How to Install Custom Radio v2.15 ROM on HTC HD2? (Video)

223

Both T-Mobile HD2 and HTC HD2 hava 576 MB physical RAM but HTC HD2 was reduced by software to 512 MB only. Radio v2.07 and above can unlock it to use 576 MB. Why do you need to install custom radio ROM that supports 576 MB? NAND Android and Windows Phone 7 need it. You need to have correct radio ROM in order to use NAND Android and Windows Phone 7. Just follow step by step video guide to install it.

Prerequisites

  • SPL-2.08.HSPL

In order to install custom radio ROM, you need to have HSPL installed on your HTC HD2. Follow this guide ~ How to Install HSPL4 on HTC HD2? to install. I used the latest radio ROM 2.15.50.14 in the video guide. You can use it or any other HTC HD2 Radio ROM version that support 576 MB.

Step by Step Guide

  1. Press volume down button (don’t let go) and power on your phone.
  2. It will load into ‘Red, Green, Blue and White’ screen bootloader.
  3. You can see your HTC HD2 SPL version there.
  4. Connect USB cable from PC to phone.
  5. Serial status will be turned into USB.
  6. At PC, right click on CustomRUU.exe and select ‘Run as administrator’.
  7. Click ‘Yes’ if User Access Control prompt up.
  8. Follow onscreen instructions to install.
  9. Phone will be rebooted after installation finished.
  10. That’s all.

You should able to see R 2.15.50.14 at bottom of the screen with green HTC Logo if you still have Windows Mobile 6.5 on your HTC HD2.

    I have no Ideal what is going on with my HD2. I am following the steps but when I get to the step of installing the rom onto the phone, it keep showing up as error 240 says something about a connection also I notice that your hd2 read 0x05/0x30 mines reads 0x05/0x50 but my SPL is
    -2.08 HSPL and my rom at the bottom reads 2.15.50.14. what am I doing wrong?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      No worry about 0×05/0×30. It does not cause issue here. You can skip to install radio v2.15 since you already have it.

      • De

        Ok So Did the install of the rom and it brought it down to 2.000 or something like that and then I installed the maglgr 1.3 and installed CWM everytime I go to Ad recovery it says No Boots what does that mean?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Which CWM version did you install?

  • De

    At first I put on recovery 1.3 400 and tmobile thing came and froze. So I thought it was the wrong one. So went back retrace my steps then installed recovery 1.3 150. This time I go down to AD Recovery and it reads no boot sources and takes me bake to the maglgr screen. I watched the video and some other was I supossed to put something on my sd card? I thought didn’t have to with the maglgr 1.3 and recovery 1.3 150 or 400.

  • Cillian

    I have spl 3.03 And when i open the installer it says in red writing it will delete all information is there anyway to prevent that?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      You can’t install custom radio ROM with SPL-3.03. You need SPL-2.08.HSPL. Install radio ROM won’t wipe your data.

      • Cillian

        But i want adroid 2.2 and in the Prerequisites it says:

        SPL 3.03
        Radio 2.15
        Official HTC HD2 ROM v3.14
        Android 2.2 Froyo ROM

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Are you using HTC HD2 or T-Mobile HD2? If HTC HD2, installing ROM v3.14 will install SPL-3.03 and radio 2.15 for you.

    Bonjour, j’ai acheté un htc hd2 sous android. le vendeur a supprimer la présentation htc clasique. Est ce normal ou est il possible de conserver la présentation classique htc hd2 ?

    hi Jayce

    I tried to follow your step on flashing rom this version, but I still could not find any kinda written typing of R 2.15.50.14 at bottom of the screen with green HTC Logo, and I think wm 6.5 is not installed too. any suggestion please?

      You installed MAGLDR already, right? Then, WinMo is not there anymore.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Which step did you get the error? And what had you installed previously?

      • JAY

        IM HAVING THE SAME ISSUE, i have only been following the steps as before

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          At which step you get this error?

          • Bart

            I am having the exact same issue. This is what I am doing:

            1. Turning on the device with the volume button down (no USB cabel attached)
            2. The phone shows the screen Red/Green/Blue screen with the white box stating Serial. I plug in the USB cable and it changes to USB.

            In the red screen the following is shown:
            PB81100 HX-BC
            SPL-2.08.HSPL 8G XE
            0x05
            CotullaHSPL 0x40

            3. I run the CustomRUU as Administrator
            4. Tick the ‘I understand the caution indicated…….’ and click next
            5. I tick the box ‘I completed the steps indicated above’ (although I cant seem to connect my HD2 any longer with the Windows Mobile Device Center) and click next
            6. The next screen that pops up states the follwoing: ERROR [240] : FILE OPEN
            The Update Utility can not open the requested file. Please check your Update Utility.

            And thats where the show stops for me. If anyone can give me some guidance that would be highly appreciated.

            Looking forward to the response. Thank you in advance.

