Default New to this, need a stable version for touchpad..

Hey guys, I just bought a HP Touchpad with the plan of throwing on android, setting it up for my kid to use for movies, music, and maybe some apps... What is the most stable build of Jelly Bean or Kit Kat that I could setup a kid friendly, capable tablet? have rooted one device (Nook Color) before so I understand the process slightly but I don't even know where to start with this. Thanks for any suggestions.

DONATE TO ME
Which version? I'm running JCSullins 10.1 VPN fix and it's been fine for me, not data media either which I prefer. Low battery drain, everything seems to work, and used the old 2.6 kernel so a bit more stable.

The data media builds are really only 1 additional zip file (for the repartitioning) and I've had great experience so far with jcsullins CM11, smooth and no battery drain issues.

Do these roms you guys are using have "network settings" for data connectivity?

Don't think I have that, where are you finding that?

There are plenty of stable rooms for the WiFi only touchpad here in the development section....before I got this 4g touchpad I was running kk on mine and it was really stable.....the evolver roms are very good...

I don't see that on the CM11 ROM I am using. No wireless & network option within settings. Just Wi-Fi menu.

Looking for the same thing here. Mine are still on cm10 but I'd like something more stable. Bonus if Netflix works on it.
