  1. First Turn on Developer mode on HP TouchPad (it is just as you turn developer mode on any smartphone).
  2. Now go to Just Type and type “webos20090606″ or “upupdowndownleftrightleftrightbastart” (did mention that you shouldn’t type quotes). This will prompt the developer mode to turn it on and it will ask you for password and you may just press submit.
  3. Now you have to use webOS Quick Install and then select the feeds application, and then select Preware. That’s it! Preware is installed on your TouchPad.

Note: If you don’t have WebOS Quick Install you can download from these sources Source 1 | Source 2

They are fairly simple and I am sure you won’t but in case if you face any difficulties please shoot out your questions. Stay tuned for more updates on HP TouchPad hacks, tips, tricks and tutorials.
