    Just search on 'webos20090606', start the dev mode app and turn it off.

    Thanks for the reply...but would there be any performance degrade or is it prone to any viral attacks if i have this developer mode enabled?

    there will be no performance degrades, you could also install patches or overclock your touchpad when developer mode is enabled. Instructions at http://opinionativereviewer.com/archives/2845.By the way, webOS is a dead OS anyway so nobody would bother making viruses for the touchpad.

    HP did NOT discontinue the WebOS operating system SOFTWARE. HP only officially discontinued their WebOS HARDWARE division.

    HP is trying to "pull a Sega" & go software & licensing only for their WebOS software, then is going the same route that IBM did in 2005 to sell off their PC hardware division.



    The official HP Palm blog about it.

    HP webOS: The next generation

    "The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated." -- Mark Twain
    Yesterday, HP announced several significant shifts in the company's operational strategy. Among them was the announcement that we would suspend development of devices running HP webOS, including the TouchPad and webOS phones. It's always a challenge to forge new directions, and it can be even more challenging to make the tough decisions to end efforts in other directions. But to paraphrase Mark Twain, reports about the demise of webOS have been off the mark.
    HP has made these tough decisions to ensure that our efforts with webOS remain tightly focused. Far from burying webOS, our goal is to ensure the platform's evolution as a robust operating system for an increasingly mobile and connected world. We have received positive feedback from our customers and our developers about their enthusiasm for webOS -- powerful, elegant, and like no other -- and we intend to enhance the platform as we explore the options for webOS in today's marketplace. We'll take care of our existing customers and, as always, we appreciate your support for our platform. We encourage you to stay tuned as we write the next chapter in front of us.

    Well the dev mode just makes it possible to connect to WebOS, instead of just the storage (through the hard drive mode).
    In theory, one could abuse that connection. Though not very likely it would ever happen. It shouldn't effect performance either way.

    Still, after installing preware on your device you don't really need the dev mode (afaik). You could just turn it of and just the files on your device and use Preware to install.

    If it makes you feel a bit better turning dev mode off, you should .

    In preware there is a utility called "enable developer mode icon" which does just what it says so you just click on icon and flick "on" switch to turn it on and off without having to type in that code, just remember to not set a password
