What Is OpenEclair?
OpenEclair is a community ROM based on the AOSP (Android Open Source Project) 2.1 source code (with lots of Cyanogen mixed in).
The goal of OpenEclair is to bring to the community a fast and stable Eclair 2.1 ROM, with contributions from numerous ROM developers.
To clarify what may not be obvious on the OpenEclair site, the ROM is aimed at 2 devices specifically:
- HTC Dream - T-Mobile G1
- HTC Sapphire - T-Mobile myTouch 3G
OpenEclair is actively developed (just look at the number of filed and fixed bugs), maintained, and tested by the community which means frequent releases, attention to users and testers, $0 price tag (of course), and all the great stuff open source software development brings with it.
