So I'm getting more and more fed up with Windows Mobile as a operating system for my mobile phones, and finally the idea of this closed marketplace tipped me over the top. So I tried to first install Android on my HTC Touch HD and then later on my HTC Diamond. Sad to none of them have worked enough to give me a complete android operating system but I did want to point out where to go if you wanted to try it yourself. There's a lot of fluff out there and so it can be difficult to find exactly how to do it correctly.
So if you have a Orange HTC Touch HD aka HTC Blackstone you want to follow this guide to installing Android 1.0.
- Run haret.exe on your phone (under /tmp/boot)
If you have a Orange Touch Diamond or HTC Raphael or O2 XDA you want to follow this link.
- Android should now boot!
Best thing about these procedures is that if it works it doesn't screw up Windows Mobile so you can still use it after a soft restart. So you might as well try it and see what happens.
