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
wifi (working on fix)
App drawer(works but needs resizing)
You can find more information in the port thread.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
