    So as we all know the 2.1 doctor is out for o2 and woi is making a meta doctor for US pre users to use. However, I just read that they can't distribute it because it would be illigal.. Does this mean that I would have to make my own meta doctor to put 2.1 on my pre plus? I know a pretty good amount, but not enough to make my own meta doctor. I do want to wait till a more stable doctor comes out.

    I believe you're confusing things.
    MetaDoctor is a tool used to package up custom webos Doctors. It is not illegal to distribute it, or the instructions on how to package custom Doctors.

    What IS illegal is to create a custom doctor for, say, a Verizon Pre+ and distribute that.

    So unless HP releases a 2.x webOS doctor for your carrier and device you will need to use the metadoc procedure to get 2.x.

    The other alternative i believe, is if a third party were to offer this as a service.

    Edit: Your question was basically answered by someone more knowledgeable than i, find that here.

    Actually, the Meta-Doctor is a custom made doctor made by the tool that Rod has developed. Distributing Meta-Doctors is illegal.

    Making a custom doctor for anything is not illegal in itself, but yes to distribute it is.

    webOSWorld.com is seriously considering adding a Meta-Doctor service to their list of services (along with the Sprint Pre 2 service...). I'd say if the demand is enough for it, we'll most probably offer it.

    *Actually* , I use the term Meta-Doctor for the tool, and "custom doctor" for the output.
