Dual-Boot Windows Phone 7 and Android on HTC HD2
The HTC HD2 has massive appeal these days for being able to boot various platforms with ease. Of course, when all the dust has settled, we imagine many users are rolling with either Windows Phone 7 or Android on their versatile HD2s. If you’re finding it difficult to decide which OS to boot, why not opt for a dual-boot solution? Darrengladysz, from XDA-developers, has provided a lengthy tutorial on how to do just that.
For starters, you will need an SD card adapter/reader and partition software. Also, two microSD cards are necessary – 8 and 16GB, for example. The former will enable you to obtain a smaller partition for Windows Phone 7, which will then be copied to the larger memory card for use in the HD2. Unfortunately, both systems can’t run from NAND memory, so WP7 has priority while Android falls back to running from SD. Once you’re prepared to take the plunge , head over to XDA-developers to get the full instructions, which includes multiple methods of accomplishing the task at hand.
Note: please take caution and understand that there are always risks involved when tinkering with devices to this degree. Again, thoroughly read all instructions and notes on the XDA thread.
