Amen to that. You know - i ahve seen other phones have semi-working rom builds created from the SDK images. I am sure its just a pip dream, but damn it would be sweet if we could be working on honeycomb now....

it's possible to extract a image, but then it would be slow as hell.

not worth the trouble porting it

I dunno.. doubt it would be slower than Froyo on an SD card.

I made a zombie out of the honeycomb preview and one of the nook kernels.
Touch input doesn't work, no hardware acceleration etc.

I love it (and thanks for trying exactly what i was thinking of)! Sure, it isn't fully working, but it provides a TON of hope that with some work, Honeycomb can be made to work.

Once the source code is on AOSP then getting working ROMs for other platforms should be much easier. I think one of the problems we might see is driver support since the underlying kernel for Honeycomb might be different.

It does indeed run very slow so far.
Touchscreen is working now. I'll try to get the graphics acceleration running over the weekend that should help with performance.

(and I think it's stupid that I can't post or reply in the development forum without having more than 10 posts.)
