HP TouchPad gets unofficial CyanogenMod 12 port

HP logoThe HP TouchPad was originally released back in 2011 before it was quickly discontinued, but for a tablet that’s about four years old, it seems that it is still going on strong and living a new life as an Android device. We have seen Android ROMs ported over onto the tablet, and last year we saw the the aging tablet still had the chops to run Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Well if you’re after some Lollipop action on your HP TouchPad but aren’t happy with the previous ROM, you might be pleased to learn that the unofficial CM12 ROM has been ported over onto the tablet. CM12 is based on the latest version of Android and will come with all your CyanogenMod features and whatnot.

Now the port isn’t perfect and as noted by the uploader invisiblek, there are some issues. This includes Netflix not working on the tablet, Selinux is in permissive mode, and the camera also busted so if you wanted to take some photos, maybe you’ll want to wait for an updated version of the ROM where all the features are up and running.

In any case if you’d like to check out the unofficial CM12 port for the HP TouchPad, you can do so by heading on over to the XDA Developers forums for the download. As is the case with all unofficial ROMs, be sure to backup your device and follow the instructions lest you end up with a bricked tablet.

God bless you guys for your efforts. That will help raise awareness. My unidestanrdng is 65% of us know of the problem. What do you consider crirical mass? And, if at that point, the issue is still being sidelined, what is your next course of action going to be?
