Download & Install Android 4.2 Jelly Bean CyanogenMod 10.1 ROM for HTC HD2

Long live HTC HD2. Yeah, the most development friendly smartphone on earth just won’t die. ROM chefs are still working hard to get the latest and greatest Android on HTC HD2. So you can enjoy Android 4.2 Jelly Bean CyanogenMod 10.1 ROM on HTC HD2. It is still in alpha stage (do expect bugs, not working features and slowness). But you can give it a try if you want…

Android 4.2 Jelly Bean CyanogenMod 10.1 ROM for HTC HD2

As usual, I did not try this Android 4.2 Jelly Bean CyanogenMod 10.1 ROM for HTC HD2 myself. HTC HD2 is long gone from me. But it is working great on my brother-in-law’s hands. Not running Jelly Bean of course but the stable Ice Cream Sandwich.

    • Hi sayem, do you still have root access in the latest Android ROM?

  • Barzani

    Hi Jayce!

    • Hi Barzani, please consult ROM chef on this issue.

  • Barzani

    Hi Jayce!
    First happy new year to you and thanks for your reply
    Second i have re installed it using native SD way and every thing looks perfect
    Can you tell me what the difference between NAND with DataOnEXT installation and NativeSD Installation and which one has fast performance

    • Happy new year, Barzani.
      NAND with DataOnEXT is faster as system is stored at internal NAND memory.

  • Barzani

    Can please make a video about how to install NexusHD2-JellyBean-4.1.2-CM10 V1.3a using NAND with DataOnEXT i tried so many times but it’s not working i’ll be very thankful if you will do

  • Barzani

    1-Services>Boot sitting>AD SD Direction>EXT
    2-AD SD Boot>install zip from SD card>Choose rom>i’ll choose NAND with DataOnEXT in the installation>after it’s finish i’ll reboot>hold shutdown >
    3-Services>boot sitting>AD SD Direction>(should i choose this???)NATIVE SD >(Should i choose this???) Boot AD SD

  • Barzani

    in which section should be NAND here or here
    3-Services>boot sitting>AD SD Direction>(should i choose this???)NATIVE SD >(Should i choose this???) Boot AD SD

  • Barzani

    I really appreciate your replay
    That’s mean it should install it like Native SD however at the last step i’ll Choose Boot and NAND instead of Boot AD SD right??

    • No idea about Native SD.

  • Sim

    Hi Jayce,
    do you have any idea to disable the navigation bar which locate at the bottom of the screen.

    i tried the ICS 4.0.4, it having some issue with Papago M9 due to the resolution.
    default is 480×800, but after the navigation bar then the resolution become 480×758.

    pls advise, thanks in advance.

    • Hi Sim, you need to find a way to remove that soft buttons on that ROM. Else try other ROM.

  • James Martin

    Dude, i am a huge fan of yours. To be honest, you’ve made me alot of money in the past from all of your information and mods for the best phone in the world….the hd2.!!

    I just wanted to share this piece of info with everyone. After i installed this mod, i was worried about 2 things ..the sd card if it was removed.., and if the program would stay if i switched the sd card for another. I tried it and it booted up without the orig i installed with , i even put a diffrent 16gb card to keep my music and pics.. it works great and actualy,,it runs faster without the orig in there.

    please email me with the newist stuff for hd2. I try everyone of them and i actualy like this one. its almost a perfect match to my tmobile springboard.. laterz!!

  • Daniel Essien

    Hi Jayce., I have an HTC HD2 phone running on cm10. My problem is the network(radio) is always grey instead of the blue. Pls help me to correct this problem. Thanks in advance.

    • Hi Daniel, I have no idea on this grey and blue. Can you explain what does they mean?

      • Daniel Essien

        The network signal on my phone is grey instead of blue signal. Because of the grey signal background apps like messenger like facebook, whatsapp don’t work. Pls help.

        • Sorry Daniel, I still have no info. Do you mean that 3G data connection not working at all?

          • Daniel Essien

            Talking about the 3G symbol and the four signal strength bars on the status bar at top, mine is always grey instead of blue. What can I do to change it to blue. Pls help.

            • Please consult CM10 developers in this case.
