[ROM GUIDE] How to install Android 4.4.2 Data Media builds on the HP TouchPad
[ROM GUIDE]How to use the TouchPad Toolbox to install Android "The Super Easy Way"(Both DM and Non DM)

How to Flash Install Android 6.0.1/5.x.x/4.4x Builds on the HP TouchPad(Data Media)
Note(Important): If you have not installed Android before or are using a version older than 4.4.4(CM11), then start by using the Super Easy Way guide here. My guide will teach you everything you need to know about using Jcsullins TPtoolbox to install a variety of Android 5.x.x/4.4x(CM12.1/CM11) Roms. The TPtoolbox is a dynamic tool and gives us the option to remove, restore or keep the tablets original OS WebOS. The guide on this page will instruct you in updating and installing Roms by flashing them through recovery. This is how you can install and update the latest Evervolv nightly Marshmallow 6.0.1 builds.

How can I check my current Android version and System Partition size?
-Get the free app,Quick System Info PRO, to check the size of your partitions and remaining free space.
-Check your version of Android by going to settings/About Tablet/Android Version.

How to make a Nandroid backup:
I highly recommend you make a Nandroid backup after installing and setting up Android on your HP TouchPad. This perfectly preserves your current configuration and can easily be restored through CWM, Philz CWM, or TWRP Recovery.

Click here to watch the How to make a Nandroid backup Video:

Clean install:
"Clean installing" a Rom means you format 3 basic partitions, system, data and cache before flashing the Rom and gapps package. This erases all user data and ensures a smooth install.
When updating your version of Android its recommended to do a clean install. You can do this by either using TPtoolbox to install android with your chosen files placed in the ttinstall folder or by flashing the Rom and Gapps package directly using your recovery (CWM, Philz CWM, or TWRP).

How to do a clean install with the TPtoolbox:
After installing a data media Rom you can do a clean install of another Rom listed in the guide by again using the TPtoolbox. Return to step 5 :cool: and install a different Rom. The TPtoolbox will wipe the system, data and cache partitions/volumes and do a clean install, WebOS will not be changed. Your apps and user data will be lost but your media content on the SDcard1 remains the same. If you wish to completely remove WebOS, Android and all data on the device return to step 5 A) and do a complete data reset.

How to do a clean install from Recovery:
Reboot into recovery (CWM, Philz CWM, or TWRP) to Format/Wipe the system data and the cache partitions. You will find a full step by step instructional video below. First choose an Android 4.4.x or 5.0.x Rom and Gapps package from the detailed guide. Next transfer the two .zip files to your Android device with the USB or directly download them. Watch the how to update video below for step by step instructions. Note that you must have the correct Gapps package for your version of Android or you may experience errors or missing apps like the Play Store.

Clean install Step Summary:
-Reboot in recovery
-Select "Wipe Data/Factory Reset", choose "Yes delete all user data"(CWM) or "Clean install a New Rom"(Philz CWM)
-Select "Install Zip", "Choose zip from /sdcard", Locate and select your ROM, then choose "yes install CM-XX-"
-Select "Install Zip", "Choose zip from /sdcard", Locate and select your Gapps package, then choose "yes install gapps-xx-"
-Once complete select "Reboot system Now" to reboot into android.

How to Clean Install Android from CWM recovery Video


How to clean Install Android from Philz CWM recovery Video


Note(Optional): After a clean install you can attempt to use CWM, Philz CWM, or TWRP recovery to advanced restore the data Partition from a backup. This will restore your Android apps and users data but could cause errors, so its considered an optional step. Click here to learn how to do an advanced restore after a clean install with CWM:

Clean install Step Summary with Advanced restore:
-Reboot in recovery
-Select "Wipe Cache Partition", choose "Yes - Wipe Cache"
-Select "Advanced", choose "Wipe Dalvik Cache", "Yes - Wipe Dalvik Cache"
-Select "Install Zip", "Choose zip from /sdcard", Locate and select your ROM, then choose "yes install CM- XX-"
-Select "Backup and Restore", "Custom Restore from /sdcard", Restore just the data partition "Start Custom Restore Job"
-Once complete select "Reboot system Now" to reboot into android.

Dirty Flash:
"Dirty Flashing" a Rom involves formatting the system & cache partitions before the install. This preserves your user data and setup, all your apps and system layout will remain the same. However dirty flashing incompatible Roms could cause boot loops or errors, if this happens you'll need to do a clean install or restore a Nandroid backup(See Troubleshooting section).

-Dirty flash installs are only recommended when updating the same or similar Rom. If nightly builds are available, updating in this manner would be acceptable. Going from one CM11 nightly Rom to another is generally recommended but if you wish to change your type of Rom or version of Android a clean install would be best to avoid issues. Download your selected Rom and gapps zips and flash them through your chosen recovery. Don't forget to wipe your caches.

Dirty Flash install Step Summary:
-Reboot in recovery
-Select "Wipe Cache Partition", choose "Yes - Wipe Cache"
-Select "Advanced", choose "Wipe Dalvik Cache", "Yes - Wipe Dalvik Cache"
-Select "Install Zip", "Choose zip from /sdcard", Locate and select your ROM, then choose "yes install CM- XX-"
-Once complete select "Reboot system Now" to reboot into android.

