UPDATE: Well, it turns out I didn’t do my research properly. The P100UNA was the Telcel Palm Pre. I got pretty excited there for a minute, didn’t I? It’s still unique in that this is a marked pre-production unit with no back-mirror branding and has an AT&T configuration.

hey just want to let you know… P100UNA is not an AT&T Pre. It's a production device, the Telcel Pre.

— Calvin C (@ToniCipriani5)

In this the third episode of rare webOS devices, I take a look at a protoype Pre 3 and the never-before-seen P100UNA also known as the AT&T Telcel Palm Pre.

For those owners of an AT&T branded Palm Pre Plus, don’t get upset. Yes, you have an AT&T Pre but it’s a ‘Plus’. What I have in my possession as an original (orange keyboard and gesture area button) AT&T Telcel Palm Pre with an ATT configuration which predates the AT&T Palm Pre Plus.

We first heard about the device on webOS Nation forums when it . Clearly that was before the Sprint exclusive deal.

The other device to show, while cool, is a bit more run-of-the-mill. A prototype Pre3 with a glorious HP Palm back. I do love the back.

Check the video!

      Hi
      I currently have CA DacMagic 100 connected via optical + CA A1 AMP, this is quite cumbersome and doesn't work with universal control.
      I know that i will have to buy some hardware to have proper universal control, however i can't find any reliable information on which amp does support it and which doesn't. 
       
      It would be great if list of supported devices would be available.
      If not then recomendation for AMPs that works well with optical + simple DALI oberon stereo satellite setup is also solution.
       
      PS1. Sorry if this duplicate but i couldn't find anything meaningful after few days of googling.
      PS2. I've heard that Denon AVR-X3600H works but this is massive overkill for what i need (i don't indend to go beyond stereo, not even 2+1).

      Hey, 
      My question is, can I install webos4.0 or higher on my lg 49uj701v, for example via a USB stick with an .apk ? I would like to download Paramount+.
      Thanks a lot

      On LG OLEDs. You go on and disable SIMPLINK. Fine. But everytime you turn on your HDMI device it enables itself back again. This happens because they have disables two key features that were present in previous OSs, as you can see clearly here
      link hidden, please login to view (they even put screencaps of the menus where you see the missing options in the 23) These functions are Auto Power Sync and Auto Device Detection.
      Man updates are supposed to add functionalities not the other way around. It's very annoying to turn on your TV and have your AVR turn on without you wanting to.

      Anyone found a solution for this problem?

      Hi all,
      I'm wondering how you can get into the service menu (In Start) on an old LG Smart TV (42LB630V) running WebOS 1.4.  I have a Samsung Galaxy S6 (SM-G920F) with a IR blaster, I have tried sending '0x04FB 0xFB04' to I which should be IR code to enter the menu, but that doesn't work.
      I have also tried entering it with the SSAP-Web, but I get:
      error: 500 Application error {"errorCode":-101,"returnValue":false,"errorText":"\"com.webos.app.factorywin\" was not found OR Unsupported Application Type" The SAPP-Web app does works though, because the TV does respond to Get info
      { "returnValue": true, "product_name": "webOS", "model_name": "HE_DTV_WT1M_AFAAABAA", "sw_type": "FIRMWARE", "major_ver": "05", "minor_ver": "05.90", "country": "omitted", "device_id": "omitted", "auth_flag": "N", "ignore_disable": "N", "eco_info": "01", "config_key": "00", "language_code": "en-GB" } The reason I want to access the menu is because I've enabled DEBUG mode on my TV through the NVM method and I want to enter a root shell trough UART to enable SSH and root access.
      Gaining root access through NVM:
