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!
