How to install Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on HTC HD2? Yes, I am sure that you will ask this question if you have HTC HD2 with older Android version like 2.3 Gingerbread. Basically, the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich installation on HTC HD2 is the same as previous version which use ClockworkMod Recovery CWM method. For experience ROM flasher, you can skip this tutorial. Download Android 4.0 ICS ROM and install it now. As for new comer, please stay with me by following below step by step guide to install Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on HTC HD2.

Prerequisites

  • SPL-2.08.HSPL
  • Radio that support 576 MB RAM
  • DFT MAGLDR Bootloader v1.13
  • ClockworkMod Recovery v1.3

Do take your time to study these guides. Then install them one by one. You need all these components in order to use Android 4.0 ICS NAND Android.

Note – You need to use 220MB ClockworkMod Recovery partition layout for this NexusHD2 Beta10 ROM. Do refer to ROM chef for the correct CWM layout size if you install other ICS ROM.

Step by Step Guide

  1. First of all, copy the Android 4.0 ICS ROM zip file that you want to install into SD card (use SD card reader or MassStg in MAGLDR).
  2. Power on your phone and don’t let go power button.
  3. DFT MAGLDR Bootloader will be loaded.
  4. Use volume down button to go down to 8. AD Recovery.
  5. Then press call button.
  6. ClockworkMod Recovery will be loaded then.
  7. Select wipe data/factory reset. (You can skip this step if upgrade from same ROM)
  8. Then select Yes — delete all user data.
  9. Select wipe cache partition. (You can skip this step if upgrade from same ROM)
  10. Then select Yes — Wipe Cache.
  11. Go to install zip from sdcard.
  12. Then select choose zip from sdcard.
  13. Select your zip file (NexusHD2-IceCreamSandwich_Beta1.zip in my video).
  14. Select Yes – Install your zip file.
  15. Press power button to go back.
  16. Then reboot your phone.
  17. Android 4.0 ICS OS will be loaded then.
  18. That’s all.

I was using NexusHD2 Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Beta1 ROM for HTC HD2 in the video tutorial. It is a port from Nexus One’s AOSP ICS ROM. Thanks XDA Developer, tytung for the ROM. Not all functions are working due to it is still in beta stage. No worry, latest version should be better with all working functions. Do check out XDA website for latest Android 4.0 ICS ROM for HTC HD2.

    Finally some good news after all those games……
    Someone tested this already?
    Which languages does it support?
    Any bugs??

    Grtz. from tha lowlands.

    • cristian

      I tested it and works good but the camera and music app are not functioning properly

      • DutchMan

        I’ve also tested and it worked well. only if you have used the camera he jams and falter.
        I recommend it especially to use as replacement for Windows 6.5, first time I’ve wondered if he could, and in Dutch but it is possible.

        Grtz. DutchMan

  • cristian

    That i have tried.

  • Jammie

    How about battery life & MMS function?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      • DonKabbara

        Hello jayce i want to install this on my HD2 but i have dual boot WM 7.5 mango and Android 2.3.5 nexus gingerbread. what should i do to install this? should i move it to my SD card and install and CMW remove the partition byt itsel or should i format my SD card and install a Stock HD2 rom then install this Android rom?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          You need to get ICS ROM in SD card version. Above one is NAND version.

          • DonKabbara

            u have given before a tutorial on how to go back from wm 7.5 mango to Android rom . can u paste the link plz? and where can i find the tutrial for the SD Version? and whats the difference between NAND and SD? i know that SD version u use MAgldr and u install it from SD.but with NAND u use CMW and u install it from PC?

          • DonKabbara

            Hello jayce i installed this nand version evrything is working great but camera isnt working and thers problem in lockscreen it keeps freezing many times,then i can unlock screen. How can im fix this problem?

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              It is still beta version. Please wait for stable version…

              • DonKabbara

                How can i maximize or make my internal storage bigger? Cuz in my phone its 175 mb in my friends it 152 mb its very low regarding if i install many apps can u help. Me with that?

                • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                  Use a smaller CWM layout size.

                  • DonKabbara

                    Instead of 250 MB i use 150 mb? Or when im partitionng my sd card with CMW i used 512 i use less?

                    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                      Use the exact size that ROM chef recommended.

                    • rama

      • elliott

        hey jayce i got a important question my friend has a china version hd2 windows mobile and he want to flash any rom from xda developers on it is this possible can this be done being that it has a mtk 6573 chipset in it

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          I don’t think so because China HD2 should be a clone. Not official one.

      • elliott

    I have installed the beta2 ROM as per the above guide line but after reboot the screen stuck at HTC black screen.

    Thanks

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      How much CWM partition size did you use?

      • Arsh

        That I dont know and how but i was using the typoon CM7 _3.6.8magdlr (2.3.7 gingerbred) and CWR 3.0.0.5 before
        THanks

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          You need at least 200MB CWM partition layout. I used 250MB. Just install CWM again then Android ROM.

          • Omar

            Hi,

            Please Help.

            Regards
            Omar

          • Omar

            Just want to add that i installed the Alpha, and it did boot with no problem bu when i install the beta10 it will be stuked on HTC logo ..

            Please Help

            Regards
            Omar

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              Use 190MB CWM layout for beta10.

          • DonKabbara

            helo , i use 250 MB CMW version and i use CMW to partition SD card which size is the best? my internal storage is only 150 MB i cant install to many apps:S

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              Use 220MB CWM. It will give you another 30MB of user disk space.

  • Arsh

    Thanks Jayce!

    Finally have i have the Beta version of ICS hope that all other features will soon fixed by the developers.

  • iiivan

    keeps freezing on the boot screen than reboots and starts from the beginning

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      How much CWM partition size did you install?

      • iiivan

        250 when i installed HSPL4 it newer displayed “we hacked it” on HD2 all i got on PC just this message – “Install succesfull clik OK”

        if this would help i had MIUI on it before and before that WP7

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Why you want to install HSPL4 again since you have it already?
          Can you still load CWM now?

          • iiivan

            yes i still can load CWM…

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              Good. Wipe data and cache. Then install the ROM again.

              • iiivan

                it freezes on the boot screen

                • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                  Are you sure that you are using 250MB CWM partition layout? Others don’t have issue…

                  • MoAv

                    I too have issues freezing at the HTC logo, I have 250MB but not sure about the 576 radio, how do I check ?

                    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                      Can’t check unless you are on Windows Mobile. But as long as you can load MAGLDR, you are using radio that support 576 MB RAM.

