    Touchplayer moved to it's own private feed for testing. You can find instructions for getting the new feed up and running here:

    There has been some remarkable work done on this project, I suggest checking out the post here for relevant reading:

    If that doesn't work, you've somehow borked up your kernel and need to do a full webOS doctor.
    yes I have to doctor

    Ok, now for a bit of housekeeping. The touchpad uses wifi to connect to the internet. It will do so on a wide range of routers, both G and N. That said, the touchpad will work remarkably faster if you utilize wep2. .....Check your security/encryption and ensure you have WPA2 selected.
    You state wep2 the first time then WPA2 the second time. Are these one in the same?

    I suggest googling how to enable UPNP on your particular brand of router and start there. Good luck!
    thanks, I found that my router does not support UPNP enabling, so I need to due further reading to find out what I can do.

    Thanks for catching this - it was a simple typo.

    You want WPA2 (eas encryption).

    WPA2 is hardware accelerated on the touchpad and does a massively better job at data transfer than any of the alternatives.

    I believe so. Don't believe HP did anything to remove them. Doesn't hurt to remove em either way, it's a quick and easy patch to install.

    First off, thanks for all the tips...what a great resource!

    So, I decided to be a little adventurous, and tried the ubuntu install listed in the first post. Things were going well until I got to this command:

    mkdir /media/ext3fs

    When I entered this command, I got an error that said that it is a read-only file system. I'm running 3.0.4, and am wondering if the update is the culprit? Any ideas?

    Also, I was unable to find the leftover file to delete in USB mode. It seems that I was able to fully remove it from the terminal.

    I am really keen to try out ubuntu on my tp, so if anyone knows how to get past this error, please let me know. Thanks!

    Root filesystem is mounted read-only by default, so if we need to make changes, we can remount it read-write for a short time while we run the command...

    mount -o remount,rw /
    mkdir /media/ext3fs
    mount -o remount,ro /

    Honest answers:

    First off, as of this post (10/23/2011) you would actually want the alpha 2 of cyanogen's CM7. The guide you posted was mentioning alpha 1, a very buggy early release.

    Second, alpha 2 is also fairly buggy. It's functional and with some tweaking it works beautifully, but it's still more of a proof of concept than a full release.

    My point here is, these are early alpha releases of android. They are full of bugs, prone to crashing, and require tweaking to run properly. If you're interested in android but more of a "casual" user, I'd HIGHLY recommend you wait on a beta version that is more stable before attempting to use this. For a casual user the difficulty associated with using the alpha CM7 builds outweighs the benefit IMHO (at least until we have a more complete and STABLE version - I'd guess that'll happen sometime in the next month or so).

    So, that's my answer. Unless you have a GOOD reason to run these alphas, wait on a more stable release.



    As for pros/cons etc...

    Pros:

    Android has a plethora of apps webOS will likely never have, for example, netflix. This huge app catalog makes the OS itself very capable and allows you to work in ways you cannot in webOS.

    Cons:

    CM7 for someone new to android is fairly non-intuitive (2 extra steps to do virtually anything) and webOS blows it away in casual use situations. CM7 is also very buggy right now without tweaking, which is a good reason to avoid it for the time being.


    As soon as a more complete and crash-proof beta is out, I recommend jumping in with both feet. It will live in harmony with a webOS installation (dual-boot) and does nothing but increase the usefulness of your touchpad. It's a net positive.


    Anyway, for now lets move the conversation back onto webOS .

    In addition to what the poster above me said, try doing a hard reset.

    Hold the power+home button for awhile. If that doesnt work, try power+home+volume up and down for awhile (like, 30 seconds-1 min).
