Here is an short tutorial that can explain in upgrading WebOS 2.1.0 on Palm Pre and Palm Pre Plus. You can follow the steps if you own one of the smartphone and install the mobile operating system. There are number of ways you can install. It depends on your choice which type of process you can to carry out. The first you can try isby using cygwin & by modifying Doctor image file of WebOS. This is called as Meta Doctoring a process to re-modify the internal files of WebOS and packing them back again. While Cygwin already contains a number of common Unix programs such as a bash shell, the C + + compiler gcc, the X Window System XFree86, the TeX typesetting program or the SSH client and OpenSSH server. This are some uneasy process which I advice you to avoid.
You can go with an easier process where you have to bypass the rom of Palm Pre and Palm Pre + mobile hone. You can simply download WebOS 2.1.0 rom from internet. The update is fine and it works prpoerly without any much issue. Go MediaFire and search for this file - webos 2.1.0 bypass rom cooldude9848.jar. Download it. This file is an modified copy of Palm Pre rom which can work most probably without much error. You must also remember that such modifying the rom can cause permanent death of the phone, it is not performed properly. So better read and go through all details before going for the process. You have to stop the process of Backup in your Palm pre and remove all old files. To run the rom, this setup is somewhere important.
