Hearty HTC HD2 hacked to run Firefox OS

Hearty HTC HD2 hacked to run Firefox OS
The HTC HD2 has been around since 2009 and when launched, it ran on Windows Mobile and carried a 4.3 inch screen that was exceptionally large for the time. Less than four years later, we have moved on to screens larger than 5 inches. Despite the outdated specs inside the handset, developers have been able to hack the phone to run on Android 4.1 , Windows Phone 8, Ubuntu and even Windows RT. Now, developers have been able to shoe horn Firefox OS onto the device.

It isn't a perfect fit with the SIM not being detected, and with problems popping up with the camera, low volume, resolution and with mass storage. The developer says that he is working on a bug free version of the OS. If you still own the HTC HD2 and want to see how the Firefox OS looks on the device, click on the sourcelink below.
