HTC HD2 Gets Mango Bliss – SD Card And All!

I had an article published yesterday night for a couple of hours, which due to the magic of Word Press, ended up being completely blank. This article was a plea of help from devs to get someone to aid with a compatibility issue that was hindering Mango on the HD2. Apparently, there were modules in the HD2 governing the SD card that Mango did not recognize/like. Because of this, the card was not being seen by the Mango wielding device. As a result of having lost my article, I figured I would write it again this morning. However, as I was about to get started, I got a tip in my inbox from XDA member Warriorvibhu where he pointed me at the same thread I wrote about yesterday. Much to my surprise, it seems that the devs working on this (XDA member YukiXDA and XDA Recognized Developer xboxmod) finally tackled the SD card obstacle and were able to release XBmod-Yuki ROM, which is much more than simply a ROM. This fantastic piece of work includes a feature that will allow devs to update the ROM via installable packages, which would be of tremendous help to both devs and users. Just think of this as the WP7 equivalent of zip packages for Android.

Lastly, by getting your hands on this, you will get all the awesomeness of Mango on the HD2 with everything working, including the SD card. Make sure that you read the first couple of posts in the thread in order to avoid issues, and as always, please leave some feedback.

This thread is about two different things:

  • A rom for HD2 which is able to update like any other devices:
  • A concept which can be applied on all wp7 device ans shared by its community:

You can find more information in the original thread.

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
