New Official Update for European HD2 – T-Mobile USA Users, Do Not Install This!
Not to long ago, there was a leak of a new official rom for the T-Mobile USA HD2. So as not to forget about the European counterpart of this wonderful device, hTC has just released an official update for the OS, as pointed out by XDA member MuratNL. hTC promises several updates, particularly in the performance department, including better handling of the processor by the system overall, which would make the whole experience more “enjoyable”. As with any new base, this probably comes loaded with updated drivers and maybe even a few updates to some hTC apps.
The only warning to be heed in here is to not flash this on your device if you have a T-Mobile USA HD2 variant. hTC describes it as “undesired” results. I call that possibly bricking the device. The update process is simple though as with any rom flash to a WM device. However, if you are not certain on how to do this, there are several guides available floating around in the forums.
Just Spotted on HTC European site:
