Download NexusHD2 Android 4.2 Jelly Bean ROM for HTC HD2

Android is the most active OS on HTC HD2 right now. Yes, developers are still cooking ROM for 4 years old HTC HD2. So all the HTC HD2 users can enjoy the latest and greatest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean on HTC HD2. NexusHD2 is one of my favourite ROM on HTC HD2 which cooked by XDA Developer, tytung. NexusHD2 JellyBean CM10.1 ROM is the latest one. It is based on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean (JDQ39) ~ CyanogenMod 10.1 and using htcleo-2.6.32 kernel. It includes CM10.1 features like Enhanced Power Menu with Reboot and Screenshot options, Power Notification Widget, Trebuchet Launcher, T9 Dialer, Keep app back button in Developer options and Theme. All Google Apps are included like Google Now. Rooted, Superuser, su and busybox are added too. It also supports hardware acceleration like hardware video decoding (720p video playback). And more other goodies…

NexusHD2 JellyBean CM10.1 ROM for HTC HD2

There are 3 types of installations. NAND and NAND with DataOnEXT are no stranger to me. However, the new NativeSD (everything on the SD card) is. And it should be better if your SD card read and write speed are faster than internal NAND storage. Do try it to find out.

    Dear Jayce,

    I am new to android and i just need your support ,Yesterday i have installed NexusHD2 Android 4.2 Jelly Bean ROM in my HTC HD2,and my signal bar shows only one point and i have checked with the ROM chef he has advised me to change the system\ build.prob,but how to access the file in root.Could you guide me.

    Thanks in Advance


    • Hi Takshan, use ES File Explorer. Enable root access in the settings. Then find the build.prob to edit.

      • Takshan

        Thanks Jayce …It works good ,But when i am trying to install apps from google market its getting installed in internal memory and i am getting internal memory full ,is there any way to install directly to SD card


        • Hi Takshan, try Link2SD.

          • Takshan

            Thanks Jayce ,ill work on it and let u know the status

  • Isaac

    Hi Jayce,

    Can I ask something? Now, I’m using NexusHD2 ICS V2.4 and planning to upgrade to NexusHD2 JellyBean V2.0. The forum said fresh install are recommended!. How to do a fresh install?

    Hope I can get answer from this. Thanks πŸ™‚

    • Hi Isaac, it means that you need to factory reset (delete every data) in recovery first. Then install new Android ROM.

      Note – you might need to install new CWM layout size.

      • Isaac

        Okay Thanks Jayce,

        But how about wipe cache partition? Should I do that? and I have read from the forum it said that,” The minimal partition table required when installing this ROM’s system to NAND (Options 1 and 2):(If you do a Full Install, you need 285 MB system partition instead of 200 MB.) ” Means I have to download 400MB Partition and change into this one:

        misc ya 1M
        recovery rrecov|ro|nospr filesize recovery-raw.img
        boot yboot|ro 5M
        system ya 285M
        cache ya 2M
        userdata ya|asize|hr allsize

        Is it true?

        • Factory reset will wipe cache partition too. No harm to do it again if you want.
          Yes, you need to create custom 285M CWM layout size.

          • Isaac

            Thank you very much Jayce πŸ™‚

            You have helped me a lot…Now I’m very confident to upgrade new ROM.

  • Asad

    Hello, I preiviously install android by this way

    Install Instructions:
    After installing HSPL and upgrading your radio version (see Requirements). Copy the Android folder to your SD card . (should look like this: storage card/Android).
    Option 1 (recommended): Install this Android Launcher on WM, set it to “Auto start” and to “3 seconds”, and soft reset to start Android

    Can i install Android 4.2 Jelly Bean this way ?

  • Anup Lama

    hey Jayce,
    i am trying to install the following in my hd2, i have used CWM based recovery
    i have using the nand on ext4, all gets installed but restarts again and again and doesnt load the OS, Please help, m i doing something wrong. tried the other way too but the mobile only restarts.
    [May 27, 2013][ROM][AOKP][4.2.2][720p] TouchWizMOD v3.0 [DataOnExt][NativeSD]

    • Hi Anup, I am not too sure about this ROM. You should get better answer from ROM chef himself.
      But as for NAND on EXT4 build, you should have EXT4 partition on your SD card. And have the correct CWM layout size. Do you have both of that installed correctly?

  • Lakshman

    I now use NexusHD2 ICS V2.8 with very good performance with the NAND installation. And I would like to upgrade to NexusHD2-JellyBean-CM10.1 V2.5. I have T-Mobile HTC HD2. My question is will the JB NAND installation work as fast as ICS NAND installation that I currently have?

    • Hi Lakshman, please make CWM backup first. Then try the new Android ROM to compare.

  • Muhammad Saad

    Hey Jayce,

    I installed this rom with partition and everythin but in booting after htc screen it shows just black screen for a long time I waited! Can u help me plz?

  • Michael

    Hi Jayce, my HD2 previously using NexusHD2-ICS-CM9-HWA_V2.7

    I wiped out my SD, made EXT3 following your tutorial and transferred this NexusHD2 Android 4.2 Jelly Bean ROM

    Went through the installation, couldn’t boot up, stayed at blank screen. Tried to shut it down but not responding, so I removed the battery.

    After the above, I can no longer turn on the HD2. It will power on when I plug in the USB, but I can’t get into Option 8. AD Recovery, it restarts. Before that it says kernel failed when boot up again, and stays at MAGLDR page.

    I did USB Flasher, all sizes including custom 285 the phone remains the same condition. It shuts down if I unplug the USB cable, and I still can’t power it up by pressing the power button.

    • Hi Michael, is your battery okay?

      • Michael

        Yes, the battery was almost fully charged before I performed the said tasks.

        • Michael, you can try to restore to stock Windows Mobile. Then try to install Android again.

  • Michael

    Jayce, my mistake; the phone turned on with the battery in place. tried to remove and replace the battery and cleaned the connectors.

    However, tried all the cwm layout sizes as mentioned in Isaac’s comment above to no avail, screen is turned on but blank after installation.

    Ultimately I use the 285 version, but during installation I chose Custom packages, unchecked a few and voilΓ , loads into the rom startup screen and is working now.

    Appreciate your prompt support.
