Notes, Fixes and Tweaks:
Note:The following are Solutions for the most Frequently asked questions and problems.

 
1)If the WiFi turns off in Sleep/suspend mode then uncheck wifi optimization.

-This will enable the TouchPad to transfer files and charge using the USB cable.

3)If your Touchpad skips moboot and boots right into Android, then do the following:
-Hold the home key while booting to force moboot to display the Menu.
-To fix this problem use a Rooted File explorer, like X-plore, to delete the moboot.next file located @ Root/Boot/
-This problem is often caused by using the CyBoot app in WebOS.

10/19/2013 Builds based on Jcsullins CM10 that include the Master key exploit fixes: By iMark90



The Problem: A Master key security exploit issue was discovered in CM9/CM10 that was later fixed in all Android 4.2+ builds. However this still effects many HP TouchPad CM10 builds. You can test for these exploits by installing and running the Bluebox security test App here.

The solution: RootzWiki member iMarck90 has included the Master key fixes into two new builds of Jcsullins CM10. These builds by iMarck90 are entirely based on the fantastic work of Jcsullins, Dorregaray, and Dr Marbel, et al. Install these new CM10 builds by dirty flashing them over your current build of CM9/CM10.

Note:In addition to these fixes iMarck90 has included all the current upstream changes like, Jcsullins newer WiFi drivers V4.5 and Bluetooth fixes.

How and when to Use the WebOS Doctor(Important):


 
Q: What’s the WebOS Doctor and when should I use it?

The WebOS Doctor is a program that has two main functions for HP TouchPad users. It can either update your version of WebOS or fix problems with a damaged WebOS by completely reinstalling it. If WebOS no longer boots or apps and preware have stopped working correctly, then you will need to resinstall WebOS with the Doctor. A failed or interrupted attempt at changing the partition sizes with WebOS preware app Tailor may cause these problems. To check what version of WebOS is currently installed go to Launcher(Up Arrow)/Settings/Device Info/ Version

Note(Important): You MUST uninstall Android before running the WebOS doctor. Failing to remove Android before running the Doctor can result in the process becoming stuck at 8-12% and potentially bricking the device. If you are currently stuck visit the thread below for information about fixing the problem. If you’re unable to use the tablet at all follow the instructions in Jcsullins TPDebrick thread.
The Official Fix your TouchPad ( 8-12% stopped, No SD, Opps reformat, $&^#!@&# crap....) thread.(Rootzwiki)
The Official Fix your TouchPad ( 8-12% stopped, No SD, Opps reformat, $&^#!@&# crap....) thread.(CM)
TPDebrick v004 - Jcsullins dedicated thread for fixing Bricked TouchPads:

Note(Important): Running the Doctor will completely wipe all personal information, applications and preware from the TouchPad. Media like music and movies will not be affected. However I would recommend backing your important files to PC, before running the Doctor.

Note(Important): In order to install apps from the WebOS store you will need to get the Root Certificate fix for WebOS cloud services.
[Video+Guide] HP TouchPad Root Certificate fix for WebOS cloud services


How to run the WebOS Doctor:

1) Install Java
-Java must be installed in order for the TouchPad to communicate with your PC.

2) You MUST completely uninstall Android from the HP TouchPad before running the WebOS doctor. Remove Android by running the ACMEUinstaller2. Watch the following video for full uninstall instructions.
How to Uninstall Android or CyanogenMod on the HP TouchPad (All versions)

3) Download the latest 3.0.5 WebOS doctor application to your PC. If upgrading you can check your current version from WebOS by going to Launcher(Up Arrow)/Settings/Device Info/ Version.
WebOS Doctor 3.0.0 to 3.0.5 Official Links

4) Put the tablet into WebOS recovery mode by doing the following:
-In WebOS Reboot the device by going to Launcher(Up Arrow)/Settings/Device Info/ select “Reset options” choose restart.
-As soon as the screen goes dark hold down the volume up button until you enter WebOS Recovery mode. Note the large USB symbol that should be on the screen. If you miss it just reboot again and hold down the Volume up button right away. Once in WebOS recovery mode connect your USB cable to the PC.

5) Now you’re ready to run the WebOS Doctor app by clicking on the .jar file you downloaded in the previous step. Be sure that your tablet is fully charged and connected with the USB cable before starting this process. Running out of power or interrupting this process in anyway could brick your HP TouchPad. Please be careful and fully read the instructions before beginning.
-Double click the webosdoctor.jar file to launch the app
-Select your language then click next
-Accept the licence agreement, read the warning message then select next to begin the install.

The Problem:
Developer James Sullins, Aka Jcsullins, has informed HP TouchPads users that there is a problem with our tablets A6 Firmware. This issue can cause an usually high battery drain during sleep. This problem occurs overtime while running both CyanogeMod and WebOS, on the HP TouchPad. As a results the Touchpads battery drains more quickly with daily use and the overall life span is reduced.

The Solution:
Reflashing the A6 Firmware effectively fixes the problem but may need to be repeated as a part of regular HP TouchPad maintenance. Watch this video and follow the step by step instructions to reflash your own Touchpads A6 Firmware.

