How to Update/Install Android 4.2, 4.3 and 4.4 Builds on the HP TouchPad

Note(Important): If you have not installed Android before, then start by using the "Easy Way" guide below and installing one of the prepared cminstall packages. Once you have Android running make a Nandroid backup before trying the large selection of available Roms in this thread. If you are currently using an older version of Android like 2.3 or 4.0.1(CM7/CM9), then you should do a Full uninstall and reinstall. This fixes several problematic issues like increasing the system partition size from 400-600MB to accommodate larger Android 4.2+(CM10+) Roms. If you're currently using a newer Rom like CM10+ and have CWM6+ then you can upgrade with a clean install method listed below.

 

How to check your Android version and System Partition size:

-Get the free app,Quick System Info PRO, to check the size of your partitions and remaining free space.  

-Having a System Partition size of 500-600MB is needed when installing Android 4.2+ Roms.

-Check your version of Android by going to settings/About Tablet/Android Version.

 

Clean install(Recommended):
When updating your version of Android its recommended to do a clean install of Android. You can do this by using your recovery(CWM or TWRP) to Format/Wipe the system data and the cache partitions. You can also fully Uninstall and Reinstall Android to accomplish a clean install. You will find a full step by step instructional video below. First choose an Android 4.2, 4.3 or 4.4 Rom and Gapps package from the detailed guides below. Next transfer the two .zip files(Rom + Gapps) to your Android device with the USB or directly download them to the "Download" folder. Watch the how to update video below for step by step instructions. Note that you must have the correct Gapps package for your version of Android or you may experience errors with things like the Keyboard or Play Store.

 

Note(Optional): After a clean install you can attempt to use CWM or TWRP recovery to advanced restore just the data partition from a backup. This will restore your apps and users data but could cause errors, so its considered an optional step. Click here to learn how to do an advanced restore after a clean install:

 

Dirty Flash(Not Recommended): 
If you wish to keep your current setup and have made a Nandroid backup, then you can attempt to upgrade using a Dirty flash. Download your selected Rom and gapps zips and flash them through CWM or TWRP recovery. Don't forget to wipe your caches, Click here to see a how to dirty flash your Rom video clip. I would only recommend doing this over similar Roms and only moving upwards version wise. For example CM10 to CM10.1 or Evevolv AOSP 4.3 to 4.4. Flashing CM10.2 to CM10.1 can cause boot loops, so be sure to have a backup before you attempt any Dirty flashing.

Which Rom should I choose? What's the best version of Android for me?

The answer to this depends largely on what you use the tablet for and if you care more about having a stable rom or the latest version of Android. For most users who want a stable mature rom with all the features working ie, camera, Bluetooth and good battery life, I recommend Android 4.2, CM10.1 Roms. For the average user I recommend Milaqs CM10.1 and for Gamers I recommend Shumash's Schizoid. If flash support is your #1 priority for things like Netflix and web games then CM9 maybe the best rom for you. Official flash support was removed from roms after CM9(Android 4.0. X) and newer versions will require you to install and use flash via these instructions.

 

If you're more interested in having the latest version of Android and are prepared to deal with bugs and reporting issues in the forums, then the latest Android 4.4.2 roms are for you. There are now two varieties of Android 4.4.2 roms available for the HP TouchPad. Android 4.4.2 data media buids and non data media builds, read all about the differences and benefits in my full guide here. Below you will find a link to Flintman's Non data media Android 4.4.2 build, this is recommend for average users because its relatively easy to install using the instructions in this post. More advanced users can switch to data media builds but should be prepared to backup all their data and do a complicated install procedure found here.

[ROM GUIDE]How to install Android 4.4.2 Data Media builds on the HP TouchPad

 

 

Data media Q & A:

 

What is a data media build?

