Nexus One – The First Phone to Receive a Honeycomb Full SDK Port

I am sure you have been following our dev’s every step for the last week or so as Android’s newest sweet treat was ported to a few devices including the Nexus One, EVO, Desire, and Desire HD, among others. As of a few days ago, our devs were able to replace the “preview” SDK that they were playing with by the official, full blown SDK for Honeycomb. As our devs don’t like to waste any time, XDA member bypass23 who was the author of the Nexus One port has updated his port with the official SDK, thus making this the first official port of this official SDK. According to the dev, the port was not as simple as just replacing the boot.img. About 95% of all libs and apps were replaced, and even the ramdisk was substantially different. All of this forced the dev to virtually start from scratch.

The first version had an issue with the touchscreen not working, but it was promptly solved earlier today. If you have any knowledge in porting or if you are interested in getting more features to work on this, be sure to let the dev know. Next stop, AOSP!

I’m not gonna list what’s working or what’s not but I tried to keep the SDK as untouched as I could for this release… It’s almost a PURE SDK port so it can be used as a base for DEVs who wants to try to fix a specific issue since there is a million ATM and that was to be expected !

If any DEVs are interested in getting more things to work for the Nexus One let me know.

You can find more information in the port thread.
