HD2Sense3

Without a doubt, the HTC HD2 is one of HTC’s greatest devices of all time. The shape factor, screen size, and raw power and capabilities are unmatched by most phones that came around when this was released, and even now. Not too long ago, XDA member mccmjoon76 successfully started porting a Sense 3.0 rom from the Desire HD. Almost  two months after the initial release, the rom is currently almost a daily driver, as praised by many members and people who use this rom. However, the road towards perfection becomes easier when you have company and people that help. As it turns out, XDA member BoxmaX released a patch that fixed the camera issues that seem to bug most Sense 3.0 roms. Not only is the camera fixed but it also allows the device to record video in 720p resolution, which makes the rom even more appealing for those of you who are dying for some cool weather animations and 3D effects.

Needless to say, the rom is still not perfect and you will likely find bugs. If you do find issues or if you have suggestions, please leave some feedback for the dev to review.

Changelog:
Good for Daily used yeh ^ ^

Hello XDA Users / HD2 Owners,
This is an All in One Toolkit for HTC HD2 NAND Users. The main purpose of this toolkit is to simplify many complex tools/guides which are difficult or unsafe to use. As we all know that HD2 has got a powerful hardware base, but the pre-packed Windows Mobile operating system just ruins all the fun of having a device with high specs. So, developers on XDA like codesmith and Cotulla have created alternative bootloaders which can load Android kernels so that we can use Google’s Android operating system on our devices. This tool will help you install those bootloaders, and also do many other customization/modding works easily from one control panel. Here are the main features of the Toolkit:

Thanks to all of you that tipped us on this.

Running Linux on mobile phones is something a lot of developers have tried to do and have failed. It’s also something a lot of developers have tried to do and have succeeded, on an array of different devices. If you’re an HTC HD2 owner, then we have some good news for you. Not only do you now have Linux, but you have the ability to boot it within Android. Cool, huh?

XDA member dan1j3l has created an app which he likes to call ToolBox. The app comes packed with a hot bootloader, which allows you to virtually boot Linux within Android. A few users have asked whether it is possible to boot Ubuntu, and it would seem this question is still yet to be answered, but right now the app is seemingly only able to boot a Debian distribution of Linux running the XFCE4 interface.

The developer hopes to bring this app to other phones, like the “Desire and Nexus One”. If this is a development you’d like to see, why not head on over to the original thread, grab yourself the app and show your support!

HTC-HD2-Running-NoDo

You may have heard that NoDo will become public on May 24th, but you can be sure that Microsoft is not thinking about releasing this for your beloved HD2. Now, thanks to XDA member YukiXDA, who saw many members waiting for NoDo, presents the first version of a guide that explains how to get the update by yourself, without relying on others to release something.
The guide is very complete and touches upon topics such as what you need to get started, changing the SYS, OEM packages, building your ROM, and more. Please make sure that you know what are you doing before proceeding because it´s a delicate process, and if you can contribute to this guide in some way, please do so.

Ok guys, I don’t know why DFT haven’t release an update for HD2 earlier since it take only few days to a noob to achieve a working NoDo rom. Their first version was built on a test rom with developer’s certificates from Microsoft and HTC, debug tools, recompiled drivers for HD2 and a method to build SLDR and NK sections. They had before everybody a test version of Mango too. So I suppose they, or only one, is working for HTC or has good contacts and perhaps had a commercial interest or was more interested by the exploit than giving users a great experience of WP7 on HD2, updates as soon as it’s possible and tools/knowledge to members like ervius, AnDim, Nokser etc. to achieve that by themselves. Someone in another post suggest an agreement not to release their mango before the 24th, it’s quite possible. But I don’t know and I don’t blame, it’s life lol

Perhaps we’ll see a version of Mango for HD2 soon (and new exiting videos^^’) but since a lot of people are waiting for NoDo (some desperate posts made me cry XD) I’ll give you a first version, and better, the method to achieve that by yourself for the next coming.

!The trip isn’t how to flash an HD7 rom on HD2 like certain people seems to believe and we don’t need a new malgr for the moment!

Continue to the guide thread.

HD2 Sensation

It seems like it was just yesterday when the dump for the HTC Sensation was posted in our boards (in fact, it was 2 days ago, but who keeps track of these things?) Just yesterday, the first booting port appeared in the Desire HD section. Devs all around XDA are scrambling to get functional ports in each respective section. The next successful port of this Rom is has been accomplished in the HD2 section. XDA member imilka has a working Rom for this great device. Needless to say, there are many non-functional features such as the fact that the camera is broken (go figure). However, unlike the Desire HD, this one seems to have a lot more going for it, like the fact that all radios seem to be functional and EGL graphics, while a bit buggy, are working.
If you have an HD2 and would like to take this for a spin, make sure that you leave some feedback.

  • It boots 
  • Touchscreen
  • EGL acceleration (however, still buggy)
  • Radio ( Calls, SMS )
  • Mobile data
  • Wi-Fi
  • Wi-Fi Tethering (should)
  • GPS (should)
  • Bluetooth
  • Bluetooth A2DP music playback & calls
  • Sound

You can find more information in the port thread.

easter cookie

Whether you have religious motives or not to celebrate Easter, one can only help but to wonder what to do in order to get into the whole spirit, particularly if you have children. Well, if that was the case, your prayers have been heard because XDA member lnando84 has prepared a theme for Sense for Windows Mobile devices equipped with Cookie’s Home Tab 2.0. The theme includes Easter eggs for the different icons, bunnies, and as much candy and chocolate as you can swipe your finger on. There are various items to tinker with along with some very nice backgrounds. All in all, Happy Easter!

