    HP touchpad

    Hi, have the discontinued HP touchpad ( that I'm using right now). It's a great piece of hardware, however, the apps lack greatly, there are some Apple/HP only apps like Zite (wonderful program). But Android dominates in apps.


    I hear you can jailbreak/hack/do something/improve the touchpad to cupcake or ice cream sandwich, lol, I don't know much about it. And you can switch from HP to Android whenever, 2 tablets in one. But they say there's lots of glitches.


    I've also heard Google/android bought the HP touchpad. If so, PLEASE make newer versions! The idea that I can use either HP or Android whenever I want on 2 tablets sounds wonderful.

    However, It doesn't sound 95-100% safe yet. So I will wait but I found this forum today and thought I'd ask.

    I did this to my uncle's HP Touchpad, I followed something similar to this (newer version of Android): How to install Android 4.0 on the HP TouchPad (CyanogenMod 9 Alpha) - Liliputing

    It's definitely safe and you don't delete webOS, you simply just boot into Android. I thought I messed up a couple times, but it really is pretty simple, and as long as you read directions before you begin you'll be fine. If Android fails for some reason you'll still have webOS to turn back to.

    glad to hear it! To bad you can't remote control my touchpad and do it for me! I'm still nervous, but what you have said (and a trustworthy link) I think I will try.

    Just keep reading and reading. If you can find a youtube video on it that may help you as well (easier to follow along maybe). I've since put it back to webOS and it runs fine.

    you didn't like it as android? Wikipedia says that in 2013 HP might start making them again, but better, they also said the newest update was February 22, so it may be better since you last had it.

    ok, makes sense

    chizzle , I'll look into that.

    I watched that video Dizymond, I don't think I'm up to it, it is simple.... But sounds risky, I might wait, unroll it's easyer /safer. I'm only [information unavailable]-teen years old. And still need to learn a lot. But sounds fun!

    Question: I know all I need to do is do what he says, but could you upload the files (please re-watch the videos, he made a new one) to google docs, and I just download them from there?
