This phone is will be in the HTC hall of fame for all the newer generations to look back upon.
1. Beautiful design, solid build quality (many people feels it gave the same first impression wow-factor as an iPhone4)
2. Strong specifications that is still standing against the test of time for 1 year (still keeps up with high-end phones)
3. Makes the horrendous WinMo 6.5 a joy to use, Android able, and very soon WinMo 7 able (all thanks to XDA of course)
4. No need to try slander it's poor display colors because in the end, it's big and it's mean. Ask any stranger around you that is staring at your phone.
Sure, more desirable phones are out (Desire HD) but if you have this phone, there is absolutely no need to burn some (a lot actually) extra cash for the slight (that's right, only slight) upgrades! This is definitely going to be my keeper phone~

you should do a hard reset. must likely it will fix the problem. (some times after a ROM change you have to do 2 hard reset/ factory reset. to get rid of system files that got left behind.)

if after 2 hard resets you still have the error. i will tell you what to try to do the down grade.

3. insert rel_path=YourbuildfolderHere between the qoutes

(that warranty has nothing to with the seller, you deal with HTC direct) but your bill of sale is a grate help if you need to make a claim, so don't dump it, if you still have it. (box and packing is not important)
hi Anthony can you just tell me i bought my HD2 from UK 7 months before now i dont know how much time is left for my warranty?I even dnt no do HTC offer any warranty on mobiles or not.?

but tell me Anthony how can i re boot to WM again when i want to ?
I recently bye a HTC HD2.But it doesn't show "waiting" or any signal when i call a person who is already talking to others. Is there any option?
Due to the large area to be illuminated LCD, the battery drains in minutes HTC, WHEN YOU MORE NEED, HAVE LESS! Think about twice before buy a HTC HD2!
Friends let your HTC HD2 only for emergencies. Battery drains quickly! Belive me. I have one since 08/2010, and now, the battery supports only half day. Wait HTC engineers solve this problem. The device no have problem, are pretty good, just battery sucks. Is like an printer ink jet, they have to sale the refill. The refill of cell phone is your battery. Before I gonna sleep at 2:00 am o´clock, I let the my HTC HD2 in standby, and next morning, in the same day, it was power off. BATTERY$$$$. HTC CAMPAIGN " WHEN YOU MORE NEED, HAVE LESS".
[deleted post]The market place is the only way to get skyfire for WM now. And the service is no longer available in many areas. So you are out of luck.
Just do what i did and install Android
The browser in that has full 10.1 support and you will still have your windows mobile. nothing changes in it.
Dual boot your phone.
Here is the link
and also read the post I sent to Liverpool with time stamp 2010-11-22 15:30
If you get it working you can also install
The boot loader called EBL2 in WM
it’s a nice way to which over to Android when you need to. Or to set Android as your default boot up system (that’s up to you)
Liverpool, 23 Nov 2010Wut is the size of the file? IST 247mb ?im replying because i think this was intended for me.
The download is about 247mb but that is a .7z compressed file.
You have to uncompress it. And only copy the folder name Android and all its contents to the root of the SD card.
You can get 7zip for your PC for free. just do a google search for it.
Best phone ever. I love my HD2. Android and xda-dev has given it a new lease on life.
Tank, 23 Nov 2010hey guys since skyfire doesnt work anymore. Is there an alternative browser that has flash? thanksinstall Android and use the browser in it for flash. that's what i do now.I use WM most of the time but switch over to Android when i need to.
i gave the link to the Android version I'm using to liverpool in a post below.
