CM9 Alpha0 released for HP Touchpad

Seems that HP Touchpad is on a roll this month as CyanogenMod 9 Alpha 0 has been released for it yesterday. It looks very nice but still there's a very long way to go as the following still don't work:
  • Hardware accelaration - hence no Netflix and YouTube only works in SD mode
  • Audio is messed up and microphone does not work yet
  • Camera does not work as the hardware drivers are closed source
  • Most hardware problems from CM7 have been inherited
  • TP does not show as an external USB drive when connected
To get this on your TP, you need to do the following:
  1. Download the following 3 files and put them in a folder called cminstall in the root of yout Touchpad:
    1. CM9 Alpha0 from here or here
    2. Clockwork Recovery from here, and
    3. Moboot from here
  2. Install NovaCom drivers on you PC/laptop from here or here or here if you do not have them already
  3. Ensure that Development mode is on in your Touchpad and connect it to the PC in USB mode
  4. Run the command
    novacom boot mem:// < ACMEInstaller2
    and twiddle your fingers while waiting for the install to run & complete!
It looks quite good for an Alpha0 release - let's hope it progresses faster and better!
P.S.: Please let me know if the above does not work for you or if there's any step missing :)
