Video: DROID Incredible Actually Running Honeycomb, New Lock Screen and All

A couple of weeks ago we posted a video from the guys over at t3hh4xx0r who had a quick port of Honeycomb running on the Incredible, but most of you noticed it looked nothing like the tablet version we are seeing on the XOOM and second guessed it. Well, they’ve revisited Android 3.0 and actually got the tablet version up and running on a DI with almost everything working from what I can tell.  This is one of those “Holy sh*t that’s cool!” things, meaning you shouldn’t expect some super polished working port that will forever change the way your DInc works.  Just check out the video, high five all of the Android devs you know, and smile on a Friday.

They’ve also done this for the EVO and HD2 if anyone is interested.

    Its cool to see that honeycomb has been ported to all these devices. It’s even better to see that it was just ported to the Nexus One! You can check it out here: goo.gl/vXXy4

    Do want the lockscreen.apk (or a flashable zip of the whole thing, that would be good too :D)

    What about the Droid X?

    “Uhh…what about it…” says the smartass in the corner.

    Aww. I want this on my N1. Really hope the keyboard and browser can be put into apk form soon.

    • http://www.facebook.com/serio Austin Serio

      I hope the browser is ported soon *hardware accelerated goodness*!

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AR6HpRLyzMY Walter Sobchak

    I flashed it to mine 2 nights ago and played with it for a couple of hours. Really cool.

  • Stephen D

    Wow, very very impressive. It’s buggy and slow, but it’s still amazing that it is running, and it’s possible that the bugs can be ironed out. This makes me want a HC tablet even more. The XOOMs too expensive, if the LG or Samsung are fairly priced, I want one.

  • Edtre36

    Is it hardware accelerated?

    • http://twitter.com/binglut9 Brian

      the xoom is

  • The350zWolf

    This is really cool and kudos to the dev’s, but by the lag time on the response you call certainly tell that the software is crying for a dual processor. This is another case where the software demands CPU power. Incidentally, I’m running SSv5.0 (gingerbread) on my OG Droid and I have to say that GB is also amazing, but it also show the hardware shortcoming of my OG Droid. How I wish that Motorola unlocked the bootloaders on the rest of their hardware. I’m definitely going to go with an HTC phone on my upgrade.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_IRXQUPRGYT353VRYHBW35SFHBM dustin

    a dedicated portait launcher like that with the added touch buttons would be very interesting to try out on a phone, especially with a big screen like my captivate or the new jumbo-screened phones coming out

  • Coaster36

    Just think what would happen if EVERYTHING was open source! No locked bootloaders! No SKINS! Just code for people to play with!

  • Alvinm 77

    Cant wait to get my Thunderbolt. I miss my Incredible and regret selling it for the Droid X. Droid X is a good phone but the boot loader makes it nooooooooo fun….

  • Anonymous

    obv not ready for daily usage, but still, very cool… nice work by all the devs

  • Uncle paul

    And here us Droid X owners sit, with our thumbs up our asses…..

    • Andrew Hewitt

      I actually recently switched from DX to D Inc, best decision of my life. Motorola blows.

      • Anonymous

        if only HTC was seriously about their accessories I’d switch in a heartbeat.. the car and multimedia dock are too cool to passup, and a magnet that automatically switches to the correct mode is a necessity .. GET IT TOGETHER HTC

        • http://twitter.com/binglut9 Brian

          yeah your right the docks for the x are really kick @ss

          • jason6g

            funny you say about the magnet, i actually tooka dremel to mine to REMOVE the magnet. i use the dock alot to hold it while watching movies in bed, and when i pop it in the dock, it always disrupts my movie with the clock lol

            thunderbolt now… keeps the big screen and the htc goodies :D a phone that one wouldnt have to mess with

      • Anonymous

        Why would you do that? I’m not trying to dog your personal opinion or anything, to each his own, just wondering.
        The smaller screen would bug me and the phone feels kinda cheaper in my hand imo.
        please don’t just say locked bootloader, unless you can name something specific that you would do that you can’t right now.

      • https://me.yahoo.com/a/J7Mg.aBrt_zUZAONR5KHn_om4dCMew--#37f81 indio7777

        screen was too small on my DINC, and HTC’s accessories are amateur.

  • Romma1

    I can plainly see why HC in it’s current form is not good for smaller phones. Combining aspects of it makes sens so that can blow up the font to make more viewable.

  • FortitudineVincimus

    lock screen was the coolest thing

  • Jeremy Gentry

    put it on a galaxy tab, then come back to me ;)

    • DIncrediblesRock

      Wrap it in caramel, then come back to me.

    • Anonymous

      Oh look out for this guy, nothing impresses him. How’d you get to be so tough and so cool?

      This video is impressive, period.

      • Jeremy Gentry

        its not about being impressed, these guys wasted their time doing something completely useless. i feel sorry for them that they didn’t have the common sense to stick it on something useful like the galaxy tab. sorry for upsetting you…i can see you already started cutting your wrists over it

        • Anonymous

          The next step will probabaly be to get it working one something with a bigger screen. I’m sure they had their reasons for starting where they did. The fact is that this is a really big step towards getting this on something usable.
          The only reason I responded to your comment is because this really is huge and you just shut it down, totally negative. I don’t get it.

          Oh, and that’s just a picture from google images, I’m not some kind of emo wrist cutting idiot thanks. Don’t think a little blog post of yours is so special

          • Jeremy Gentry

            wow, its almost like your completely blown away by this and i don’t know why. it would be like if a network administrator stuck server 2008 on a laptop from 2005, who cares its not suppose to be there and it won’t function properly. your sticking these devs up on a pedestal for accomplishing nothing. i’m not saying i’m not impressed by the video, i’m just not blown away.

          • https://me.yahoo.com/a/J7Mg.aBrt_zUZAONR5KHn_om4dCMew--#37f81 indio7777

            why so negative? Geez. You sound as if they took something away from you, or maybe added something to your wheaties.

            Get outside and take a walk or something.

          • Jeremy Gentry

            sorry i didn’t mean to sound that way, i just didn’t understand why he took my first comment so literally.

  • Anonymous

    This might be one of the best walk-throughs of honeycomb that i have seen thus far, not to mention that it wasn’t even on a tablet that hasn’t been released yet.

    so who wants to port the lockscreen to og droid for us! :-)

    • http://twitter.com/SL1Mike Michael Swaim

      Hell i’d like the screen lock on my DI. I think thats cool.

    • MMM77

      I want it on my DX…. :-P

      • Anonymous

        With our locked bootloader? I highly doubt it LoL

        • MMM77

          Would the locked bootloader prevent just a lockscreen port?

          • Anonymous

            No, that’s retarded, everybody just blames the bootloader and they don’t even know what they’re talking about.

          • MMM77

            Yea that’s what I thought.

            So yea….lockscreen port? :-D

  • http://twitter.com/SL1Mike Michael Swaim

    Thats AMAZING!!!! Now when is someone going to port this to the Samsung Tab?????????????

  • Eric

  • DroidzFX

    That’s awesome! Is it available?

      Hit up the source link if you want to try it for yourself. :)

        Thanks for the response Kellex. May I assume that since so little actually works that my DI wouldn’t be able to make calls? Is that even possible right now since it was designed to be primarily a Tablet OS?

        • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AR6HpRLyzMY Walter Sobchak

          No calls, no data(3g or Wifi), No SD card or internal memory etc. Its just fun to look at the new layout, apps, settings, widgets.
