Remember that gut wrenching feeling we all had when the sad news came that our beloved TouchPads would not be receiving any Open webOS love? Well don't be too down because there is a little ray of sunlight shining on TouchPad owners this week, and it's coming from the Android crowd, of all people. It seems that Android hacking guru James Sullins has leaked an early build of CyanogenMod 10 for the TouchPad. That's right boys and girls! You may not get the latest and greatest of webOS on your TouchPad but you will definitely have the most recent version of Android (aka Jelly Bean) to help keep your tablet from collecting dust.
Right now this is a very early build of CM10 and the list of things not working is almost as long as the list of things that do work. Currently sound, mic, camera, and video acceleration are not working at all. On top of that there is a fistful of apps that force close or don't work altogether. With that said, this build does show promise and cool features like Google Now seem to be working fine. We do not recommend any of our readers install this unless you are of the adventurous type and just want to experiment. In which case you can click on the source link below and have some fun. As soon as a stable build hits the interwebs we will have all of you covered with a full how-to on updating your device as well as a spiffy video showcasing CM10.
In the mean time check out this video put together by REVTV showing off the sweet taste of Jelly Bean for the TouchPad.
