bogdan, 09 Dec 2009my rom now is 1.48.409.1(71294)NORbogdan... did yo get to change the rom as yet?
If you don't mind using a Reg Editor on your HD2 i found some nice modifications here.
Ok to all the people that want my help to change the rom
The first thing you need to do is go to www.htcpedia.com and become a member, only then will you be able to download the roms.
This is the link to the new rom. click it after you become a member.
the rom canít be installed just like that you have some tweaking to do to your registry and your SD card which will allow the phone to do and un-authorised change of rom. (donít worry the tweaks are only needed to get the rom on, it does not stay tweaked after the rom is on the phone.)
The link to how to do the tweaks is this.
The PHM registry Editor file to download and install on your phone is ďPocket PC 2002,2003 (ARM/PXA)Ē from the drop down list.
CID=SD cardís Serial number
Donít leave the QMAT running when you are not using it because the free version only works for 10 min. i think.
Try it and if you get stuck, just let me know where you got stuck, in detail and i will help you from there.
Anthony, 10 Dec 2009You will be able to do everything that everyone is doing on the phone but the things that need... morei can still what???!!!

Robby, 09 Dec 2009let me get this Straight,

And when you need to watch stuff on e.g. YouTube you will have to use Wi-Fi if you donít want to drop the video quality and in some cases you donít want it to skip. If you what to use skype mobile it will have to be over a Wi-Fi network because it lags from time to time on a 2G network. (Think of 2G like a slow dialup internet) by the way skype mobile does not support video calls.
As for the pink spot in pictures, you should try to get a HD2 with the new rom version that start with 1.48. ---.- but if donít you can still

bogdan, 09 Dec 2009my rom now is 1.48.409.1(71294)NORI don't want to know what rom you have now. I want to know what rom you want to use/download from the htcpedia link.
bogdan, 09 Dec 2009hy antony i tried your method to change the language from norwegian to english and i feild.i ... moredid you download the rom you want to use from htcpedia as yet? I'll help you when I get home about 6 hours from now. (let me know what rom #/ version you going with)
hey....its looks really big stuff....it can be used in place of ur laptop......
Anonymous, 09 Dec 2009So, I live in Canada and I understand that if I were to buy it now, it would only function on ... moredude don't do the same mistake as I did. If you want to get the best out of your htc and really enjoy it. Buy if from North America, and be sure it's the North American version. Because if you are unlucky like me you will buy a version from Europe and all you will get is 2g/edge which really sucks if you like browsing on the net and watching videos. The 3g is 7 times faster than 2g yes you heard it right. Otherwise, if you are buying a phone just to use it as a phone, it doesn't matter from where you buy it.
Hope this helped a little.
Q1. How can you lock the screen if there is no dedicated screen lock button?
Q2. Does screen wakes up when call/sms comes in when screen is locked? Because I don't want it to wake up.
Q3. On screen keyboard on HTC HD sucked. How has this been improved?