  • syed

    Hi Jayce,
    I have installed Beta 1 but theh camera is not working and also cannot connect to the mobile data plan.

      • DonKabbara

        Do u know when the pfficial version will be released?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          There is no official ICS ROM for HTC HD2.

  • Raylot

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Just install it like beta1.

      • Raylot

        • syed

          raylot – i did the same i installed beta 1 first then installed beta2 over 1 with the same procedure.

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          No need.

          • Raylot

            Thank you, it works! can’t wait until all the bugs get fixed though…

            • trigga

              pls how do u know when bugs have been fixed and where do u download it from??

  • Steven

    Hey, I have followed the whole process. However,after the last reboot, the process does not go beyond the graphical illusion. The graphics keep playing forever. What might I have done wrong?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      How much CWM partition layout size did you install?

      • Steven

        I installed 400Mb but also tried 150Mb

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Try 250MB. Use 200MB if you know how to edit CWM layout size.

          • Steven

            ok, lemme try that one. So do i have to start afresh or just replace what i have with 250Mb?

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              Just do it like 150MB and 400MB.

              • Steven

                How long should the graphical illusions take before you get to set up for the new OS?

                • michiel

                    Collored flakes? Do you mean stuck during boot up? If so, how much CWM layout size did you install?

                    • michiel

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      It is still beta version. Not everything is working. You can install Android 2.3.7 stable version if you want.

      • robin

        thanks Jayce.. appreciate it..

      • robin

        Hi again Jayce, i want you to ask another question.. i installed android 2.3.7 and working good but i forgot to get my backup file as a .csv file that I have just a back up that is an .exe file (Backup_20100611.exe) which includes my all contact numbers on previous windows mobile 6.5 version.

        And is there any ways to see my contacts in this file or to convert it to csv file or any files I will be able to use it on my new android system..?

        thanks so much in advance.. i’ll be waiting for your reply..

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Sorry, I have no idea what program create Backup_20100611.exe.

    I am unable to use my 16 GB micro sdhc card.
    I am unable to use camera, gallery.
    Please help me. I install BETA 3 version and I did 250 CMW Partition.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      I did not try beta3 yet. Please consult ROM chef at XDA on your issues.

  • raymond cheung

    Hi, Jayce, okay, will try. However, found that your link of downloading of ICE CREAM SANDWICH is linked to ICS_V1.1.mag.zip, use this ICS_V1.1.MAG.ZIP is better on beta2 file ?
    Pls advise.
    Appreciated.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Both of them were outdated and replaced by latest version. Please get the latest one from XDA website.

  • raymond cheung

    Hi, Jayce, one more thing would like to check, currently i am having ROM manager, which has a function is “TO INSTALL ROM FROM SD CARD” can i use this function?

    Hey, Anyone has problem with Camera in beta 3.???

  • danny

  • girimaker

    Hi Jayce,
    Thanks for the newest version ROM for HD2 (NexusHD2-IceCreamSandwich_Beta3.zip)! I installed according to your manual above. Before I was running Gingerbread 2.3.7 (Nand) on my HD2.
    But after installing this new rom HD2 refuses to start! Each time it starts it shows HTC logo, loads amagldr 1.3, background goes blue for about 0.2 second and loads the green HTC logo and goes off! Then it starts up again, and repeats the whole process!

    Any idea?
    Thanks,

    Maker

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Try to use 200MB CWM system partition.

      • girimaker

        Thank you so much! Pity, I could not see that problem beforehand.
        Great, it is working now!

        I was also able to install Sygic Aura and Copilot 8.2!

  • girimaker

    I replaced ICS with Gingerbread again, but without any problem!!

    Thanks again,

  • Pradeep

    I have successfully installed ICS4 on my HTC HD2. However, I can’t connect to WIFI because it is not showing available accounts. I tried to add it manually, but saying active accounts not available. I followed each steps correctly . please help.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Hmm…. I can connect to my Wi-Fi router. Not sure what is wrong with yours.

  • Zsolt

    Hi Jayce,

    I have installed on my HD2 (from WM) the latest Android ICS based on your description
    (which is by the way very good. Detailed, Easy, Understandable)

    Unfortunately the camera does not work.
    What could be the problem? Is there a fix for it?

    Thank you
    Zsolt

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      It is still beta version. Not everything is working. Eg, camera still fail to work.

  • ahmed

    Can I apply this method on my sony ericsson xperia arc? If not is there another method to install android 4.0 ics on xperia arc

  • raymond cheung

    Hi Jayce, i followed your video instruction 100%, even wipe out cache and personal data using CMW before installation of the ics bet5 version.
    the ics running okay, except the known problem on the camera. BUT found that the internal storage only total 150MB and now used 109MB, left only 42MB free.
    Can you please guide me how to expend the original 150MB to higher? as this HD2 should have total 448MB RAM with 512MB ROM.
    thank you.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Use 200MB CWM partition layout.

      We can’t use all 512MB ROM because system and other stuffs use it too. The CWM partition layout size is reserved for system use. So the bigger the system size, the smaller the user size.

  • raymond cheung

    Hi, Jayce, but how to do to use 200MB CWM Partition layout. pls advise the procedure (and link if possible).

    it is new for me to on using xxxMB CWM Partition layout.

    Appreciated.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Open flash.cfg in 250MB CWM layout. Change system ya 250M to 200M. Then install CWM layout and Android ROM again.

  • raymond cheung

    Hi, Jayce,
    1) how to open flash.cfg ? any video guide ?
    2) install CWM Layout and Android ROM means re-install CWM version 1.3 and Android 2.3.7, right ?
    Pls advise your professionalism.
    Appreciated.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      1. Use any text editor to open. No video guide.
      2. Yes.

  • Hasib

    followed all the steps… but each time it says ‘no boot device found’
    what should i do?

    • Girimaker

      I think you have the same problem as I had! I had a 16gb SD card (in which I had created also three ext partitions) that was locked by WM7. That was the reaso why I got this error.

      • Hasib

        i dont have any partitions, I’ve 8 gb sd card, wht to do?

        • Girimaker

          Either you can hard reset or reflash again with WP7!

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      All steps… What had you installed already? And which step did you face this no boot device found issue?

      • Hasib

        its running on win 6.5

        • Hasib

          First I installed
          DFT_LEO_MAGLDR113_DAF
          Radio_Leo_2.15.50.14
          HSPL4
          after that when i tried to install “ICS_v1.1_MAG”
          then i got stuck at step no 5. where after scrolling down using the volume button to # 8 (ad recovery) it showed no boot source found.

          currently i rolled back to previous WM 6.5 version
          now how can i turn my device with ICS android?

          • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

            You did not install CWM.

              now every thing is fine but i’m stuck at the final graphical illusion which continues to play forever. I read from ur previous comment that i need to have CWM for 250 mb partition layout instead of 400 mb. but i cant find 250mb layout from any where. plz send the link from where i can download it.

              • eyal

      • M.J

        Beta 1!!!!!!! why????

  • Ash

    Hey Jayce,

    I was running CorDroid 2.2.1 then tried to upgrade to ICS 4.0 using your instructions as above.

    It all works but as some users have already stated, ICS 4.0 it just hangs in the animation screen forever…

    I have all the the Prerequisites as you’ve mentioned but tried to check the partition size..in MAGLDR Boot Menu:

    2. Boot AD SD its keep saying “SD kernel Open failed” and when i check 3. Boot AD NAND it keeps saying “NAND kernel open failed”

    Does this mean I will have to partition my SD card again?

    Many Thanks
    AsH

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Boot AD SD failed is normal since you don’t have SD Android. But failed to boot AD NAND is not normal since you already install ICS.

  • Ash

    So plz, what do you suggest I do???, Im a newbie and trying to find my way around….Thanks Jayce!

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Take your time to study the installation guide.

  • HvdG

    Hi,

    I just completed al the described steps, and successfully installed ICS on my HTC HD2.
    Thanks a lot for your easy to understand tutorials, since i am not very experienced on these things.

    It seems that the beta6.zip is VERY stable (a lot more than Win6,5) and i don’t care there are some things that aren’t working. now i at least have a phone that can call, text, email….

    However i do have a question:
    Is it possible to use the android market?
    I seem to have some problems, when i want to download an application, i select download > accept and Download, thereafter the phone says:
    ” Fout ‘appx’ kan niet worden gedownload wegens een fout”
    Meaning:
    “‘appx’ can’t be downloaded due to a fault…”

    I did every step described, and was connected to 3g + wifi….

    Maybe its a not so smart question, but i appreciate your help!

    HvdG

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Android Market is working fine to me. Try to ask others at XDA see.

  • Malai Masrhiem

    Hi,

    Great work on the Icecream Sandwich. i downloaded your froyo before and it was fantastic. i’ve successfully downloaded and upload the Icecream Sandwich but its lagging. How do i make it faster? i mean the graphics and functions are all lagging. not as smooth as i wish it would be. how do i resolve it?

    also my data connection through my local mobile service provider is not working. just to let you know, i’ve download the Beta1 version. if i download Beta2 would it make things faster?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Get the latest beta version. I did not test it personally but performance should be better and faster.

      • Malai Masrhiem

        Thanks for the advise. i’ve down’oaded the Beta7 version and it runs really smooth and fast. on the other hand, my camera doesn’t work and i’m still not connected to the local data connection through my service provider. these are the only 2 things wrong with the Beta7 version. hope you can help.

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Need to wait developers to fix them…

        • Malai Masrhiem

          also what difference does the different sizes in partitions make? i went for the 250mb. should i go for the 500mb?

          • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

            CWM layout partition? That is the place to store system files. No point to use bigger size if system files are only 200MB. You get lesser user disk space with bigger system size.

            • Malai Masrhiem

              oh i see…. i went on ahead and downloaded the 150 partition. now my phone is stuck. how do i uninstall the 250 partition?

              • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                No need to uninstall. Just install 200M, it will replace it.

                • Malai Masrhiem

                  Thanks. at the moment its saying NAND kernal failed. so it won’t start. i’ll try to reinstall everything and hope for the best. please advice. thanks dude.

                  • Malai Masrhiem

                    EUREKA!!!! Got it, thanks. but still haven’t got enough space to download from the market. Keep us posted Bro!!!

  • zucubo

    Hello! I’ve installed many Android Versions allready an my HTC HD2 and they all where great. now i have followed your steps and installed Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Now my BIG QUESTION is: Can i do something to have “more memory” on the phone? because i just keep getting those >full memory< messages. I've allready tried (more than once) to partition my sd card (16 gb micro sd hc) but everytime it has not worked. the memory of the card will be shown as 13 gb free but the memory phone stays the same.. can you PLEASE!! help me on this one?!

    Thanks!

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      You can try to find Android 4.0 ROM that use A2SD+ in XDA. This should solve low disk space issue. Low memory issue? I also have no idea.

      • zucubo

        Hi Jayce, you mean you have no idea how to make a partition on a sd card or if its possible to make one with this ROM? Can’t you help me and tell me what I’m doing wrong and why my disk space always stays the same although the partition has been made?

        thanks!

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          I know how to make partition on SD card. But don’t know how to make the Android ICS ROM to use it.

            yeah, I don’t know.

              • Yorick

                Alright, I know what you mean.
                But what do I have to download?

                • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                  What did you download last time?

                  • Yorick

                    I just installed the 250 MB.
                    And it works now!
                    But I have very little internal memory left.
                    What can I do to get more internal memory?

                    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                      Change flash.cfg in 250MB CWM partition layout. For system ya 250M to 200M. Then install it again. And Android ROM again.

  • rajavel

    Hi jayce, i installed beta7, it’s working great. but if i suppose to play HD VIDEOS (1080&720Pixels) not playing properly in any video player(mob player,etc), video streaming not properly.. any idea….

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Android 4.0 does not support 720p playback smoothly yet. And HD2 can’t play 1080p smoothly at all.

  • Jose

    Thanks for all your videos they have been a lot of help to me. I have jusr one quick question… how do I know what kind of radio, Magldr and Hspl versions i have? Thank again have a good day :)

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Refer to the guides. You can check HSPL and MAGLDR version but not radio.

  • HvdG

    Hi,

    last week i installed ICS on my HD2, which was great! However, a few days ago my touch screen didn’t work anymore. but after a few hours it started working again. i experienced this a couple of times, and now the touch screen doesn’t work anymore.

    I figured, i needed to reinstall the ROM. So i started your guide at step 11.
    But the problem didn’t disappear.

    My question is:
    How do i completely reinstall your guide, including the prerequisites (which i completed via your guide)?

    Thanks in advance,
    HvdG

  • Wouter

    Hi there,

    I have a small problem:
    Everything works untill I have to reboot it (when the screen gives some weird colours).
    I waited the whole day, but it remains at this screen!

    do you know what’s wrong?

    Greetz

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Sorry, I am not sure what is the weird colours screen that you mentioned about. Can explain in detail?

