    From How To Recover - WebOS Internals

    With the USB cable connected, completely power off the Pre (hold down the power button until the option to power off appears)
    Hold down the Up button on the volume rocker
    While holding the Up button, power on the Pre
    "Next" should now be enabled - proceed with the recovery
    That should put it into recovery mode, which usually aids in flashing Doctors

    What if this doesn't work? My will start the process, then WebOS Doctor will get to about 8% and then it will tell me that my Pre is disconnected. There is nothing on the screen, but you can tell the screen is still on.

    Are you sure you're using the correct version of webOS Doctor? Also, make sure you are following the instructions on How To Recover to the letter.

    Webosinternals's website also has % stop errors I'm pretty sure.. It'll tell you what exactly the problem is.

    This page will help you with any Palm Pre recovery problem, including Doctor failures at various points along the way (including the 8% mark, as well as many other % marks). The instructions on this page work for all flavors of the Pre +/-.

    My issue, doctoring stops at 4% because that's when the phone switches on, so it basically disconnects from the USB, how do I solve this?

    Do one of the following to put your device in USB update mode:

    1)If your device is frozen: Press and hold the power button while pressing the center button 10 times. This puts the device in a powered-down state with a black screen. Then press and hold the power and volume up buttons until you see the large USB icon.
    2)Press and hold the power button until the buttons appear and tap Shut Down. After shutdown completes, press and hold the power and volume up buttons until you see the large USB icon.

    This procedure not working.

    Was sucked into Palm when I bought the glorious Treo650, somehow subsequent phones didn't live up to expectations.
