CyanogenMod 7 with WiFi for HP TouchPad Android

September 19, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

If you are one of those lucky folks who have managed to get their hands on the hugely discounted HP TouchPad, you will sure be amused by this. The team over at CyanogenMod has managed to get a step closer to porting Google’s Android to run on the WebOS tablet.

A new video of CyanogenMod 7 running on the HP touchPad has come up now, with a set of new features.

The video features the latest version of the CyanogenMod 7 with updates such as WiFi, basic audio support, the Android market as well as the accelerometer for automatic screen rotation.

For those who do not know, the CyanogenMod 7 is a custom Android distribution based on Google’s source code for Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Instead of upgrading to Honeycomb, they are waiting for the release of Ice Cream Sandwich designed to run on both phones and tablets.

There seems to be some bugs in this one as well, which the team is working on. The CyanogenMod 7 uses one of the cores of the 1.2 GHz dual core processor of TouchPad in the demo. There is also a mediaserver app which uses most of the CPU cycles.

The CyanogenMod team is working on bringing perfection to the Android port before offering it to the customers. Check out the video and wait for the release if you are impressed.
