    Use WebOS Doctor and recover from there.

    let it stand. the update takes a while to fully install......mine took about 15mins for the palm logo to change to the glowing logo.

    This is correct but by pulling the battery he bricked it. Patience is a virtue. If he follows the steps, he should be able to get WebOS DR to run.

    How long did you wait? Cause it wasn't flashing for me for a good 5-10 minutes maybe? The update took a while for me, but I'm good now.

    How bad is it if you accidentally disconnect the usb while doctoring?

    Turn off phone. Hold down volume up button. While holding down the volume up button, power up phone. Keep holding volume up button until usb icon shows on ur phone. Then run Web OS doctor

    web os doctor is still not recognizing my pre. i closed the web doc, unplugged the pre, plugged back in, turned off, turned back on and hit the volume up. Went into usb mode where the entire screen shows the usb symbol, ran the web os, and it's STILL not seeing it?
