Unofficial CyanogenMod 10 Port for the HTC G1

Some devices simply refuse to die, and the very first Android phone—the HTC G1—is one of them. It originally shipped with Android 1.0, and while it didn’t get an official update after Android 1.6 Donut, it has been running every version that the developer community here at XDA has been throwing at it. And now, the device has CyanogenMod 10-based Android 4.1 Jelly Bean ported to it!

Porting Jelly Bean to this device is a truly remarkable feat when you consider the humble specs of the device, which sports a 528 MHz processor, only 192 MB of RAM, and just 256 MB of internal storage space. However, that didn’t keep XDA Recognized Developer jcarrz1 and his team SoCal Devs from porting the latest version of Android to it.

Here is a video of the ROM in action on the G1:

The ROM is currently in pre-alpha, and there are a few features that don’t work yet such as cell service, data, and screen rotation. The speed leaves a lot to be desired as well, so don’t expect to use it as your daily driver. Rather, this is sort of a proof of concept saying that it can be done. Several key features such as the touch screen, WiFi, CM-specific tweaks and apps work fine, and even Google Now partially works!

You can download the ROM and install it to your G1 by following these instructions. For updates or feedback, head over to the discussion thread.
