    "Betreff: WG: CY8CTMA395 Android Drivers
    Anlagen: CY_I2CDRIVER_v11.zip

    Hi, xxx
    In fact before HP refreshing their webOS image, all HP touchpad TSP controller board were used Android to run the MFG procedure. Attached file is the latest TMA395 Android driver. The significant difference is that the HP touchpad TSP controller firmware has no bootloader support so when you want to bring up the device with this driver a little effort need be cost take care of this difference. This job has been done by HP software team before.

    Best regards
    Luther"

    That's not as surprising as it seems, the processor in the Touchpad was also used on a developer board ('dragonboard'???) that was used to try and sell it to other OEMs - I believe that ran android?

    I guess this is good news for the Android on Touchpad folk.

    This news, if true, merely indicates that 'the TouchPad was developed using individual parts of Android software while webOS 3, an almost complete rewrite, didn't have those specific parts yet so that hardware development could continue without having to wait for software development to catch up'.

    The title of this thread appears completely misleading and wrong.

    Plausible. I read somewhere that Rubi was never a fan of the TP hardware but was forced to shoehorn webOS into it regardless.

    Judging by a video I saw yesterday, The answer must be yes. In the video the developer board is running a customised 3D android interface with a shark swimming around in the background.

    I'll see if i can find it again and post the link.
