Well my shutdown button on my HD2 is not working now... Don't know why???? I haven't dropped it or anything... I put on a screen protector on the HD2 and powered back on the device. It worked fine, but know I cannot power of the HD2.. When I try to power off using xdashutdown app, it starts to shut down, but turns right back on... Even pressing the shut off button on the HD2 does nothing anymore. Want shut off or suspend the device...... That really sucks........ Has anyone else had this problem???????????????????????
Dwip, 05 Apr 2010Hi there, I use Nokia 5800 XpressMusic now. But, it's camera and RAM sucks. I'm planning to bu... moreI also find the phone to be powerful enough to preview thumbnail pictures of high quality size (e.g. 5MB per picture) without much lag.
I use Resco Photo Viewer instead of the HTC Album.
The only things missing from this phone are stereo speakers (on the sides of the phone or top & bottom), and a nice 8MP camera. Otherwise, it is a great, powerful, and stable phone (at least the US version).
My phone has not frozen even once, except when my SIM card went berzerk.
The key is to know what you are doing (e.g. multi-tasking, closing unused programs, auto soft reset, and etc...).

ROM and RAM is more than enough.
With WM, you can manage your playlist way better than... let's say N97 or even iphone.
You just don't scan your library. You can browse to specific file, folder, and pinpoint your favorite playlist from different folders with ease. All that done from your phone unlike some others...
WM better file management (i.e. file explorer). I can imagine about WP7 with all the hubs settings to memorize.
Hi there, I use Nokia 5800 XpressMusic now. But, it's camera and RAM sucks. I'm planning to buy Htc HD2. It has 5 MP camera and I also like the configurations. So, could U suggest me if it would be a better choice to move to HTC HD2 or I shall lOOk for someother brand? Help me plz with this suggestion and thanx in advance:)
Yeah, don't forget to SOFT RESET from time to time after some installations. That's the trick too.
Syrus, 05 Apr 2010Anthony, I like to reinstall 1.66 rom. I've been getting error message "problem has occur... moreIf 1.66 is the ROM already running on the phone all you really have to do is a “hard reset” not flash it over.
Flashing from your PC is when you want to change your ROM.
How did I do the ROM change with you the first time?
How to do a true hard reset....
1. Power off the phone.
2. Hold the volume up and down at the same time.
3. Keep holding it and tap the power key.
4. Release it when you see the gray screen with blue writing
5. Follow on screen instructions.
It you get any other screen than that gray screen with the blue writing then you did not hold down the two keys long enough (and you may have to take out the battery to restart)

At some point you going to have to just hope on and try it, knowing that there is someone there that did it before to help you.
It’s the same thing for hacking the SPL and I am here, so stop texting and just do :-)
What is the rom # you have now?

I tried to install FRING and infact successfully did it with ease. However I'm unable to launch the app by clicking the icon (that I see in start menu).
Am I going wrong somewhere ?
Advance thanks :-)
Anthony, 05 Apr 2010 See "Anonymous" just made my point for me.
You ask for answers without giving deta... moreAnthony, I like to reinstall 1.66 rom. I've been getting error message "problem has occurred with severices.exe" & also problem with other apps. The reason I want to do is...when i flashed 1.66 rom with your help...I had message in my pc that "this program may not have installed properly"...plus i did not do "hard reset" after flashing new rom.
Everything has been backed up. I also have a copy of 1.66 rom in my pc. Advise me on this. Just hook phone on active syn mode and double click ROM on my pc??
One more thing, I like to hack my spl with hspl this time...even though i do not need for this. Is it ok? or no need to? Thanks

You ask for answers without giving details and you get answers with no reasons why.
And he would be right in saying what he said because the iphone dose do all the things you asked for. so why you want to change?
Ness, 04 Apr 2010Well, hi Anthony...so as U read I'm an Iphone 3G user and this means that O'm more media-centr... moreOk everything you called there are basic smart phone functions
Any “ok” smart phone should be able to do those things or it should not be class as smart.
You need to go into details of what you looking for in a phone, if you want an answer to if the HD2 is the right thing for you or if you should look at a next phone.
What you think is “All in All” may not be “all in all” to a next reader here.
Because someone could say the hd2 is not all in all because it does not have a front cam or stereo laud speakers, or voice commands like the nexus one.
Give more details of what your “all in all” phone must have and must be able to do in a little more detail

I don’t like that.

Do yourself a favour and download the user manual from the HTC site.
It is a PDF file and can be found under support. If you read the book you will not ask such basic questions about using the phone and what it has and how to use it.
suzafan, 05 Apr 2010Now the things are getting clearer and clearer :)
I just dont't understand how to save my ori... moreYou don’t save your ROM
You write down your ROM version number so you can download it from XDA website. If you want to put it back on.
And as I explained the first time the SPL and digital signature is built into the ROM.
This is not something you talk to understand, you just have to man up and do it. I have done flashing 5 different ways just for the experience
SPL, goldcard, SSPL, HSPL and SD card flash.
I can tell you HSPL is a no brainer
No point in me trying to teach you how it is undone if you don’t even know what it looks like to do it in the first place.
