To homebrew or not to homebrew

Wed Sep 29, 2010 5:39 pm

Hey TR,

So, after I deciding on the Palm Pre a few months back, I am most impressed with the device overall.

The form factor's decent, interface snappy, and apps place has a solid assortment of useful apps.

As an enthusiast though, stock is never good enough, which brings me to the question: To homebrew, or not to homebrew?

As I understand it, homebrew opens up to a world of better apps, and device mods (I.e. overclocking :lol: ) and looks straight forward enough. My question to you is: Is it worth the hassle/ risk? Not sure if Cyril has dabbled in it too much, but what about other Pre owners? Is that extra 300MHz really worth it? Are the apps THAT much better?
If common sense is so common, why don't more people have it?
