Ok,i had received a palm pre as a gift. it was having a few games in it and videos. palm catalog was working very fine,but later a few hours later i enter on update and updated the phone to 1.4.1.1 . afther this i bypassed the activation with webOS doctor and devicetool. i reseted the appdata from the menu on the phone. now the phone is working(the wifi ,and youtube app,calls,camera) but the app catalog don't work. when i enter on it it gaves me the following message : the action could not be completed. Try again later.

Well, you did bypass activation. If your Palm Profile is not registered on your phone (check the Accounts app), you won't be able to use any webOS cloud services, including App Catalog.

Most people say try Impostah. You can also try the original first-use method: delete the flags /var/luna/preferences/furst-use-profile-created and /var/luna/preferences/ran-first-use, then reboot your phone.

You need to have Impostah Pro (from Preware) or Novacom installed. Browse to that path, and tap on the right file to get a menu in Impostah. Delete from there. Alternatively, open a a shell session with Novacom, cd to the path, and rm the flags.

I believe you mean Internalz Pro, not Impostah Pro. :-). I forgot about those flags/files. I need to try that sometime for educational purposes.

If you do that make sure you are connected to a remembered WiFi network.

Arthur Thornton wrote a patch to allow profile creation on bypassed devices.. I don't remember much about it other than him doing it tho. I want to say it was added to the meta-doctor at some point. I do recall seeing you could only use impostah to create a profile on 2.x.

if the device is active on a cell network with a data plan, it may be simpler to just do a full erase and sign in to your profile (or create a new one) during the device activation process.

This article about bypass activation might help.

I think the two patches you might be looking for are :

Enable Profile Creation - Activation Bypassed
