Default 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:

http://www.webos-internals.org/wiki/WebOS_2_Upgrade

There is an existing forum thread with a lot of troubleshooting information at:

http://bit.ly/webos-210-meta-doctor

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.

In particular, it is illegal to redistribute any webOS Doctor files, including any custom webOS Doctor which has been created by the WebOS Internals MetaDoctor. Each end-user must run the tool themselves for their own personal device.

It would almost make more sense to have the meta-doctor script install uberkernel by default on pre - 's, not to say that performance isnt grand, but it would be nice to have the playing field leveled between the different devices.

Since it's a single click in Preware to install it afterwards, this is not an issue for most people. They should also experience the stock device before deciding whether they wish to overclock, lest they be unappreciative of the extra speed.

Remember that in webOS homebrewing, you can install and uninstall kernels at will without affecting any other data on the device. You do not need to reflash the whole device.

I do think though that it would make sense for the Metadoctor to at least install Preware by default..

You can choose that option in the Makefile.

It's not 100% reliable for some reason, so it's not enabled by default.

You mean just like any other illegally redistributed copyright proprietary file?

Warez (which is exactly what you are requesting) is against the rules of this forum.

Read the wiki and create your own legal webOS doctor (it's not a rom, BTW) and flash it on your own webOS device. Don't share it illegally.

The above quote is exactly true. Please do not request warez here. I am giving you the benefit of the doubt and assuming you did not know of what you asked. Now you know.

Thanks
