How to Install MAGLDR on HTC HD2? (Video)

In order to install NAND Android on HTC HD2, you must install DFT MAGLDR Bootloader first. And the good news ~ both LEO512 and LEO1024 are supported. This means US T-Mobile HD2, Europe, Asia and the rest of the world’s HTC HD2 are supported. Do read this post for its usage and more information about DFT MAGLDR Bootloader.

Note – by installing MAGLDR, you cannot boot into Windows Mobile 6.5 anymore. And Android on SD card is not working on MAGLDR v1.11. I tried 2 builds ~ Android booted and hang there. So everything on your phone is gone…


  • HSPL3 ~ SPL-2.08.HSPL
  • Radio that support 576 RAM

No worry, Android on NAND is working. That’s the reason we install DFT MAGLDR Bootloader on our HTC HD2, right? And we will be able to load Windows Phone 7 when the ROM comes out. Okay, let’s get started. If you don’t have HSPL3, please install it by follow the guide ~ How to Install HSPL3 on HTC HD2? (Video). And install radio ROM 2.15 with this guide ~ How to Install Custom Radio ROM on HTC HD2? (Video).

Step by Step Guide

  1. Power off your phone.
  2. Press volume down button (don’t let go) and power on your phone.
  3. It will load into bootloader.
  4. You should get ‘Red, Green, Blue and White’ screen with SPL-2.08.HSPL.
  5. Take off the battery.
  6. Power on your phone.
  7. You should have R at bottom of the screen with green HTC Logo.
  8. Connect USB cable from PC to phone after Windows Mobile loaded.
  9. Select ‘ActiveSync’ and click ‘Done’.
  10. Open DFT_LEO_MAGLDR111.rar with 7-Zip.
  11. Copy MAGLDR111 folder to desktop.
  12. Enter MAGLDR111 folder.
  13. Execute ROMUpdateUtility.
  14. Click ‘Yes’ if User Access Control prompt up.
  15. Follow onscreen instructions to install.
  16. Bootloader will be loaded with USB status during starting of installation.
  17. Phone will be rebooted after installation finished.
  18. DFT MAGLDR Bootloader will be loaded then.
  19. Disconnect USB cable from phone.
  20. That’s all.

Download DFT LEO MAGLDR Bootloader v1.11 here.

It’s not finish yet. Follow this guide ~ How to Install NAND Android on HTC HD2? to install NAND Android.

    • james

      edit: credit goes out to guinhill he pointed me to the solution. first make sure your log in name in windows has administrator rights. then before you try to flash an android rom with magldr make sure that you disable all usb connections in active sync before you attempt to flash an android rom. i now have android running beautifully on my hd2.

    • MAGLDR does not care your Windows Mobile ROM version. As long as you have HSPL3 and correct radio ROM, you are fine.

      • Boko

        Thanks!!!! That was FAST!!!! :)))

      • Gerry

        Jayce, the windows vista 7 fix worked for me after combing the web for 2 days thinking my phone was useless. I finally have WP7 on my HD2. Now I would like to install Android. Will that affect my WP7 installation? Should I have loaded Android then WP7? Kind of new to this MAGLDR stuff. I have the rom loaded on desktop and ready to fire after your response.

        • Yes, NAND Android will replace WP7.

  • zubair

    Dear Jayce,

    I have a problem, i installed the MAGLDR, but whenever i click on the startup button, it gets stuck on the startup screen, ENZ (ENERGIZE). I am not able to get the next screen with the 1 to 10 selection screen (where i have click on flasher screen).

    Please help because my phone is switched off and i can’t get it to work. And if possible, give me any other solution to get it to work.

    • Do you mean that your phone cannot be charged when turn off? I don’t have this issue. The charging orange light is on. But the light won’t turn off even I pull out the USB cable and I cannot turn on my phone. Problem solved after took battery out and put back on. The phone powered on and was charged. 😉

      • zubair

        My phone can be charged and when i insert the usb cable, the orange light is also turned on.
        My issue is that when i installed MAGLDR and after it rebooted and went to the start screen, it gets stuck (hanged) on the main boot screen. What can i do reinstall the rom again or any other rom so i can atleast make my phone to work?.

        Please help…..

        • Do you mean that you stuck at ‘Go Go Go’? If yes, power on your phone and keep holding the power button. It will bring you to MAGLDR page.

          • zubair

            i have tried that as well, i have kept holding the power button for about more than 1 minute but still it is working, as it is still stuck on the GO GO GO.

            please advice.

            • Which version of MAGLDR did you install?

            • zubair

              BTW i am fed up as its been 4 days as my phone is switched off, so today i tried hard reseting the htc hd 2, and whenever it reboots, it gets stuck on the first HTC startup screen. What to do?

