Hi, Hi Tech over to you. Could you help with the question about Esword mobile below.
I know you recommended Laridian, which I tried but I think Esword is the best.
Thanks in advance for your help.
Adam Conolly, 04 Mar 2010Hi,Anthony I can't thank you enough for all your help in making this phone a great user experi... moreChanging CPU Chip?? It may work like a desktop PC but itís not. I canít help you with that one. itís not an easy snap out snap in thing. You need someone with more know how than me.
As for the program you calledÖ. Is that an e-book reader? Canít you use a next brand? Some cooked ROMís come with e-book readers built in. (ask High Tech which one he recommends. I donít use e-booksĒ)
I donít know how that program is made up but I have found for old programs that have dropdown menus made to use with a stylus, instead of taping the menu button it is easier to tap the default word in the menu and the drop down will open. Then pick on the word in the line I want and not the line it self.
Hi,Anthony I can't thank you enough for all your help in making this phone a great user experience thru this user forum. I am having a nice time with my new 1.66 rom and yes it is far better than the 1.43 one I had initially from TMobile.
I however have some other related questions
1. I am a very heavy user of Esword app on my mobile device. I presently use an ipaq 214 which has a resistive screen and the Esword app words fine on it. I was excited about the HD2 becos of the 4.3 inches screen , fast processor and WinMo OS since Esword only works on WinMo. But after getting my HD2 i discovered that the app has not been modified for WVGA. Though you can instal it, is very difficult to use as the panels for selecting books and verses are too small to select and select ok is very dificult. The guy who used to support the app has stopped doing that. My question is - is there a way to have this sorted ??? Pls this is really impt to me.
2. Like i mentioned above, i have an ipaq 214 with a 620Mhz processor, is there a way i can tweak my ipaq by getting a snapdragon 1ghz processor to work on it and make it faster. ??????
Thanks in advance

I can tell you this without thinking twice about it.
hack your phone's SPL with HSPL and install the HTC 1.66 ROM, your phone will thank you.

If you have a provider branded phone you will have to hack it to get the ROM update. neither your provider Nor HTC are updating Branded ROMs.
if you have a Gerneric/not branded HD2, you will get the ROM and instuctions on the HTC web site.

How do you play RMVB media files on your HD2? I've got a couple of rmvb videos but they cant be played on the winmo media player or Coreplayer. Tried downloading and installed the mobile real player but it can't play those files either.
Hi anthony,another thing that i forgot to ask u is did there is any shortcut for me to check that the sms is been sent whitout changing to traditional mode and check it in the sent item/outbox folder and other then activate the delivery report. Thanks.

How do i download the ROM 1.66. Did i have to connect my phone to PC and downloaded from there or i can just send my phone to HTC service centre and ask them to do it for me. Im actually not a very hightech minded person and this is my first smartphone. Thanks.
I got my hd2 yesterday, and it is T-mobile branded (unfortunatelly). I found that my data connections are limited and possibly locked to T-Mobile GPRS network (besides wifi of course). Does any one with such ROM confirm that?
note: i am not T-mobile subscriber.
I have noticed that most of the post here on HTC HD2 is 90% having so many problems with the unit and a lot of users are terribly frustrated. Even simple sending and receiving of SMS is a problem with HD2. Not really worth at all the invest a huge amount of money with HD2 and I'm glad I postponed to buy it. I have the reason to wait for XPERIA X10 which is I think far, far better, plus the fact that for me 4.3" is too big already unlike XPERIA X10 with 4" which is slightly bigger than iPhone.

Type phrase below in the search bar on that site
ďMake sense of digital video filesĒ
Watch the video you will learn something.
After you understand what you watched, the Supported codec in the picture tab on the HD2 are H.263, 3GPP2, MPEG4, MOTION JPGE, and H.264
And to get more codecís install CorePlayer for a WVGA screen.
If you are ripping a DVD to put on your phone use DVD Catalyst 3
Or any program that can Rip at
Video quality not more than 700kbps
Audio not more than 128 kbps
And codec... any one from the lest above (H.264 is the best)
And remember from the video i asked you to watched... that H.264 is the codec not the file ending.
once a video has the right codec, you just have to copy and past it to the memory card.
