There are two ways to speed up the HP TouchPad. You can speed it up by overclocking the processor, this post will show you how to do this or you can speed it up by installing a couple patches from preware and you can view that tutorial by clicking here.

Keynotes about overclocking:
• Relatively safe to do
• No noticeable effect on battery (stock usually pulls 550mah and 1.5ghz is pulling like 565mah.
• Touchpad becomes incredibly fast, fluid, responsive, and is a joy to use
• No heat created
• Overclocks both cores
• Feels like you have next generation hardware after the overclock
• Smooth like silk
1. Be sure to update to the latest version firmware which is 3.0.2 at this moment. If you don’t know how to update visit this post.
2. Secondly you will need to have Preware install on you device. If you don’t have Preware installed on your device visit this post for step-by-step instructions on how to do it. After you have Preware installed you can proceed to the next step.
4. When Preware opens the first thing you want to do is, tap Available Packages >> Patch >> All >> And install Advanced Reset Options. It will require a Luna restart after it installs, just press “Yes” when prompted.
6. These next couple steps are crucial. Scroll to the bottom of that page, where you will see “New Feed” and you will have to add a few thing here. You will need to type the name of the feed EXACTLY like how it is below. Also, you want to add the URL EXACTLY the same as well.
Lets begin with the first one.
After you’ve added the first one, it’s time to add the second one.
7. After adding these two feeds, go back to the main page of the Preware application using the back arrow. Now tap List Everything from the main menu options. Locate and install Govnah. You may need to scroll down a bit to find this. If you cannot find it, use the magnifying glass on the top right hand corner to type out Govnah. When you find Govnah, tap Install.
9. When the device reboots, launch Preware again. You will have to add another feed, just like you did in step 6.
When using experimental kernel, you must follow the 6 rules at Testing Feeds – WebOS Internals.
11. When the device reboots, launch Preware again. Preware will begin to update the feeds; if this fails or has any errors, you either mistyped the name, the URL, or did not immediately reboot when you were suppose to.
12. After Preware has finished updating the feeds, tap List of Everything on the main page. Under List of Everything, locate F15C Eagle (Touchpad). F15C Eagle (Touchpad) is the Kernel that you will use to overclock your HP Touchpad.
14. That’s it, when the device reboots, it should be overclocked!
CFS: Generally more consistent, use when you want consistent performance and/or if BFS kernels do not work well with your phone. Sometimes will appear to be smoother than a BFS kernel in overall use. The stock HTC kernel uses CFS and it is more standard than BFS.
BFS: Generally a bit faster but a bit more inconsistent (might appear to slow down more and such). Usually faster overall performance but will not look as smooth as a CFS kernel (in general).
Q: Can’t get the 1.7Ghz overclock?
A: Make sure your system is updated to 3.0.2 AND you followed the adding of the experimental feeds (pre.is.awesome) down to the T (add,reboot,update feed).
Q: How can I remove the overclock?
A: Simply uninstall the Kernel via Preware.
Q: Only one core is overclocking for me. The other one is not doing anything!? –
A: Try to set Govnah to “OnDemand” and not “OnDemandCTL”
