many a moon since I dusted off the old firesale HP TouchPad, but now that the CyanogenMod team has advanced its Ice Cream Sandwich ROM for the tablet to Alpha 2, I figured it was time to give the mod-friendly slate another go. TouchPad owners can download the latest ROM from RootzWiki, and after you see my experiences here, you'll want to. The TouchPad has become a surprisingly stable and speedy platform for Android, due in no small part to the efforts of the CyanogenMod developers.

CyangoenMod 9, the Ice Cream Sandwich version of the popular family of custom ROMs, is still in heavy development.

may make use of Onskreen's Cornerstone multitasking engine. It was just recently announced, and proved to be quite an amazing concept.
