Sweet, sweet Internet,
You waited more-or-less patiently for over a month, so at long last, here it is-- an alpha version of CyanogenMod 7.1.0 (an enhanced version of Google's Android 2.3) for the TouchPad.
Understand, this version is definitely an alpha, with all that implies. Those expecting perfection will be sorely disappointed. Many things won't work as well as they will eventually. But you wanted it ASAP, and hopefully, this version should be somewhat useable and gives a sense of progress.
With that said, let's answer some questions, FAQ style.
