A team of developers consisting mainly of caj2008 and unixpsycho from PreCentral-Forums managed to overclock the Pre, now running 800MHz stable.
Currently this requires a custom modified kernel. caj2008 and unixpsycho released a kernel for webOS 188.8.131.52, a kernel for webOS 1.4 is still under development. Anyway you may check this vid: webOS unbelievable fast.
On November 15th, 2009 it is rumored the new webOS 1.3.1 will be made available to worldwide Palm Pre users. On Monday a video on YouTube appeared that already shows a Palm Pixi running the new webOS 1.3.1.
Besides some boost in speed, the web browser in the 1.3.1 update obviously is able to recognize Adobe Flash already, though it does not run it (screenshot below captured at 0:24).
Running news clients with the built-in Windows Firewall, you will usually get fullspeed when accessing the usenet. Problems occur when you use All-in-One Internet-Firewall-and-Virus-Scan solutions. Since Virus-Scanners and Firewalls tend to scan all the network traffic with heuristic algorithms, scanning may slow down internet (and usenet) access. The following article demonstrates how to configure the widely spread Kaspersky Internet Security to allow fullspeed access to the usenet.
We assume you know how to setup your news client and you already installed Kaspersky Internet Security (KIS).
Setting up KIS
Open up your KIS and do the following:
click the Settings Button (see picture)
on the next window click the Threats and Exclusions Button (see picture)
on the next window click the Add Button (see picture)
on the next window click the Do not scan network traffic Checkbox (see picture) and then click the Browse Button to choose your News Client (see picture).
Then save your settings and restart your News Client application and you’re done.
