Hey, hey! Look at the video above, it's your friendly T-Mobile G1 running the brand spanking new Android 2.0 'Eclair'. It's not a final Android 2.0 build nor is it anywhere close to being an official release, but it's definitely still a sight to see. The amazing minds we have in the Android community decided to port over what they had in the Android 2.0 SDK (just released) to the Android device nearest and dearest to our heart, the T-Mobile G1. Good call.
As you'll see in the video, the 2.0 port on the G1 is very, very rough. It's sluggish and not really usable but hey, it's the proof-of-concept and effort that counts! The video goes through some new Android 2.0 features and while some stuff obviously doesn't work, you still get the overall feel. The T-Mobile G1 (and myTouch 3G) hasn't yet been confirmed to officially receive Android 2.0 but we're crossing our fingers it'll come soon. There's no doubt that running Android 2.0 will make them feel brand new all over again. Let's make it happen!
Whats with the FU***** music dude?
is there any way i can get the patch for my g1?
thats pretty cool walk-through, thanks! I wonder if it will be ever available for non-rooted G1s
