Honeycomb music player syncs to the Cloud

Last December, before anyone else know about it, we posted a full guide on how to place the Honeycomb music player onto your Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) Nexus S. The two step process, based on a method by XDA Developer johnnie93, enabled users to replace their old music player and get some Honey music goodness. But word out of XDA now is that XDA user White Widows has taken the next step and got the new music app to sync to the Cloud. Users need to have Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread) with CyanogenMod 7 Nightlies, though word is that any 2.3.3 ROM will do.

The bid deal is that users can create their own custom music experience, grabbing their music from their desktop to the cloud and then syncing it to the Android. Several others in the XDA thread have reported success as well, meaning this method is matured and ready to widespread use. Users can pick up the Honeycomb music player here. And don't forget to read up on our install guide (link above), but it's important to remember that if you choose to try this, that you back up your device and realize that installing altered ROMs may void your warranty.

    I think Google will be announcing a cloud music service at their I/O in May. Hopefully we will be able to upload or add music we already own and we get a ton of space. . .

    So what’s the big deal about that? Ever heard of iTunes and playlists?

    Which case are you using? It adds too much bulk to Nexus? Thanks
