With XDA being a community of Android enthusiasts, it is not uncommon to see lots of bashing on Apple's iPhone here. There are different reasons for the hate, but we'd like to hear your number one reason for not going with the iPhone. Let us know your thoughts below!
Android Loader App Available for HD2
Following on from the hard work of various devs resulting in the success of being able to boot Android on the HTC HD2, XDA forum member and moderator mskip has written a simple program to make loading Android onto your Windows Mobile device a little easier.
The Android Loader app puts a link in your start menu that will run CLRAD.exe and HARET.exe (stored on your SD card) to load Android. The unique feature of this loader is that it allows you to load Android if you have already booted up into Windows Mobile (rather than having to load Android before WM boot).
mskip has included an icon for the app so that you can add a shortcut to the program in your daily interface. In order to load up Android, you will need to have your desired build of Android copied on your SD card.
Currently only available for WWE ROMs, mskip has offered to make an alternative cab file for any other language ROMs as long as you are able to provide the dev with the name of your SD card.
To download the tool, and for links to Android builds, visit the application thread.
