The new CyanogenMod 7.1 Android Alpha 3 update has been released; this is the new build of Google Android for the HP TouchPad. RootzWiki has the all the updates from Alpha 1 up-to-date, this tablet PC as standard was released with webOS 3.0 software, but the world went crazy for an Android port.
The new CyanogenMod 7.1 Alpha 3 main features include: Last prominent form of “sleep of death” fixed, Bluetooth DPad/arrows do not rotate with screen, Webkit backing store (smoother scrolling), Minor improvements to 2D/3D performance in some apps, Serial# now populated, as well as Battery stats now available to Android, General wifi fixes, Possible fix for A2DP and wifi interference, Preliminary Touchpad 4G support (no radio), Shorter hostname as a result of serial#, Possible fix for SD card not mounting, Status bar should take less resources after an app goes full screen, and Camera FPS improved but still nearly non-functional.
Must remember that this is still at alpha stage, so is still not what you call perfect, but it is getting there. This new Alpha 3 bring s a few problems such as plugging in the headphones and then the tablet speaker shuts down, this sounds ok but you cannot hear audio in your headphones.
