1) After the reboot i used

adb shell
# tar xvzf /sdcard/GenTop2-portage-20120424.tar.bz2

but it gave me an error, am i using the correct command or i should use something else?

Yes. The touchpad thingy is also an open end. I have no idea why it doesnt come up. The GenTop2 tries to do everything in the same way as the original one, but for some reason that doesnt appear.

I guess the touchpad is some Android program part of DockService or PortalApp, which drive the Webtop switch. But I havent debugged how to activate it.

@snik38
To extract a .tar.bz2 you use tar xvjf ...

three items one that caused some grief, but other than that this has lots of cool potential!

I have a stock rom with root.

1. resolution was pretty screwed up. I did try to adjust the resolution, but it was locked into one setting.
2. flash isnt installed on the browser so many websites where disabled.
3. I could not get AIW to start.

I see you answered #1 in a previous post. But I think all three of those items are minimum requirements to replace webtop. BTW great job again! Its seemed much faster than the webtop app.

Took me a while to get this all running, but it's great now it is. Have this over Nottachtrix 1.3.1. Everything installed and works fine!

Cheers!

When my phone turns on and gets to the preparing sd, it takes forever. Does this happen to anyone else?
