Hello everyone, I really need some help I am stuck.
I am upgrading from webOS and am trying to use the alpha 2 cm9

After getting to the Palm, inc directory I typed in

novacom boot mem:// <ACMEInstaller2

and i got a message saying

'novacom' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

In my directory I have
ACMEInstaller 2
novacome.exe.exe
novacomd
terminal

help please :((

when you are in palm folder using cmd

try

rename novacome.exe.exe novacom.exe


or just open folder option and uncheck hide extension, and change name from windows

then when you are in that palm folder

try dir  

and see if you find novacom.exe

if you found it, then try just novacom.exe w/o connecting touchpad

if you get unable to find device, then you are golden

if not something is wrong

When I look in the directory of palm, inc it shows it with a double .exe but when I go to the folder it only appears with one .exe

I have no idea what to do

I went into the dir without the touchpad connected and it is with a double .exe

that's because under windows it ignores extension .exe by default and you see under windows it's part of file name so just delete .exe by right click -rename or select file then press F2 and you will be fine

novacom.exe.exe

in your case, novacom.exe is file name and .exe is extension

OR type

rename novacom.exe.exe novacom.exe


If you just want to install it, try

novacom.exe boot mem:// <ACMEInstaller2

ahh thank you sir, you are a great help! I seem to be launched into the next step and hopefully all goes well. You might have to check back if I run into more problems though because I am a noob at this :rolleyes:

make sure you install gapp afterwards otherwise you don't get to access market or any other google apps
you can get gapp from http://goo.im/gapps/

and use the one with ics in the file name and latest version (I think it's gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zip)
