OSLoader is a Dual Boot Bootloader for Android on Windows CE Devices
Remember the good ole’ days of XDA when life was simple, and Pocket PCs running Windows Mobile were considered state of the art? After Google disrupted the smartphone industry with the introduction of Android, a lot of developers have gotten to work trying to port the popular open-source OS to their Windows Mobile devices, the most popular result of which can be seen in the form of the immortal HTC HD2.
In 2010, the Gen.Y DualBOOT project was started at XDA, aiming to bring a Windows Mobile and Android dual-boot bootloader to WM devices. However, it wasn’t optimized to be run on landscape-oriented touchscreen devices running Windows CE, including several standalone GPS units. XDA Senior Member jwoegerbauer has rewritten that project in MortScript to extend its support to such Windows CE devices, and the result is OSLoader.
Do note that OSLoader does not in itself install Android on the device, and still uses HaRET to boot Android. Furthermore, to actually get Android running, you will still need an Android build that works for your device. That said, OSLoader offers a convenient way to choose which OS to boot into at startup.
As always, more details, the download link and installation/usage instructions can be found in the forum thread.
