[Q] TouchPad doesnt boot - very very tricky - how to solve?
my TouchPad seems to be in a boot loop, or bootloader is corrupt, dunno.
I am using linux, btw.
I did install CM7 since after the first alpha release and upgraded each release without a hassle. I had both OS parallel for a long time dual booting regulary, but using Android more and more often.
Since Christmas then I havent even been in WebOs.
Two weeks ago, I started WebOS again, and got a message to update my software.
I clicked yes.
Then it took an hour or so and the Pad rebooted ..... and got stuck - never came up again since then.
It just stays a bit where the round HP sign comes up, and reboot after a minute or so.
here is the dmesg:

I tried a hard reset, and same same happens again:
It resets, the hp logo shows up, then after a minute it reboots again.
So after this I tried to use memboot. but I can't get even into usb mode!
Holding Volume up + Power does exactly nothing! Novacom doesn't recognize my TouchPad.
Holding Volume down + Home + Power does nothing as well - despite throwing this into dmesg:

btw, webdoctor certainly doesnt recognize my device, neither in linux nor in windows 7 - nonetheless it shows up in explorer as palm device without device drivers installed (yes I did install novacom drivers in Windows as well as in linux).
What to do now? Any hints?
