The hulu patch USED to break the app catalog.
What I -think- happened, is a dev at HP was using the hulu patch, got annoyed at the whole app-catalog problem, and removed the app catalog user agent check .
At any rate, the app catalog doesn't appear to care what your user agent is at this point, therefor, the old discussion of broken app catalog is no longer valid. There's still some little complaints, like oddball things happening in the catalog (back button not working etc) but I'm not sure if that's a patch-issue, or a general app catalog issue . Either way, it's a nice step forward and it sure was nice of HP/Palm to finally remove that annoying little constraint.
Prior to them removing it, I tried all sorts of strings to gain access to both hulu -and- the app catalog, but it was simply impossible to satisfy both.
