Screen shot 2010-07-28 at 19.39.11

Are you an HD2 owner who invested 30 bucks or more in a licensed copy of CoPilot 8?  Are you now enjoying the benefits of running Android on your HD2?  Heard the news that GPS has been fixed by those clever devs for HD2 Android and thinking “darn! I wish my WinMo copy would work on Android….”?

Well, XDA forum member jonboyuk has discovered that it is possible to transfer your legally purchased copy for WinMo to Android!

You’ll need a legally purchased copy of CoPilot 8 for WinMo including license key and the latest version of CoPilot 8 for Android (now compatible with FroYo).  The XDA member states that you will need to deactivate your WinMo license and put it into your Android copy.

Auto-Start Android at WM Boot on Your HD2

hd2_corr

If you’re ready to take the plunge and run Android as your choice of day to day OS on your HTC HD2, then perhaps you would like to automatically start Android at Windows Mobile boot?

This was exactly the thought of XDA forum member GavTheStoner, and the dev has written a small app, DroidBoot to do just that.

The .cab file installs the app to Program Files/DroidBoot. It also creates a reg entry to autostart the app which launches ClrCad.exe and HaRET.exe at boot if found. If HaRET.exe does not exist on Storage Card/ or in Storage Card/Android the app will exit and Windows Mobile will start as normal.

If you wish to boot Windows Mobile, all you need to do is eject the SD before boot.

To download the cab file, and provid. . . READ ON »

Android Loader App Available for HD2

HD2

Following on from the hard work of various devs resulting in the success of being able to boot Android on the HTC HD2, XDA forum member and moderator mskip has written a simple program to make loading Android onto your Windows Mobile device a little easier.

The Android Loader app puts a link in your start menu that will run CLRAD.exe and HARET.exe (stored on your SD card) to load Android.  The unique feature of this loader is that it allows you to load Android if you have already booted up into Windows Mobile (rather than having to load Android before WM boot).

mskip has included an icon for the app so that you can add a shortcut to the program in your daily interface.  In order to load up Android, you will need to have yo. . . READ ON »

How to ‘Chrome’ your HTC HD2 Battery Cover

HTC-HD3-Chrome-Battery-Cover_634105064868810000

Device mods for most XDA members involves flashing a custom ROM to improve performance and customize the look of the device UI.  However, XDA member whitesites has taken the custom look to another level.

Whitesites has capitalized on the fact that the HTC HD2’s battery cover is made of aluminum and coated in black paint. Noting the slightly etched texture, Whitesites has modified the external appearance of his HTC HD2, by ‘polishing’ the battery cover to give a mirrored chromed look finish to his Windows Mobile device.

To help us do it ourselves, Whitesites has written a great tutorial with photos specifying the tools you will require, which you can follow step by step. Everything from . . . READ ON »

AutoBacklight Toggle for HD2

ScreenShot1

If you are tired of clicking through your settings menu and sub-menu to turn the auto-backlight on or off on your HTC HD2, why not try out XDA forum member react‘s little app?

It’s a simple application that toggles the auto-backlight function on and off.  Normally, the auto-backlight adjusts according to the light sensor, however there may be times when you want to turn it off completely or remain on indefinitely.

AutoBacklight will appear as an icon in your programs list, and clicking it changes the auto-backlight setting from on to off and vice versa.

To download the program or for more information, check out the application thread.. . . READ ON »

Android on the Horizon for HD2?

Screen shot 2010-05-17 at 21.06.15

Unfortunately Android is still a long wait for the HD2, but booting a linux kernel is a lot closer! XDA developer dcordes and other clever XDA peeps have managed to get a booting kernel together, capable of displaying full 720p video without acceleration.

Although this is still far from reaching the finish line, this is a huge step towards running Android on the popular HTC Leo which still runs on Windows Mobile. Many hardware drivers are missing (sound, graphics, phone…to name a few) for the linux environment and the HD2 gets extremely hot when running haret, plus expect to get a few random bluescreens.

However, let’s not take anything away from the work that’s gone into this so far.  O. . . READ ON »

Control CPU Speed of your HD2

v3_ss1

XDA forum member NetRipper has written a neat application that gives you the power to not only control the CPU speed of your HTC HD2, but also to overclock to some degree.

LeoCpuSpeed reads the CPU speed of your device every half second, and can stress the CPU to show 998MHz when it is at 768Mhz.  The app gives you control of the speed by use of a slider or pressing 768/998 presets, as well as the option to set speed at boot, and of course overclocking.

Currently, overclocking only works on AC power. When running on battery power, LeoCpuSpeed will apply the overclock but will this will be undone by the OS within 500ms.

LeoExtendedNotifications – Blink Keypad on Notifications

htc_hd2_slashgear_hands-on_17-384x500

Do you want more than your LED to blink when you miss a call, sms or email? Well check out LeoExtendedNotifications by NetRipper. The app blinks the keypad when there are notifications. NetRipper has made a few versions of the app for calls only, email only, sms only, or a combination of the three.  Only one version should be installed.

Originally posted by NetRipper

Here’s a list of ideas some people want me to add, but I don’t make any promises and I tend to spend my time on other things:

  • Disable notifications after X minutes.
  • Ability to select the type of notifications by configuration.
  • Ability to change the blinking sequence (speed, number of  blinks, etc).
  • Distinct sequences per notification
