Marwa, 18 Nov 20101- desire HD is fine , but i'm afraid it hasn't reached us yet ..
2- i'm asking about the upg... moreROMs are an image of every thing the phone comes with form a software point of view.
Just to name a few things that are in that image… OS installation, hardware Drivers, programs installations, if it is on the phone after a factory reset, it came from the ROMs.
That ROMs image takes up space on your ROM. and “technical” read only so you can’t edit it. I say technical because phones don’t use old school ROM.
With the rush to get the devices on the shelf for a set date or an oversight on the part of a programmer. Phones cold be sold with e.g. defective hardware drivers, incomplete software or software that does not have every thing the manufactory intended it to have.
They then could release a patch but depending on modifications you did to the phone, the patch my not work. Or if you factory reset the phone the patch would be lost.
So to get around that problem, it would be best to create a new ROMs image. With the problems fixed and have you replace your old image with the new image, that way when a factory a.k.a hard rest is done, you will now get the new drivers and what ever other things were fixed or added and not the old stuff that had problems.
Programming takes time and they can’t take all the time they need to fix every problem or request before making an UP date ROMs. So when enough programming changes have be made a new ROM is release.
You ask why upgrade your ROM…..
I got my phone with 1.43 ROMs on my ROM. and there were bugs. For one the camera would take pink pictures.
That was fixed in 1.48
Then in 1.66 the phone was able to use bigger SD cards with the camera. The sms and the audio manager problems were fixed.
Then in 3.14 the dialer, fm radio, sms and voice recorder were updated. And the CPU usage was adjusted to consume less power And the driver for the cell phone where updated to get a cleaner call. These are just some of the things I have benefited from because I updated my ROM.
Window mobile phones have the ROM slit into 3. part for you ROMs. Part to load programs when they are running (even if it was installed on the SD) and part as user storage. Because its all 1 ROM will you fill the free space of the storage part and and gets slow, that affect the other 2 parts as will. The ROM is only as good as its weakest link.
Note: cooked ROMs are images made but programmers that do not work for HTC.
And they have made improvements or removed programming that they think you do not need and is taking up space you should have to use as storage.

Well HTC is not going to fix it for free any more because your friend opened it. and to do that he/she had to remove the “void” cap that covers one of the screws. So the first thing they are going to say is, you opened it and broke it and they are not going to cover damage under that kind of circumstance.

Did you try to bight the cookie after you installed it and broke something? lol
Or did the person you sent it by open the phone and broke something?

I mashed my phone and cracked the digital display without cracking the glass and when I call HTC they gave me the info to Fedex it to Texas to replace the screen under the warranty. And I don’t live, and have never been, to the US. I didn’t even buy it in the US. I bought it online out of the UK. (And I don’t live there either)

Only people that don’t have to install .net 3.5 are those with ROM version 3.14 and above or those that are using a cooked ROM that already had .net 3.5 built into it.
If you downloaded cookie from the authors web page. you would have seen that that .net 3.5 and CHTEditor with matching version as cookie are needed.

I have only used one version so far, but this is my reason for saying this…
a. The still/video camera is not working in the version I am using.
b. this will never have as fast a reaction time, for Android on the HD2 as you can get on the Desire HD. The Desire HD has more RAM, its OS is running off of the ROM where as a HD2 is running android off the SD card. So data access time is only as fast as the “Class” SD you have in the phone.
c. Some programs on the market look to see what model phone you have and will not work on the HD2 because it is not listed as an Android Phone.
So if what you want is android, then buy the Desire HD
Only do what I did if you are someone that need windows and would like to use Android sometimes for the things you can’t get in winmo.
2 are you asking about the ROM or the ROMs? Or do you want me to go into all the detail I said I would if you asked?
3. If I called you a guy at any time before I’m sorry. But being a girl dose not change the price of cheese LOL. I’ll still talk to you the same way I talk to every one in here. Gender, race or religion means nothing to me.

Did you try the hard reset this way?
Take out the batter.
Put it back in
Hold the volume up & down key at the same time.
Power on the phone.
When you see the gray screen with the blue writing, release the volume keys.
Follow the on screen instructions.
If you did not hold the key properly and it just stops on the 4 color bands screen. Take out the battery and try again.
