    So I suppose that means, that effectively there is no backup. For even if one were to forgo restoring the data and simply adds all the accounts and apps again manually, the backup would not be usable the next time you need to doctor. Right? Hmm.. looks like in the end this is just not worth it. Specially since the update to 3.0.4 is not available anymore. Although I tell you, the improvements in the browser and to some extent improvements in performance, does make it hard to let go of 3.0.3. Why can't Palm/HP hurry up and release an OTA, even if it is with just the improved browser. I am sure that in itself would shutup a lot of people's genuine complaints and some people's whining.

    Apple actually has a patent on that "fix" .. Palm needs to work around that patent

    Apple granted patent on webpage scrolling behaviors, media granted patent on crazy | This is my next...
    Lots of other ways to do this. For example, touch and hold outside the frame with one finger while scrolling inside the frame. Or touch inside the frame to "select" the frame area and then scroll in it. They just need to pick something.

    that's so ridiculous, that's like patenting a mouse, so that only one type of computer can have a mouse, or a keyboard, or any other input method

    didn't apple steal windows anyway? they really should STFU about general things that all mobile devices should have

    Of course, this is for the good people that use a webOS device as intended, not for the people that just got here because a stupid firesale and are just waiting to put Android on their TouchPads to give it the final finishing blow.

    Windows were originally developed by Xerox in the 60's - along with a mouse.

    they are already floating around via unofficial sources and
    seem to work fine for those folks.... however, I'd rather
    wait for the official version.
    It has to be done the HP way. I expect it to be released when the last batch of TP's hit the market. That way current and new owners trying to upgrade at the same time will crash HP's servers and no one will be able to get it.

    I would never put android on my TouchPad. I don't like it and whenever I have had a dual boot the android version was never touched as it seems so patchy to me.

    Yes i would never had purchased a Touchpad at full price but at the firesale price it is silly not to buy one.

    WebOS is great and I will use it on my TouchPad until there is a version of Windows 8.

    Is 3.0.4 officially available?

    If so, any Preware that we need to uninstall first like Uberkernal and Govnah?

    Just themes. Patches take a few days to get ported to the new version
