How To Upgrade Your HTC HD7 Memory To 32 GB
Do you own an HTC HD7? Fed up with the measly 8GB memory? XDA forum member Wolfman017 has posted a tutorial on how to upgrade to a generous 32GB!
Not for the unsteady of hand, you’ll need a SanDisk MicroSD 32 GB Card – note Class 2 only as the Class 4 cards are not compatible. Also note that Kingston or other brands are also not compatible. You’ll also need a Torx screwdriver size 0.4, a little plastic card, some tweezers, a piece of paper, and of course your HTC HD7.

For full details including photos, head on over to the modification thread.

Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
