ClockworkMod Recovery for HD2-Android
NAND ROM´s for HTC Leo just started to arrive and with it the ClockworkMod Recovery. XDA member RaiderX303 wrote a complete post explaining how this works to detail. It is fully working except for the ROM Manager support that still has some issues. The latest version 1.1 is now based on a Gingerbread source. Features like flash ROMs in update.zip format, backup and restore ROMs using Nandroid, flash ROMs from the SD card without use of a PC, easilly Wipe all Data/Cache, and many more are present as well.
A full guide with all the how to´s is included, just be sure to know what are you doing before proceeding, this is a delicate process and should be completed properly.
And as always please leave feedback!

As we now have NAND booting for the HD2, its time we also had a way to flash ROMs from the SD aswell so here we have ClockworkMod Recovery compiled for the HD2. It is fully working except ROM Manager support still has some issues. See below for features and how to use.
Because ROMs are not flashed using DAF, a set partition layout is required before flashing any ROMs using recovery, included in the download is DAF which is configured to create the required partitioning, just run as you normally would to flash a NAND ROM and you are set to flash a new ROM through recovery
GOING FROM A DAF FLASHED ROM TO A RECOVERY FLASHED ROM WILL WIPE ALL DATA
IF YOU FLASH ANOTHER ROM USING DAF, RECOVERY WILL NO LONGER WORK CORRECTLY, YOU WILL NEED TO REFLASH THE PARTITIONING TO USE RECOVERY AGAIN
YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO USE AN SD ROM FROM MAGLDR WHILE USING RECOVERY
-Flash ROMs in update.zip format
-Backup and restore ROMs using Nandroid
-Flash ROMs from the SD card without use of a PC
-Easilly Wipe all Data/Cache
-Repartition SD card for use with Apps2SD
-Full Root ADB access
-Fix app permissions
Continue to the recovery thread.
Thanks for the tip, orangekid

Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
