Froyo Spotted Running on the Blue Angel!!!

Long, long time ago, in a galaxy far away, there was once a device spotted in the wild, running Google’s attempt to enter into the mobile platform world. This device, praised as one of HTC’s best devices ever released at the time, was running an emulated version of a new operating system called Android. This device was the HTC Blue Angel. Long left for dead, but not forgotten by many (including yours truly), some development has still prospered even though people have moved on to bigger and better things (no, we don’t mean tablets). After several years in hiatus, this project was picked up again by one of the only remaining devs for the Blue Angel, XDA member d-two. While doing a parallel development for a multi-language WM6.5.5 rom, which is almost complete in its fifth incarnation (RC5), the dev has been working tirelessly into getting one of Android’s latest versions to work on this device. The dev has not posted any download links just yet, but there is a video showing that this indeed is the real thing, booting from HaReT into AOSP’s lockscreen. The dev is also working on what seems to be a NAND boot, for which he posted a video.

If you know anything about kernel porting and development for WM devices, please be sure to stop by the thread and leave some feedback or suggestions to help the dev make this into a fully functional port.

Kernel 2.6.36

Working

  • Buttons
  • ASIC3

You can find more information in the development thread.

Which OEM Would You Like to Help?

Most manufacturers have moments of greatness and moments of decadence, and in the past few years we've some of our favorite companies' tables turned. Some are stagnating, some are struggling, some lack direction. Despite this, we often hold them dear to our hearts. Many of them could use a hand, be it with design, marketing, or other tasks. If you could help out an OEM and take it back to its golden days, which one would it be?

Root T-Mobile S6/Edge on 5.1.1 Without Tripping Knox

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process. It's a slippery slope...
