Hi, i'm wondering if it is possible to build android (2.2 when it's released) and somehow run it with the HTC Hero drivers. Or would i need HTC's sourcecode for that?

And another question. Nexus One will run a plain vanilla build, as it has no proprietary drivers, or am I wrong?

Thanks in advance

Well, I'm still an Android noob, but I know that you might be able to run the 2.2 SDK dump on the Hero. And when the source comes out, I'm sure the boys over at Hero Development will give you a good release. But if I'm wrong, sorry.

Think so, it should be a little while. The only reason ASOP wasn't good for the Hero was because the source for .29 kernel was never released by HTC. Now that the community has .29 source code, and with Cyanogen able to move to the newer kernel (his kernel is already Froyo compatible version wise), it's better than before.

Donut, Eclair need .29
Froyo needs .32

Check wikipedia
