The first thing I would do with a new iOS or Android device would be jailbreaking or rooting it, so how do I do it on my new HP TouchPad? After some searching, I found out that all you need is to switch to developer mode and that it is already built in. How great is that?
To enable developer mode, all you need to do is to enter webos20090606 at your home screen where the just type it field is. This will let you start the Developer Mode Enabler and flip the switch. Done!
So what next? Jailbreaking an iOS device comes with Cydia, so what’s the counterpart for WebOS? Well, the name is Preware. Just follow this step to step installation guide for Preware via WebOS Quick Install. Now start up Preware on your TouchPad and install the following Patches:
- Muffle System Logging
- Remove Dropped Packet Logging
- Unset CFQ IO Scheduler
- Unthrottle Download Manager
- Quiet powerd Messages
- Faster Card Animations HYPER Version
- Increase Touch Sensitivity And Smoothness 10
- Remove Tap Ripple
- Ad Blocker
- Advanced Reset Options
