Normal SD card Android development is slowing down after NAND Android and Windows Phone 7 came out. However, there is a way to run Android on SD card with NAND Android or Windows Phone 7 installed on your phone. It can be done with the help of SD MAGLDR Android ROM. Normal SD card Android cannot run on current MAGLDR without modification. However, most of the SD Android ROM chefs do not support it officially. And left only few that current still developing and supports it through SD MAGLDR method. Here are the top 3 SD MAGLDR Android ROMs that I tried based on CyanogenMod 7, HTC Desire Z and HTC Desire HD builds.
NAND Android with ClockworkMod Recovery and A2SD+ is the best Android ROM for HTC HD2. NAND Android is better than SD card Android because it uses less battery power and noticeable faster. ClockworkMod Recovery eases to restore and backup while A2SD+ solves less internal storage issue on HTC HD2 by installing applications on SD card. CyanogenMod 7, Stock MIUI, HTC Desire HD and HTC Desire builds, pick you that you love…
SD card Android is not finished yet. Thanks to several xda-developers like copenhagen. They are still making Android ROM for SD card. Copes CyanogenMod 7 SD MAGLDR Android ROM is one of them. It is based on Android 2.3.2 Gingerbread and using AmeriCanAndroid HK853+ Kernel. And good news ~ it is runnable on MAGLDR. Perfect combination with Windows Phone 7 (for those still use it).
JDMS Ultimate v1.6 is the build that I am using daily. It is based on Ultimate Droid 2.5 Froyo edition. And Ultimate Droid 3 is based on Gingerbread. XDA developer, crawlingcity is back to the XDA finally. Here is his latest great Android build ~ Ultimate Droid 3.0.1 RAM edition. It is based on Android 2.3.2 Gingerbread and using Rafpigna 1.7 Kernel.
DarkStone SuperRAM is very famous on SD card Android. It is super fast as it loads whole Android system files into RAM compare to other normal builds which store at SD card. But SuperRAM on NAND Android build? Will that increase the loading speed? Let’s find out with TyphooN CyanogenMod 7 NAND Android RAM build. It is based on latest Android 2.3.2 Gingerbread and using Rafpigna v1.7 OC Kernel. By the way, A2SD+ was removed from base package since version 2. So you have to install optional add-on to enable A2SD+ function.
