Downloads

BASICSENSE
Installation
  • Use a Windows Mobile ROM that is known to work with Android (I am using Miri's WM6.5.x XtraLight for fast booting into Android)
  • Use a Radio version that is known to work with Android (I am using Leo_RADIO_2.12.50.02_2)
  • Download one of the Android builds above
  • Extract it to the root of your SD card
  • Start "\Storage Card\haret.exe" (in fact haret.exe is BatchLaunch)

Android autoboot
  • Install Gen.Y DualBOOT for starting Android into your Windows Mobile
  • Reboot your Windows Mobile
  • If Gen.Y DualBOOT is not loaded on Windows Mobile boot create a shortcut of the Gen.Y tool and place it under "\Windows\Startup\", then reboot again

Switching Android builds without data loss

At first: INVEST THE COUPLE OF MINUTES TO MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR "\Storage Card\Android\" FOLDER!!!
Believe me, even if the strategy is perfect, there are other reasons to fail like filesystems and others.
HAVING A BACKUP IS THE BEST STRATEGY!
  • Method #1 (the simplest)
    • Replace everything in your "\Storage Card\Android\" folder but keep "data.img" as this is where your settings and market apps reside in.
  • Method #2

Bluetooth devices working/not working
  • Working:
    • Ford car system

Benchmark results
Quadrant BASIC build: 1485
Quadrant SENSE build: 1478


Reporting errors/problems
To have a fair chance of finding errors/problems you report with my builds please posts the build you are using and it's version.
This helps to give faster support and improve the builds.

Forget about the screenshots, just the simple HTC Desire style.
For the BASIC build, just think of the SENSE build but without all the HTC apps, so without the pull down unlock slider and very minimalistic.

No, everything already uploaded. You get the download link AFTER you have uploaded something to MegaUpload.
Just tested it again, works like expected.

Any chance you could upload a version without the HTC theme? There are hardly any builds with the original light grey/green Android theme which I prefer.

Will check this out though, if only to see if the battery life is any good.

The same old well known limitations as ever:
- No 720p support with EVo Camera and Camcorder
- Neocore and some other apps can not be installed, currently investigating this with davlvik debugger.

Camera flashlight is working for me, Flashlight app is not. Will be exchanged in next version if I find a good flashlight app.
