Download CustomRUU for HTC HD2

In order to have Android 2.2 Froyo on HTC HD2, we need to flash to newer radio ROM like Leo_RADIO_2.12.50.02_2 that I am using right now. Custom Windows Mobile ROM requires latest radio ROM in order to work too. Same apply to custom Android 2.2 Froyo ROM. CustomRUU for HTC HD2 is the tool that uses to flash the radio ROM. It will perform ‘task 32’ instead of a ‘task 28’ after flashing an .nbh. And it will not format device if just flash a radio or a splash screen.

    Dear Jaycee,

    I have a small issue with the Wifi on my HTC HD2. It connects to the Wifi (both at office and home) but when i try to browse or use any application like weather it dosent work… an error message comes up.

    I have flashed Customer ROM, same as yours, and have installed Android.. working quite well. Wifi works fine in adoroid, no problems !

    any ideas, how it can be solved?

    Thanks in advance,


    • Do you mean that you have Wi-Fi issue on Windows Mobile? No problem on Android.

  • David

    I am stuck at USB Flasher mode
    Wait USB….USB

    I think I missed the radio_rom step. I have the hspl installed and can’t do anything with my phone. I have even tried to work through the SD card with no success.

    • David

      Got that figured out, now I am stuck at go, go, go

      • David

        All figured out. No help needed.

        • tafa

    Hey Jayce
    Thanks for the posts. I am using a HD2 with win 6.5. I want to have a dual boot between win65 and Android. can you guide me on the procedure for the same? will your process enable me to dual boot?

  • Marc

    Hey Jayce, I followed steps from the xda page as to install android on my hd2.

    1.Connect your phone via USB to the PC and wait for any drivers to install.

    2.Task29: Navigate to the Task29 folder and right-click on task29.exe and “Run as administrator”. Your phone will reboot to the initial flash screen. You will have to reset to Bootloader.

    3.Wait for your PC to update the drivers again.

    4.MAGLDR: Navigate to the MAGDLR folder and right-click on ROMUpdateUtility.exe and “Run as administrator”. Your phone will reboot to a new boot screen.

    5.Wait for your PC to update the drivers again.

    6.You should be booted to the new MAGLDR screen and see a series of options. Use your volume rocker to highlight “USB Flash” and press the green call button to select it.

    7.Wait for your PC to update the drivers again.

    8.ROM: Navigate to your new ROM folder and right-click DAF.exe and “Run as administrator”.

    I am at step 6 and hit a snag. When I hit usb flasher nothing happens. I’m hoping I just need to plug my sd card into a card reader and put the rom on it but I am super new to this and would appreciate any advice you could offer me!

    thank u veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrryyyyyyyyy much i really appreciate wat u have done for me all though i did physically myself lol but thanks alot for teaching me


    Hi Jayce,
    I’ve been running Android desire nand rom on my hd2 .I had issues with lost signal or no signal at all.
    I’ve been flashing diffrent radios to see witch one works the best but today i tried flashing 2-07-51 radio and when the process was finished my phone just turned off completely and now i can’t getit to start again..not even in bootloader mode..What can i do to turn it back on..I made sure the battery was at 80% when i tried to flash the radio so it’s not a dead bat issue..

    • FYI, radio ROM is not for T-Mobile HD2. It is for HTC HD2 with 512MB ROM only. Which one do you own?

      • MICKEY

        I have the USA version and i guess the radio rom that i used was for the HTC HD2.
        Idownloaded the readio rom from XDA and these were suppose to be radios for hd2..They never mentioned that there were dif radios for the 2 versions of HD2.
        Is there anyway for me to fix this problem?

        Thanks Jayce

        • Sorry, you can’t do much if you cannot load bootloader. Try to contact T-Mobile see.

    i’m having trouble finding Rom version 1.66.707 anywhere. I currently am running 3.14 and unable to upgrade the software to Win 7 or Mango.

    • So what do you want?

      • Vikas Palan

        I need a link from where i can download ROM 1.66.707. I’ve tried the HTC sites, has only the latest version, i.e. 3.14 which won’t let me proceed with installing HSPL3 after which i want to try installing Windows 7 or 7.5

          • Vikas Palan

            that worked like a charm! Now that i’ve past the “we’ve hacked it”, i followed these steps.

            When i press “S”, comes up with an error “error: no devices were found”
            The Phone is connected via USB onto the computer.

            any ideas? the OS Version on the phone is 5.2.21913, do i have to upgrade to Win 7 or any other version before i move to Mango?

            Thanks in advance
