Hot Boot Into Debian From Android in the HD2

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’.

Please leave your comments here if you have any questions or feedback.

Multi Boot: The Fall of Nandroid?

Ever since custom recoveries and roms became popular, nandroid backups have been the fall back method for all android enthusiasts, irrespective of their confidence levels. They allow easy backup and restore in case things go wrong, which happens invariably when a modification is being tested. With that being said, how relevant are Nandroid Backups to this day? Back in 2011, when the world of Android was being awed by the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S2, a little modification made its appearance...

HTC One M8 Owners: Upgrade to the M9, or Skip?

While HTC's latest flagship brings many new features, the aesthetic design of the device remains largely untouched in comparison to its predecessor. Many Android enthusiasts throughout the community were expecting a large redesign of one of the most beautiful handsets ever released, but what we got is something more along the lines of an 'HTC One M8S". So this begs the question, is the M9 worth the upgrade if you already own the M8? Current HTC One M8 users chime in and let us know your thoughts.
