    Be warned. It's from the Touchdroid group. Not a lot works. You may want to wait for a CyanogenMod team version.
    Thanks for the good news....

    I'll wait for Honeycomb, but I guess that'll be a long wait.

    Honeycomb is never going to open source. Ice Cream Sandwich will be though.

    Ice cream sandwich is more likely to come.

    How to install Android on your Touchpad.



    Again, you may want to wait for a stable release. There's not a lot that works.

    Don't get me wrong I love Android and may even try to port it over when it becomes available, that is getting less and less likely the longer that I have my TP. If I want the latest Android news I will go to Android Central. Why can't we just be happy with the OS we have on our TP because IMHO, not counting the Apps in the Android market, WebOS is a better tablet OS than Honeycomb.

    Sorry about the rant.
    Are these same discussions on Android Central? Why are people making threads about Android on a webOS dedicated site?

    I don't really care either way about the latest news about porting Android over, i just don't see why it's on precentral.net

    Because it's being ported to a webOS tablet.

    Well it seems that you can brick your tablet if you attempt to install android onto it. Is it even worth it then? Is it an irrecoverable bricking?

    Don't install android yet - the current build is pre-alpha and more or less unusable.

    Wait on a proper cm release and enjoy without fear ;p.

    As for bricking, I seriously wouldn't worry about it. There's virtually nothing you can't fix with a trip to the webos doctor. I'm certain the "proper" release will be a fairly painless install, especially since some of the webos's top devs are collaborating on it.

    I have faith in these guys putting out an amazing product, simple as that.

    Just saw on rootzwiki, that the CM7 team have wifi almost completely finished. But they still need to do a lot of work on audio and video.

    It works. It boots and shows the screen. One thing is that you don't have hardware buttons mapped to the back, menu and home buttons, so, there's no way to go back from an app unless you run a command to go back.

    Also, there's no way to dual boot at the moment.

    Think of it just as a proof of concept instead of a full working installation.

    once WiFi and the market gets up and running, you can download an app that takes the hardware buttons and maps them to the touchpad. Sorta like honeycomb.

    Nope I'm with you. So far I like webOS although out of the box it does need tweaking.

    I did get the 32gb version so I'm open to a dual boot option but not sure if android will be for me.

    For myself I am not going to change if its android 2.3.

    Will wait for ICS at least and by then we may see android apps possible within webOS through an emulator if what I have read in several places that HP webOS team are working on it.

    To be honest I like webOS UI much more than android but it would be nice to have widgets on the screen as well.
