In recent weeks there had been lot of progress on Android Port for HP TouchPad and recently hardware Acceleration, 720p HD Video Playback and Sound Issue were resolved. However 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 28 issues in total including the critical, high and the low priority issues. This list is a floating list and will keep on adding 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
  • Touchscreen events are ignored after sleep
  • Bluetooth Support to be added
  • Wifi performance is shaky
  • Plugging in Headphone does not turn Speaker off
  • Gyroscope, Screen auto-orientation and video playback
CyanogenMod team wants to create WebOS boot menu which is user select-able for WebOS or Android Launching. Although you might opt for completely removing the WebOS and replacing it with Android but still the team wants you to have Dual boot capability.
For last few weeks since HP officially turned down WebOS and put TouchPad on 99$ Clearance lot of developersare working to get something big out of 99$ 1.2 GHz Dual Core device whether it be installation of Android 2.2.1 on HP TouchPad or installation of CynogenMod 7 on HP TouchPad. Although a mjor chunck of work has been done but still some fine tuning will take time. HP TouchPad Android 2.2.1 port appeared followed by installation of CynogenMod 7 on HP TouchPadAndroid 2.3.x Gingerbread And webOS Dual BootOverclocking HP Touch Pad to 1.9 Ghz andAndroid Port gets MultiTouch support was revealed.

In the development which is being done at the moment its not guaranteed that every Android feature work exactly as planned how ever the overall implementation of Multi touch is a major success.
