    Team Xron Android Custom ROM for HP TouchPad
    Under: Google Android, Tablet PC

    Team Xron Android Custom ROM for HP TouchPad » Phone Reviews

    The HP TouchPad tablet received Google Android thanks to the CyanogenMod team, and today a new Android custom ROM has been developed by Team Xron. This is a remix version of CM7 software, basically giving the tablet PC a new look.

    Team Xron has designed a new Android ROM for the HP TouchPad, that replaces some of the icons in CyanogenMod with versions designed that look a lot like Android 3.x Honeycomb icons.

    Or more correctly, in android terms, they have created a rom to do something that CM7 does natively via it's themes manager...

    What a waste of time - if anyone using CM7 wants this look, they can download the theme from the market and change to it in one click.

    A LOT of Android ROMs are basically nothing more than user-interface themes plastered on someone else's core work. Same thing happened when I had a Viewsonic G-Tablet. Some good legit non-CM7 ROMs came and went, but far too many of the kind you're reading about above.

    And users put up with having to reflash their whole device just to install a theme? Weird.

    Fortunately they typically flashed through Clockwork Recovery, so if you'd done a full system/app Titanium Backup sync'd to Dropbox prior, it was a "no harm, no foul" proposition to switch back to the prior pristine build. Still, many of those ROMs were just a waste of time and space, especially when those themes posing as genuine-effort ROMs were nothing of the sort.

    The only real "theme" based ROM that made any headway was the Norton Ink ROM which included many of the system apps along with the unique UI. Ran slow as hell, but an A for effort in keeping the visual fidelity.

    I think I had a dozen different ROMs available on my tablet by the time I sold it off for my Touchpad, mostly because I was lazy and didn't clean off the cruft.

    yes this is one huge disadvantage of android: you need to reflash a whole friggin rom every time to get some changes big and/or small. WebOS is sooo convenient in this and many many many other aspects! I like Gingerbread (finally official) android on my Epic but I LOVE WebOS on a tablet. Unlike Honeycomb, which to me seems so confusing and cluttered even compared to Gingerbread, WebOS is so nice and clean... and ugh just awesome

    BTW, that convenience is not a part of webOS itself, but the architecture of the homebrew packaging standards designed and deployed by WebOS Internals.

    It could be done on Android as well if anyone in that community took leadership and architected it for the convenience of the users rather than for the ability of such "devs" to take "l33t propz" for "Cooking ROMz".
