At this point, I think we have all the confirmation we need to tie up the HTC Vision to the T-Mobile G2 and the FCC filing we saw this week for the HTC PC10100. I was stopped dead in my afternoon RSS trolling today when I came across what appears to be a test ROM for the somewhat-acknowledged G2. Now, I will be the first to admit that I am no expert on ROMs, but I do know this could be pretty big stuff. The file, listed as “Test rom for HTC Vision / T-Mobile G2 (Android-Froyo 2.2)” can be downloaded from the link below.I asked another one of the AndroidGuys (Chuck) to see what he could make out of the link and told me, “…the link goes to a page on another site that is COMPLETELY in Chinese. I figured out which are the download links, but none of the mirrors work– they all return an error page of some sort, but it’s also in Chinese.”
UPDATE: Here’s a spreadsheet that comes in the ZIP file that adds a few more details, including bootloader and kernel info. Wonder if the XDA guys are gonna chew this up tonight?
Anyone feeling froggy enough to give it a shot, too? Let me know what happens!
Update 2: Zapote21 has hacked his way in, posted a wallpaper from the build and, best of all, confirmed that it is a stock, plain vanilla Android build: no Sense UI! He has also packaged it up in a “more friendly” format for those of you who’d like to poke around and tinker.
