So after getting 2.1 running successfully last night I figured I should give something back to the community, and after the call for documentation I wrote out a guide that details and explains every command one needs to use to set up and build a meta-doctor, from start to finish, on a mac. I tried to make it intuitive so that someone with reasonable computer skills but little or no background with the command line could use it.
As per rwhitby's request, I will request that everyone interested in this procedure first read the official wiki page, as this includes more complete as well as up-to-date information. However, for those daunted by the wiki, this guide is simpler and easier to understand.
Suggestions are appreciated. Keep in mind that this is a first draft. In fact, I'd love it if someone who *really* knows their meta-doctor could tell me if I've documented anything wrong in here. I will upload changes promptly and credit people who suggest these changes (although I'm going to bed soon, so it might be in the morning).
The guide is attached. Enjoy everyone!
Are there still steps that need to be taken after the doctor is installed to get text messages working on Verizon and Sprint? I can add those, if so.
Edit 2: Guide updated feb. 25. Minor edits added, including increased promotion of WebOS Internals as well as a reminder to be in the meta-doctor directory before unmasqing.
Updated again with more information about caveats, profile issues, and how to fix the GPS.
