    mvaz, youre in the same boat (Well, the same boat i used to be in)

    theres a bypass activation tool you can download from palm here
    Developing on an Unactivated Device - Palm Developer Center

    run it (make sure you have lates java installed, java.com: Java + You) once you have connected your device. It will do its magic. this will reboot it, and will bypass the activation, there are of course limitations to the bypass as the website states.

    now you need preware on your device to install the "first use app" patch. This patch will run the activation tool again and will allow you to create the profile with palm while on wifi. After you run the first use app and create the profile, the limitations you once had will be gone.

    installing preware - Application:Preware - WebOS Internals

    <rant>And not for nothing...I am a little po'ed. Freaking Palm is NOT cool for having that lock to begin with...Duckers!!! If I pay for something I should be able to use it if I cancel service with Sprint at a minimum to tinker with, without having to perform a song and dance...</rant>

    Meta Doctor is pretty simple. It is also the only way to bypass activation and still have access to the App Catalog, Update app, and numerous other features.

    You need the jdk to make the emulator work but does that resolve the issue with the bypass tool? You lost me.

    And maybe the doc isn't too hard but much more complicated then clicking a couple of buttons as per the palm tool no?

    Has no one else experienced what a couple of us are and resolved??? Ahhhhhh lol

    Hi Garrett92C,

    how come i find it so difficult to use meta doctor?
    I'm not computer expert, maybe that's why i got confused.

    Can you put in simpler form, how to access APP CATALOG? I want to buy MOTION APPS CLASSICS.

    I bought PALM PRE, with a hope I still can use my PALM OS program on my new palm Pre, now, I ended up carrying 2 phones, Palm Pre and Palm Centro.


    thx a lot in advance
    regards,
    NICK

    Don't think you can buy anything without a profile
    Apps: MyQ for Netflix (Phone/TouchPad), Giantbomb (Phone), Excavate (Reddit/Digg clients for TouchPad)
