If you were one of the lucky few to get your hands on the HP Touchpad back in the fall of 2011 when they were selling out faster than Ipads I envy you. The tablet obviously flopped at release mainly because it was running a dead OS. The tablet was solidly built and was a steal at the $99 price point which is where it ended up. It was in such high demand there at the end that one student's hand drawing of the HP touchpad ended up attracting $1million + bids on ebay! As soon as the tablets hit the shelves they left the shelves and then ended up on ebay for $200 dollars. At the time there were no good affordable options like there are now with the Kindle Fire and Nexus 7. One reason I believe that the tablet was such a hit is because the mod community knew that eventually Android would be ported over to the tablet by way of Cyanogen Mod. Just a few short months after the HP Touchpad sold out everywhere a developer did manage to get CM7 fully ported over to the tablet.
Recently developer "Jcsullins" has released an unofficial preview build of CM10 for the Touchpad! This version has fully working sound, fully working camera, and fully working microphone! Above you will find a video showing you how to install this experimental build. You will want to make sure that you have made a proper nandroid backup before proceeding. I wish i had been able to snag one of these.
