Well I don't know if that causes an issue or not, but there's no need to have an unused 200mb partition on the card... might as well add that to your android partition. Is both your android and wp7 partitions primary? Which method did you use to partition your card?

Maybe try formatting your android partition with 32kb sectors... I've heard of builds having issues when you use 64k sectors. You said you were using the desire z build? Did you look through the build thread for anyone experiencing the same issue?

i've had this issue before with phiremod's rom.
This is what i did:
1. create android partition and only boot to android at first. no wp7 partition. setup hd2 with android.
2. in partition manager i created unallocated space on my harddrive and copied the android partition to it.
3. now delete all partitions on sd card and create partition for wp7. leave space on sd card to copy back the android partition to it.

resize WP7 partition
is it possible to resize the WP7 partition after WP7 and android has been installed. I find that I'm using WP7 more and want to allocate more space to it. Is it possible to increase the unformatted part and and reduce the FAT32 portion of Android

Magldr 1.13
Magldr 1.13 was just released.

I am not sure if this affects us having wp7 dual boot hd2 all that much.

The battery, reboot when connected and data errors with usb mass storage copy seem to have been fixed.

Correct me if I am wrong but apart from this it seems that there will not be any changes for us with wp7 as the nand os and sd android. CWR is for Android in Nand and not on sd.

If I am incorrect, please let me know and I will update the 1st post.

Also, looks like wm6.5 will be nand and not sd

IMPORTANT: I JUST FLASHED MAGLDR 1.1.3 and Flashing magldr 1.13 will NOT result in having to reload everything, including wp7.

DO NOT FLASH USING DAF but enter bootloader (Rainbow screen at startup) and run ROMUpdateUtility.exe

Thanks

No, its not affecting people dualbooting at all. What are you talking about wm65 being on nand, not SD? There's no nand version of wm65 out for magldr, and the SD version isn't released yet. Nothing has changed as far as cotullas plans for that, afaik. If you know something I missed, please let me know.

From Cotulla's Magldr 1.13 thread in Nand Android Looks like wm65 is in future development but on Nand not sd I like the look and feel of wp7 but miss my wm65 apps ...

EDIT: Seems there is possibly an sd wm65 after all http://pocketnow.com/windows-phone/d...f-wm65-for-hd2

Future developerment :

*planned to add Haret's startup.txt support for Android SD
*fast boot support (?)
*support of fixed partitions layout with ability to reflash any partition
*WM65 NAND boot with any rom (?)
*WM65 NAND boot with special designed roms for MAGLDR boot.
