    1) I will probably flash meta-doc 1.4.1.1 and go with that to improve battery life. I am not happy to go preware patching as it seems like to much work on each webOS update.

    2) Well, yes, your points re CISCO: CISCO would offer a lot to Palm and the Palm customer base, however I am unsure about what benefits Palm offers for Cisco, besides 'diversity' of product range (into phones).

    3) btw...I feel a little naughty in discussing Android here in webos-internals forum, but just few minutes ago I did my first OTA update to Android 2.1. Have to say that the process was silky smooth, and EVERYTHING works (sorry - just had to tell somebody).

    i have the same problem, where is the EXACT location of the jar file? i used the jar from the virtual box ubuntu -> Under "home folder-metadoctor-downloads-"
    ... didnt work. where is the file you mentioned

    Have you seen this thread?

    After you "make unpack patch pack", you can simply poke around with the "ls" and "cd" commands.

    ls - list files/directories
    cd - change directory

    You'll eventually find the build directory with the goods.

    That guide makes poking even easier if you pay attention to how to use the Tab Completion feature, but you might need to "cd ~/meta-doctor/" in order to start out at the same folder I did.

    G'luck!

    The Meta-Doctor now has a new feature: INSTALL_WIFI_PROFILES

    INSTALL_WIFI_PROFILES imports a wifi preferences database file from the user's home directory to the device. The device will then be set up to use wifi immediately after the webOS Doctor has completed.

    You must already have copied a correctly configured prefsDB.sl file from the /var/preferences/com.palm.wifi/ directory on the device to ~/.ssh/com.palm.wifi.prefsDB.sl on your host machine before enabling this feature, or it will cause a fatal error.

    Note that this file contains your wifi passphrases, so you should protect it accordingly.

    sorry if this is a stupid question, but how do i update meta-doctor? when i type in the command from the wiki:

    git clone git://git.webos-internals.org/tools/meta-doctor.git

    it says the directory already exists. TIA

    mhous...

    When you're in the meta-doctor directory with the Makefile...

    just run this string of commands at once:

    make clobber; rm Makefile; git pull

    1) The Meta-Doctor pre-dates Palm's tool by many months.

    2) The Meta-Doctor allows you to use a Palm Profile on the device, and participate in OTA updates over wifi.

    3) The Meta-Doctor does a number of other things, such as disabling the upload daemon, installing SSH keys and Wifi profiles, and permanently changing the keyboard layout.

    If your needs are covered by the Palm tool, then you should definitely use the Palm tool.

    Not to mention being able to download paid apps. Not sure how you can do that without a Palm Profile.

    But yea, it's good Palm's finally got SOME official solution for developers. That took awhile, didn't it?

    Anyone got a fix for this:

    Code:
    mick@ubuntu:~/meta-doctor$ make all-wr
    make CARRIER=wr unpack patch pack
    make[1]: Entering directory `/home/mick/meta-doctor'
    mkdir -p downloads
    Please download the correct version of the webOS Doctor .jar file
    and then move it to downloads/webosdoctorp100ueu-wr-1.4.1.jar (i.e. the downloads directory that was just created under the current directory).
    make[1]: *** [downloads/webosdoctorp100ueu-wr-1.4.1.jar] Error 1
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/mick/meta-doctor'
    make: *** [all-wr] Error 2
    mick@ubuntu:~/meta-doctor$

    The MetaDoctor is currently studying for a degree in genetics.

    So far, it can take a full backup of your device:

    1) Make sure developer mode is on, your device is plugged in via USB, and you have enough disk space available (e.g. up to 8GiB or 16Gib)
    2) Close all your apps (your device is going to reboot in steps 3 and 5)
    3) make CARRIER=<carrier> memboot backup
    4) Find your backup in ./clones/<id>/*.tar.gz
    5) make reboot

    The <carrier> chosen doesn't matter too much for this process - just choose the one for which you have already downloaded the webOS Doctor and put it in the right place with the right filename.

    The <id> is the first 8 characters of the nduid of your device (so it should be different for each device that you backup).

    Code:
    bash-3.2$ make CARRIER=wr memboot backup
    novacom -w run file://sbin/tellbootie recover || true
    novacomd socket was closed prematurely
    novacom: unexpected EOF from server
    novacom -w boot mem:// < build/pre-p100ueu-wr-1.4.1/webOS/nova-installer-image-castle.uImage

    Unmounting /dev/mapper/store-root
    Unmounting /dev/mapper/store-media
    novacom -w run file://usr/sbin/lvm.static -- vgscan --ignorelockingfailure 2> /dev/null
      Reading all physical volumes.  This may take a while...

    For those interested in the next lectures that the MetaDoctor is planning to attend, take a look at the decompile and compile targets in the Makefile ...

    So is this the 'holy grail' of backup that I've been waiting for - the equivalent of a disk image, where a restore magically makes things 'just like they were before' whatever disaster happened?

    Then I suppose we can get out backup data from Save/Restore and the cloud?

    That is indeed the end-goal that I hope to reach when MetaDoctor completes the genetics degree ...

    Ahh ha...

    So, it's only backup capable as of right now? No restore option as of yet?

    That is correct. The doctor hasn't attended that lecture yet. Maybe this weekend, maybe not.

    The last few times i've doctored with 'remove carrier check' enabled, the app store and app updates have worked ok.
    Now the only thing that bugs me about having 'remove carrier check' enabled is that the wallpaper and ringtone get reset on reboot. I imagine this is because there are no default wallpapers or ringtones after removing the carrier package, but i've tried adding wallpapers and ringtones to the default folders, setting them, and rebooting, and they still get reset. Any suggestions?

    Remove carrier check is meant to be a last-resort temporary usage feature for the short period of time when a new webOS release is available on one carrier but not the others. It's not designed for permanent usage.

    So I could meta-doctor the at&t 1.4.2 webOS Doctor, removing carrier check and model check, and use it on my verizon pixi? I thought this might be possible but haven't seen anyone posting about it...
