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.

Google Photos ‘Unlimited’ Storage Reportedly Being Capped

When Google Photos was announced, many of us thought very highly of the idea. It seemed like Google had taken what they learned from G+ Photos and added some extra touches to polish the experience, making it something that more people were likely to actually utilize. Now however, the much-lauded 'Unlimited Storage' element may not be quite what it seemed. Here's what we can gather so far...   Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
