... But damned if it isn't cool to see the original Android phone from late 2008 getting some custom Jelly Bean love. Yes, it's slow (sloooow), unstable, and the hardware's prehistoric, but it's Jelly Bean -- based on a port of CyanogenMod 10 -- and it's running on the T-Mobile G1 (aka HTC Dream). See the full preview video from the developers above, or check the forum thread linked below if you fancy firing up your G1 for old time's sake and flashing this custom ROM.

Android 4.1 for the T-Mobile G1 probably won't be your daily driver...

And this is why I love Android. Not the (badass) phones, or the flashy HD screens, but the people who use them. Inventive people who set out to do well, whatever they want, with their Android phones. Because THATS THE POINT!

I am astonished! To get Jelly Bean working on that dinosaur of a phone? I salute you, Android soldiers!

Wow.. I have to give huge props when it's deserved and XDA dev. Yahoo truly rock.. I'm taking my g1 out and going to practice on it. THNX GUYZ
