Bringing you the first all-in-one, dual-boot diamond rom with XDANDROID. This ROM features a very light & optimized Gen.Y WM 6.1 core (which is accesible, more about that below) & the latest version of XDANDROID v2.1 (27.01.2010 at the launch of R0). The WM Core has all the basic stuff included (e.g. gps, bluetooth, phone, sms, alarm, camera).
This is an all-in-one ROM, meaning it already has XDANDROID cooked in, which is installed and configured during the first boot.
The second boot, u get the custom Gen.Y DualBOOT (made by myself), which allows u to boot into windows (to update the android build, testing, etc.) or boot directly into android using haret. (more info below)
I know XDANDROID is not yet perfect, but this is more of a proof-of-concept ROM, showing that it will be possible to replace WM on the Diamond.
Anyway, more info coming soon, i just wanted to make the announcement since the first tests have been succesfull, and booting etc. already works. Will post screenshots very soon..
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: Can I sync my WM contacts, appointments etc. to Android?
Sync them to google account (hardly any point in using Android if you don't have one), then when you set up Android, you'll be asked for your google account, which will automagically sync everything.
A: Nope, to boot Android we use HaRET, which is a tool that completely shuts down Windows Mobile, and boots into Android.
Q: Is this a multilanguage ROM? Which languages are supported?
A: The WM Core is WWE, however, Android supports multiple languages: Cestina, Deutsch, English, Espanol Français, Italiano, Japanese, Korean, Nederlands, Polski, Russian, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional)
