How long before we all look back at this thread with an ivory pipe in one hand and a stable port of WP8 on the HD2 in the other and chuckle pretentiously?
Just makes me wonder... considering the 'make it just about last the warranty period' approach to design in terms of quality and future-proofing of this unfortunate blood thirsty corporate world, how did HTC come up with the HD2? Did they mean for this device to be so versatile or was it the greatest mistake ever made as far as the hack-addicted user community is concerned?
The HD2 truly is a symbol of 'technology lifespan anarchy'. I feel like I'm flippin' the bird at the corporate powers every time I boot Android/WP7/Ubuntu etc. It makes me smile a little inside. Is this what drives all of the hack/mod community to do what they tell us cannot be done or Is it just me?
I just wish I could help more with the code side of things. Every time I have a dabble I delve in too deep and become overwhelmed by my lack of understanding. My biggest trouble is knowing where to start! Hats off to guys like Cotulla and the Dark Forces Team <-- (imagine the hat lifted)
Oh, lol, really, my wife just asked me what I was laughing about. Man I feel just a little like that. Like my friend calls me up and shows me his recently upgraded sensation4g to ics 4.0.4 from 2.3.5, hahaha, I was already on jellybean, same with another friend with a titan, I already ran wp7.8.
Sorry if this is ot but Thanks to Cotulla, Dft and all other devs keeping this soon to be 4 years old device up to date.
