Hackers working diligently on brining Android 2.2 to the HTC Magic & Dream
You've got to hand it to Android's hacking community because they tend to make the impossible possible for the many owners who were told that older devices like the HTC Magic, Dream, myTouch 3G, and G1 were not going to be a part of Android 2.2 Froyo. The fire is now burning brightly and strong now that the hacking community is starting up an unofficial port of Android 2.2 to those older HTC handsets. Things are going so smoothly that the Dream/Magic Froyo ROM could be make available publicly in the near future, but in its current 63 percent form, curious owners can go ahead and event test it right now. So far things like the calling functions, 3G connectivity, and LEDs are working properly, but there is still some work to be completed seeing that the camera, Wi-Fi, GPS, and Flash for the web browser are still not active. Naturally there are going to be plenty of owners out there that will be exuberant knowing they can still take part in the Froyo love.
