That certainly didn’t take long. Shortly after demonstrating that Google Android 3.1 could run on the Dell Streak 7, independent developer DJ-Steve has released StreakDroid7 HD v1.0 for anyone to install on the tablet.

The software has a few quirks. For instance, if you let the Streak go to sleep while it isn’t plugged in, it will power off and you’ll need to power it up from scratch. But StreakDroid7 HD v1.0 give syou the Google ANdroid 3.1 user interface, support for the Google Andorid Market, and other goodies. The custom ROM for the Dell Streak 7 also includes root access.

Before installing the firmware you’re going to want to back up all the files and data on your internal storage because the installation process will erase everything in storage.

You can find instructions for installing Android 3.1 on the tablet at the xda-developers forum.
