TWRP Running On The HD2!

twrp on hd2

You may remember that a few months ago, TeamWin released their own recovery image for Android devices. Much like ClockworkMod, Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) can be used across a wide variety of devices. Thanks to the efforts of XDA Recognized Developer arif-ali, this highly multi-functional recovery image can also be used in the legendary HD2. This recovery image is still a work in progress but it allows the end user to seamlessly do all the customization that he/she is used to and much more. TWRP specializes in handling partitions in a much more thorough manner than other recovery images as it allows you to select individual partitions to back up, re-size, and much more. It also allows you to customize t. . . READ ON »

Want Faster Android On Your HD2? Data Successfully Moved To EXT Partition

hd2 quadrant

Well, the beloved (and becoming) venerable HTC Leo (aka HD2) still has lots of fight left in it thanks to members developing on it left and right. Every single update to Android devices has gone, one way or another, through the HD2 as well. We have seen advancements of this WM native device excel in the field of Android like no other device (even native Android devices) have seen. In one of his latest roms, XDA member dorimanx has been able to take this on going development to the next step by being able to have data installed on an EXT partition. This has two main advantages: larger sized data partition and more speed as EXT is inherently faster for I/O purposes. As a result of this, the dev decided to run a few Quadran. . . READ ON »

Runnymede+Rhyme Android 2.3.5 Sense 3.5 ROM For HD2

screenshotnu

HTC HD2 is still being the device with most operating systems running on it. Even with all the dual core processor devices popping up, the Leo is still a strong contender. This time, XDA member boxmax shows a freshly created ROM based on a Runnymede Build booting on HD2 -SD Version- with modding MixTheme by XDA member MccMjoon76.

Even more, the themes that come along on the original thread are well suited for giving this great UI its final touches.

This build is based on HTC Bliss WWE 1.10.401.0 and has some bugs around but with your feedback, future versions will be improved.

No More Glitches On Your Sense 3.0 or 3.5 Camera In Your HD2

glitchCamera

The one thing about most Android ports we have seen around here is the fact that there are always things that require a bit more work than others to work properly. The one that remains a constant nuisance for devs is the camera, as it either does not work right off the bat or it is glitchy. Well, the ports for both Sense 3 and 3.5 are not exceptions to this, but it seems that XDA member haldric has created fixes for both of the aforementioned ports. The fixes seem to address video playback issues caused when recording as well as when shooting still pictures. The dev has posted various zip flashable versions, which are intended to address different set ups.

Please share your experiences with these fixes as they seem to be . . . READ ON »

HTC Bliss ROM With Sense 3.5 NAND & SD Now For HD2

Downlaod-HTC-Sense-3.5-for-Desire-HD2

Sense 3.0 was a great improvement on graphics from previous versions. Recently, we saw Sense 3.5 arriving with only some minimal changes.
As the port keeps on making its way through our forums, XDA members boxmax and dungphp have managed to port this to the HTC HD2.

You can get this ROM for SD or NAND but keep in mind that you may find some bugs, so your feedback is very important for future releases.

HTC HD2 Gets Mango Bliss – SD Card And All!

hd2 mango

I had an article published yesterday night for a couple of hours, which due to the magic of Word Press, ended up being completely blank. This article was a plea of help from devs to get someone to aid with a compatibility issue that was hindering Mango on the HD2. Apparently, there were modules in the HD2 governing the SD card that Mango did not recognize/like. Because of this, the card was not being seen by the Mango wielding device. As a result of having lost my article, I figured I would write it again this morning. However, as I was about to get started, I got a tip in my inbox from XDA member Warriorvibhu where he pointed me at the same thread I wrote about yesterday. Much to my surprise, it seems that the devs working on . . . READ ON »

A Tribute to the HTC HD2 – Part One

Quietly-nothing.  It's just brilliant.

The HTC HD2 is the most developed device in the history of XDA-Developers.  Over 1 million posts on more than 45 thousand threads across 17 sub-forums covering five operating systems, the HD2 remains in the top 25 most active devices on XDA almost two years after its release. Its success spoke to all manufacturers about what a smartphone should be like.

I sat down with a friend’s HD2 to hear its story.  I asked about where it came from, the struggles it faced growing up in a Tawainese factory, and how it overcame those struggles to become such a smart phone.  The HD2 blankly stared at me a moment, then said my friend received a new text message from his mother.  No help there.  So, I decided to get the HTC HD2’. . .

Use Your HD2 USB Port As A Host

LEO_USB

The titan of all time, the HD2 still has a lot of mileage left under its 4.3 inch hood. Even in its native Windows Mobile 6.5, people seem to still be going rather hard at it in terms of development. In this new development, XDA member Cotulla from the DFT team brings us another jaw dropping development on this wonderful device. It seems that after a long time, mainly due to him putting this project off to make room for things like Windows Phone 7 and several other projects that he has worked on over the last year and a half. Enabling USB host functionality will allow your device to recognize USB devices that you would normally use on your computer such as mice, external keyboards, and most importantly, memory (thumb . . .

HD2 Finally Gets AGPS Support on Gingerbread

a-gps-944

The best part about ports in our wonderful devices comes about when stuff becomes functional. At this point, you can normally start considering the port to be a “daily” as you can use most things that you are used to from either more stable (but older) roms, or even from stock. It is very hard to argue with this, but the HD2 is the device that, by far, has undergone the most face lifts when it comes to trying to find a new OS that suits it. Most of these ports are currently either fully functional or in the correct path for getting there. Android’s latest “released” incarnation also known as Gingerbread is an almost fully functional port on this device with only a few things missing, one o. . . READ ON »
