HTC Desire HD Firmware Downgrade Guide
When HTC released their 1.72.405.3 OTA update for the HTC Desire HD, it could not be rooted and many people got stuck with the stock ROM. Now, thanks to XDA member CuBz90 we have a downgrade method. After this process, you can use any root (+ S-OFF) method you want, your device will be just like any other Desire HD with older build version.

The whole process is delicate, so be sure to know what you are doing before proceeding.
