Download & Install DFT UltraFruit Windows Phone 7.5 Mango 7740 ROM for HTC HD2

Yes, one of the famous developer from Dark Forces Team DFT, Cotulla who make all the custom ROM like Windows Mobile, Android and Windows Phone possible on HTC HD2 has a new gift for WP7 users. DFT UltraFruit Windows Phone 7.5 Mango 7740 for HTC HD2 is the latest present from DFT. Thanks to them. It is not the latest WP7 8107 but 7740 should be good enough for HTC HD2. What are the new features in DFT UltraFruit WP7.5 Mango 7740 for HTC HD2? There are a lot but here are some interested me ~ heavy improved camera quality, new touch screen driver, improved sound quality…

DFT UltraFruit Windows Phone 7.5 Mango 7740 for HTC HD2

Err… Microsoft still does not impress me to use Windows Phone 7 on HTC HD2. So I did not test DFT UltraFruit on my HTC HD2 as well. Sorry, no impression from me. Android and iOS are getting stronger and even better. Lot of quality applications and games to choose. WP7 needs to catch up a lot in software. And in hardware too as most of the WP7 hardware is 1 generation behind. Hopefully, Windows Phone 8 will be a better OS to fight against Android and iOS.

DFT UltraFruit installation is the same as previous WP7 ROM. You need to have SPL-2.08.HSPL, Radio 2.15 and DFT MAGLDR Bootloader v1.13. Just refer to my Windows Phone 7 7004 installation guide. By the way, do leave feedback and report any issue of the ROM to DFT at XDA. They will use it to do future development / improvements. Thanks.

    Thank you Jayce,for all!!

  • chanelle

    Already installed rom, just writing to say, i love your tutorials! very easy to follow, you helped me a lot when i would get stuck doing my dualboot. Thanks!:)

  • Hi Jayce, I installed DFT UltraFruit and it works greate but I cant open Office and Maps, any idea? is this image corrupted or from where i can download fully unlocked image of Windows 7.5. Thank you in advance.

    • Sorry, I have no idea as I did not try this ROM. Please consult others at XDA website. Thanks.

      • I think the problem i cant open Office and map because my phone have 0 free space, could you please help me as how can i use my SD card in DFT UltraFruit to extend its storage?

        • Did you insert SD card during WP7 installation?

  • Shahbaz

    Thanks for the instructions!!
    i am able to install DFT UltraFruit successfully but not able to login using my live id.
    because of that i can not download any app from the market place.
    any idea?
    thanks in advance.

    • Did you have the activation code from Microsoft?

      • Shahbaz

        i got it working finally.
        i had to call Microsoft and got the activation code.
        everything works and syncs very smoothly. Very nice interface.
        Only problem with WP7 is lack of apps and games in the MarketPlace compared to Android and Apple. AngryBirds $2.99 cmon!!
        Thanks again Jayce for providing step by step instructions!!

    Hi Jayce,
    I Install WM 7.5 on my Htc HD 2… Now I want to uninstall it. I want to try ICS 4.0.4.
    So can you please tell me How to Uninstall WM 7.5 From my HD2..?

    • Hi Karan, just follow the guide and install Android ROM. It will replace WP7.

      • Karan

        Hi Sir, Thanks for your quick reply.

        Sir I tried that way, but its not working. When I select 8. Ad Recovery it says that “No Boot Sources”..I think may be its because of I format the Memory Card that I used in first time installaion of WM 7.5.

        Everytime I tried to do CustomRu thing and I connect it with my USB cabel it says Error 260. (Connection Error)

        I also tried to install WM 7.5 again. By doing 10. Service > Flashing…. I saw Waiting USB….USB on my HD 2. On my PC it says Waiting for USB connection and after some time it gives error (It’s 1198 error)

        So, Can you Please tell me Now what should I do next…?

        • Did you install CWM?

          • Karan

            Yes Sir, I tried that…
            And at the end it give me an Error (Error 736)

            • Hi Karan, do you have Windows Mobile Device Center installed on Windows Vista / Windows 7 or ActiveSync installed on Windows XP?

  • Daniel

    I tried downloading the DFT UltraFruit Windows Phone 7.5 Mango 7740 ROM for HTC HD2 and it sends me to a different ad every time, i have tried going everywhere but no luck. Any ideas?