Rom Guide and Videos:
Select One of each, Rom and Gapps .zip files to download and install from CWM, Philz CWM or TWRP recovery:
Or
Select One of each, Rom, Recovery, Gapps, .zip files to download and install with the TPtoolbox:
-Scroll down to see the supported Rom, Gapps and Recovery files available for the HP Touchpad.
-Each Rom requires a corresponding Gapps package for its version of Android. 4.4.x Roms need 4.4 Gapps, or 5.0.x. Roms need 5.0 Gapps.
-Each Rom has notes about its details and a rating for the battery drain during deep sleep.
-Three recovery types are available to choose from; each does the same tasks but the interface is different, CWM, Philz CWM, TWRP.
-I prefer the Philz CWM but its personal preference, unless otherwise specified.
-Check the Rom Developers thread for their recommended Recovery file downloads.

Which Rom should I choose?
-Currently the Android 4.4.x Kitkat Roms are the most mature, stable and fully functional. I would recommend them as your daily driver.
-Android 5.x.x Lollipop Roms are in developmental but aren't as fully functional as 4.4.x Roms. The battery life is shorter, the camera is currently broken and Bluetooth is less stable.
-The latest Android 5.1.x Lollipop Roms roms and/or gapps packages may not be fully compatible with the current TPtoobox version42 and may need to be installed by flashing through recovery using Flintmans TWRP.
-It takes several months after the initial release of a new android version for it to become mature and stable. Please see the developers threads for the latest details about their Roms, Happy Flashing.

Troubleshooting:
Notes, Fixes and Tweaks(Important):
Note:The following are Solutions for the most Frequently asked questions and problems.
1)1)If the WiFi turns off in Sleep/suspend mode while set to on, then uncheck WiFi optimization.

Note:Turning off "WiFi optimization" might help to improve WiFi functionality.

note:Turning WiFi off during sleep saves extra battery life.
-Settings/WiFi/3 Dots/Advanced/WiFi optimization (uncheck)
-In Shumash's Schizoid build you can find it @ RomControl/General

2)If the HP TouchPad isn't charging do the following. If MTP is already checked,then uncheck and recheck the option.
-To Enable MTP mode, Go to settings/storage, look for the three dots in the upper right hand corner of the screen, tap computer connection, make sure there is a check next to MTP.
-This will enable the TouchPad to transfer files and charge using the USB cable.

3)If your Touchpad skips moboot and boots right into Android, then do the following:
-Hold the home key while booting to force moboot to display the Menu.
-To fix this problem use a Rooted File explorer, like X-plore, to delete the moboot.next file located @ Root/Boot/
-This problem is often caused by using the CyBoot app in WebOS.

4)Turning off "network location services" might help to improve overall battery drain and longevity.
-Settings/location access/ access to my location set to off
-You may wish to monitor your battery drain history during sleep.
-Install the the free app Battery Monitor Widget:
-To setup the Battery Calibration correctly for the HP TouchPad,
-go to BMW settings/calibration/Battery capacity/ and set it to either 6300 (F29C) or 5800 (S29C) and tap OK
-Note* See the Battery p/n # on the original packaging.
Or
You can also use Cool-Tools to monitor your battery drain in real time.
-Watch the instructional video Here.
Note:Flashing the A6 firmware will ensure your battery has a long healthy life.

5)You can enable additional reboot options like recovery by enabling Developer options.
-Go to Settings/About Tablet/ Tap on "Build number" 7 times.
-A new menu will appear in the Settings/About Tablet/Developer options/ tab on the left.
-Check "Advanced reboot" to get the Recovery/Boot loader options.

6) When installing Roms and .zips with the ACMEInstaller, you may need to add "update-" to the beginning of the file names or they won't flash correctly. Like so "update-cm-10-20131019-UNOFFICIAL-tenderloin.zip"

7)If Moboot is displaying multiple Rom or recovery names that you are not currently using, then do the following.
-With a rooted File explorer go to root/boot/ and delete the unwanted uImage.( X) file to remove the entry from Moboot.
-Here you can also change the default boot option by editing the moboot.default as text.
-Also you can change the default recovery option by editing android.default.recovery

8)If you are unable to find the Play Store after you install CyanogenMod, then you will need to reflash your gapps package. Click Here for the how to video!

9)If you are unable to find the camera app install this Nexus 7 Camera Launcher:
-This will also make the camera preview full screen.

10)Use this free app "4.2 Multiple User Enabler Root" to enable multi-user functionality.
-You can also use the terminal emulator to enable it too, see VFF instructions here.

Bricking, Boot Loop, Help & Fixes(Important):

If your HP TouchPad is stuck in a boot loop or not responding:
-Hold down the Power and Home buttons together for 30sec to force the TouchPad to Reboot.
-Hold down the Power button and click the Home key 14 times.

-If you're stuck in a boot loop restore a back or do a fresh install, U4-UuzlFgGs[/MEDIA]]Click here for a how to Video:

-Dirty flashing older builds (CM9/CM10) over newer builds (CM10.1/CM10.2) will result in Boot loops.

-If this happens use your backup or do a fresh install, U4-UuzlFgGs[/MEDIA]]Click here for a how to Video:
-Doing an install with ACMEInstaller can sometimes result in a boot loop. Use a backup or flash the Rom and Gapps package through CWM or TWRP.

If your TouchPad seems bricked and won't turn on:
-If your battery has been fully drained, then you may need to leave it charging for a full day.
-When the battery is fully drained it can take the TouchPad a longtime to reach even the lowest battery level.
-The USB cable does not transfer enough power to effectively charge the tablet. You must use the wall plug when charging the HP TouchPad.

-After charging the HP TouchPad for a full day try holding down, home + power + volume down for 30+ seconds.

