HP TouchPad

Kids on Computers received a generous donation of 100 touchpads from HP. These touchpads are pre-loaded with WebOS, but we may wish to install Android to provide more apps.


Initial TouchPad Activation

CyanogenMod Installation

These documents describe a set of procedures that has been used to produce a standard CyanogenMod 9 environment on an HP TouchPad. Neither the standard nor the process is fixed; they are subject to refinement.

A host system is necessary to store the files that will be downloaded to the HP TouchPad. The target HP TouchPad tablet will be physically connected by USB cable to the host system at several times during the installation and configuration. The first set of installation and configuration steps below use a PC running Windows 7 as the host system. Other host system options follow and will be described as they are developed.
