Dual-Boot Windows Phone 7 and Android on the HTC HD2

After the HTC HD2 was hacked to run Android, we asked what was next…I guess this is what's next.

You may have heard that the HTC HD2 can be hacked to run both the Windows Phone 7 OS and the Android OS. But now it can run both...at the same time!

Ok, not really at the same time (I'm sure you're imagining some sort of crazy WinPho7-Android mash-up), but from the same partitioned SD card.

The cool kids over at xda-developers have put up a tutorial on how to partition an SD card to run both Windows Phone 7 and Android. It's not exactly a one-step process, so they also went ahead and made a video:

The HTC HD2, introduced last April for T-Mobile, traditionally runs Windows Mobile 6.5. Yeah, I bet you forgot that even existed. Well, it also has a Snapdragon processor, a 4.3-inch touchscreen, and 5-megapixel camera with a dual LED flash. Strangely enough, it hasn't received an official upgrade to Windows Phone 7, perhaps because Microsoft has just decided to let the hackers do it.