Previously on the HP Touchpad Android and WebOS shared SDcard space in the media partition. This was the space you saw when transferring data via the USB cable. It stored all your media like music, pictures and movies. Data media builds separate the Android and WebOS space by emulating a 2nd ext4 SDcard in the data partition. The place where your app data was stored, separate from the SDcard media partition. You will need to move the majority of your free space from the media partition to the data partition, by using flashable zips, Tailor or android apps. With this setup the data partition now becomes the main place where your apps and users files(Music, pictures, movies, ect) are stored. The left over space in the media partition is now separate and only used by WebOS. WebOS will be left with just a small amount of free space and the majority will be given to the Android Data partition. You will need to boot into WebOS to access its media SDcard space or use the Evervolv build which allows you to see both partitions from Android. Following these instructions will leave WebOS perfectly intact and it can be used for useful things like flashing the A6firmware [Fix Guide] How to Reflash the A6 Firmware.

 

What are the Advantages and Changes for Data Media Builds?

New data media builds change the default partition layout to more efficiently use the available space. You get a larger area for storing apps and mount an emulated ext4 SDcard all on the Data partition. The ext4 doesn't suffer from the 4GB file size limit that the older Fat partition had and gives you more space for large apps. “Performance on ext4 in Android is also probably better than FAT.” The next advantage for HP TouchPad users is the updated  3.x Kernels all the new Android 4.4.2 builds use. The updated Kernel's more efficiently communicates and allocates resources between the hardware and software. However data media Roms require newer data media recoveries to accommodate the new partition format and selinux support.

 

What is a data media device?(TeamWin)

 

 

Do I really need to do all this, how can I go back to my old setup?

If you’re happy with your current setup and Android version there is no urgent need to upgrade. However this is the direction that future builds will take and if you understand the basic concepts of flashing rom's and have previously installed android with the ACMEInstaller, then you should be ready to test these new builds. Experienced users should backup all their data before trying out these new builds. If you wish to go back to your previous setup you can use the new Jcsullins and Philz Touch DM-CWM recoveries to restore your older nandroid backups. Jcsullins and Philz DM-CWM recoveries can see both SDcards while restoring your backups. The Data partition will show up as SDcard and the Media Partition as SDcard1. Note that due to the larger size of data media, backups you cannot advanced restore the data partition of a data media back up on a non data media rom. Please leave our talented developers some feedback in their respective threads. Reporting problems in the developer’s threads and submitting alogcats can help to move development along and fix bugs.

Additional Data Media Info by Mpgrimm2 here:
[INFO] My HP TP Data/Media Recovery, Rom Notes + Install Guide

 

 

1)Uninstall Android and Clean up your SDcard:

A]Uninstall Android completely by using the ACMEUinstaller2, watch the instructional video here: Next you will need to cleanup your SDcard before we can change our partition sizes. After uninstalling Android you will automatically reboot to WebOS.

Note: I would highly recommend making a backup and transferring it to your PC before removing Android. If you decide to go back to your old setup this will make things easier.   

 

B]Now from WebOS you must clear enough free space on the media partition in order to add that space to the data partition. You can do this quickly and easily by wiping all your SDcard data from the rest options in WebOS. You could also manually delete files to clear up the space but wiping all your data is highly recommend and ensures that the flashable zips will work correctly in step # 3.

Completely wipe your SDcard by booting into WebOS and going to, settings/device info/reset options/erase USB drive.

Data mediasmall.jpg

 

Note(Important): Backup, Backup, Backup, This will delete absolutely everything on your SDcard so make sure you have your personal data files backed up on your computer. Don’t forget to move your Nandroid backups onto your PC. By default CWM backups are located in SDcard/clockworkmod/backup/

 

Note:This will not affect your WebOS setup, apps or Preware and is highly recommended. The Touchpad will then reboot itself and the data will be erased.

 

Note:You could also manually delete files you have added onto your Touchpad but I would recommend cleaning off your SDcard from WebOS or the flashable zips to resize the partitions may not work correctly.

 

 

2)Run the ACMEInstaller5, Install CWM and Moboot:

Now its time to install moboot, CWM and set your system partition to 600MB by running the ACMEInstaller5. Download CWM and Moboot then place the zipped files into the cminstall folder on your HP TouchPad. Reboot the device into WebOS recovery mode and run the ACMEInstaller5 from your PC. Watch the full instructional video here if you're unfamillar with the process but only use the files provided here for installing data media builds.

