Trying to go to Android

HP Recommended

WebOS / Palm OS

I have a perfectly good touchpad, that has been abandoned by HP.. and the WebOS is virtually useless.. Now the options of changing out the software,  my choice would be to go with Android.. matches everything else that I have thats portable.  So, I download the program which of course is a zip..  and its title is toolbox and it helps convert the touchpad from webos to Android.. 

 

So, we get the program downloaded, and we attempt to open the program with its link,  golly molly webos apparently sensing it was headed out the back door,  decided we are not going to even open the download..  we are going to throw an error message at this ole woman...   Error unable to open mime....    now, I construe this means, it can't open a zip? 

 

or is it this 2013 version of webos is learning how to be complicated..  Have any suggestions?  

 

Is it possible to connect the tablet to my pc and go through my pc to  add the program?

If memory serves you do have to unzip the files on a PC and the Touchpad has to be connected to the PC..  At the time I did this (5 or 6 years ago?) there were a couple of websites that documented the process in pretty good detail.  This site may have been the one used:

Not sure if the links in it are still live but the steps look familiar.  Alternatively- Try a Google search using something like "Android conversion on HP Touchpad" and see what you come up with.  There is a robust community of helpful folks that have been doing this for a while and are glad to share their expertise. 

 

Good Luck
