Device mods for most XDA members involves flashing a custom ROM to improve performance and customize the look of the device UI. However, XDA member whitesites has taken the custom look to another level.
Whitesites has capitalized on the fact that the HTC HD2′s battery cover is made of aluminum and coated in black paint. Noting the slightly etched texture, Whitesites has modified the external appearance of his HTC HD2, by ‘polishing’ the battery cover to give a mirrored chromed look finish to his Windows Mobile device.
To help us do it ourselves, Whitesites has written a great tutorial with photos specifying the tools you will require, which you can follow step by step. Everything from explaining how to sand off the paint, to using a metal polish in order to give your HD2 the chromed look.
