WebOS Internals releases Enyo for unloved webOS smartphones

Back in October, HP pushed an update to the Maps app that both switched the provider to Microsoft's Bing Maps and installed the Enyo framework onto devices all the way back to the original Pre. There's just one problem - the update didn't hit all international devices, and those that couldn't download it were left with little help as the old Google Maps install ceased to function and they didn't get the Enyo-y goodness that the rest of us have been enjoying

Have no fear, for WebOS Internals is here to help! Rod Whitby and the crew have taken the newly open source Enyo 1.0 app framework and wrapped it up in a nice little 3.79MB package that installs Enyo onto any webOS device via Preware. With it you'll be able to run the, well, the handful of Enyo apps formatted for phones available in the App Catalog, but that's better than nothing, eh? Sorry, it won't give you Maps - it's up to HP to make that happen, nor will it neccesarily make the Enyo apps in the Catalog available. Our thanks to WebOS Internals for making it happen so quickly, and as always, if you appreciate their work, here's the donation link.
