Default HP Touchpad Toolbox not working????

So I downloaded all the files that I need and start with a fully charged touchpad. I currently am running an older version of android on it with webos, but decided since I have not used webos in over 2 years, why not wipe it clean, install a new version of android and just leave off webos.

Now with everything in place, I connect the touchpad in recovery mode, start touchpad toolbox, i see the commands scroll on the touchpad screen for maybe 1 or 2 seconds and it then just reboots itself. Am I missing something or is this just not working?

I even thought maybe I was running low on storage and did a factory reset of android to wipe everything that was installed off with no luck.

I just want to wipe this clean and do a fresh install of kitkat or whatever. dont need anything else on it, dont even need the multiboot. Any recommendations out there?????

I have heard no reports of what you describe.

I suggest using TPToolbox v41 from here (download link in that post):
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=293

and try again.

If it does it again, I will need to see a kernel log file to help diagnose what's happening.
To get that, following the instructions on this post:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...8&postcount=10

but replace steps 1-3 with:
1) Load Touchpad Toolbox
2) Start holding the Volume Up button
3) Continue to hold VolUP until you see the big USB symbol (i.e. webOS recovery)

Default Errgghh

Downloaded but not sure what is going on. I think the problem my be with something being overwritten during one of the first attempts. With the USB logo displayed, I connect it to the PC. The minute it starts to transfer, it resets and I see the hp logo and then the boot screen. At this point it is stuck in a rebooting loop for several times. I even just tried webos doctor and it starts at 1% and as soon as it hits 2% it reboots the same way.

Also will not mount as a USB drive on the PC. Just as a palm noobie or something so I can not access anything on the device manually.

While I have not experience your issue I have had other issues that were resolved by changing to a different USB cable. Might be worth a try.
