So, when you install the Alpha CyanogenMod 7 build, chances are ClockworkMod Recovery will fail. This tends to be because the custom overclocked kernels in WebOS take up a lot of room in the /boot partition, and ACMEInstaller does NOT (And maybe cannot) resize this partition. If you want to use ClockworkMod, you need to boot it via novacom.
1. Unzip the update-cwm_tenderloin-1012.zip file into the same directory as Novacom.
2. Make sure your TouchPad is plugged into your computer, and reboot it while holding volume up. You should see a USB icon.
3. In the command line, browse to the directory Novacom is installed in.
4. Type this into the command line prompt:
novacom boot mem:// < uImage.ClockworkMod
You should now be able to flash gapps or whatever else you need to install (Except moboot, which you need to use ACMEInstaller to install)
Novacom is probably installed in: "C:\Program Files\Palm, Inc" for most users.
To get there in the command line, type:
cd "C:\Program Files\Palm, Inc\"
Then you can continue on to step 4.
