Step 1. Update webOS from hp touchpad;
Step 2. On the unattached TouchPad enable the Developer Mode to install your third-party software:Next Click on the Developer Mode Enabler icon that appears. The very 1st time you do this Click the "OFF" button to "ON" (w/blue button showing) if it requests a password Leave it Blank and just Click "Submit" bar. After that 1st time it will just put your TouchPad in Developer Mode to "ON" - Do not Click on the Set/Change Password bar.
Step 3. Create an ext3fs partition on hp touchpad for Ubuntu in developer mode.
3.1: on Linux: open terminal and install git and Java runtime. Type:
sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install git
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre
3.1' Windows users can download a copy of Ubuntu 11.04 from www.ubuntu.com/download and run it in windows (like a usual application, no need to install). Then follow the instructions in step 3.1 and the Linux section below.
3.2: Download the meta-doctor scripts using git. Type:
git clone git://git.webos-internals.org/tools/meta-doctor.git
Navigate to the meta-doctor directory.
3.3: Create a downloads directory. Type:
3.5: open the Makefile with a text editor and uncomment (remove the leading # characters from) the options you would like to use. For example, uncomment the line of EXT3FS_PARTITION_SIZE.
Then type: cd meta-doctor
make DEVICE=touchpad CARRIER=wifi all
sudo mv webosdoctorp302hstnhwifi.jar webosdoctorp302hstnhwifi-3.0.2.jar
java -jar *.jar
3.8 Connect hp touchpad (in develop mode) to PC via USB and select "Next" when it becomes available. Ignore the question box appears on the TouchPad "USB Drive" or "Cancel" and leave it up on the screen.
Now disconnect hp touchpad.
In windows, just double click to run;
In ubuntu, use command line:
java -jar WebOSQuickInstall v4.2.3.jar
Now connect hp touchpad. Step 5: From the screen of WebOS click the "globe" icon to install preware
Step 6. Get the optional ext3fs partition mounted at device boot. Note Novaterm was installed along with WebOSInstaller automatically. On ubuntu, type
(On windows, download novaterm for windows and unzip it into the sdk/bin, run novaterm.exe or novaterm-1.exe from the palm/sdk/bin directory)
mount -o remount,rw /
mkdir -p /media/ext3fs
echo "/dev/mapper/store-ext3fs /media/ext3fs ext3 noatime,data=writeback 0 0" >> /etc/fstab
. Unattach touchpad and open preware, touch left upper corner to find "Manage Feeds" and go to the bottom "NEW FEED "
7.1 Enter another new feed:
IS COMPRESSED: YES
Click “Add Feed” and then press OK to confirm
7.2: Enter another new feed:
IS COMPRESSED: YES
Click “Add Feed” and then press OK to confirm and reboot
Step 8. Open preware from hp touchpad， install " Govnah" from preware on hp touchpad
Step 9. (Optional) Overclocking CPU to 1.8/1.732GHZ. Restart (must restart! and keep the developer mode) touchpad to update Feed and return to REWARE---->List of Everything，Install "F4 Phantom （Touchpad）" in the list.
Step 10. Install ubuntuchroot or Debian chroot from preware.
Step 11. To install Ubuntu graphical desktop, one needs to firstly install Xceutah/Xserver/Xterm first, it seems that we can install Xauth from preware and the remaing two are automatically installed.
Then run Xceutah which gives a screen with options to run xserver/xterm and Ubuntuchroot.
Touch xserver and then Ubuntu11.04 chroot will lead to a terminal. Type:
apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
If one prefers xfce4 graphical desktop environment, type:
apt-get install xfce4
Step 12. The p key issue in xfce4: The p key does not work by default after installation. In the graphical environment, go to system-->keyboard settings-->application shortcuts, remove the super p key.
