The Samsung Galaxy Nexus was always intended to be a prime developing platform for the Android operating system, but who would have guessed that Palm’s webOS (by way of HP) would find new life on the handset? After open sourcing the operating system (and subsequently changing its name to Open webOS), the platform has been finding a home on several Android devices, including the ASUS Transformer Prime. Now a version is available for the Ice Cream Sandwich flagship Galaxy Nexus.
Installing the build isn’t necessarily an easy task, and can only be accomplished after compiling code available via XDA forums. Otherwise, we’re sure there is still plenty of work to be done to get the build working up to snuff. Is this sounds like sort of high-level tinkering for you, head over to the source below. If not, it’s still a rather intriguing project to keep an eye on.
