Its not "upgrade", its more proof of concept. 2.1 is not for everyday use, but some elements are faster than 1.4.5.

I have a Pre forgotten in some drawer with 2.1. I had to change the kernel (F104@1.2GHz) and some another tweak. A little laggy and not fast than expected, but anyway was pretty usable

It seems like more trouble than its worth to me too .

I have a spare Verizon Palm Pixi Plus and could try this . However I would spend a lot of time getting it to WEB OS 2.1. Even if successful , I would still wind up having phone with limited capabilities (and far few choices of applications compared Android) .

I have an old Pre Plus sitting in a drawer as well.. great, easy to use OS, but the support has withered away to nothing.

I can't imagine 2.1 working well on the Pixi Plus, given the limited hardware.

I did this a little less than a year ago, it's easy, you just copy and paste commands into Terminal in Linux.

I liked the newer look, but 2.1 doesn't support all of the Preware, kernels and tweaks and such as 1.5.1 does. Also I couldn't access the Palm Store or whatever it was called....
