So I received a fresh Pixi Plus today but I do not want to activate it yet, just mess around with it before I have to activate it. I found two solutions. One of which is devicetool which I would run through command prompt and would bypass for me. This, however, would not connect to my Pixi as windows can't find drivers. If anybody has Win7 drivers that would help.
The other solution is this:

But it claims that I shouldn't bypass activation if I plan on using the Cellular Radio. Will I really not be able to use it as a phone if I follow the guide?
Edit: Seems I got it. Just needed the Palm SDK heh
Hopefully I can still activate later though :/

I couldn't get into Dev Mode because the activation screen wouldn't let me pass. I got it though. I will be activating this though. I am really enjoying WebOS right now. Very clean.

I have attached an edited driver for Windows 7 in a zip. Just extract zip, unplug device, install the driver, plug in device, enjoy.
