Well, I had installed the Cyanogenmod 7 Alpha 3.5 on my Touchpad. Worked pretty good, but, as expected, some irritating little problems. So, I installed the Cyanogenmod 9 Alpha 0.5 over top of it last night and it's been pretty good. The install imported and preserved all of the data and Apps from the Gingerbread install flawlessly too!

Aside from the camera not working I'm pretty happy with this early Alpha release. Movies in AVI, MP4, MP3, AVI play fine, I stream the video from my home computer and play the files using MX Video player too so I don't store much media on the TP. Overall, I highly recommend the changeover as the OS can only get better as the CM fellows fix bugs and improve performance.

THANKS CM!

I, too, have been on CM9 and loving it. I don't care about the camera, but have been missing the hardware acceleration. It looks like that is now out, in the form of CM9 alpha 1.0
Netflix is still not working, but hardware acceleration is...
I can live w/o netflix for awhile, Splashtop works great for that, but I'm hoping Plex will work now that video hardware acceleration is working.

Edit:
alpha 2 is now out with video hardware acceleration. Netflix and Plex now working great. still no camera or mic. No more booting into WebOS for me. It's an incredible job by the devs! Second Touchpad is in the mail!

Installed the alpha 2 update this weekend. It really makes the touchpad leaps and bound over when I first bought it. I love the ability to dual boot and though I currently have webos boot first, I too am thinking of just using ICS and putting webos to sleep for good.

I was about to order a new Chinese tablet (Teclast) but then I read about the Touchpad. Looking on Ebay it seems you can get one for similar money.

I like the sound of the build quality, dual core processor and that you can dual boot webos & ics (cm9).

I have read a couple of reviews which sound very positive.

Can anyone tell me whether you can plug in a usb stick presumably via an adapter cable?

Also is there any particular forum/Web page which is best for Touchpad?

Thanks
Jez

I love my touchpad but my problem is I can't access the internet with cm9 alpha 2. Webos works flawlessly. Any ideas on how to get internet working on cm9? I know there are apps like FXR but since the internet is not working I can't access it and don't exactly know how to sideload into android yet.

Hi, I don't even own a Touchpad yet (see previous post) but I found this which may be of use to you...

There's been some discussion on the Rootzwiki HP CM9 fourms with regards to issues about wifi - everything from ensuring your router uses Channels 1 to 6, ensuring you're using WPA encryption and if you have a dual-band router (2.4/5GHZ) to disable the 5GHz part. I downloaded Wifi Fixer from the Market and that worked for me as my TP with CM9 Alpha0.6 would disconnect after an hour (if your Wifi doesn't work in ICS try finding and downloading the .apk file using webOS). I am using Channel 1 and don't have 5Ghz and am using WPA2 but give Wifi Fixer a try. Currently Running CM9 Alpha2 and Netflix and YouTube work great.

YOu need an OTG cable and something to give the stick power. The touchpad can't do power over USB. Most people use a powered USB hub to make it work.

Rootzwiki is the best place to go for the touchpad

I am completely speechless....
well,ok... not really. :p

Here I am fighting in vain (so far anyway) to get something newer than Gingerbread on my 'chinese junks' and

you'all have ICS running on a tablet that isnt even MADE anymore!!!

I KNEW I shoulda gotten one when they sold for $99...
but I was asleep at the pad. :(

:D
