Last week Cyanogen team had made an Issues list on which the progress was being shared publicly on whats being sorted out at the moment to get the Android working on HP Touchpad. The amin theings which were effecting the Android port to run on Touchpad were Camera, Bluetooth, Headphone, Display Wakeup bugs however recently CyanogenMod Team had resolved the Bluetooth issue and made it functional for interconnections.  Thereby all the Bluetooth enabled devices can be connected including hands-free, keyboards and file transfers between devices.

Although its not an easy task as the hardware which is not designed to support a specific software is difficult to fit in but Cyanogen Team is all out to make this Android port successful. Now Cyanogen tema has made the list of outstanding issues public according to which there are 35 issues in total (9 new issues) including the critical, high and the low priority issues. This list is a floating list and will keep onadding and removing based on the testing going on Android Port however some of the salient issues being faced by CyanogenMod Team are,

  • Reboot to WebOS menu
  • Camera support to be added
  • Reboot to Android WebOS app
  • Touch Screen power management
  • Touchscreen events are ignored after sleep
  • Battery reporting
  • Enable root access
  • Wifi performance is shaky
  • Plugging in Headphone does not turn Speaker off
  • Gyroscope, Screen auto-orientation and video playback
