Install Android 3.2 Honeycomb on HTC Flyer 32GB – How to Guide

How to: Download Leaked Android 3.2 Honeycomb ROM and Install Android 3.2 on HTC Flyer . Actually, HTC Flyer 32GB was running Android 2.3 Gingerbread , when released. Recently, ROM of Android 3.2 Honeycomb was leaked , so some Android Developers has been made That Leaked ROM available for the HTC Flyer.

From the Modaco Forums :

* This process is recommended for experts only!

* 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

Important Note – This Porting/Rooting of Android 3.2 Honeycomb was been tested on the HTC Flyer 32GB Version only, and may not work on other Flyer Versions.
