With everything that gets old, there is a cult following which cherishes not only the old thing, but the memories associated during that period when that thing was at their disposal. Just ask a Palm fan and he will have at least 3 hours of non-stop commentary on PalmOS (with that obvious gleam in his eyes).
HP had decided to drop the files in the ROM necessary to run PalmOS on the WebOS 2.0. Reason simply being that Palm was old and outdated, it had to be disposed off. This didn’t go well with the “classic” fans, and homebrew gang felt it was time to do something about it. They couldn’t just let “it” go like this.
Precentral.net reports the following:
So has it been with Classic. Beginning in late November, forum member/webOS developer ArthurThornton began a discussion about getting Classic running on webOS 2, and then 2.1. Early this morning, he posted a detailed set of steps, including the files needed (and webOS Doctor versions from which they come), to get Classic working again; Arthur verified it on his newly-OTA-updated Pre 2, and other users are beginning to test as well (as will we).
This is the day of the classic palm lovers. Well since you know this now, you would like to know how to do it, so head over to Precentral.net and have a look for yourselves…!!
