    Your novacom file is probably not showing the '.exe' extension because your Windows settings are set to hide the extensions. It makes not difference to the running of the thing.
    yes correct...zipped files in cminstall and unzipped in acme installer in palm file...i wonder if my 7zip program is really unzipping the files

    These should be in cminstall folder in the media/internal directory of your TouchPad (this is the folder that it opens to when you put it into USB mode)
    gapps-gb-20110828-signed.zip
    moboot_0.3.3.zip
    update-cm-7.1.0-tenderloin-a2.1-fullofbugs.zip
    update-cwm_tenderloin-1012.zip


    My Palm, Inc folder(C:\Program Files\Palm, Inc) has these folders/files in it

    novacom(folder)
    terminal(folder)
    novacom.exe
    ACMEInstaller(file)



    Go to your command line, and type in
    cd C:\Program Files\Palm, Inc
    so your command prompt looks like
    C:\Program Files\Palm, Inc>

    then you type in
    novacom boot mem:// < ACMEInstaller

    15 minutes later, if everything is typed in properly, you should be booting into Android.
    It won't take very long until you see 2 linux penguins and a script running similar to when you start up with an alpha kernel for webOS, ie F15, or F4.

    Exclamation Re: [TUT] Installing Android CyanogenMod 7.1 Alpha 2a on HP Touch

    I've been reading all of the threads. I tried the install this morning. Think I did everything right, but TP boots in WebOS at the end of install process. I saw a short lived boot menu, so restarted again. All I see is a boot menu with:
    Boot WebOS
    Boot ClockworkMod
    Boot WebOS Recovery
    Reboot

    Why won't it boot up in Android? [I just updated the WebOS, by the way, before starting this.]

    When I connect via USB, I find that the android install zips are no longer there -- is that normal?

    Luckily, my WebOS install seems to be unchanged, so I can still use the TP.

    Thx, AnneOnn

    ok, seems like it has installed the moboot and clockworkmod recovery just not the android system, its normal for the files to be gone because the installer deletes them after install, try running through it again and see if that works for you

    Cool Re: [TUT] Installing Android CyanogenMod 7.1 Alpha 2a on HP Touch

    Thanks for the response. I've tried it about 3-4 times. Same result. I didn't see any error messages when installing (at least none jumped out at me as they flew by).

    hmmm, well one thing to try would be to download the below file to the root of your touchpad then reboot into recovery (ClockWorkMod) on your Touchpad, select "install from sdcard" then select "choose zip from sdcard" and install the zip you copied to your touchpad and see if it will allow you to boot to cyanogenmod

    Well, at least now I see what is going on. It doesn't like the zip file (the one you pointed me to or the one I downloaded earlier):
    [RELEASE][ALPHA2][Discussion] CyanogenMod team Touchpad port - RootzWiki

    It tries installing it:
    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    E: Can't open /sdcard/update-cm-7.1.0-tenderloin-a2.1-fullofbugs.zip
    (bad)
    Installation aborted.

    So now what should I do?

    Okay, file sizes of the zip weren't right so it must have stopped copying before it was really done. I tried downloading the zip file from a different site and this time got it. I was able to install just fine. I now have Android on my Touchpad. Just have to figure out what I want to put on it now.

    Thanks much!

    The same thing happened to me. My PC downloaded just part of it. I'm glad I tried to verifiy the MD5 hashes of the downloaded files before trying to use them. I had to use a Unix box to successfully down load a couple of the zip files.

    I got my HP TP 2days ago; arrived with wifi setup issues. No ROM doctoring could fix it. Instead of shipping back to HP, thought I would root it with CM. I am using a Tosh laptop i5, with Win7 home premium.
    Novacom~.jar downloaded and installed with an issue. Novacom connects Palm(sees a palm device) but it does not install as a usb disk. I can not see the Palm hard disk, so I can not install anything. Is there a fix for Novacom... driver? Thanks.:)

    Followed the instructions and almost everything works flawlessly cept for WiFi. It disconnects after a while. It will scan attempt to connect and disconnects in an endless loop. The only way I have been able to temporarly fix this is power off for a very long time and boot back into Andriod. That fixes the problem for about 10 mins or so till it disconnects again.

    It's not everyone. I have found it to be very router dependent. At home, I have no issues with wi-fi. I stay connected essentially non-stop, almost never needing a refresh. (Maybe once every two days or so). At work? I drop it any time the tablet sleeps for a little while.

    That's a REALLY gutsy thing to do....I mean, if you can't fix it and then have to ship it back anyway, there's a risk HP may tell you you've voided your warranty...

    I noticed when I changed my router channel to 4, I didn't have any wifi issues. When I was at channel 11 I still had the wifi issue even after Alpha 2. I found this fix elsewhere.

    Just checking, the 'X' drive is probably your 'C' drive, this is where the installer puts the files on my XP box in any case.

    So, in my case, I would open up the cmd prompt window and type this to get to the directory:

    CD C:\Program Files\Palm, Inc

    and then type the 'novacom' command

    Good instructions in the OP, wish I'd found them earlier! The ones on rootzwiki are garbled and incomplete.

    I did find these, which are very good, too - How to Install Android on Your HP Touchpad - How-To Geek

    Yeah thanks I ended realizing that, but after I type the command in. The tp begins downloading but then it says"initial install files not found, please download it from touchpad.linuxhacker.ru and put in sminstall(and it does say that,not cminstall) the name should start with update-cm and end with .zip"

    so my question is i did put the files on the tp, but i did not extract the files, and for some reason my files dont end in .zip. Should I just add that myself?

    never mind guys, got it working. great guide!

    Default Re: [TUT] Installing Android CyanogenMod 7.1 Alpha 2a on HP Touch

    ok so I'm starting to get up the courage to run the CM7A2 install on my Touchpad, but before I do I have a question.

    I'm aware that being an alpha build that there might be some issues running Android on the Touchpad...however...assuming the installation goes as it should, could there be any issues with the way that WebOS performs because of the other OS installation?

    I mean I know that there's always the possibility that anything could happen, but has anyone reported issues with the way that WebOS runs normally after the CM7 install?

    I'm just curious because as a computer savvy guy I can tolerate some glitches here and there as part of the nature of the beast, but since the Touchpad is technically my wife's I don't want to hear her complaining to me about not being able to use her TP the way she normally does.

    I'm in the same boat. It's my TP, but now that my fianc knows how to use it she loves it with the exception of the occasional problems with the subpar webOS browser. Now I either have to boot back to webOS when I'm done or teach her how to run it in CM7.

    Personally, I had no issues with the install and CM7 runs very smooth for me. I absolutely love it. Hooray for Netflix!!

    Thanks to the OP for a very clear concise tutorial and a huge thanks to the CyanogenMod team for all their hard work. If the alpha is this smooth I can't imagine how much better the stable release will be and can't wait for ICS!!
