Get the Camera Working on Android Ports for Windows Mobile

android-camera

While the Android ports that have been around for some time now for older Windows Mobile devices, such as the Blackstone, Raphael and Touch Diamond, and the fact that they have been fun to play around with, the feature most sorely missed from such ports is camera functionality.

Despite the ever-stabilising and speedier builds, this has been the most notable omission from the ports, which includes the popular XDANDROID project so far.

However, a few developers over on the HTC Raphael (Touch Pro) side of the forums have got some experimental drivers working, which should allow for the use of the camera on several Windows Mobile devices when running Android. The work is regularly updated and is currently confirm. . . READ ON »

Touch Pro Gets the Gingerbread Treatment.

android_gingerbread-150x150

While not really a part of the XDANDROID project, it is good to see that Android ports for the TP and the Diamond have not stopped. XDA member e334 points us to a thread by Neopeek, who apparently has managed to get a working port of Gingerbread for the Diamond. Needless to say that the title of the thread is pretty self explanatory and the rom is in alpha stage, so it is expected to have plenty of bugs. However, the dev states that many of the necessary functions (like wifi, voice calls, and more) are functional, so it mae only be a matter of ironing the bugs a bit here and there.

If you do decide to have a piece of this OS in your device, make sure that you leave some feedback behind.

Before continuing be aware of: This is an Alpha

QuickShutdown for WM Updated

ScreenShot4

XDA member petititi updated his app to version 1.5.3d. For those who don´t know, QuickShutdown is an application to turn off, restart or set to sleep your Windows Mobile device but without the need of .Net framework and because of that it is very fast and responsive. Updated version corrects some bugs, adds a short power button feature and let you choose if you want to lock device when screen goes off.

Control Panel Settings to Links for WM

Captures01

Are you into flashing ROM´s frequently? Then you will agree that creating shortcuts to your favourite programs or applications should an be easier or automated task for every time you flash a new ROM. XDA member dubidu took care of this and created CplLinks. This application goes through the registry key which holds the settings items and creates a .lnk file for each of the entries. Once installed, there are no messages, it only runs and creates the links.
The developer’s app only takes 11.5 kb and must be installed on main memory.

Final Version of XDANDROID Froyo Port for Windows Mobile Released

xdandroidraph1

It has been a long time coming, but XDA member babijoee and team have finally made public their final version of the XDANDROID Froyo-to-Windows Mobile port for devices such as the HTC Touch Pro and Diamond.

After several alpha and beta versions, the developers feel that this part of the project is finally ready to be known as the ‘final’ update of the port. This is due in part to the work of XDA member stinebd, who put many hours of work into the FRX01 package incorporated into the latest release, which offers increased stability and speed compared to earlier builds.

Also added, are the Chinese and Japanese IMEs and signed XDANDROID release packages.

HTC VR Hologram 3D

htctouchdiamondhologramro5

XDA member pauloke posted a long time ago the .cab file to get this nice hologram on your Windows Mobile device. It’s just a demo that will show you nice graphics combined with the use of the G-Sensor as a proof of concept.
It´s reportedly working in both Raphael and Diamond. Hope a developers can have a look on this and perhaps make it usable for more devices or get another useful use.
Here the video.
