HP TouchPad gets Android Jelly Bean via CM10 Preview Release

by: Derek RossAugust 13, 2012
If you were lucky enough to get an HP TouchPad this time last year during their "fire sale" for $99 (16GB) or the $149 (32GB) your Android luck hasn't run out yet. Remember, Android first came to the HP TouchPad via CM7, Gingerbread. A few months later, Android 4.0 came to the HP TouchPad, bringing a true tablet UI to the 10" popular slate. The CyanogenMod development community continues to grace the HP TouchPad, this time with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean showing up via an unofficial CM10 preview release.

HP TouchPad Jelly Bean update available via CyanogenMod 10

by: Chris SmithAugust 3, 2012

Remember the HP TouchPad tablet? Sure you do, it was HP’s poorly marketed webOS-running iPad-killer wannabe that the company decided to discard soon after launching it. HP sold the device for very low prices once it decided it has no future with the company – as low as $99 – which made it very appealing to the crowds that wouldn’t have otherwise picked one up.

Naturally, one of the things developers did with the device was to port Android to it, and the device was soon running Android, even if unofficially, alongside webOS.

Now we hear that a Jelly Bean port is available for the 2011 tablet that’s now dead considering that HP’s webOS [...]

Install CyanogenMod 9 Alpha 0.6 ICS on HP TouchPad

by: Carl ParkerFebruary 15, 2012

Even the HP Touchpad gets a dose of Ice Cream Sandwich, thanks to CyanogenMod 9. Though still in the Alpha stage, an updated release, Alpha 0.6, includes a number of stability and user interface additions, such as:

Touchscreen fixes. Ability to hide the combined bar (navigation buttons and clock) for full screen. This uses ICS api so it will require api support but not all apps have been updated. This is an option under Settings > Interface > System > Combined Bar. Scrollable quick settings. Reboot to recovery works via the power menu but sometimes the tablet will shut down rather than reboot. Preliminary support for ROM Manager.  (You’ll need ROM Manager [...]

Update Your HP TouchPad to ICS CyanogenMod 9 Alpha 0.5

by: Paul NuñalFebruary 6, 2012

The Ice Cream Sandwich fever has not subsided yet.  In fact, it is still getting hotter and hotter, with no sign of breaking at all.  So many Android devices are getting their share of the delicious treat, especially with custom ROMs such as CyanogenMod 9.  One of the latest beneficiaries of the CyanogenMod 9 custom ROM is the HP TouchPad.

Previously, developers were able to produce an Alpha 0 version of CyanogenMod 9 for the HP TouchPad.  Not long thereafter, an updated version, Alpha 0.5, was unleashed, promising to fix some of the most annoying issues in the earlier release.

The CyanogenMod Touchpad Team, which is responsible for cooking up CyanogenMod 9 for [...]

How to Upgrade the HP TouchPad from CyanogenMod 7 to Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich

by: Alvin YbañezJanuary 30, 2012

The HP TouchPad has traveled around the wheel of fate. It was an infamous webOS tablet that turned into one of the most sought-after tablets after Android developers were able to tear it apart and installed Android in its system. With an Ice Cream Sandwich ROM already available for this device, it will surely make consumers regret not having bought such a splendid tablet.

For some time, only Android 2.3 Gingerbread (via CyanogenMod 7) was available for the TouchPad, and now the CyanogenMod team has developed CyanogenMod 9 Alpha 0.5, bringing Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich to your HP TouchPad. With ICS’ virtual buttons, the ROM perfectly fits the tablet because it [...]

How to Install Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich on the HP TouchPad

by: Paul NuñalJanuary 28, 2012

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.

HP TouchPad Breathes Honeycomb Air with Team Xron ROM

by: Conan HughesNovember 11, 2011

Owners of the discontinued HP TouchPad are probably scratching their heads for buying a tablet already dead in the water. Fortunately, mod teams are busy building Android ports to several devices including the HP TouchPad, for which a pure Android Honeycomb version has been developed by a group called Team Xron.

The team’s port itself is a fork of another port made by another group known as CyanogenMod. Whereas the latter placed some signatures around its ports–such as its own boot animation–Team Xron offers a purer experience with Honeycomb themes, icons, and widgets based on the Google Nexus One. Apps that come bundled with the installation include Google [...]
