Palm Releases webOS 1.4.5 for Sprint Palm Pre and Palm Pixi

Late yesterday, Palm released webOS 1.4.5 update for the Sprint Palm Pre and Palm Pixi. No word yet on the same update for Verizon and AT&T customers. If you are on Sprint and haven’t received webOS 1.4.5 yet, you should receive it shortly OTA. Let us know how it’s working for you.¬†Below is the full changelog.

webOS Update

New applications


Feature changes to existing applications


  • This release includes minor fixes and enhancements to support the public release of the webOS Plug-in Development Kit (PDK).
  • This release may require you to update certain apps to their latest version to properly support the launch of the webOS PDK. If you have a game that is not saving your game information correctly (high scores, stages, settings) check the App Catalog for updates. For more information on updating apps, see Using App Catalog.
  • Palm Pixi and Palm Pixi Plus phones can now run 3D games and other apps developed with the webOS PDK. Check App Catalog for titles that are compatible with your phone.


  • If a user enters text in a field on certain websites, the screen focus now remains on the text being entered.
  • This release fixes a rare problem so that podcasts now download correctly.


This release addresses several security issues with the Palm webOS software.


  1. Works great! Not too surprising considering how minor the changes were. That text input bug in the browser was pretty annoying, glad it’s solved.

    All I did to prepare for the update was uninstall UberKernel and reboot before proceeding with the update. Once the update was done, I popped open preware, reinstalled UberKernel, rebooted, and then had it install the updates for all of my patches (which were probably just version number bumps to declare compatibility with 1.4.5).

    I’ll hold my breath hoping for any sudden battery life improvements

  2. battery life still terrible, are we ever gonna get the flash update we were promised?

  3. Update broke the GSM6.10 codec so now I can’t listen to Voice Mails in my work or person emails.

    Not sure yet what else is broken but this is painful.

    When are Palm and Sprint going to wake up?!?