Have you tried this on your device yet? Please share some feedback if you have.

My Easter Theme for CHT 2.0 is finally finished enough to share ..better late then never right lol. Mix and match different items to make you’re own unique theme. I hope everyone enjoys it.

home_gesture

Ahh… the HD2. Such a versatile phone, capable of such a wide array of possibilities. If you thought that things for this device couldn’t get any better, you may want to check out what XDA member windroidHD made for us. The dev was tired of using the hardware buttons on the HD2 to go back, home and such, so he decided to create an app to get rid of the need of using them. zMooth allows you to use gestures in order to perform the same functions as these 4 buttons. The app basically becomes a small square in the bottom of the screen. In there, you simply swipe your finger in a certain way, and it will perform the action assigned to that particular hardware button.

If this looks interesting, please head over to the thread and install the app. Please leave any feedback regarding bugs and suggestions.

Just finished publishing zMooth gesture app in android market, it will allow you to use gestures to mimic back, home and menu hardware keys.

I wrote this app to be unobtrusive by using minimum amount of screen space but at the same time be very easy and intuitive to use. If you use for couple of days you will understand how easy it is to use.

touch tools

There are several tweaks and mods for the powerhouse also known as the HTC HD2. However, one of the most popular ones (aside from CHT) is Touch Tools, which just happened to receive a much deserved update. XDA member lyriquidperfection has just released a new set of tools that will allow the user to apply, in a rather simple manner, many tweaks and mods to the Windows Mobile platform, most of which are only accessible via registry. Some of the tools included are Pinch to Zoom Manager, Boot Manager, System Viewer, HotKey Utility, and several others. each one of these will allow you to fully customize any part of the OS that you feel is lacking some of your personal touches, all that without having to touch the registry yourself!

Please try it out and let the dev know if you find any bugs.

Touch Tools for HTC 2.0 Suite is a powerful set of applications that lets you modify different settings on your device that would not otherwise be available to you.

There are currently 9 applications that make up the full Touch Tools 2.0 Suite

Landscape2

If you are a lucky owner of the last Windows Mobile device, the powerful HD2, this will be of your liking. XDA member Laurentius26, who is well know for his ROMs on several devices, has managed to add landscape and auto rotate support for phone canvas. Currently in beta version, the dialer still has some minor bugs to be fixed but it´s fully usable. The developer credits to Ultrashot and Cracing as this was a team work.
Step in and leave your feedback as it´s very important in order to fix the bugs.

Dear friends,
After investigating several phonecanvas for HD2 like Huashan, Oboe, Rhodium, Topaz on wm6.5.x I’ve managed to find that latest phonecanvas is capable to autorotate.

I’ve tried and read about all the fixes that exist for wm6.5.x and managed to patch
phonecanvas so it rotates fine.

Replacing dlls doesn’t always work and I taught lets try to do the patches myself so it matches the current phonecanvas.

SetupMenu

By now, there’s a tiny chance that you might have heard about dual booting between Windows Mobile and Android on the HD2….

XDA forum member Pop45398 certainly has and unfamiliar with other dual booting apps for the HD2, the XDA member decided to create one himself.

RunDroid enables Android to be started on an SD card with a single tap on an icon and should be compatible with versions run with CLRCAD/HARET. The app also features a setup menu, which allows for selecting the default OS, creating Start Up and Start Menu shortcut links and more.

For a lot more information, the rar file and detailed installation instructions, check out the application thread.

HD2

The HD2 is a device that never ceases to amaze us. Its unmatched flexibility and capability of running multiple OS’ (most of them not meant for it) is rather unique to it. However, it seems that what seems to be good can always get better. XDA member dan1j3l is currently working on a way to hot boot the device into a Debian build from within Android. What does this mean? Simple, if you are booting other OS’ from the SD card, you need to get out back into Windows Mobile to boot into whatever Linux distro you wanted to run. What this project allows is to boot into this other OS from within Android by simply tapping an icon (just like opening an app).

The project is currently being worked on but he does not have a thread going just yet (will open it when it is ready to be shared). Instead, the dev has provided us with a Youtube video showing the seamlessness of switching between OS’.

Please leave your comments here if you have any questions or feedback.

SimClock Widget For CHT2

March 21, 2011   By:

SimClock

With the introduction of the Android platform, Windows Mobile seems to be fading away. If you have an HD2 running Android, you probably remember the days of using Cookies Home Tab to spice up your Windows Mobile experience. XDA members NordpolcamperDunc001 have not forgotten the WinMo community and have continued the development of CHT Widgets, bringing users SimClock.

With SimClock, you can choose to resize the background of the widget, extending it up to the entire height of your screen, but without changing the size of the clock. This will allow you to really personalize the look of your home screen. That however, is not the “really cool stuff.” When pressing the time or date on your widget, a QuickPanel will open up letting you choose an action out of five options:
  • Alarm
  • World Clock
  • Calendar Tab
  • Tasks
  • Contacts

Choosing one of the actions listed will bring you to the corresponding tab. Through this menu and by following the instructions in the OP, you can even change the color of all components in your widget.

If you are still running Windows Mobile CHT2, this widget is a must to add a personal touch to your phone. Visit the original thread for more details.
