Quick steps that I did:

* Get webosDoctor 1.3.5.1 for Telcel
* Get webosDoctor 1.4 for EU GSM
* Extract webOS.tar and wr.tar from EU GSM 1.4
* Stick EU GSM 1.4 webOS.tar and wr.tar inside 1.3.5.1 Telcel webosDoctor file
* Get meta doctor
* Create downloads directory inside meta doctor directory
* Copy modified 1.3.5.1 Telcel webosdoctor file (with the 1.4 files) inside the downloads directory
* Run meta doctor with no patches (make CARRIER=telcel unpack patch pack)
* Run the new webosDoctor that got created in the build directory inside meta doctor
* Wait for the Pre to flash
* Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!

I tried sticking only the webos.tar file but the app catalog.

Sticking both files gets the app catalog to work!!!!

Right now I'm synching all my accounts and apps.

If you want to try it, I can post detailed instructions.

Ah, btw, I made this under Ubuntu, I don't have access to a windows machine, but I read this can be done under windows using cygwin.

The detailed instructions are here

Well done .

This works for pretty much all doctors and the method/trick is well known but good for the beginners to know

Can be done simply by renaming .jar to .zip, extracting and performing the required steps, rezipping, and turning back to .jar

Yeah, the catch was with the App Catalog, it didn't work at first when injecting only the webos.tar file

By popular demand, the detailed steps
I use Ubuntu Linux, I'll try my best to adapt this to windows, works with cygwin and some packages.

* Get Java for your OS (jre works, no need for jdk). www.java.com

* Get webosDoctor 1.3.5.1 for Telcel

* Get webosDoctor 1.4 for EU GSM
* Extract webOS.tar and wr.tar from EU GSM 1.4
On Ubuntu use file-roller to extract webOS.tar and wr.tar, on Ubuntu, rename the .jar files (Telcel and Eur) to .zip, open the EUR file and get resources/webOS.tar and resources/wr.tar

* Stick EU GSM 1.4 webOS.tar and wr.tar inside 1.3.5.1 Telcel webosDoctor file
Again, on Ubuntu use file roller to open the Telcel file, enter the resources directory and drop there the webOS.tar and wr.tar that you extracted from the EUR file. The step should be similar on windows, open the Telcel file on Winzip, enter the resources directory and drop both files there. If it asks, replace them.

* Get meta doctor
On ubuntu:
1. Install git-core (sudo apt-get install git-core)
2. Install patch (sudo apt-get install patch)
3. clone the meta doctor repository with: git clone git://git.webos-internals.org/tools/meta-doctor.git
4. Enter the meta-doctor directory (cd meta-doctor)

On Windows:
1. Install cygwin (google it!) - Install the following packages: patch, make, git, unzip, zip
2. Open a cygwin bash window
3. clone the meta doctor repository with: git clone git://git.webos-internals.org/tools/meta-doctor.git
4. Enter the meta-doctor directory (cd meta-doctor)

* Create downloads directory inside meta doctor directory (md on windows, mkdir on ubuntu/cygwin, or use your file manager)

* Copy modified 1.3.5.1 Telcel webosdoctor file (with the 1.4 files) inside the downloads directory, name it exactly webosdoctorp100ewwtelcel-1.3.5.1.jar

* Run meta doctor with no patches (make CARRIER=telcel unpack pack) <- We don't need the "patch" parameter that I stated before, so I deleted it

* Run the new webosDoctor that got created in the build directory inside meta doctor

* Wait for the Pre to flash

* Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!

This worked for me beautifully. I lost all my apps, of course, but the ones downloaded from the app catalog returned by themselves.

I had to reinstall preware, homebrew and patches.

I didn't lose media (photos, videos, music).

Good Luck!

And please, I can't send the modified file, it's against Palm policies, and it's a very big file and as Telcel users know, they cap us to 128kbps when we reach 512Mb of transfers

Uploading webOS Doctor breaches the license agreement on no redistribution...

He has problems with novacom not recognizing his Pre. I'll answer in spanish also.

2 cosas:

Intenta poner tu Pre en modo developer (teclea updownupdownleftrightleftrightbastart en el launcher)

O, apagas tu Pre (si quieres quitale la pila), y al prenderlo le dejas el botón de subir volumen apretado. Te tiene que mostrar un icono de USB que ocupa toda la pantalla.

Con el icono en la pantalla te debería de funcionar el webosdoctor.

Saludos!

Just telling him how to enter bootie mode (the large usb icon one).

Digo, compartimos un interés común, y tengo cierto conocimiento, pues nada me cuesta compartirlo.

Si a veces no puedo contestar más rápido o mandar archivos grandes es porque estoy de vacaciones, en Lerma, y solo con el Pre para acceso a Internet

My Palm Pre is Working with 1.4 !!!!!!!!!!!
The solution:

If your PC does not recognize your Pre and you cannot go past step 3 above, try the following steps:

1. With the USB cable connected, completely power off the Pre (hold down the power button until the option to power off appears)
2. Hold down the Up button on the volume rocker
3. While holding the Up button, power on the Pre
4. "Next" should now be enabled - proceed with the recovery

The above steps will put the Pre into bootloader recovery mode and should allow the PC to recognize your device and proceed with the restore. In this mode the screen will display a giant USB logo instead of the usual Palm startup logo.