      • wouter

        Well its the screen that is supposed to pop up.

        in your video you fast forward this
        In the video it starts at about 1:50

        I tried to install different drivers
        and to reinstall everything but nothing works…
        just to be safe:
        What driver and capacity did you use?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Oh, you have boot loop issue.

          How much CWM partition layout did you install?

          • Wouter

            I have seriously no idea!
            I think the biggest one
            What do you prefer?

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              200MB.

              • Wouter

                okay but how do i reinstall evrything?
                because everytime i start up my HTC
                it gives the weird colouring screen!

                • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                  Nope. Install CWM then install Android ROM.

  • Anthony

    Hey this is a great update, but whenever i plug in my usb i dont know how to turn into disk drive anymore =\
    Also camera doesnt work ^.^

  • Dennis Claros

    When do u think this will be done? like the camera problem etc .. so i can use it as an everyday OS ,… its really awesome btw. good job :)

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      It is depended on developers. No body know…

  • Anthony

    I was looking at the video and planned to port the rom over, but i still want to keep my current custom rom also, is there a way to dual boot?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Yes, dual boot NAND WP7 and SD Android. But I did not try it on Android 4.0.

      • Anthony

        well is there a way to dual boot android 2.3.5 and 4.0, or is dual boot only wp7 and andriod?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Yes, NAND Android and SD Android.

          • Anthony

            alright thanks man home come i never thought about that haha, two thumbs up for the help and the quick response, keep the good work up man

  • Michael

    Hey beta 8 works the best it even boots up faster thanks for posting this my brother gave me his HD2 he was just gonna throw it away wait till he see this.

    • Michael

      Man it’s even loading up all of my apps that I have on my Photon 4g!!!!

      • luther

        how about the camera? tetering, etc..

        • Michael

          no camera is still not working but seems that everything else is,it automatically downloaded all the apps I have on my photon 4g as well as all my contacts and they all seem to work except the one that work with camera,even Netflix works you tube etc…. out side of the camera I feel like I have a new phone,I wasn’t bold enough to try this on my Photon,but like I said before my brother was gonna trash it so I gave it a shot glad i did. don’t have a sim card to play with since I’m with Sprint at the moment so I cant comment on how the phone calls work. But if your gonna do it use beta 8! that’s the latest one.

  • K. Lam

    Hi Jayce,

    Is there a way to update from beta to beta instead of clean install? so I can keep all my setting and apps.

    What are some of the common skin pack for android? icons and theme wise.

    Thanks, love your site.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Yes, just install Android ROM without wipe data and cache.

      Did not research on the theme. No idea.

        Thank you.

    Is camera working in Beta9?

        Camera is extremely buggy. The HAL camera update is supposed to fix the problem. Jayce, can you show me the installation process for the driver update?

  • Anthony Jackson

    Hi Jayce,
    I just finished downloading and installing the process as in your video and website. I used the beta 10 version and 400mb partition CWM. What is the normal booting time because i already waited for 2 hours for the booting to finish. I think i have problem somewhere. Need your help to resolve the problem. Appreciate for your feedback.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Please use 220MB CWM partition for beta10.

  • Mortis

    I already have cyanogenmod 2.3.7 on my HD2 and I just want to update it to the current version. I copied the zip to my SD card and extracted to the SD card as well but I left the .zip too just in case. When I select 8. AD Recovery, it says no boot sources…what am I doing wrong?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Are you using ClockworkMod Recovery v1.3?

      • Mortis

        Actually I’m downloading it right now. Which one do you recommend? 150, 250, or 400?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          220MB for beta10.

  • Mortis

    Everything worked perfectly! Thank you so much!

  • Mcoy_Bahrain

    many thanks Jayce…. I got now my Ice Cream Sandwich in my HD2….. Well Done……….

  • Reggie

    Hi Jayce!
    You did a great job!
    I have one question: How can I extend the storage space of 250 mb? I downloaded 5-6 app from market and now it says there is no space available for downloading other apps…

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Use smaller CWM layout size like 220MB. This will free up 30MB compare to 250MB CWM layout.

      • Reggie

        But i think it’s still not enough. I was thinking about 1 GB…

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Need to wait for A2SD+ support on ICS ROM then.

  • zeus007

    i’ll compelety install ics on my hd2,but its hang on boot page and restar again and reapeat this over and over.please help me!!!

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Hi zeus007, how much CWM partition size did you install?

  • zico

    heey you have a nice tut but i cant find How to Partition pls help me please

  • Nissim

    I brought my HD2 already rooted, and running gingerbread. I wanna upgrade it to ics now. Is it safe to say that I have the radio, magldr and everything already and i just need to follow your instructions. Btw when i use rom manager to back up my current rom, it just reboots skipping the actual process. And when I do it manually i go to my bootloader (magldr 1.13) and i go to recovery it says” Cannot read ramdisk image” Please any help, IM dying to do this.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Do you have all the same components and versions in prerequisites?

      • Nissim

        Well to tell you the truth I dont know. I didnt hack it myself so I dont know what the man did to the HD2. It originally a windows phone and he put gingerbread on so I assume he did the prerequisites. If I have to redo them I will, but if I were to do them twice would damage anything?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Only install those that you don’t have. No need to reinstall if version is the same.

          • Nissim

            Yes, but youre not understanding I dont know which I do and which I dont have. If somebody already put a custom rom on my phone does that mean I have them? My gingerbread is on nand does that help?
            Btw when i bootload it and try to go to ac recovery it gives me an error saying “caanot read ramdisk image” and when i try to backup in rom manager it just reboots without saving anything. Please try to answer all my questions.

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              No. No.

              • Nissim

                I think I just understood something. I clicked the videos for the prerequisites, and if you want to put magldr you need the custom radio and SPL-2.08.HSPL. Well I have magldr 1.13 so I must have those two as well. My only question now is how come when i try to back up from rom manager or magldr, it says cannot read ramdisk image. If you could answer that you would be more super then you already are. Thanks in advance.

                • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                  I do not use ROM Manager. No idea. I use CWM to backup / restore.

                  • Nissim

                    Thank you so much. It turned out i broke my cwm recovery because of rom manager. So I fixed it and followed your video, thanks a billion.

  • http://- Jan

    Hello Jayce,

    I used:
    – HSPL4
    – 2.14.50.04 and later 2.15.50.14
    – magldr 1.13
    – recovery 150mb and later 250mb
    – beta 10

    I f*cked up i think. Id did all the steps (my win7-laptop would not open CustumRUU so i did that on my winXP-pc) and the other steps on my win7-laptop). When i installed beta 10 it went oke till the startup of the phone. The HTC-letters in green kept standing on the screen.

