Hello,

I cannot access the App Catalog. Specifically I get the following message, when I run the App Catalog application from my phone:
“The action could not be completed. Try again letter”. I get this message all the time, and I never managed to see the catalog.

Similarly, I cannot use Help application. I get the message “Failed to load the requested page”.

Any ideas please? Is it maybe an option I activated or deactivated in the Makefile when I metadoctored the phone in order to bypass the profile activation screen?

My phone is a Palm Pre, WebOS 1.4.5

Thank you,

I downloaded impostah from preware, but 'app catalog' is not activated. The only activated options are 'Connections', 'App Data' and 'App Cookies'. Any other suggestions please?

Hello all,

I would really appreciate if someone could help me with the open issues I have with my Palm Pre.
Here is a summary of what I have with my phone:
I have meta-doctored the phone and it is working. I had to do this, because I live in Cyprus, and therefore I could not bypass the profile activation screen.
I have also changed the information in the database file and GPRS and 3G are working.

Now, here are the open problems:
a. I cannot access the App Catalog. I get the message “The action could not be completed. Try again letter”.
b. I cannot accesss Help. I get the same message as above.

I tried to create a new profile by using First Use app. It allows me enter my information, it goes to the 'security question', then it tries to create the profile, but it finally says that it cannot.

Can you help me with the above issues please?

I'll need more info. Do you have a data plan or are you attempting to activate via wifi on a previously activated device?

My phone is a Palm Pre EU version. I ordered it from the UK, and I tried to use it in Cyprus. However, I had to create a profile, and because this was not possible to be done here in Cyprus, I had to metadoctor the phone. I never managed to create a profile. Here are the settings of the makefile I used:

# BYPASS_ACTIVATION = 1
BYPASS_FIRST_USE_APP = 1
# ENABLE_DEVELOPER_MODE = 1
# ENABLE_BETA_FEEDS = 1
# INSTALL_SSH_AUTH_KEYS = 1
# INSTALL_WIFI_PROFILES = 1
DISABLE_UPLOAD_DAEMON = 1
# DISABLE_UPDATE_DAEMON = 1
# DISABLE_MODEM_UPDATE = 1
# ENABLE_USB_NETWORKING = 1
# REMOVE_MODEL_CHECK = 1
REMOVE_CARRIER_CHECK = 1
# CHANGE_KEYBOARD_TYPE = z
# ADD_EXTRA_CARRIERS = 1
VAR_PARTITION_SIZE = 2GB
# SWAP_PARTITION_SIZE = 512MB
# EXT3FS_PARTITION_SIZE = 2GB

# Select "pre", "preplus", "pixi", "pixiplus", "pre2", "pre3", "veer" or "touchpad".
DEVICE = pre

# Select "wr", "sprint", "verizonwireless", "bellmo", "telcel", "att" or "wifi".
CARRIER = wr

Everything works fine apart from the fact that I cannot access the App Catalog, Help, and have updates. I cannot also create a profile. I tried to access the app catalog or create a profile through wifi, through 3g or 2g connection both with my Cyprus and a UK sim card (from Cyprus), but nothing. I also tried through the developer's mode, but also no result.

Try installing Impostah (use webOS Quick Install or Preware for this). Tap "Activation" in the top right corner. Choose the app catalog you want to access, then sign in using your profile and password. If that doesn't help, install Show Properties (again using WOSQI or Preware) and check what value you have for DMSETS and post them here (should have 2 values).

The Activation button is deactivated, therefore I cannot use it. I installed Show Properties, and the value for DMSETS is {"sets": "312"}.

Thank you for trying to help.

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure Impostah was updated (version 0.9.17) to include enabling device profile, palm profile and app catalog information for 1.4.5 devices. You need 2 values of DMSETS anyway so I think you need to redoctor or do some more reading of the metadoctor wiki.

Is there a way to get the 2 values of DMSETS without having to redoctor? When I first metadoctored the phone, I enabled REMOVE_CARRIER_CHECK in makefile. Maybe this causes the current one value of DMSETS?

Thank you,
