We’ve all heard about the amazing bounty laid down for the person who can get Android running on the HP TouchPad. It sounds like some people are getting a lot closer. rhcp011235 and other members of the team working on the port of Android to HP’s TouchPad have now been successful in booting into Android’s recovery mode and ClockworkMOD recovery. The team has been kind of fragmented and not really working as a lean mean working machine, although it still appears the project is heading in the right direction. Chatter in the TouchDroid IRC channel indicates they are progressing nicely.
There is also the previously leaked Android System Dump for the HP TouchPad that some lucky users received on their Touchpad’s when they turned them on. So we know that Android was being tested by HP for this device and should be running once more on every HP TouchPad out there. Just give them time!
The latest update indicates that ADB is now running in webos and mini android as well as in ClockWorkMOD Recovery on the HP Touchpad, which is very important and takes them another step closer to full blown Android on the HP Touchpad.
rhcp011235 has posted a photo showing ClockworkMOD Recovery loading on his HP TouchPad (shown above) and another anonymous user shared a photo of ADB working in WebOS itself (shown below).
