If you are not familiar making any major changes to the Android OS.
The first thing you should know what to do is Backup and Restore.
Make sure you have a valid All partitions backup and save on your PC.
Then you can make modifications, if anything goes wrong. Just restore it and all is same as before!


These steps will help you in creating a backup and be able to restore it to the same Tablet or any other HP TOUCHPAD.

How to create a Backup and restore using Team Win TWRP Recovery ( provided by Flintman ) Many Thanks to Flintman for his great work!


On the TWRP screen touch on Backup

Select the partitions to backup (Boot) (Cache) (Data) (System)
(Disable Skip MD5 generation during backup)

Select the storage (Internal Storage) (Micro SDCard)

Once the backup has completed.

Connect Tablet to Computer by USB


Go to the storage where you selected to save the backup files: (Internal Storage) or (Micro SDCard)

Go to
TWRP/BACKUPS/30N5HOIN9SAMLASPK9V41ADEBSR44B6B (that number will be different)

Select the folder under it, which is a folder with the date of the backup, Copy this folder to your Computer.

Let's assumed that the worse happened, the entire Tablet got wipe out.

To restore backup store in your Computer.

1. Create a new backup using TWRP as you did the first time, select any partition example boot. (It can be empty) (This is done to allow TWRP to create the folder structure and detect the files that you will copy to be restore)

2. Select storage, large enough to copy files from your previous backup that are on your Computer to the Tablet.

Go to the backup that was just created.
TWRP/BACKUPS/30N5HOIN9SAMLASPK9V41ADEBSR44B6B (that number will be different)
Delete the folder under it, which it has the date as the name.

Copy the folder store on your Computer
TWRP/BACKUPS/30N5HOIN9SAMLASPK9V41ADEBSR44B6B (that number will be different)

Select Restore

The backup that was copy from Computer (old backup) will be listed to be restore, in Select Package to Restore
Select all the partitions that you want to restore. All data selected, will be restore.

Many Backups can be created and save into PC and replace when need it.[/SIZE]
