1)Getting started, Requirements and Preparation:
A)You must have Java and the novacom software installed on your PC before running Jcsullins Touchpad Toolbox.
Click here to Download Java
Download the Novacom files and manually install the driver for your OS here or here
OR
Click here to Download the Universal Novacom Installer 1.4.1
Note: The universal installer isn't working anymore manually install the driver.

B)Backup, Backup, Backup, Using the "Complete Data Reset" feature of the TPtoolbox or the "Erase USB drive" from WebOS, will delete absolutely everything on your HP TouchPad!


2)(Optional)Time to Choose the Fate of WebOS:
Note: If you wish to remove WebOS or have already removed it just skip to step # 3


If you wish to keep WebOS then do the following steps:
Uninstall Android and Clean up your SDcard:
A]Uninstall Android completely by using the ACMEUinstaller2, watch the instructional video below. After uninstalling Android you will automatically reboot to WebOS.

How to use the ACMEUninstaller2 (Short Version)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VP-FH6fS2GI
1)Install the Novacom software(You installed this in step 1)

2)Next place this ACMEUninstaller2 file into the Novacom folder.
-By default this folder will be located on your PC @ C:/Program Files/ Palm, Inc. Mac OS X users will find this folder @ /opt/nova/bin.
-Download the ACMEUninstaller2 file and copy and paste it right into either of those directories.

3)Boot the tablet into WebOS recovery mode and attach it with the USB cable to your PC.
Download and extract these ACME5 batch files and run the "removecm2.bat" file to uninstall Android.

Or
Open a command prompt and type the following:

On Your PC
cd c:\Program Files\Palm, Inc (enter)
novacom.exe boot mem:// < ACMEUninstaller2 (enter)

On your Mac
cd /opt/nova/bin (enter)
./novacom boot mem:// < ACMEUninstaller2 (enter)

How to enter WebOS recovery mode from Android:
-If you currently have Android installed you can hold down the power button choose reboot and select "webOS recovery mode" from the moboot menu.

-Hold down the volume up button while the Touchpad reboots. Once you see the large USB symbol on the screen release the volume button.
Connect the HP Touchpad to your PC via the USB cable.


B]Now from WebOS we will wipe our SDcard before the TPtoolbox can setup our partition/volumes. Completely wipe your SDcard by booting into WebOS and going to, launcher/settings/device info/reset options/erase USB drive. The Touchpad will then reboot itself and the data will be completely erased. Note: This will not affect your WebOS setup, apps or Preware. Now continue in this guide but skip step 5)Complete Data Reset.

Download Android 4.4.4 Kitkat install files(Recovery, Rom, Gapps):
Recovery:TWRP-jcs-dm-tenderloin-20140612b.zip
Rom: Download the latest Lineage11 build here
Gapps:gapps-base-arm-4.4.4-20170902-1-signed.zip
Note: Do Not unzip the files.

-Once the files are finished transferring to the HP TP select Unmount Media Volume from the TPtoolbox menu.
-The TPtoolbox will now check the files for compatibility then begin to set your partitions/volumes.
-If the TPtoolbox fails to run it will display which file is incompatible, start the install again and replace the offending file(s).
Note: Flintmans newest TWRP builds cannot be installed with the TPtoolbox and must be flashed from an older legacy recovery.

7)How to change the Partition/Volume sizes(Required for Android 9.x/8.1.x/.7.1.2)

-Before confirming the OS installation scroll down and choose Adjust Volume Sizes from the TPtoolbox menu
-Scroll down to the cm-data volume and select it, then scroll down to -1024 and select that
-Scroll up and go back a page in the menu, next highlight cm_system from the menu and select it
-Scroll down to +1024 and select that
-Scroll up and go back a page in the menu, select APPLY Changes and confirm the partition layout
-Now confirm the OS installation by selecting Yes and pressing the home button. Your Recovery Rom and Gapps will be flashed automatically.
Note: I recommended setting the cm-data volume to 2048mb+. Optionally you can increase the cm-cache to 400mb+, users say it could improve performance with Oreo.

TPToolbox Auto Installs your Rom, Gapps and Recovery(Please stand by..)
-The details of partition/volume resizing will scroll across the TPtoolboxes bottom output window and the device will auto reboot into recovery. The Rom and Gapps package will now be installed automatically, this may take a few minutes, Please stand by..... Once complete the Touchpad will restart and boot into Android.
Note:You now have the most stable mature Rom installed on your HP Touchpad(Milaq's Lineage 11 Android 4.4.4). You may wish to stay here or come back to this setup if you have issues with newer 9.x or 8.1.x or 7.1.2 builds.
-I recommend making a nandroid backup at this point to easily return to this version of Android.

8)Download and Transfer Android 9.x/8.1.x/7.1.2 install files to the HP TouchPad
-Once the tablet boots to Android KitKat, connect the USB cable to the tablet and your PC.
Note: You can also transfer files directly from TWRP by plugging in the USB cable to the PC
-Transfer over the 3 android 9.x or 8.1.x or 7.1.2 zip files below, Recovery, Rom, and Gapps, to the HP Touchpad. I put the files into my downloads folder.

