Mac OS X Now Running On An HTC Shift Near You

Remember the HTC Shift? Sort of an early-days tablet. (Tablets are dated in terms of whether they came before or after the almighty iPad.) The hardware wasn’t too bad, but, yeah, it didn’t make a huge mark on the world. But, they’ve now got Mac OS X on there, so if you have one and would like a quick little project!

Mac OS X on the Shift is working pretty much at 100 percent, save for Wi-Fi and the built-in fingerprint scanner. Oh well.

It’s only 10.5.6 for now, as Apple removed a bunch of critical drivers (well, critical if you’re looking to get the Shift to run OS X) with the move to Snow Leopard.

The full directions are on the XDA Devlopers forum.
