Default Touchpad stuck in a read only mode

I have a TP with WebOS 3.0.5, Moboot 0.3.8, and CM10.1.

Whenever I reboot my device, any changes I make are reset. I can't load a new ROM. I can copy files to my SD Card and use them, but when I reboot, the files are gone. I see this is an ongoing issue. But most threads are old. Any fix for this? I just want to be able to run WebOS doctor now, but it won't work. It stops at 12% and says Unable to Reset. I have tried all the various WebOS doctor versions from 3.0.0 to 3.0.5.

Thanks,

Cool thanks. This looks like it could be the thing. Do you recommend I do a Full Data Reset to delete both WebOS and Android, then Create WebOS Volume to prep the device for WebOS, then WebOS doctor to get back to factory? Then if all goes well, then re-install Android?

I ask because the Full Data Reset sounds scary. I hope I can still access Moboot from there, for whatever that's worth.

I posted in the Toobox thread, but just fyi, can you believe, Complete Reset didn't work! It's like my Touchpad is in read only mode.
