Hmn... Conversations here make me want to go for the Bravo. I can't believe how problematic this phone could be. And here I was thinking of how 6.5 was "supposed" to have fixed the issues plaguing the WinMo platform.
I guess I'll have to revert to the perfect combination of iPhone + BlackBerry.
High Tech, 11 Dec 2009Why would you want to do that?? Just buy a blackberry.The reason why the guy wants Blackberry software is because some corporates are using Blackberry Enterprise Server to deliver outlook on the phone. Any other model is no longer supported on BES, in effect this means anyone without Blackberry cannot be added to the BES server to sync with outlook. I worked for a Hepldesk for a multinational where people were forced to change over to Blackberry from other smart phones :((

But when I copied the same link I click, and passed it in the address bar of internet explorer it worked just fine. I could even click the play button that was an image in the card and the video played. I did see the icon to download flash but that is for a desktop PC not flash for a mobile phone. But explorer supports flash that works with that site right out of the box, so why you trying to install one that was not made for this phone?
That is what could have complicated things for you (maybe I don’t know for shore). Go in “application” and try to uninstall what ever you installed and then reboot.
Don’t try to open it in Opera the version on the phone does not support flash.

and the fix is for every one a rom lest than 1.60.--
didn't you read it on the HTC site?
High Tech, 11 Dec 2009HTC support called my phone to tell me the camera fix was there to download. Also told the lad... moreWhat you waiting on? Just install the camera fix.
It is an “.exe” file you get to keep. Put it on your SD and run it. If a new rom comes out, all you have to do is run it again if you need to. The fix is not part of the rom it can be installed and uninstall at anytime by any one on any HD2 version. Hacked or not :-)

For xp you Download and install “Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5”
For vista you Download and install “Windows Mobile
Device Center 6.1”
If you have already done that and you still not seeing your phone in sync mode it is because you have a USB1.1 port on your PC and this phone is USB2.
To fix this just slow the port on the phone by going to
“USB to PC”
Then uncheck “Enable fast data synchronization”

Anonymous, 11 Dec 2009Can anyone tell me if i could hack n install blackberry software in this device???Why would you want to do that?? Just buy a blackberry.

Also told the lady that couldn't download the ROM on there site. She took my S/N and said will check into it for me and call me back. Will wait to install the camera fix when ENG UK ROM is available. Camera working fine with posted tweak someone posted awhile back.
Never said I couldn't get ROM. Said it would be lame if some got it and others didn't........
Can anyone tell me if i could hack n install blackberry software in this device???
Mark, 10 Dec 2009This is a reply to the post from Quakeman, and also a question to the ever helpful and v.knowl... moreMark every thing that was said to you about the rom is true.
And let me get this clear with you.
1. UK o2 HD2 is not an unlocked phone. The roms on the HTC site are for the unlocked phones. You have to get your rom from o2
2. The update roms that HTC have on there site right now are not English roms they are in the native language of Greek, Russia, Norway, Germany, Spain, Netherlands, France, Czech, Poland and Italy.
3. If you get and use the updated English roms off of the HTCPedia web site. You will have to hack your phone to get them on. (none of those ROMs are o2 ROMs)
4. If you chose to do that you can’t call o2 for any technical help because you took off there rom. So you will have to setup or fix any problems on your own.
5. You can downgrade a phone by hacking and putting back the old rom (my old rom is on htcpedia, my phone came from “clove” so it never had a cell provider rom on it) but in your case there is no old o2 rom to download, so you have no rom to downgrade with.
6. Before you do any change of rom you should always backup your info with one of these programs…PIM backup, Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft MyPhone.
7. Once you use a none o2 rom on your o2 phone you will get back facebook, twitter and youtube because they are standard to the HD2 phone. But you will not get back any o2 branded software that was put on the phone just for o2 users.
So now you have to ask your self this… “do I want to hack my phone to get the update or do I want to keep any o2 branded software that my phone came with?”
Only then you will know if to hack your phone and be on your own, not asking o2 for any help. Or if you will be a good boy and not interfere with the rom that was given to you by o2.
one thing you can do is... install the patch for the camera and see if it does anything for your phone.
and if it does not you can just uninstall it from "Application" in the settings tab

by the way, can you read any thing on the phone so you know you clicking the right things?
Robby, 10 Dec 2009Dear Anthony,
it's Robby the guy from US with the 800$ birthday HTC HD2.
i went to the H... morethat is right the roms on htc site did not update the english roms. but there are english phone selling with the updated english rom just not UK English. the good people at htcpedia were kind enuff to have them there for download by porting them off of phone already on the market.
English UK or English Europe, its all english to me, and I have no problem with hacking my phone because I know I not sending it back.
you wanted to know how you will know if a rom on the htc site is right for you? well when you click to download you have to put in your serial number, which is under the battery and if the rom is for you the rom will download but if it is not for you it will not.
when it comes to doing it the way I did, any leo rom I want to use is the one for me :) but I only speak english so I only look for the english ones lol
I can still put on the camera patch from htc because that patch is for all leo roms under a particular version not just language.
High Tech, 11 Dec 2009So you're telling me some people will get this update and not everybody. I would like to go to... moreI did not say you can't get it. I told you how to get it and you said you want to wait on htc. so just keep waiting and when the uk rom comes out on there site you will get it then. for now you could just install the camera fix. that one is for every body, It's not a rom.
I couldn't wait for a uk rom update so I did the hack and changed my rom to the europe english update.
so don't say can't, when you know you made the choice not to hack.
Anthony, 10 Dec 2009the link on the HTC site for the rom is not broken. the rom is only given to you if your s/n i... moreSo you're telling me some people will get this update and not everybody. I would like to go to ROM ver. 1.48 if it inhances my device like people are saying. That's lame if I cannot update my phone.
it's Robby the guy from US with the 800$ birthday HTC HD2.
i went to the HTC website and noticed that the ROMs are all in diferent language than English. does that mean that they are not in english and i have to wait until they put an english ROM???!!!
and one more thing how can i know that the HD2 that my cousin is sending for me is from which place and which ROM will be suitable for it???