 

 

Download Jcsullins DM-CWM Recovery and Moboot:

A]update-CWM-jcs-dm-tenderloin-20140317.zip

Note: Normal DM-CWM that you navigate with the volume and home buttons. Both SDcards are accessible see picture.

B]moboot_038-tenderloin.zip 

 

Or

 

(Optional) Download Philz+Jcsullins Touch Interface DM-CWM and Moboot:

A]Download PhilZ_CWM-jcs-dm-tenderloin-20140317.zip

Note: Jcsullins has modified Philz touch recovery to support the HP Touchpad. Philz is a touch interface version of the DM-CWM that still works the same as non-touch based recoveries. Both SDcards are accessible plus you can still use the volume and home buttons to navigate and select options if desired. Philz touch also supports TWRP backup formats, so TWRP users making the switch can still restore their backups. Scroll down in the menu and select TWRP mode to switch to TWRP formats.

B]moboot_038-tenderloin.zip 

 

 

3)Switching the majority of your free space from Media to Data:

With the basic partition layout setup(System Partition=600MB), recovery and Moboot installed, we can now move your free SDcard space from the Media partition to the Data partition. Here are a few different methods that we can accomplish this with, the Flashable zips are recommended. 

 

Recommended Data Media setup: 

 

Before Data Media setup  
system = 600MB
cache = 200MB
media (16GB TouchPads) = 11.5GB

media (32GB TouchPads) = 28GB   
data = 1.5GB
 
After Data Media setup  
system = 600MB
cache = 200MB
media = 400MB-2.8GB ** (depends on methods, 3GB recommended)
data = (16GB TouchPads) = 11.5GB

data = (32GB TouchPads) = 24.5GB  

 

A] Flashable zips(Recommended): Advanced users Gradular and The Ape have both created zips you can flash through recovery that can make the partition changes quick and easy. Download the desired .zips either directly to your TouchPad or to your PC and then transfer them to the Touchpad with the USB cable. There are several flashable zips available but you must choose one that best accommodates your TouchPad model 16GB or 32GB. It’s recommended to use the largest possible zips for your TouchPad model, a 32GB TouchPad could use this 24576 zip and 16GB HP Touchpad would use this 12288 zip. Flashing these zips will leave about 2.5GB of space on the Media partition for WebOS and move the majority of space to the Data partition for Android apps and file storage. If you use WebOS often, then you might wish to leave more space on the media partition.

data_plus_24576mb-signed.zip for 32GB Touchpads

 

Note: Before changing your partition size you must have enough free space on the media partition in order to add that space to the data partition. If the zips fail to flash make sure that you have previously wiped your USB drive via the instructions in step #1

 

 

B] Tailor: The WebOS Preware app Tailor can be used to make the necessary partition changes. This method also works well but can take longer to setup and complete. Note: Make sure your HP Touchpad is fully charged before making changes with tailor. Checking the file system and resizing the partition can take some time, so be patient. If you get an error during the file system check, run it again. Do Not restart or shutdown the device until it completes. Read all about using tailor by watching my video and reading the OP in Gradular’s thread below.

 

Note(Important):If you have accidentally interrupt tailor you may need to run the WebOS Doctor, See the Troubleshooting section Video Here:

 

How to guide for changing your system, data, and cache partition sizes to whatever you want.by Gradular

 

 

C] Android Partition changing apps: There are a number of apps in the Play Store that could help you change the partitions sizes. However the success rate of using these apps is questionable and some require you to get a paid version. If you wish to try using apps make sure you have a full backup before proceeding. A Parted ( Sd card Partition ) Android Partition Manager Pro

 

 

4)How to Install Android 4.4.2 Data Media Builds:

Consult the Android 4.4.2 guide below and Download any of the 4 available Android Data Media 4.4.2 roms by visiting the corresponding threads. Download your selected Android 4.4.2 rom, and 4.4 gapps package directly to the tablet or transfer these files over to the Touchpad with the USB cable from your PC. Now you can flash your Android 4.4.2 rom and gapps with Jcsullins DM-CWM to complete the installation. 

