Fix your TouchPad's lost audio

This tip is only for devices running webOS 3.0 and higher

One of the most annoying bugs in webOS 3.0.2 has got to be when your sound just mysteriously just disappears. Some have said that this may relate to those using a "ringtone" for email notifications, but regardless, it is an issue that seems only to be fixed with a device reboot. However, PreCentral reader Lee Smith (@addiarmadar on Twitter) has given us a simple Homebrew solution that will restart your sounds without the need for a reboot. In order to accomplish this, you will need access to then command line, which can use access on-device with a homebrew app like Xecutah or if you put your device in Developer Mode and hook it up to PC and use webOS Quick Install.

Once you have access to the command prompt, run these two commands:

stop pulseaudio

start pulseaudio

You should see an output similar to the screenshot attached and your sound should return, all without the need to reboot your phone
