[XDA] Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) SDK ported over to HTC Evo 4G!

Well, they said it couldn’t be done due to hardware requirements. However, devs in the hacking scene have done it yet once again. XDA member spyderdreams is working together with a few other devs in a little project that is already seeing fruits on its labor. This build of Honeycomb, which is taken straight out of the SDK, much like the one for the Nook Color, is a rather incomplete build as many things don’t work. However, it was believed that because Android 3.0 was meant only for Tablets, that it would not even be able to boot on a smaller device. Slowly but surely, the OS boots on the EVO without any major issues (at booting). Many members are reporting that even though a lot of functionality is missing, the OS is rather stable with a few scattered random reboots here and there.

<3 XDA devs
anybody on OCN want to try this out?

.....and I thought fully running AOSP 2.3 was impressive.

Just got CM7 RC1 on my Nexus yesterday for my first taste of gingerbread. I hope they'll eventually get this ported over so I can check it out as well!

Why is it that these guys manage to get the latest OS onto phones months before manufacturers release official updates....why the hell arent they offering these guys jobs!
