Overclocking kernels for webOS 2.1 now available; speed demons rejoice

by Jonathan I Ezor#IM Tue, 01 Mar 2011 2:06 am EST

As expected, within just a few hours of Palm making the source code for the webOS 2.1 kernel available, forum member unixpsycho and others within the webOS Internals team have worked their magic. Multiple overclocked versions of the kernel have appeared within the Preware testing feed, along with the stock Palm 2.1 kernel for recovery purposes. (The older versions of the various kernels will remain available as well, but unixpsycho tweeted that there will be no further development work done on them.)

As with all previous such efforts, only users who are comfortable risking having to redoctor their devices to original spec, potentially losing saved data and possibly bending or breaking a warranty should experiment with these kernels. Read all the relevant warnings and instructions in the forums as well.
