WebOS profile setup via wifi

Configuring the WebOS profile through wifi is a little bit tricky since the "first-launch" application does not allow to configure wifi before creating the profile. Here are the few steps needed to do this.
  • Enable developer mode if the device was already activated on another profile, or use MetaDoctor to flash a firmware with developer mode enabled. 
  • Once the device is started, launch a shell on it via "novaterm".
  • On the shell, type "touch /var/luna/preferences/ran-first-use" to bypass the start of the "first-launch" application.
  • Type "pkill LunaSysMgr" to restart luna (the ui environment). The device should start without "first-launch" being started.
  • Enable wifi.
  • On the shell, type "rm /var/luna/preferences/ran-first-use"
  • Type "pkill LunaSysMgr" to restart luna. "first-launch" should start prompting to create a new profile. This is now possible since the wifi connection is ready.
  • Create a new profile
