Thanks for letting the TouchPad community know of the existense of this code Green. Wondering if you or Dalingren could provide any insight into the impact of the release of HP's code and what you think you might be able to gleen out of that code. Again, thanks.

Maybe some nuggets in there to increase the standby battery life, and hopefully they release the wifi code at some point, that would be huge.

This is great news! I can't wait to see what gems can be harvested from this code. I'm Really looking forward to the next CM9 release. Thank you for the update Green.

Assuming there's going to be nothing for the camera though, right? It appears whoever makes these camera modules have a tendency to keep very tight reigns on the API for them. Same problem on the g2x - no camera support yet in ICS is one of the big holdups of a public release.

If it ain't broke, you didn't overclock it enough.

Interesting, but wasn't the port HP was working on based on Gingerbread?

Im very suprised they released this as it takes away from the webOS developement and marketing of its use.


It doesn't take anything away from webOS, it is now an open source OS so anyone has free access to it, which means even more people can use it, modify it, make their own builds, it may even help to proliferate the use of the OS or build better future OSs.

You mean that webOS will be an open source OS in July, and everybody would be able to build it in August.
