So, you’ve though about trying android on your HTC and you’re worried you’ll destory it. No worries this is a non-evasive hack and works really, really well on my phone.
First empty a micro sd card, then visit http://code.google.com/p/vogue-android/downloads/list and download the following files.
Extract all files in basefiles-xxxx.zip to your sd cards root directory. Then you will also need to copy over the image file and rename it system.img
You are basically all set at this point, put the msd card in your phone and open file explorer. Choose to run haret.exe it will ask if you want to use settings.txt and click run.
The screen will get the tux penguin in the upper left as android loads.
Your buttons are basically setup as follows:
top button, normally for turning on and off the screen is for unlocking the phone and opening menus within the phone.
camera button, this is the back button within android, if you want to close a screen hold it for around three seconds and release to be returned to the home screen.
Green Button, this is the same as it was before trying android, it will pull up the dialing pad, and contacts or it will answer a call.
Red Button, this is the end button basically. When on a call it ends your call. Other than that when you press it at your home screen it will lock your phone and turn off the screen. Tap the top button twice to wake and unlock.
From there it’s a crap shoot, I’ve gotten tons of stuff to work just by installing it via marketplace.
As a side note, I’m a verizon customer and all of my included features work fine through them.
