How To Install WebOS 2.1 on Older WebOS Devices

Believe it or not, not everything in our beloved xda forums is about Android or Windows Phone 7. There are other alternatives that people use on a daily basis. One such platform is the very proprietary, very closed WebOS, which was developed by one of the pioneers in the field of pdas, Palm. The rights for all of this were recently purchased by HP, which was a lifeline both for Palm as well as for HP who wa falling behind radically to other electronics manufacturers such as Toshiba and Acer. Some of the newest devices featuring WebOS have been blessed with version 2.1 of this OS, and as it is tradition with most devices, older or legacy devices are not upgradable to the latest installment. However, if you are sporting a Palm Pre or similar, you will be glad to know that XDA member rwhitby has posted a very handy, and most importantly, legal, way of upgrading your left for dead device. The process use something call MetaDoctor from WebOS internals which should certainly do the trick for you.

Please leave some feedback if you tried this method and it worked for you.

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.

You can find more information in the original thread.
