So..... I'm trying to fix my friend's TouchPad and having no luck what so ever. I'll describe the problem the best I can and then tell you what we've tried so far.
In a nutshell, it seems almost like the drive inside the touchpad is write protected.
I can delete and add files no problem but if I either
Restart Luna: It does a sort of "half reset" and start acting weird. Preware might not work properly or sometimes the app catalog won't connect. Plus all the icons rearrange themselves to their factory setting with my downloaded apps (both store and preware) being bundled together under the downloads tab.
Restart Touchpad: Any changes made during the previous session get reverted back to a point about a week ago (not factory default). Everything from icon positions, apps installed to even content on the touchpad. For example I could delete a movie or a song from my library, restart the device and the file would reappear. It's like it reflashes an earlier image of itself. (Skynet has become self aware?)
So here is what I've tried so far.
Full Erase: Nothing happens. Device restarts and we're back to square one.
Secure Full Erase: Same thing.
WebOS Doctor: Doctor starts up... I click through the screens, progress bar appears. Usually somewhere before 28% Doctor just quits and says it had an issue resetting my TouchPad and to go to the support page. The support page is useless, just tells me to re-download and restart/connect both my devices. Which I have done.
(I'm also using the latest version of WebOS Doctor and the ToucPad is on 3.0.2)....
I also tried running WebOS Doctor from Dev. mode (Hard Reset TouchPad and then hold Power+VolUp)
When I restart the device after a WebOS Doctor attempt, things revert back to the same state as before.
ps: The touchpad functions fine otherwise. Everything runs it's just....stuck....
