The HD7 has no card slot for any kind of USER removable memory.
In the tutorial you clearly see that doing the upgrade is a violation of your warranty as you have to take apart the phone.
But I see where I made my mistake.
In point “2” I should have said RAID 0 (not RAID 1…my mistake)
That is why you have to use a class 2 Sandick card.
That is the only way the RAID 0 will work with the internal memory that is built into the phone.
If you don’t know what a RAID 0 is or how it works just google it.
The phone is great but Microsoft has not launched its Marketplace worldwide this is not good.

it has a normal micro SD card added and not flash chip mounted directly on the circuit board like samsung and apple phones (for information, apple's flash ships are made by samsung)
You can find how to do it on XDA developers website ,there's a step by step turorial on how to do it.
But you'll definetely void your warranty!
i think to buy this phone.. but im in confusion whether it is better or the desire hd.. can any1 suggest me the better one pls??

But you can’t run Android on the HD7.
Don’t make the mistake to think that the HD7 and the HD2 is the same thing.
1. HD7 is running the “WP” OS and the HD2 is running the “WM” OS
2. Storage formatting standard for the WP OS is similar to a NTFS RAID 1 but the WP OS uses FAT32.
3. The is no SD card for the HD7, so you can’t boot Android from a SD card on a HD7
4. If you are thinking you can install“NAND” Android ROMs to the internal space…. To date there is no HSPL for the HD7, so how the hell would you get the ROM past the WP ROMs digital signature test?
yes you can install android (even on HD2 you can do that) but it will operate as 2nd OS with 2 boot options. go to htcpedia.com for more details.
can we have this phone changed to android? i mean whatever way...hacks, request etc
it is a good mobile for allo till now
no sync with outlook except with hotmail
no remote access
it shouldnt be released now, it should be postponed till some issue will be resolved
Ray hipkiss, 31 Dec 2010'm currently a Nokia N8 user but I almost ended up getting a HTC Desire. I'm glad I didn't now... morethe next thing you mentioned was a post from Virgin mobile.
Everybody knows that a provider branded phone always has a crippled ROM, in comparison to its counterpart that has a factory unlocked ROM.
Ray hipkiss, 31 Dec 2010'm currently a Nokia N8 user but I almost ended up getting a HTC Desire. I'm glad I didn't now... morelook at the spec of the RAM, ROM and CPU for the "Desire", then look at the same spec of the "Desire HD" that came with 2.2 preinstalled.
is there any wonder why the desire can't handel the Froyo upgrade.
'm currently a Nokia N8 user but I almost ended up getting a HTC Desire. I'm glad I didn't now as my friend who has one tells me that when he is connected to his WiFi network he can't send a MMS.
Also I found this on the Virgin Mobile Forums.
" HTC Desire
95% of our customers should now be on the 2.2 update, we're working with HTC on upgrade path for the rest currently.
We've also recieved reports of the following issues from HTC Desire users on 2.2:
Email randomly deleting
Email service has stopped working
Phones rebooting randomly
Phone screen stops responding
However we've found that a simple factory reset will cure these problems 90% of the time. Please remember to back up all your data before a factory reset as this will restore the phone to when you first recieved it deleting any downloaded applications, text, photos etc "
What a sad state of affairs when a firmware update causes more problems than it solves.
I've also noticed a fair amount of lag on my friends Desire so it's not the mighty phone most people make it out to be.
I'd welcome any feedback on the above comments as long as it's not flame-baiting and is sensible.
