    Palm Logo reset loop that cannot be fixed by anything but this:


    1. Plug the USB cable to the charger, charger inserted.
    2. Remove the battery from the Pre.
    3. Hold down the up volume button off to the side.
    4. Put the battery back into the Pre.
    5. Insert the USB cable to the Pre. (should see a large USB logo on the screen)
    6. Can release the up volume button now.
    7. Run the webOS doctor from palm.com/rom.
    8. Plug the USB cable to the PC and Pre when the webOS doctor prompts for it.
    9. Hit next when given the option and let it do its magic.
    I was about to call Sprint to get me another Pre.

    This shouldn't be possible. I thought uberkernel checks whether the palm stock kernel is installed before applying itself. Have you gone onto the irc to get rwhitby's attention?
    Are you running the testing versions or are you running the public realease?

    As for ringing sprint, that should not be an option, take responsibility for your own actions!

    What happened is that I installed the F102 Kernel on somebody's phone here at work and months later they were saying that they were having problems after the 1.45 update like speed and something. So Installed the uberkernel on top of it. LOL my bad... anyways.. I was able to Doctor it.

    well, as long as that worked, you are good to go. I'm sure you had all your apps and preware stuff backed up, so recovery will be easy, yes?

    From that I'm deducing that it was the testing kernel since you installed it months ago.
    However if you updated to 1.4.5 with the kernel installed then it would have removed itself from the pre. Was there not an update for f102 after the update or did you not apply it using Preware?
    I suspect that the f102 kernel was not installed when you installed uberkernel and that it was something related that caused the reboot loop.

    Apparently something went wrong there... because it didn't seem to work.

    I realise that. I think it would be in everyone's best interest if you provided a very detailed bug report of what happened, to the uberkernel thread.

    Actually, the best first step to try when something goes wrong with installing an alpha kernel is to try membooting. It will allow you to boot your device and remove the custom kernel without having to doctor and restore your Palm Profile. Directions here: Memboot - WebOS Internals

    Maybe I missed it, but were these installed with Preware or by another method?
