We're approaching the end of an era -- the legacy of Windows Mobile
handsets getting spotted running some open sourced OS or another shortly after their release. With Windows Phone 7
on the horizon the HD2
will surely be one of the last, but you can extend that grand tradition just a bit longer by installing your choice of Ubuntu Karmic Koala or Android 2.1. Those builds we reported on earlier
have been made available for general consumption and, while installing them certainly doesn't seem to be entirely
risk free, neither of them touch the phone's internal flash, so you're never more than a reset away from the comforts of WinMo. If you're feeling adventurous this weekend, both downloads are on the other end of the source link below.
