Free Apps 4 Android !!!



I have started a new site called FreeApps4Android, It's the same as HD2Apps but it's for the Android phones (and for HTC HD2...)
Please visit the new site: http://FreeApps4-Android.blogspot.com and get all the apps and games for your phone!

Can the HTC HD2 run Android ?

1. Your HTC HD2 can run Android as well as Windows mobile!
2. You can have them both and switch back and forward between them.
3. No hard reset is needed to run Android, no windows mobile data is lost.

How to install Android on HTC HD2 ?

1. Install HSPL (Hard SPL)
If you have done this before, skip to the step 2.

For T-mobile users only, Read this first:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=6004271
And install this version:
http://www.fileserving.com/files/Rw4WmF4FQM/HSPL3_PKG.exe
or this version (choose HSPL 2.08 on the drop down menu): http://www.fileserving.com/files/ZKVPwc_Eiw/hspl4.zip
For Euro/International HTC HD2 only, Read this first:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=611433
And install this version:
http://www.fileserving.com/files/SCPgyv7iza/HSPL2_RUN.exe


2. Upgrade your Radio.
If your radio version is 2.08 or higher, you can skip to step 3.
Don't know what is your radio version?
Go to settings tab, slide all the way down to "About phone"
click on "Software information".

To upgrade to version 2.12.50.02_2 download this:
http://www.fileserving.com/files/ku_PK5RnZi/CustomRUU.zip

3. Download the Android OS files here:
http://bit.ly/zl1b0m
(you can try any other version you like...)

after downloading, copy the "Android" folder to the root folder of your storage card.
( root folder =  top level, main folder... )
it should look like this: Storage card/Android

You are done!

To run android you should first disable "Automatic adjust backlight". (and set the backlight to 100% ).
You will find this on windows mobile settings here: settings tab. click on "Sound and display", scroll down to "backlight" and click on it.

Every time you want to start using Android do this:
Go to the android folder on the storage card.
Click on the "CLRCAD.EXE" file, ( you will get no action on the screen but it's normal).
Click the "HARET.EXE" file to launch Android! (the first time may take up to 10 minutes to run)

When you want to go back to windows mobile:
Soft reset the phone or turn off the phone (long press the power button and choose to turn off) or remove the battery.

  30. I have installed the android on my phone and followed all the steps. It works great! I am really enjoying the android apps. For people having problems with ringtone, download an app called RINGER from the app market. download any tone from the ringer software and select set on the menu, that will assign the downloaded tone as the ringtone.

    ReplyDelete
  31. sorry, the app is called RINGTONE

  67. My hd2 led keeps blinking all the time..:S anyone knows how to fix this..? would be great!!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Without HSPL you only can't flash new radio "driver"...
    For instalation of HSPL you need to establish active sync connection... not only USB connection...
    Allso for the radio upgrade you need ActieSync...
    I am using:
    /Stock WinMo Rom: 1.48.479.1
    /HSPL: 1.42.HSPL
    /Upgraded Radio: 2.12.50.02_2
    /Android ROM: eVo Carbon Remix V0.3(hastarin r8.2)

    All is just fine... :D

  79. GoToH*** > those who condemn hd2 n give an idea to buy other phone to have android. Hey do u think its bcuz of the phone bug? android is still new. plenty bugs just by itself. so dun keep blaming the hd2 is not good n not compatible for android. hd2 is the most powerful phone yet. just answer this if u can.

    is there any other phone have the ability to choose what os they wanna run? can that phone run winmo 6.5? android? ubuntu? meego? windows phone 7????????

    i already got a perfect android no major bug. no touchscreen freeze, workin cam w auto fcus, smooth gaming, gps working, usb tethering works, wireless connection runs smoothly. (i mention this bcus its the most popular bug when porting).

    windows phone 7 is perfect. great os. nice live service. its the same as the stock version. so if thers a bugs, its becus the windows itselft. not because of hd2 limitation!!!!!!!

  81. Hi! I have SPL-3.03.0000. Is there any hope for me...? :-(

    ReplyDelete
  82. Everyone needs to remember to check your apn settings when you get android installed.
    if the apn is blank you need to set the server to the phone company you are using.
    this could fix any 3g or phone issues.
    also if you are getting the robot voice with the upgraded radio try rebooting 2-3 times, if that doesn't work turn of audible keypad phones.

    that should fix it.
    Also if you want a stable android version just go with cyanogen 6.1 nexus build
    it is 99.9 stable.
    everything works great

  89. I have installed Android SD version and it was working the way I expected and I have installed NAND version in my HD2 and working extremely great. I see the lot of difference in performance for example browser and I was able to watch worldcup cricket in my HD2 because of android and the same website was very slow in windows 6.5. Accessing market is great and I get my emails faster because of auto sync. Total overall experience with installing Android Gingerbread SD and NAND(replaces windows 6.5) versions is wonderful. I am 100% satisfied with my phone and I have installed same thing in my brother's mobile too. I got installations from www.jayceooi.com
