Geeking out here!
I received a HP touchpad for Christmas from a friend. I never use it much, because there are really very few apps for it.
Last night I decided to bite the bullet and install CM9. This is a program that is currently in development but still free and available to the public. All you have to do is figure out how to install it.
Well, you have to be able to use the command mode on a computer and punt when the directions lead you astray! You also have to be able to find the right files to download, which is harder than it sounds.
All said and done, I did it, and boy am I glad. Now i have the entire android app store at my fingertips. Of course, I’m still in money saving mode, so only free apps!
I used these directions if you are interested. Two things. Get the latest files. You will have to dig around. The Clockwork file was not the latest. If i post the latest here, they will probably change before i can save this post! LOL
Also, go ahead and find/download the google apps zip file. It will save a little headache.
