    then select the zip file, confirm, and install away.
    then reboot system and away you go.
    You can also just download the file directly to the TP then browse to the downloads folder in CWM and install from there. Saves having to hook up to a PC :-)

    OK guys read the new touchpad guide, got through all that. Read this guide twice and got started. I have CM9 working on my touchpad however when I get to step 4 I am clueless how to get in clockwork recovery. My only options are boot webos, boot cyanogenmod, boot webos recovery, reboot and shut down. I tried reinstalling clockwork via novacom and still the same thing. Help?

    "Step 4: WE NEED TO FIX A FEW THINGS!

    Ok, your touchpad is getting everything installed, but you're going to need to fix a few things before it will be as useful as you might like. When the touchpad finishes installing it's going to reboot into MOBOOT, a place that allows you to select which operating system you would like to use (webOS or cyanomod). You select between these by using the volume rocker, then hitting the home button to select. On your first boot-up you don't want EITHER of these options - you want to boot into CLOCKWORKMOD. Be ready when the touchpad begins to boot up, and immediately put it into clockworkmod.

    Now that you're in clockworkmod, you need to select "install zip from sdcard". You navigate this menu with your volume rocker and your home/power buttons. Simply use the volume rocker to go down to select install zip, and hit the home key to select.

    Select "choose zip from sdcard"."

    Sounds like you didn't install clockworkmod to begin with.

    My suggestion is start over from the beginning, and make sure you are placing all the files in their correct place, INCLUDING the clockworkmod file.

    Im still waiting for the Camera/microphone fix, thats the dealbreaker for CM9. My son Skypes w/ his grammy in FL and it actually works pretty good in CM7 so im not breaking that to run ICS.

    So I'm finally getting around to giving this Android installation a shot, so I'm quite new to this whole thing. Really, the most I've done with my Touchpad (or Palm Pre, whatever) is install apps through my computer.

    Well, here I am with a problem. I'm stuck at step 3, and all my Googling skills could not help me figure anything out. No matter what I do, I keep getting the message "The system cannot find the file specified."

    Things I've done so far:
    1) I've done the first way given in the instructions, to no effect.
    2) I moved the ACMEInstaller2 into the Palm, Inc directory, but it didn't work.
    3) Tried using novacom.exe instead, didn't do anything.
    4) Tried using the full "C:\\Program Files\Palm, Inc\novacom.exe" line, and that didn't work. I think there was a point where doing this stopped letting me do things in Command Prompt, and closing it made the Touchpad freeze with the HP logo.
    5) Reinstalled novacom, just in case. This is when attempt #4 stopped freezing the touchpad, and went back to giving me the "cannot find the file specified" thing.
    6) Restarted my computer a couple of times, as apparently that was a missing step for some people. Someone (I forgot where) said multiple restarts are necessary. I gave up after 3, maybe I should keep at it?

    I'm pretty sure I have everything installed that I need, like the Palm SDK and such, since they were listed in the instructions for installing novacom (HP Touchpad - RootzWiki). Everything else regarding CM9 is waiting in the Touchpad, so hopefully I'm not missing something.

    Most of the troubleshooting solutions were regarding the old ACMEInstaller where it was in a zip file, but it should be the same after that, right? Anyway, I'm at my limit trying to figure this out myself, so does anyone know what to do? I'm sure there has to be something I haven't done yet, or maybe I'm doing something wrong? Either way, much help is appreciated.

    "Tried using the full "C:\\Program Files\Palm, Inc\novacom.exe" line, and that didn't work. "

    It should be c:\Program Files\Palm, Inc\novacom boot mem:// <ACMEInstaller2
  10. #110  
    Well, yes, I did that. I just meant instead of only having "novacom" typed out I went for the full directory in the command.

    I was stuck on step 3 as well. Very frustrating! The CMD line drove me bonkers. After a bit of googling I found this on androidcentral:

    After placing your file in the Palm Directory,

    Go to your command line, and type in
    cd C:\Program Files\Palm, Inc

    so your command prompt looks like
    C:\Program Files\Palm, Inc>

    then you type in
    novacom boot mem:// < ACMEInstaller2


    Looks similar to the cmd line instructions(cd /Program Files/Palm, Inc) posted here, right? Well, after reading the android forum I noticed this person added a C: in the cmd line. Whatever the reason it worked and I was able to install android on my device.

    Funny thing. I was messing around with the OP's instructions in step 3 and I found that his cmd line "cd /Program Files/Palm, Inc" DOES work without the "C:", but ONLY if I change the slashes from forward to back...

    cd \Program Files\Palm, Inc

    Great topic. Ready to add CM9 to my wifes TP but like others I'm stuck at Step 3. Novacom not recognized. Tried the workarounds and nothing.

    I have no Palm, Inc folder anywhere on my XP machine. What files are suppose to be in there along with the ACMEInstaller file?

    Maybe this is my trouble. Can anyone tell me what I need to install on my machine to get the Novacom command to work?

    Thanks!

    Tha nks for the reply Aviator. Yes I did but now it doesn't recognize the cmd boot.

    All I have is ACMEInstaller2 in the folder. Is something else needed? Can't I just dbl-clk the file from windows explorer? Do I have to be at the command prompt?

    Thanks.

    i flashed the batteryalpha0 fix and i think thats what messed it up. any way to unflash a file?
  18. #118  
    I didn't mention it because I wasn't sure if it mattered, but I have tried what richeydog suggested. Including all the combinations of C: and \ or /, as well. None have worked, so did I not install novacom properly or something?

    @phosphatide

    try using wosqi's command line instead

    get it here: http://forums.webosnation.com/canuck...-v4-4-0-a.html

    the command line is under Tools/Linux Command Line

    extract ACMEInstaller2 to C:\Program Files\Palm, Inc

    cd C:\Program Files\Palm, Inc

    novacom.exe boot mem:// < ACMEInstaller2

    that is the right code to run

    if that doesn't work i recommend running the uninstaller and start from scratch