-If the tablet does not turn on after the previous steps it may be bricked and you will need to run the TPDebrick procedure found in the thread below:

Developer Jcsullins has posted a thread "TPDebrick v0.4" dedicated to helping people with bricked HP TouchPads(Important):
Note* All debricking questions should be posted here!

-Warning: Certain TouchPads can become "Bricked" if you let the battery drain to zero.
-Installing one of these free apps could solve the problem and save you time.
-AutomateIt, Play Store Link- What to do: New Rule/Trigger Battery level(Below 20%)/Action/Shutdown//save.
Or
-Llama, PLay Store Link- Location Profiles:Event tab choose + (at the bottom of the screen) Add condition (battery Level Below 20%) Actions (turn off phone)

If you ran the WebOS doctor but it got stuck at 8-12% follow the instructions in the threads below:

How and when to Use the WebOS Doctor (Important):

Q: What's the WebOS Doctor and when should I use it?

Click Here to Watch the WebOS Doctor Instructional video:

The WebOS Doctor is a program that has two main functions for HP TouchPad users. It can either update your version of WebOS or fix problems with a damaged WebOS by completely reinstalling it. If WebOS no longer boots or apps and preware have stopped working correctly, then you will need to resinstall WebOS with the Doctor. A failed or interrupted attempt at changing the partition sizes with WebOS preware app Tailor may cause these problems. To check what version of WebOS is currently installed go to Launcher(Up Arrow)/Settings/Device Info/ Version

Note(Important): You MUST uninstall Android before running the WebOS doctor. Failing to remove Android before running the Doctor can result in the process becoming stuck at 8-12% and potentially bricking the device. If you are currently stuck visit the thread below for information about fixing the problem. If you're unable to use the tablet at all follow the instructions in Jcsullins TPDebrick thread.

The Official Fix your TouchPad ( 8-12% stopped, No SD, Opps reformat, $&^#[email protected]&# crap....) thread.(Rootzwiki)

The Official Fix your TouchPad ( 8-12% stopped, No SD, Opps reformat, $&^#[email protected]&# crap....) thread.(CM)

TPDebrick v004 - Jcsullins dedicated thread for fixing Bricked TouchPads:

Note(Important): Running the Doctor will completely wipe all personal information, applications and preware from the TouchPad. Media like music and movies will not be affected. However I would recommend backing your important files to PC, before running the Doctor.

Note(Important): In order to install apps from the WebOS store you will need to get the Root Certificate fix for WebOS cloud services.

HP TouchPad Battery Drain issues during sleep (Important):

Full step by step A6 Firmware Flashing instructions and Info here!
The Problem:
Developer James Sullins, Aka Jcsullins, has informed HP TouchPads users that there is a problem with our tablets A6 Firmware. This issue can cause an usually high battery drain during sleep. This problem occurs overtime while running both CyanogeMod and WebOS, on the HP TouchPad. As a results the Touchpads battery drains more quickly with daily use and the overall life span is reduced.

The Solution:
Reflashing the A6 Firmware effectively fixes the problem but may need to be repeated as a part of regular HP TouchPad maintenance. Watch this video and follow the step by step instructions to reflash your own Touchpads A6 Firmware.

SDcard Fixes and Internal App Storage Increase(Important):

All these fixes can be found in the following thread below by Jcsullins:
Fixes for SDCARD issues for all versions of CyanogenMod

Removed SDcard Error Message:
"Removed SD card
SD card removed. Insert a new one.

If so, that (most likely) means that you have encountered the
50+ issue. To fix it, you will need to move apps back from
the 'sdcard' to the 'Internal storage' (or 'phone').

The next fix/workaround allows you to 'stash' some of the apps
on the 'sdcard' so that the 50+ issue does not come into play.
This will allow you to move apps back from the 'sdcard' without
encountering the "Removed SD card" error while attempting to do so.
Each time you apply this 'fix', it will 'stash' all but 40 of
the apps on the 'sdcard'.

So, apply this fix once. Then move apps back from the 'sdcard' to
the 'phone' (or 'Internal storage'). Note that apps that have been
'stashed' might show with a greyed-out icon with an 'SD Card' symbol
and the letters 'SD' -- do not attempt to move these. After you
have moved the apps from the 'sdcard' back to 'phone' (those that
haven't been 'stashed'), you apply the fix again. Applying the
fix the second time will 'unstash' the remaining apps (remember
that it will not allow more than 40 apps to be 'unstashed') thus
allowing you to move them off the 'sdcard' too.

Get it here: http://www.mediafire...4n3fhag1d33127q
Apply with your favorite recovery software."Jcsullins Quote


How to Increase the 'Internal space' for Additional App Storage:
You can increase the size of your 'Internal space' (or /data)
in increments of 256MB, 512MB, 1024MB and 2048MB. You apply
these 'fixes' with recovery software (tested with CWM and TWRP),
however, please note the warnings below.

********** PLEASE READ ALL WARNINGS BELOW **********

********** PLEASE READ ALL WARNINGS BELOW **********
********** PLEASE READ ALL WARNINGS BELOW **********

WARNINGS:

1) BACKUPS. BACKUPS. BACKUPS. As always, and especially when you
are resizing filesystems, you should have backups. This means
backups of all data (that you would care about losing) on the
Touchpad. These backups should be stored off of the Touchpad.

2) Before attempting to resize your 'Internal space' make sure
you have enough free space on your 'sdcard' to do so. Check
this from Settings/Storage/SD card/Available Space. You should
have enough space plus a very healthy 'safety margin'.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TAKE ALL (OR CLOSE) AVAILABLE SPACE FROM SDCARD.