    Since then i tried the 2.15.50.14 and the 250mb. The problem is now that what ever i install, i dont get the black screen with the choices where you can scroll with the vol-button.
    – it starts to the green HTC en then does nothing
    – when vol-down & power:
    PB81100 SS-BC
    SPL-2.08.HSPL 8G XE
    0x05
    CotullaHSPL 0x50

    what to do now??

    • http://- Jan

      I tried all the steps in the right sequence on 1 PC (my XP-pc) Maybe that was the problem, because i did 1 step on the XP-pc and the rest on the win7-laptop.
      But i still cant get in to the android flash mode from where you can run the recovery.

      Please help!

      • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

        Can you load MAGLDR?

        • http://- Jan

          • http://- Jan

            I think that it is the MAGLDR screen yes. But i cant stop it or choose something, it just boots android ics. But evry time its gets stuck at the green HTC sign.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      What do you mean by cannot connect?

    • Dupree

      You need Windows 7 mobile device center (32 or 64 bit). Also there are good “how to vids on youtube”

      http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=3182

      I’m planning on upgrading to ICS 4.0 too and was having the same problem just getting it connected to my pc. My cause was a damaged usb cable in the end.

      Also, read through comments on this page. You find the answer to almost anything.

    hi all! do u have any update about how its works with the HTC hd2?? for example, is it better than 2.2 or 2.3 ?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      ICS on HD2 is getting better each day. Thanks to all the developers. Better than 2.2 or 2.3? You need to try it to find out yourself.

    Hello
    thank u very much.
    I have my HD2 with windows mobile 6.5
    I have 2 Qs:
    1- Is installing this android 4 safe or i should try the older versions first
    2- Can i go back to windows mobile 6.5 (just in case!) and is it safer to install it on SD or NAND

    Waiting ur response

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      1. Safe but not 100% stable.
      2. Yes. SD or NAND is up to you. Both are safe to me.

          o sorry Jayce…
          here my mistake, i am using MAGLDR V1.11 and now upgrade in on v1.13…

  • uday

    Dear Jayce…
    here i install all thing….but i thing i have getting problem now……i don’t know where i did mistake….i thing i am confused on ClockworkMod Recovery Partition Size….after finished install DFT MAGLDR Bootloader v1.13 then i installed 150 MB Partition….is it suitable for my MIUI v 2.2?
    and i did not do any thing at that time. have i install anything other in SD card?or have to partition on my SD card???? then i put NexusHD2-IceCreamSandwich_Beta10 on SD card and do as your video….and on formatting process i saw there were :
    No app2sd partition found. skipping format of /sd-ext
    so i think i have to Partition for my SD?
    and anything have to copy on SD???
    please help me…….

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Yes, 150MB is okay for MIUI. But you need 220MB for ICS beta10. No need to have app2sd partition.

      • uday

        Thanx a lot……
        Its work done.
        Thank you so much again….

        • jatin

      • Kazu

        can we do the partitioning in ClockworkMod Recovery, or thru HD Toolkit?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          You need to reinstall CWM layout with PC. Can’t do it on CWM. Did not try HD Toolkit before., No idea.

          • Kazu

            So, should I purge everything with Task29, or just install the 250M Recovery?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          You need to use 220MB.

  • Kazu

    From your video it seems kinda laggy. But in other video (which uses the same distro) its really snappy. what’s ur personal scale? From 1-5, 1 being freaking laggy and 5 being silky smooth.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Yes, beta1 is slow. Latest build should be better now.

    So whenever I try to put the .zip file in it randomly stops and says to specify area to which you want to place file. I’m putting it in my SD card using MassStg, am I doing something wrong? Help appreciated.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      If USB MassStg is not working properly, try to copy it with SD card reader instead.

    Does this rom support a2sd+

  • david

    hi jayce,

    thanks for making this tutorial, the first part of this work is so much easier thanks to you.
    now here’s my problem: at step 14 i select the NexusHD2-IceCreamSandwich_Beta10.zip and press call. however instead of starting to install things my phone goes right back to the clockworkmod recovery screen. i’ve installed the 250mb version.

    what should i do?

    • david

      btw and this is probably irelevant but the ClockworkMod Recovery is v3.0.0.5 and not v1.3 but as this is the same in your video this should not be a problem right?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Try 220MB CWM layout on beta10.

      • david

        sorry, accidentaly started a new question.
        where can i get that one, its not on xda developers:

    OK I TRY ..THANKS

  • Felix

    I pre-excuse myself for maybe not reading the instructions enough. But before I update I’d like to know if my phone is able to being turned into an android. Here is its information:

    OS: 5.2.21869
    Manilaversion:2.5.19211619.0
    ROM-version: 1.66.413.2 (76641) SVE
    Radio-version:2.07.51.22_2
    Protocol-version: 15.32.50.07U

    (Not sure about the translations, essentially swedish)

    I know, for example, that the radio version may have to be updated. But I’m uncertain that my OS or even my phone can simply be turned into an android without any issues.

    Can anyone please give me some input? I want to learn, so please bother!

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Yes, you can install Android as long as you can install all the prerequisites.

    Hay Jayce,

    i followed all the steps to install Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on my hd2 but it stucks on the screen before the android start ( which you did fast forward on the video )
    Does it take a very long time or maybe there is a problem

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Hi Maher, how much CWM layout size did you install?

      • maher

        when i installed CWM i haven’t given any choice to choose the size . so please can you explain to me where can i find the size or where can i change it ??

        Thanks

  • maher

    i opened flash.cfg file by notepad and find the following information :

    recovery rrecov|ro|nospr filesize recovery-raw.img
    boot yboot|ro 8M
    system ya 400M
    cache ya 8M
    userdata ya|asize|hr all size so i think it’s 400 M and the CWM only need 250 M right ??

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Depend on the version of ICS that you install. Beta10 needs 220MB.

      • Maher

        i modified the details of flash file to be the same in your guide and it worked, thank you very much Jayce.

        unfortunately, there is another problem that the WiFi doesn’t see any of the available networks .

    Hi, I am a newbie to this. I have a Tmobile HD2. I wanted to know if doing the above steps to install ICS will wipe out windows 6.5? I am looking for something like a dual boot where I can have my windows 6.5 and ICS on the phone. I dont want to wipe out windows 6.5 and the data in the as this is my main phone.
    Appreciate if anyone can let me know if it is possible to have both.

