That’s right! The folks from DFT (Dark Force Team) has successfully installed Microsoft’s latest mobile platform to HTC’s 3-year old Windows Phone handset as seen on their blog (in Chinese).
DFT, as some of you may know, isn’t exactly new to this business of porting other OS to this aging handset. They team actually ported a handful of Windows Phone OS to the HTC HD2 already, as well as Android. This hack makes us wonder why pre-WP8 handsets (i.e Lumia 900, HTC Titan etc.) cannot be updated to the latest OS because of “hardware limitations” while a veteran phone seems to be handling it just fine.
Aside from few images just like the one above, little is actually known about this mod. We’re expecting that the team will shed some light on their brilliant work in the near future. One thing’s for sure though, the HTC HD2 is one die-hard Windows Phone handset!
