- Put the files from my zip file (zImage, modules, startup.txt) in the root of your Internal Storage
- From this xda post, download the latest XDANDROID build.
- From the XDANDROID 7z file, extract system.sqsh, haret.exe, initrd.gz, calibration, conf/, media/, and (optionally) AndroidApps/ into the root of your Internal Storage
- From stinebd's rootfs autobuild site, download the latest rootfs, rename it to rootfs.img, and put it in the root of your Internal Storage.
- If you are updating from an earlier version of Android or just want to clear your settings, you can delete data.img from the root of Internal Storage.
- Run haret.exe and boot
- Touchscreen calibration values are stored in the ts-calibration file in the root of Internal Storage. To re-calibrate, delete the file and restart.
- The "end call" button takes the phone in and out of sleep.
- Android's "Menu" button is mapped to the top-left/Home button. The 5-way pad and the scroll ring both work.
- Android's "Home" button is mapped to the power button on top of the phone.
- Wi-Fi is working, although Linux sometimes crashes when WiFi is turned off.
- If you want to try Android 1.6: From this Android build, extract haret.exe, initrd.gz, system.sqsh, calibration, calibration_diamond, and the AndroidApps/, conf/ and media/ directories into the root of your Internal Storage.
- Touchscreen double-tap issue should be gone, big thanks to eval- and especially bzo
- HTC wired headset and 3.5mm headphones both work
- Hardware 3D is re-enabled (accidentally disabled it)
- 3-6-2010 Update:
- Bluetooth now works, big thanks to bzo
- Touchscreen should be improved
- Power-off now resets the phone instead of crashing
- 2-25-2010 Update:
- When WiFi is turned off the phone shouldn't crash
- 2-19-2010 Update:
- Power collapse now works, so power consumption should be much lower when the screen is turned off.
- WiFi should work, as long as you use a new rootfs from stinebd's autobuild site. If you tried to use WiFi in the last ~2 weeks and it failed, WiFi still may not work with this new rootfs and kernel. See this post for solutions.
- 2-17-2010 Update:
- Microphone works without having to make a call in WinMo
- WiFi still isn't working, but I'll post a patched rootfs soon to fix it
- 2-10-2010 Update:
- Hardware 3D acceleration is working under Eclair
- Brought in makkonen's fixes for battery status--they're rough, but better than being stuck at 5% all the time
- WiFi is not working at the moment, but I'll lean on the XDANDROID guys to get my fix in.
- 2-3-2010 Update:
- Linux is now using much more of the phone's memory: 180MB vs. 103MB, thanks to some patches from the Hero and Droid Eris kernel source.
- Touchscreen calibration is now supported with the Feb. 2 XDANDROID build, thanks to makkonen and phh.
- 1-27-2010 Update:
- Stability should be much improved
- A new touchscreen driver is included that is a big improvement over the old one, thanks to makkonen and phh. A calibration utility is coming soon. Until then, calibration is stored at the bottom of conf/eclair.user.conf, and you can put your WinMo calibration in there with this guide.
- The USB product ID has been changed in the hope that ADB will work on Windows. Try it out and post back if it works.
- 1-22-2010 Update:
- The power button (on top of the phone) is now mapped to Home, and holding it down will show apps running in the background
- Sound, data, and WiFi should all be working
- 1-11-2010 Update:
- Tested and working with Eclair
- Deep sleep should be working better (use less power)
- 12-26-2009 Update:
- The speaker and earpiece now work (but not the microphone)
- Screen backlight control works
- Thanks to makkonen's RIL fix, cell data works in Android without having to end the connection in WinMo first
- I made a change to /init that might help mjb94, hackman238 and others that have partitioned internal storage. If you were getting a "cannot mount" error on boot, let me know if this fixes it.

We do have a Google wave for Android--right now it's a cross between a wiki-status-report and chat room. I'm not sure how to give a link to a wave, but it's open to everyone and called "Android on HTC Windows Mobile Phones (Diamond, Raphael, Blackstone, Rhodium, Topaz)". If anyone wants a wave invite, PM me and I have a few to give out.
Enjoy Android, and if you need help or have questions, PM me or post here
