So, those of you who are out here know my Palm Pre 2 and I have had a rocky road the last few weeks.
I did end up buying a new Palm Pre 2, but it is WebOS 2.0.1. Makes calls and everything, but I had 2.2.4 before and, well, I miss things like Exhibition with the agenda and the ability to store ##21# (AA&T stop forwarding calls command) in my contacts and maps that work.
I have been reading up on the upgrades and there is always a reference to Meta Doctor. I can't really find one that talks about 2.0.1 to 2.2.4 and I can't find Meta Doctor.
Reading what you do with Meta Doctor makes me think I don't really need it. That being said, I am also reading the warnings and I am wondering if the WebOS Doctor that I have might have been meta doctored thereby causing my current situation of not being able to boot.
Now, if I have two Palm Pre's and can't use either one, I will be reduced to never leaving my house and binge watching Law and Order, so I don't want to go there.... but I want to be back to whole -- and the new phone, the keyboard does work a whole lot better than the other phone.
I am trying to locate another download of WebOSDoctor for 2.2.4 to see if there is any impact on the phone that, for all intents and purposes, is bricked right now.
Any thoughts from you guys who have been around for a while.... BTW - I owe lots of dinners or beers to all of you... If you are ever anywhere and see a short, pudgy red head using a Palm Pre.. say hello, there can't be many of us matching that description, and dinner is on me!!
