    Ok, I tried to apply some browser patch, not successful. Then I noticed one of the patch (thumbnav control) I applied before I did a full erase is still there (but prepare shows that it is not installed)

    If I try to install thumbnav, I got error. How can I force remove the patch?

    Does webOS correct the patch or refresh the entire system?

    The WebOS Doctor will restore all files to original.

    It is possible to extract individual files from the Doctor package and overwrite the files which have been modified by the patching process using Internalz Pro. (If you need to ask how, maybe you should not be doing it and I wouldn't want to be responsible for the havoc that you might wreak )

    try the webos quick install app. Sometimes it will still show app or patch as installed and it will remove it ...sometimes. Has worked for me in the past.

    Depending on what file is messed up and how it is messed up, an OTA most likely won't fix your problem either.
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    i am in the same boat. I have done full erase and security full erase wipes and yet some patches are still active. I want to do a mega clean reset with all system files set to default and have no idea what to do. Any advice? I have never used web doctor. Will that really work?

    Full erase/security wipes don't touch patches.

    You'll need to uninstall them or run webos doctor to do a factory reset.
