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.

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.

Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
