Palm OS Guide/Hacks
Hacks are programs that extend the function of your palm. Sometimes called "Extensions," hacks enable your Palm handheld to do more than its original OS is capable of. Hacks such as inverting backlight foreground/background and changing system fonts are available for download. You need to install a hack management program before using hacks. There are three hack management programs.
- Hackmaster (Shareware)
- X-Master (Freeware)
- TealMaster ($9.95)
- YAHM (Yet Another Hack Manager) for Palm OS 5 and above and can be used on older palms such as the Palm IIIx (Freeware)
TealMaster and X-Master claim to be 100% compatable with Hackmaster.
Note: Hacks are generally incompatible with PalmOS 5.x and 6.x as they are based on a different processor.
WARNING: As of above, be extra careful using applications that speed up processing power, (CLOCK APPS), most of them are designed to work on EZ Motorola Processors.
