Just when you thought that the HP TouchPad would be dead after it lost webOS support from HP, think again. Developers from the Android community have already taken the device for a full spin with reports showing signs of success running the CyanogenMod 7 ROM based on Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Now, as users already got a taste of how CM7 works wonders for their device, it’s time to bring out the bigger guns as the CyanogenMod Touchpad Team just recently released alpha 0 of CyanogenMod 9 (based on Ice Cream Sandwich) for the HP TouchPad. Right now, the CM9 Ice Cream Sandwich Rom is still in its alpha stage with no official CyanogenMod Team support yet.
Non-working features of CM9 Alpha 0 for the TouchPad include the following:
Congratulations! You have successfully installed CyanogenMod 9 Alpha 0 (based on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich) on your HP TouchPad.

There is now an Alpha 0.5.
Is there something missing before Step 7? Like maybe connecting the USB to the tablet?
2. Connect your tablet to your PC using a USB cable. Connect the device as “USB Drive”.
Nothing is dispaying except HP icon on my Touchpad after running command of Nivacom… I waited about 1 hour to see the progress ….. Followed all the steps…
I put all the files in the cminstall folder on the TouchPad, but when I went to do the flash in step 12, only the gapp zip showed as available in the listing under the cminstall folder. Did I miss something? ICS seems to be running fine on the TouchPad now without that step.
is step 9 and 10 the same thing? if not can someone please tell me how to do step 9 please,and now the device (hp touchpad 16g) is frozen with a big usb symbol on the screen.and on the command prompt do i enter spaces between ”exe boot mem” ? thank you
Command of “novacom.exe boot mem:// < ACMEInstaller2" – produced no results. Using $ "novacom boot mem:// < ACMEInstaller2 " worked.
Mine does nothing at the command prompt. Stays in USB Recovery mode
Universal Novacom Installer is stuck on Initalizing… on Installing Driver for some reason. I have tried turning off my firewall to see if it was blocking the connection, no luck
everything went fine and worked, then powered off touchpad, powered on now no wifi? can anyone help? Ideas? thanks
