    What is the practical difference for a user right at this moment?

    The first install is the hardest - after that, you simply load the zip file and flash it - then you either restore apps or often it's an in-place upgrade.

    As much as sagepipe's fix has greatly improved the stock app, I am REALLY happy to have ezpdf working on cyanogen. It was the first thing I loaded!

    Second was moboplayer, which also works great! I appreciate the effort, but it is miles better than kalemsoft and FREE!

    I tend to think so. ezPDF has some nice features. The most notible feature being text reflow, which can be really nice when trying to read some pdfs on a small phone/tablet screen. But I don't really use pdf enough to be too bothered one way or the other.

    Hi I tried to load Android on my touchpad and somehow I ended up with the black screen with the big white USB symbol on it. Is there an easy way to get out of that mode and start back from scratch?
    nice share... really appreciated.... :P ..
    anyway, this does make sense:

    I can report that Citrix seems to be working fine. I don't why Citrix is taking their sweet time with Citrix on WebOS. I got so tired of waiting for it. Now I can be productive anywhere I go with my TouchPad.

    Fixing it isn't entirely simple, but not too bad either. First, boot the touchpad while holding the volume up. Once the USB symbol is up, you need to plug the touchpad into the computer and go back to your command line.

    So in windows, hit start, and type into the "search programs and files" box:

    cmd

    Now you're at a dos prompt.

    Go to where you put your moboot file (the file unzipped from the moboot package you downloaded).

    In my case, I had to type:

    cd /users/home/desktop

    (I had my file unzipped on my desktop, this command changed my directory to my desktop).

    Once there, you type:

    novacom boot mem:// <uImage.moboot_0.3.3

    Now it'll pop up a boot menu on the touchpad, quickly use the volume up/down buttons to get into webos.

    Once in webos, load up executah and xterm, and utilize xterm to finish the install process for moboot:

    mount -o remount,rw /boot
    cd /boot
    cp /path/to/uImage.moboot_0.3.3 .

    (in the above line, you would put the path to your moboot 0.3.3 file, so if you moved it to your touchpad's /media/internal directory you'd type cd /media/internal/uImage.moboot_0.3.3 .

    Also note the period at the VERY end of that line IS necessary).
    Now you continue:

    rm uImage
    ln -s uImage.moboot_0.3.3 uImage
    ln -s uImage-2.6.35-palm-tenderloin uImage.webOS
    echo "webOS" >moboot.default
    sync

    Just like that, you have a boot menu and everything will work. NOW download the google marketplace .zip file, put it in your /media/internal, go to your file manager and tap on it inside android and it'll ask to go to clockwork to install. Say yes and you're DONE!

    You now have google marketplace in android AND a proper boot menu.

    There is NO need to wipe the touchpad at this point. Just do the steps above and you fixed your problem.

    Some apps that people might want to try -

    SwiftKey x tablet (excellent replacement keyboard)
    News republic tablet (good news app)

    And in case you missed it - evernote beta from their site.

    Great programs. Pulse Reader as well is one of the best.

    This is not a distinction that means ANYTHING AT ALL to a user.

    There is no difference between "Touchpad can't do PDFs right" and "There are no apps to do PDFs right".

    That's the problem isn't it?

    There are very few apps on the Touchpad.

    What apps do exist, are generally vastly inferior to their Android counterparts (much less iOS).

    Thanks for the tip - oh in case anyone (who is new to android) missed this tip earlier, in the settings for the stock browser, you can set a range of user agents including the ipad.

    Yes, apps are the main problem. As for PDFs, the TouchPad can do them perfectly fine, if you install an Ubuntu chroot via preware. But that is a very clunky and user unfriendly solution, so it is not a solution for the obvious problem.

    I am really looking forward to Android, I just don't know whether I want to risk it now or wait a bit. Maybe tomorrow, assuming there are no reports of exploding TouchPads :-)

    Dolphin Browser not compatible with this.

    Tried Medscape, Lastpass. They work.
