By now almost everything is working except for USB Mass Storage and camera but sure following updates will include fixes for that. It is important for developers to know about your feedback, this way all bugs you find can be corrected so please participate.

htc-hd2-android-and-ubuntu-builds-now-available_1

The HTC HD2 (Leo) has become the most multi-operating system capable device ever made. It can run it´s native Windows Mobile but also Android in SD and NAND versions, Ubuntu, Meego, Windows 98/95, and recently Windows Phone 7 as well.
XDA member demaxmeister has created an interesting poll to find out what members preferences are regarding their daily preferred operating system running on Leo.
The options are quite different between each other and some still have some bugs, but all are running smooth on what is considered the preferred device by developers, which has become a “must have” if you are deep into mobile moding.
Please cast your vote and let´s see what is the most used OS by XDA members. . . READ ON »

Interview with XDA Chef Laurentius26 – Pt. 1

Interview

For those new members on xda-developers, perhaps you don´t know about the work of XDA member Laurentius26. He has over 5 years of cooking experience for several devices. He started cooking for the Universal and worked together with XDA member Beasty. Their joint efforts were very important to pull Universal into Windows Mobile 6 and later 6.1. After that, some newer Chefs continued the work of Laurentius26, who had moved on to cook for the HD2.

Orb3000: Hi Laurentius26, thanks a lot for giving us this interview. First, I would like to ask you about the early times on XDA, when cooking was something that only few people were working at, when mobile world was much less crowded. How was your experience on those e. . . READ ON »

If you have an HTC HD2 you may know about the greatest news of the week. We now have the chance to have Windows Phone 7 running smoothly on our Leo, but what about live services?

After following the instructions, you will be able to use live services. The original poster mentions that you need to do the unlock/reg hack to make it think its a HD7 or else it will never download anything from market place.
If wifi isn’t working on the HD2, remove the sd card and try another.

Shake’n’Wake Mod for HD2

HTC_HD21

Although it was created some time ago, XDA member zzattack has created an interesting modification for the HTC HD2, which is worth bringing to the surface.

The Shake’n’Wake application does exactly what it says on the tin. Rather than relying on pressing the power button to wake your HD2 from standby, the app instead lets you do so with a quick shake, making full use of the phone’s accelerometer.

While being an interesting tool, Shake’n’Wake has some practical uses too. The app was originally conceived as a fellow member was looking for a way to wake the device in some way other than by pressing the power button, which had been somehow broken. In addition, some users have expre. . . READ ON »

How to Save Battery While Running Android on HD2 (Leo)

battery1

With the arrival of Android builds for the HTC Leo, we have seen that battery consumption is a problem not solved yet. XDA member Shatterv2 wrote a complete “how to” guide with tips to save battery.
Using SetCPU, which is an application for over/under clocking devices, and following the steps provided by the developer, your battery should last longer when running Android.
One good thing is that members are also posting their personal configurations as alternatives to test and decide which one works better for the Leo.

Increase the ‘Device’ Storage on Your Android HD2

snap20100728_134036

One of the exciting things about trying out Android on your HD2 is experimenting with all the weird and wonderful Android apps out there.

If you’re an HD2 owner who likes to install lots of apps and tinker around with Android, then you might be finding that 256MB of device memory just isn’t enough.  (Remember Froyo is the only Android OS that let’s you install apps to SD without requiring a hack).

This is exactly how XDA forum member Kev007 felt and he went and did something about it.  The XDA member has provided a fix to increase the size of the data.img file so that there will be more free space available once mounted.

Kev007 has posted various data.img files for 1GB and 512MB, corresponding to y. . . READ ON »
