Little by little CyanogenMod 9 is getting closer to an official release and thanks to eyeballer @ XDA you can now get access to nightly TouchPad CM9 builds. This is not official yet but it’s nice to be able to get updates on a daily basis. Installing these nightly builds can simply be done using ClockworkMod Recovery. Find out more after the break.

We found the latest builds to work perfectly on our HP TouchPad tablet, ICS is so much better than any of the Gingerbread ROMs… You need to try it! Wi-Fi is working fine but the camera is still not working so no video on Skype for example.
Follow these instructions to install the CyanogenMod 9 KANG nightly builds on your TouchPad:
- Boot into Recovery
- Wipe Data if you’re coming from a different ROM (always safer)
- Wipe Cache partition
- Wipe Dalvik cache
- Choose the update-cm-9.0.0-tenderloin-KANG-<DATE>-040001-signed.zip file you downloaded and install.
