    I just got my Touchpad (TP) and my dad's...he will pretty much keep his factory but I won't...

    I'm coming from using an iPad and very familiar with jailbreaking and iOS...

    Questions:

    1. I've heard about overclocking....how is this done? Quickest and easiest route.

    2. Is Preware a type of "jailbreak" and how do I get this. (using a Macbook)

    3. How do I get my photos from iPhoto on the TP?

    4. How do I get my music from iTunes to the TP?

    5. Anything else you great guys/gals can think of that I need to do to improve my touchpad performance.

    Thanks in advance.

    #2 is ur quickest route to #1.

    download webosquickinstall, install preware from there, and you can install overclocked kernels from preware. and not a jailbreak in the iOS sense of it. everything is pretty much reversible with webosDoctor.

    #3, #4 i pass

    #5, preware -> patches : theres a few in there for muffling system logging and things like that to increase performance

    #4 - Use either Media Monkey or HP Play to sync your music to your Touchpad. Both are free.

    HP play will sync your itunes library with all the metadata, etc. Not sure if mediamonkey will. HP play is beta but has been fairly stable in my use.

    3. How do I get my photos from iPhoto on the TP?

    Thanks in advance.
    Facebook: If you enter your facebook account into the touchpad, ALL of your facebook photos will sync to the TouchPad and show up in the photos app automagically.

    The photos have to be at least as big as 1024x1024 to be effective backgrounds. This is the best setting too.

    This should not happen. The first thing I would check is if the headphones are fully plugged. The connector actuates a switch in the jack.

    I have heard about some software issues where WebOS doesn't 'get the message.' I wonder if it's happening here.

    2. I think it will be much more difficult for you because the Macbook probably won't put the Touchpad in the charging state.

    3. Can you just drag them from iPhoto? If not, right click a picture in iPhoto and choose "View in folder" or something like that, then you can drag the pictures into the Touchpad (make sure the Touchpad is in USB mode)

    4. Same thing as 3, but with iTunes.

    Cool, I used a program called HP PLAY as suggested and that worked. I was able to get Preware ( the macbook did work pheww)...

    I will try the iPhoto thing now.

    HP Play question. Does it actually move your iTunes library/info, or simply sync/point to it? Eg. can I use iTunes (primary management for my iPhones, iPads, etc) as main music management system, and HP Play simply as a conduit to sync iTunes music to my webOS devices?
