HD 2 is a very good phone but i m facing recently a freeing problem. It becomes hang and I have detach the battery from the HD2 and again it works!!! Recently i m using the ENERGY ROM. Anybody have any idea why it's happening and what's the solution??? Please help me out!!! I really want to use this phone....
I keep on getting the following error message. "A Problem has occurred with filesys.exe" This in turn is followed by my smses not going out, but all other functions still work. I have not installed anything else except what I got from my SP. What can I do to correct the problem.
Tank, 31 May 2010Hey Anthony, i have installed it on my mobileHi Tank, I’m now getting some time to write
Lag and instability
2 of the main reasons for lag and instability is lack of free memory and 3rd party software that are not 100% compatible with the HD2.
I would attempt to explain it the best way I can before I go into what can be done about it.
The HD2 has 3 types of memory, RAM, ROM and SD.
RAM behaves just like RAM on a PC but the ROM and the SD is more like internal and external hard drives. And just like hard drives on a PC, 10% of it must be free in order for the drive to be defragmented. The closer you get to the 10% the slower the phone responds. When you drop below 10% the phone freezes or/and hardware drivers shot down. You should also take note that the” hardware ROM” has 2 petitions
1 partition on the “hardware ROM” is visible storage, which contains the installed OS and all the other programs and files that HTC/phone service provider puts on. The next partition is hidden storage where the software ROM is kept. The software ROM is an uninstalled image of the phone software (that is what you downloaded from the HTC site the other day).
So from the first time you turn on the phone, the 512mb storage you saw in the spec, most of it is already used up.
Next thing that is similar to a PC is..... Whenever a program is running, part of it loads into RAM and a next part loads into a swap file. This swap file is kept on the internal storage even if the program is installed on the SD.
What’s left after that is free for you to put/install things on (and that is not much)
3rd party software problems.....
Unlike some other phones where the 3rd party software is made for the phone hardware, that is not the case here. Most 3rd party software is made for the OS/windows mobile and not particularly for any one hardware model. And most of the time it is not tested on every window mobile phone model made. So there are times you will install a program that is not 100% compatible with the HD2 hardware and that will cause instability.
As soon as I get time again I will start posting the things that can be done.
JLC, 01 Jun 2010I was thinking about getting this - have you used it at all?? yeah i finally figured it all out
well worth downloading it and paying for the supporters version. runs ps1 games at 60fps and supports multitouch and is amazinggg!
but it only works on a stock rom + is a battery life killer!

Found this nice navigation app for HD2. It works without a data plan needed. It gives you spoken turn by turn, speed warnings, gives you pictured lane assignment at interchanges, auto re-route, etc. It uses built in GPS... It was about half off til May 31st...

When I tap the up arrow next to the keyboard icon I can pick from
Compact QWERTY (looks like BB)
I'm running 1.66 but the WWE/(UK)version.
can't help with the first part, all I type is english and use Google language converter to do the rest for me.
Tank, 31 May 2010I have done all these. Am ready. cheersdownload ".net cf 3.5 redistributed".
the version on the phone is old and you will need it for some 3rd party software to work. do a google search for it. it should be a ".msi" file from a microsoft web paGe.

2) In my previous rom, I did not have this compact keyboard (not phone keypad). Is there anyway I can put this blackberry-style compact keyboard on 1.66 rom? I like this compact as it is fast & can be done one-handed. Thanks

Once you get the right custom ROM and Radio Version installed in your phone. You will appreciate it like no other specially if you are more into watching movies in your phone, playing games or surfing the nets. But if this are too complicated for you then you should buy a cheap simple phone. Remember, its not your phones fault that you don't understand him. Learn it to appreciate it.
