If for some reason your smartphone of choice is the HTC HD2, you'll probably be very happy that RunDroid has been created. Sure, the HD2 has some very capable and high-end hardware under the hood, but on the other hand, it runs Windows Mobile 6.5. Not even Windows Phone 7, but its ancient predecessor. Understandably, people have been hacking Android onto the HD2 for months and months. Up until now, there hasn't been a very easy (or stable) solution to dual-boot Android and Windows Mobile.

You download the app, use a file manager in Windows Mobile to locate and run it for the first time, and then set it to autorun at boot. Android needs to be on the SD card for this to work, and Windows Mobile on the phone's main memory, but that's the most usual setup anyway. 

The HTC HD2 is a touchscreen phone with a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a large 4.3 inch 480 x 800 pixel display, and plenty of other features you’d expect from a recent Android or Windows Phone 7 device. But the HTC HD2 ships with Windows Mobile 6.5. The app is called RunDroid. 

The first time you run the app you’ll actually need to use a file explorer to launch the app from within Windows. The app works by leaving Windows Mobile installed on the phone’s main memory, but running Android software from an SD card. If you have multiple versions of Android, you can use the latest version of RunDroid to choose between them.

Well now we have the same team take the HTC HD2 to the next level, by working on porting the NoDo update version of Windows Phone 7 to the HTC HD2.