 

Note(Important)When flashing files from Jcsullins or Philz DM-CWM you will be able to choose between installing zips from both SDcards. The Data partition will show up as SDcard and the Media Partition as SDcard1.

 

Philz+JcsullinsTouch Interface DM-CWM(Optional):

Download PhilZ_CWM-jcs-dm-tenderloin-20140317.zip

Note: Jcsullins has modified Philz touch recovery to support the HP Touchpad. Philz is a touch interface version of the DM-CWM that still works the same as non-touch based recoveries. You can still use the volume and home button to navigate and select options if desired. Philz touch also supports TWRP backup formats, so TWRP user making the switch can still restore their backups.

 

DM-TWRP(Optional): If you prefer to use TWRP Download FLINTMAN-update-TWRP-touch-data_media-SELINUX-ALPHA.zip and flash it through your current CWM recovery. You can now reboot into Flintmans data media TWRP recovery and flash any Android 4.4.2 rom and gapps package. If this if your first time using TWRP then click here to learn how to flash Roms, gaps and .zips files.

 

Note: This new layout may show two SDcards when accessing the tablet from the PC. You can also use a the ES file explore to see both SDcards from Android. One partition will be for Android and the other for WebOS (Evervolv 4.4.2(DM) and Milaqs CM10.2).If you will be unable to see the media partition, then reboot to WebOS in order to access it. ie sdcard0 = emulated android /data/sdcard, and sdcard1 = webos /media/sdcard.

So I just bought a HP Touchpad 9.7 32G I am set on putting Android as my main operating system. What I want to know is, should I try and install this 10.1 and try it out or should I wait for a little bit longer for a version with a few less bugs in it ?

I would like to say thank you for making this though and I am truly glad someone is doing this because as we all know webOs kinda stinks. Also HP has no tech support for the touchpad ..... AT ALL.

Thanks yall

I'd advise you install cm9 or cm10 using the guide linked below. If this is your first install try something more tested.

No multiuser support? :(

Sent from my GT-P3110 using RootzWiki


I was able to easily add user support by entering the following commands using a terminal emulator.

$su
#pm get-max-users
#setprop fw.max_users 8
#pm create-user [enter name here without brackets]

The "su" command places you in superuser mode
"pm get-max-users" command will return the current maximum supported users on the system (should be 1)
"setprop fw.max_users 8" sets the users max at 8
"pm create-user dad" creates a user called dad, then reboots the machine with dad added as a user.

I only had to do this once, and that enabled multi user support. I tested it all around and it worked great with all the helpful prompts, etc
system will re-boot with added user and the USER tab wil now be in the Settings panel

BTW, so far all my accounts are working as they did in previously release. (I just flashed this rom over top of my current rom 10.1 03/04 (after i did a backup of course)

The accounts tested include Google voice (worked perfect, no changes needed), wifi (no issues), battery drain (normal but still testing), lockscreen security pins/#'s etc, for users, dropbox, ubuntu one, kingston office, kindle, facebook, linkedin, playstore, multiple filemanagers, email, stubhub, google music, bloomberg, youtube, usatoday, sportacular, espn sportcenter, automateit, calendar, Antutu CPU Master, OMega Strike Fleet, all work as expected.

browsers worked as with prior rom (chrome, dolphin, puffin, browser, firefox).

Only issues so far:
Netflix loads and shows my current films plays sound but not video.
Slingbox plays sound but not video. (Slingbox now works after changing to SQ video from HQ)
I had to manually add mulit-user capability as described in prior post. (updated with APP noted by Roland)
Bluetooth deactivated, but I dont use it.

Sorry I forgot to mention -SGA- made a note about that here. Looks like VFF found us another way of doing it too, thanks for your input:) I will update the OP here, this is what community is all about ;)


"This would not be possible without contributions by users drmarble and jcsullins!

You can head over to the development thread for CM10.1 and hit the thanks button for their efforts. Please don't spam while you are there. ;)

Currently there is no steaming video playback (local files play) or Bluetooth support. The device is picky about when it seems to sleep while the screen is off, sometimes at -4mA and sometimes at -200mA, so beware.

Use this to enable multi-user function! https://play.google....ev.multipleuser"
