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

I read on one of these forums that Flintman has moved the forum for his rom to another platform. Problem is, I can't find out where to! Anybody know?

Thanks a billion!

Hi, happy holidays and new year to you and yours, thanks. I don't have a tutorial for that myself but I Googled it here. There was some info however I don't know if any of this will work anymore now that the WebOS servers have shutdown completely, I do have a video talking about that below. If you follow step 2 you shouldn't have a problem with WebOS as its on a different partition and installing android won't affect it, so long as you don't do a complete data reset(step5).

Edit: Checkout post #14 in this thread here Seems to be the best WebOS back up and restore info I've seen. Also interesting info about a data base you can download 6000+ WebOS apps from(here) now that they're considered abandonware.

Day two update: all is still working great. Thank you so much for creating this forum. I thought it would be helpful to list the issues I have to check if other people have the same or if I have found new problems.

[I am running the 26-12-2016 nightly build]

- Only the back (triangle) button works. The square and circle do nothing.
- Gmail app wont sync emails
- If you Restart the tablet it continually loops in a restart cycle (i.e. you cannot use it). Solution I have found is to shut down only.
- Clock app doesn't work, I have disabled the app and don't get the message anymore.

Otherwise everything is working, I have BBC iPlayer on it, Plants Vs Zombies, VPlayer, Sling Kong. Great! My Dad was going to get rid of this tablet but now it is repurposed for my kids (to play games, watch TV programmes on long car journeys) etc.

Only the 'left' Back (Triangle) button is working?
OooooK, Just when I though I'd seen it all with our beloved TouchPad.....

Is this happening in both Landscape _and_ Portrait mode?
Can you swipe down from the top and the menu 'pulls' down?

Hi Dan

Yes those buttons do not work in landscape or portrait mode. The triangle button always works.

I can swipe down for the menu in both landscape and portrait mode. Is this a new problem?

Are the other issues I have common?

Thanks for your help, Andrew

It is using:
open_gapps-arm-7.1-pico-20161217.zip

This is the one I got from using the links on the forum. Is this version ok?

That should be fine. Did you verify them against their md5's?
If it is not a physical hardware fault we should be able to track it down.
