Use the newest CM9 nightly for now. Great news is that Dalingrin is done with finals and working on the touchpad again, this is a huge deal that might get the 3.0 kernel finished, making the touchpad a lot more stable (less kernel panics).

Any good walk though you recommend?

Its pretty stable I just installed it a few days ago and it runs fast than before when i was using WebOS plus way more responsive. On Chrome I can't comment cause I don't use it.


Ok thanks, I'm thinking about switching to ICS if I can get a more reliable web browser and if the TP is more responsive that's even better.

There are literally 1000's of walkthroughs. You can also install Goo Manager from the market and it will download the newest nightly + gapps for you. And from within the app, you can upgrade your recovery to the full touch recovery and auto-install style.

I installed a nightly android build 4-30-12 about 2 weeks ago now and I'm loving my touchpad so much more now. Not sure I even need to go back into WebOS even though it's still there. Great stuff.

I just upgraded to CM9 last night and it is so much nicer than CM7. Still no Hulu via app, but can't have everything.

The devs have started porting the camera source HP gave up via lawsuit to CM9, not much progress yet but the app opens and crashes instead of nothing happening.

Installed cm9 on my previously webOS only TP and love ICS on it. However, as far as the version goes I had to go with the Alpha 2 from Rootzwiki because on the cyanogenmod download page, the 0327 Nightly (last Official build) link is bad and as far as nightlies go the last stable one I've heard much about is 0522 or 0527, but those are no longer downloadable from that page. I've unsuccessfully searched for alternative places to download these file and struck out since everyone link's to cmod's download page.

Anyone know of somewhere else I can find these files?

I think I am at the point where I am ready to dual boot my touchpad. Does anyone know of a good resource (easy to follow) that walks you through the installation process? It seems most of the sites that get updated these days assume you're updating your cm9 installation not starting from scratch like me. Your help is much appreciated.

I used this article from WebOS Nation:

I had no problems installing, but I read the comment thread at the bottom of the article which helped me avoid some common mistakes.

RevTV is the best.



He makes it very simple and explains everything very well. Much easier than some of the other walkthrus out there. Plus he has walkthrus on upgrading nightlies, a hulu fix and other important stuff.
