Default Haret.exe Android Install and Boot from Windows Mobile

*Update: These instructions now seem to be outdated. I will started an updated thread here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=648045
------------
(sorry I tried to post some live links, but the forum won't allow them cause I'm a new user, so this may not be as helpful as I hoped...)

I just spent some hours wading through the forums to find complete instructions for installing the newer android builds using the WM haret.exe linux booter (rather than flashing the entire phone and loosing WM) on my touch Vouge.

I am a bit of a newb, but since I did not find complete instructions, and had to figure some things out using trial and error I thought I would post what I did figure out here in hopes of helping others.

First ignore the install instructions here. sourceforge.net/apps/trac/androidhtc/wiki/HowToInstall . They are old and need to be updated.
  • Erase all previous android files from your sd card
  • Go here: sourceforge.net/projects/androidhtc/files/
  • haretinstall.zip
  • open the zip and place the andboot folder and all its contents on the / directory of your SD card
  • then download eclair252_androidinstall.zip
  • unzip eclair252_androidinstall.zip to get androidinstall.tar
  • copy androidinstall.tar to your sdcard /andboot folder
    (unnecessarily steps deleted - see below)
  • Then on your phone's file explorer run haret.exe from /andboot folder on you sd card
  • click run and immediately hold the volume switch up as linux boots
  • the boot menu appears. choose install
  • if the installation hangs hold volume up again, and choose quit

As I said I'm new at this, so my instructions may be off or misguided. If so please post with corrections. I just know I was looking for a guide like this and couldn't find one so hope this helps someone.

can you explain what is the benefits of doing it this way compared to the way its always been for me. it was as simple as downloading the sqsh package zip file from my favorite build here. witch included all the files i needed to run anroid. I copied the android folder from the zip file to the root of my sd card and simply ran haret exe. It used to be complicated but not now that most builds include all the basefiles needed for boot. I never had to hold any volume buttons or install anything. i probably look dumb for asking this.

Although I have not yet tried myself because I have a Polaris and WiFi is not yet working, my understanding is that NoMoRootFS makes more space available for the ROM and makes it easier for developers to roll out updates. In the thread for Myn's (most excellent) Warm Donut, there are several themes and updates that can only be applied to Rev2 if you have installed via NoMoRootFS.

I think that this step is not needed. The NBH files were made for flash your phone. If you run Haret is not needed.
Am I right?
If you like my work please consider

correct. with the OP method, the .nbh file is just taking up space. you never need to do anything with a .nbh file if you are using haret. OP, please fix and I will add to my list of FAQs, otherwise very informative. thx.

I can't get this to boot on my Vogue. The black Linux screen pops up & starts running but stops. The last line says...
[ 2.226233] Rebooting in 3 seconds.._

I've followed your instruction to the letter & can't see to get it to work. Anyone have suggestions?

Did you get into the install menu by holding volume up? easiest and quickest way to help you is if you describe exactly what you did - I know it is similar to the OP, but just give a step by step in your own words.
