HTC HD2 Hacked to Run Android (What Next?)

XDA member DarkStone1337 has hacked an HTC HD2, replacing the Windows Mobile OS with Android, raising the question: what hasn’t been hacked to run Android yet?

What makes this hack so interesting is that he has managed to mount and load the entire OS into the device’s RAM, making it run much faster than if it was installed on either the internal storage or a SD card. The actual data is saved to the phone’s internal storage so if the battery dies, your data doesn’t go with it.

This is definitely something to check out, especially if you have an old HD2 laying around that you don’t mind tinkering with.
