Android's open source properties mean that you don't necessarily need to have the G1 or HTC Magic to run it on your device. In fact, with the proper adjustments, you can have it up and running on your Diamond Touch in no time, supplanting your phone's Windows Mobile. Keep in mind that by launching Android from your phone's SD card you can switch back to Windows Mobile at any time by rebooting your phone.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Download the latest premade Android package (see Resources), which includes the operating system's core files, to your desktop. Once the download is complete and the package appears on your desktop, create a new folder on your desktop.

  2. 2

    Right-click on the downloaded package to extract the core files to the folder you previously created. Disable your phone's PIN code.

  3. 3

    Double-click on the folder to open it, then select all the files and folders inside and copy them to the Diamond's internal storage.

  4. 4

    Follow the on-screen prompts to run haret.exe on your device and complete the installation. Finally, reboot your phone.
