Almost all HTC HD2 owners are closely monitoring the progress of porting the Linux operating system to their device and look forward to the actual release. After a small “victory” in the second half of May (when the device got a chance to play HD videos), there was a lull, and now, after a month, the developers warn about a new breakthrough.
The future Android on the HTC HD2 also runs as a port for other smartphones — with the help of the HaRET boot. But in conjunction with Qualcomm Snapdragon (the processor of the HTC HD2) it caused errors, and this led the enthusiasts into an impasse. Fortunately, the well-known developer with nickname Cotulla made a patch, which allowed to run any kernel of Linux, and consequently Android or any other distribution.
Of course, this is just the starting point, and there’s a lot to do, but, as it was noted by developers, this is a big step forward.
