Marwa, 18 Nov 20101-after all , i prefer to have a phone of the ability to have 2 OS , as long as android works ... more1. If I am to grade on a curve with the Desire HD being a 10, then android on the HD2 can’t be given a perfect 10
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.

Saeed - Iran, 17 Nov 2010Hey pal....so u finally installed android...how is the phone now?How is my phone??
I gave High Tech my opinion & It's still on page one.
So is there something specific you want to know?
Marwa, 17 Nov 20101-may i be a little curious & ask what a ROM truly is ???

The word “ROM” is used very loosely in here. Some times it is referring to type of memory chip call a ROM. other times we are referring to the built-in programming image software called a “ROMs”. Originally a ROM = Read Only Memory, like a old Nintendo game cartage but the new ones that are used in phones are not 100% read only.
If you want to know more let me know.
Why I think the Desire HD is a better multimedia phone than the HD2 is for 4 reasons.
1. The parts of it that are not the sense UI looks better/polished in comparison to the parts of win mo that are not the Sense UI.
2. For media formats and software that play them, the HD2 and Desire HD were neck and neck but the Desire HD went over the top by having full flash 10. 1 support in the web browser. No crappy app or mediaplayer add-on needed.
3. better video camera
4. It handles media attached to email more in keeping to how it would look on a PC.
So if you are in the market to buy a phone and you just wanted ONE OS and you are more a multimedia Person don’t you think that would be the way to go?
(if you like need microsoft outlook, word,excel then you need the HD2 no questions asked.)

But he is a real media junky, this is a guy that install a PC into his car (gutted the glove box, installed touch screen display in the dashboard). Because a DVD head unit like the rest of us, simple surveillance, just was not enough for him. He luvs how the iPhone worked just don’t like some of the limitations. That is the only reason he gave it up for the HD2. But now he wants to move again, because after trying froyo on the HD2, he thinks the Desire HD would be like a super iPhone. He dose not use word, excel or outlook so I can see why he would like the Desire HD more.

My paypal payment( my billing add is US and shipping add is china) did not get through and I called them up to sort out payment issue. They advised me to bank transfer which sounds weird and I never did this before. But I can trust clove in this matter.
One for thing, You win mob guys seem to have some kind of old personal vendetta with iphone lol. I'm not into fan boy things……but your naïve fren's comment (android is iphone on steriod) is really funny. May be he's not aware of jailbreak & 200K apps in itunes.
PS: I've used iphone extensively eventhough I do not own one.

When I told him I had installed Android he went and did the same. He dose not use his phone for anything work related, he is more into media and stuff like that, only got the HD2 because the iphone was limited in customizations and capability. Now that he is using Android on his HD2, he said it feels like an “iPhone on steroids”. Now he wants to sell his HD2 to get a Desire HD. LOL
I use this phone already 1 yrs. I wish to sell o throw the phone to dustbin! it always jam & lap when I suffer internet .. how come like tis?
Anthony, 17 Nov 2010I have no complaints in how (Mdeejay FroYo HD v.3.7) is running. But there are things i don’t... moreYes the FroYo HD build is nice... I cannot use it as my main OS... It doesn't have the Office apps I need... As for navigation I use Navigon... Navigon is a very nice navigation app... I use to have it for WM, but will buy again when it goes 50% off... The one thing a really like about Android is the low cost apps for it... WM apps are really getting to costly (up to $89+ for some apps. If you bought the same apps on another OS it would cost way less)... I view Android on my HD2 as another OS I can use on a daily basis...
