HTC releases Android 1.6 to developers

HTC released the official Android 1.6 (Donut) images today so that developers can begin testing their apps with the latest build. These images were intended for developer phones and they should not be flashed unless you understand what you are doing. I decided against writing a guide for flashing these because the people that really want to load them can do it quite easily.

These images were accidentally signed with test keys so you mush flash them with a recovery image that also uses test keys (cm-recovery 1.4). Google has said they will soon upload the correct images signed with production keys so that these images can be loaded on stock developers phones.

This release of Android 1.6 is in line with the recent rumors we posted and we still expect T-Mobile will rollout the over the air update in late October.

Several readers requested screenshots of the official Android 1.6 build and I will be uploading some later today.
