    a little while ago I upgraded to the latest warthog (-70 I think) and my pre would not boot! I had to use the volume up trick to get the doctor to work.

    Shouldn't you post this in the official thread for that kernel? Your input might be helpful.

    There doesn't seem to be an official thread for it. Certainly not that I've ever seen. There are a few threads that have been started to discuss certain things with warthog, but there isn't one like for uberkernel, marco's kernels, etc.

    I believe the "official" discussion for all the testing kernels is held on the WebOS Internals IRC channels.

    Only UberKernel has an oficial thread here, since it's the only public (non-testing) kernel currently available.

    That is because Warthog is a developer testbed, not an end-user kernel.

    If you are expecting any sort of stability, you should choose a different kernel. Warthog is intended to change and stop working on a whim with no warning.

    Hopefully this makes people think twice about upgrading to unannounced new versions that just happen to appear in an experimental alpha testing feed ...

    warthog-73 is now waiting for the autobuilder.

    i'm getting reports that -70 does boot after a battery pull but it freezes when changing governors.

    Heh, you didn't see the angry support emails I got about it overnight I'm starting to feel like the Free Music Ringtones developer ...

    The message I quoted (not your message, BTW) was not a report ...

    Getting mad at the developer getting mad ecause the end user didn't read the disclaimer is never good. It can lead to slow to no development, lack of support, and **** code.

    If you were told it can break easily,and then it breaks easily, then the answer is 1.

    I don't think anyone is getting mad at anyone in this very civilised thread

    But seriously, if you're not *really* prepared to doctor your phone immediately after doing so, without even blinking, then you should not upgrade to an unannounced kernel version. A statement beginning with "Wow, I'm glad I didn't ..." does not indicate *real* acceptance of those conditions.

    We've been very tempted to put in a "rm -rf /media/internal" in random unannounced alpha testing kernel packages, just to reinforce this, but we're probably too nice to do that Probably ...

    That would not be very civilized.......Lets leave it at..be prepared to doctor your phone if it does not boot due to the experimental kernel...

    I concur with this. Mounting drives per that page then unmounting them cleanly after booting with the recovery castle uImage was enough to get the pre booting with -70 without having to do a full doctor.
