I am trying to resurrect my old pre2 and am having some trouble. I decided to doctor it because I think some patches went awry and even though I uninstalled them, they not all of the original files seemed to be reverted correctly...
In any case, I grabbed the meta-doctor script and build a custom version of the webOS 2.2.4 doctor and tried to run it. At 8% the doctor said that the device had reset. Looking at the log, it appears there was some issue with the partitioning:
This was followed by a bunch of java stack traces.
got lvm static, running vgscan
flushing and closing
vgscan ran, running vgchange

WARNING: no LVVM
So, I found this which said to format the usb partition, so I did. No luck.
Then I tried to wipe and rebuild the LVM with a modified version of these instructions from xda dev that talk about rebuilding corrupted lvm on the touchpad (basically I changed /dev/mmcblk0p14 to /dev/mmcblk0p3).
webOS doctor still gives the same errors. So I thought it might be because I was using a modified doctor, so I used the stock doctor for 2.2.4, 2.2.0, and 2.0.0, all gave the same problem.
So now I have a phone that wont boot (loads first hp logo, not the pulsing one) or take a doctoring.
It should be noted that I CAN memboot using the nova-installer...uImage from the various doctors and I can run gvscan and gvchange without error.
So I'm stumped. Anyone have a bright idea?
