"Wow, what a big week for WebOS Internals! We can hardly take our eyes away from Twitter for fear that we will miss the next bit of news from Rod Whitby. So, let us try to break this whole thing down for you so you know what the guys at WebOS Internals have had their hands on this week.

"First up, we have the Franken-Pre 2 news which we reported on yesterday. In a nutshell, WebOS Internals took a Sprint Pre radio and successfully got it to make sweet love to a Pre 2. The big news here is that they finally solved the infamous 9.9.9 version error that would not allow version-specific apps to show as available or install properly. In the end, fooling the Pre 2 to think it's running 1.4.5 results in a fully functional Sprint Pre 2. The only snafus that are present now are that you can't buy apps that have a minimum version set to 2.0.0 and all updates from on this device will have to be doctored up since there will be no OTA updates. We should also give a special thanks to Chris Jowett (@cryptkcoding) for having to swap comms boards 12 times in 4 hours to work out the Sprint Pre 2 method. Now that is what we call serious work! Thanks buddy."
