Port-A-Droid Makes Running and Testing Android Builds a Breeze

The now aging HTC HD2 is still considered by many to be one of the best devices to come out from HTC. Its incomparable versatility (thanks to the efforts of countless people) allows a user to switch between most widely used OS systems including its native Windows Mobile, Android, Windows Phone 7, Ubuntu, MeeGo, and more.  On top of that, in order to run Android you have several different methods of accomplishing this task, and one of them is by running from NAND, which basically completely wipes out Windows Mobile from your system. XDA member boonbing has put together a series of scripts based on the work of many people including XDA member DarkStone1337 and his work on RAM roms. In essence, Port-A-Droid will allow users to use, test, and replace Gingerbread roms that should be install on NAND, but that will load from the SD card and run via RAM. In essence, you will get the full NAND experience by still keeping your Windows Mobile OS completely intact. This is a very versatile tool that will provide any user with the means to run everything they want without the hassle that normally goes attached to it.

Please leave some feedback for the dev if you liked this tool.

What is Portadroid SuperRAM GB?
– Portadroid (a.k.a Port-a-Droid) SuperRAM GB is NOT A ANDROID ROM!
– It is a tool whioch I build mainly with scripts that enables SUPPORTED Gingerbread HD2 NAND or HTC Desire ROMs to be booted via SD card into RAM on the top of your stock WM6.5 ROM.

Focus – An Attractive But Raw Gallery Replacement

Focus is an attractive new app built by XDA members Liam Spradlin and Francisco Franco, the latter being well-known in the forums for his kernels. Focus aims to completely replace your gallery app with some neat tricks, but at a potentially risky time considering that Google has thrown its weight into the photo-organization arena. This is a first draft of the app of course, but we'll pitch it against its main rivals here, namely the popular QuickPic and the aforementioned Google Photos.     The first...
