Windows 7.8 for the HTC HD7!

microsoft-logo_2318464c

While Android is the dominant operating system on XDA at the moment, things are finally starting to heat up for Windows Phone users. Even though Microsoft has stated that existing WP7 devices will not be fully upgraded to Windows Phone 8, development has continued to move forward. In particular, the latest iteration of Windows Phone, version 7.8, has now been made available for the HTC HD7, thanks to XDA Recognized Developer dotcompt.

The ROM is still in beta form and only a few modifications have been made. It is also not fully unlocked, meaning that homebrew applications won’t work. However, those wishing to get a taste of the latest Windows Phone greatness that Microsoft has to offer can still give thi. . . READ ON »

Deepshining ROM For HTC HD7 Updated With 8107 Build And Custom Marketplace

deepshining hd7 wp7

There aren’t many custom ROMs for Windows Phone 7 devices because, let’s face it, there simply isn’t the same kind of need as there was on Windows Mobile (or still is on Android). But nonetheless, with some Windows Phones getting unlocked and everything, custom ROMs have emerged for them, and one of the most popular ones is Deepshining for the HTC HD7.

The Deepshining ROM by recognized developer dotcompt has recently been updated to the 8107 build, which fixes some bugs such as the disappearing keyboard. Besides that, some useful tweaks like the SMSBackup utility have been added.

The biggest news here, however, is the Deepshining Marketplace, which allows you to install and update homebr. . . READ ON »

Have You Recently Updated Your HTC WP7 Device To 7740? If So, Check This Out…

ethernet_mac_address (1)

By this time, you are probably aware that my picture manipulation skills are less than par, but if you take a quick look at the image on this article, right below the MAC address, I placed a small refresh icon. Weird as it may seem, I do have a valid reason for having done this to a network adapter. However, I am getting a bit ahead of myself, so let me take a quick step back. A few days ago, HTC and Microsoft started pushing out build 7740 to their WP7 line of devices (Schubert, Mozart, etc) in order to bring their builds up directly to Mango, which happens to be a really good improvement from the NoDo release. Well, as most releases from Microsoft, this one is not without its bugs. Shortly after the update a few users started no. . . READ ON »

HTC Shipped Mango ROMs For A Bunch Of Devices

Windows-Phone-7-Mango-2-468x261

Here are some interesting news for Windows Phone 7 owners. XDA member Football has informed us that the final RTM Mango shipped ROM´s has been leaked for the following HTC devices:

  • Mozart
  • HD7
  • HTC 7 Trophy
  • Verizon Trophy
  • HTC 7 Pro

It´s getting hard for HTC to keep a close eye on their ROMs with the Mango update rolling on closer.
You have to be careful, as any devices with HSPL installed will be bricked if the ROM is installed. In the words of two experienced members You must NOT run RSPL / HSPL wizards if you have SPL 4.XX. If you flashed ANY of this roms, you MUST go back to OLDER version BEFORE running RSPL / HSPL. and 1:want flash rom need had RSPL/HSPL and delete SPL_signed.nbh 2:after flash rom CAN NOT flash RSPL/H. . .

Android Spotted Running on a HD7

hd7 android

As much as we hate to admit it, we have been dupped before with stories that are too good to be true (Motorola RSA keys cracked anyone?). However, the good people from xda.cn have provided us with a few real surprises in the past. This time, they share a video of  a HD7 running a Sense (what seems to be Froyo) rom. The video has made its way around the globe with tons of speculations about its veracity and whether the HD7 is the next HD2 (kind of an obvious statement). The video looks fairly real but a few are weary as it doesn’t show a bootloader or anything of that sort, or the fact that the buttons that the person shooting the video is using seem to have variable (read weird) functionality. So, how does it start? From N. . . READ ON »

How To Upgrade Your HTC HD7 Memory To 32 GB

db_tutohd717

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.

The battery and bottom cover of your device will need to be removed in order to gain access to the microSD card reader. Some careful use of the tweezers and you should be able to replace the microSD with the new 32GB.

Finally, a hard reset is ne. . . READ ON »

Custom Roms for Windows Phone 7

Windows-Phone-7-Logo

Most people thought that when Windows Phone 7 came out it would be tough to get custom ROM’s for it. On the contrary,  XDA member ansar.ath.gr has developed the first Windows Phone 7 ROM’s for the HTC HD7. The installation is pretty straightforward and doesn’t look to hard for a user to follow if they have flashed RUU’s before. Here is a quote from the OP:

Dear forum members,

I successfully created and flashed the following two (2) WP7 ROM nbh images for the HD 7 device branded as Htc Europe.
The first using the imgfs.bin from the Mondrian ROM, not sure of what branded device that can be downloaded from here:

the second using the imgfs.bin from the

WP7 First Forums Added – HD7, Focus, and Mozart

Windows-Phone-7-Series-People-hub

Shortly after the unveiling of WP7 in Europe, XDA has started taking steps towards the next generation of Windows Mobile devices. We have had a place for WP7 development and chat for a while now, but since we now know of a few devices that will be hitting the market soon, we decided to give them places for centralized development for each one individually. The three devices (HTC Mozart, HTC HD7, and Samsung Focus) already have some discussions around them regarding possible specs, pictures, and more. The most advanced one in terms of devs having stuff to work on is the Mozart, which has a couple of shipped roms, effectively giving devs the possibility to look at the final product (maybe not exactly final, but rather . . .
