well, that's what i was thinking too. but that list of webos doctor versions, doesn't include one for a FrankenPre.

that part indicates using a script line like this: ./scripts/meta-sprint-franken-verizon-pre2-2.2.4
but i've been suggested to use 2.1.0 instead of 2.2.4 and that will work too. so i'm actually in ubuntu now, WHICH I DIDN'T KNOW WAS JUST A LINUX version of Windows, and i finally found the TERMINAL app under ACCESSORIES, and found where i'm supposed to type "git pull" and "make clobber"; and then i pasted in the script line for 2.1.0.
and sure enough, it's making something, and saving to a file that's the exact same name as the doctor that i already used, called p103ueuna-wr-2.1.0.jar
so it appears i'm building the same doctor i already had installed once.
HOWEVER, it just got done trying to save itgit, and says 'no space left on device'. i dont know what the heck that means. my computer certainly does not have a full hard drive. so it says error 1, then it self make clobbered. is it because i'm logged in as a guest? because to be an admin, it's asking for a password, which i have no idea what it could be, on my own computer, which i would not have set a password on? argh!
so now i dont know whether to try to build it again, or try to run the one i had in windows again.
NONE OF THIS STUFF MAKES SENSE!
and again i'm up 'til 2:30 am working on phones, with no clue what i'm doing.
....and it's 4am now, and i'm still going. i redoctored with the file i had, but no paid apps in the cat. however, i did a manual update check, and it's offering me 2.2.4 OTA. so i'm letting it install. if this does not free up the paid apps, i am going to bed and trying again tomorrow. this phone is so frustrating!!! i must certainly love webOS to go through all this, and it's not the first time! (don't read my thread history. i've rediscovered a bunch of my old comments from the first time i made this phone a Franken, and well, i really am insane in the mem-brain!
ooh! it's done downloading. install, install....what will happen when it wakes up from reboot?????? penguin....installing....oh. this is the slooow circle around icon. come on.....25%....go go!
