About TrapWeaver
    TrapWeaver is a utility for the Palm OS which protects your device from crashing due to overlapping system patches. If you install HackMaster hacks or run 3rd-party apps that patch the OS, you need TrapWeaver! TrapWeaver stabilizes your device by transparently managing and protecting ALL system patches from writing over one another. This greatly reduces the amount of system resets caused by installing and uninstalling system enhancements.

System Requirements
    TrapWeaver requires Palm OS 2.0 or later and uses 25K of memory. (25K includes the TrapWeaver app itself as well as the memory it uses when it installs its system patches. Running TrapWeaver with less free memory may cause your Palm device to crash).
