An accelerometer dose not detect gestures it ... moreThank you Antony but I did not get confused between accelerometer and gesture control: "[...]It will also support changing screen orientation when turning the device sideways, just like the iPhone does, but using the camera, not an accelerometer." as strange as it might sounds, this is from this article: http://www.gsmarena.com/hot_windows_mobile_7_insight-news-399.php
Still, as this is almost 2 years old, I think I just have to be patient and await for the first feedback on WM7.

I'd second the request for fool-proof step-by-step newbie instructions for the install, if it's not too much trouble ...
this would work for any language version, right? i. e. it wouldn't matter which market the original htc rom was released for?
really looking forward to your opinion once you've played with it a bit more ...

What I really ... moreSome things for you to think about…
An accelerometer dose not detect gestures it detects motion of the device it is in.
The multi touch screen is for gestures.
Last time I checked front cameras are put in the top left/right corner of cell phones not the center of the phone. So how is it going to see a gesture I do with my hand that is holding the bottom of the phone and is in the center, near to the screen most of the time? Am I to do these gestures with my face?
Microsoft is know to promises allot of things and then don’t deliver on half, just look at windows vista or windows millennium for who can remember that far back.
Beta tester will get it long before the official date. And XDA will have cooked roms long before HTC or any other comp starts to sell a phone with it.
The only mandatory equipment Microsoft has asked manufactures for so far to get the license is… there device must have a windows physical key. No mention of front or back camera for the OS to work.
So until it is out for beta testing, I’m not going to speculate on what it can or can’t do.

What I really want though, is to be able to use the new gesture control features from WM7 when it comes out... Do you have (Anthony and others) any confirmations that WM7 will use a front camera and not the accelerometer?

you don't have a problem
new phones come with a thin layer on shipping plastic on the screen, on the HD2 it is put on so precise that some people don't see it.
just peel it off.
but before you do i recommend that you do buy the official screen protector.

and just repeating what you read
the screen is only 480p so why do you want to watch 720p video on it?
i am using windows mobile 5 apps on it with no problem.
i used the patch and don't have pink in my videos.
and there is a patch for the sms on the htc site.
and i would love too see you use your old wm apps on a Android phones.
Hi friends, Please help me!
I bought a new HTC HD2 last week. It was working well.But today morning I found a 5cm x 1 cm irregular bubble like thing in the screen. Appears just like bubble beneath a screen card. But I haven't used any screen card or any sticker and I am sure nobody else have handled it. I bought it from authorized dealer and the set is brand new. This was not present till yesterday and I am sure that it was not exposed to water.Any idea what could be the problem?The phone is still working nicely. Please advise.

High Tech, 03 Jan 2010The WM7 requirements I read said front camera is optional. The HD2 will get WM7........I´m sure that HD2 will get the WM7 update but I am very scpetical that the gesture controls using the front camera will work on the HD2...
I was about to purchase the HD2 but this sounds like a bad news to me and I will have to wait for the WM7 release unless someone can confirm before...
Thank you very much!!
I've been very disappointed with the HTC HD2. There are many bugs still present, which haven't been fixed by HTC. The 'SMS send' bug is completely debilitating. It results in many SMSes not being sent. SMS is a basic phone feature that any cheap old phone should be able to do properly.
There's also the Pink Camera bug. It has caused the centre of photos to turn pink. You can download the HTC patch to fix it, which you transfer to the phone from a Windows PC with a USB cable. The patch does fix the pink problem for still photos, but not for video. So every unit shipping has this pink video problem. The phone has a Snapdragon processor which is supposed to be able to decode 720p video, but it doesn't work. I read that this is a bug with Windows Mobile.
You can forget about using your old apps with this phone. Most of the collection of Windows Mobile applications were designed for stylus pen input, which most Windows Phones have. Except that that HTC HD2 is the only Windows Phone with a finger multi-touch screen. And there's the problem when you try to use applications (and OS) designed for stylus on a phone designed for finger touch. They often just don't work.
Because of this, my next phone will be an Android phone.

.net 3.5 is already built into the rom so you don’t have to install it.
Default mail list now has 6 choices for account type instead of the default 4
File explorer, office mobile, adobe reader and email auto rotate without installing any 3rd party software.
And the new Documents tab shows your (word, excel and pdf) files on the phone with a preview. it is even seeing those files in e-mail attachments.
So far so good when i find more I’ll let you guys know.

And i called him on it.
Look at his ID Mx@E
And the ID of the person before and after him it’s all the same ID
As you can see my ID is LKmt and yours is kNkH
By the way i put on the cooked rom and my phone is still working :-)
Now i have to test it, will let you guys know what bugs i run into.
I did get and error about not seeing the phone
And it turns out that your PC has to install new USB drivers when the phone is in booth loader mode
So i just disconnected the data cable, plug it back in and let the drivers install. Then i ran the rom installation again.
The dutty rom i downloaded came with the SSPL already in the .rar file to unpack.
