    Hi!

    I've got the HTC HD2 with Windows Mobile 6.5 and I'm interested in the Artemis ROM, using Windows Mobile and Android.

    At the moment I'm looking around a bit, of course I already found some info...
    I found a tutorial with/for Artemis HD2 ROM Family Ver 44.0 Gen IV - can someone say something about it?
    I'd like the combination of Windows Mobile and Android, as canouna described it http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/23618-Best-Android-Phone?p=351014#post351014

    Anyways, I have to read through all.

    For Bootloader Android/Windows Mobile
    Any special ideas?

    For Windows Mobile Artemis ROM:

    The tutorial says I need HSPL(2) - I've had no other custom ROM before. For flashing the ROM I need custom_ruu.exe - that's it already?
    It also says that I in order to avoid a hard reset error (which sometimes seems to happen randomly) I should flash the "Stock ROM" - any info on that? Where do I get that?

    I have absolutely no experience with flashing cell phones, but I think it's the same game as with flashing bioses: risky but great if it works. :D

    I'm thinking about going the following way, after all I have read:

    1) save all my data (music, contacts, photos etc)

    2) make a dump of my original rom (to get back to original state - is this possible?)

    3) flash a Stock ROM

    4) Install custom_ruu.exe

    5) Flash the cell phone with Artemis ROM

    6) all should work... :rolleyes:

    So: warning, details, suggestions...everything is welcome. :)

    regards,
    ancestor(v)

    My french is a bit rusty, it's quite ok when it comes to understanding, but actually speaking french is hard for me when it comes to things more than exchanging names or asking about each other ;)

    I think I'll go after the tutorial I've found. Looks pretty good and it says the same as you say.

    From what I understand from "your" (french) tutorial you just install Android like an App, namely as a CAB. Is this sufficient? With this, I "boot" Windows Mobile and from there I start Android, somewhat like an emulation? Why not via boot loader?

    Which should work. M$ says no WM7 on HD2 but I don't believe...WM7 can't handle the 5 keys? -.-

    Thanks for your help so far. I'll have a further look around...and ask again, if there are questions ;)

    I'm now using Artemis ROM version 46.0, Generation IV - compatible with everything I'm using ATM, including my Navigation Software (which works on Windows Mobile and Symbian only).

    This was another interesting thing - flashing my cell phone. After flashing my computer :p
    Both was simple because the methods have already been worked out very well. But when watching the progress bar...and suddenly it stops and doesn't move :worthy:
    All went good, it continued after a few seconds :)
    Took me about 30 min for everything: downloading, installing, flashing - and those sounds in the background: your mobile device rebooting (you hear the vibration sound), usb connect/disconnect sound...sitting and waiting... :cool:

    To flash means to free yourself by freeing your technology. Away with all those limitations and restrictions! Free devices for free people!

    Thanks for the info, but I'm not going back to Windows Mobile ;) I already put many hours of work in Android - and it's so great...everything works, it's faster, more stable, there are billions of apps...

    IMHO Android is the best mobile OS you can use.

    Cool avatar btw :D

    Battery bug is most anoying bug in WM devices and almost all custom roms suffer from it. I play with WM since 2004 and since then I have found only one ROM that did not have that bug (it used to be a WM6.1 ROM). Thats why now I stick to the stock
    ROM.

    For ancestor(v): if you intend to use WM device than stick to xda-developers. You'll find everything there.

    Cheers

    From all the ROMs that I tried (meaning WM6, WM6.1, WM6.5) and these were not tried on a specific device.
