Run Android on Your Windows Mobile Phone

Interested in Android but think you need to buy a new phone to try it out? Actually, your Windows Mobile phone may already have the capability of running Android. Today we show you how and the type of phone you’ll need.

sshot-2010-07-07-[22-09-07]

Installing Android

To run Android you will need a microSD card that is not SDHC (typically a card less than 2GB) and a supported Windows Mobile phone (see below). You can check your microSD card compatibility by looking at the card to see if it shows the “HC” label.

The microSD card will need to be formatted in FAT32. Plug the microSD card into the computer and right click on it and choose format.

Note: Formatting a microSD drive will erase everything on that drive. Make sure you have any important files backed up before you format it.

Now that the microSD card is formatted, the first step to installing Android is finding the right Android port for your phone (see below). You will need to find the port that works on your phone as well as the version of Android you want to run. Versions start at 1.0 but typically you will find ports for version 1.6 or 2.1.

Once you have found the right port for your phone and Android version you want to use, extract the files to a folder using 7-zip.

After the files have extracted there should be a folder called “andboot”. Go into the andboot folder and there will be another folder called “startup config” or “startup”. Open this folder and you will need to find the right startup.txt file for your phone. Inside each folder will be a single “startup.txt” file. Copy the file for your phone model to the root of the andboot folder. This file will tell Android what type of hardware you have, how big your screen is, how much RAM your phone has etc. so it is very important to choose the right file. If you are confused on what these phone names are please read below on finding your phone model.

Once you have moved the correct startup.txt file to the andboot folder, copy the entire andboot folder to the root of your newly formatted microSD card.

Plug the microSD card back in the phone and open the file browser on your phone and browse to the memory card. Make sure the phone is plugged into power before the next few steps because on some phones running on battery may cause the phone to hang.

Open the andboot folder and run haret.exe. If the right startup.txt file is in the root of the andboot folder you should be able to click “Run” and you will get a quick loading screen while haret turns off Windows Mobile and starts up Android.

You should get some scrolling text and probably a nice Android logo while the phone boots up the first time.

Note: The first boot is going to take a considerably longer time than subsequent boots. and you may need to calibrate your screen during the boot process so make sure you keep an eye on it.

Once the basic Linux settings are done your new “Android” phone will boot to a welcome screen so you can walk through the rest of the settings like setting up your email account.

Tip: If you are running Android on a phone that does not have an active data plan but does have wifi, you can get around the startup screen by tapping on the welcome screen in this order: top left corner, top right corner, bottom right corner, bottom left corner then tap the Android logo. You can then enable wifi and join a network and set up your gmail account manually.

It is usually recommended that you leave your phone alone while it syncs your information for at least 10 minutes. Once the initial syncing is done the phone should start running faster and you can play around with installing apps. If you don’t wait for the phone to fully sync you may have problems with apps crashing prematurely and a force close dialog popping up.

Change any settings and install any apps you want, they will be saved to your memory card and ready on next boot. All phones that run Android from the microSD card will automatically boot Windows Mobile when the phone restarts. To run Android again, just open the file browser and run haret.exe again.

Android Ports

There are a few different Android ports for Windows Mobile devices and each one supports a different family of device; each family of device has a varying amount of hardware support. Most phones will support the touch screen, hardware buttons, cell phone radio, and data connection, but some ports may not support bluetooth, GPS, or power management. This is not a complete list of Android ports available, but it should cover the most popular Windows Mobile phones.

Almost all Android development on Windows Mobile phones started with the development on theHTC Touch (also known as the HTC Vogue and the Verizon xv6900). The HTC Touch has 100% of the hardware features working and even some features that were not available in official Windows Mobile ROMs. One of the main differences between Android for the Touch and Android for every other phone is the Touch allows for Android to be flashed to the phone’s ROM (NAND memory). This was a big break through for Android development and has increased battery life and speed greatly. Running Android on the Touch can be done following the steps above but it is recommended to run Android by flashing the phones NAND memory. To learn how to do that, start at the Android Touch FAQ thread at XDA-Developers.
Android ports for the HTC Touch can also be used on the following phones with varying success.
  • HTC Nike (Neon)
  • HTC Polaris (Touch Cruise)
  • HTC Kaiser (TyTN II)
  • HTC Titan (Mogul, xv6800)

Note: HTC phones all have proper names that come from HTC and in many cases each carrier will give the phone its own branding and rename the phone to something else. For example, the HTC Titan was called the Mogul on Sprint and the xv6800 on Verizon. To find the Android port for your phone, start by finding the proper HTC name of your device. Start on HTC’s site to discover your device’s official name.

