Best Android 2.2 Froyo Kernel for HTC HD2

Android 2.2 Froyo on HTC HD2 cannot be done without help from the developers. Thanks to them. We are able to use Android on our lovely HTC HD2. Kernel is the heart of operating system, so getting the right one is very important. There are 2 main kernels ~ Hastarin and MDJ Kernels. Both of them are great and you can’t be wrong to use anyone of them.

Hastarin r8.6 Kernel Features

  • Packaged to be compatible with cedesmith’s new style initrd for easy installation on builds using it
  • CIFS support via a module
  • mac address patch for wifi/bt by mdebeljuh.
  • Built without support for ext3 and yaffs
  • Optimized for speed rather than size
  • Removed some debug features the average user isn’t capable of using anyway (dmesg/logcat still work)
  • G-sensor workaround by mdebeljuh & jdivic
  • Smartass governor added as default
  • Sysfs interface for optional under/overvolting (800-1350mV)
  • Optional overclocking (via SetCPU or similar) to 1536MHz – USE AT YOUR OWN RISK – it may damage your phone
  • Optional older battery driver with my patch to support the official HTC extended battery (eb version)

MDJ s8.0 Kernel Features

  • Default 998MHz (SMARTASS governor)
  • Interactive Governor
  • ОС (Max 1536MHz with SetCPU)
  • Classic RCU
  • SLUB
  • Patched Conservative, Interactive & Ondemand governors
