CyanogenMod working to get Android on the HP TouchPad

While this is still listed as being in early alpha and therefor not ready for public consumption, it does appear as if CyanogenMod has made some progress towards getting Android up and running on the HP TouchPad. According to the details which were posted along with the (below) video, this build is based on Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread and the “everything you see, except for bootie the bootloader (a great kid’s show btw), was compiled from source.”

Otherwise, at present they are not offering anything in terms of when we can expect this to be released for any and all to play with. More to the point, it seems there is still an issue with the touchscreen drivers which are said to now be the main focus of their attention. And looking forward, while some seem to want to replace webOS with Android entirely, it looks the the folks at CyanogenMod are looking to create a multiboot system.

“Our ultimate vision is to create a *multiboot* solution where the end user will be able to boot into WebOS, Cyanogenmod, and/or other OSes. This appears to be very possible, and we have discussed several potential implementations with our new friends in the WebOS development community to make it easy for an end-user to set up.”

That all being said, they are also looking for a few HP TouchPads that they can put to use by the team. In other words, if you have a TouchPad that you do not mind giving up for the cause, you may want to reach out, possibly using the RootzWiki link below.
