Yes it’s here the HP TouchPad newest release and it’s the third Alpha release of CyanogenMod 7 for the popular tablet that got sold off cheaply.
I have one of these so i take interest in what they have fixed and apparently the SOD( Sleep of death) has been fixed, general Wi-Fi fixes, and a whole host of other bits and pieces.
I haven’t tested it out yet, but i will be tomorrow evening. In the mean time check out below what Dalingrin himself posted on Rootzwiki.
SPECIAL NOTE: ALL DISCLAIMERS FROM ALPHA 1 APPLY TO THIS VERSION AS WELL SO BE SURE TO REVIEW THEM. THE USE OR ATTEMPTED USE OF ALPHA 3 MAY RESULT IN VERY BAD THINGS TO YOU, YOUR TOUCHPAD, YOUR DATA, YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, AND LOVED ONES. USE ALPHA 3 ENTIRELY AT YOUR OWN RISK!
You may install new updates using either ClockworkMod Recovery or ACME Installer. See below for more information.
(AKA things we hope we fixed)
* Last prominent form of "sleep of death" fixed
* Webkit backing store(smoother scrolling)
* Bluetooth DPad/arrows do not rotate with screen
* Battery stats now available to Android
* Serial# now populated
* Shorter hostname as a result of serial#
* General wifi fixes
* Preliminary Touchpad 4G support(no radio)
* Possible fix for A2DP and wifi interference
* Possible fix for SD card not mounting
* Camera FPS improved but still nearly nonfunctional
* 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

* 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.
Yours in endless love,
The CyanogenMod Team
As always beware and take caution as these are very early builds of course things can go wrong. The Aplha 3 version for the HP Touchpad can be found at Rootzwiki with all the instructions on installation now at this link below.
