Froyo Appears On CDMA Hero

Hot on the heels of Froyo being rolled out on the Google Nexus One, XDA forum member zenulator has managed to do a quick and dirty port of the Nexus One FRF50 update to the CDMA HTC Hero!

zenulator has posted the ROM up for testing and feedback.  Although Froyo is not fully working – and it won’t be until the full source is published on a similar device, it does boot and there are some functioning features.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
