Gingerbread Shows Up on HTC HD2

December 21, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

While most Android devices have yet to officially or unofficially get their first taste of Android 2.3, Gingerbread, the people over at XDA Developers have just released a ROM for the HTC HD2.

What’s significant about this is the fact that the HD2 is a Windows Mobile phone. The ROM is based off the the Nexus One AOSP (Android Open Source Project) source code.

What’s working:

  • 3G/Data
  • Audio
  • Bluetooth
  • Wi-Fi
  • 720p video playback
  • Phone

Not working (yet):

  • Camera
  • GPS
  • Contacts sync
  • Auto backlight

While there are currently a few bugs in the system, the folks at XDA are generally pretty good about getting these things ironed out.

Users who would like to flash this ROM can download the current version here.

If you’ve tried this, tell us what you think and how well it’s working.
