If you are impressed with the HTC HD2 in terms of the developments that have been possible here at XDA, here’s another case of great development happening on legacy hardware. For those of you too young to remember HTC Universal-in 2005–was the first 3G device ever released with a VGA 3.5″ pivoting screen. It came originally with Windows Mobile 5.0.
Now thanks to the terrific efforts of XDA member notime2d8, and some other members involved, Android arrives with the CyanogenMod 7 for Universals with 128Mb (shame for those with 64Mb). According to Dev, everything is working except for the WiFi and the modem/phone functions.

New Test Build…
I just uploaded a new test image for the 128mb users. It’s the latest cm7 and only needs for the the files to be placed on the root of your memory card. It works ok after it settles and i usually have 51mb of ram free with ~9 to 12mb being used by settings so maybe 63mb free at idle with nothing running.
Everythings working except for the wifi and the modem/phone functions.
The file “sdboot.zip” contains all of the files that need to be placed on the root of your memory card and the folder “sdcard” has each of the individual files.
Continue to ROM post, please read all before proceeding._________
