Android 3.0 Honeycomb Ported To HTC G1 / Magic [Video]

No joking people! Android 3.0 Honeycomb now stands “ported” on HTC Magic and G1 with all thanks going to some industrious hackers at XDA. Well Google might have made Honeycomb just for those dazzling tablets out there and most of us perceived the same, but porting it on devices that are now considered legacy, outdated and discontinued is surely an achievement. Even Team Douche have stopped supporting these devices after their CM 6 release, but I guess that these devices will keep on getting bacon unless there are some stringent hardware restrictions

Like other Honeycomb ports, most of the essentials refuse to work as of now, but we believe that soon hackers will be able to fix these issues.
Most of the SDK based ports have plenty of non-working elements in them, so we believe that as soon as AOSP is out, things will start getting sorted for sure.
So let’s see what works in this Android 3.0 Honeycomb ROM for HTC Magic and G1:
  • Complete Honeycomb User Interface [launcher, homescreen and other essentials]
  • Data / Apps
  • Launcher 2
  • Multi Touch Works Flawless
  • LED Lights
Keyboard Lights [We believe this is specific to G1]
  • And here’s what doesn’t work:
  • No Bluetooth And Wi-Fi Connectivity
  • SMS / MMS / 3G Not Working
  • Screen Resolution Acts Crazy At Times
Here is the video preview of Android 3.0 Honeycomb On HTC G1 :
