Hi,
I've developed a tool for dual/triple/quadro/... booting the NativeSD-ROMs (Android or FirefoxOS) from Windows Mobile 6.5

How to use it:
Extract the zip-file and copy the "WinAndroid.exe" in the NativeSD-directory on your SD-Card.

After starting it, the tool automaticaly analyses the NativeSD-Folder and it shows the installed ROMs. Then you can select the ROM (in the directory "/NativeSD/") or the Recovery (in directory "4EXTRecovery", "twrp2", "twrp2.3.3.0.ex" or "recoverytytungbackup") and click on "Boot selected" to start it.

V5 and V6:

Technical informations:
  • ROM-Start: It automaticaly copies the two files zImage and initrd.gz to the "NativeSD"-directory and starts clrcad.exe and haret.exe in the same directory.
  • Recovery-Start: It starts clrcad.exe and haret.exe in the "4EXTRecovery"-, "twrp2"- or "twrp2.3.3.0.ex"-directory.
  • Last booted Android (default selected): It starts the Android-ROM, which was started the last time. It is the same as "ROM-Start" without copy the two files. (since Version V2)

Tip:
  1. To start the tool with one click, generate a link in the startmenu of Windows Mobile.
  2. If you use the Classic-SD-Methode (not NativeSD-Methode), then you can download the WinAndroid-Classic, extract it, copy the EXE in the directory of your Classic-SD-Android, generate a link in the startmenu of Windows Mobile and start it...

Warning:
It's the first release and it can have some bugs... you should make a backup...

I've tested it with NexusHD2-JellyBean-CM10.1 (4.2.2), NexusHD2-JellyBean-CM10 (4.1.2), NexusHD2-ICS-CM9 (4.0.4) (from tytung), PACman (4.1.2), AOKP(4.1.1) (from Xylograph) and CM7 (2.3.7) (from c1cl0n) and FirefoxOS (Boot to Gecko) (from feherneoh) ROMs with htc-WinMo6.5 (with .Net-Runtime 3.5). Because it is a .Net-program, it is possible, that it works on a Windows Phone 7.x too... someone should test and report it...

Thanks:

Thumbs up Multiple Android-Starter (WinMo 6.5 + NativeSD-Android) works!
Thanks tested good on Windows Mobile WM6.5. Recognised all 11 of my NativeSD folders and booted into the one I selected (PAC). Renamed folder to 4EXTRecovery and it recognized and ran that.
Would be nice to be able to sort in alphabetical order.
Good job - much appreciated!
Cheers

Greeting.

o82239 Fantastic thanks, V2 works well and it is nice to see the ROMs are sorted. I have started suggesting to some OPs that they add it to their first page.

This is a great first contribution to xda! Welcome! If you want another idea for a useful little WP program I would like a button (with suitable logo) that would run 4EXT Recovery. (I know I can run WinAndroid and then select Recovery but I am lazy! I already wrote a WM NativeSD-mscr but it does not have a nice logo!)

If you want to move your thread we can ask Poyensa or one of the other moderators to help. I agree that "HD2 Android Q&A and General" is probably not the right place. The question is what should it be under?
  • HTC Leo: HD2 > HD2 Android > HD2 Android Themes and Apps
  • HTC Leo: HD2 > HD2 Windows Mobile 6.5 > HD2 Windows Mobile 6.5 Themes and Apps
  • HTC Leo: HD2 > HD2 Android > HD2 Android SD Development
Although this is a Windows Mobile App, as it relates to Adnroid SD Development, I favour that but as Poyensa reads this thread I am sure he will guide you.


Cheers
Tom

Yes very nice start up into XDA, thanks a lot !!!

I would like to add something to the wish/idea of Tom, in the Android SD developement section BoxmaX |23 |10 | BoxmaX.S3.5.v10 created a different approach for his ROM and clrcad and haret are not in the NativeSD folder but in the "Direct" folder on the root of the sdcard.

I don't know as I'm not a Hacker whether it would possible for your little tool to run a search and/or filter on folder containing clrcad and haret ?
This output could then be used to create a list/ui and to start the ROM the user just wanna use.

Hi,
thanks...
Try the "Classic"-Tool (see new tool [with icon ] in the first post), witch I've developed some month ago and now updating it with some improvements of the NativeSD-Version. You can copy it in your folder of each Android, make a link in the startmenu (perhaps rename it to the Android-Version, like "Recovery") and start it...

What do you think about the "Classic"-Version in the first post?
I think, that we have a performance-problem, if we scan the SD-Card on every start of the program. I've a 32GByte-SD and very much files (car-navigation-software, geocaching-software,... with much map-files...) and it can take some houres to scan it. Therefore, to perfom it, I have to save the locations of the scanning and have to read it at start... but then I need an storage (database, registry, file,...) and I dont like this... I love tools with no trash: only copy it, try it and if it is not good, delete only one exe (no files, no database, no registry on place HKCU/HKLM,... which were created from the tool). Classic-Version is better, isn't it? You can copy 20 or more Classic-Versions in different folders and link them to the startmenu and rename the startmenu-icon.. What do you think?

I would be pleased to receive other feedbacks. Thanks and greetings...

LinChina please look at the programs that I listed in the Wiki Android_Loader page I wrote
http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki/Android_Loader
For example I use Android Loader as I have select the folder where your Android files are to be in NativeSD.

Hi Tom (Szczepanik),
I've a litle request, because you have so much installed ROMs. Is the handling ok (scrollbar or touch and scroll)? What about landscape-mode? Can you post some screenshots?
I've only tested this in an emulator and this is not a HD2...
Is the Classic-tool (with icon )ok for your recovery?
Greetings and thanks for testing
Klaus
