HTC HD2 is an amazing device. The Taiwanese company stopped selling it years ago, but it remains the hackers’ favorite tool for testing out new software. We’ve seen this Windows Mobile-based smartphone running an array of Android versions, as well as other platforms like Jolla (MeeGo).
Now it’s back in the spotlight again as one hacker managed to make it run Nokia’s custom Android ROM. That’s right, before you know it, the HD2 will be able to act as a “full-blown” Nokia X device.
However, the current build is everything but ready for prime time. It only boots and none of the functions are working, so there’s still work ahead until the functional release is out. In the meantime, you can join the conversation over at XDA forums and be the first to know when the final build is released. It will take few weeks but we’re sure these guys know what they’re doing.
