WebOS for the Hero? Soon…

It seems that ever since the introduction of mobile devices into this world, crowds and masses have enjoyed a wide variety of OS flavors, depending on their needs and lifestyle. However, due to the relatively high prices on these “toys” most people can only afford to have one or two, which limits the amount of playtime one gets with other available OS systems. Because of this, maybe a bit of boredom, and the eternal quest to get the most out of our investments, projects like this one are born. Starting a new discussion and resource thread, XDA member mrinehart93 has decided to bring forth a project to have webOS ported to the HTC Hero. This new Frankenstein would, when completed, allow people who are used to Palm’s new OS to switch back and forth between Android and WebOS.

Keep in mind that this is still in very early stages of development, but it should be possible to accomplish this for such a great device.

Hey guys. I’m just starting this thread now so that we can collaborate on attempting a port of WebOS (Palm Pre/Pixi operating system) to our HTC Hero. I know there is another thread about porting WebOS in here, but that was more of a discussion to get people interested. So this thread will be for collaboration and development.

Interested? Drop by the discussion thread and see if you can help out with anything.

Which OEM Would You Like to Help?

Most manufacturers have moments of greatness and moments of decadence, and in the past few years we've some of our favorite companies' tables turned. Some are stagnating, some are struggling, some lack direction. Despite this, we often hold them dear to our hearts. Many of them could use a hand, be it with design, marketing, or other tasks. If you could help out an OEM and take it back to its golden days, which one would it be?

Root T-Mobile S6/Edge on 5.1.1 Without Tripping Knox

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process. It's a slippery slope...
