Omnia II Android 2.1 Port – Up and Running

Old devices simply refuse to die due to projects like this. XDA member l3ong91 infroms us that the Omnia 2 (i8000) Android 2.1 (Eclair) port is very close to completion with a few bugs left over. Most of the needed, basic functionality works well out of the box (no need to apply patches or fixes. All wireless services seem to be doing their thing, and the Market seems fully functional as well. This is great news for a device that slowly but surely is getting back in the spotlight in the Windows Mobile arena.

Keep in mind that the port is not complete and that you will need to follow the instructions in order to get everything working properly. Feedback is welcome so that the port can be perfected.

Working things are:

  • Phone

  • GPS
  • FM Radio
  • Android Market
