Lynn, 19 Oct 2010You didnt get me as you suggested to me to do hard reset my ROM to get rid of my signal proble... moreI think I understand what you are asking now.
Nothing on your SD will be lost if you do a factory reset.
But programs that were installed to the SD card have registry entries and start menu shortcuts. Those are kept on internal memory and will be lost with a factory reset.
So you will still have to reinstall the programs even though they were on the memory card in order to get back the registry entries and the start menu shortcuts.
Setting in most of the programs you install on the SD would not be lost because the setting file would have been on the SD in the programs folder. That was not touch during the factory reset.

Barney, 19 Oct 2010I'm thinking of trying out Andriod, preferably Froyo, on my UK o2 HD2 which I've had for almos... moreAndroid froyo latest version 3.2 from XDA is working absolutely great both on my and my wifes HD2,including Camera ,Camcorder,Market etc.
I'm thinking of trying out Andriod, preferably Froyo, on my UK o2 HD2 which I've had for almost a year now.
My current ROM (22.214.171.124) is the most recent, stock o2 upgrade from the HTC Europe site which came with radio version 2.07.51.22_2.
Have any other o2 users tried, hopefully with some success, to run Android from their SD card using the above ROM and radio versions? If so, what build of Android would you recommend?
Alternatively, if only a flashed non-stock ROM and HSPL installation will make this work, what would be my best way forward to safeguard my warranty and ensure I dont brick my beloved HD2?
Soz if anyone is getting fed up with HD2 android issues being raised on here, but I've been looking around XDA, HTCPedia, et al for a few days now and feel like I'm just going in circles!
I have two different S/N ,one under the battery the other on the software,which one I should use it?
I have HSPL on my phone will that prevent me upgrading from the official HTC website,
thanks in advance.

If your S/N downloaded the 3.14 ROM then your phone is not a T-mobile UK.
The 3.14 you told me started to download using your S/N was made for HTC factory unlocked Phone. That could be why you’re constantly rebooting. Some one put a T-mobile ROM on a phone it was not designed for.
Remember before I told you I had seen that problem only twice before and one of the time was when I put a T-mobile USA test ROM on my phone.
Its important that you let me know..
1. When you get the downloaded ROM using your S/N.
2. If your power button works with the phone connected to your PC using the USB cable.
3. And the information that is on your 4 color band screen, when you power on holding the volume down key.
Shokaman, 19 Oct 2010Hi Anthony, I tried to download the version u said. But it said, that version is not suitable ... morethe next important step.
with your phone off, hold the volume down key only and power on the phone. when you see the color bands tell me the text you see there.
also, can you power on the phone when connected to the USB port of the PC. (need to know theses things to tell you what way to use to install the ROM you are downloading.)

Now i m downloading the other one dated 2010.10.11. It says ROM Version-Norway: 3.14.409.2, Spain: 3.14.412.2, Portugal: 3.14.410.2, France: 3.14.406.2, Sweden: 3.14.413.2, English: 3.14.405.2
I m not sure if it's the right one. I will tell u when download is finished.

Loaded Omarket and downloaded Data Conroller. Will see how it goes.
... moreIn “dater controller” you have to switch off the parts of the SIM you want to block.
Then turn off the main switch at the bottom, if you where already connected to the internet.
OHW, 19 Oct 2010Thanks Anthony I will see what I can dig out for youYou can start by saying if you got the phone from an official HTC vender outlet/site or if you got it on an auction or used/second hand?

You just typed it “1.42 HSPL” (and that is the very first one too.)
Did you buy that phone on ebay or something? Looks like some one hacked the phone original SPL with the first HSPL and put on the 1.66.405.2 UK ROM before you got the phone, if you are telling me you did not install any HSPL.
I need more info about where you got the phone before I will take a chance and give a recommendation of what to try.

What I would really like to know now is if you did not use any HSPL to get the ROM on your phone. How did you get it on? And what is your SPL version?
Power off the phone. Hold the volume down key and power on the phone.
The correct SPL for the 3.14 ROM is SPL-3.03. What version dose yours say?