      Hi hesham, how much CWM layout size did you install?

      • hesham hamdt

        it’s installed just fine , i reinstall CWM with 256mb
        , now i install apps , and it’s works awesime with me , but there is alittle internal space , can i install CWM with 400mb, and what will happens if i did???

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          It won’t able to boot into Android if you use 400MB. Use 220MB, so you can have extra 30MB on user disk space.

          • hesham hamdt

            sorry my friend , but how can i do it ???

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

    I used the below values…
    boot yboot|ro 10M
    system ya 200M
    cache ya 10M

    and I feel its a little slow… is there any changes I need to do to make it faster??? and if so what are the steps I need to redo to change these settings???

  • Andyboy

    Hi i own a HTCHD2 with 6.5 windows, and i am a IT professional. since i am new to all this . i was very much interested in installing the android 4.0.1 ICS. could you provide me the detailed links to take a complete backup of the existing windows on my original ROM on my phone so also to install the new 4.0.1 ICS .
    I would also need to know whether it would affect my carrier Zain (kuwait) for any issues. etc.
    when is the final release expected for the android 4.0.1 since it is still on beta.

    regards,

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Sorry, I don’t have Windows Mobile backup ROM. However, you can download official WinMo ROM from HTC website.

      No idea about your carrier too.

      You can try the latest ICS version here – http://www.jayceooi.com/2012/02/21/download-install-nexushd2-android-4-0-3-ics-cm9-rom-for-htc-hd2/

      • Andyboy

        can i backup my htc HD2 and do the process to update to ICS 4… will my carrier work with my new update…
        I guess i think this is still runnning on beta version .. is the final release anytime soon so i can wait..

        andrew

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                • Aleks

                  the touch wont work because there is cable under the red(last) button of the phone.
                  Try to push litle harder that button and you`ll should make again the connection for the touch screen. For me worked out and for many others.
                  I hope this will resolve your problem.

  • Johnnie

    Hi! Jayce, so listen i installed every thing and did everything follwed by the videos and instructions. now im a little stuck. i dont know if i was suppose to download the android zip to my sd card before all this? but now i cant even get into my sd card because windows mobile is wiped from my device. how can i find a way to get to my sd card so i can install it?

    thanks! :)

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Use SD card reader or MassStg in MAGLDR to copy.

      • Johnnie

        ok thanks…now i have another problem lol sry =/. i did that and i downloaded the android zip for 4.0.3 and for some reason it wont fully download onto my 16gb sd card. ive been trying everything. even “clearSD MBR” thinking i had to format my sd card. and when i did still nothing. what am i doing wrong?

        • Johnnie

          and idk if this helps but in my HD2 appears “no app2sd partition found skipping format of sd-ext” when i do the ” full wipe”? not sure =/

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          How did you copy it? SD card reader or USB Mass storage mode?

          • Johnnie

            nvm i got it! i used usb mass storage mode instead. thank you for your tutorial!! :)

            • Steve

              how did u solve it? i got the same problem, i´ve copied mith mass storage mode, pls help ;)

              • Johnnie

                even after that it took a while to solve it. for some reason it wouldnt copy onto the sd card until i completely deleted everything off of it and formatted it. from there it pretty much installed android onto my hd2. what exactly are you stuck at?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Hi Andres, you need 220MB CWM for beta10.

  • gogo

    can i install this directly to the hd2 hard drive or do i need to use the sd card! i prefer not to use the sd card for it but if its the only way then i guess not a big deal

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      It will install on NAND memory. But need to install from SD card first. So SD card is needed.

                    • Aleks

                      the best solution to not walk around like a [fly without head :)] is to “format” your phone like PC.
                      So, download task 29 and install it with the tri colour screen.( VOL down and power button).
                      After this your phones “hdd” will be empty like you format C:/.
                      And you should start everything from start for the rom you want, except the 2.08 HSPL.
                      AND THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS TO FOLLOW UP THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE ROM YOU WANT!-DONT HURRY, READ READ READ.
                      THESE are llinks for the ics witch will help you a LOT.

    From MAGLDR v1.13 Bootloader to go down to 8. AD Recovery, when I press call button… there is no ClockworkMod Recovery loaded but this NO BOOT SOURCES appear… why??

    • Aleks

      because you are probably transfering from wip7?
      and you should start all proceses for android instalation, you have it here on the blog.

      oh, you need to make recovery partition!!!

        Hi, thanks for the suggestion. Just did it. But same thing happened. It does not give proper respond when password is more than 16 char. Wonder if there is any known version that works for this one. I really need wifi. Older versions are also fine. Thanks.

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Hmm… I think that you need to use Gingerbread build in this case. Might be ICS issue then.

              ICS is still not 100% stable and fast. You can try other latest ICS version. Or use Gingerbread build which is stable and fast.

              • Kasper

                Hi :)

                Sorry it was just in the start :) i was a little bit to fast to say that :)

                but i will still ask you…

                Is andorid 2.3.7 best or andorid (ICS) 4.0.3 best (just wanna hear :) )

                but thx for all the help and…

                Youre Awsome dude :D

                • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                  For the moment, Gingerbread on HD2 is better. Future will be ICS.

        I’m currently on that screen. I wasn’t sure if it was suppose to take that long so I restarted it and realized its taking just as long. Will it take that long every time the phone is restarted? Have you seen or heard of cases where it stays on that screen?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Hi ramin, please refer to CWM installation guide.

  • ramr

    Great guide! Before I get into my problem, I want to thank you.

    Tried to upgrade to ICS from an old existing Froyo ROM that was on it when I bought the phone. I have the T-Mobile HTC HD2, if that makes a difference.

    Verified hspl, radio version, updated magldr from 1.11 to 1.13, installed 250mb-sized cwm 1.3 (or 3.0.0.5). All of this worked without a problem.

    Then, from CWM, I did the following, in this order:

    – formatted SD card with 512mb (0 mb swap size) partition for a2sd

    – mounted SD card on pc and transferred the latest NexusHD2-ICS-CM9_V1.5.zip (checksum already confirmed)

    – wiped data/factory reset

    – wiped cache

    – wiped dalvik

    – flashed NexusHD2-ICS-CM9_V1.5.zip

    – rebooted

    #1. After the reboot it froze on the screen “requesting superuser permissions.” Had to pull battery and wait a few.

    #2. After next reboot, it got past the first setup dialogue (where you click “next”) and loaded with date and time (it took a long time to get there; I was asked by Android if I wanted to FC Settings, it was so slow). On date and time setup screen, it froze, with a dialogue at the bottom saying “superuser permissions denied.” Another battery pull.

