HTC Droid Eris Receives Jelly Bean
Posted September 9, 2012 at 11:00 am by David Watt
A few days ago, we reported on the HTC Hero receiving both Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean ROMs. As if this wasn’t enough proof that Jelly Bean can run on practically anything, the Hero’s rebranded sibling, the HTC Droid Eris has now also received the same treatment.
Though the device has only a measly 528MHz processor and 288MB RAM, yet again, the talented developers on XDA prove that there are no boundaries when it comes to ROM development on older devices.
The Droid Eris, a Verizon branded HTC Hero with minor variations, has been given a taste of Jelly Bean by XDA Senior Member MongooseHelix. The ROM is of course a work in progress, and does have a number of issues:
- camcorder & panorama
- headphone jack
- other things no doubt as this is a preview build
There will also be some inherent lag due to the hardware limitations of the device, but the ROM is functional and gives Droid Eris owners a taste of Google’s latest Android revision without having to splash out on a new device.
If you want to give the ROM a try, head over to the ROM thread.
