Nope. But you can Google and read about them yourself.

Unless you need the camera, I can recommend just getting the latest CM9 installed.

We've had alpha 2 on our TP since it came out and it is pretty much perfect other than the camera is not working.

Hi guys thanks for responding. What about the audio, netflix, and wifi? For example I see some threads where it seems that wifi is unfixable. But from what's being posted it that seems to not be the case. Can someone clarify?

Audio and wifi works fine for me in CM9. Can't comment on Netflix since I don't use it.

Anyway, just go ahead and take the plunge. Every TouchPad owner should just install CM9. You have absolutely nothing to lose (except perhaps your warranty, but who cares about that?) and everything to gain.

Okay I think I'll take a look. Any idea when the next major release or milestone is? I'm going on vacation in a few so would be nice to have a nice newer version waiting for me...

And can anyone recommend a guide? I know there are some on sites like prenation but can someone recommend one that is actually updated and that they have personal experience with?

I do believe it's taboo to ask for release ETAs when it comes to CM...

Re: Guide
Just follow the steps here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1305891
Then flash CM9 and Gapps via CWM recovery. Wipe data, cache, and dalvik. Reboot. Enjoy.
