HTC Droid Eris Receives Jelly Bean
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.

It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis. I won't do them the search-engine-ranking honor of providing a direct link to their site, but a quick search will find them, and their app on the Play Store and iTunes store....
More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
