Free Apps 4 Android !!!



I have started a new site called FreeApps4Android, It's the same as HD2Apps but it's for the Android phones (and for HTC HD2...)
Please visit the new site: http://FreeApps4--Android.blogspot.com and get all the apps and games for your phone!

Can the HTC HD2 run Android ?

1. Your HTC HD2 can run Android as well as Windows mobile!
2. You can have them both and switch back and forward between them.
3. No hard reset is needed to run Android, no windows mobile data is lost.

How to install Android on HTC HD2 ?

1. Install HSPL (Hard SPL)
If you have done this before, skip to the step 2.

For T-mobile users only, Read this first:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=6004271
And install this version:
http://adf.ly/428563/hspl3-pkg-exe
or this version (choose HSPL 2.08 on the drop down menu): http://adf.ly/428563/hspl4-exe

For Euro/International HTC HD2 only, Read this first:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=611433
And install this version:
http://adf.ly/428563/hspl2-run-exe


2. Upgrade your Radio.
If your radio version is 2.08 or higher, you can skip to step 3.
Don't know what is your radio version?
Go to settings tab, slide all the way down to "About phone"
click on "Software information".

To upgrade to version 2.12.50.02_2 download this:
http://adf.ly/428563/customruu-zip

3. Download the Android OS files here:
http://adf.ly/428563/android-cm72-237-zip
(you can try any other version you like...)

after downloading, copy the "Android" folder to the root folder of your storage card.
( root folder =  top level, main folder... )
it should look like this: Storage card/Android

You are done!

To run android you should first disable "Automatic adjust backlight". (and set the backlight to 100% ).
You will find this on windows mobile settings here: settings tab. click on "Sound and display", scroll down to "backlight" and click on it.

Every time you want to start using Android do this:
Go to the android folder on the storage card.
Click on the "CLRCAD.EXE" file, ( you will get no action on the screen but it's normal).
Click the "HARET.EXE" file to launch Android! (the first time may take up to 10 minutes to run)

When you want to go back to windows mobile:
Soft reset the phone or turn off the phone (long press the power button and choose to turn off) or remove the battery.

I used the package linked and have had a lot of fun playing around with Android today, but I am having a problem. I can download and install apps from the marketplace just fine, but when I try to install one of the ones from the http://freeapps4android.blogspot.com/ site it says something like "Can not parse this package". Is there something I need to install or do first to use these programs?

DJKAOZ said...

peace of cake work fine

HD2Apps said...

sorry about the RADIO issue. the link is fixed and you can download it now.

How do you install the apps from your new Android site on my Android HD2?

HD2Apps said...

Android uses .apk files (like .cab files for HD2)
save the apk file on your storage card and click on it to install.
if you get en error check that you have permission to install non-market apps. (settings > applications > unknown sources)
som...e games (like gameloft games) needs extra files to be placed on the storage card, but i have added a txt file with instructions to those games.

HD2Apps said...

the only thing that can brick your phone is installing the wrong HSPL version.
follow the instructions and you will be fine.

Graeme said...

Has anyone had this problem? When I make a call running android the screen blanks and the hardware buttons don't bring it back or disconnect the call. The only way I can hang up is to pull the battery and restart the phone!

mickyarams said...

I have installed the android on my phone and followed all the steps. It works great! I am really enjoying the android apps. For people having problems with ringtone, download an app called RINGER from the app market. download any tone from the ringer software and select set on the menu, that will assign the downloaded tone as the ringtone.

mickyarams said...

sorry, the app is called RINGTONE

Hi, managed to load it and playing with it, works fine at this end but no ringtone just vibrate. I'll go back to original Windows OS.
If I want to unistall then what is the safest method and do I need to do anything with the HSPL i.e do I need to revert the HSPL back to the original SPL?

@Mydo yes you can, after every soft reset on the android, the windows 6.5 loads normally.
(on android click and hold the power button > power off, wait 5 seconds and turn your phone on.)

i did exactly what u guys said...downloaded the us tmo version of hspl.. got the android zip... put it in storage...then went to android file...clicked on clrcad...nothing happend
then went to haret.exe and all i got was a launch script file or listen for network connections...what have i done wrong. someone please help.

