TouchPad too Slow? Increase its performance for Free!

Quickly and easily speed up your TouchPad by turning the logging level down to minimal. You will see a noticeable increase in speed. The website lists how to do this on webOS 3.0, here are some slight modifications for 3.0.2:

1. Go to Settings, Device Info
2. Touch Device Info in the upper left corner and touch Custom Application...
3. type ##5647#
4. A pop up will appear (change logging levels)
5. Touch "Set Logging to Minimum"
6. Confirm
7. Enjoy your faster Touchpad!!

There are ways to turn off logging completely for added speed and even overclock the touchpad for a larger speed boost. You can easily find these with a web search.

If you have Preware installed, after you Set Logging to Minimal, you should install EOM Overlord Monitoring, Muffle System Logging, and Remove Dropped Packet Logging. You can find them all off of Preware.

It's fairly pretty smooth afterwards, but Facebook, Calendar, and the App Catalog will still have issues. They really need to be optimized a bit better, especially the App Catalog.

If your TP is still laggy afterwards, then reset it. Mine was great after the patch then slowly got really really laggy, I reset and it's back to being great.

I agree with overclocking. This is definately the best way to get a faster Touchpad. I recommend the 1.5ghz instead of the higher options as this is the most stable and doesn't drain your battery much at all. Here is a youtube video I found of how to overclock your HP Touchpad:

Alternatively, you can also overclock it without being too tech savvy. Just google "Overclocking HP Touchpad" =]

Keep in mind that this may void your touchpad's warranty.
