Open webOS OE booted on Asus Transformer Prime

A month ago, intrepid webOS developer Steven Troughton-Smith got to tinkering with the then newly-released Open webOS OpenEmbedded beta, and managed to get it to boot relatively quickly on his Asus Transformer Prime tablet (a rather hackable piece of Android hardware). Today, with the full 1.0 version of Open webOS OE available to open source, Troughton-Smith went back to his Transformer Prime and worked a little bit more homebrew magic. We don't have complete details on the status of the port, though if it's anything like the Galaxy Nexus Open webOS port put together by WebOS Ports, there's likely still some work to be done. Regardless, we're glad to see it happen, and are already day-dreaming of the day when we'll be running Open webOS on whatever hardware we desire