3) Before applying this 'fix', make sure you have plenty of charge
on your battery.

4) Do not reboot, reset or otherwise interrupt the touchpad while
applying this 'fix'.

5) As soon as this 'fix' is complete, use the recovery software's
reboot command to reboot the system. Do not do anything else
in recovery after applying this 'fix'. This 'fix' does things
that recovery software are not designed to do and does not
expect to happen. REBOOT IMMEDIATELY AFTER APPLYING FIX.
Jcsullins Quote

Removing System Apps(Optional):
If System apps are displaying error messages or working incorrectly you can use a free app to remove them. In some cases you may wish to uninstall apps from your system and reinstall them as regular apps such as Google+ and Chat.
Note: The device must be rooted

Sdx Stock App Removal Thread:
Sdx Stock App Removal Download:

Warning! Please take care removing apps. If it's an app that the system needs, it will be removed and can cause the phone to boot loop or worse? We do not take responsibility for your choice to install this and remove anything. PLEASE USE CARE!

Data media Q & A:

What is a data media build?

Previously on the HP Touchpad Android and WebOS shared SDcard space in the media partition. This was the space you saw when transferring data via the USB cable. It stored all your media like music, pictures and movies. Data media builds separate the Android and WebOS space by emulating a 2nd ext4 SDcard in the data partition. The place where your app data was stored, separate from the SDcard media partition. You will need to move the majority of your free space from the media partition to the data partition, by using flashable zips, Tailor or android apps. With this setup the data partition now becomes the main place where your apps and users files(Music, pictures, movies, ect) are stored. The left over space in the media partition is now separate and only used by WebOS. WebOS will be left with just a small amount of free space and the majority will be given to the Android Data partition. You will need to boot into WebOS to access its media SDcard space or use the Evervolv build which allows you to see both partitions from Android. Following these instructions will leave WebOS perfectly intact and it can be used for useful things like flashing the A6firmware [Fix Guide] How to Reflash the A6 Firmware.

What are the Advantages and Changes for Data Media Builds?

New data media builds change the default partition layout to more efficiently use the available space. You get a larger area for storing apps and mount an emulated ext4 SDcard on the Data partition. The ext4 doesn't suffer from the 4GB file size limit that the older Fat partition had and gives you more space for large apps. "Performance on ext4 in Android is also probably better than FAT." The next advantage for HP TouchPad users is the updated 3.x Kernels all the new Android 4.4.2 builds use. The updated Kernel's more efficiently communicates and allocates resources between the hardware and software. However data media Roms require newer data media recoveries to accommodate the new partition format and selinux support.

What is a data media device?(TeamWin)

Do I really need to do all this, how can I go back to my old setup?

If you're happy with your current setup and Android version there is no urgent need to upgrade. However this is the direction that future builds will take and if you understand the basic concepts of flashing rom's and have previously installed android with the ACMEInstaller, then you should be ready to test these new builds. Experienced users should backup all their data before trying out these new builds. If you wish to go back to your previous setup you can use the new Jcsullins and Philz Touch DM-CWM recoveries to restore your older nandroid backups. Jcsullins and Philz DM-CWM recoveries can see both SDcards while restoring your backups. The Data partition will show up as SDcard and the Media Partition as SDcard1. When restoring a backup it would be best to uninstall android install just moboot and CWM then restore your backup. Note that due to the larger size of data media, backups you cannot advanced restore the data partition of a data media back up on a non data media rom. Please leave our talented developers some feedback in their respective threads. Reporting problems in the developer's threads and submitting alogcats can help to move development along and fix bugs.

[ROM GUIDE] How to Update/Install Android 4.2, 4.3 and 4.4 Builds on the HP TouchPad

How to check your Android version and System Partition size:

-Get the free app,Quick System Info PRO, to check the size of your partitions and remaining free space.

-Check your version of Android by going to settings/About Tablet/Android Version.

1)Uninstall Android and Clean up your SDcard:

A]Uninstall Android completely by using the ACMEUinstaller2, watch the instructional video here: Next you will need to cleanup your SDcard before we can change our partition sizes. After uninstalling Android you will automatically reboot to WebOS.

Note: I would highly recommend making a backup and transferring it to your PC before removing Android. If you decide to go back to your old setup this will make things easier.

B]Now from WebOS you must clear enough free space on the media partition in order to add that space to the data partition. You can do this quickly and easily by wiping all your SDcard data from the rest options in WebOS. You could also manually delete files to clear up the space but wiping all your data is highly recommend and ensures that the flashable zips will work correctly in step # 3. If you encounter errors or issues during the install process be sure to redo this step.

Completely wipe your SDcard by booting into WebOS and going to, settings/device info/reset options/erase USB drive. The Touchpad will then reboot itself and the data will be erased. Note:This will not affect your WebOS setup, apps or Preware and is highly recommended.

Product Personal computer Font Computer Communication Device


Note(Important): Backup, Backup, Backup, This will delete absolutely everything on your SDcard so make sure you have your personal data files backed up on your computer. Don't forget to move your Nandroid backups onto your PC. By default CWM backups are located in SDcard/clockworkmod/backup/

2)Run the ACMEInstaller5, Install CWM and Moboot:

Now its time to install moboot, CWM and set your system partition to 600MB by running the ACMEInstaller5. Download CWM and Moboot then place the zipped files into the cminstall folder on your HP TouchPad. Reboot the device into WebOS recovery mode and run the ACMEInstaller5 from your PC. Watch the full instructional video here if you're unfamillar with the process but only use the files provided here for installing data media builds.

