Note: If you have any trouble with the Novacom Driver install, this is a link to a universal novacom installer which detects and downloads the appropriate drivers for installation. -novacom-installer/downloads/list
How do i get a working novacom driver , every time i try one of the links and try and run it i get an error , i am running windows 10 and trying to install android on my hp touchpad but the novacom is holding me back.
(2) installed Novacom drivers: these are no longer avail where specified (and the universal installer kept failing, instead downloaded drivers for OS X from the waybackmachine: ://www.openwebosproject.org/opensource/packages.html
Hey Rick R I was having the same issue. I realized that apparently you are supposed to leave the download files zipped when you transfer them to your touchpad. I kept unzipping them into the folder and getting the same error. If you were doing the same thing just copy each ZIP into the folder and go from there. Hope this helps.
hi.. i am new to this methodology and first time installing android on my touchpad.. i followed the above steps in order specified and thought everything worked (like i see driver installed successfully, see some commands on my touch pad after executing novacom.exe boot mem:// < ACMEInstaller3) but after the install, when the touch pad was restarted, i thought after clicking home button, it will go to android version but i dont see the option. i.e., after restart, i see mobot 0.3.5, boot webOS, boot ClockworkMod, boot webOS Recovery, reboot, shutdown.. I see everything in blue except mobot 0.3.5. using volume/home button combination, i could go to anyother option but not this one.. Can you please help..
Hi I downloaded the files as per instruction (i already have CM9 installed but it doesnt perform too well) if I boot in cyanogen then my windows 7 laptop cannot download the drivers, if I boot in webOS the drivers download ok to my laptop but the touchpad appears as removable device F and I get a message saying disc on device F needs formatting first.. this means all data will be erased (not a good option either surely) please advise as I cannot find a way to load the files to the touchpad (confused) thanks
Hi I am running Cyan 7 on the touchpad. Attemepted to update to Cyan 9 using Win 7. I kept getting the couldnt connect to server problem. Went into Services console and found Palm Novacom was disabled. Started that and update started correctly. But here is the weird thing, despite completing and rebooting it is still Cyan 7. I had downloaded the latest Nightly build. Any ideas please? Have tried it twice same result nothing changed and states Cyan 7.
To use, simply download and unzip the Uninstaller. Then connect the TouchPad to your computer via USB. Then restart the TouchPad with the volume-up key held until you see the large, white USB logo. Then, issue this command on your Terminal/Command Line on your computer: $ novacom boot mem:// < ACMEUninstaller
novacom.exe boot mem:// < ACMEInstaller2 and i could see on the touchpad that it was extracting files and installing them. It looked like it was done and on the last line it says Power off when ready. I managed to get out of this mode and restart back in the WebOS. Tried reinstalling and the same thing.
I have solved this problem by uninstalling novacom (using program uninstaller on windows) then reinstalling novacom using WebOSQuickInstall-4.3.1.jar or whatever last version is (you may already have this file on your computer if you have installed preware previously on your touchpad, if not, look it up on google. hope this helps
In this two part segment, we learn how to properly overclock the HP TouchPad. One of the few complaints about the tablet was the occasional slow reaction time of the processor, but now you can speed up your TouchPad for a faster webOS. This guide walks you through everything from downloading Novacom drivers to inputting the Konami code.
