Well, thanks to JCsullins !! (and all the others...)

I just used tptoolbox to resuscitate my TP which was sleeping with android 4.0 for a while in a desk...

I now use it as a "media solution" to stream Google Music and my movies (bubbleupnp/ or plex) from the NAS to my TV and my stereo... awesome ! (i prefer having a device at home dedicated to that job than using my phone...)

i wouldn't have done it without tptoolbox, it was boring and time-consuming before that ...

I couldn't get the HP toolbox to recognize the novacom driver / service, even though I could run acme and communicate / query the TP.

Anyways, was running 4.4.2 can't remember which build. Updated to the jscullin 4.4.4 6/25?

Reading through the forums I didn't really see many instructions for this update path. Ended up copying the install .zip to the TP and ran install .zip from clockworkmod in the boot menu. Figured they were both 4.4.x and this shouldn't be an issue.

After the .zip load the TP booted and updated android with no problems. Optimized apps ect. When I logged in I had a few app updates but nothing major.

Impressed with 4.4.4 so far. I use chromecast to watch football (american), and it works flawless. Not a Netflix fan so no comment, although I think it would work fine since watchespn / YouTube cast w/o issue.

I don't use Bluetooth so...

Seems stable, not a single freeze or anything like that.

Just wanted to say that a "dirty" flash from 4.4.2 to 4.4.4 works fine, at least for me and I didn't need to restore all my apps etc.

Been running android on this puppy for a few years now. Had access to an "early" device.

The doctor listed in post #64 is "webosdoctorp305hstnhatt.jar" which gave me the error
The doctor I used is "webosdoctorp305hstnhatt.jar" which worked fine

not sure what the difference is, but wanted to post this for non-devs like me.
Oops, I used the link for the Touchpad 4G instead of Touchpad Wifi. Corrected to include both appropriately labelled.

My ttinstall folder contains:

I'm assuming the last is my recovery. I've done the complete data reset three times, with the same issue. If I choose reboot, I get:

Any idea on what's going on? Is there a "standard" recovery file I should try instead to make this work? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Please try the version of Touchpad Toolbox (v41) I just released in this post:

Note that you will need to use one of the new Recoveries linked from that post.

If you still have problems with that version of TPToolbox, let me know in this thread.
