    You can get the tokens by doing a recovery boot and initramfs memload. This will work on any device, irrespective of developer mode.

    Using the below configuration for the Makefile, I've successfully doctored my Pixi. But still with the bug (from what I've googled) that making the first use app icon deleted after first run ( followed by luna restart ).

    BYPASS_FIRST_USE_APP = 1
    ENABLE_DEVELOPER_MODE = 1
    DISABLE_UPLOAD_DAEMON = 1
    DISABLE_MODEM_UPDATE = 1
    ENABLE_USB_NETWORKING = 1

    After that I've tried to add this to the Makefile.
    REMOVE_CARRIER_CHECK = 1

    Redone everything all over. And now successfully created the Palm profile. But during the verification, I've given only USA or Canada as country of choice. So I chose USA.

    Now everything is working except I have only free apps in the app catalog.

    Anyone have any idea how I can at least access the paid catalog? I even don't know right now the pixi is accessing USA app catalog or Germany app catalog.
    App catalog access is determined by the country of the very first carrier activation of the hardware. Subsequent doctors or activations will never change it. If a device has never been activated on a carrier, it will only see free apps.

    My media partition is damaged, i have about 7 gigs free space on it, but it says i have no room to install apps, take pictures, videos, ect- can meta doctor format the usb partition or do i have to get an old webos doctor, because i've tried, remote wipe, all the reset options on the phone, and its wont delete any files from the partition, nor install anything to it-

    The recovery wiki page has a solution for the 8% problem. You have a corrupted media filesystem.

    I assume that means you were successful in recovering your device?

    Had you not reverted to webOS 1.2.1... you could have simply hit Opt+Sym+U to go into USB mode. Maybe I'm not fully understanding why you couldn't access USB mode, tho...

    If you have a corrupted partition, then perhaps you have some bad memory?

    I suspect it's because it does not do the AppDeletion step, and the early ones do not try and preserve the USB drive, so they just reformat it unconditionally.

    As of 2.0.0, I may be able to remove that step using the MetaDoctor.

    have a frakenpre (sprint pre plus). noticed that evdo quit working after i turned off wifi this past friday. not an outage. uninstalled customer kernel and tried regular 1.4.5 sprint doctor. didn't work. stops at 64% everytime(modem?). tried the meta doctor that i used to make my pre a frakenpre (the one with the tokens and stuff). didn't work. stops at 9% everytime. tried combo of meta doctor and franken meta doctor (just added the step of putting the modified castle.xml in there and packed. didn't work. stops at 9% everytime. makefile looked like this:

    # Uncomment the features that you wish to enable below:
    # BYPASS_ACTIVATION = 1
    BYPASS_FIRST_USE_APP = 1
    # ENABLE_DEVELOPER_MODE = 1
    # AUTO_INSTALL_PREWARE = 1
    # ENABLE_TESTING_FEEDS = 1
    # INSTALL_SSH_AUTH_KEYS = 1
    # INSTALL_WIFI_PROFILES = 1
    # DISABLE_UPLOAD_DAEMON = 1
    DISABLE_MODEM_UPDATE = 1
    # ENABLE_USB_NETWORKING = 1
    REMOVE_CARRIER_CHECK = 1
    REMOVE_MODEL_CHECK = 1
    # INCREASE_VAR_SPACE = 1
    # CHANGE_KEYBOARD_TYPE = z
    # ADD_EXT3FS_PARTITION = 2GB

    # Select "pre", "preplus", "pixi", "pixiplus" or "pre2".
    DEVICE = pre

    # Select "wr", "sprint", "verizonwireless", "bellmo", "telcel" or "att".
    CARRIER = sprint

    of the three ways tried in the paragraph above, they've all been tried a many, many, many times (all throughout the weekend). also tried jason's webos repair utility. it starts ok, but never finishes. it gets to the calendar app and then says "could not open file". hittting the enter key gets rid of the msg, but the same msg pops up on the next file and the next file and the next file.

    any suggestions... hopefully? i really don't want to use an early upgrade to get an evo or a regular sprint pre.

    nevermind. disregard the msg above.

    Ok, this is problem is making me crazy.

    I broke the touchscreen on my Pre, signed in to my profile on another device (which signed me out on the old device), and then realized there were alot of important files left on the broken Pre. Is there a way to access them? Is meta-doctor the best path to these files or is there a simpler solution? Thanks everyone!

    You can use the "memboot" and "backup" targets in the MetaDoctor to clone all the filesystems on your device. No screen interaction is required. You only need a working Volume-up and power buttons.

    Been trying to install a 1.4.5 Sprint MD on my Pre by using Cygwin.
    Everything seems to work until the Pre boots up. I chose to bypass activation in the makefile but when it loads up it wants me to sign in thus giving me the same error as before.

    I don't have a fast computer, so I can run any virtual OS's. Cygwin is the only way I can do it as far as I know.
    I haven't read this whole thread so I apologize if this has been solved before.
    I appreciate any help.
    If the only one who knows the truth about a terrible secret is unaware they hold the answer to a mystery that could mean life or death.
    The search for the key leads to the most dangerous place in the world, the human mind.
