Android 4.4 KitKat ported onto HTC HD2

Android logoIt seems that the HTC HD2, despite being released about 4 years ago, is refusing to fade into obscurity. We had heard how the handset had managed to receive the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update, and now it looks like the HTC HD2 will also be on the receiving end of the Android 4.4 KitKat update, which is admittedly pretty impressive for such an old device! This port is courtesy of XDA Senior Member, chautruongthinh who managed to port the latest build of Android onto the device. However as expected, not everything is working yet and there are still some issues with the port that needs ironing out, so don’t expect to use this as a daily driver just yet.

Android 4.4 KitKat ported onto HTC HD2

As it stands mobile data, broken WiFi, broken SD card, and some graphical glitches are just some of the many issues plaguing the build at the moment, although the basics do work meaning that if you still have your HTC HD2 lying around and wanted to experiment, perhaps learn how to root or flash custom ROMs, we suppose now is as good a time as any to start practicing! We guess it’s not too surprising that Android 4.4 KitKat has managed to make its way onto the HD2. After all the purpose of KitKat was meant to support lower-end Android devices, particularly those which do not sport 1-2GB of RAM. In any case if any of our readers have tried this out, let us know in the comments below on how it is working out for you!:
