    Hello...Hope this Forum is still active .................my HP Touchpad is as old as 2012. It is a wonderful device, you all will agree.
    I tried all the usual tricks like preware, etc. One day, it didn't start up and i lost interest.... some error message was there.
    So there it was lying all these years and suddenly i remembered about it, a couple of days back.
    After going through this forum...particularly helpful threads from Grabber5.0, fuddy78, GMMan, Preemptive , etc,
    I went through the webOS Doctor/ Activation by-pass, etc.
    Everything worked very smoothly...and my Touchpad is back on the Home-screen or the Card.
    But there is one problem.... the Touchscreen, doesn't seem to be working.
    In some areas it is responding, but not like it is supposed to do.
    It is an effort just to get rid of the Screen-lock... the card menus are not responding, once in a while, from some points... but not normally.
    Typing on the keypad is not possible... so no way of getting into the Developer mode...I guess?
    So... now how to proceed? Any other way to use this otherwise wonderful device?
    Plz remember, i could do the WebOS Doctor and the Activation-bypass well... Novacom, etc launched alright and the device could be revived.
    Only the Touchscreen issue has left me in a bind.
    Thanks in advance

    There are a few things that could be the issue.

    1. The battery might have bulged and pressed the touchscreen, so inspect your Touchpad to make sure that's not the case.
    2. You might need to simply calibrate the touchpad, see https://forums.webosnation.com/hp-to...ml#post3405928 on how to do this.

    Herrie .... how is it possible to get into Developer mode, when the touchscreen, isn't working...and nothing can be typed?
    I have the Devicetool.jar downloaded though. Is there any way of invoking the Developer Mode through a connected laptop?
    Thanks

    To be honest I never used DeviceTool.jar myself. I always used NovaDeviceInstaller (NDI) to flash in recent years instead of Doctor and in NDI you can switch on Developer Mode right away.
