The Google Play Store, weighing in with more than 1.4 million apps at last count, is a vast expanse of quality content and APK duds alike. To put this into context, it would take the average user more than 8 days of continuous scrolling to make it through the whole list at two per second, let alone the added months to click through and check out screenshots, or years to separate the wheat from the chaff via thorough review.

New Dual Boot Now For The HD2
The Android scene on the HD2 seems to be moving faster than expected, and XDA member jmztaylor managed to create a great new dual boot software to assist your Android needs. The software is made so just after the splash screen and right before the phone fully boots, it loads and gives you the option to either load Android or Windows Mobile. To boot Android you are required to have all the files on the root of your SD card.
So this is a dual-boot app I wrote for the HD2. This just gives you an option during boot to choose Windows Mobile or Android. You must have android already installed to the root of your sd card. If you are using the latest android release be sure to rename zharet to haret and the default.txt file to startup.txt and you will not have to tap run in haret anymore.
Updated to v2. Now automatically launches CLRCAD.exe.
If it doesn’t launch:
Open a registry editor and go to HKLM\init and change Launch52 to Launch62. And reboot
You can try the software in the original thread.

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...
