XDAndroid for Touch Pro and Diamond Updated to Eclair 2.1
The XDAndroid project works on porting the Google Android operating system to popular devices traditionally running Windows Mobile. Although originally started to support this transition for the HTC Touch Pro and Diamond, the project has spread as support has grown, and users can now find Android ports for the Touch Pro2, Touch Diamond2 and Touch HD as well.
Recently, babijoee uploaded the newest XDAndroid build for the first generation Touch Pros and Diamonds, which brings a refreshing change from 2.0.1 to 2.1 in terms of Android version. Also included in the update are phaelox’s updated version of delta_foxtrot2’s ad blocker, updated effects for the navigational LEDs and improved startup configuration files.
Pick up the newest build in the project’s thread – and don’t forget that XDAndroid also lets you use our free Android app!
