HP Touchpad sees update to CyanogenMod 7 Alpha 2
Good news for all of you TouchPad owners out there rocking CyanogenMod 7. The CM team announced Alpha 2 of the immensely popular AOSP build for the TouchPad, bringing a huge list of fixes and improvements along with it. Don’t assume that means you won’t still run into bugs and glitches along the way, there’s a reason it’s still sporting that Alpha tag. Hit that source link for all the information and the download if you’re feeling a little daring. Jump over the break for the full changelog.
(AKA things we hope we fixed)
* Plugging headphones in should now shut off speaker volume

* More apps now available in market (thanks to Flemmard)
* Temporarily removed suspect fsck_msdos to fix random folder deletion on media/sdcard.
* At least one type of “sleep of death” (TP won’t wake up) has been fixed
* Wifi should no longer hang in sleep
* Vibrator no longer disappears
* Touchscreen no longer unresponsive after sleep
* cifs support added
* Touchstone should now charge better

* Misc. fixes to ACME Installer (more graceful exits, nonstandard LVM media location handling, etc.)
* fixes to surfaceflinger to improve performance

Additionally, there is now an ACME UnInstaller for those who wish to remove the alpha completely. It should remove cm7 and reclaim the space back to the original media partition. Just as with the alpha itself, use the uninstaller at your own risk. Instructions for use are below.
