Yes this is true ! Only after a weeks of its official announcement, user bypass23 at XDA Developers has used HoneyComb SDK to compile a boot ROM for Google’s Nexus One device.
Honeycomb is code name for Android 3.0, the next iteration of the popular mobile OS. It is a tablet friendly OS and has primarily been used so far to boost Android’s capabilities in the tablet market. You can read further details in an earlier post where we covered the new features offered by Honeycomb SDK.
However, the fact that its a Tablet friendly OS has not stopped users from porting it to other mobile devices. Even though other ports are available, this one is important because it is a pure SDK port. There are still a lot of issues present since its in early form. However, since the SDK is almost untouched, other users and Developers can fix and customize the ROM.
If you want to try and install this port on your Google Nexus One and take a look at what Android 3.0 Honeycomb has to offer, you can visit the original forum thread here to download the N1 alpha ROM.
