Palm Pre Gets Firmware Upgrade to Version 1.0.4; No More Homebrews Installed Via Email
Palm has just released firmware version 1.0.4 for the Pre handset that’s been recently selling on Sprint. Engadget claims the firmware brings security vulnerabilities fixes, but there’s a downside to this: no more homebrew apps on the Pre without a jailbreak.
Till now, one could use a “hole” in the system, that allowed Palm Pre owners to install apps via a link in the email. The hole has been plugged, since Palm deemed it dangerous to be open, since it made the device unsafe.
