. After it fails to connect I rebuild the OG Pre and 1.4.5 Doctor it and it activates and connects to network perfectly.
So, I think to myself... Maybe I'm doing something wrong in the creation of my meta-doctor. So I decided to just make a Sprint Pre running webOS 2.1.0. Once again the OG Pre pulls through and connects to data and all that.
Next I decided to try a different unlocked Pre2 as I had one lying around. It had a few bumps on it, but It definitely used to work so why not give it a shot. Same problem.
I'm really at a loss with this and if anyone here has some insight, I would greatly appreciate it.
Once again, thanks go out to all the awesome people in the webOS family.
