i tried to install NAND ANDROID on HD2 but i cant finish it , i install HSPL... moreIf you have reached as far as installing MAGLDR on your phone, you are almost done. All you have to do is install a NAND ROMs because when you installed MAGLDR it cleared you ROM so there is no ROMs on your phone. Which means you have no OS on the phone. That is why its stopping on the white screen.
Did you want to install a NAND Android ROMs or did you just want to make your phone dual boot both android & windows mobile.
If you want to install a NAND Android ROMs follow section 2 or 3 of the link below.
If you want to dual boot. Follow section 5 to remove MAGLDR because you don't need MAGLDR or HSPL to dual boot the phone. The steps and files needed for dual boot is on a next link that i will help you with if that's what you wanted to do.
Anthony, 11 Feb 2011post the link to the gingerbread ROM you are using.I'd be interested (and of course surprised!) to see a Gingerbread and/or Honeycomb ROM already out there for the HD2...
I still like my WM6.5/HTC Sense/Cookie HTB set up so I'll stick with that and FroYou for the time being.
But once I can run WM6.5 and HTC Sense from a SD card alongside FroYo, I'll then flash the WP7 NAND ROM to my HD2 to have 3 o/s on my phone - yay!

hey, guys which is the best to install on hd2 froyo or nand android and what is the best way for all the apps to go into sd card, i have partition the card into fat 32 and ex4 but my internal memory is still going down. pls any suggestions
AnonD-1249, 11 Feb 2011i want to port win mo 7 on my hd2, can u help
You need installed MAGLDR 1.13 or higher on the phone to begin.
Here is a summary guide:
1a. Download and install Windows Development Tools (Google to find one)
1b. Download and install Zune PC App (including any updates)
1c. Download your WP7 Rom (I use the one from this site: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=944995)
I prefer the WP7 Rom from the site because it already has the Built-in ChevronWP7 jailbreak. So no need to bother about unlocking the phone after installing the WP7.
After installing 1a & 1b above, download 1c and …..
2. On the phone enter MAGLDR loader by pressing "Power button"
3. Choose point 5 - "USB Flasher" then press Green button
4. Run DWI.exe (Vista/ W7 user should do that with administrator rights)
5. Done, you have WP7 ROM on your device
6. Connect Phone to PC using USB and run Zune to sync
Find a way to get your Activation Code from Microsoft. Good Luck!
NOTE that unlocking the phone is DIFFERENT from getting the Activation Code. The unlocking makes it possible to install .xap file (apps) on the phone whereas getting the Activation Code gives you “license” to setup your online services(hotmail etc) that will enable you download from Market, play Xbox etc on your phone. It’s a 25 alphanumeric combination (just like the license key on Microsoft Office software). Only Microsoft or their reps can give you a working Activation Code. As I said earlier, I got mine by calling their customer care.

Also didn't see the continue playing all songs in the playlist, or to play one song over and over again... So some features are not active or implimented yet... But still this app will be a nice one..... Cannot wait til final release...... Which should be when the new Honeycomb tablets hits the market soon................

Too locked down for me... I want to customize my phone the way I want, and not have someone tell me what I'm going to use... One day I might want my phone a certain way, and the next I may want to change the look... Don't want to walk around with the same phone as everyone else (WP7).... Will wait on WP8 which should be out in 2012 (according to MS they will update WP series like they do Windows for the desktop. Every two years).... Will hold onto my HD2 til then... I probably will try an Android phone to get HD content and 3D....
I like Android as well. That will be my next purchase. An Android tablet... Then will see what's out there for Android and WP8.....
Get the Honeycomb Music Player for Android 2.1+ for your HD2 running Android. It's a really cool music player. Works just like the Honeycomb Player on the tablets.... See like below:

I presently dual boot Android and WP7 on my HD2 and the both OSes are excellent on this "god phone". The WP7 runs from the NAND while Android is on MicroSD card. ofcourse I partitioned my MicroSD for the both OSes.
And lastly, I download stuff form market now for my (HD2)WP7 cos I was able to get the Activation Code from Microsoft.

What brand of HD2 do you have (Euro or US?). What network are you using: Airtel, MTN, Glo or Etisalat? Did you do any upgrading or what? Anyway am in Lagos - if you are there too, we may take a look at the phone together.
I happened to be using HD2 for about 1 yr now and haven't experienced what you described.
