Google Nexus One vs. HTC Touch HD2 - Review
Touch hd2 mini, 11 Feb 2010HTC is going to release HD2 mini. I knew it when they released a presently complete mobile pho... moreAlong with the smaller screen will come smaller CPU and smaller ram. Making it no better than a HTC TOUCH HD with a win mo 6.5 cooked rom. But it will cost you more than doing that. So why waste your time buying HD2 mini later? If you think HD2 is to big just get a HTC touch HD now and mod it.
Just dropped my HD2 on the concret ground...................................................... Luckly I purchased a hard plastic case from ebay. That really protected my phone. The only damage was to the case top corner........... I would say get a hardcase for your HD2. It's a GOOD investment to protect the phone. It was in a leather case that had the top exposed (hardcase was secondary protection)..........
HTC is going to release HD2 mini. I knew it when they released a presently complete mobile phone with a large (too large???) screen.
I will buy the mini; maybe it will be 3.5 or 3.2 inches
Im looking at buying a HD2 in the near future and was just wanting to read up on what you can/cant do to winmo. I have come across flashing the ROM and Cooked ROMs. Now, im a total n00b when it comes to this and i want to change that. Now, whats a ROM? Is it like the firmware/software on it? When you flash the ROM is that the winmo equivalent of jailbreaking an iphone? If you could please just tell me what a ROM and a Cooked ROM is in the simplest form than i will be really happy.
Anthony, 11 Feb 2010How long is your warranty from o2 for?
Not your SIM service plan but your phone warranty?
Hi Anthony, soz but I cant seem to find any paperwork that advises how long my warranty lasts - I presume its the usual 12-month period... unless I do something to invalidate it like use a registry editor or the like(!)
I see that "Arcanus" has just posted his success in upgrading his Vodaphone HD2 to the new 1.66 ROM, and has unlocked the extra RAM too, so would love to try this too - although being a newbie to WinMo I'm paranoid about getting something wrong.
Whilst I appreciate you have given detailed advice on this forum, is there a step-by-step "Dummys Guide To..." upgrading the ROM for hard-of-thinking newbies like me?
Arcanus, 11 Feb 2010hello i can tell u that i am with vodafone uk which is crap! vodafone does not support t... moreGO FOR IT.... I'm going to update my HD2 with Miri ROM v4.0 today. Just downloaded it. I say give it a try if you don't like it, go back to HTC ROM???????? Only thing I hate is installing software back on the phone. But this time I'm going to put on just the software I need. The last time I put on like 22 games and around 11 apps. Also I plan on keeping a log on what I install to HD2 memory and what apps I install to storage card to make it easier next time (WM7 update)............................
B2K, 11 Feb 2010FYI,
I got mine from eXpansys UK and it came with the 1.48 WWE ROM. I'm using 1.66.405.2 WW... moreMines doesn't work... I can only download with my S/N if it list United Kingdom ROM... Right now I'm using custom ROMs (Miri ROM v2. Will put on v4 tonight)....
The Miri ROM v2 works well on my HD2... I think the v4 has the NEW eBook Reader Tab that's on the TMobile HD2 coming out.... Will post later on the results of the Miri ROM v4???????
Now since I can update my ROM with custom ROMs I'm like a kid in a candy STORE......... Just trying to see which one works the best until WM7 comes from HTC......
High Tech, 11 Feb 2010So are U saying the WWE ROM is HTC factory ROM????? I didn't know I had a dealer ROM. I though... moreFYI,
I got mine from eXpansys UK and it came with the 1.48 WWE ROM. I'm using 1.66.405.2 WWE now ;) i.e. my serial worked in the HTC site.
Anthony, 09 Feb 2010Your wifi problem, I don’t know if I would call it a bug or and oversight on HTC’s part.
That... moreSorry for the late reply. It has been a bit busy for me lately. ya i will considering to do an upgrade for practicing purposes and of course at the same time i want to have really good experince with my first WinMo phone ( HTC HD2). I am still trying to catch up with what you guys have been talking from the previous post like how to cook the ROM and increase the RAM.
Please assist me as i am very new with WinMo and i will let you know when i am ready. It has been 2 weeks now that i use this phone and i really enjoy it so much:)
i can tell u that i am with vodafone uk
which is crap! vodafone does not support the HD2
so every single cust that had a HD2 from vodafone are stuck with the factory software which was causing problems! vodafone will not aprove any software upgrade for this phone anymore!
how stupid is that????
but thanks to anthony i got the problem solved! i've dobe the HSPL and after the upgrade to the ROM Leo 1.66 WWE
which is working fine! now i am looking to upgrade to the Miri ROM which unlocks the extra RAM on the phone!
So i defenitly advise to do the HSPL for who ever haves dealer phone do it :D
once more thanks anthony!!!
High Tech, 11 Feb 2010So are U saying the WWE ROM is HTC factory ROM????? I didn't know I had a dealer ROM. I though... moreWell for one “WWE” has the 1.66 and that does not need any of the hotfix files.
But you are using cooked roms now, so that doesn’t matter to you anyway.
I’m just saying if you are going back to original roms there will be no need to go back to what you had if you can move on to HTC UK factory ROM.
All the phones have a region lock that is what the SPL is (it will not block you from using different SIM’s but I will block you from changing to a rom that was not intended for you.)
On the other hand some providers get HTC to put in a SIM lock for there branded ROM’s to keep you from taking the phone and going to a next provider.
But thanks to SSPL and HSPL we can get around that.
Anthony, 11 Feb 2010We both have UK phones but the difference is. My own came straight from HTC with a factory rom... moreSo are U saying the WWE ROM is HTC factory ROM????? I didn't know I had a dealer ROM. I thought since the phone is factory unlocked it was from HTC themselves???? Next time I will buy from Clove in the future..............
Anthony, 11 Feb 2010Hold on to that s/n from Jason you will want to use it if HTC comes out with a newer and bette... moreCan I use thst ROM on my phone?????? What would be the diff btwn the United Kingdom ROM and the WWE ROM????????

Mark, 11 Feb 2010Are there any other UK-based o2 customers here who have upgraded to the latest HTC rom - eithe... moreI know it’s not o2 UK but there is someone in here that did it and they got there’s from o2 Germany and still using the o2 Germany SIM.
I would like to think if they were having problems I would be the first to know seeing I was the one that helped them make the change.
Anthony, 11 Feb 2010Are you mad? They will not give permission for that. O2 can only give permission for O2 ROM... moreAre there any other UK-based o2 customers here who have upgraded to the latest HTC rom - either with or without o2's permission? If so, let me know how you got on - I'd rather hear some success stories or advice as to how to avoid pitfalls rather than make, and learn from, my own (costly) mistakes and knacker my HT2.
High Tech, 11 Feb 2010I should've purchased from www.clove.co.uk. As you said "they are official HTC dealers in... moreHold on to that s/n from Jason you will want to use it if HTC comes out with a newer and better rom for there factory phones in the future