XDAndroid supports the most popular touch screen HTC Windows Mobile phones and if you bought a touch screen HTC Windows Mobile phone within the past year, most likely this port will support your phone. XDAndroid runs directly from the phones microSD memory card on the following phones:
  • Touch Pro (Fuze, RAPH, RAPH800, RAPH500)
  • Touch Diamond (DIAMOND, DIAM500)
  • Touch HD (BLACKSTONE)
  • GSM Touch Pro2 (TILT2,RHODIUM, RHOD400, RHOD500)
  • GSM Touch Diamond2 (TOPAZ)
Andromnia is an Android port for Samsung devices. Currently this port is in the pre-alpha stages and things like the headset speaker does not work. But if you want to test it out it supports the following phones:
  • Samsung i900 (GSM, supported worldwide)
  • Samsung i910 (CDMA, used by Verizon in the US)
  • Samsung i780 (Mirage)
  • Samsung i907 (AT&T Epix)

Wing Linux isn’t as quickly developed as XDAndroid but should get the job done if your phone isn’t supported by any other port. Wing Linux supports the following phones to varying degrees:

  • HTC Artemis
  • HTC Elf, HTC Elfin
  • HTC Excalibur, T-Mobile Dash
  • HTC Gene, HTC P3400
  • HTC Herald, T-Mobile Wing
  • HTC Opal, HTC Touch Viva
  • HTC Pharos
  • HTC Prophet
  • HTC Startrek
  • HTC Wizard
  • Asus P320, Galaxi Mini

You may also want to look at threads for the following phones to check the status of Android on these phones.

HTC Leo (HD2)

    unfortunatly putting android on my htc caused it to brick. after running android, left it on the charger, came back to find it turned off, i could never turn it on again. dunno exactly if its androids fault… but still.

  2. Chris K

    Great article! I hadn’t even considered that I could try Android out on my old HTC Mogul. Think I’ll be doing some more reading and give this a shot very soon.

  3. Rothgar

    @Chris K The Mogul is a great candidate because it has a physical keyboard, wifi, and roughly G1 specs. Last time I ran it on the Mogul it was pretty slow but things have picked up a lot since then.

    >To run Android you will need a microSD card that is not HDHC (typically a card less than 2GB) and a >supported Windows Mobile phone (see below).

    guess you mean ‘SD-HC’ ;)

    greetz

  5. Jason

    Good job Motorola, Windows Mobile phones can run Android 2.1 before the cliq. That’s great.

  6. k0nane

    Not sure where you got the info on not using a MicroSDHC card for Android. I’ve never seen that mentioned in the official XDAndroid project threads, and I’ve been using an 8gb MicroSDHC card for Android on my HTC Fuze (Touch Pro) since Eclair (then 2.0.1, then 2.1, will be running Froyo when the devs release a final/stable version).

  7. Snowstone

    Is it possible to run Android as my main OS on my ZTE BlueBelt 2? http://pdadb.net/index.php?m=specs&id=2073&c=tmn_bluebelt_ii

    I don’t want to try this without being sure I won’t brink or otherwise srew up my phone.

  8. Rothgar

    @k0nane That may have only been a restriction on the WM phones that I used. I know for sure it was a problem with the mogul and I had issues with the HTC Touch with my 4GB card. The problem originally was because the driver for reading SDHC cards was not implemented on a lot of the older phones. It probably isn’t an issue with XDAndroid but I only have a RAPH500 to test with, and the RAPH500 is notoriously poorly supported to begin with.

  9. Enzo

    Hi,
    Is it dangerous for the phone ?

  10. D

    If this pans out as I think it will, my wife’s Tilt2 will make a great Android 2.1 platform.

    Just one Q: How does one go about making it a constant? i.e. if she likes it, is it viable to drop it from the microSD directly onto the phone such that the phone boots right to Eclair, and WinMo is just a bad dream from the past?

  11. M10

    any luck with ASUS M10 ?

  12. Jak

    nice! please where do i get an android version? theres no link as to where i could download one. thanx.

  13. dracoola

    What if I have an (i-mate JAMin)??

    can it run android?

  14. Jonathan

    Similar question to “D”. I have an old i910 Omnia and was wondering if I could skip loading Android onto my sd card and just put the files in “My Storage” instead.

  15. Justin Garrison

    @D The only phone that will fully replace Windows Mobile is the HTC Touch (Vogue). Some of the Android ports are still trying to get this to work but I am not sure how that progress is coming for the Tilt2. You will have to check the xda-developers forum to see what the status on replacing WM is.

    @Jak All the links you need to get started are in the post above. Click on the name of the port to find where you can download the right one.

  16. vadim

    i have htc universal which supports SD cards but not microSD. Can I run android on it?\thanks!

  17. Riston

    Here’s my issue..got it running on my Tilt2 except for one small issue..it can’t seem to detect my network…so it’s not connecting for call purposes or even the market purposes…my question is, would I have to reinstall everything in order for this to work? (It’s just showing ‘searching’)

    Also, whenever I go to power it off, the only way that seems to work is pulling the battery…when I hit the power button it brings up a widget menu.

  18. edge

    respected sir,
    is it possible on nokia 5th edition devices for example nokia n97, nokia 5800?
    thanking you.

