Okay I'm a lurker on the developer thread and I thought it best to create a separate topic where everyone can talk about it (or complain that people can't shoehorn an OS on a device fast enough for their liking despite the fact that people are doing it for free basically) without all this "DEVELOPER DISCUSSION ONLY AUGUGHGH" "but we don't know where else to post about it"-ism

so this thread is for the non-developer discussion of said project:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=578575

(won't let me past "outside links"(?) cos I'm a n00b for some reason)

so there's no excuse now for anyone who posts "when is it done?" in the other thread

Also, a few pointers since some people don't get it and I'd rather save a developers/non-developers civil war thing.

How long will it take? - You're looking at about a year at least. Remember, it's installing an OS on a system that isn't meant to even have it. It's going to take a hell of a lot of time to guesswork and muck around with this stuff.

(all the people moaning on engadget re: the US HD2 launch being all "HTC release an android update right now " and then being all "OH XDA WILL SORT IT OUT" (because apparently xda is their overnight miracle machine) annoy me something chronic for this reason.)

remember too that these people are more or less doing this for free.

Can't you just install the Nexus/Supersonic/etc. rom on there? - No.

from what I understand of the whole thing (I'm not a developer so take this with a pinch of salt) there's an awful lot of different code and such on these things which means it isn't as easy to just "install" it on another OS. It's like asking why you just can't fit a jaguar engine into a VW beetle. It could work, but there'd be a lot of work and rerouting etc. to be made and even then it would need a lot of tuning and sorting out.

Is it ready yet? - No. You will know when it's ready.

What's happening at the moment? - From what I've read of the whole thing they're trying to iron out kinks with the linux Haret thing thats going to run Android. After they've got it to boot, they're going to have to try and get android working with the HD2. This is why it's taking so long.


so yeah.

hey??
yeah but..

this is the xda DEVELOPERS forum

and this is the HD2 DEVELOPEMENT section

so i guess the linux android development thread does what its supposed to !!

i know its frustrating and you like me want android on the hd2 but to be honest i i find half the fun is the bloody long wait and the small progressions that are made, thats how we learn.

=====PEACE=====

edit >> ok looks like this thread was useful after all - my wrong !! ..

**shrug**

A mod can move it elsewhere if needs be, I was just getting sick of all the feuding going on between people who wanted to talk about it and the developers yelling at the people who aren't posting about developing and thought it best to make a separate thread so non-developer people can talk about the project and developer people can drop in and give advice

yeah
actually you got a point.
theres a fair ammount of flame grill on the other thread that does get annoying

i subscribe to the other thread so i get an instant email for every post and i get my email on my hd2 just as you would a text message so it can be a pain.

Ha finally found again this topic.

I am wishing you all my best to port Android to the HD2 because with all the **** around WinMo 7 comptability, you look the only one able to save the HD2 in the future!

I really hope everyday that Android will be working on our HD2...

Btw, the HTC Desire is going to be out soon, and it has the same specification than the HD2... Does it increase the chance got Android on our HD2?

Good luck and all my best !

Too bad we're stuck with low level developers who can't get it done. We need real developers who actually know what they are doing.

Like Android would be wounderfull to have WebOS runing on HD2...a beautifull simbiose with outlook and Itunes integrations.....and push notifications...and light apps for everythink.

I dreaming with that.
