The Twelfth day of webOS-mas – Uberkernel.

On the twelfth day of webOS-mas,
My true love gave to me,
Uberkernel running,
Eleven Preware patches,
Ten Tweaks enabled,
Nine OS doctors,
Eight Macaws tweeting,
Seven Spiders Feeding,
Six T’s to reset,
Internalz Pro!
Four WiFi Shares,
Three Touchstone Chargers,
Two printing methods,
And webOS quick install.

Your webOS device runs on the GNU/Linux operating system. The heart of the system, it’s engine, is called the kernel. WebOS Internals offers you the Uberkernel. Unlike the stock kernel, it can sense the temperature of the computer chip running your device. The kernel has another feature: It can change the speed at which the chip is run. In practice, this delivers the following benefits: Better performance & better battery life. How can it do both these things? When you are busy using your phone, the kernel allows the chip to run faster than normal, slowing down only when the chip reaches a set temperature. When not in use or when the battery is low, the speed is slowed down to save power. To control and monitor these functions, you also need to install the Govnah app from Preware. Here are the instructions if you want to try UberKernel.

So, that’s 12 gifts from the webOS & it’s enthusiasts. What 12 things would be on your list? The comment box is below. Have a great 2014!
