HTC Universal Gets Android ROM With CyanogenMod 7!

htc-Universal-android

If you are impressed with the HTC HD2 in terms of the developments that have been possible here at XDA, here’s another case of great development happening on legacy hardware. For those of you too young to remember HTC Universal-in 2005–was the first 3G device ever released with a VGA 3.5″ pivoting screen. It came originally with Windows Mobile 5.0.

Now thanks to the terrific efforts of XDA member notime2d8, and some other members involved, Android arrives with the CyanogenMod 7 for Universals with 128Mb (shame for those with 64Mb). According to Dev, everything is working except for the WiFi and the modem/phone functions.

Porting Android To The Good Ol’ HTC Universal

IMAG0013

Perhaps the young ones won´t remember the great HTC Universal, the first 3G device worldwide, released back in 2005 with an unique form factor similar to a micro laptop. Well, the Universal still has a very active community and from it we´ve found that Android is on the process to being ported to it. XDA members notime2d8 and orzech2111 are leading this project that started almost one year ago.
I have spoken with one of the developers involved and this is what is happening now:

What is working so far:
– Lcd
– Keyboard
– SD card slot
– Max1587a voltage regulator
– Asic3 Buttons
– Automatic screen rotation
– Touchscreen
– Bluetooth
– Usb host

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 »
