Honeycomb SDK Ported to the HTC EVO!!!

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.

Remember, this is in very, very, very alpha stage, so unless you know what you are doing, please don’t flash it. If you do flash it and can help in development, please be sure to leave your feedback for the devs.

You flash it at your own risk. Backup everything.
Many things are broken like
SD card
Music player
Radios
Audio
camera
wifi (working on fix)
4g
App drawer(works but needs resizing)

You can find more information in the port thread.
