The HP TouchPad has drawing closer and closer to a full-blown Android tablet substitute, with nightly builds of the venerable CyanogenMOD9, which is a custom ROM based on Android 4.0.3.

While not everything works as it should — no video playback or camera support due to limited library access — as webOS gets further open-sourced and drivers are released, we should eventually have a fully-operating OS.

Check out the nightly builds here over at Rootzwiki, and if you install CM9 onto your TouchPad, let us know how it’s working for you.

    The HP Touchpad has been getting Nightly CM9 updates for awhile now…

    I forsee HP releasing a new tablet running android.

      It was already announced that HP tablets going forward will be Windows tablets. I wished they were Android tablets instead.

    What happened to the “second shipment” of Playbooks, something like half a million or so, did it come and went.

    It does have video playback, its just not hardware accelerated…

    I installed CM9 last Sunday and haven’t booted back to WebOS since. Really enjoying ICS.

    It works really well for me except for an error that requires clearing a file in a file manager, but that’s because I don’t know how to set it up to automatically update the CM9…if it can…

    CM9 for TP is amazing. Looking forward to hardware acceleration though.
