Tip & How-To about Google Android

Use Android on Windows phones(preferably HTC)

You can run Android on Windows phones,although certain Sony Ericsson, Motorola and Samsung models that ship with Windows Mobile can run Android HTC phones aer preferable.HTC phnes like HTC HD2, Touch Pro, Touch HD or Diamond can be converted.

Note that there is a risk with this process, so following the instructions for installing Android on your chosen Windows Mobile device to the letter is strongly advised. It is possible to "brick" your phone, so ensuring that you have prepared correctly and followed the steps precisely is vital.

In order to install Android on a Windows Mobile device, you will need to find a suitable ROM for your handset. A ROM is a compilation of the Android operating system and all of the device drivers you will need to use your phone, camera, buttons, Wi-Fi, etc.

Again, these are available via www.xda-developers.com, where you will find a subforum for each Windows Mobile model. Choosing a suitable ROM can be difficult, so take a read through the subforum FAQ to find which one might be the most suitable for your needs.

You will also need a microSD card for the best results, preferably empty.


HOW TO

With your selected ROM downloaded (they're usually around 70-100MB), unzipped and copied to the root of your microSD card, switch on your Windows Mobile device. If you plan on running Android permanently on your phone, you might opt to perform a factory reset, achievable via Settings > Clear Storage.

When Windows Mobile is loaded, go to Explorer and find the HaRET.exe file on your microSD card. Select this to run - the phone will appear to restart and soon Android will be running on your Windows Mobile phone!