How to test:
How to monitor your battery
To monitor your battery drain history during sleep install the free app Battery Monitor Widget:

Rom Flashing issues with CWM5 (Important):
[spoiler]
The Problem:
-Developer Green has advised that using CWM5 to install(flash) a nightly or format the /data and /system partitions, may introduce corruption into the file system.
-It is advised to avoid updating though CWM5 for this reason.
-By installing Jcsullins new CWM6 you can avoid future corruption.(Included)
-CWM6 Download:
-Updating your Rom with CWM5 can cause the inode errors seen in double penguin mode while installing with the ACEMEInstaller3.
-Due to corruption introduced from flashing/Updating Roms though CWM5, your system partition may have errors.

The Solution: (Also a safe way to upgrade from CM9-CM10)
-Uninstalling CyanogenMod with the ACMEUninstaller and freshly installing with the ACMEInstaller 3 will resolve any possible issues.
-To avoid problems when updating from CM9-CM10 you should first make a full Nandroid backup, then uninstall CM9.
-Next Fully install CM9 using the ACMEInstaller3.
-Once Complete restore your CM9 Nandroid backup,
-Now you can safely update from CM9- CM10 with the ACMEInstaller3 or
-You can also safely flash the CM10 Rom and gapps package with CWM6.
-It’s fine to flash regular.zip files through CWM5; such as gapps files, fixes/patches and CWM6.zip These will not cause corruption and are safe for daily flashing.
-Use CWM6 from now on Download:
-Note* CWM6 has already been included for everyone using this guide to install CyanogenMod for the first time.

Partition Size Problems and ACMEInstaller3(Important):

 
The Problem:
-CM10 requires a larger partition size than CM9.
-The ACMEInstaller 3 is meant to increase the partition size from 300MB to 400MB.
-CM9 only needed 300MB but Jelly Bean is a larger Rom and requires more space(350MB).
-In some cases users have reported 0.0/400MB of space left after installing CM10.
-Although everything may still run fine it is recommend to leave at least a little space free. The consequences of running it without free space are not known.

How to monitor free System Storage space with CM10(Optional):
-You can use a free app,Quick System Info PRO, to check the size of your partitions and remaining free space, it should be = 387MB or 402MB. Either of these is acceptable and indicates that the ACMEInstaller3 worked correctly.
-Having a system size of 387Mib = 400MB and is perfectly normal after using ACME3
-Users report having a size of 394 after flashing to a new Rom. This is also acceptable.
-If your partition is an odd size or you get random reboots,then you may have encountered problems due to flashing you Rom.

Quick System Info PRO Video Link:
Quick System Info PRO Play Store Link:

-If you use the ACMEInstaller3 and then later restore your Nandroid backup of CM9, you will still retain the larger partition size.
-You can then use CWM or TWRP to safely flash from CM9-CM10 but flashing from CM10-CM9 can cause a boot loop.

How to free up System Storage space with CM10(Optional):
I believe I have located about 15.89MB of data we can safely delete. Android in space videos and Phone Ring tones are located @
root/system/media/videos & root/system/media/audio/ring tones.

X-plore File Manager, use this app to delete the files:

Note* X-plore needs to be given Root Permissions by clicking the 3 dots in the corner and choosing configuration. Here check your Root Access settings. SuperUser + Mount Writable, this is what it should say. Next you may need to reboot before it takes effect.

How to guide for changing your system, data, and cache partition sizes(Optional): (Gradular)

Service How to install Android 4.2 and 4.3 Builds on the HP TouchPad
Hello HP TouchPad users, Great News! Android 4.2, 4.3 and 4.4 Roms are now available. These Roms are almost fully functional except for a few that lack Bluetooth support see the Rom notes. Most builds have h/w video, Camera, WiFi, Bluetooth, Sound & Mic support. Battery drain during sleep is low around (-4mA to -10mA) for most builds, see guide. Below you will find a comparison and overview of all the available Android 4.2, 4.3 and 4.4 Roms. Read the summarized descriptions for important information and notes about the builds. Remember many of these are testing builds, so Please make a nandroid backup and read the information carefully. Please thank and leave our incredible developers some feedback here or in the related threads.

General Unofficial Release Notes:
 
Working:
-Sound and Mic
-Camera
-H/W Video
-SDcard
-WiFi
-Most builds have a Low to medium battery drain during sleep -4mA to -10mA or -4mA to -30mA(See below)

Known Issues:
-Flashing CM9/CM10 Over CM10.1/Android4.2/4.3 through CWM or TWRP, can cause a boot loop.(use a Backup)
If your HP TouchPad is stuck in a boot loop or not responding Don't Panic! Try the following:
-Hold down the Power and Home buttons together for 30sec to force the TouchPad to Reboot.
-Hold down the Power button and click the Home key 14 times.
-Doing an install with ACMEInstaller can sometimes result in a boot loop.
-To fix the boot loop, Use a backup or flash the Rom and Gapps package through CWM or TWRP.


