Notes and Assumptions

  • You have at least skimmed WebOS Internals' Basic Linux Use page.
  • You are downloading files to your default download directory, ~/Downloads, using your browser.
  • "~" is Unix/Linux shorthand for the location of your home directory.
  • "%" represents the command prompt in your terminal window.
  • The commands you can cut and paste are in bold.

Requirements

  • Computer running Ubuntu Linux or Mac OS X
  • 'Developer Mode' enabled on your TouchPad (How To Enable Developer Mode)
  • Install the appropriate versions of the Palm SDK-PDK (you will need this if you have to recover) and novacom on your computer (the novacom install is on the SDK-PDK install page).
  • Install Save/Restore from Preware on your TouchPad and set it to back up your app data daily.
  • Check that the Palm Backup app backups are "on" and that your data is being backed up to their servers daily.


How to Recover

  1. Download the stock Palm LunaSysMgr 3.0.5-3 to your computer. This is the same recovery package that you can install with Preware, but if something goes really wrong, you won't be able to run Preware.
  2. Open a terminal window (Linux) or Terminal.app (OS X).
  3. Using that window, go to your downloads directory and check the MD5sum (fingerprint) of the ipkg, which should match this string: 20501828cc5b29200a0a3feaf8535dd4
    • for Linux type
      % cd ~/Downloads
      % md5sum org.webosports.palm-lunasysmgr_3.0.5-3_arm.ipk
    • for OS X type
      % cd ~/Downloads
      % md5 org.webosports.palm-lunasysmgr_3.0.5-3_arm.ipk
  4. If the fingerprint strings do not match, something may have gone wrong. Delete the file you just downloaded and download another copy.
