Download And Install Android 3.2 Honeycomb On HTC Flyer [How To Tutorial]
While, originally, the HTC Flyer was released with Android 2.3 “Gingerbread”, an Android 3.2 “Honeycomb” ROM was leaked recently which, thanks to the crafty Android dev community, has been made available for the Flyer.
This guide is only tested on a Euro WWE 32GB 3G Flyer – it may work on other configurations, but this is untested (i’d advise reading the topic to see if anyone has experimented with your configuration!)
Anything you do from this point forward is at your own risk – my Flyer works and i’ve resurrected a couple of others, but I take no responsibility if it all goes horribly wrong. You COULD brick your tablet
Do NOT under any circumstances run the RUU in it’s entirety nor ‘fastboot flash rom.zip’ – this will make irreversible changes that you don’t want!
Be careful if you flash any RUUs or do anything that could revert you to S-ON on a broken system – this could leave you stuck
This method has only been tested on 32GB 3G HTC Flyer. It will probably not work on other variants of the Flyer.
