    Just in time for U.S. Turkey Day we have a new alpha courtesy of Dalingrin and crew, and it just keeps getting even better!

    * Last prominent form of "sleep of death" fixed
    * Webkit backing store(smoother scrolling)
    * Bluetooth DPad/arrows do not rotate with screen
    * Battery stats now available to Android
    * Serial# now populated
    * Shorter hostname as a result of serial#
    * General wifi fixes
    * Preliminary Touchpad 4G support(no radio)
    * Status bar should take less resources after an app goes full screen
    * Possible fix for A2DP and wifi interference
    * Possible fix for SD card not mounting
    * Camera FPS improved but still nearly nonfunctional

    NOTE: YOU CAN FLASH WITH CLOCKWORKMOD. See linked thread below for details.

    My take:

    I haven't had audio crackling, WiFi seems more stable, and surprisingly in Quadrant Standard/Advanced it doesn't screech to a halt during the 'staircase' 3D scene. Feels like more changes made it in than the Changelog indicates.

    Quadrant Score: 2573.

    Right on! Only issue I had with 2.1 was wifi kept flaking out, hopefully from the changelog that is fixed to tide me over until ICS.

    Did you just install through Clockwork Recovery? If so, did you need to wipe data, etc?

    I've been doing this method for a while (since I used a Viewsonic G-Tablet), so the following is pretty reliable. This was taken from a post on Rootzwiki (since it's so well put together):

    If you're updating from a previous build of Cyanogen..
    1) Download CM Alpha 3 "update-cm-7.1.0-tenderloin-a3-fullofbugs-signed.zip"
    2) Connect your TouchPad to your PC and put it into USB storage mode. Put "update-cm-7.1.0-tenderloin-a3-fullofbugs-signed.zip" on the root of your TouchPad.
    3) Boot into CWM recovery. Do a Backup.
    4) Wipe Cache. Under "Advanced Options", Wipe Dalvik Cache.
    5) Install zip from SD Card. Choose "update-cm-7.1.0-tenderloin-a3-fullofbugs-signed.zip".
    6) Reboot Device.

    All of your data should be unchanged and you should be running Alpha 3. To verify that the update worked, go to "About Tablet" in settings and you should see "CyanogenMod-7.1.0-tenderloin-alpha3" under "Mod version". That's all.

    What do you mean no PC connection needed, were you able to just use the TP to update? If you did than how? Do I just boot into CWM and it automatically updates

    Stability seems to have improved a lot. wifi issue also now appears to be fixed. There an issue where it won't start wifi initially, you have to go to the wifi settings, and it will connect; this is a problem on the Nook Color also.

    I was able to play through all of the 100 easy levels of Field Runners HD without any issues.

    Market worked without any issues.

    I initially had some problems with Plants vs Zombies and Flight Control not launching; clearing the data cache fixed it.

    The only other problem I've noticed is that the network time settings weren't being pulled, causing the date and time to be set in 1970; which caused a problem connecting to the Marketplace and Amazon Appstore. This was in alpha 2, alpha 3 appears to be working fine. Probably an anomaly, since it only seemed to happen once.

    Yeah, how?

    I thought CWM recovery needed to be updated for the TouchPad.

    And, if that's working, I wonder how quickly they'll start releasing nightlies?

    Good to see I was wrong about Alpha 2.1 being the last CM7 release for Touchpad.

    I've just installed it, went smoothly for me (wiped caches, etc beforehand).

    A Google search widget seems to have been the only casualty of the process.

    I'd really like 'Plasma Sound' to work but it seems not to recognise the TP resolution so the controlling options don't display. No worries, it is, after all, still an Alpha

    Just download, boot to recovery, wipe davik, wipe cache, install zip, reboot - just done it from the sofa with no computer involved.

    In all honesty if you do not know how then should you be dabbling with CM at all.
    Go into CM recovery and choose update from sd card and then browse to the update file and apply.
    Navigation is with the volume rocker an the physical home key.
    I hope you get it right.

    I just did it - downloaded, found out where the browser downloaded it to, booted into ClockworkMod, did a backup, wiped Dalvik Cache, wiped data cache, installed from SD, rebooted.

    It stayed at the spinning arrow screen for quite a while (kinda scared me), but then it beeped and all was good. Verified I'm running A3!

    Has this version fixed the Youtube playing issues?

    Anyone willing to point me to right instructions for someone starting out fresh (not an update)?

    Thanks!

    I have little question,

    So once boot in CWM recovery, we will get backup option where I can do backup then
    Wipe options and then will get option of Install Zip from SD card.

    So I will not go in tablet usable area of applications. Making story short, step 3, 4 and 5 will be perfomed in CWM recovery mode. Am I right?

    I assume you meant this:

    3) Boot into CWM recovery. Do a Backup.
    4) Wipe Cache. Under "Advanced Options", Wipe Dalvik Cache.
    5) Install zip from SD Card. Choose "update-cm-7.1.0-tenderloin-a3-fullofbugs-signed.zip".

    The answer is "yes".

    Next time, please quote what you are referring to so we don't have to guess. It will help those who are trying to help you. It will save the rest of us time.

    Just so people know, it'll do this "hang" every time you clear the caches to do some rebuilding. After a flash, don't worry about it unless it happens to last 20 minutes or so.

    I did have an issue with the Google Search widget immediately after the update but didn't have a problem reinstalling it.
