webOS 2.2 doctor for Pre3 released

For the handful of you that have managed to secure an HP Pre3, you can rest easy in the knowledge that the OS on your phone is now safe to toy around with: the webOS Doctor has arrived. HP yesterday finally released the Doctor for webOS 2.2 on the Pre3, meaning that should you manage to somehow screw up the OS, you can easily reload it and start fresh.

More exciting, however, is the homebrew potential. Those picking through the Doctor have already discovered the SD card support lurking in webOS 2.2, but we’re excited to see what else might be pulled out and made available to other devices. Particularly, we’re interested to see Enyo support and phone/messaging sharing spread across webOS devices thanks to WebOS InternalsMeta-Doctor, as well Touch-to-Share finally getting enabled on the HP Veer. Of course, there’s no guarantee’s that such feats can be accomplished, but you can rest assured that if there’s anything the webOS homebrew community can try, they’ll try.
