Nope he would miss out on important permission and symlink settings which will likely make the ROM unbootable..

What about EXT partition images with ROM just installed, so we could just insert them? Would that work?

Guys, not so sad.. it's a 1st release and a work in progress.. I am sure we'll eventually find a way for all users to make use of it..

Next step I will work on is compatibility for haret and cLK users..

@ Xylo Any chance of uploading JB_PA build? Or is initrd.gz same for both?

PA is also coming soon

Not to long... You also had issues with Phoenix EXT method didn't you ?
Maybe the mount ext partition delay needs to be increased for some users... Don't know..

But with Xboxmod's cabs or a partition manager we can change that and resize both partitions, and thanks to that we're able to dual boot with Android.

Oh, ninja'd by Robbie P with 4 minutes while I was thinking of the answer :X He's not right with one thing now though - all new WP7 roms don't even encrypt the SD card.

@Xylo - Making it work with haret will make it compatible with WP7 too, won't it? The only thing we lack, making us unable to install this mod, for now is recovery :X

Expectations are so high... who would believe that for the 2009 (forever new) HD2, really the best phone ever.
You guys are awesome.

PPL dual booting either partition the sd card with the enlarged FAT partition (primary) or (as I do) use a separate card for WP7.

I am trying to see if i can port this ATM...
It boots with original initrd.gz.....Now to see where it is running from

Keep us posted... Hoping to see a PA port to try in ext4 alongside WP7

Are you sure it's MB, not KB?

Forgot to remove that damn swap script again

Well it's indeed kb, but if the rom becomes unstable.. first thing to remove is the swap script from system/init.d folder..

Thanks for the heads up and.. yes it is working, but for some users it seems unstable..

Maybe there is a way to modify the 'portadroid' stuff to make it work for wp7/haret users..

I also never used WP7, but I suppose you will at least need a different sd card for this to use it..

Sure that can't be done in Ubuntu? It would probably me messy (unless the meta-inf script can be easily changed to run in Ubuntu). If theres no other options I'll give it a try tomorrow

Swap/zram seems to be fine for me.

With WP7 - Not quite, currently the steps to dual boot WP7/SD android involves tricking the system into thinking that the sd card is smaller than it actually is, once the WP7 system takes in what ever size of sdcard it sees we can do whatever we want with the rest of the card, so the card in the end would need to be partitioned WP7 Part ||| Ext4 ||| Fat32 . I take that would require an adjustment to the current installation (if it could be installed) or is the fat partition not made reference to as mmcblk0p1?

SD port
Download portadroid 4 and install ics folder to sd card
Download and extract rom
delete system/etc/init.d/00_zram
Put meta-inf and system into sdcard/ics/root folder
open kernel folder and put bootsd into sdcard/ics/root folder
rename sdcard/ics/root/bootsd to sdcard/ics/root/boot
boot via magldr or haret
first boot takes 10 mins
second boot gives you boot anim (not portadroid screen)

WP7 seems unaffected

Go for it

Edit; As can be read later in the thread, this method does not install to sd-ext partition. So unless you are testing, please disregard the above as a method for booting via Native SD.
