Update (10/16):
The next release will be vastly improved. 0.1 alpha is just a card concept and may not be usable. This release will be usable and fix most unpleasant display issues. We will move to beta soon.

Please be advised, Alpha release is full of bugs and is advised NOT to be installed. It is up to you to take the risk and taste the concept.

Stay tuned, and IPK will be ready within 7 days.


Update (10/8):

The IPK is ready. You can check a screenshot here:

Not be able to fix sound issue in this release. May still experience some screen flicking. Airplane icon is not removable, please just ignore it (some program may still report network issue).

There are still lots of work to do.

Downloading: http://www.wupload.com/file/344498750

Update (10/06):

The last release is skipped since more candies are coming.

1. Fake SD card is mounted now. Programs need SD access can be run.
2. Wifi issue is solved. No network issues.

The author is working on sound issue and will wrap around in the next two days and release the next very alpha very soon.


Update (10/05):

I am not the author (Chomper_T) of this project. All information is copied from his blog.

The IPK is running in a card today (no need to implement hardware switches such as wifi, bluetooth or power), and you can manipulate this card like any other WebOS apps. Whether implementing one single card or multiple sub-cards like built-in browser is open to discussion. Will release the update soon.

The next update will be openGL, which will improve multimedia performance.

Still in Alpha. (10/04)

Download:
http://115.com/file/aq7ufs34#chomper..._0.0.1_all.ipk
The IPK file is about 81MB, and need more than 5 mins to be installed via preware only. Just be patient and will do no harm to your Webos.

Authors blog: (You need a weibo account to access.)

Limits:

0. Initial language is Chinese only. You can switch language in settings (may need some tries and guess ).

1. Wifi switch is not working. Using webos Wifi switch. The network will always show airplane mode, but you can use the browser now.

2. Single touch so far.

3. Keys: Home: home, Power: power, Volume upper: back, volume down: menu

4. The whole IPK runs as OS so far, and will run in a card in next release.

5. SD card is not mounted so far, so any program using SD card will not work.

6. Usable space has only 11MB left, therefore any big APK will not work.

7. No google market so far. Put your apks in /APKS folder when you mount your tablet as a USB drive.

8. All other things do not work so far.

In order to go back to webos, you need "press and hold" the power button for 5 secs and then select the third option.

If the touchscreen does not work, you can reboot by pressing "home + power" for 15 secs.

Don't worry, all things will be fixed quickly since there is no hardware or big driver issues here.
