    Unfortunately because I don't have access, I can't view these files....problem is compounded by constant time out errors, even when my display is on and WiFi running


    UGH!

    Thoughts? Maybe time to consider using the 'Doctor' to wipe clean?

    I would backup my data and try the WebOS doctor to restore to factory settings.

    Will the back up process keep all my root accessed apps/mods such as text forwarding/ battery % display?

    (Crazy that the app that seems to have caused this root access problem installed successfully, huh?)

    Certainly not. By "backup" I meant copy all your photos and things that reside on the phone off of the phone as the WebOS Doctor and the backup process will only restore certain things. Those certain things I am not 100% certain of at all. With synergy though, getting your contacts back on the phone should be a breeze.

    Good luck.

    OK so this is what i get, and in his video i see a lot more steps after, so now my page is only showing me 3 steps when his on his video goes on more.




    Windows lacks an "xterm" program. So no full blown terminal program is available for windows to communicate with the Pre via novacom.

    Never the less, Palm has provided all the tools you need to access the linux on your Pre from windows without any additional software. THe only problem with it is, you only get a command line, you can't get a fully interactive terminal. So, the very first thing you're going to want to do is to install the "next steps" package so that you can log into your Pre with a terminal program.
    Install the Palm Pre SDK accepting all defaults
    Open a command session. You will be at some C:\> directory -- which one doesn't matter
    type
    cd \program files\palm\sdk\bin
    Your prompt will change to
    C:\program files\palm\sdk\bin\>
    Type
    novacom -t open tty://
    Your prompt will change to root@castle:/# ←[J

    You are now at the Linux prompt on your Pre.
