Triple Boot WP7, SD, and NativeSD on the HTC HD2

When we talk about the HTC HD2 nowadays, it is in shock and awe that it managed to survive yet another round of software updates from Windows Phone and Android. It has even been shown running Windows RT. It continues to exceed all expectations, as developers have figured out a way to make it triple boot.

XDA Senior Member mengfei has posted a tutorial that will help get the HTC HD2 to triple boot. It is not a very stable method and mengfei says that not everyone will be able to accomplish this. The method works by creating three partitions using a SD card and the internal memory. Then users install ROMs to those partitions. It’s a loose description, as the tutorial is actually much longer.

To get started users will have to make the partitions. Here is what users will need:

1 FAT32 Partition
1 EXT4 Partition
1 WP7 Partition
MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition (MTPW) using this to do those above.

In the tutorial, users will be installing WP7 first, then the other operating systems afterward. The whole process will take some time. However, once finished, the HD2 will be able to boot into any one of three different ROMs. Users have reported that the method works, albeit with some tweaks here and there to the process.

To learn how to triple boot on the HD2, go to the original thread.

On Qualcomm’s Damage Control: Marketing and Rumors?

The Heated Snapdragon chronicles seemingly see no end, and 5 months into 2015 we are still discussing the Snapdragon 810. This is unfortunate, because it is rather clear that the market is moving away from it, and it’d be better to simply forget about this black stain once and for all. However, many websites can’t let it go - and in some ways, we are one of them - but only in response to claims that we think affect consumers...

Project Fi Invites Are Rolling Out

Google is now sending out the first wave of invites to its new wireless service, Project Fi. Users are already signing up and have shared the process with us. So far, it is clear that Project Fi users can have their Google Voice number transferred across if they wish, which will automatically move their Google Voice credit over as well.   What we have learned so far is that after a Voice number is transferred you will lose some functionality, but you will...
