HTC HD2 spotted running Windows RT, pigs can fly

The HTC HD2 is a phone that will go down in history not for its sales figures but for being one of the most versatile phones on the market that hackers have come to salivate over.

If you remember, the HTC HD2 was one of the last phones released to run Windows Mobile and many had hoped that it would have been updated to Windows Phone 7. While that train never arrived, the phone has been given new life and now runs Windows phone 8 and Windows RT.

We are aware that HD2 porting has been ongoing for some time and has received a bit of attention on the XDA community but we thought we would share this project with Neowin readers.

If you are the proud owner of an HTC HD2, it is possible to get Windows RT up and running on your phone. If you do go down this route, be prepared to jump through several hoops, have a cup full of patience, and then you can head over to the XDA forums to start learning more about the process but don’t expect a step by step guide to be prepared (yet) for this port.

For now, know that what once seemed like dead hardware that was abandoned by Microsoft is now thriving with Windows RT. We have not heard about how stable the OS runs on the platform or if all of the features are up and running (these things take time) but regardless, this is exciting to see Windows RT on the HD2.