    #3. Rebooted into CWM and repaired permissions. Rebooting into Android gave me the same problem as #2. Tried FC’ing settings this time when it asked me, thinking I shouldtry to get out of the setup process so I could enable superuser. Screen just went black except for status bar at top and it froze.

    #4. Wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache, wipe dalvik, repartion sd card, fix permissions, reboot into Android

    Now it won’t even get as far as before; it just freezes on the colorful multicolored spinning platforms screen.

    I feel like I’ve followed everything to the letter, including reading the ROM’s thread at xda. I don’t want to do this all over again. Is there something simple I’m maybe forgetting?

    Thanks!

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Hi ramr, how much CWM layout size does the ROM chef recommend for NexusHD2-ICS-CM9_V1.5?

  • ramr

    They recommend “at least 165MB.” I saw nothing about it needing a custom size.

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=21173918

    Update: removed the sd card and did a slow format on my Win7 laptop using card reader. Then left the phone alone (with battery pulled) for a couple hours. Voila! It booted into Android setup, let me grant SU permissions permanently and I setup the phone. Oh, did I say, “voila?” I spoke too soon. It soon froze up again after about 10 minutes and was getting hot (this is just a problem with some htc hd2’s, as you know. It’s happened in the past with my Froyo ROM but not constantly like right now.) So…another battery pull, but I only waited a few minutes; not a couple hours like before. You guessed it; it booted but froze on the Android unlock screen. It really needs some time to cool down!

    I think all the tricks that the ROM chef put into it to make the hardware work with ICS just pushes my phone too far. Living in Thailand probably doesn’t help, either. It was 98 degrees F today with no aircon in my apartment. Still, I was having this problem only occasionally with the old ROM…even in the heat. I don’t think ICS is in my future. Do you know of a good Gingerbread ROM for overheating issues. Is there such a thing? I’ve searched for awhile, but haven’t found anything yet.

    Thanks for everything, sorry for the long post.

            Hi Jayce,
            What is correct CWM layout size? And how can i recognize the CWM size?

            Is it possible to install camera driver or hardware accelerator for htc hd2 camera?

    hello,

    I’ve installed everything you’ve described and now I am on the beginning screen with that graphic that repeats itslef, but how long do I have to wait for it? I am waiting now for at least one hour.
    Can you help me please?

    thank you

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Hi Esra, may I know how much CWM layout size did you install?

      • Esra

        I don’t remember becuase I tried all of them because some didn’t work, but can I see it somewhere on the phone? If not, can you give me then the right one I need?
        thank you again

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Hi Esra, you need 220MB CWM layout size for this ROM.

          • Esra

            so 250 is also enough? and do I have to re-install everything else?
            thank you

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              Can’t be more or less. Need exactly 220MB. Install CWM. Then Android ROM.

  • dylan

    Hello Jayce…… please please tell me how to uninstall this ICS on my phone……. many thanks.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Just install Gingerbread ROM to remove ICS.

  • raymond cheung

    hI, jAYce,
    found several HTC SENSE ROM in your websites, currently my htc hd2 using ics 4.0.3, not sure whether i can use for Download Sensation XL NAND Android A2SD+ Zip ROM for HTC HD2
    for my HTC to enjoy Beats Audio ?

    http://www.jayceooi.com/tag/htc-sense/

    and what is the process to load in htc hd2 ?

    thanks.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Yes. Installation process is the same. Just make sure that you re-install correct CWM layout size. And create EXT3 partition on SD card.

    Thanks for your great work and vids.

    Kind regards, from the netherlands

    • Saskia

      got the answer…. but now it seems apply/sdcard/update. zip…..seems that my foon doesnt see that ….installation of that got aborted

      • Saskia

        ha, found it. Seems that you have to hit the powerbutton when having installation complete on the screen. So now its busy as in the vid.

        Thanks to you, help from my brother and a little from my bf….

        THANKS Big time!

        • Saskia

          Hi Jayce, one more question. Have installed the 250Mb, but how can I switch from the internal memory card to my mini SD card 2G. Still busy checking out if I can find a way to do it manual in the phone, in windows the phone always asked me where i want to storage things on.

          Is there anyway I can use up the 2G on the mini SD card instead of the user storage ?

          Hope you can help me out with this matter.

          Thanks. ;-)

          • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

            Hi Saskia, you can move to phone storage if the app supports it.

    Hi Jayce,

    My HTC HD2 will not boot after I was in the bios. Can you help me to fix it.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      BIOS? Which screen is that?

      • Mathijs Harbeek

        The color screen. With the information of HSPL

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          I see. Just pull out battery. Put it back. Then start your phone.

          • Mathijs Harbeek

            I already try it.

            But he will still not boot…

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              What had you done until you got this issue?

              • Mathijs Harbeek

                First sorry for my incorrect english.

                I shutdown my android what I installed 2 weeks ago.
                Then I boot into the colored screen.
                And then I pull out my battery for a reboot.
                but he wont boot anymore.

                • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                  Which Android version? If can, give me the website link. You can try to reinstall that Android ROM again.

                  • Mathijs Harbeek

                    Yes I will, but he don’t start up at all.’
                    And the battery isn’t empty.

                    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                      Err… You can’t even power on your HD2 now?

                  • Mathijs Harbeek

                    Nope. Since I was in the colored screen….

                    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                      Sorry Mathijs, you can’t do anything when you can’t power on it.

                    • Mathijs Harbeek

                      Mmm, I tried an hard reset, and he boot!!!

                      Thanks for your time

  • Mathijs Harbeek

    Hallo Jayce,

    Now I have another question,
    Is it possible to make the partition that I install android to bigger? As when I’ve installed Android I only have 80MB left for apps. Where the maximum size is 150MB. And to my knowledge, the internal memory is a total of 500MB

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Install Android ROM with A2SD+ feature. It will install apps and data on SD card then.

      • Mathijs Harbeek

        Oke, thanks

        But I have installed now the Android 4.0 ROM on a 350MB space.
        But he only gives the load screen from Android 4.0

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Hi Mathijs, this ROM needs 220MB CWM layout size.

  • Ferdnand

    I would like to install Android 4.0 but I’ve never been on that screen for booting. Can you help me?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Hi Ferdnand, may I know what had you installed so far?

      • Ferdnand

        I downloaded that package and that package includes boat, System and meta-inf in
        Now I put that on my sd card but when I want to start (with the on / off button pressed) so if he starts differently. And this is my problem. Can you help me?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Err… Ferdnand, what had you installed in those prerequisites list?

