Patch talk, future hardware discussion and more... From the Forums 18

by Robert Werlinger Wed, 18 Aug 2010 8:43 am EDT

Here's some of the latest talk from the forums:

  • If you're a Pixi owner and you often encounter performance issues - namely the always annoying "too many cards" issue - then the kind folks over at the webOS Internals group have a solution for you:  a replacement kernel.  Forum members are discussing in this thread about the virtues of installing custom kernels and their preferences in setting up the kernel management software known as Govnah.
  • Palm's next handset release is surely looming just around the corner, and forum members are chatting it up about what they think minimum specs for a flagship level phone should be.  The most popular items include higher-res screens , higher-res cameras, and faster processors.
  • A lot has happened during the time that webOS has been on the market, and dawizel1 in the cross-platform chat forum wants to know if anyone's looking to jump ship to Microsoft's upcoming Windows Phone 7 platform.
  • I personally don't mind it not being there, but there are plenty of webOS users who have been clamoring for a scroll bar in the browser.  There's good news for the lot of you, as TIWizard has created a patch that installs a scroll bar that works in both landscape and portrait modes.

I love the uberkernal and have messed the govnah a bit. My Pre is rolling along nicely.

Yeah me too. Love the performance increase. Try the faster animations patch too. It doesn't do anything for loading times of apps but it shortens the animation time which makes the over all feel of the phone a lot snappier.

what's a forum?

It's the area between your wrist and your elbow.

Comment of the day.

I been using scroll bar in browser since it was created. I forget it's there sometimes since it only show up when you scroll.

since I seem to suck at mastering the PreCentral forum search function... Can someone either confirm or not the existence of bug in 1.4.5.1 on sprint (Pre) where the Notes for Contacts show up with HTML tags in contact records?? I'd like a patch to clean that up as it makes reading info ridiculously hard...

if webOs brings something like the new windows phones is gonna be pretty good just make the screen bigger my eyes get mest up because is too small to read and at least 1 ghz and spell check because my gramar is mest up

I do agree, you do need spell check and have 'gramar' issues

I can't wait fo the new pre well only if it's gonna be as good as the evo or the droid x I want at least something better
something new and not be ashamed of taking out my phone in front of my family that all of them got and android

Hopefully it blows all of the other phones out there away like the iPhone and Droids

I need newhardware period I want 4" high res screen fastest avalible processor, 1gb ram, two cameras for sprint by novermber

You know I haven't minded the wait for the new, vastly improved device. As long as HP/Palm has made sure that this phone DESTROYS the other so-called 'better' offerings from Apple and those running the Android OS. I don't consider the new BB Torch a concern. I want users of other smartphones to be jealous of what I have. I want to not have to always explain what I'm using when asked. I want folks to KNOW what I'm using, and why it IS the best out there.

And is it too much to ask to put it on Sprint

I need better battery and not pay 65 extra dollars for a better one I could use that money to get apps from the small app library

I installed the scrollbar patch and it works great. Awesome stuff!
