    Not necessarily. In fact I'd be willing to bet no, once you do this update, you are basically refreshing your phone to factory specs but with a bigger /var partition and smaller /media partition. Only thing that would ever be an issue is if they send out an update that resizes the partitions.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I do believe this is the case.

    Again, this is for making a custom webdoctor image. When you webdoctor it reformats your phone essentially.

    Meta-Doctor requires you to create and run a modified version of the webOS Doctor, with everything that running the webOS Doctor entails.

    Getting Ready
    --------------------
    1) Download Ubuntu 8.04 virtual machine for vmware (I used the desktop version)
    2) at the terminal , type
    git clone git://git.webos-internals.org/tools/meta-doctor.git
    (if necessary, follow the instructions to install git)
    3) make sure you have patch. Type patch at the command line, and if necessary follow instructions to download it
    4) install java (applications/add remove/show: all available applications/java 6 runtime)
    5) install the palm sdk (actually you only need the novacmd part). Instructions at developer.palm.com
    6) download the rom jar to the /meta-doctor/downloads folder
    rename download to webosdoctorp100ewwsprint-1.2.0.jar
    check you have the right one using this page Webos Doctor Versions - WebOS Internals

    Doing it
    -----------
    5) navigate to the meta-doctor directory in the terminal and type
    make CARRIER=sprint unpack patch pack
    6) updated version will be in the build/pre... folder
    7) make sure palm is connected to your virtual machine (check the VMWare menu)
    8) run it with java -jar webosdoctor...

    There is no way of knowing until someone tries it.

    It definitely should allow the wifi connection to be configured before the First Use application is run ...

    I tried. IT WORKS

    that is, activation is bypassed and I have access to all the settings and apps

    however as it is an Irish Pre, it is sim locked and I do not have access to the phone

    I can use wifi for web browsing, messaging etc but I cannot create a palm profile ('profile cannot be created please contact palm') and the updates app reports in cannot connect ('try again later')

    OK, so the Meta-Doctor works as advertised. It is not a carrier unlocking tool (that's between you and your carrier's Terms of Service).

    Thanks for reporting the success. At least now you can ssh into the device and work on the other problem

    i got everything ready , i complied the meta-doctor did the instructions and waited for my pre to come so i can hack cos i knew it wont pass the activation.
    my pre came i put my sim in it, turn it on, and its working no problem at all.
    i wanted to test this for the community, but im sorry
    Joetemp i am new to this as well it took me a while but i got to work
    so what you need to do now is this
    Doing it
    -----------
    5) navigate to the meta-doctor directory in the terminal and type
    make CARRIER=sprint unpack patch pack
    6) updated version will be in the build/pre... folder
    7) make sure palm is connected to your virtual machine (check the VMWare menu)
    8) run it with java -jar webosdoctor...

    before typing make CARRIER.......
    in terminal type
    cd /home/uruser/meta-doctor

    the rest is self-explanatory
    if you need help please let know

    You will still need to install Fair Dinkum App Limit to remove the first 64MiB installed apps limit. You will no longer need to worry about the second 100MiB free space limit.

    Hi,

    I got myself a german pre and used meta-doctor and it worked like a charm. It bypassed the profile creation and I had access to the pre...yeah. I then configured my wi-fi connection and hooray, I could create a palm profile.

    Via the wi-fi connection I can browse the net and do e-mail, youtube etc. etc. I can make and receive calls. Everything seems to work perfectly.

    I have only one problem, or maybe I'm doing something wrong or I don't know what I'm doing (). I'm trying to setup GPRS/HSDPA to connect to my mobile provider. Any ideas?

    Thanks.
