Update Instruction for steps 1 – 8:
1. double click on UniversalNovacomInstaller and follow instructions to extract and install. Then copy ACMEInstaller2 file into same directory where novacom.exe is installed in on Win7.
2. remember to create “cminstall” folder on HP Touchpad main folder when copying files over.
* I forgot and it stated Power off when ready after lots of files displaying on HPtouchpad screen, the read through the last few sentence, it stated cannot find “cminstall” files. I pressed and hold ON/OFF button and pressed “Home”; then it seems able to power off. For a moment thought I am stuck with that Linux screen. Create “cminstall” folder on HPtouchpad using USB mode again, copy files over and try again.
3. Upon resetting from device info, then upon bootup, press power and up to set HPtouchpad to USB mode, then plug back USB cable to Win7. Note Win7 cannot see any USB drive as before after this reset, the USB mode. Think it is is “mem” mode as needed by ACMEInstaller2.
Then simply type in MSDOS:cd to directory where novacom.exe is installedcd C:\Program Files\Palm, IncC:\Program Files\Palm, Inc> novacom.exe boot mem:// < ACMEInstaller2 and the screen starts with the linux stuffs; and extracting those files that we put in “cminstall” folder.
4. It auto reboots and the screen goes to boot prompt, it counts down and booted to cyanogenmod.
5. Win7 still not able to see any USB drive as USB cable is still connected.
6. Follow through till it scan for WIFI connection and password setup, next till finished!
7. Cheers to the HPtouchpad Andriod version.
8. Press power and reboot. Then press up button to select webOS, then press home button. Back to hp webOS. All files created in webOS are intact.
Note: I actually copied these 5 files as not sure if needed the “recovery-clockwork-tenderloin-1012″ or just the “update-cwm_tenderloin-1012″…
(tempted to try - update-cm-9.0.0-tenderloin-20120412-0800-signed but not yet as this is the first time doing it)
Now “cminstall” folder is left with only ”recovery-clockwork-tenderloin-1012″ file intact. Must I delete it? I am not sure. Everytime, after disconnect using Win7 “Eject webOS-device” and after “..can be safely removed from computer” message pops up. Then when I remove the physical USB cable from Win7, hptouchpad always complains that hurts. Next time please unmount the drive from the desktop.” and goes back to webOS.
I am booting back to CyanogenMod though still not sure how to backup and copy files created in webOS into Win7. Will Andriod complains the same as webOS? Guess that’s ok.
