WebOs Cracked Apps
WebOS is an operating system which will never compare to iOS for speed (and limitations) however in many ways puts the fragmented mess that’s Android-on-tablets to shame. many believed that WebOS 3.0 would have real potential inside the transportable market – however the Touchpad IPK changed that.
WebOs interface simply isn’t silky sleek. Launching apps and scrolling due to lists can appear choppy often, and if (like me) you’re used to Apple’s iOS on an iPhone or similar you’ll be left thinking: everywhere did HP go incorrect?
Luckily the homebrew convergence is here to patch up WebOS and realize your Touchpad IPK running quicker, smoother and better than it did when it left the factory.
WebOS Update & Install Java
The first thing you should do (and should probably have already done by now) is update your Hp Touchpad firmware to WebOs latest release. At the time of writing, this is version 3.0.2 which aimed to fix a number of speed and stability issues. On your Touchpad bring up WebOs app launcher and navigate to Settings.
Choose System Updates (WebOs icon is a present) and follow WebOs prompts to update your tablet. This shouldn’t take long as depending on your internet connection, WebOs update will take about 15 minutes to apply during which point you’ll be unable to use it. Once this is done, you’ll probably notice things are a modest more responsive (especially WebOs Email app) but your tablet is still a bit jittery and slow.
Next you’ll need to grab Java for your PC, if you don’t already have it. Head over to WebOs Java homepage and download WebOs framework if necessary. Java is required as WebOs program you will use to “homebrew” your Tochpad is a .JAR file. This file should work on any major OS, though you’ll need to sort out the assess drivers so your PC can talk to your tablet.
Note: This walkthrough uses Windows. Mac users should have fewer issues using a similar method as the Hp Touchpad is Mac compatible, but Linux users may need to hunt around for drivers in order to use this method.
