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???
Anthony, 10 Dec 2009now that htc has the fix for the camera on there site, there is no reason to change your rom o... morehello again antony
i thing i gone give up.i have a lot of problem.now finally i installed phm regedit but when im try to get a serial with QMAT my computer close the aplication(maybe i have to buy the licens?)
coz one problem its not enough after i instaled phm regeditor and i conect my phone to computer i cant see it.i can see just like removable disk in diskdrive mode.any sugestion?????
High Tech, 10 Dec 2009Tried to download ROM update but the link is broke. Cannot download ROM. Tried to download fro... morethe link on the HTC site for the rom is not broken. the rom is only given to you if your s/n is a match for an upgrade.
remember when I said the roms on htcpedia are original but you have to do some tweaking to get it on? well now you know how roms are legally given. your serial has to match the update rom they are giving. even if you get a serial that would let you download it, it still will not install when the rom checks your phone. that is also why the roms will not install when you get it from htcpedia with out the use of a hack.
re my last post, my current rom is 188.8.131.52 wwewhich is dated June 09..
Quakeman, 10 Dec 2009how about those things in the new ROM update, taken from htc.com
1.Flip... moreThis is a reply to the post from Quakeman, and also a question to the ever helpful and v.knowledgeable Anthony.
My uk, o2 supplied, HD2 seems to be one of the lucky ones re thus pink spot issue, as my images have been blemish free.
However, I'm interested in this ROM ugrade and the implications for improving the music player, etc. (see link - http://www.htc.com/europe/SupportViewNews.aspx?dl_id=804&news_id=401 )
Problem is HTC say the upgrade will... "erase any data stored on the device. Once you proceed with the upgrade, the system can not be downgraded again. This is a generic software update. Any additional software or settings provided by your mobile operator or company will be lost. If you require this customization, please contact your supplier first before upgrading..."
Is it indeed correct that I need to phone o2 before upgrading the ROM (not that they will have a clue as to why I'm calling, their tech "help" is light years before the help I get here!) and that my phone will lose all its nice apps, facebook, twitter and youtube settings and contact details...?
Tried to download ROM update but the link is broke. Cannot download ROM. Tried to download from every dropdown (EU1, EU2, USA, and Asia) couldn't download. Is anyone else having this problem???????? Did download the camera fix, but does this fix the video recording in pink as well???????
how about those things in the new ROM update, taken from htc.com
1.Flipping back and forth between songs is easier than ever. Whether you are listening to a defined playlist, or letting your phone shuffle your songs for you, your music will play continuously and fluidly.
2.Taking full advantage of the G-Sensor, Opera can switch seamlessly from portrait to landscape mode to allow more flexibility and allow for you to browse your websites however you want.
3.Staying connected to your loved ones is as important to you as it is to us, and we’ve enhanced our voice quality even more in this update. Now updated, we’re delivering crystal clear sound quality, making it even easier to feel close to your loved ones, even when you are on the move.

htc finally fixed the pink issue of the htc hd2 and kept their promise to make their customers happy. and i ordered this phone from clove a week ago and still havent receive it, hope to get it in the next couple days.
Anonymous, 10 Dec 2009Hi, Im just wondering, coz today I went to buy a hd2 frm phone4u and sales man says its not... moreHere's an interesting one. Vodafone, which is one of the few carriers in the world right now with access to HTC's HD2, is reportedly not going to stock the handset any longer once its current supply evaporates. The reason? Why, that's a fantastic question! According to a company spokesperson, there has been a "massive amount of interest" in the big-screen mobile, with initial stock "selling out quickly and subsequent deliveries used to fulfill backorders." Call us crazy, but it seems a wee bit foolish to can a product that's selling well -- unless, of course, Voda has a certain amount of iPhones that it'll be required to sell just a few months from now (or else buy 'em itself). Whatever the case, we're told that the operator "will not [be] re-stocking the HTC HD2 for general consumer sales once current stock runs out," so if you're jonesing for one, ten minutes ago would've been a great time to buy.

The most of the "difficult question " what the people asking from you and the exp... morethe solutions to your E card on the HD2 is easy. just copy the link to the card from the email to the address bar of "internet explorer" not Opera.
to copy any text from an email
press and hold till the menu pop up
then pick "make selection"
Anthony, is it safe to upgrade/flash my rom at this point in time? what is the risk involve? i have version 1.43.488.1. i want to remove this pink color every time i take picture. And also the wifi connection get suddenly disconnected when the phone goes to sleep. you made mentioned in your post that these will all disappear with the new rom. is it true?
thanks a lot
now that htc has the fix for the camera on there site, there is no reason to change your rom other than if you need to change language.
note: when you are changing roms to get a next language, don't look for an updated rom of what you already have. just download the rom that is in the language you want. then do the hack from the link