(Optional) Download Philz+Jcsullins Touch Interface DM-CWM and Moboot:

A]Download PhilZ_CWM-jcs-dm-tenderloin-20140317.zip

Note: Jcsullins has modified Philz touch recovery to support the HP Touchpad. Philz is a touch interface version of the DM-CWM that still works the same as non-touch based recoveries. Both SDcards are accessible plus you can still use the volume and home buttons to navigate and select options if desired. Philz touch also supports TWRP backup formats, so TWRP users making the switch can still restore their backups. Scroll down in the menu and select TWRP mode to switch to TWRP formats.

3)Switching the majority of your free space from Media to Data:

With the basic partition layout setup(System Partition=600MB), recovery and Moboot installed, we can now move your free SDcard space from the Media partition to the Data partition. Here are a few different methods that we can accomplish this with, the Flashable zips are recommended.

Recommended Data Media setup:

Before Data Media setup
system = 600MB
cache = 200MB
media (16GB TouchPads) = 11.5GB

media (32GB TouchPads) = 28GB
data = 1.5GB

After Data Media setup
system = 600MB
cache = 200MB
media = 400MB-2.8GB ** (depends on methods, 3GB recommended)
data = (16GB TouchPads) = 11.5GB

data = (32GB TouchPads) = 24.5GB

A] Flashable zips(Recommended): Advanced users Gradular and The Ape have both created zips you can flash through recovery that can make the partition changes quick and easy. Download the desired .zips either directly to your TouchPad or to your PC and then transfer them to the Touchpad with the USB cable. There are several flashable zips available but you must choose one that best accommodates your TouchPad model 16GB or 32GB. It's recommended to use the largest possible zips for your TouchPad model, a 32GB TouchPad could use this 24576 zip and 16GB HP Touchpad would use this 10752-0.1.zip. Flashing these zips will leave about 2.8GB of space on the Media partition for WebOS and move the majority of space to the Data partition for Android apps and file storage. If you use WebOS often, then you might wish to leave more space on the media partition.

Note: Before changing your partition size you must have enough free space on the media partition in order to add that space to the data partition. If the zips fail to flash make sure that you have previously wiped your USB drive via the instructions in step #1

B] Tailor: The WebOS Preware app Tailor can be used to make the necessary partition changes. This method also works well but can take longer to setup and complete. Note: Make sure your HP Touchpad is fully charged before making changes with tailor. Checking the file system and resizing the partition can take some time, so be patient. If you get an error during the file system check, run it again. Do Not restart or shutdown the device until it completes. Read all about using tailor by watching my video and reading the OP in Gradular's thread below.

Note(Important):If you have accidentally interrupt tailor you may need to run the WebOS Doctor, See the Troubleshooting section Video Here:

How to guide for changing your system, data, and cache partition sizes to whatever you want.by Gradular

Click Here to watch the Full how to use Tailor video

C] Android Partition changing apps: There are a number of apps in the Play Store that could help you change the partitions sizes. However the success rate of using these apps is questionable and some require you to get a paid version. If you wish to try using apps make sure you have a full backup before proceeding. A Parted ( Sd card Partition ) Android Partition Manager Pro

4)How to Install Android 4.4.2 Data Media Builds:

Now its time to install android by flashing the rom and gapps package through recovery. If you've chosen to use the flashable zips to change your partition size, then do that first and reboot before flashing the rom and gapps package. Consult the Android 4.4.2 guide below and download anyone of the 5 available Data Media roms by visiting their corresponding threads. Just below the roms you will find the available 4.4.x gapps packages. Download your selected Android 4.4.2 rom, and 4.4.x gapps package directly to the tablet or transfer these files over to the Touchpad with the USB cable from your PC. Once the files are located on the tablet you can flash them through recovery to complete the install. Refer to the full video to see the step by step flashing process with both Jcsullins DM-CWM @ 18:00 and Philz-DM-CWM @ 20:25.

Note(Important)When flashing files from Jcsullins or Philz DM-CWM you will be able to choose between installing zips from both SDcards. The Data partition will show up as SDcard and the Media Partition as SDcard1.

Philz+JcsullinsTouch Interface DM-CWM(Optional):

Download PhilZ_CWM-jcs-dm-tenderloin-20140317.zip

Note: Jcsullins has modified Philz touch recovery to support the HP Touchpad. Philz is a touch interface version of the DM-CWM that still works the same as non-touch based recoveries. You can still use the volume and home button to navigate and select options if desired. Philz touch also supports TWRP backup formats, so TWRP user making the switch can still restore their backups.

DM-TWRP(Optional): If you'd prefer to use TWRP then you can get Jcsullin DM-TWRP below. Flash the DM-TWRP.zip through your current CWM recovery to install it.

Notes about using Data Media recoveries to update and backup Roms(Important):

A QUICK NOTE ABOUT CLEAN VS DIRTY INSTALLS VIA RECOVERY:
The safest way to do a FULL "Clean" install from a currently installed recovery without carrying over any stuff from prior installations is to do the following from the custom recovery:

1 ) Perform a factory/data reset.
This will format the /data partition (user apps and settings) and /cache partition (temporary app & system files).
** On data/media recoveries like TWRP, this should safely delete all files except the emulated /data/media/sdcard. Good. **

Note: If you manually format /data on a data/media build vs. a factory reset, it will wipe the emulated sdcard as well!

