HP TouchPad tablet. But that thought aside, it looks like we are still seeing ROMs being released. And just recently, it looks like an updated CM9 and an (unofficial) CM10 build have come available for use.
WebOS, thanks to designer Matias Duarte. Now Google is getting a fresh batch of concerts from the WebOS team. The Enyo developer team helped create the HTML5 framework for the HP TouchPad, and The Verge has announced that they're making their way to Google soon.
HP TouchPad down to $100, the one and only WebOS tablet has become something of a modder's dandy. While they're nearly impossible to find at retail these days, the cheeky salesmen at Woot.com have managed to snag an unknown quantity of the upgraded 32GB version, and they're selling them off for $194.99 each (plus $5 shipping). They're bound to go quickly, and Woot only sells an item for one day in any case, so hurry if your want one.
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.
download the ROM from here, make a nandroid backup and flash. Hop to it.
CyanogenMod team's Ice Cream Sandwich update for the HP TouchPad has unofficially graduated from major beta releases to nightly updates. Those with the inclination to try the latest and greatest in community-authored open source code can now flash updated ROMs every day, courtesy of the folks at TeamWin. They're syncing the latest Alpha build with nightly addition to CyanogenMod 9's code, added to the main branch daily, then posting them on their own. You check the download page here to see the latest files.
Chrome browser's Beta release! At this time it doesn't have Adobe Flash support, but it is blazing fast - and offers a great tabbed browsing experience. You can check out our hands-on with it here. We give it a try on both the Galaxy Nexus and ASUS Transformer Prime.
received TouchPads inexplicably running Android. Apparently the PC manufacturer had been testing Gingerbread builds on its tablet (which runs Palm's WebOS natively). As a show of solidarity to the development community, HP has now released the source code for its own internal version of the Android kernel to the CyanogenMod team. CyanogenMod maintains the most popular TouchPad Android port, CyanogenMod 7 Gingerbread, as well as the new CM9 Ice Cream Sandwich. You can read all the juicy details over at RootzWiki.
download the build from RootzWiki now, and install it normally through Clockwork Mod Recovery.
