xdandroidthumb

It looks like this has been some week for Windows Mobile devices in terms of getting back on the spot light. Just as you were thinking about going back to Android goodness on your Sensation, members that have been here for 2 years or more will certainly realize that this is indeed a piece of good news, good enough to unbury your old Raphael and your not-so-old Rhodium. It looks like XDA member arrrghhh and his team have finished adding the final touches to their Froyo ports for both aforemention devices. The porting projects of Android onto Windows Mobile devices is nothing short of a fantastic proof of how far our devs can go if they put their minds on things. In this case, the dev states that this port can be used as a da. . . READ ON »

Tutorial: How to Make or Edit CHT Widgets for Windows Mobile

poytest2

How about a Windows Mobile article for a change? XDA member poyensa posted a great tutorial explaining how to create or edit any Cookie Home Tab 2.0 widget. Basically, the original poster compiled the how to´s including quotes from developers but on a simpler way to understand the whole process of editing/creating widgets. The guide also includes an extensive, and very well documented, way to solve most common problems. You will find a section where you can create your own widget as well.
The developer invested a considerable amount of time on this compilation and surely your feedback will be well received. Olé!

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

VGA Rockbox Android Port Now Available

rockbox400

Are you an avid user of Rockbox? Here’s a bit of background – Rockbox is an open source firmware replacement for digital audio players and includes a wide ranger of sound settings sometimes not available from your device’s original firmware.

If like XDA forum member JesusFreak316 you are fan of Rockbox and want to use it on your mobile Android device, then you’ll be pleased to hear that multiple resolution versions have been ported over to Android and precompiled into ready-to-install apk’s.

However, JesusFreak316 found that a VGA version was lacking and so decided to compile this version for all VGA device owners running the Android OS.

Currently, there is a font size iss. . . READ ON »

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.

CyanogenMod-6 (Nightly) Now Ported for the Touch Pro

cm6

XDANDROID project has grown a lot over the past few months. The devs have been doing a fantastic job in trying to iron out all the bugs in the ports to have better, more stable Android OS on devices not meant for it. On the other side of the coin, you have the infamous CyanogenMod Android roms, which are rated among the best for multiple devices. The time has now come to marry these two fantastic developments. XDA member vatoloco has just released a port of a CM-6 Froyo – Nightly build for the Touch Pro (aka Raphael). While it is still on experimental state, there have been good reports about it so far. However, if you are adventurous enough to try it, bear in mind that it will have some bugs. Other builds have also been . . . READ ON »