              • Can’t help you much if you did not provide the information that I need…

                • Zubair

                  i tried with the version that you have provided in the above download.

                  • asyrafhm

                    it can be solve by installing back the original official ROM. plug in the usb, hold volume down + end call til you see the three colours and at the bottom USB. Then just run the original ROM from your computer. you will able to operate it back as normal.

                    • Bujj

                      I used MAGLDR 1.13, and got stuck at the HTC white screen after running ‘ROM update Utility’. I could go to the red/green/blue with the following text:-
                      PB81100 HX-BC
                      SPL-2.08.HSPL 8G XE
                      CotullaHSPL 0x40

                      But when I hooked the HD2 USB cable, the PC can’t read/connect to HD2. So how to run the original ROM? Pls help. Thanks.

  • KingOfGods

  • May Williams

    • Did you install HSPL3?

  • clive

    Help please Jayce – i followed your steps for HSPL and MAGLDR, used all the links for downloads you supplied and rom
    after the last step before installing the rom i cant get past the ”HTC” screen – thats the only thing visible no numbers etc 😕
    Grateful for any help

    • Sorry, I don’t get you. You said that you installed MAGLDR. And having what problem now? (By the way, can you post question on the correct article, so that I can understand you better.)

    • I have the same now… Just installed MAGDLR and I don’t get past the HTC screen. did you solve it?

  • Hugo

    Hey there Jayce. After looking for ways to solve my problem i think you can help. You see i have a Htc Hd2 and i really want android on it. I was looking into this video and i did everything right. But as soon as i started to upgrade my Rom with the MAGLDR utility update, it got stuck at 0% and couldnt get it to work. So i researched and came to this site. So my question is,,, To make the upgrade work must i first install HSPL3? If so after i install it should i then follow the directions on the video normally or should i need to add something else to my device to make it work properly with android?? Please get back to me ASAP. I would really appreciate it man. Thank you for your time.

    • Sorry, I did not look through the video. But you can try my guide here. 😛

      Yes, you need HSPL3 ~ SPL-2.08.HSPL and radio that support 576 RAM in order to install NAND Android.

      • Hugo

        Haha. No worries man i will. Thanks for replying so fast its really helpful. So in order all i need is
        1. HSPL3 (SPL-2.08)
        2. Custom Radio (576 RAM)
        3. Install NAND Android
        On a sidenote, do you have a guide of how to install android here. If you can give me the link that would be helpful. Thanks again!! 😀

        • Haha… You are on the MAGLDR installation guide article already. Just follow it and continue with the NAND Android installation then. 😉

          • Hugo

            Thank You Jayce!

  • Hugo

    Wow dude, seriously, thanks for all your help i will give it a try and if i have questions ill let you know. Thank you so much JAYCE!!!!! 🙂

  • MBR

    Hi Jayce,

    First of all, I’m new at this. I bought a 2nd hand HD2 (unit is from Manila Philippines) and is running winmo and been using just a week now and decided to install android. So here’s what I did (basing it from another forum):

    I download:
    — HSPL3_PKG.exe
    — DFT_LEO_MAGDLR111.rar
    — DFT Android

    1. I installed HSPL3_PKG.exe, my phone reboots
    2. Then installed MAGDLR1111, however it got stucked at 0% and got an error EROR 262

    What should I do next?

    So I searched for answers which would be easy to understand and found yours. In your post you mentioned of a Radio, do I have to install this to make it work? Is my phone bricked? Hope not.


    • MBR

      When I tried reinstalling ROMUpdateUtility.exe, Image version is now blank. Really confused on what to do next. I still get the ERROR 262. Im running windows 7.

      • Install radio 2.15 first. Then MAGLDR.

        • MBR

          Thanks Jayce for the quick reply. I’m a bit scared i might get the wrong file to install. Would you mid sending me the direct link to which Radio I should get. I see a lot in google/forums. Thanks!

      • Hugo

        Hello there! To help answer ur question u need to do the following. Install HSPL 3 which u did already. now u must install custom radio (576 Ram). You can find that update on this site you just need to look. Once u got that downloaded install it, jayce has a guide here as well to help u out. Once the radio is installed then u add MAGLDR 1.11 and once thats there ur ready to add the Android Rom DTF. Jayce has all the guides here. All u have to do is look. if u neeed furthur help look thru the comments they help too! Good luck!!!!

        • MBR

          found one! Leo_RADIO_2.15.50.14

          I’ll try this and see how it goes. thanks!

          • MBR

            Ok, I downloaded the Radio. Followed the video on how to install Radio.

