    Hi, I'm starting to play with a Palm Pre 2, I've read a lot and I've already downloaded many files that I found. However, I would like to ask you how to perform the bypass, I have two doubts:

    How is the bypass performed on a regular basis? (Required files, procedure, etc.)

    How can I create a Doctor that omits the activation of my Pre 2? (Required files, procedure, etc.)

    Thank you. I hope there are still WebOS users who can read my words this year 2019!

    It should be easy on a Pre 2. This is only necessary if the phone is 'new', reset or 'doctored' (reinstalled operating system). Otherwise, leave it. It should not be necessary to do this more than once, unless you again reset, doctor, etc.

    https://www.webosnation.com/bypass-activation-webos-2-x
    ...all you need to do is type in a code into the dialpad using the keyboard from the Device Activation Screen. For GSM devices, type #*DEVMODE# (#*3386633#) into the dialpad and then press the "call" button. For CDMA devices, type ##DEVMODE# (there is no need to press the silver/Option key to access the symbols, and once you type #* or ## into the physical keyboard, the dialpad will automatically appear). The Developer Mode app will load up. Just turn it on and your phone will reboot into a bypassed activation mode.
    You'll need an already activated SIM card to insert for cellular service. You then get webOS Quick Install on your computer to side load apps. You could start with Preware, the onboard installer.

    Thank you very much for those good tutorials!

    They told me that in Linux it is possible to create a personalized medical image (with meta-doctor) that will omit activation by default. Can you pass me some good tutorial on this procedure? Is it possible to do this in Windows?

    This doubt is only out of curiosity:
    Devicetool.jar was only necessary for WebOS 1.x? Does not work with WebOS 2.x? (I know there is a much easier method for 2.x thanks to developer mode).

    Sorry for my bad English, I'm learning.

    I believe you are referring to the meta doctor: Application:MetaDoctor - WebOS Internals

    But why do you want to do this? The process is largely intended for developers who may wish to regularly reinstall the OS in a particular state after their experiments. Another example is that some on this forum are investigating the creation of a meta-doctor that includes updates and fixes.

    The 'universal' device tool apparently supports all other models. I think that includes webOS 2.x models, but again, I would have thought entering a code (once) is easier.

    Activation only needs to be done once after the reset / doctor process, not after a reboot. You likely only need the more complex methods if you intend to do development work.