  19. Jaz

    Hi, is this ROM working with O2 XDA Mini S, i just want to make it sure

  20. alvin

    how about HD2?? is it using XDAndroid also??
    thx

  21. Jimmyjim

    I have an HTC Imagio currently running Windows Mobile 6.5. This is tempting, but I don’t read in the comments that anyone did this successfully. Seems dodgy/dangerous.

  22. queitman

    has anyone tried installing Android on LG incite phone

  23. chaitanyak

    i have a htc pharos.. will definitely try this on it

  24. Justin Garrison

    @edge I think the only nokia phone that has an Android port is the n900. The n97 and other nokia phones don’t have ports to my knowledge (but I haven’t been looking so it is possible).

    @alvin HD2 using its own port of android. There is a link to it in the post above (called the HTC Leo).

    For everyone else, I don’t know the specifics for all of the phones asked. The best place to look is the XDA-developers forum to see if there is any progress on Android for your phone. If you can’t find anything there check out ppcgeeks.com to see if there is any progress there.

  25. YASIR

    i hav a htc fuze(p4600). has anybody installed android to htc fuze? plz let me know how it works.

  26. YASIR

    i hav a htc fuze(p4600). i hav a question.since we can install android from microsd card and if the android dont work or hang the mobile, can it work after we remove the microsd card and reboot to windows mobile platform? plz respond.

  27. Mike Jones

    Hi,

    If I do get Andriod running on my phone it is possible for me to switch back to WinMo or am I stuck with Andriod?

    Thanks.

    Mike

  28. iamchrismoran

    I’ve got a mogul/6800, I see no link above for its port and after exhausting a ton of time in xda and androindonhtc and ppcgeeks I cannot figure out for the life of me a definitive set of files I need to boot mine to android via SD.
    I know everyone wants “their” phone’s attention… but it seemed the article left me wanting too much.

  29. vivek

    from where i download android 1.6 or 2.1?
    link please.
    superb article……

  30. cristina

    did anybody tried to put android on samsung i8000 alias omnia2?let me know something….

  31. Justin Garrison

    @Mike Jones For most phones you can just run Android and then reboot the phone to get back to Windows Moblie. Only a few phones will completely replace Windows Moblie.

    @iamchrismoran Sorry for no link for the Mogul. I used to do it but haven’t kept up with their forum threads to give a good link for it. You can try Wing Linux but if not it looks like some people had success using the port directly for the Vogue http://j.mp/brYCJt

  32. Mike Jones

    @Justin: Thanks, I have the AT&T Fuze. So, I should be ok, right?

  33. ali

    hello
    please give me a link to download android for HTC Opal, HTC Touch Viva

  34. erfan

    thanks its work very well on my touch viva(opal) phone i hop its update become better.

  35. Justin Garrison

    @Mike Jones Yes you can use XDAndroid on the Fuze so you should have plenty of options. With XDAndroid you should be able to try out Froyo too.

  36. Mike Jones

    @Justin: Thanks. I just got XDAndroid on the Fuze and it’s running great. Thanks for the help.

  37. Adil

    What about i-mate Ultimate 6150?

    Hi,

    how do I know if my HTC S730 is compatible, is there a list of phones whch can be used for this test?

    Thanks,

    Aldo

  45. Yamanovski

    Thank you for the article, I find it very useful

  46. Dude

    Dude, your instructions is so vague as it doesn’t really apply to all phones and where’s the files to your instructions? Your links at the bottom or the so call PORTS have their own instructions that is different from yours making your instructions kind of useless. If you’re going to write an instructions on “Run Android on your Windows…” please provide the correct files to the which phone your instructions is referring to. A waste of my time trying to follow your instructions when I could of just scroll down to the Port links for the correct phone instructions. If you could of just point that out at the beginning that would of been helpful.

  47. Boon

    I’m using XDAndroid on my HTC Touch Pro2. Very straightforward install, no problem.

    A few gripes:
    1. Battery level don’t seem to work properly. It shows low even though it’s fully charged.
    2. Screen brightness does not work either. I’ll need to learn more about XDAndroid to use it properly.
    3. The AppDrawer gets very crowded very quickly with more apps added.

  48. MJRS

    Hi there,

    I have a HTC Prophet (Orange SPV M600) but I cannot seem to be able to find the Android OS on Wing Linux. The only thing I managed to download was a text file zip with default and setup txt files only.

    Also, what is this Haret.exe thing mentioned? Where do I get that download?

    Any assistance is greatly appreciated!

    Hi ppl,

    I’m aware that there are some references on XDA-developers regarding how to get Android working on TOSHIBA TG01.. i feel a bit unsecure and on youtube recordings everybody makes it so simple but this is far, on my point of view, from being a simple task.

    TG01 has the necessary HW to run gingerbread and i just wanna ask if there’s any HTC method reliable as well on toshiba TG01.
