Strange, I haven't noticed a single thing indicative of an alpha yet after about 10 hours of use
It's much better now. Wifi seems better too (and lots of people are having wifi issues).
I've created two recovery backups so far.
Reboot into recovery is about the only thing that works in Rom Manager.
Easy install, great bootloader design, and it works extremely well for an Alpha...very promising for a stable release in the coming months! I am so psyched to have Android running on this $99 tablet! Making a donation to the CM team tonight, I hope everyone does the same.
Even if I was inclined to go ahead and install this, I don't have a day off until the 28th. And by then I'll be too exhausted to risk making a mistake in the installation. So there's no telling when I'll finally get around to it. My job stinks ...
From what I've seen... more than a couple guys here don't work at work.
I did my install during my lunch break - took maybe 30 minutes to download, copy, and install.
I installed in about 10 minutes before leaving for work.
Then I had to fix it when I got home and install Google Apps and moboot, which took another 10-15.
OK, you talked me into it. I'll do it when I get home from work tonight.
When you installed the Google Apps, did you install them from that first screen that shows only once? I was on that screen when the market crashed. I assume that it doesn't show any apps that don't normally show up with searching from apps with Google as the developer.
This will fix it. I had the same problem: Missing Market Apps Installer
It really was easy, except my HP Pavilion couldn't see the TouchPad when I plugged it in via USB. Had to use my Lenovo laptop. Wasted 30 minutes trying to figure out what I was doing wrong.
I love that two HP machines couldn't speak to each other ...
Anyway, it's phenomenal, way better than I expected from an alpha. My only questions are:
1) How will we know when there are updated versions?
2) How will we install them? Is it pretty much like the original install process?
Here's how you'll know a new build is out:
Click "Mark as installed" below the downloads on this page on RootzWiki.
Dalingin's Twitter page (if you're into that)
When Rom Manager is ready, you can check for an update from there
Here's how you can update:
CW Recovery - copy update to TP, boot into recovery
Novacom - copy update to TP, go into usb mode
Download and install from Rom Manager when it's ready - easiest

I see they've started marking issues that are slated for alpha2: Issues - cmtouchpad - Android port for HP Touchpad - Google Project Hosting
Wow yeah, that wasn't there earlier today.
I wonder what the ETA of alpha2 is???!??! (/sarcasm)
Not all the Alpha2's have a fix yet.
Issues - cmtouchpad - Android port for HP Touchpad - Google Project Hosting
Haha they already have stuff pegged for Alpha3
I love these guys
Alpha3 is your Christmas present.
I see we have C2D fixed now with 4 patches that have been "in testing" for some time now. I wonder if A3 is coming this week? Issues - cmtouchpad - Android port for HP Touchpad - Google Project Hosting
