Two years later, webOS 1.4.5 update finally comes to the Telcel Palm Pre

There are some things that we never expect to see happen. We're talking tortoise riding a unicorn type stuff here. That's the level of make-believe upon which we had stashed the thought of webOS 1.4.5 ever getting released for the . Like the Sprint Pre, the Telcel webOS phone was all but abandoned as far as updates were concerned, but it was abandoned at webOS 1.4.1.

Unlike Apple, which has managed to somehow wrest control of updates away from the carriers, Palm still had to depend on carrier testing before their updates could get released. the ball was dropped when it came to the version of webOS 1.4.5 intended to be released onto Telcel's Pre. We had written if off long before .

And this week, that's changed. webOS Nation reader Alberto wrote to let us know that his Palm Pre on Telcel had received and successfully installed an update to webOS 1.4.5. So, what do the remaining Telcel Pre users get for their nearly two-year wait for the 1.4.5 update? We're assuming it's the same set of changes as were from 1.4.1 back in June 2010, so we're talking about improved PDK support, browser text field focusing, fixed podcast downloads, and some security patches. Hope it was worth the wait.

All things considered, that the Telcel Pre got the update at all is a miracle, though we're throughly perplexed as to why it took so long. We contacted HP for more info about the update - mostly to confirm it and make sure we weren't dealing with a randomly distributed test update or something of the like - and they were just as confused as we were. So we'll just enjoy the hilarity of it all - at least webOS phones aren't still being sold with outdated software like our Android compatriots have to deal with. Granted, they still have phones being sold at all, so .

      Hi, since I think yesterday I have an issue with HBO GO - it just shows unsupported device and that is it. According to their website, WebOS 3.5+ should be supported, I have LG uh6107 and in menu it shows SW version  5.60.15, so I think it should be ok.. does anybody have the same issue?

      Found multiplex application that use letsencrypt stop working in 30 September 2021 on LG WebOS 3.5. This appear to be wide spread multiplex version of WEBOS.

      Our current app is available on 4K/UHD LG television models running the following system software:
      webOS 3.0 webOS 3.5 webOS 4.0 webOS 5.0 No 720p or 1080p (“full HD”) sets are supported for our current app at this time.
      Note: Due to root certificate limitations with the device OS itself, only webOS 5.0+ devices support secure connections with a personal Plex Media Server. To allow connections to a personal server, devices running earlier webOS versions must be set to Allow Insecure Connections in the TV app settings and the Plex Media Server must be set to Preferred for the Secure Connections preference.

      After I complete developing lg tv app,  how other man  test  app?

      We just purchased a new LG WebOS TV OLED 65" and running the setup through the app or the TV remote says it can't load the user agreement. This is blocking us from getting to streaming apps like Nexflix or any smart functions like Voice assistant.
      TV worked fine for a few days but voice assistant stopped working and after much effort LG tech said to  Reset to Initial Settings. Now we have mentioned no smart functions. TV is on ethernet and its browser functions on web fine. Tried running off neighbor's wifi with same results.
      Tried switching to different country, unplugging/hold power button for 20 seconds/wait one minute,  resetting TV multiple times, setting up remote again, ...
      Error message: Unable to Load User Agreements  A server error has occurred while downloading  the User Agreements. You must download and agree to the terms of the User Agreements to use this feature or application. Do you want to try to download them again… Unable to Load User Agreements  Sorry, but the User Agreements  can't be downloaded at this time…Please check your internet connection and try again later.    No change when trying over five days.
      Now there is no local company available to service TV. Maybe it's time to send it back and give LG TV a one star rating. I am willing to change motherboards but doubt if LG would go along with that.
      Anyone have any ideas.

      Hello,
      I have a 2 year old OLED55C9PTA. The current WebOS is at 6.0 while mine is still at 4.9.5-7. 

      Are we getting the WebOS updates? Is there anyway that I can manually update it to the latest WebOS?
      Thanks!
