CM9 Developers to all HP TouchPad owners – Surprise!

Did I call it or what? In my post yesterday (Android for the HP TouchPad gets an update, getting closer to Netflix working) I speculated that they were closer to getting Netflix and other video related bugs fixed and today they did.

HP TouchPad users who have been using Android CM9 are now much closer to having a fully functional tablet almost equivalent to the Galaxy Tab (in function only).

The last major issues to be resolved now are mic and the camera, this would enable the use of Skype and other video conferencing apps.

Congrats guys, that was wicked fast.

Android for the HP TouchPad gets an update, getting closer to Netflix working

 

 

….but not yet.

 

 

Alpha 1 of CM9 was released with fixes for HD video (hardware video encoding) and better touch responsiveness, plus some rendering enhancements using the hardware’s 2D graphics core.

The big deal here is that HD video in YouTube no works.

The CyanogenMod 9 developers continue to pleasantly surprise us.
Keep up the good work guys! 

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on the HP TouchPad – CyanogenMod 9 Alpha 0.5 (bug fix)

The Cyanogen team does it again. I took the leap and installed this on my TouchPad and wow!!! This is wicked.

I went to Best Buy today to compare the performance on the TouchPad to that of other available devices. I left the store with a smile, the TouchPad even with the remaining bugs in this build, can compete with the most expensive Android 4.0 device. I cant wait till the Cyanogen team perfects this mod.

Today they published an update (actually a bundling of updates).

Alpha0.5 Release notes:
This is a minor release that bundles fixes that were previously a separate download and a few other things:

  • Fix kernel crash that happened most frequently with Titanium Backup but also many other apps(fix found by verygreen)
  • Touchscreen fixes by Dees_Troy(helps with rapid distinct touches being interporated as a single motion)
  • Fix graphics corruption that was happening in some games
  • CM9 changes from Flemmard
  • CMStats added
  • Browser: open link in incognito mode
  • Change needed for fsck replacement
  • Other general changes that were merged since alpha 0
