Notes and Assumptions
- 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.
- 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 and novacom on your computer (you will need this if you have to recover)
How to Recover
- 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're not going to have Preware.
- Check the MD5 sum of the ipkg, which should match this: 20501828cc5b29200a0a3feaf8535dd4
% cd ~/Downloads
% md5sum org.webosports.palm-lunasysmgr_3.0.5-3_arm.ipk
- OS X
% cd ~/Downloads
% md5 org.webosports.palm-lunasysmgr_3.0.5-3_arm.ipk
