More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
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.

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...
