I have a Palm Pre running webOS 1.3.1. I bought it at eBay for the purpose of replacing my dying 12 year old Palm Vx which I use for the sole purpose of syncing with my data in Palm Desktop v 4.1.4. But since Palm Pre, a Palm manufactured pda, doesn't sync out of the box with Palm Desktop (what a shame), I'm considering purchasing CompanionLink to fill the void. But CompanionLink requires the use of CL USB Sync which won't run on webOS 1.3.1 (that's what the webOS Quick Installer says).
Another reason to upgrade is that the App Catalog is Beta in 1.3.1 and doesn't work.
So what I *think* I need is webOS 1.4.5. But when I go to download it at http://palm.com/rom and put in my serial number, it will only let me download webosdoctorp100ewwsprint-1.3.1.jar (v 1.3.1). Bummer!
Is there some other way to upgrade to webOS 1.4.5? Or am I stuck with 1.3.1? Thanks.
I found a WebOS Doctor for the Sprint Pre (webosdoctorp100ewwsprint.jar - 211mb) at WebOS Doctor Versions - WebOS Internals. Will this work straight up or does it first need to be tweaked? Thanks!
