Hot Boot Into Debian From Android in the HD2
Posted March 25, 2011 at 06:00 pm by egzthunder1
The HD2 is a device that never ceases to amaze us. Its unmatched flexibility and capability of running multiple OS’ (most of them not meant for it) is rather unique to it. However, it seems that what seems to be good can always get better. XDA member dan1j3l is currently working on a way to hot boot the device into a Debian build from within Android. What does this mean? Simple, if you are booting other OS’ from the SD card, you need to get out back into Windows Mobile to boot into whatever Linux distro you wanted to run. What this project allows is to boot into this other OS from within Android by simply tapping an icon (just like opening an app).
The project is currently being worked on but he does not have a thread going just yet (will open it when it is ready to be shared). Instead, the dev has provided us with a Youtube video showing the seamlessness of switching between OS’.
