Major Information (You need to know about this!)

What is Cyanogenmod for the TouchPad?
Cyanogenmod is a project that is geared at making your TouchPad compatible with the Android software that is on many smartphones and tablets today. Currently there is a release out for the TouchPad, but the alpha is very buggy, and may not be safe for new users.

Help! I've been getting this screen of death issue I've been hearing about!
Well, good news that it has already been fixed for the 3rd Alpha Release, so now you have 2 options, you can wait for the 3rd alpha, or apply the patch now.
Working SoD Fix

Some of my favorite apps like, dolphin browser, or app, or derp aren't in the market for installation!
This is caused because of how the TouchPad and it's resolution is set up, some apps only have support for large devices and smaller, meanwhile the TouchPad is an extra large device. Do not fear though, because a fix has been made!

I'm just plain interested on what you guys are doing.

Why do the preloaded wallpapers on the android image for the TouchPad have a low resolution?
Most because the wallpapers are meant for low resolution devices. To apply sharp images, there's a thread for that.

I was wondering if there were any videos with the dual boot and how that will work. Also will there be any chance of Rom manager working?
There are no videos of dual booting at the moment, but it should work through the moboot bootloader. Also a ROM manager should work for this device.

tethering works (i can connect to my phone like any other AP)
touchstone works. Put it on and the battery electricity "charging" icon comes on.
So it looks like they have Touchstone firing off an event showing that it is charging, just not doing the fancy-"each touchstone can make your Touchpad do something different"

I know they are not going to release until they are ready....but it looks like their CM7 Touchpad is working better than a stock Touchpad without multiple Homebrew patches and overclocking ;-)

Jonpry had said something about video overlay yesterday... sounds like it's still not happy, and at this point it appears that the camera progress is tied to the video overlay... they're not certain if the camera's working right because the overlay isn't playing the output right.

Also, seems like there's an issue when playing video portrait vs horizontal... sounded like Horizontal worked a bit better than in portrait... meaning it didn't work at all in portrait... (unfortunately, I missed part of this conversation while putzing with a computer...)
