So I will start from polyrhythmic's thread about porting Eclair Hero 2.1 to Kaiser.

A package with all files is available now. Thanks herpez

So Let's have Android 2.1 on Blackstone (HTC HD) Now.

I "Guess" this build is generic, Not sure which devices can it be run on.
babijoee, if it's generic, then "One For All, All For One".


I could successfully installed Android Flan 2.1 with SENSE UI on my Blackstone, and here are my results:

Working:
-Radio Fully Works.
-SMS Fully Works.
-Vibration.
-USB Charging and Debugging.
-Touch screen.
-Keyboard.
-Microphone.
-Front Speaker.

Not Working
-Wifi
-GPRS
-GPS
-Bluetooth
-External Speaker
-HTC Widgets. (Thinking of getting rid of them)
-Other things (Will be determined during the process of testing)

Issues:
-Very slow when booting first time. (Reason is Rosie UI Launcher, I removed it locally and increased Boot speed as well as the whole device itself clearly)
-If you feel that the device is freezed, no make sure cuz it's not. It's just doing SO MANY processes.
-This build needs patience, so if you are not patient please save your device from your anger and don't test it.

Download: (So all credits goes to polyrhythmic now, and we will use his files to make Android 2.1 work perfectly on Blackstone).

Thanks herpez for upload. herpez Tested it and it's working.

Installation:
1- Download the Package and exctract it to your computer.
2- IMPORTANT - Download the zip file that is attached with this post, extract it and copy ALL the files in it to conf folder in the build.
3- Copy the files to your SD-Card. (MUST use clean one)
4- So your SD card will look like this:

SD Card Root
/conf/*ALL CONF FILES IN THE ATTACHED ZIP
Haret.exe
initrd.gz
zImage
rootfs.img
system.sqsh
startup.txt


5- Run Haret.
6- Post your feedback !Important!

IF you're using a swap partition on your SD card DOWNLOAD THIS and rename it to eclairhero.user.conf

Note: This build is useless without creating a swap file, the .conf file will create a swap file, otherwise use a swap partition to store data in.

Screenshots and FAQ are to come.

Cheers,

Brilliant! But so poor that the essential HTC widget of Sense cannot run and it was unable to connect to the internet =(

So this is real duh, btw Android 2.1 is called Flan not Eclair.

i'd like to remind that this test builds are unstable, test at your risk and make a backup, i lost all data on my SD card after testing the first Eclair build (android 2.0.1).

509 Bandwidth Limit Exceeded on link "http://www.doublerebel.com/xda/eclairhero.user.conf"

I know that It is not your link, but just letting you know. Judging by the message I think it will clear up after the new year.

Good luck on the Blackstone port, your Topaz brothers are watching.

Does anyone knows if its possible to use files from both 2.1 and 2.0? That way it would be easier to port!

We could try to extract all the files and then compare it with the 2.0 release to see what were the changes
