Going on 3 weeks now and still no HD2 from HTC repair center (no call or anything)... They haven't started to repair it yet... Last word I got was they was waiting for a part to come in... Don't know what part it is???
I'm really pissed at this point...... I think this will probably be my first and last HTC phone..... They have a horrible cust srevice and repair center in the US.... The only reason I purchased an HTC device is the fact it is easy to customize thanks to Xda and others.....
adam, 19 Aug 2010how can i install skype hd2 pls help meThe only way to get skype now is from someone that already has the installation from before. Because the skype web site is no longer supporting windows mobile.
If you are having no luck getting the “version 3 .cab” from some one, let me know and I can email it to you.

So please if someone could tell me which are the basic steps to do to have Android 2.2 Froyo on my HD2, by the way my HD2 is from T-Mobile USA, but I'm not in USA, I bought it used, and it has only 3 weeks since I bought it, and I didn't installed other ROM or Radio Versions on it, so I will really appreciate very much for those who can help me !
Syrus, 19 Aug 2010I understand your point for sticking to stock rom. Everybody has its own requirements,needs &a... moreHanging is something that was regular when I just started using the HD. and what trying out every peace of software I could get my hands on.
But now that I have settled on what works and know what I don’t use, I have customize to meet my needs.
You must have read the list I gave of things you can get rid of to clear ROM space that the OS need to work ok. Well after I do that and setup every thing the way I want, including installing programs and changing setting. I have just over 90mb free on internal memory. I still get lag from time to time. On a custom dialer interface I use but that happen maybe one or twice a month. Note I said lag and not crash/hang.
One thing I would tell people to stay away from are modes to the task bar, ever one I have tried before leads to multiple hangs a day.
Yes I do use word, task and calendar and sync with outlook as well as “my phone”, I even found a tweak that lets you have more than one hotmail account active on the phone for email. I did not mention them as a problem in the cooked ROMs I have used because it was not a problem.
My problems were with msn chat, footprints, digital compass, sim internal database and the fm radio. Different ROM’s where (missing/not work correct) 1 or more of them.
Anthony, 19 Aug 2010See, something is always missing that I am using. That is why I am stick with the original UK ... moreI understand your point for sticking to stock rom. Everybody has its own requirements,needs & expectation when it comes to smartphone.I'm totally PIM person. For me appointments, calender, ms office are the most imp features....of course basic phone, sms & smooth operation. There are so many other features in hd2 (i called them... half-azz gimmick features)....which i do not use and I do not even want to know. I just simply can not take hanging & freezing on any platform. I'm pretty sure your phone hangs too at least 1-2 times a day unless you lie to me. I have couple of frens with hd2 ...having same problem.
So you have a choice....Extra ram (128mb), more rom space, stability & batterylife VS your footprint. There's nth wrong trying though. You can always come back to stock....its little pain in neck though.
As I said...there's no digital compass on menu but it gives you distance, direction of location. Again... even if you are missing sth on this rom...you can always get help from xda like i did.
The KING, 19 Aug 2010To set a song as RingTone in HD2 follow these steps..
1. Open File Explorer
2. Goto the Song... moreYo.
You are killing your ROM free space by hold on the mp3 and picking set as ring tune.
That makes a copy of the mp3 on internal memory.
If you want a mp3 to show up in the ring tone list, all you have to do is save it to the root of the storage cad (save it on the storage card outside of all folders)
A next tip that allot of people don’t know is….
You can set custom ringtones to people in your contact list.
By going to edit the contact you want a special tone for and picking “more” and then set the tone for that person.
Syrus, 19 Aug 2010I am not into camera thing….I hardly use phone to take pic as I have canon. So I use footprint... moreDon’t misunderstand me. I’m not saying people should not use cooked ROMs. I’m just saying on my HD2 I don’t see the need for it, like I did not the HD.
And the way hardware development is going, by the time a good cooked ROM (to me) comes out, it would be time to just get a new phone. Because the hardware on this maybe so dated.
Syrus, 19 Aug 2010I am not into camera thing….I hardly use phone to take pic as I have canon. So I use footprint... moreSee, something is always missing that I am using. That is why I am stick with the original UK ROM for now (and do my own modifying  ) . The digital compass working with footprints is important. It not only gives cardinal directions like the US version, but it also puts a green dot in the direction of your target and gives the distance as well. This is very useful when dealing with sites that are off road.
As for the camera, you are correct; it can’t replace my Olympus SLR.
High Tech, 12 Oct 2009Will get this as soon as released!!! Hopefully by end of Oct 19th or Nov 1st or Dec 1st. Heard... moreim not argueing but there is no point in 12 mpx cam. digital slr cameras dont use 12 mpx couse it makes no difference. everything that is above 10 mpx is only used for cropping and making jumbo posters. so 5 mpx in phones is surely enough. other than that, resolution and colours make photos look better.
Anthony, 19 Aug 2010Ok check this on your cooked ROM and tell me if it still works?

So I use footprint just for fun……(nice little features that let u know where pic was taken). But I think you use this features for your profession….may be you need precise data. Here is the answers to your questions:
1) When you use footprint…..the first thing it does is…..try to lock into gps satellite. If it is indoor or not clear sky…..it also gives you option of "Find on Map". If you choose this option …it opens up Google map where you can select the location…..then it gives you detail of compass (degree, North, south etc). I do not see separate "compass" on menu but what I see is it does give you the result....i mean distance, direction etc of that location.There is also option for recording your voice & write texts.
2)You can set regular picture as footprint also.
Syrus, 19 Aug 2010Things have changed a lot since your last Feb rom. I always complain about hangs & freezes... moreOk check this on your cooked ROM and tell me if it still works?
Flip a footprint, then tap menu.
1. Do you see “show on map and does it show the footprint location on google map?
2. Do you see digital compass in the same menu and does it work to give the distance and direction to the location of that footprint?
Every cook rom i have tried before took this out.
They also always take out the ability to make a foot print from a standard pic from your photo album after the fact.
Tell me if your cooked ROMs have this and please done lie. I use this allot as a quick passable surveying tool to help make location plans by scaling the Google satellite image.

3. Tap and Hold the Song till you see a context menu.
4. The last option you see is "Set As Ringtone". Tap it and Enjoy.
Internally you have to have all your ringtones in the folder My Ringtones. If you dont have and you want it as ringtone, you got to follow the above method and the phone will copy the song itself!
my hd2 always get hang or freeeze while am on the internet...pls advise me what to do. its mostly when the battery is on 30percent this problem occur, but when d battery is 50percent upwards it doesn't give me any problem.