2 ) Under mounts and storage, format the /system partition
(this is where the ROM actually is)
** Most CM Rom's install scripts have a command to perform the format for you when flashing but not all ROMs do it.**

3 ) Flash ROM and gapps as needed.

4 ) Reboot.

For a 'Dirty' Install to keep you user apps & settings within the same ROM series:
(If you experience issues you may have to do a clean install)

1 ) wipe/format cache partition.

2 ) wipe/format system partition
** (Again, some ROMs may do this for you when installed)

3 ) Flash ROM and gapps as needed.

4 ) Reboot

Troubleshooting:
Notes, Fixes and Tweaks(Important):
Note:The following are Solutions for the most Frequently asked questions and problems.
1)Add flash Support for Android:

[Video]How to Install the Adobe Flash Player on Any Android Device 2.3-4.4

Note: Official flash support for Android was removed after CM9(Android 4.0.2).

-You can add support back by installing the Flash apk file and using a supported Web Browser.

-To use flash and nexfix without having to add support it's recommend to use CM9.

-To add flash support for CM11, Android 4.4.2, get the hacked Adobe Flash player 11.1 here and use it with the Dolphin Browser here, plus the dolphin Jetpack Plugin here.

-Enable flash in the Dolphin browser by going to settings/web content/ and set the flash player to on demand or always on.

2)Add Support for Netfix with Newer versions of Android CM10-CM11:

[XDA Thread]Run current Netflix on CM10 & 11 Xposed Framework module

3)If your tablet repeatedly doesn't wake up from sleep and has to be rebooted, then do the following :

-Google Settings\Search & Now\Voice\"Ok Google" Hotword detection\ Toggle the switch to off and see if that helps.

Note: This can also help to reduce high battery drain during sleep.

4)If your tablet boots into WebOS by default, then do the following to make it boot in Android:

-Download Jcsullins update-boot-cm-default.zip

-Flash the zip file through any recovery to make android boot by default.

5)If your Touchpad skips moboot and boots right into Android, then do the following:
-Hold the home key while booting to force moboot to display the Menu.
-To fix this problem use a Rooted File explorer, like X-plore, to delete the moboot.next file located @ Root/Boot/
-This problem is often caused by using the CyBoot app in WebOS.

-If moboot is missing completely place the moboot .zip file into the cminstall folder on the HP TP and run the ACMEInstaller.

6)If Moboot is displaying multiple Rom or recovery names that you are not currently using, then do the following.

-With a rooted File explorer go to root/boot/ and delete the unwanted uImage.( X) file to remove the entry from Moboot.
-Here you can also change the default boot option by editing the moboot.default as text.
-Also you can change the default recovery option by editing android.default.recovery

7)If Google maps doesn't display your location while using CM11, Android 4.4.2, then install this older app package.

-Go to this thread [APP]install Google Maps 6 and 7 and use them together[Root/NoRoot]

-Download and install the 6.14.4 Google map apk package and disable automatic updates.

8)Battery saving Tips

A)Turning off "network location services" might help to improve overall battery drain and longevity.

-Settings/location access/ access to my location set to off
-You may wish to monitor your battery drain history during sleep.
-Install the the free app Battery Monitor Widget:
-To setup the Battery Calibration correctly for the HP TouchPad,
-go to BMW settings/calibration/Battery capacity/ and set it to either 6300 (F29C) or 5800 (S29C) and tap OK
-Note* See the Battery p/n # on the original packaging.
Or
You can also use Cool-Tools to monitor your battery drain in real time.
-Watch the instructional video Here.

Note:Flashing the A6 firmware will ensure your battery has a long healthy life.

B)Reducing the screen brightness can result in big savings on battery life:

-By installing a free app called RootDim you can lock the brightness at lower levels than android normally allows.

Click Here to watch the How to use RootDim video:

Click Here for the Play Store link to the Root Dim app:

C)Removing adds to improve battery life and browser speed:

Bricking, Boot Loop, Help & Fixes(Important):

If your HP TouchPad is stuck in a boot loop or not responding:
-Hold down the Power and Home buttons together for 30sec to force the TouchPad to Reboot.
-Hold down the Power button and click the Home key 14 times.

-If you're stuck in a boot loop restore a back or do a fresh install, Click here for a how to Video:

-Dirty flashing older builds (CM9/CM10) over newer builds (CM10.1/CM10.2) will result in Boot loops.

-If this happens use your backup or do a fresh install, Click here for a how to Video:
-Doing an install with ACMEInstaller can sometimes result in a boot loop. Use a backup or flash the Rom and Gapps package through CWM or TWRP.

If your TouchPad seems bricked and won't turn on:
-If your battery has been fully drained, then you may need to leave it charging for a full day.
-When the battery is fully drained it can take the TouchPad a longtime to reach even the lowest battery level.
-The USB cable does not transfer enough power to effectively charge the tablet. You must use the wall plug when charging the HP TouchPad.

-After charging the HP TouchPad for a full day try holding down, home + power + volume down for 30+ seconds.

-If the tablet does not turn on after the previous steps it may be bricked and you will need to run the TPDebrick procedure found in the thread below:
Developer Jcsullins has posted a thread "TPDebrick v0.4" dedicated to helping people with bricked HP TouchPads(Important):
Note* All debricking questions should be posted here!

-Warning: Certain TouchPads can become "Bricked" if you let the battery drain to zero.
-Installing one of these free apps could solve the problem and save you time.
-AutomateIt, Play Store Link- What to do: New Rule/Trigger Battery level(Below 20%)/Action/Shutdown//save.
Or
-Llama, PLay Store Link- Location Profiles:Event tab choose + (at the bottom of the screen) Add condition (battery Level Below 20%) Actions (turn off phone)

How and when to Use the WebOS Doctor (Important):

Q: What's the WebOS Doctor and when should I use it?

