I have rooted TP before about 6 month ago and running Oat for a while, but you are right a lot of things changed sence then. That is th reason I was asking if I should install cm9 using ACME3 first, make backup of it and then wipe system, both cache and install CM10 and gapps. This way if I want to go back to CM9 I can.
Is battery drain the same between CM9 and CM10 like -30 mA on avarege? Does CM9 has the same issue with comletely drained battery?
Sorry, I have to disagree with Salvation27 at least a bit. A first time install of CM10 using ACME3 is perfectly fine. What I am concerned about it your skill level of rooting the TouchPad. If you have never rooted a phone or tablet, you need to take your time and educate yourself or you could brick your brand new play toy. So much has changed in the last couple of months. For someone just starting out, I would recommend installing CM9 and using it for a few weeks. ACME3 is the only installer one should use from this point forward. Knowing which recovery program to use is crucial. Knowing how to use them is a must. Reading these and other forums and watching the videos made by Rev. Kyle and Roland Deschain on YouTube about using and maintaining one's TouchPad is the best way to educate one's self.
If you think you have the skills to tackle this, then I would start from the beginning with CM10. It is more than enough mature and stable to be used as one's daily driver.
