I just got a 32 GB hp touch pad in like new condition for just under 200 and am happy to have a nice tablet in my life now. I am getting ready to put the latest CM9 official nightly on and have a couple questions
1) I have heard it is smart to "backup" your touchpad before rooting or flashing or whatever its called. Why do I need to backup if I don't have any files I want to save, and how do I go about doing this?
2) Is there any use for this supposed SD card slot? I have heard that you can do some sort of backup or flashing with an SD card to be safe but from what I can tell my device doesnt really have an SD card slot. There is this little thing that pops out but I dont think I can fit an sd card in there.
Any help much appreciated as I am about to get started and am pretty pumped, was going to use these 2 threads for instructions
