Yes, jcsullins has produced a patch that will give our HP Touchpads much better responsiveness to different levels of touch pressure. As you can see in my video, this helps when running apps like "Markers".
Here is a link to his zip file. Just flash this on top of whatever current build you are running:
I've had my Amazon Kindle Fire for a while now, and I've decided it was time to see what kind of modifications I can load onto it. Since I have a Google Nexus 7 on its way, I imagine that a Kindle Fire loaded up with Jelly Bean might make for a decent comparison tablet.
In part 1, I started off by rooting my Kindle Fire and installing the Google market, or Play Store on it using the Kindle Fire Utility.
In part 2, I take it a step further by installing Teamwin's TWRP Recovery, and then using it to install Energy's CM9 ROM.
And finally, in part 3, I go for the gusto and load up Hashcode's Jelly Bean ROM. Very slick.
Overall, I am impressed with the Jelly Bean performance on the Kindle Fire, and I look forward to seeing it battle against my Google Nexus 7... once it gets here.
Please direct your comments and questions toward the REVTV Forums. I've created a brand new section specifically for the Amazon Kindle Fire and this new video series.
Google has released Jelly Bean source code, and CM10 development is underway, but while we are waiting, we can install Google Now, the new search tool from Jelly Bean onto our Ice Cream Sandwich Android device.
You will need to download the Velvet.apk file from here:
As usual, you can discuss this and ask questions in the REVTV Website Forums.
