DroidBoot

This is a small app I made to start Android / Linux at Windows Mobile boot.

Thanks to JMZtaylor and yozgatg for their dual-boots, I just got tired of clicking everytime I started my phone so made this.

I feel we are getting very close to a day to day usable version of Android! I already use it instead of windows mobile since about 6 days ago.

The .cab file installs the app to Program Files/DroidBoot. It also creates a reg entry to autostart the app which launches ClrCad.exe and HaRET.exe at boot if found. If HaRET.exe does not exist on Storage Card/ or in Storage Card/Android the app will exit and Windows Mobile will start as normal.

If you want to use WinMobile. Eject SD card before boot.

WARNING!! May cause Windows Mobile to become inaccessible if installed on a phone with only internal storage!

If it doesnt start and you get an error. you may need the .Net compact framework 3.5

Did you try installing the .net framework?
Did you get an error message?

Reuploaded on zshare.

To the people who say it doesnt work. Can you check in a registry editor if the value got added to init.
You are looking for:
Hkey_Local_Machine/init
And there should be a string value in there which says "Launch72" "Program Files/DroidBoot/Droidboot.exe" if its not there. That could be the problem.

Another idea is that it might not work on non WWE roms. Due to the storage card and or program files being named differently.

Why don't you just use the Energy ROM "Desire v5" from NRGZ its maybe way better than using an application, opinion
