hd2..., 23 Aug 2011hi anthony n thanx for reply wen i enter in a boot loader to install wp7 wat can i select acti... moreActive sync or disk drive?????
That’s not the windows boot loader or the MAGLDR boot loader.
A boot loader is what LOADS the OS at BOOTup.
That is the “Connect to PC” menu in windows you are describing, which means you are already booted into the OS and past the point to access the boot loader.
I gave 3 steps below to installing WP7 which step are you on?
By the way have you ever updated a ROM on a HTC phone before?
Hi peeps, contemplating selling of my HD2 cos the battery cant take me more than 3 hours of video playback. cant it be better? how long does your own take you?

hd2..., 22 Aug 2011in which rom version wp7 can run on hd2 i have 3.14 but dis is not workingJust can’t install WP7 just like that.
3.14 has the correct radio but….
1. You have to unlock your SPL by installing HSPL2 or 3 first. (Sometimes you have to downgrade your ROM to do this, and then upgrade it after to get back the radio from 3.14)
2. Then you have to install MAGLDR 1.13 to have a boot loader for a NAND WP7 or Android.
3. Then use the MAGLDR boot loader to install WP7
in which rom version wp7 can run on hd2 i have 3.14 but dis is not working

ns, 17 Aug 2011Hi Anthony,
U always prefer win6.5(good for office and stability only)to anroid,tell me the... moredon't get me wrong, i don't think Android is crap.....
For streaming online on my HD2 i use Android.
But this is a smartphone and there are other things i want to do. Not just stream video.
Now for the rest of your list....
For a good free dictionary i use TildeTech dictionary (no internet access needed)
I use outlook task to manage, expense (because it can sync with outlook on PC)
But there are other expense managers on Omarket for free. task manager is built into the OS but i like MMTask manager more, don't use data counter because i have Black Berry unlimited dataplan on my SIM, but there are data counters on Omarket as well.
A great media player is Coreplayer. It is the VLC player of windows mobile. The next in line is the TCPMP player, there is MS word for note that PC compatible. There is also Outlook notes that can open in Outlook on the pc. bty outlook notes can sketch, type & audio record all in one file.
Now for MY reasons why i don't use a NAND Android ROM on my HD2 in no particular order.
1 Garmin Mobile XT can't find a program that can read Garmin maps in Android and Garmin is the only turn by turn nav maps there are for my country.
2 i can sort my contacts by name (in any order) by company or by company and name in any order.
2a. more fields to save info in a contact(including notes)
3 phone tracking software that can be cooked into the ROM.
4. Remote for PC over WiFi. (love it as a PC is the center of my entertainment system)
5. Task and calendar appointments that can sync with outlook on PC.
6. Compatibility with a dual sim card holder.
7. Navigation keys on the on-screen keyboard as the HD2 dose not have a track ball/pad.
Note: this is not all the programs i use but they are the things that keep me from switching my HD2 to Android and never looking back.
P.S. Take a look at www.freewarepocketpc.net
Finally,I'm back in winmo. This is my view on wp7 on the HD2. I flashed "mango" beta version by DFT modified by elfinlazz. Tile presentations n the start roll out brings in a new experience....kind of remove the icon menu style presentation that we've so gotten used to. Missing call timer is unacceptable,the "os" is locked down to the core,funny. in WP7 you'll realise how important 'OS' freedom is.Overall, lot of work need to be done but hey,it offers the break we need from the all to familiar menu styles. Will definitely flash back to "Mango" final version but won't keep it permanent. Anthony, how's the "Gingerbread" going?
