Android 5.0 Lollipop ported onto the aging HTC HD2

HTC HD2 Lollipop

The HTC HD2 is perhaps one of the most versatile smartphones of the decade with its ability to run practically any operating system. It has the privilege of successfully running Ubuntu, MeeGo, Firefox OS, Sailfish OS, Windows RT as well as Android 2.2 Froyo. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise to the users that Android 5.0 Lollipop has been successfully ported onto the smartphone.

This feat was achieved by XDA user macs18max, who has been involved with the HD2 development for a long time now. The Lollipop ROM was ported on the smartphone using the 3.0.101 kernel. It is said that only the display and audio functions are working at the moment, but the developer promises to continue supporting the ROM in the coming days.

If you own a HTC HD2 in your drawer somewhere, now might be the right time to take it out and start tinkering around with the Lollipop ROM. The HD2 was originally launched with Windows Mobile 6.5 back in 2009 and is still a favorite of the dev community. And with this news, we don’t think that will change any time soon.
