Does anyone know if this will ever happen?
Short answer. For a stock phone, no. No one really knows right now.

I think someone will port CM9 to it at least. It really sucks because I have CM9 on my HP Touchpad. Sad state of affairs when a "hacked" tablet gets it before a former "flagship" 4G phone.
How did you get this on your touchpad? I have one & have been tempted to do it. Thanks

it's pretty bulletproof, but you'll want to read up on all the software. You can turn your TP into dual boot, but i'll bet once you get Android loaded, you'll never go back to WebOS. You'll need MOBOOT (basically a new bootloader), ACMEInstaller2, CWM (for flashing things) and CM9. Check out the rootzwiki and it will get you on the right track. Be warned: CM9 is very alpha - netflix, video and camera do not work yet.

The second link is a post to installing CM7.
It looks like there are some ICS ROMs for our Thunderbolt, but looks like having trouble with the radio. Exciting, as ICS is awesome on the tablet.
Now that I've done a root with my old OG Droid I'm feeling more brave to try some more things...I'd like to root my Bolt so I can use the free wifi hotspot...and now I think I'll try to put CM7 on my touchpad...maybe lol
I rooted my Bolt 2 days ago. It was super easy and Open Garden tether app works fantastic. I still can't figure out how to root my OG Droid though lol
I've seen a couple YouTube videos of the Bolt root using revolutionary, is that what you used to root?? Is your root easy to unroot just in case?
I saw the open garden app, here's another queation: is that app usb or wireless? Can't tell from the description... Sorry for all the questions lol

I used the Revolution method yes. Also, don't know about uprooting as I'm not planning on doing that lol. Open Garden is wireless, so I use it for my iPad. Do you have a link for rooting the Droid! Lol
I used this a LONG LONG time ago..
