Open webOS Community Edition released

For those of you who have a HP Touchpad, the Open webOS project came one step closer to fruition this week. The Open webOS team have released a package for the Touchpad that allows users to “learn how the TouchPad works, modify your TouchPad experience and then apply that learning to Open webOS 1.0 in the future”.

Although Open webOS Community Edition (WOCE for short) doesn’t work on non-HP/Palm devices at present, the team has said that Open webOS 1.0 (due for release in September) will hopefully “enable the community to develop ports for the hardware of their choice”.

The official release blog post can be found here, with instructions for building and flashing on As always, neither myself or CoolSmartPhone accepts any responsibility for what you do with your device.
