HP TouchPad Receives Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich – Minds Will Be Blown [Video]

hp touchpad receives android 4.0.3 ice cream sandwich – minds will be blown [video]

Holy gee-willikers, href=”http://www.dccomics.com/sites/batman/” rel=”homepage” target=”_blank” title=”Batman”>Batman! Remember the HP TouchPad fire sale that set the internets a blaze a few months ago? Well, I’m definitely kicking myself for missing out — especially after seeing this. Like a doubting Thomas, I didn’t have much faith in our wonderful Android modding community (or that the TouchPad would have much support going for it) but the failed tablet has received a very early — yet satisfying — Android 4.0.3 port, otherwise known as CM9.
A nice little thread has been posted over on RootzWiki on the development of the ROM, with instructions on how to build your own — get this — from source (if you’re into that sorta thing). The OP also hopes more “devs” will help contribute and not just kang others’ work but that’s just the nature of the beast when it comes to the Android modding community.
A video was uploaded to href=”http://www.youtube.com/” rel=”homepage” target=”_blank” title=”YouTube”>YouTube showing off all the progress up until now and although still an alpha build, I must say, I was more than impressed. You will be too, I promise. Check it out.

Thanks, lynyrd65!
