    but if it winds up burning up processors in say 3 months or so they may start to have a problem with it and try to fix it (though there is no evidence it will)

    As long as WebOS is open source I don't think they can prevent it, only make it more difficult.

    Why would they do this? They are the anti-Apple. lol

    They can and did! they changed the kernel from 1.3.5.1 to 1.4, So every time palm changes the kernel w/ an update it will break the patch and have to be rewritten, just like any other patch.

    If palm modifies the section that a patch touches that patch will have to be modified!

    Im not saying they change things to screw us up, they are doing it to make the Pre better for the masses.
    Contrary to popular belief we here at PreCentral are not the masses.

    We here are less than 5% of the Palm users so there is no reason for Palm to mess w/ us.

    i would think we are more like 10% but im probably just being optimistic

    If Palm has sold....lets say 2m units world wide then 5% would mean we have 100000 members.


    Anybody know how many members we have here?

    Well they did break RebelSIM through 1.4 though... but not sure if it was Qualcomm.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    WebOS is not open source. WebOS is a proprietary copyrighted work from Palm. Some of it happens to be written in readable Javascript, but it is not open source.

    The Linux operating system (including the kernel and a lot of the userspace linux applications) on which webOS runs is open source.

    Preware and the other homebrew applications from WebOS Internals are also all open source. And all the patches you install using Preware are open source too.

    And the members that have other phones. PreCentral isn't really its own forum; it's a subset of TreoCentral.
    Treo 300 > Hitachi G1000 > PPC-6700 > PPC-6800 (Mogul) > PPC-6850 (Touch Pro) > Palm Pre & HTC EVO Optimus V