  • Ferdnand

    I do not remember :(
    Can you give the link for the download so I can try again

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      All the information is in this article. Take your time to study them.

      • Ferdnand

        Thanks !!

      • Ferdnand

  • edgar

    HI i am completely new at this and yesterday tried to install TypooN cm7 on my htc hd2. it was a complete fail and i ended up having to install the stock ROM for tmoblie us htc hd2. i know this process removes MAGLDR but does it also delete my previous HSPL( 2.08) and radio ?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Just boot into tri-colour bootloader to find out.

      • edgar

        thanks

  • Hwa

    Hello Jayce I have installed ics on my HD2 but everything is so slow and laggy eg (when I click the menu/applist button it takes ages when it zooms) and my interal memory is only 151mb so i can only download up to 7 apps, did i do somthing wrong, if i did please tell me how to fix and by the way i have 8gb sd card

  • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

    @Aman: Sorry, can’t help much on the camera. Please consult ROM chef. As for charging auto turn on phone, this is normal.

  • Shadi

    Hi Jayce,
    I have installed Beta 10, and followed the whole process, it works smoothly, and no problems, but the WIFI Connection is not finding any network, also cannot connect to the mobile data plan, and the Video recording is not working even that the still shots is working well.
    Please Advice,
    Thanks a Lot

  • Danny

    hi jayce,

    i apologize for beimg a hassle but i have everything on my phone android 4.0 and all but theres an issue! i dont have a back or menu tab on the touch screen like you did! how do i fix it? becuz everything else is perfect except i have no back button it did that with every rom i tried can you help?

    • Hwa

      same here but who needs a back/home/taskthing when you already have the buttons
      you have the back button the home button and the task thing if you hold the window logo for 3 seconds

  • Danny

    thats what im saying when i downloaded the rom my home button and back button stopped working and i saw on your video that you dont even use the buttons because there a back and home on the actuall screen that you can touch thats what i want cuz i cant go back or anything on any rom

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Beta10 ROM does not have on-screen buttons anymore…

  • Danny

    do you know any roms that do have on screen buttons?

  • yarbar

    So I’ve followed your steps exactly, installed everything correctly. Now that I have my phone all set and ready, my touch screen isn’t responding to anything. My hard buttons are still working, but my phone (since I’ve started running ICS on it) wont do anything. I’m stuck on the “Welcome” screen and can’t progress any further than that because well, I can’t press anything. Any suggestions? Should I try re-installing something? Please help, I really need a phone to use.

    • yarbar

      Oh and I’ve already tried resetting and all that jazz.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Hi yarbar, may I know what had you installed so far? Please list them one by one.

      • yarbar

        SPL-2.08.HSPL
        Radio that support 576 MB RAM
        DFT MAGLDR Bootloader v1.13
        ClockworkMod Recovery v1.3
        Nexus HD2-ICS-CM9_v1.5 and then when my screen wasn’t working, i tried using the one you suggested (NexusHD2 Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Beta10 NAND ROM)

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Both Android ROM also stuck at ‘welcome’ screen? How much CWM layout size did you install?

          • yarbar

            Yeah, both are stuck on welcome. I mean if I press the hard buttons it’ll take me to the emergency dialer and the prompt to shut off my phone, but i can’t press the screen to take any action further than this.

            I’m pretty sure i used 250.

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              Hmm… Suspect your touch screen hardware is faulty already. Try to revery to Windows Mobile to double confirm.
              http://www.jayceooi.com/2011/08/15/how-to-restore-stock-rom-on-htc-hd2-video/

              • yarbar

                so i’m attempting that right now, and it says “Update Terminate UPDATE FAIL”

                • yarbar

                  wait, nevermind. I got it. I tried using the USB method and it worked. It looks like it is faulty hardware since the screen is still not working. :(

  • Shahed Nabi

    Hello Jayce
    If I install icecream sandwich android on my htc hd2 (512mb), using your video tutorial, and if i remove my sd card, will my phone still remain on icecream sandwich?

    Thanks.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Hi Shahed, yes. This ICS ROM is NAND build.

  • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

    @mihir: Restore to stock Windows Mobile and start over again.
    http://www.jayceooi.com/2011/08/15/how-to-restore-stock-rom-on-htc-hd2-video/

  • mihir

    why does it stop freqently…when i reboot the phone? it gets stuck in the part after the logo…now i need to install it again? is their better and more stable version out so i can maybe just put that? :(

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      I have no idea why it stop. Personally, I am still using Gingerbread build which is much more stable.

  • mihir

    what do you say..? what should i do?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      As I replied earlier, restore to stock Windows Mobile and start over again.

  • Darren D

    Hi ,Jayce ,I installed ICS 4.0.3 ,everything works OK ,somehow Netflix no video ,just sound,
    should I go back CM 7 ,and then reinstalled ICS ? ,Thanks

  • Mike

    Instagram is not working for me on this rom. Any ideas as to why??

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Sorry Mike, no idea. You can try other Android ROM if you want.

  • Mike

    I installed cm9 version 1.5 and it works now! That’s definitely a better ics rom than this one.

  • Hassan

    hello Jayce, do u have any solution for HTC 7 and HTC mini, how to convert them to andriod operating system. thanks in advance.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Sorry Hassan, nope.

  • Emil

    Hi Jayce, I’m using win XP which is already administrator. I noticed that your video used win 7 and using ‘run as administrator’ when running phone tools. I double left click the tool, sample is HSPL, it will run (as I said because I’m admin). Will that be okay or I really need to use ‘run as administrator’

    Another thing is HTC HD2 international more durable than HTC HD2 T-Mobile? Thanks a lot! :)

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      No harm to run it as administrator, right?

      No, both build quality is the same to me.

      • Emil

        No harm to run it as administrator. So if I use any tools even if I do not use ‘run as administrator’ I will get all administrative privilege on my HTC once installed? By the way thanks for your first reply.

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          This have nothing to do with your phone.

  • redpert

    hi jayce! can i ask question? is this run in internal or in sd card?

    With your help I added new life to my 2year old HTC HD2.
    I was so depressed with Widows on updates no new games etc.
    Thanks again.

    I have two issues i done know if it is with phones hardware or some thing else.

    1.very frequently a message pops up saying that you have reinserted the sim card and need to restart.

    2. The phone will automatically restart 2 – 3 times a day dont know why.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Maybe it is Android ROM issues. I did not face this before. Try other ROM see.
