Touchpad Mod Upgrades – Bump to Cyanogenmod Alpha 2 and WebOS 3.0.4 while maintaining dual boot heaven (easy)

Note: I performed the below from Ubuntu 11.04 x64

After this process, you will be on CM7 a2 (newest Cyanogenmod – steps 1-2) and WebOS 3.0.4 (newest – steps 3).  Once you pull the WebOs update, moboot (what let you pick which OS to boot to) will no longer be the active bootloader.  But we have you covered (steps 4 – 7) – you will be booting via moboot in no time flat!  WOOT!

 

1) Download CM7 a2 update from here (http://rootzwiki.com/showthread.php?4011)
2) Upgrade to CM7 alpha 2 via clockworkmod Clockworkmod using the file obtained from step 1
3) After CM7 upgrade, reboot into web os and pull 3.0.4 OTA WebOs update
4) Connect Touchpad to PC and put in USB mode.
5) Create ‘cminstall’ folder on touchpad and then copy ‘update-moboot_0.3.3.zip’ to the folder (should have this file from when you installed CM7 a1).
6) Eject Touchpad and restart into USB Mode (Large White USB Icon) by  holding “Power + Volume Up”
7) Locate the ACMEInstaller that you originally loaded CM7a1 on your touchpad with and execute “novacom boot mem:// < ACMEInstaller” from terminal and let it do its magic…

You are up to date to date and dual booting again with the latest and greatest.

 

Disclaimer: Do this at your own peril.  I accept no responsibility for your clearly questionable judgement – an observation supported by your doing of random things that strangers on the Interwebs tell you to do to your expensive electronic devices for hopes of some supposed small technical gain… You have been warned of your insanity. This said, everything here worked perfectly for me 😀

Another weekend gone…

And as you may or may not know, this is a subject I am not generally super happy about…
Here I sit, 30 until midnight – acting as if I am a 4yr old fighting sleep.

Unlike a 4yr old fighting sleep, I am not tired.
I just do not want to go quickly nor quietly as my weekend is tore from me.

We were not done enjoying each others company nor ready to relinquish our time.

Under what authority am I being forced to forge ahead into yet another Monday?!

A travesty, I say!

I still assert that we ought time travel to meet with the man who originally setup the week of 5-and-2 –
So that we may have a very direct conversation about his askew arrangement
and impose our argument to right his horrible, horrible wrong.

Bah. Hum. Hum and Bah.
