One of the biggest gripes people have with Palm's Mojo SDK is that it won't give developers full access to the OS, potentially curtailing 3D gaming. Now, with WebOS leaked and dissected, homebrewers are picking up the slack.


This guy has managed to get an open source, hardware-accelerated version of Doom running on his Pre, leveraging yesterday's full leak of a WebOS root image, which gave hackers and developers access to core elements of OS that won't be accessible with their MojoSDK. Granted, you'd expect Doom to run on the Pre accelerated or not, but at the very least it's a hopeful sign of things to come. [Sargund]
