Installing Android CyanogenMod 7 (Alpha 1) on HP TouchPad

Finally, we now can install Android on our HP TouchPad tablet. However, this CyanogenMod version is a testing version and not very stable. You may have some errors if you install this version on your tablet. Try it if you only want to test!

Important!

- Backup all you music, movies, and documents. After installing, all data except data of webOS will be gone.

- Read the instructions carefully.

- Copy files to TouchPad: boot via CM7 and copy. If you copy via webOS, all data will be lost after booting with CM7.

Preparing

- HP TouchPad with at least 2Gb free.

- Cable USB.

- PC/Mac or Linux computer.

- novocom (available in SDK):  linux, PC, Mac.

- ACME Installer: download at http://goo-inside.me/roms/cmtouchpad/alpha1/ACMEInstaller.zip

- In the first time of installing, you will need moboot (dualboot) and update-cm-7.1-tenderloin-a1-fullofbugs.zip (CM7 installer).

- Clockwork Recovery: Recovery mode, using when we have some problems with the booting process or perform updates later.

- Google Apps (optional): http://goo-inside.me/gapps/gapps-gb-20110828-signed.zip

Step by step

- Connect TouchPad with computer, choose USB Mode.

- Create a folder name “cminstall” in TouchPad and then copy 4 files *.zip: update-cm-7.1.0-tenderloin-a1-fullofbugs.zip, update-cwm_tenderloin-1012.zip, moboot_0.3.3.zip, gapps(-gb-20110828-signed.zip into this folder.

- After copying, choose Safe Remove > Eject TouchPad (do not unplug cable).

- Reboot TouchPad, press and hold Lock and Volume Up buttons until the screen displays as follow:

- On PC: Start > Run > cmd.

- Input cd C(the disk that you installed SDK):\Program Files\Palm\sdk\bin

- Copy file ACMEInstaller to above folder.

- Input: novacom boot mem:// <ACMEInstaller

- In Mac and Linux, go to Terminal and input: $ novacom boot mem:// < ACMEInstaller ($ is the name of the folder containing ACMEInstaller).

- Wait until the process is complete.

- After installing, choose boot CyanogenMod and enjoy Android on HP TouchPad !
