    I've tried every thing to fix this, but can't get past the "ERROR: no device found" part. Tried the orca thing and went step by step through the main tutorial several times. Using vista on a 64 bit system. Am about to give up and be stuck with the official boring apps. No homebrew for me.

    I have windows7x64. If I use this method to install the novacom driver, and then download putty, will those two alone be sufficient to gain root access to my pre?

    may i suggest uploading the webosdoctor.jar file to a faster server? i have been trying "literally" all day to download this file and i'm finding it painfully slow. i've tried downloading it manually as well as through the automatic download in the webosquickinstall and it's been snail's pace both ways. at first i thought it might have been my connection but i downloaded over a gigabyte of work related data from sendspace in the same time period. thx

    Again, let's please keep this thread clean of WebOSQuickInstall stuff. That said, please read my Troubleshooting post.

    Legally I can't advise this, unfortunately. If it weren't for the legal issues and warnings I received, I could've made installation/setup a lot simpler. However that code is rightfully Palm's and having the user download it by choice is my little workaround.

    I'm not quite sure what speed issues you're having though. I download it at about 400kb/s, pretty fast. And it's fro Palm's servers so it'll be reliable

    Lorie- You need to go back into your folder where ever you extracted your MSI file to and "right-click" that to find "edit with orca". My guess is your right-clicking the MSI in your archive manager

    As well- To everyone still having problems with the no device error message. Don't over-look Jason's advice and check out his "Troubleshooting" thread. The fix should be right there at #1. Open your WebOsQuickInstall.. Go to file in the upper left corner.. Click options, and then attempt Novacom (re)installation. After hours trying to fix the problem, that's what did it. Not even sure if I needed to go the whole Orca route. Thanks Jason!

    Good Luck all

    I was having the same error w/ finding the device as everyone else, and this solution worked! I am on an XP...who knows what bit, but I went with 32. Once I ran the extracted and edited NovacomInstaller_x86.msi - it worked. No restart or anything. Pre was plugged in and instantly recognized as a Novacom device.

    I'm a total noob...but a persistent one. So don't give up if you're having troubles!

    Thanks for making my Pre MUCH more fun!

    I have the webosquickinstall working fine, THANKS JASON! My problem is that I can't get novacom to load correctly when I try to get root access to the Pre? I have novacom in the proper directory as the sdk and I have tried to install the modified msi files which I altered via orca in the instructions in the OP. When I try to stary novaterm I get "application failed to initialize properly error? I have installed, removed and then reinstalled the SDK. The webos emulator runs fine and I am able to run webosquickinstall as well. But for reason the novcom drivers do not appear to load properly and I cannot run novaterm to root my pre? Anyone know what is going on? I'm running Vista 32 bit....

    Try StartMenu->Run..->"cmd" then type "novacom -t open tty://" That gives you root access

    THANKS!!! That worked! Is there anyway I can make a shortcut to the command terminal so I don't have to enter this every time? Yeah I know I'm lazy...
