    So, a friend has a Pre and the screen has stopped working, it is also no longer activated on the carrier. Preware is installed and it's in dev mode, so I can use novaterm to connect. I can not however seem to get any access to save some of data/settings. That is I do not know how to transfer files from the device.

    * I can enable wifi, but it does not automatically connect to any networks (Perhaps it would at the friends house, idk)
    ** I can start/stop the wifi with
    Code:
    /sbin/initctl start PmWiFiService
    ** Is there some way to pass the SID and credentials from the command line in order to connect to wifi?

    * Is there some way to just push/get files to/from the device in dev mode?

    * It does not have dropbear/ssh installed, without a network I can't install one in the hopes of using scp or rsync to back stuff up.

    * Is there some way from the command line to simply switch the usb connection into disk mode?

    Any tricks would be appreciated.

    if the buttons still work you can simply use the Orange/Silver+SYM+U command?

    Outstanding, exactly what I was looking for...

    ... Next step, getting it to use wifi and figuring out what useful jobs a Pre with no display might be good for...
