Installing webOS 2.1.0 on legacy webOS devices
Palm has only officially released webOS 2.1.0 for the Pre 2 device, and the German O2 Pre+ device.
Using the WebOS Internals MetaDoctor tool, the webOS 2.1.0 doctor for German O2 Pre+ devices can be modified by an end-user and installed on any other Pre- or Pre+ device.
See the webOS Internals wiki page for more details:

Note that all of the above is done without breaking any copyright laws or illegally redistributing proprietary copyright material. It would be good to keep it that way. Time will tell how what conventions of legality are enforced by the moderators on these new XDA webOS forums.
