If you have Forums and/or Communities (ipk download) for the TouchPad, you’ll notice webOS Nation forums aren’t working. The good news is, there’s a fix for it for Forums AND Communities (now). The bad news is there’s no fix for it in Communities…yet.
Sadly Forums is dead for webOS 1.x with the change to https. No amount of backup from a working 2.x device and restoration to a 1.x device will help. It was already pretty crippled anyway but this is the nail in the coffin. 🙁
If you’re an active member of the webOS community these days, you’ll know we’re a small, tight-knit group of friendly folks. Our three subgroups tend to be mostly free-time developers, advanced users, and those that are hanging on to the form factor/mobile OS despite its limited services and with little regard for the do-it-all-for-you modern devices.
Tech-tuber, Tim Schofield, dug out a Palm Pre today to do a comparison video of the iPhone X and the original Palm Pre with equal parts “Apple finally copied webOS” and “this weird device is old, lolz” sprinkled in.
