If you have an HTC Touch Cruise (Polaris) running Windows Mobile 6.1, you may want to try out Android in this hardware.
The good thing is that you do not need to remove Windows, but you can just bootstrap Linux from Windows Mobile.
Just go to XDA Developers Forum below for further details:
or just follow the simple instructions below:
- Download either the 320×480 or 240×320 version
- Extract the content of the downloaded zip files to a temporary directory
- Rename default.polaris.txt to default.txt (rename or delete the original default.txt file) in andboot directory
- Copy extracted /andboot folder to the Root of your SDCard
- In your mobile phone, inside /andboot folder, Run HaRET, then hit “run” to launch android
- The first time, press Volume Up to start the installation and follow the menu instructions. If you don’t follow that step you’ll get a message : “/bin/sh: can’t access tty; job control turned off”
This won’t have Wifi, but you can enable it by using one of those two patches:
Sorry, the patches above won’t work with the version of the kernel used above. Please see comments section for Wifi (I have not tried it).
