It's now running from SD card. NAND is not assumed to be supported by any way
(there is no native support for such storage medias inside NT, as well no goal to add such support - cuz NAND is too small for that purposes)
But SD cards are not really fast . . . unlike eMMC with 8bit bus inside native WP8 devices.
As well too often access to SD card may produce big power drain.

Drivers I would assume is another issue since with a new kernel the old development drivers are non functional... So its like running a new ver of android on an old device. With some work you can get it too boot, but then things like camera, WiFi, etc won't work.

But it is nice even with all the issues to see that in fact WP8 can run on old hardware. If if all it does is pose for the cameras.

ouyah!
UEFI @ MAGLDR!

now if only there is a dual/ quad core out there that resembles the HD2 as the software is advancing while the HW is aging.

thanks for your enthusiasm Cotulla

Does that means someday in the future we will have WP8 on old devices like HTC Titan?

well there are class 10 5~10MB/S. It's not hyper fast, but hey not that slow...

UEFI MAGLDR is really amazing. Wow...

Any chance of Windows 8 RT on HD2? I am kidding

Nah, counter-intuitively it's actually class 2 cards you want for running an OS from the SD card. Class 10 performs the worst in this case.

Dude, there are going to be a mountain of problems getting the thing actually to work completely and reliably on WP8.

There is a huge difference between getting it to sort of boot and sort of work (easy), and making it something actually usable (very very hard).

UEFI loader might be done, but ACPI is going to be screwed, power management screwed, WiFi screwed, Bluetooth screwed, phone modem screwed, graphics not/partially GPU accelerated, audio hw codecs, video hw codecs... list is gonna go on and on.

There is gonna be a mountain of work ahead if u want to make such a ROM actually self-hostable, good luck with that.
