CyanogenMod 7 Alpha 2 For HP TouchPad Released


While the world is still buzzing around the Galaxy Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwich, it is business as usual for the folks at CyanogenMod and they've just delivered the Alpha 2 version of the CM7 Custom Rom for the HP TouchPad which includes the following changes:

  • Plugging headphones in should now shut off speaker volume 
  • Battery drain issues have been (partially) addressed 
  • More apps now available in market (thanks to Flemmard) 
  • Temporarily removed suspect fsck_msdos to fix random folder deletion on media/sdcard. 
  • At least one type of "sleep of death" (TP won't wake up) has been fixed 
  • Wifi should no longer hang in sleep 
  • Vibrator no longer disappears 
  • Touchscreen no longer unresponsive after sleep 
  • cifs support added 
  • Touchstone should now charge better 
  • fixed broken links resulting from first version of installer (mount now works) 
  • pptp vpn now works 
  • OpenVPN TUN support added 
  • USB mounting in vold added 
  • Misc. fixes to ACME Installer (more graceful exits, nonstandard LVM media location handling, etc.) 
  • fixes to surfaceflinger to improve performance 
  • upstream cm7 changes added
  • Additionally, there is now an ACME UnInstaller for those who wish to remove the alpha completely. It should remove cm7 and reclaim the space back to the original media partition. Just as with the alpha itself, use the uninstaller at your own risk. Instructions for use are below.
