Whether or not this all-time thoroughbred can run the darn operating system, though, that’s another question.
But we might as we take our victories as they come as HTC’s big Windows Mobile release for 2009, the HD2, has finally had Android 7.0 Nougat hacked onto it. XDA-Developers member macs18max takes the cake for the update.
Unfortunately, while the HD2 does say that it’s running CyanogenMod 14 on top of the initial NRD90M release of Nougat, it may not actually be able to run much of it with its 448MB of RAM. Only the sound and Wi-Fi are working right while the display — which obviously is on — has its own issues to sort out. But Android 7.0 is definitely alive on a seven-year-old phone.
Comments have been pouring in on the thread that mainly share one sentiment: the HD2 just won’t die.
