TouchPad gets Android 4 from CyanogenMod team

The CyanogenMod TouchPad team has now officially released the previously teased CyanogenMod 9 software for the HP TouchPad over on the RootzWiki forum. This alpha release will allow users to run Android 4.0 on the discontinued tablet. As the software is at an early stage, however, many features do not work.

This includes hardware QMX video, so the Netflix app doesn't work, and only non-HD YouTube videos will play back. The microphone, camera and some apps from the Android Market also don't work.

The good news is that users running CyanogenMod 7 can update directly without wiping their data. Many of the sane hardware issues from CM7 are retained in CM9, however.

As always, the CM team is asking the developer community to help resolve these issues.
