anyone found a good audio boost program for louder speakers?

edit: nvm found two programs one increases volume by 33%, other by 66% but may cause audio clipping/distortion etc. .. just go into preware ---> linux apps--->system utilities ...

i also added a tab launcher program to give me games and homebrew tabs in the main pop up menu

Updating this sh*t is a pain in the a.ss. I've literally been trying for like 5 hours. Like everyone else said, it times out a LOT during the download, so I kept hitting "download" again and it would resume, but eventually it just ends up saying "Your device is up to date.". I check, and I'm still on 3.0.0.

Been going through this sh*t over and over. Has this happened to anyone else?

its getting hammered is why.

anyway.

here is a guide for the ubuntu chroot

1. Install ext3fs with Meta-Doctor

You will need to create a 2 GB partition to install Ubuntu Linux on your TouchPad. To do this you will need to install ext3fs with Meta-Doctor. For more information on Meta-Doctor and its installation go here.

You can use Meta-Doctor to create a ext3fs partition by using the following command:

[code]EXT3FS_PARTITION_SIZE = 2GB[/code]

(Note: It is 2 GB in this case, you could specify any size depending on your requirements)

Now, your partition will be found at /media/ext3fs on device.

2. Mount ext3fs partition at device boot

You need to have the ext3fs partition mounted at device boot. To do this:

Create folder at /media/ext3fs using:

[code]mount -o remount,rw /[/code]

[code]mkdir -p /media/ext3fs[/code]

Use only /media/ext3fs as the location because only then Ubuntu 11.04 Chroot will be able to find it.

Edit the fstab file to set it up to mount at bootup using:
[code]
mount -o remount,rw /[/code]

[code]echo "/dev/mapper/store-ext3fs /media/ext3fs ext3 noatime,data=writeback 0 0" >> /etc/fstab[/code]

Now to mount ext3fs at bootup use:

[code]mount -a[/code]

3. Install Xecutah, XServer and Ubuntu 11.04 Chroot

Enable WebOS Internals Testing Feeds.

From Preware install Xecutah, XServer and Ubuntu 11.04 Chroot.

Run XServer and this will open a XServer window. Now, return to Xecutah and tap Ubuntu 11.04 Chroot. Return to XServer window and you will see a Ubuntu command prompt. Use “apt-get install” to install apps from Ubuntu.

This is it and now, you are ready to run Ubuntu on your HP TouchPad.


PS: If you got spare touchpads for sale...lemme know.
