Snagged a HP Touchpad (or seven) during its $98 fire sale in August? Either you’ve come to terms with what webOS offers and its decidedly terminal fate, or, you’ve been hanging out for CyanogenMod to get Android onto the hardware. It looks like CM are getting closer to making this reality, judging by their latest video.

CM has put together an experimental installer, called ACME, to automate the process as much as possible. There are a few steps you need to do beforehand, as shown in the clip, but it’s by no means a laborious task. You can even set it up to have Android and webOS running in a dual-boot configuration.

Sadly, the installer hasn’t been made available and no date is forthcoming — not even an alpha — but I’m sure Touchpad owners are happy to know a bright, Android-shaped future awaits them.
