I've been getting a lot of messages regarding where to get the files needed to boot android on TP2s lately. Here are a couple of updated links. The old links might not be working anymore because most of the orginal devs have moved on to other projects.
Froyo 2.2 builds and info can be found here.
Gingerbread 2.3 builds can be found here.
The Froyo 2.2 build is more stable and ideal for daily use. The 2.3 build is still in its early stages some functions might not work. I haven't played witht hese builds because i don't have a Tilt2 anymore. But i did install it on a friends Tilt2.
The installation process is similar to this video be sure to review the dev's notes to see what has changed. Best of luck.

This is a follow up video to my original Android on Rhodium video. It's pretty much a progress report of last months video. Here are some of the major changes that's been going on in porting Android over to the Rhodium devices. Things that work (voice calls, sms, txt, data, android market, google maps, livewallpaper *Nexus One style wallpapers, in fact when you sign in with your gmail account on the phone google sends you an e-mail congratulating you on your purchase of the Nexus One!!!*, hardware key mapping *Tilt 2 keyboard layout still not mapped yet.*) Things that don't work (WiFi, Bluetooth, Camera, GPS, G-Sensor, Sound, Power management) Things that were fixed since last video (screen alignment issues fixed, voice calls, sms, txt, data) The devs at XDA are making good progress with this project, expect to see more functionality very soon as they are all working hard to come up with a build we can use on a daily basis but for now these builds are too unstable and incomplete to be used as your full time phone OS.
Until i have time to put up a fresh video here is links for the new XDA Builds. http://sites.google.com/site/androidp...
You can install it using the old .rar method or full automated method via .cab file (just remember to install into your Storage Card and NOT the device itself)
Package Build - (The build package I used in this video, basically the latest XDANDROID build with the latest zImage config files specifically for the Rhodium) - http://hotfile.com/dl/25896717/98aaa1...

Q: Will this damage my phone?
A: There is always a chance of damaging your phone, but generally these builds are safe enough to try out. Again standard disclaimer, the devs and I take no responsibility in the event you damage your phone.
Q: I installed it on my phone, this and that is not working, whats going on?
A: These are VERY early builds and a work in progress most thing are not going to work for now. Don't expect to install this and have it working like your friends Android phone any time soon.
Q: If I boot Android do I have to reinstall Windows Mobile afterwards?
A: Nope, for now Android boots off to RAM so your ROM is untouched. The only thing that gets changed is your phones time due to he way Android records time. Everything in your windows should remain the same when you boot back into it.
Q: I'm really interested in trying this out where do I go for more info?
A: There are several sites you can check out to learn more about porting/installing Android. If this is your first time trying it out it's best you use a prepackaged build like the one linked above (See Package Build link in References).
Q: Will there be more video updates?
A: That will depend on the feedback I get. I made the first video because someone in the xda forums requested a video tutorial on how to do all this. Sometimes its better to sit and watch a boring 10min video than read a few thousand posts and trying to piece things together. =)
