    sconix, here in Chile there is 3G but only available to notebooks connected with high speed cards, son I cannot yet try that option, just 2G.

    Now that the Web OS repair utility is out could anyone create a metadoctor with the requisite Castleutms.tar file in it? It's beyond my meagre abilities.

    I am in the process of trying this (through a lot of guess work) but my internet connection is so slow at home it takes 1+ hours to download the webosdoctor.

    Not sure about the whether there is separate fw for the 2G part but I doubt it. And anyway at least for me the 2G part was working even with the modem fw from 1.4.0 and it is still working with the modem fw from 1.3.5.2.

    Here’s the saga of my Pre…

    1.Upgraded to 1.4, the phone showed “Phone offline” (instead of Roaming);
    2.Sent the file castleumtsfw.tar to /tmp using WQI
    3.Typed the command “PmModemUpdater -m -e </tmp/castleumtsfw.tar”
    4.Phone restarted but still showed “Phone offline”
    5.Doctored to 1.3.5.2, when the phone restarts, it keeps loading at the start up screen and cannot load to select language for activation.
    6.then here is a message “your phone is experiencing an error that cannot be resolved”

    Did I brick my Pre? What should I do now?

    I am facing a some what similar problem. Can anyone help?

    Thanks, I might have a go myself, although the links to the solutions have been removed from the Rebel site. I wonder have they resolved it?

    PLEASE HELP ME - I WILL REALLY APPRECIATE

    I have been using 1.4 since last few days. It worked fine with just "R" but it didn't affect the 3G or my network until today. NOW IT SAYS SOS ONLY

    I tried sconix method, copied my file to tmp in pre but following error comes:
    root@palm-webos-device: PmModemUpdater -m -e </tmp/castleumtsfw.tar
    cannot open /tmp/castleumtsfw.tar: no such file

    Do i need to wipe out everything and start from scratch? How do i do it ?

    or can i still fix the problem without downgrading and then upgrading?

    please HELP

    It is thanks to you, sconix, that I still have a working phone , I am really glad I found your solution! I haven't tried yet with any other SIM, so I can't be 100% sure that 2G doesn't work, but it sure seems that way. The way things are with the RC, I don't dare changing things too much. Before I applied your solution, I put the RC in an older SE phone to try to change the mode, but it appeared to be locked to mode 1 so I just went with that. Anyway, with network settings at 3G only, I very rarely get the "Network search..." problem, even if the signal reception looks to be just about zero. I have even been able to maintain an ongoing phone call while the Pre goes to "SOS only"!!

    OK that is weird. At least I am using also mode 1 and have tried at least couple different sim cards and even used the phone in couple different countries and all has been working really well. So I have no glue what could cause your problems. I think one option could be to try the flashing again with for example airplane mode on so that the modem should not be in use (I think I read someone using this to get succesfull flashing). But this is far fetched since if you got succesfull flash result so doubt that it would help, but this is all that comes to my mind.

    Is there a trick to using the RSC abroad? Every time I have been away, it has initially found the network, and then reverted to SOS only or asked for the network lock code.

    At least I haven't need to do anything. So far have used my Pre with RSC in Finland, Sweden, France and Mexico without any problems. Even data connection has worked well.

    What settings are you using for it (RSC mode, 3g only, manual network etc)? I have experienced nothing but fail when taking the phone abroad.

    While using the -f option for downgrading the modem fw , my Pre is stuck at Flashing AMSS - 64 %... What to do?
  18. #318  
    Okay something is really effing wrong with these instructions... I tried to downgrade the fw using the -f option and the process gets stuck at AMSS flashing 58% and then nothing happens. After that the phone offline issue arises and no matter what I do the phone can't be web doctored. Can somebody effin explain?

    I am currently on 1.4 and I've found my rebelsim to work for around 4 hours before going back to SOS only. If I put the sim in another phone and then back in the Pre it works again. I've been trying to download the 1.3.5.2 webdoctor (o2 IE version, same as UK?) but the download links seem to be broken. If anyone could put up a mirror I'd really appreciate it.

    I have not tried the solution of Sconics (though very greatful) as afraid that I will mess up. Is it not better that I just wait to the new upgrade of webos?
