MIUI for the HP Touchpad

With the recent announcement of webOS’s impending transition to an open source license, some of us may have temporarily forgotten about our favorite little green robot. Rest assured, however, that some does not necessarily mean all.

Thanks to hard work by XDA Senior Member scott951, adventurous TouchPad owners can now experience a taste of MIUI-flavored Gingerbread on their tablets. Unlike previous Android ports to the tablet, which have mainly centered around CyanogenMod and its derivatives, this MIUI infusion results in quite a favorable tablet experience.

 Working:

  • Audio/Sound
  • Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth
  • Touchscreen
  • Charging
  • All sensors
  • Wired earphone/headphone
  • Gallery
  • YouTube
  • MIUI Backup (don’t backup contacts)
  • Multi-Touch
  • MIUI Themes

Not Working:

  • No On-Screen Menu (working on it)
  • Other Random Bugs

Stability and functionality seems to be excellent for an alpha ROM. As such, this ROM is scheduled to shed its alpha status quite soon.

TouchPad owners wishing to get in on the action should proceed to the ROM thread.

The terms of the GPLv2 state that since the Android kernel is based on the Linux kernel, which is licensed under GPL,v2 Android has to be open-source for everyone to study or modify, and those that modify the Android kernel have to make their sources immediately available for...

The History of Flagships: Part III – HTC

Yes, I'm talking about HTC, the...
