If you are familiar with Xiaomi, you might have heard that they are not the most compliant when it comes to the General Public License that makes the core of Android open to us. The terms of the GPLv2 state that since the Android kernel is based on the Linux kernel, which is licensed under GPL,v2 Android has to be open-source for everyone to study or modify, and those that modify the Android kernel have to make their sources immediately available for...
New DualBoot XDAndroid Package for GSM/CDMA Rhodium
As most of you know, XDAndroid is the name for the Android port for many HTC devices, such as the Diamond, Blackstone, and Rhodium. There are a lot of people working on the port, It’s still not fully working but it’s getting better and better.
Reefermattness has created a package that quickly installs the updated Android package for the GSM and CDMA Rhodium, also known as the Touch Pro 2.The package also includes the famous Gen. Y Dualboot application by Yozgatg, which makes it possible to choose your OS at startup.

I actually started this for a friend, but figured it might help streamline the process. This is for people who want to try the Rhodium Android, but don’t have the time, patience, or know-how to build their own working package. I will also provide all the links to where I find this information, so that everyone who is so inclined can watch the progress themselves.
If your looking for the CDMA version Android for the TP2/Rhod, then follow THIS LINK.
This is currently the best working version we can get going on the Rhodium. It is far from complete, but every day the XDAndroid Devs have breakthroughs which bring us closer to a full working port. Full data is working (although it shows my ATT as “Cingular” still, and sometimes literally shows my network as “AT&T?”), including Marketplace, Geo-Locations, and all Sync options. If data is not working fully perhaps check your APN settings (HERE). The USB charger will work, but the battery meter does not function properly, it will almost always show 100%. WiFi for the time being will crash the device until they get the drivers sorted properly.

A few months ago, we came up with the idea of presenting the history of flagship devices released by some of the major Android OEMs. In this, we've had the pleasure of bringing you the stories of Sony (Ericsson) and Samsung. Now, it's time for our third and final installment. This is a very special episode, as the OEM I will talk about was heavily connected to Android and the beginnings of XDA as a whole. Yes, I'm talking about HTC, the...