Download Android 9.x or 8.1.x or 7.1.2 install files(Recovery, Rom, Gapps):
Recovery:FLINTMAN-TWRP-3.2.1-0-03-15-2018
Rom: Download the Final Dirty Unicorns 9.x build here(RC tab) or here
Gapps:Download Open gapps 9.x Pico


Optional Roms:
-Replace the above rom and gapps with one of these other choices.
-Use the same recovery FLINTMAN-TWRP-3.2.1-0-03-15-2018 for all 9.x/8.1/7.1 builds


9)Reboot into legacy TWRP recovery, flash the new TWRP 3.2.1.0
Hold down the power button reboot the tablet select TWRP Recovery from moboot.
-From TWRP Select Install then look for the download folder containing your 3 android install files on the left side menu.
-Select and flash the file, FLINTMAN-TWRP-3.2.1-0-03-15-2018, then go back, reboot and again select TWRP from the menu.
Note: Flintmans newest TWRP builds cannot be installed with the TPtoolbox and must be flashed from an older legacy recovery.

10)Reboot into TWRP recovery 3.2.1.0, Flash the Android 9.x/8.1.x/7.1.2 Rom and Gapps
-Once in the new TWRP 3.2.1 go to the Wipe menu and select Advanced Wipe.
-Select the System partition and swipe to wipe.
-Click on the TWRP home button(bottom middle) to return to the main menu.
-Select Install, locate the download folder on the left menu.
-Select and install the 9.x/8.1.2/7.1.2 Rom and the Gapps package then reboot.
-After choosing to install the rom click the button to add additional zips, add the gapps package and put a check beside reboot when complete.
Note: The first boot to android 9.0/8.1.2/7.1.2 can take some time, Wait for it...


Follow up Q & A:
How do I update my rom to a newer version?
-To update your rom you need to do what is called a dirty flash.
-Download the latest version of the installed rom onto the device.
-Reboot into TWRP recovery and flash the rom, just like you did in step 10 but without the gapps package.

How do I change my rom, do I have to start from the beginning?
-To quickly change to a different rom download the rom and gapps to the device and reboot into TWRP recovery.
-From TWRP select the "Wipe" menu then swipe to factory reset (warning this wipes your data).
-Go back to the main menu and install the desired rom and gapps then reboot.
-Be warned switching to various versions of Android like this could cause a boot loop, if you get stuck just start over with the TPtoolbox.

How can I Easily speed up any Android Rom?
-Download and flash the SKZ Easy Swapfile from recovery here
-Read about it in Shumash's SKZ Easy Swapfile thread here

What Roms do I recommend?
#1 Android Kitkat 4.4.4 I highly recommend this build for people who want the most stable reliable rom. This is your set it and forget it rom. From the golden age of HP Touchpad development, these roms have the least amount of issues and bugs.

#2 Android 7.1.2 Nougat, LineageOS 14.1 is a well matured rom with good app compatibility, thread here. The Evervolv rom can use some tweaking to fix a lag issue but it works well overall and has full functionality.

#3 Android 8.1 Oreo is fully functional but can have slight performance issues, Shumash's Kernel plus SU zip for root can help.

#4 Android 9.0 Pie is brand new, the camera and Bluetooth are not currently working and other bugs might be present. Make a backup of your current rom before installing. This Rom might not be ready to be your daily driver just yet but big thanks to Flintman and elginsk8r for keeping development alive.

Problem: My AOSP Keyboard keeps crashing at start

The solution: Download and install an apk for the Google Keyboard here


Problem: Help I'm missing Super User/Root Access

The solution:
To enable Super User/Root access download and flash this SuperSU zip here.
Note: Root is available by default on most roms such as Lineage11 but missing from Oreo 8.1 DU.
-To get root with Oreo 8.1 DU you must also flash Sumashs SKZ custom Kernel here
-You will need to reflash both of these zips each time you update your rom.

How do I overclock my HP TouchPad?
-Us the Kernel Adiutor (ROOT) app here to overclock your CPU/GPU.
-In order to overclock the Touchpad you must have root access.

