Alpha Jelly Bean ROM for the Venerable HTC HD2

Despite the phone being a couple of years old, the development community on the HTC HD2 is still vibrant as ever. Recently, we brought you news of the HD2 getting WiFi calling on ICS. This added to the feeling that the HD2 will probably keep going and going forever.

Not surprisingly, a Jelly Bean port was released for the HD2. XDA Recognized Contributor smokin901 has released a proof-of-concept port of Jelly Bean not necessarily for people to use, but to prove that the HD2 is still beastly enough to actually run it. However, XDA is a development community, so it is likely that this will end up being stable sometime in the future.

For now, though, the list of features working and not working is about on par with most other Jelly Bean releases recently. The current list of things working include:

Mobile Data 3G/2G
Calls
WiFi
Bluetooth
SMS
Sound check download page for fix ————————– Credit Bexton
Video Playback
USB Mass Storage ———– Credit Bexton

And not working:

Camera
Browser works but display is messed up.
Error when Installing some Apps
Google Now crashes.

There are likely to be some other things that haven’t been updated yet, as users have reported issues with system sounds and hardware acceleration. While the ROM may not be ready for daily driver use yet, it’s definitely there for any users or developers who want to try it out or help make it more stable.

For additional information, go to the original thread.

Microsoft Reaches Pre-Install Agreement With New OEMs

As of late, Microsoft has been making a subtle but widespread play into the Android ecosystem, with small apps like Bing Torque being the foreshadowing of the larger ones to come, and as it stands, Skype and the three popular office apps - Powerpoint, Excel and Word - are thriving on the Play Store following their public release earlier this year, prior to which the Office suite remained in beta.