            1. Hold down volume and start button
            2. It went to the tri color screen with correct SPL.
            3. Connected the Phone to computer (Serial —>> USB)
            4. Extracted the files on desktop. Run CustomRUU

            I noticed that after I clicked CustomRUU, the version on my mobile is blank. After clicking next, it reboots but gets stucked at 0% for the quite sometime then gets the ERROR 262 Update Error.

            It’s odd that I have connection problem since I was able to successfully installed HSPL3 the first time.

            Any thoughts? Thanks

        • Hugo

          After u check ur slp make sure u remove ur battery, and restart ur phone normally. Once its loaded up plug in usb cable and connect it in Active Sync mode this is very important, then drag both files from folder to desktop and it shud work just fine. thats how i did it 🙂 Good luck dude!

          • MBR

            Thanks Hugo. But when I did start the phone normally, it did not boot all the way to Active Sync Mode. It stopped at HTC text (waited for about 10 minutes..but did not boot up).

            Should I revert back to original winmo? Problem is i do not know how to either.

  • Albert

    Hi Jayce –

    HELP!!!!!!! Im trying to get WM7 on my HD2. Everything worked fine until i tired to boot from AD NAND. Once I’m in MAGLDR, I select Boot AD NAND and i get an meesage that “NAND yaffs2 boot mount failed”. What do I do!!!!

    Guess it wasn’t smart to try to flash WM7 on the phone i use for business purposes right?

    • You already install WP7, right? That replaced NAND Android. So you got this error.

      • Albert

        Yes I installed WP7, but all the instructions I’ve seen say to boot AD NAND to finalize installation. I can’t get past the MAGDLR menu. Below are instructions i followed:

        Download the Windows Phone 7 ROM from here and extract its contents to your computer.
        Confirmed that you have HARDSPL 2.08 installed as it is an prerequisite before you can install MAGLDR. Also your radio needs to be 2.**.50.**. A recommended radio can be downloaded from here.
        Connect your HTC HD2 to your computer via USB and run ‘ROMUpdateUtility.exe’ from the MAGLDR 1.2 folder which you have extracted earlier.
        Follow on-screen instructions to install MAGLDR on HTC HD2 and reboot your phone. Your phone should boot into MAGLDR now.
        Navigate to the option which says ‘USB Flasher’ using the volume-down key and press the green ‘call’ key to enter it.
        Now run DWI.exe from extracted ROM folder
        Read the information carefully and follow the on-screen instructions to flash HTC HD3 to Windows Phone 7 ROM.
        After the installation is complete, your phone will reboot into MAGDLR again. Use the volume-down button to the Boot AD NAND option and press the green ‘call’ button.
        Your phone will now boot into the newly installed Windows Phone 7. The first boot may take a while. Follow the on-screen instructions to setup your Windows Phone 7 installation for the first time.
        To get Windows live service working, follow this guide.

        • Sorry, I am not sure where you got the instructions. Please consult the owner.

          Or follow my Windows Phone 7 installation guide here –

          • Albert

            Hi Jayce –

            Ok, I followed your instructions. phone rebooted after DWI install was complete. But now it just keeps rebooting. I get the DFT screen, followed by TMO screen, then MAGLDR WPH 1234 Go Go Go screen…then it reboots it self again. Its going crazy!

            • Might be a bad installation, never heard others have this issue before. Try to install it again.

  • Albert

    it was the SD card. pulled it out and WM7 loaded. thanks Jayce!

  • kev

    hi man, is radio 2.12 compatible to run MAGLDR? thanks.

    Jayce, i just install android to my hd2 today , everything look find until i notice my bluetooth not working n the auto-rotate screen not working too . any solution for me ? thanks

    • Might be ROM issue. Try other ROM see.

  • MBR

    Hi Jayce, I’ve been using my HD2 with NAND for 3 weeks now and everything is working so far (wifi, etc.). I downloaded a couple of games and some wallpaper apps via wifi connection. However, the next day, I connected successfully to my wifi but this time could not load Market or browse the internet using different internet browsers. I am definite that my wifi signl is working as I am able to browse on my desktop. Also, it says on my hd2 notification bar that I am connected to wifi (excellent signal).

    So I thought the apps I downloaded from Market caused the connection issue, so I uninstalled them, but still the problem exist.

    Any suggestion what i should do next? Thanks!

    • Is your PC able to connect to Internet using the same Wi-Fi?

  • slung

    how can i change it back to the original rom ( wm6.5 ) ?

  • Joe

    come on jayce help me my phone need ur help.

    • As I told you before… Perform step 1 to 4. Connect USB cable. Then continue step 10 onward.