My HP TouchPad won't turn on is it bricked?
-If your battery has been fully drained, then you may need to leave it charging for a full day
-When the battery is fully drained it can take the TouchPad a long time to reach even the lowest battery level
-The USB cable does not transfer enough power to effectively charge the tablet
-You must use the wall plug when charging the HP TouchPad
-After charging the HP TouchPad try the following key combinations

key combinations to turn the HP TouchPad off or on when not responding:
-Hold down the Power and Home buttons together for 30sec
-Hold down the Power button and click the Home key 14 times
-hold down, home + power + volume down for 30+ seconds

I've tried everything and the tablet won't turn on?
-If the tablet does not turn on after the previous steps it may be bricked or have a dead battery(white battery symbol with ? in the middle).
-If bricked you can run JCSullins TPDebrick procedure to revive your tablet, links below:
TPDebrick v004 Jcsullins dedicated TPDebrick thread(Rootzwiki)
TPDebrick v004 Jcsullins TPDebrick thread(XDA)
Download Jcsullins tpdebrick v004 and v005

-Here is an instructional video made by Joshsnice. It's a little hard to follow and has three parts but with this and the forum threads, you should have enough info to get through the procedure.
Note: Run the 32bit version of Linux

How do I replace the HP TouchPads battery?
-Replacing the battery is not an easy procedure and you'll have to find a replacement battery on eBay/Amazon
-HP TouchPad Battery Replacement guide from iFixit here
-HP TouchPad battery replacement disassembly video here

How can I check my battery drain and performance to compare with your guide?
-Test your Battery drain with the 3C battery monitor widget here
-Test your performance with the Antutu Benchmark here


How can I check my current Android version and System Partition size?
-Get the free Quick System Info pro app to check the size of your partitions and remaining free space here
-Check your version of Android by going to settings/About Tablet/Android Version.


How can I check my MD5 in Windows?
-Download and extract the free Hasher program here
-Run the Hasher.exe, browse to the file you want to check and push the "Calculate" button.
-Compare the MD5 result with the MD5 of the file in question, if it doesn't match exactly redownload the file.


How do I make a Nandroid backup?
I highly recommend you make a Nandroid backup after installing and setting up Android on your HP TouchPad. This perfectly preserves your current configuration and can easily be restored through TWRP, CWM, Philz CWM Recovery.
How to make a backup and flash roms from TWRP recovery Video
Note: skip the part about Goo as it no longer exists


Problem:
Help I can't steam video with apps like Netfix, Amazon, MagineTv, Waipu TV and many others.

The solution:
Checkout Widevine's streaming fix in his thread here. Download his android 7.1.1 widevine.zip or Android 4.4.4 widevine.zip file and flash it TWRP recovery.

[Disclaimer]
I am not responsible for bricked devices, lost data, spillt milk, etc. Backup, Backup, Backup, Using the "Complete Data Reset" feature of the TPtoolbox or the "Erase USB drive" from WebOS, will delete absolutely everything on your HP TouchPad! So you will want to make sure you have your personal data files(music, pictures, videos, etc.) backed up on your computer. Don't forget to move your Nandroid backups onto your PC. By default CWM/TWRP backups are located in SDcard/clockworkmod/backup or SDcard/TWRP/backup .

Note: Make sure your tablet is fully charged before starting any install procedure on the HP TouchPad. Running out of batteries during an install will ruin the process and possibly damage the device.



[Special Thanks]
We all must give thanks to the talented people who helped to make our HP TouchPad Great! Thanks to Flintman, Elginsk8r, Jcsullins, Flemmard, Dorregaray, Invisiblek, Milaq, Shumash, Erik Hardesty, Drmarble, Arco, Steve Kondik, Eyeballer, Verygreen and anyone else that helped to make this happen.

Thank you, Roland. You always do a wonderful job on your tutorials. I wouldn't use anyone else's. I have a question. There is what is called a "Virtual USB drive" detected. When I tap on it, it asks if I want to use it as a portable storage or internal storage. Which should I choose?

Hey thanks so much The media partition is being read as an SDcard, nothing is on there but the ttinstall folder and possibly WebOS. I'd choose portable storage to keep it acting like an SDcard. Setting it to internal storage might reformat it and make it harder for the toolbox to find. I did the internal storage option on my phone and the SDcard came up as internal storage but I lost a bit of total space and wasn't able to separate it easily. You can adjust this on the tablet from settings/storage settings/. Update: I've heard some reports of WebOS not booting when it's set to internal storage, thanks

If anyone has already tried the internal storage option please post and let us know if it effects the TPtoolboxs access to the partiton, thanks

Thank you so much for your help. I have another question. I get the clock has stopped working message when I reboot the Touchpad. Has anyone else had this happen. Is it just a problem with the nightly that will be taken care of in a later one?

No problem glad to help I've experienced the same issue with the clock stopping at boot, so far its the only app I've had problems with. It crashes when you to try to open the clock app too. If you need to use the clock for an alarm or what have you get another free Clock from the play store. Any other clock app works fine, I believe its been posted about in the Evervolv Nougat thread but it still seems to happen. I expect it will get fixed sooner or later but its probably a low priority.

Great tutorials
But i have a question about this step "B)Backup, Backup, Backup, Using the "Complete Data Reset" feature of the TPtoolbox or the "Erase USB drive" from WebOS, will delete absolutely everything on your HP TouchPad! "

Did you have a video tutorial how backup Touchpad (WebOS) (img of system and app) to restore this if Android install problem.

Thanks for your help
And happy holidays to you and yours
