CyanogenMod 7 Progressing Nicely for the HP TouchPad


Yesterday came word that Team-Touchpad had delivered 10-point multitouch to their under-development Gingerbread ROM for the HP TouchPad, but we get the feeling the CyanogenMod 7 build currently in the works might steal its thunder. Ironically, the CyanogenMod team is claiming that the drivers used by the TouchDroid group were actually stolen from from an earlier build of CM7. Appropriately, multitouch is fully enabled in the latest TouchPad CM7 ROM along with hardware graphics acceleration. Still missing, however, is one rather important element: functional WiFi. The eventual plan is to work the hacked version of Android into an easily dual-bootable format along with the TouchPad’s native webOS. But don’t get too excited just yet, there is still much work to be done. A public build is not available at this time, but you can check out the above video to see how things are progressing.