Ibrahim said...

Well I moved the android file away from the zip file and put it directly in the storage and now all I get when I hit the haret.exe it takes me to an HTC green simble in the middle of the screen. Had it on for like 40 min. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.!

Jaroslav said...

Without HSPL you only can't flash new radio "driver"...
For instalation of HSPL you need to establish active sync connection... not only USB connection...
Allso for the radio upgrade you need ActieSync...
I am using:
/Stock WinMo Rom: 1.48.479.1
/HSPL: 1.42.HSPL
/Upgraded Radio: 2.12.50.02_2
/Android ROM: eVo Carbon Remix V0.3(hastarin r8.2)

All is just fine... :D

how to access my memory card or the main device memory folders like i do it from windows mobile. or with android you can't access the memory card or the device memory and explore the content.

HD2Apps said...

search the market for a file explorer, i recommend androzip or astro

I am using "Root Explorer" for accesing SDcard...
For the 3g try diferent android build...
Look at this forum: http://forum.xda-developers.com

Coldfish said...

Thanks a lot for the suggestions Hd2apps and Jaroslav. I got the memory card access successful but I tried couple of different builds of androids but unfortunately some had voice problem and somehad 3G.

If it's not too much to ask, can you please suggest me a particular build of android that works better. Can you please post a link to such android build to download please? I'd really appreciate that. I heard a certain build of froyo works good.

Thanking you guys again. Best wishes of Christmas to this website, it's family, fans and users all around the globe.

Right now i am using EVO Carbon Remix V0.4 (hastarin r8.5.1). All works fine. But i am Orange Slovakia not T-Mobile... No voice problem, no 3G problem... Are you TMo US?

GoToH*** > those who condemn hd2 n give an idea to buy other phone to have android. Hey do u think its bcuz of the phone bug? android is still new. plenty bugs just by itself. so dun keep blaming the hd2 is not good n not compatible for android. hd2 is the most powerful phone yet. just answer this if u can.

is there any other phone have the ability to choose what os they wanna run? can that phone run winmo 6.5? android? ubuntu? meego? windows phone 7????????

i already got a perfect android no major bug. no touchscreen freeze, workin cam w auto fcus, smooth gaming, gps working, usb tethering works, wireless connection runs smoothly. (i mention this bcus its the most popular bug when porting).

windows phone 7 is perfect. great os. nice live service. its the same as the stock version. so if thers a bugs, its becus the windows itselft. not because of hd2 limitation!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

I have installed android, was very easy just as it is described.
everything works fine. but when I am connected through
wifi and switch to Vodafone, I have no internet? until I restart the phone. but I love it. thanks for this version.

Hi! I have SPL-3.03.0000. Is there any hope for me...? :-(

Anonymous said...

Everyone needs to remember to check your apn settings when you get android installed.
if the apn is blank you need to set the server to the phone company you are using.
this could fix any 3g or phone issues.
also if you are getting the robot voice with the upgraded radio try rebooting 2-3 times, if that doesn't work turn of audible keypad phones.

that should fix it.
Also if you want a stable android version just go with cyanogen 6.1 nexus build
it is 99.9 stable.
everything works great

If the HTC logo stays more than 15 minutes just plug into computer and delete some files, because android will install files into sd card and requires about 1,26Gb

I have installed Android SD version and it was working the way I expected and I have installed NAND version in my HD2 and working extremely great. I see the lot of difference in performance for example browser and I was able to watch worldcup cricket in my HD2 because of android and the same website was very slow in windows 6.5. Accessing market is great and I get my emails faster because of auto sync. Total overall experience with installing Android Gingerbread SD and NAND(replaces windows 6.5) versions is wonderful. I am 100% satisfied with my phone and I have installed same thing in my brother's mobile too. I got installations from www.jayceooi.com

Do the steps as described with the spotify issue. Angry Birds, Pro Evolution Soccer and most other apps/games should work after you've done this.
