    How many of you guys remember the HTC G1, the first Android smartphone from Google? Well, it's had a bit of a resurrection, with a working port of Jelly Bean! As you can see in the video above, the venerable device is rocking a CM10 port of Jelly Bean, and is somewhat functional. The OS is running slow on the older hardware, but the Touchscreen, WiFi, Apps, & CM features are working. The cellular, data & screen rotation are still not functioning, so it can't really be used as a phone just yet. Still, it's nice to see the old boy still has some kick in him. It's especially impressive that it works at all, considering that the phone doesn't meet the minimum hardware specs for the OS.
