    Having also tried many of these I would have to say that my favorites from a practical ( use all day as my regular phone ) and still being supported by their creator are:

    MDJ FroYo HD v.4.6 … … because of the HTC Sense interface.

    Though once the USB disk issue is fixed I would be moving onto Android 2.3

    MDJ Gingerbread v. 1.0 RC5 RAM …

    Oh, do you know about … … quite handy site for your Android rom fix of the day.

    As for the Windows mobile rom to support Android I use ChuckyDroidROM …


    dandiest Desire Z I could not get working as it remained at the start up animation screen for an hour.

    P.S. great site you have.

      i am currently running mdj froyo v3.1 and there is significant delay in the screen rotation. Have you noticed this with v4.6?

    I Like DarkStone Build…..!!!
    Everyone Should Try This Build….. 🙂

  • KShock

    is your top ten list in order from most favorite to least favorite?

    • Something like that. But that my own opinion, yours might be different.

  • MySchizoBuddy

    Someone should create a build that includes these 10 builds on the SD card. So you can during startup tell which one you want to boot from.

  • 2011-03-14 Problems with: MDJ S8.0 Kernel Android 2.3.1 GRH55 Gingerbread

    Original v0.4 build from Jayce Ooi’s Paradise.

    Interface: user interface (colors, icons, layout, navigation…) is excellent. Much of v0.4 works very well.

    Following are some of the problems that I have found:

    Audio: Audible touch tones, Audible selection, Screen lock sounds do not work; Phone, YouTube…Media audio work.
    Camera: Native: black screen at startup; Message: Sorry! Activity Camera (in application Camera) is not responding.
    Camera: App: Camera Zoom FX: startup black screen; Message: Sorry! Activity Camera (in application Camera) is not responding. [Force Close][Wait][Report]
    Google Maps: GPS not working: “Seeking GPS satellites (0)…” & “GPS active (7)…” do not appear in the upper right hand corner of the main Maps screen; GPS works as described “…” on WM6.5.
    Google Maps: Navigator: does not appear on Google Maps on the main screen or on driving directions; app not available on WM6.5.
    GPS not working: GPS Status, GPS Test: won’t startup
    Screen: Apps – Phone, Solitaire Free Pack: app startup screen white; touching the white screen at any menu item location reveals the screen; OK until a new startup.

    When do you think they might be fixed?
    Where can I get the latest MDJ Gingerbread build for my HD2 SD card?

  • Jai

    is there any app to move ur sms in sim card?

    • Not sure, you can try to find it at Android Market.


    Will my HTC HD 2 still be able to run winmo after the installation of android OS, in other words is it interchangeable without re-installing winmo again.

    • Yes if you install SD card Android.
