Funny: Android 4.0 ported to the G1 A few talented devs have ported the brand new Android 4.0 to the first ever Android phone, the T-Mobile G1.
The G1 was released way back in 2008 with Android 1.0, running on a single-core processor and hardly any RAM.

When viewing the video, it is clear the phone struggles with the new OS, but that is absolutely expected,

The devs say they are working on hardware acceleration, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and screen rotation but those issues should be sorted rather quickly.

If you still have your old G1 laying around, it may be fun to throw on the new ICS, likely before you get it on your 2011 device.

Check it here.

Wow! just looked up specs of G1. Not bad at all for first Android device!
If 4 runs like that, 2.3 or 2.2 will work great.
