When Google says the T-Mobile G1 will never get Android 2.2 Froyo because there’s not enough space for the OS to fit in the flash space, the dev community thankfully doesn’t listen. The folks at the xda developers have gotten a “very Alpha” build of 2.2 ported to both the T-Mobile G1 and myTouch 3G and it’s sort of usable. Calls, 3G, LEDs, and the notification bar are in working order and it’s noticeably speedier. Things that are currently broken: Wi-Fi, camera, gps, and external audio.
