Shots emerge of the HTC Flyer running Honeycomb, we can nearly taste it

After the recent leak of an RUU (ROM update utility), was found to contain an early beta build of Android 3.2 Honeycomb destined for the HTC Flyer, hacking masters including Paul O’Brien from MoDaCo, set about making it into a usable ROM for users with rooted devices to try out.

One such user from the XDA forums has provided screenshots to the internets of this Honeycomb ROM running on their 32GB 3G HTC Flyer. As the ‘Settings’ image states, we’re seeing the same ’1.1 for Tablet’ version of Sense UX as with the cripplingly expensive HTC Puccini/Jetstream.

The actual process of turning your Gingerbread Flyer into a Honeycomb one is not without its dangers as is often the case however. Until the ROM has been made into a easy to use flashable zip file, a lot of tweaking, tinkering and risk is involved. Still interested? Then you can find the instructions here and for the rest of you, not so comfortable as to take the plunge or for those with non-rooted Flyer’s, you’ll have to be patient whilst HTC decide when to make it an official release for you to enjoy.