Click Here to Watch the WebOS Doctor Instructional video:

The WebOS Doctor is a program that has two main functions for HP TouchPad users. It can either update your version of WebOS or fix problems with a damaged WebOS by completely reinstalling it. If WebOS no longer boots or apps and preware have stopped working correctly, then you will need to resinstall WebOS with the Doctor. A failed or interrupted attempt at changing the partition sizes with WebOS preware app Tailor may cause these problems. To check what version of WebOS is currently installed go to Launcher(Up Arrow)/Settings/Device Info/ Version

Note(Important): You MUST uninstall Android before running the WebOS doctor. Failing to remove Android before running the Doctor can result in the process becoming stuck at 8-12% and potentially bricking the device. If you are currently stuck visit the thread below for information about fixing the problem. If you're unable to use the tablet at all follow the instructions in Jcsullins TPDebrick thread.

The Official Fix your TouchPad ( 8-12% stopped, No SD, Opps reformat, $&^#[email protected]&# crap....) thread.(Rootzwiki)

The Official Fix your TouchPad ( 8-12% stopped, No SD, Opps reformat, $&^#[email protected]&# crap....) thread.(CM)

TPDebrick v004 - Jcsullins dedicated thread for fixing Bricked TouchPads:

Note(Important): Running the Doctor will completely wipe all personal information, applications and preware from the TouchPad. Media like music and movies will not be affected. However I would recommend backing your important files to PC, before running the Doctor.

Note(Important): In order to install apps from the WebOS store you will need to get the Root Certificate fix for WebOS cloud services.

[Video+Guide] HP TouchPad Root Certificate fix for WebOS cloud services

How to run the WebOS Doctor:

1) Install Java

-Java must be installed in order for the TouchPad to communicate with your PC.

2) You MUST completely uninstall Android from the HP TouchPad before running the WebOS doctor. Remove Android by running the ACMEUinstaller2. Watch the following video for full uninstall instructions.

How to Uninstall Android or CyanogenMod on the HP TouchPad (All versions)

3) Download the latest 3.0.5 WebOS doctor application to your PC, place the file in an easy to find location. If upgrading you can check your current version from WebOS by going to Launcher(Up Arrow)/Settings/Device Info/ Version.

WebOS Doctor 3.0.0 to 3.0.5 Official Links

4) Put the tablet into WebOS recovery mode by doing the following:

-In WebOS Reboot the device by going to Launcher(Up Arrow)/Settings/Device Info/ select "Reset options" choose restart.

-As soon as the screen goes dark hold down the volume up button until you enter WebOS Recovery mode. Note the large USB symbol that should be on the screen. If you miss it just reboot again and hold down the Volume up button right away. Once in WebOS recovery mode connect your USB cable to the PC.

5) Now you're ready to run the WebOS Doctor app by clicking on the .jar file you downloaded in the previous step. Be sure that your tablet is fully charged and connected with the USB cable before starting this process. Running out of power or interrupting this process in anyway could brick your HP TouchPad. Please be careful and fully read the instructions before beginning.

-Double click the webosdoctor.jar file to launch the app

-Select your language then click next

-Accept the licence agreement, read the warning message then select next to begin the install.

-Be patient the process can take anywhere from 15min to 1hour to complete.

HP TouchPad Root Certificate fix for WebOS cloud services(Important):
Note(Important): You will need to set the date back to July, 1, 2013!

Click Here to watch the Instructional Root Certificate video

The Problem:
A vital "root certificate" on webOS devices is due to expire on July 23, 2013. This certificate gives Touchpad users access to HPs cloud services for the App catalogue and Backing up the device. When the "root certificate" expires users will no longer have access to the App catalogue and backed up data. Furthermore HPs online WebOS support is expected to disappear altogether by the end of the year. So it's recommended to backup your personal data and essential Touchpad software to your PC now.

Read the full WebOS Survival Kit Guide Here:

The solution:
Getting a free App catalog update will fix the "root certificate" problem as long as you downloaded it before July,23,2013. If you are hearing about this after July,23,2013, then you will need to first set the date to June,23,2013. To do this boot into WebOS and go to settings/Date & Time, toggle off the "Network Time". Now adjust the date accordingly and download the Update, once complete comeback and Toggle on the "Network Time" button back to on.

To get the update in WebOS go to Downloads/HP App Catalog. Open the app Catalog and select the categories tab at the bottom. Next click on the "new" tab at the top and Scroll down the page till you see "App Catalog Update". Now install the update and your Touchpad support will continue to work in a post WebOS world.

Note: You may get a message saying the installed failed but this is incorrect. You just need to reboot the tablet into WebOS and the patch will be installed.

Note:This update requires webOS 2.1+ to be installed. Devices with older versions will need to run the WebOS Doctor first, the latest version is 3.0.5.

