As you may be aware there are hacked Pre firmware releases that have come out recently for the 18.104.22.168 and 1.4 versions. While these hacked versions have been tested and the results have been relatively good Palm isn’t exactly excited that users have been releasing these hacked firmware releases. Even with users having documented minimal heat gains and battery losses Palm has been issuing warnings that running these hacked versions may affect your current warranty.
While we appreciate the effort the webOS community has put forth to try and help us along that path, the use of this application is neither endorsed nor recommended by Palm Unlocked Phone and will likely result in a voided warranty.
It is obvious to see why Palm would not be thrilled about users enhancing the clock multiplier on their phones and why you can not fault them for voiding warranties of the users who do decide to beef up their phones. While the users who do perform these hacks and issue the firmware releases are safe users who are not releasing these updates with malicious intent I am sure that Unlocked Palm Phones would much rather prefer they did not do so.
