I made the mistake of attempting to load ICS on my HP Touchpad while trying to help my son with his homework and listening to my spouse complain about a quilt she was doing and ran out of fabric. And, I screwed up...

What first happened was that I used Installer3 instead of Installer2 because I was unable to find a copy of Installer2. After installing, my Touchpad would loop through attempting to load Cyanogen then, after failing it would go back to the menu screen and try again.

After finally fining Installer2, I reloaded ICS and I still have the same problem.

So, my HP is NOT bricked, it just gives me a menu that I must select WebOS to get my HP to work.

Should I use Webdoc to reset things? I'm assuming it will also clear the partition with Cyanogen.
I had a similar problem upgrading a Touchpad using the installer3. It would just loop and not boot up. I think the problem is that CM9 does not install well when other stuff is being installed at the same time.

The way I solved the problem is by copying over a fresh copy of CM9 zip to Touchpad and then installing it from the recovery.

First, go into the recovery and select 'mount USB'. Connect the Touchpad to your PC and you should have access. Copy over a good known copy of CM9 (and gapp).

Once the copy is over, unmount the USB and disconnect it from the PC. Now clear data, system, and cache.

Install the CM9 zip. Reboot and hopefully everything should work.
