    CyanogenMod Gets CM7 Working on HPTouchPad!

    This is certainly some exciting news on our quest to port Android to the HPTouchPad: Apparently, the CyanogenMod Team have successfully ported CM7 in a partial state on the device! The team is working on creating a multi-boot scenario so you can potentially boot from WebOS, Android or whatever strikes your fancy. Above is a video showing the progress.

    Although the project has obviously made a great breakthrough, unfortunately it's not quite functional just yet. There is still some issues with the colors being off, and more importantly, the touchscreen still doesn't work. However, the team is working hard to "make it happen." Also, they have a need for more TouchPads to develop on and are requesting assistance from members of the community willing to lend their "excess" devices for the project. Below is a quote that came along with the video,
    Hey Internet–

    Here is some (older) touchpad progress from Friday. The Cyanogenmod team wanted to share it with the public to bring attention to our need for a few more touchpads (for developers currently working without them).

    As you can see from this quick demo, we’ve been working hard and have made progress. Since this video was created last week, the build has been more “tabletized” (tablet tweaks added, etc.), lvm support has been added.

    The touchscreen driver issue is now the focus of our attention.

    Our ultimate vision is to create a *multiboot* solution where the end user will be able to boot into WebOS, Cyanogenmod, and/or other OSes. This appears to be very possible, and we have discussed several potential implementations with our new friends in the WebOS development community to make it easy for an end-user to set up.

    For the moment though, we need about 4 tablets, as we have talented and experienced developers who cannot contribute effectively due to a lack of hardware. If you have an extra touchpad and are willing to help the cause, please let us know in the comments below.

    A BIG CAVEAT– PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR ETAS. For the uninitiated, this is the #1 rule for Cyanogenmod. It will certainly be a long while before our goals become reality. Our goals incidentally are not connected with any bounty– we are motivated to do it right, not do it fast.

    And now the obligatory shout outs– Thanks to rootzwiki and all the devs and everyone else who are collaborating and contributing to this project. You know who you are, you.

    The CM team
