HTC Wildfire Joins the Honeycomb Party

Not too long ago (in fact, just a  few hours ago) we told you how some of the older devices should be kept for a reason, since they pack more punch than our beloved carriers and manufacturers make us believe. Same goes for lower end devices like the HTC Wildfire, which thanks to XDA member ben1066, it just got its first taste of Android 3.0. Due to the little development on this device, the port took a little bit longer than the rest. However, it still made its way through and right now has the same functionality as many higher end devices. Needless to say, tons of things are non-functional, so do not expect to use this as your daily driver. Yet, just like with any sports car, taking it for a test drive should be fun.

If you think that you can contribute to this project, please swing by and leave some feedback for the dev.

Yes, at last it’s here. This is a basic port from the honeycomb full SDK and more doesn’t work than does work, unfortunately.

What Works:
Touchscreen,
All buttons but home,
Network,
Root,

You can find more information in the port thread.

Best of Matias Duarte – “Ask Me Anything” Summary

Matias Duarte, VP of Design at Google, is perhaps one of the most prolific software designers of recent times: Material Design, the highest exponent of Android beauty, is Matias' own brainchild. Without him and his creation, the biggest Android update of all time wouldn't have been what it was and our favorite platform would still carry a look that many deemed outdated even before Material Design was shown. With an internet following that spawned several internet memes and even a weird community,...
