Android install directions can be found here! This Tablet really needs Android. Give it what it needs, go on. Android turned this defuncted fire sale tablet into a hot little Touchpad.

Once you install Android Cyanogen Mod, It runs great! Web OS is junk and really devalues the tablet. The hardware is good most notably the speakers which rival the levels my laptop puts out. The processor and GPU easily handle Apps and games, GTA 3 and Shadowgun run great.

There are of course some glitches. Like music playback being muffled when the screen turns off but all in all nothing too major. Most errors can be solved with a simple reboot.

Absolutely fantastic work done be the Cyanogen Mod Team. I just wanted to thank you guys for your hard work and dedication. Please donate to help keeps the support and updates coming.

Tweaks--> use juice defender to disable Wifi when the Pad is locked. Also use CPU master to dynamically alter the clock speed based on demand. Add AnTutu Battery saver to limit the max speed of the processor in power saver modes. This will help to ensure great battery life.

> In reply to Sayeed @ 2011-11-19 11:52 from K6mw - click to readhi mate, to reset your HP touchpad when it locks up all you have to do is hold down the power button and the button on the screen and the same time for around 15 seconds and it will restart then remove the problem program, once the problem program has been updated buy the developer then reinstall it.
I hope this helps all the best jai....

Got one last week for £169.99 new, I think for the price they are unbeatable the webOS is usable but a little lacking, after 24 hours of use I had rooted it and installed android so now it dual boots android 2.3 and webOS good times.
If you can got one do so you will not regret it......
