How to Port Honeycomb to Your Favorite Device
The excitement of Honeycomb has been spilling all over XDA for the last couple of weeks. We have seen many regular devices sporting this OS, which is specifically designed for tablet devices. However, not every device out there can have the privilege of running this. In an attempt to make more people happy and possibly to expand Android 3.0’s development, XDA member bypass23 decided to post a guide on how to create a port for your device. While the steps are not hard and the guide is rather well written, this will require that you have some knowledge and at least a slight clue of what you are doing. You will need to play with various tools as well as a few commands to open, edit, and re-pack the boot.img to turn it into something geared towards your device. Please note that this is just the rom, this does not have the kernel and a bunch of functionality is still missing. So, if you are feeling inclined to try this, do so with the concept of this being just a teaser.
Please leave some feedback if you have anything to add to this guide.

We are almost at the end of Q2 for 2015, and we have seen most of the flagship phones for the year already.

Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone.