The usual HP TouchPad battery drain issues:
-If your battery is heavily drained, then you may need to leave it charging for a full day.
-When the battery is fully drained it can take the TP a longtime to reach even the lowest battery level.
-The USB cable that comes with the HP TP is often defective and breaks easily. Try using another USB cable if possible.
-The USB cable does not transfer enough power to effectively charge the tablet. You must use the wall plug when charging the HP TouchPad.
-To be safe don't let your TouchPad run out of Batteries ever!!
-You can add an automatic shutdown Rule
-AutomateIt, Play Store Link- What to do: New Rule/Trigger Battery level(Below 20%)/Action/Shutdown//save. Or
-Llama, Play Store Link- Location Profiles:Event tab choose + (at the bottom of the screen) Addcondition (battery Level Below 20%) Actions (turn off phone)




How to update/install Android 4.2, 4.3 and 4.4 Builds on the HP TouchPad
Disclaimer: Make a backup before installing any of these Roms! Testing builds should only be used by experienced users whom are familiar with recovering their device.

Clean install(Recommended):
When updating your version of Android its recommended to do a clean install of Android. You can do this by using your recovery(CWM or TWRP) to Format/Wipe the system data and the cache partitions. You can also fully Uninstall and Reinstall Android to accomplish a clean install. You will find a full step by step instructional video below. First choose an Android 4.2, 4.3 or 4.4 Rom and Gapps package from the detailed guides. Next transfer the two .zip files to your Android device with the USB or direct download them. Watch the how to update video below for step by step instructions. note that you must have the correct Gapps for your version of Android or you may experience errors with the Keyboard, Play Store or other Google apps.

Note(Important):If you have not installed Android before, then start by using the "Easy Way" guide below and installing one of the prepared install packages. Once you have Android running make a Nandroid backup before trying the large selection of available Roms in this thread. If you are currently using an older version of Android like 2.3 or 4.0.1(CM7/CM9), then you should do a Full uninstall and reinstall. This fixes several problematic issues like increasing the system partition size from 400-600MB to accommodate larger Android 4.2+(CM10+) Roms. If you're currently using a newer Rom like CM10+ and have CWM6+ then you can upgrade with a clean install after increasing your system partition size. You can do this by using the WebOS Preware app Tailor, or by using a flashable 512MB zip located in Gradular's thread, How to guide for changing your system, data, and cache partition sizes to whatever you want.


How to check your Android version and System Partition size:
-Get the free app,Quick System Info PRO, to check the size of your partitions and remaining free space.
-Having a System Partition size of 500-600MB is needed when installing Android 4.2+ Roms.
-Check your version of Android by going to Settings/About Tablet/Android Version.

Tailor Video:
 





Don't forget! First make a Nandroid backup of your current setup! Full CWM and TWRP Video here:

Dirty Flash(Not Recommended):
If you wish to keep your current setup and have made a Nandroid backup, then you can attempt to upgrade using a Dirty flash. Download your selected Rom and gapps zips and flash them through CWM or TWRP recovery. Don't forget to wipe your caches, Click here to see a how to dirty flash your Rom video clip.I would only recommend doing this over similar Roms and only moving upwards version wise. For example CM10 to CM10.1 or Evevolv AOSP 4.3 to 4.4. Flashing CM10.2 to CM10.1 can cause boot loops, so be sure to have a backup before you attempt any Dirty flashing.

Clean Install vs Dirty Install Rom/Updates via Recovery: (After initial install with Acme3) ->Mpgrimm2 Quote

 
"Clean installing" a rom usually means to format the 3 basic partitions (& sometimes the /boot too depending on the rom/kernel script) and flash the rom as recommended by most devs to avoid issues (some rom installer scripts will handle the formatting for you, but shouldn't be assumed unless stated by the rom's developer. 9-14-13: See Attachment for example).

"Dirty Installing" a rom typically involves formatting the system & cache (sometimes only the cache :thumbdown: ) and flashing a rom to preserve /data partition with user apps & settings.
A cleaner method for this is to format all 3 partitions, flash rom, and restore only /data from a backup.

I've rarely seen dirty installs recommended by devs, but when I have seen them say it was "OK to try", it was done on the same rom/firmware base between incremental rom updates only (vs b/w CM7 - CM9 or CM9 - CM10, etc), and if you had a bug, you needed to go back and do a clean install before reporting it or expecting help. I will add that many people have been successful restoring their CM9 data after flashing CM10 & Gapps.
See Picture here:

"Full Install" Installing Android on the HP TouchPad by using the ACMEINstaller5 to flash zips located in the cminstall folder.

"Full Uninstall and Reinstall" Removing Android with the ACMEUninstaller then Fully Installing Android with the ACMEInstaller5.

Found it Roland! I'll PM BigSimon. Don't forget to add the "Edited: 2-13-13" so it matches the date on the Rootz thread, and maybe throw in that picture I posted showing the correct Palm,Inc folder contents.

You really need that edited date in the OP if possible. Pehaps you can modify the title to fit for both sites..
