Some brand new flagship smartphones are still waiting to be updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop, the HTC HD2, which was launched in 2009 running Windows Mobile 6.5, is now running Google's latest OS.

Over the years a number of operating systems have been ported to the HTC HD2 including Nokia X, Firefox OS, Ubuntu and Windows Phone 8.

Lollipop was ported over by develop macs18max, but as the ROM is still in its early stages of development, functionality is quite limited.

Still, it's another impressive achievement for the HD2, which just goes to prove that you can teach an old dog new tricks.
