HTC Evo 4G Android 2.3 – Hack in Progress

The smart people at XDA-Developers are now working on porting Android 2.3 to the HTC Evo 4G. The port started as soon as the SDK became available. However, at the moment, don’t get too excited as it really doesn’t work and isn’t usable.

At the time of writing this post, the Android 2.3 is on Build 4. It started at build 1 where a message on the forums said “almost everything doesn’t work” although it does boot and the screen works. Moving up to build 4 and a few of the bugs are being ironed out.

At the moment it’s hard to say how long it will be to get a fully working version on the Evo 4G, but I’d say give it a few more weeks for a version good enough for the average user to test being made available.

You can follow the progress over on XDA-Developers.

On another note, we hear that the Android 2.3 keyboard is now ready for download. Full details can be found over here.
