I noticed that no HP TouchPad hacks have been posted, and therefore I decided to release my own video tutorial quickly showing what it can be capable of. Not to mention overclocking the CPU to make the UI and overall performance excessively better.

First before anything else, update the newest Javascript Software
Found here:

Next, you'll need to download this small Java software.

As you see in the video, you will need to open this software once the Tablet is in Dev Mode, and USB has been connected.

**Remember not to set USB Drive option once USB Cable is plugged.

- To get into Dev Mode: 1 - select just type and enter "webos20090606" without quotes 2 - do not press enter, simply look down and select "WebOS Developer's Mode" 3 - Do not alter password simply press "Submit" 4 - At the top right move the switch to the ON position.


For Java App, Preware:
- After running tablet into Dev Mode, plug in your tablet, launch the Java App, and click update then install at bottom.
- Ensure that the Java App recognizes your "Device Tablet"
- A window will appear and your HP Tablet is now unlocked.

Any questions about a certain app or how to register eBooks of any format, either leave me a personal message or leave a comment below.

This is a very basic and simple way to get you started and to get your foot in the door towards a full fledge of apps and homebrew applications that would never have been possible without Preware.

In addition, a variation of different Alpha and Beta version apps have been here as well. There is a HUGE variation, posted here so give some of em a try:

Hope you enjoyed.

WebOS TouchPad certainly isn't the piece of shit it thought it was, this just makes it THAT much better
