    Don't know about you guys but I'm loving Android on the Touchpad, only flaw for me is I cannot leave it in Android or else I'll have to long boot it (hold power menu key) I can run all my favorite apps including netflix, n64oid runs flawless and as well as other emulators. Not to mention having 26GB of storage :-). I would suggest using the SwiftKey keyboard app as well.

    Well I thought I was going to hate android too but after using it for a few days it's not that bad. Seems a little sluggish when browsing the net, and some of the UI seems messy to navigate. But its growing on me. I still prefer webOS at the moment.

    I too am having fun with themes.

    That appears to be incorrect, at least in my case. I installed Android, and needed to doctor for other reasons. Because I was curious about this, I did a full erase, and created a dummy profile with no data. It showed ~25GB free. Then, I used the 3.0.2 doctor, and logged back into that dummy profile. It then showed 27.3GB free. Seems to me that the 2GB partition was removed.

    Edit: Sorry, I was incorrect about this.

    Any idea what caused the 2GB difference after a doctor then?

    Or if you know any more definitive way for me to check, let me know.

    I have to apologize, I was incorrect. I was doing a little bit of research, and found that if I go to /dev/mapper, I can see: store-cm--cache, store-cm--data, and store-cm--system, which appear to be the cyanogen mod stuff.

    The linux install they're using does appear to have parted on there, so I might try and remove it from the command line later.

    If you figure it out let me know.

    Looks like How to remove the ext3fs partition should work probably.

    The only difference is that there are 3 different partitions created by Android, so you'd have to remove all of them, and then either meta-doctor or resizefat.

    I just did it with resizefat, and added 2GB to the size from the "df -kh" command, which was slightly rounded up (my calculating the sizes showed it to be 1.992GB). That being said, resizefat seems that it's smart enough to compensate for that, because it's doing the process now and is showing "New size reduced to maximum available"

    As an update, it looks like the media partition wasn't able to resize, despite the three partitions being removed.

    Maybe I'll try to run meta-doctor at some point, or wait and see if the CM7 guys eventually put up an uninstall procedure.

    Edit: Reading into it on the rootzwiki page, it appears that if you delete the partitions and THEN use any version of the doctor, then it'll resize the media partition to fill the space.

    I don't see why you want to take it off. It will be simple to update once they release them. If you want to use webos them simply boot to webos.

    I personally don't like Android all that much, was just doing it to see how well it worked, for curiosity really. It works surprisingly well, and while Android has improved since I last used it, I still don't like it all that much. I hope that ICS is even better, but it has a long way to go before I'd want to use it.

    On the other hand, that 2GB of space, that is something that I could really use, as I've got about half my storage filled up with apps, and the rest of what's left mostly full with music and videos.

    Hey OP, Microsoft released a developer version of Windows 8. Why not take this opportunity and upgrade your PC or laptop as well?

    JHOff, I was able to get the TouchPad to read an external SD card and also external disk drives plugged into the USB port with external power that I had lying around the house by purchasing a Motorola OTG cable from BestBuy. Not the easiest solution but I liked it better than bringing my laptop on the 10 day trip (and box.net was not an option because I was storing on the SD card and internet also was flaky)

    How to uninstall Android from Touchpad

    Those instructions are for Touchdroid though. While the commands for CM7 are similar, some of those partitions won't exist if you use CM7.

    Agree with the "messy UI" and just as sluggish as the touchpad browser. Get Opera Mini on it, though, and see how smooth and nice a mobile browser SHOULD be. I'm going to use the Android side entirely for development and game playing -- I'm an Unreal Engine developer, and there are Unreal games that work on and are being developed for Android. I'm hoping that I can get a studio to pay me to port the engine to Touchpad

    Yea I tried opera, but it wouldn't let me chose desktop version for webpages. Unless I totally missed it somehow.

    I actually don't mind the touchpad browser. After overclocking it runs fast enough for me. Much better than CM7 at the moment.
