    How do I get Classic Emulator to run on Pre 3 if at all do able that is?

    Is anyone, homebrew or otherwise, working on how to get old palmOS progarms to run on webOS.... if so it would be great, also would be nice to be able to loose the gray buttons and make it full screen!!

    Any help greatly appreciated and thanks in advance loving the new Pre 3. if anyone needs help getting one from UK please let me know and I will endeavour to assist esp if you are a dev although I believe it will eventually surface in US anyway..

    The instructions are here: http://forums.precentral.net/general...ml#post2903004. The instructions are for using the Pre and Pre2 webOS Doctor files. Might not work on a Pre3 due to the screen resolution difference. Unfortunately, I'm in the US with no access to Pre3 hardware. I'll try it on a Veer to see whether there are screen size dependencies.

    I've gone through the Pre2 v2.0.1 and v2.1.0, Veer v2.1.2 and Pre3 v2.2.0 webOS doctors. Only the Pre2 webOS v2.0.1 doctor file contains the necessary components. They are all specific to Motion Apps (AKA Classic).

    webos-internals.org has a Wiki page on where to get the doctor files. HP/Palm explicitly prohibits re-distribution of doctor files or anything containing derivative works.

    If you follow Arthur's instructions, you should be able build an ipkg file that can be installed via webOS QuickInstall. I'm doing this on a Windows machine, but might switch to a Linux VM if necessary. I'll post back Veer results here and to Arthur's thread. I'll probably try the package on my Touchpad too, but I'm not sure what value that would have.

    Seems as if I've hit a dead-end. Got all the bits together, but I never acquired Classic for my Sprint Pre. For some reason, I can't access the App Catalog from the Pre and there is no other way to get the Classic package to use for verification.

    Edit: the App Catalog made me a liar. Got Classic now, but of course, I don't have a serial number and the trial version timed out a long time ago. (sigh)

    Classic on the Pre3 and Touchpad would still be very useful - just importing all my data in its various categories from my TX would make life sweet!

    I read it wasn't working on the Pre3 here: http://forums.precentral.net/webos-d...ml#post3139189

    I did manage to get it on the Veer, but I don't have a license, so I think it will expire after a while.

    Could there be a resolution issue? I wonder if there are any files we can patch to get this running, I really want Warfare Inc on my Pre3!