  • Sam

    I just reinstal Win6.5 on my Tmobile HTC HD 2. During the process, it install the spl-2.08 which is the radio. I have been trying to upgrade it to 2.15, but i always get “error 270″ update error utility update. I have tried to update the utility through htc hd advance utility update, but still get the same message.

    What do you suggest to solve this error 270

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      You need HSPL to install custom radio…

      • Thomas

        Thanks! HSPL runs fine, with 2.08 result! But with “Update utility 2.15.50.14″ it stops with 99%, with the following message: “ERROR [ERROR] : INVALID COMMAND

        This Update Utility cannot be used for your PDA Phone. Please check your Update Utility.”

        Think the problem is i have no Windows Mobile on my phone?

  • Alfredo

    I successfully installed android, almost everything works, except the sound. I cannot play any videos like in Youtube, or play any music. Any suggestions on what went wrong or something I am missing?
    Thanks in advance.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Most likely is ROM issue. Try other ROM see.

      • Alfredo

        I figured out the issue with sound: I needed to reboot the phone. After rebooting, everything is working very well, I also managed to have wifi calling to work. The marketplace works (for apps), camera, flashlight, GPS, music, internet, pretty complete phone.
        Thank you Jayce for the guide.

  • Eddie

    First off thank you for what you do…i know a lot of the questions on here are dumb, and repetitive, or just come from pure laziness….I’ve tried everything i know and this is pretty much my last hope….here goes…

    i have SPL-2.08.HSPL and Magdl 1.13 on my phone(because it was running gingerbread and now i’d like to upgrade to ics ), i tried installing the 2.15 radio but i get to 96% then phone vibrates 5times and it just stops and the Update utility on my PC says ERROR [262]: UPDATE ERROR, saying it’s communication errors and ask would i like to try and run again…I’ve done this over and over but keep getting the same thing

    if i go to the red green blue screen the green section says “upgrade Rom Code error, Please try again” and in the red section, upper right corner, it says “RUUNBH”

    as of right now my phone is stuck in this “limbo” and i can’t get to the Magdl screen anymore…only the tri-color screen…any help is much appreciated…thank you in advance.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Do you still have SPL-2.08.HSPL?

      • Eddie

        yes…

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Try to install other radio version see. If still cannot, you might need to restore back to Windows Mobile.

    is it still the same step to install radio 2.15 if mine not running on windows mobile anymore (using 2.3.5 gingerbread) n mine baseband version showed 15.42.50.11U_2.15.50.14 is it mean dat mine already radio 2.15?n y still no 576mb ram?sorry if this such a stupid question..im new here~ :P

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Yes, the steps are the same. Baseband should be the radio version. You won’t get all 576 MB RAM as some of them use by graphics, system…

  • htc hd2 newb

    I just bought htc hd2 from someone. It already has android installed.
    How do I know which radio is installed on my phone if i don’t have winmo anymore?
    Also, how do I update the radio when I already have android? All the guides that I see are for updating the radio from winmo…

    Here’s some info from my phone
    PB81120 SS-B3
    SPL-2.08.HSPL 8G XE
    0x05
    CotullaHSPL 0x40

    HTC HD2
    2.3.3
    baseband 15.39.50.07U_2.10.50.26
    kernel version 2.6.32.15_r83-geb94bc6
    tytung@ubuntu #47
    Mod version HyperDroid-G8X-v12
    Build number GRI54

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      2.10.50.26 from baseband 15.39.50.07U_2.10.50.26 is the radio version.

      • htc hd2 newb

        so the guides that I found, they use activesync from winmo to update the radio but I dont have winmo anymore. So how do I update the radio to 2.15.50?
        Also, do I already have HSPL3?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Above guide did not work for you?

          • htc hd2 newb

            wasn’t sure if the above guide is for android too. I thought it’s for winmo.
            I will try it then.
            So would you be able to tell if my phone already has hspl3? it says SPL-2.08.HSPL 8G XE
            Thanks a lot

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              Yes, SPL-2.08.HSPL is the one.

  • htc hd2 newb

    Jayce need your help again. So i followed the above method to update the radio (the update finished successfully) but now my phone is stuck at the android splash screen. Is it because my ROM isn’t compatible with the radio? Not sure what rom it is since i bought it from someone else. Thanks again.

    HTC HD2

    i have no idea whats wrong with my phone, can anyone else. i bought this off gumtree and when i try to the custom thing to get MagDlr (or whatever its called) it freezes… and i have to turn my phone off and it wont boot again for another 10 mins for me to try. i have to leave out the battery. any help would be much appreicated.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      What had you installed on your phone?

      • Scotty

        I am not really sure, do you have a differnt way I can contact you? Because its a bit hard to explain here (first time I’ve ever had a htc phone :/) so yeah.. But when I bought it some guy said he tried to partition something and that’s why it won’t boot properly now. Whenever I turn it on. It says software update failed! Please try again. I have the thing that your ment to put in the sd card but when I power on and press down. It just loads into boot loader and no loading… Comes up. It also freezes continuesly

    I have installed 2.08.HSPL [following your guide since the very beginning], but when finishing installation of radio I get Error 290: INVALID COMMAND.

