Verizon Pushing webOS 1.4.5 Upgrade to Palm Pixi Plus Owners
Three weeks after its counterparts on the Sprint network got the same treatment, Verizon’s Palm Pixi Plus owners are starting to see the highly-anticipated webOS 1.4.5 update being offered for download. What makes this latest version of Palm’s proprietary operating system so important is that it allows users to run 3D games and apps developed with the company’s PDK software development kit.
Interestingly enough, while Sprint’s 1.4.5 rollout hit both the Pre and Pixi simultaneously, it is reportedly only Pixi (Plus) users who are seeing the upgrade right away this time around — Verizon Pre Plus and AT&T Pre Plus and Pixi Plus owners are still in the dark about the timing of their updates. According to Pre Central, homebrewers need to uninstall all themes as well as certain unsafe patches, and uninstalling non-native kernels is also advised.
