How can I fix a HP Touch Pad with Cynogen mod 9 that won’t boot?

I have a 16GB HP Touch Pad with moboot and Cynogen mod 9. Switched from cm mod to AOKP mod.

Can’t boot into anything but TWRP. No WebOS no Cyogen. The fixes through the reformatting through ACME sets is and epic fail, can’t find or create the store file, ACME uninstaller and topaz image do not complete.

Thinking of reformatting. I noticed when I booted back into my regular operating system, the disl utility shades the drive when I drag the mouse and I get the blue shade. So if I reformat the drive, will I be able to reinstall Android and WebOS?

    Hello George, tough problem. I'm first going to state the obvious: be very wary of formatting the system directory, since that contains files that make it possible to boot into recovery. Did you wipe both caches before flashing AOKP? That is often the leading problem behind malfunctioning devices for custom ROMs. But anyway, the recovery (TWRP) is the most important part of your device.

    You are probably aware of this and are referring to using the recovery option from within TWRP. If yes, keep reading. If no, it's my advise to use the recovery option within TWRP to restore a backup of your TouchPad. Unless you don't have a backup.

    In which case, restoring is not likely to fix your problem.

    At this point in the game, because of the recovery, you have a huge number of options. The most viable is to attempt reflashing the original ROM that you were using, CM9. If it was working before, it may work again. And remember to wipe cache/dalvik-cache before flashing.

    When you finish restoring your unit, have a look at the test drive edition of CM: CM10 for the TouchPad. Good luck!

    If you have a SD card with clockwork mod recovery then you should be good to go. Just re flash the custom ROM or the stock ROM. And yes you should to your final question.
