HP TouchPad Gets CyanogenMod 9 Alpha 0 Release

Advertisement

If you’re among those who managed to grab an HP TouchPad in the very last moments of its existence shouldn’t worry about software, especially if you turned Android. There’s a new CyanogenMod 9 build for the tablet, even if it’s still in Alpha 0 stage.

Aside from showing a very early release, the 0 after the Alpha describes the lack of hardware-accelerated video and a non-functional camera. Those aside, if you choose to update, you should also know about the current glitches: audio (the microphone does not work), market filters prevent some apps from being installed, Titanium Backup crashes the kernel, most of the hardware problems from CM7 still exist, Gapps intended for CM7/Gingerbread will not work in CM9/ICS, USB file transfers use MTP or PTP in Ice Cream Sandwich and Honeycomb, and traditional storage mounting is not supported in the Touchpad build.

If you have to have the latest software then this Alpha 0 is for you; head over to the source link to find more details. If, however, you like keeping it stable and bug-free, sit back and let the community apply some more polish. A better version should be out in the future.
