[webOS] The HP Touchpad Guide (to homebrew/overclocking) [Mac/Windows/Linux]
Thanks to all of you that have hit thanks on my posts. You make me look good
As many of you know, there is a way to install Preware which is not unlike Cydia on the iPad. WebOS has a great homebrew community that is supported by HP. Perks include Overclocking to 1.5+Ghz, free homebrew apps, and many great tweaks. Try it out by following the directions below.
If your TouchPad isn't seen by the PC your using, download and install the WebOS SDK here.
-Download WebOS Quick install to your computer HERE
-Put your Touchpad into development mode by:
Launching Device Info and tap its top-left menu.
Selecting "Custom Application..." and typing in: ##3386633#
In the application, move the Developer Mode slider to the On position.
Tap Reset the Device.
When reset is complete, Developer mode is enabled.
IMPORTANT : DONT MAKE A PASSWORD ON DEVELOPMENT MODE OR YOU'LL HAVE TO WIPE YOUR ENTIRE PAD.
-Plug in your pad and tap charge only on the prompt (in the corner).
-Now go to quick install on your computer, launch it (you may have to update Java)
-Hit the little globe button, and wait for things to load.
-Scroll down to Preware and install it. (Your device might reboot after installation.)
-You can now install things from preware, like Uberkernel that overclocks the processor to 1.5ghz (under Kernels)
Note : to Oc, you must download the app govnah from preware.
This was done on my MacBook pro, should work with windows or anything really, as long as Java works.
To sideloade apps, install Internalz pro and you can install .ipk files, which are the same as .apk and .ipa files for android and ios.
For more info until this community grows, go to Precentral, its like XDA for webOS. Tons of good people over there. Thanks to Rootzwiki and Precentral for helping me out too.