Additional WebOS Performance Tweaks:
I would highly recommend doing the following tweaks. Read the full instructional guide in the link below:
HP TouchPad Setup Guide Part 1: Speed Up Your Tablet With Preware, Homebrew & Patches [WebOS]

Download and install the following packages from Preware:
You should see a noticeable speed improvement while using WebOS. Also a few apps to improve functionality.
Note* You will need to reboot the device after installing most of these packages:

-EOM Overlord Monitoring
-Muffle System Logging
-Remove Dropped Packet Logging
-Unset CFQ IQ Scheduler
-Unthrottle Download Manager
-Increase Touch Sensitivity and Smoothness 10
-Quiet Powerd Messages (sic)
-Faster Card Animations HYPER Version
-Advanced Rest Options
-Disk Cache Mod
-Unhide Developer Mode Icon
-Reduce Minimum Brightness
-CyBoot
-Ad Blocker OR Max Block - Do not install both.
-Private Browsing (adds an option to your browser)


Reduce Logging & Patch 'em Up:
This patch require you to log into Skype with the "Phone and Video Calls" app.
Once there place a call to this number using the dialer type: "##5647#"
A logging window will launch, choose to "Clear Logs" first then "Change Logging Levels" and setting logging to "minimal".
Once done, exit the app - your logging levels are now changed.

If you have never used Preware you can watch the 2nd video about Flashing the HP Touchpads A6 Firmware to get it installed.
You will also learn how to use the WebOSQuickInstall-4.5.0 software to install Preware.
Both of these procedures are highly recommended and can be done as part of your post apocalyptic WebOS Survival.

HP TouchPad Battery Drain issues during sleep (Important):

Full step by step A6 Firmware Flashing instructions and Info here!
The Problem:
Developer James Sullins, Aka Jcsullins, has informed HP TouchPads users that there is a problem with our tablets A6 Firmware. This issue can cause an usually high battery drain during sleep. This problem occurs overtime while running both CyanogeMod and WebOS, on the HP TouchPad. As a results the Touchpads battery drains more quickly with daily use and the overall life span is reduced.

The Solution:
Reflashing the A6 Firmware effectively fixes the problem but may need to be repeated as a part of regular HP TouchPad maintenance. Watch this video and follow the step by step instructions to reflash your own Touchpads A6 Firmware.

How to test:
How to monitor your battery
To monitor your battery drain history during sleep install the free app Battery Monitor Widget:
-Once installed open the app and go to history to see a log of your devices sleep history.
-To setup the Battery Calibration correctly for the HP TouchPad,
-go to BMW settings/calibration/Battery capacity/ and set it to 6300 (*f29c), 6000 (*i29c) or 5800 (*s29c) and tap OK
-Note* See the Battery p/n # on the original packaging.
-Note* after setting the calibration, users will have to allow several hours to pass before the history can be accumulated.

So I just bought a HP Touchpad 9.7 32G I am set on putting Android as my main operating system. What I want to know is, should I try and install this 10.1 and try it out or should I wait for a little bit longer for a version with a few less bugs in it ?

I would like to say thank you for making this though and I am truly glad someone is doing this because as we all know webOs kinda stinks. Also HP has no tech support for the touchpad ..... AT ALL.

Thanks yall

No multiuser support?


Sent from my GT-P3110 using RootzWiki
I was able to easily add user support by entering the following commands using a terminal emulator.

$su
#pm get-max-users
#setprop fw.max_users 8
#pm create-user [enter name here without brackets]

The "su" command places you in superuser mode
"pm get-max-users" command will return the current maximum supported users on the system (should be 1)
"setprop fw.max_users 8" sets the users max at 8
"pm create-user dad" creates a user called dad, then reboots the machine with dad added as a user.

I only had to do this once, and that enabled multi user support. I tested it all around and it worked great with all the helpful prompts, etc
system will re-boot with added user and the USER tab wil now be in the Settings panel

BTW, so far all my accounts are working as they did in previously release. (I just flashed this rom over top of my current rom 10.1 03/04 (after i did a backup of course)

The accounts tested include Google voice (worked perfect, no changes needed), wifi (no issues), battery drain (normal but still testing), lockscreen security pins/#'s etc, for users, dropbox, ubuntu one, kingston office, kindle, facebook, linkedin, playstore, multiple filemanagers, email, stubhub, google music, bloomberg, youtube, usatoday, sportacular, espn sportcenter, automateit, calendar, Antutu CPU Master, OMega Strike Fleet, all work as expected.

browsers worked as with prior rom (chrome, dolphin, puffin, browser, firefox).

Only issues so far:
Netflix loads and shows my current films plays sound but not video.
Slingbox plays sound but not video. (Slingbox now works after changing to SQ video from HQ)
I had to manually add mulit-user capability as described in prior post. (updated with APP noted by Roland)
Bluetooth deactivated, but I dont use it.

Sorry I forgot to mention -SGA- made a note about that here. Looks like VFF found us another way of doing it too, thanks for your input:) I will update the OP here, this is what community is all about


"This would not be possible without contributions by users drmarble and jcsullins!

You can head over to the development thread for CM10.1 and hit the thanks button for their efforts. Please don't spam while you are there.


Currently there is no steaming video playback (local files play) or Bluetooth support. The device is picky about when it seems to sleep while the screen is off, sometimes at -4mA and sometimes at -200mA, so beware.

Use this to enable multi-user function! https://play.google....ev.multipleuser"

So far, battery drain while sleep ok, let it sit for 2 hours. although Battery monitor showed a few mA spikes, the total drain was only 1% per hour. OK for me for continued use. While playing with the device while on battery at 88%, I could not switch to the other user for some reason. I finally got the lock screen back and after I entered my password pattern, it froze for a few seconds then the screen went black.. dead. Had to hold power on button for 10 seconds to reboot. No clue what happened, but I lost the access to multi-users.. So, I installed the app noted above and then I re-established access to my previously created user. Will see if this stays in place despite the warnings.
