    This is a step by step by guide on how to install the Ubuntu Touch Preview on the TouchPad.

    Important Notes: This uses the base of CM10.1 as an install method which is currently being developed by the classic nerd team, and other developers thus it is highly unstable and experimental!!. I have had no random reboots or device wipes while installing this but it is important to remember that you must have clock work mod on your device already. This is a proof of concept only!!! Almost nothing works in terms of applications including apps and the wifi is very finiky.

    Here is the link for the Wiki with the updated builds !!! Thanks to patty land for the update.:

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Devices/tenderloin

    1. If your installing CM10.1 from here: ALPHA: Jellybean Android 4.2 for the HP TouchPad. or are using any other android build remember to [B]BACK up your data!!!

    2. Remember to also perform a factory reset from Moboot, it will only reformat the Android Partition and it will not effect your WebOS partition. When you install each file remember to boot it and install it from Clockwork Mod and you will lose the use of Android while this installed on your Touch Pad if you want Android back just remove the Ubuntu Touch preview and re install android. ALSO!! Remember that after you install each of the files to perform a Dalvik Cache Wipe and to Wipe Cache Partition.

    - (Also as a side note do not install this as you would Android through the terminal or command prompt just flash it through Moboot).

    2b. Problems: Keybored does not fit the screen size of the Touch Pad making very very difficult to type with. No sound, and Bluetooth. And finally it may reboot when you put it into standby mode.

    3. Here are the links to the what you need: Remember after each one you install to perform the cache wipes and remember that this is a dev preview so crashes and bugs may occur ad I am not responsible should anything happen to your device!! and Enjoy it to those brave few souls who may attempt this.

    havent tried myself yet, but does the firefox os simulator work with firefox on ubuntuchroot, would be easier for those already with a chrooted ubuntu.

    Well actually im not entirely sure, about that. I always managed to mess up the process of running Chroot. So I never went any farther than trying a Chromium OS (Lime) on the Touchpad.

    hmm i tried earlier, but the highest firefox i seem to be able to install is v16 and the simulator says its incompatible with such a low version.

    works ofc on my v19 on my regular desktop, just cant get a higher firefox on ubuntuchroot yet.

    There may just be hardware limitations on that though

    or just no released arm port yet, might have a manual search thru launchpad, see if it can find a v19+ armel deb file.

    EDIT: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source...buntu0.12.10.1

    yup, all processors catered too except armel atm.

    https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source...uild1-0ubuntu1

    v19 for ubuntu13.x has an armhf build, ill try updating my chrooted ubuntu back to 13x, i originally had issues with it, may work now, been a lot of updates already.