      Boot into tri-colour bootloader. Then flash radio again see.

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              Hi Ken, as I mentioned before. Camera issue is related to the Android ROM that you use.

              • ken

                im using the ICS 4.0
                is it that it is incompatible with camera….or is there another route to take to get it rectified?

                • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                  Hi Ken, there are several ICS ROM too. If the cone you are using cannot work, try other one.

      Hi Gaurav, try to reinstall it again.

      • Gaurav

        thank u so much jayce for a quick reply.. i tried running the customRuu.exe many times.. should i reinstall Hpcl.. if yes then how should i do it..should i reinstall customruu

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Err… I just realized that you don’t have SPL-2.08.HSPL. You need HSPL to install custom radio ROM.

          • gaurav

            i told u.. i have already installed hspl spl 2.08 in my first comment..

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              SPL-2.08.0000 is not HSPL.

              • Gaurav

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      No need.
      Yes.

      • shyam

        IN MY HD2 SOFTWARE INFORMATION SAYS THAT RADIO VERSION 2.15.50.14!!
        SO CAN I JUMP DIRECTLY TO STEP 3?
        (SPL 2.8 DONE ALREADY)
        Can I Proceed??

        tnx for ur reply

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Yes shyam.

  • Reis

    i followed the steps in the Custum RUU. but instead of letting me updating the rom it says “the update utility can not open the requested file. Please check your update utility.”

    What do i do

    • Reis

      i already have the spl-2.08

      • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

        SPL-2.08.HSPL?

        • Reis

          yes

          • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

            Hmm… It should work then. Try on other PC see.

  • Tom

    hey jayce after installing the radio my phone locked me out saying that my password was incorrect
    can i still go on with the process?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Hi Tom, Android installation has nothing to do with Windows Mobile. So it should be okay to go on.

  • Chris B

    Hi Jayce, for some reason, the .exe file just refuses to launch. All other .exe files on my computer are unaffected, just the CustomRUU.exe.
    Does it need any other programs to make it work? My phone goes into USB mode, and I have Windows Mobile Device center.
    Using vista 32bit.
    Thanks.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Hi Chris, maybe antivirus software is blocking it?

      • Chris B

        I just tried turning off all antivirus and running it, same outcome.
        If I watch closely the processes in task manager, CustomRUU appears for a second, but then dissapears. I’ve never had this happen with any other .exe files, any other ideas?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Maybe you can try on other PC.

  • Chris B

    Actually, now I look at it, my phones radio version is already 2.15.50.14
    Do I need to install this custom one? Or will mine already enable 576mb ram?
    Perhaps you know a way to check, sorry for all the questions.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      No need then in this case.

      • Chris B

        Excellent, On to the MAGLDR. May god have mercy..

    Installting Custom Radio v2.15 ROM on HTC HD2 I am getting Error 202 Connection please check the cable. I used the same cable for installating •SPL-2.08.HSPL. Also it working through active sync. I can browse through Active Sync.

      Hi Nelson, try with other USB port or use another USB cable. If still not working, try on other PC.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Hi Akshay, just follow the WP7 installation guide. It will replace Android.

  • Slug

    Hi there. First of all, thanks for this great work/support. I had w6.5 / Android 2.2 booting with Haret method. Then i look at your guide to have only android (4.x.x) and no more windows.

    Installed in this (bad) order :
    > HSPL 4 > SPL-2.08 (ok)
    > MagDlr v1.13 (ok)
    > cwm v1.3_1550M (did wipe, wipe cache etc..)
    > NexusHD2-Ice-CreamSandwich_Beta10 (ok)

    Phone booted
    booting android from Nand :
    yaffs2 part is /boot
    Load zimage blablabla gogogo blabla ok
    then it blocks on “HTC” waited 20min :(

    i forgot the custom radio damn ! so installed :
    > Custom Radio Leo 2.15.50.14
    But same HTC screen :(

    Here’s my config :
    PB81100 HX-BC
    SPL-2.08.HSPL 8G XE
    0x05 CotullaHSPL 0x40

    My question is : i’m not able to boot on CWM anymore. It’s on auto boot from Nand and then htc screen ..
    I tryed reinstall CWM (cause of course i still can boot in “Vol down/power” method. But USB doesn’t work anymore :s
    kind of Brick ?

    Thanks agin for you work. I really apprciate it.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      How do you load CWM?

  • Slug

    Before this, on boot i had MagDlr then i was able to load CWM.
    Now i’m not able to do anything in MagDlr, it’s on kind of “autoboot” mod :/
    So i can’t load it anymore.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      How do you load MAGLDR then?

      • Slug

        MAGLDR loads automatically in NanD. I just can’t stop this to go back in the menu and select CWM.

      I don’t think so. It might cause by Android ROM itself. Try other ROM see.

              You don’t need Windows mobile installed. Windows Mobile Device Center on Windows 7 should provide the USB driver that needed.
