Meta-Doctoring: Part 4 - Building the New Doctor File

Continuing to play around with applying an unofficial version of webOS 2.1.0 to my Sprint Original Palm Pre smartphone, I've installed all the required tools to get the job done.

I've also taken the precaution to backup my PRL software so I can continue to apply Sprint preferred roaming list updates once the upgrade to webOS 2.1.0 has completed.

Now, I'm running the Unix command line tools on my Mac to download the webOS 2 doctor files, mash them all together, and churn out a new custom meta-doctored webOS doctor restore file.

There is a lot of Unix "gook" scrolling across my Terminal window which, I have to admit, not being a Unix/Linux propeller head, I have no idea what it's doing.  (I know my limits and I'm not a programmer nor am I a Unix geek.  I know just enough Unix and Linux to get myself in to serious trouble!)


So, with Daft Punk's Tron soundtrack thumping in the back ground, the lights down low, I'll grab my eighth Diet Coke for this project, and get to installing the new webOS Doctor!
