唔知道大家搶唔搶到 HP TouchPad 呢？我諗相信大部份既朋友都係搶唔到啦！不過大家仍然可以考慮在國外購回 HP TouchPad，因為在硬件上看，HP TouchPad 在 1.5k 的價格以下仍然有很大的吸引力的。
CM7 first boot on HP Touchpad
這次在 HP TouchPad 運行的 CM7 是使用上最新的 Android 2.3.5 內核，而且 CM7 的團隊表示未來在 HP TouchPad 上運行的 CyanogenMod 7 系統將可以選擇運行 Android 又或者是 webOS 系統，聽起來相當吸引呢！
不過，CM7 的團隊亦表示目前的測試版本相當前期，所以 CM7 for HP TouchPad 距離正式推出作有一大段距離。
Here is some (older) touchpad progress from Friday. The Cyanogenmod team wanted to share it with the public as a blatant publicity stunt to bring attention to our need for a few more touchpads (for developers currently working without them).
As you can see from this quick demo, we’ve been working hard and have made progress. Since this video was created last week, the build has been more “tabletized” (tablet tweaks added, etc.), lvm support has been added, and 2d hardware acceleration should appear very soon.
The touchscreen driver issue is now the focus of our attention.
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.
For the moment though, we need about 4 tablets, as we have talented and experienced developers who cannot contribute effectively due to a lack of hardware. If you have an extra touchpad and are willing to help the cause, please let us know in the comments below.
A BIG CAVEAT– PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR ETAS. For the uninitiated, this is the #1 rule for Cyanogenmod. It will certainly be a long while before our goals become reality. Our goals incidentally are not connected with any bounty– we are motivated to do it right, not do it fast.
And now the obligatory shout outs– Thanks to rootzwiki and all the devs and everyone else who are collaborating and contributing to this project. You know who you are, you.
The CM team
PS- Yes, this is gingerbread (Android 2.3.5). Everything you see, except for bootie the bootloader (a great kid’s show btw), was compiled from source.
