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!

If you look in your Preware catalogue, you’ll see a section for patches – small pieces of software that modify parts of the webOS system and it’s stock apps. But what if you can’t find a patch that makes a particular change you’d like? What you need is a patch that is tweaks enabled. Now you can open your tweaks app and adjust settings for the patched behaviour that suit you, bringing greater flexibilty and customisation to the user experience.

OK, it depends how you count… There may not be exactly nine, but there are a number of webOS doctors available, depending on your device and carrier. What is a webOS doctor? When all seems lost and your device appears to have all the utility of a brick, you can plug it into a computer and run the webOS doctor to reinstall webOS. Here is the WebOS-Internals guide.
