The mod-friendly HTC HD2 now running Android 6.0 Marshmallow

HTC HD2 Marshmallow

The #HTC #HD2 smartphone has run several mobile operating systems in its day. The handset which was originally released in November 2009 or about six years ago, was launched with Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional. However, the device went out of Microsoft’s support cycle soon after that, but still remained quite active in the developer community.

Testament to that is this new report which talks of the HTC HD2 getting an unofficial Android 6.0 Marshmallow port via CyanogenMod 13. This is quite incredible considering how the phone has been forgotten by HTC and most of its original users even.

Naturally, the ROM is far from functional and appears to have a couple of bugs of its own, but that’s not much of a problem considering how this is somewhat an experimental mission and not exactly meant to be commercially available.

This goes to show that a device that is six years old can also run the latest and greatest software out there. It must be noted that the HD2 has already run several iterations of the Windows Phone OS unofficially. So the feature set is not just limited to Android ROMs.