  • Joe

    Ok jayce thank. Now I will try to update the driver first.

  • Nurhtc

    Hello Jayce
    My Radio is Is that why I am always stuck at the HTC boot screen.


    • I think so because MAGLDR requires radio that support 576MB. Radio 2.06 does not.

      • Nurhtc

        Thanks for your site I am already installing

        I will let u know when it is a success.

      • Shahroon

        hello there, i have the same problem i guess, i have flashed my hd2 with magldr v 1.1.3 from this site .. the update was successful but when the phone rebooted, it stucked on the white htc screen, please help me out here, dont know much about htcs, so messed up the phone , please can you guide me to fix this ??

        • Hi Shahroon, try to install radio 2.15 then.

          • Shahroon

            the problem is i cant even turn my phone off, its just stuck, it doesnt even connect to the pc. i tried to shut it down by pressing the power off button while holding down the volume down button, but it doesnt go anywhere other than the stucked white htc screen. only way i shut my phone off is by pulling the battery out from the phone. how can i install anything into it when i cant even get out from this white screen?? please guide me, my phone isnt under warranty, so m pretty much screwed

            • Hi Shahroon, please refer to How to Install Custom Radio ROM on HTC HD2? (Video) guide.

              • Schudde

                Hi Jayce,

                I have the same problem as Shahroon. After installing the DFT MAGLDR Bootloader, the phone reboots and all I see is the white HTC screen (green letters). Nothing happens after and all I can do is take the battery out to shut down the phone. How can I install an other Radio ROM if my phone doesn’t start up? I can’t get into Windows Mobile anymore to set up an Active Sync connection.

                Please help! Thanks in advance!

  • Nicole

    Jayce, every time i try to download MAGLDR it always saves into my computer as a iTunes file. is there anyway to change this?

    • Change the RAR file type to be opened by other program like 7-Zip.

    Jayce, right after I do this I get a quick screen with a red code line that says something about a bad kernel. I’m thinking this is keeping me from finishing the flashing process successfully. Any ideas?

  • Bob

    Why is there no English US option?

  • Lasse

    Magdlr won’t open, it just freezes on the green HTC logo..
    I have SPL-1.66HSPL XE
    CotullaHSPL 0x30

    Can you help me?

    • Lasse


    • I did not use SPL-1.66HSPL before. Maybe you can try HSPL3 ~ SPL-2.08.HSPL. It works for me.

      • Lasse

        Thx, it worked now..

  • Filip

    Hi Jayce, can I use MAGLDR v.1.12??

    • Filip

      Or can u help me with instalation nand android??? I had wp 6.5, now I have wp7 and i want android. Have to I go back to wp6.5 and than instal android?? Thx

    • Yes, you can use MAGLDR v1.12. Just continue to install NAND Android will do. ~

      • Filip

        Ok, I tried it and when I click on 5. USB flasher mode ( 5. because of v.1.12) and connect USB cable and start DAF, after two clicks on next I have to wait for connection, but after some time it says this:
        Error happen
        Read below for more information

        Error Description: USB init failed
        Info: .\RSPL\RSPL.cpp (723)

        Can you help me?

        • Hmm… Are you using the PC like you did WP7 installation? You should not get this error. Or try to right click DAF and run as administrator.

          • Filip

            Yes I am using the same computer, i dont understand whats happen. I have windows XP and when I run as administrator nothing happen, not even the table. When I wil reset the phone? can it hepl? I think in bootloader.

  • Rajesh


    I am using HD2 in India and have got spl 3.03 with ROM 3.14.
    I could not falsh ROM using MGLDR as probably I need to downgrade rom to 2.08.
    I did attempted stack rom but they were not compatable.
    Need link so that I can get downgrade my rom to 2.08 please.


    • Hmm… You can install India stock HTC HD2 ROM only. But I cannot find it at India HTC website. Do you want to install Android or WP7?

      • rajesh

        I want to install Android on phone, I have on SD but they are not efficient..
        Pls help
        God bless you


        • Sorry, if you can’t install other country HTC HD2 ROM, I can’t help much. Need to wait for new HSPL for SPL-3.03.

          • Rajesh

            Today I installed HSPL4 and could get hspl 2.08 successfully
            but when installed mgldr1.1….I am stuck at black screen (after selecting option 4 USB Flasher)
            It is saying Android flasher mode
            wait usb…usb

            and not moving ahead….please help

            • Which step did you fail to continue?

              • Rajesh

                1. Installed HSPL4 and downgraded spl 3.03 to HSPl 2.08
                2. Saved MGLDR1.1 on desktop (extracted file)
                3. Runutlity.exe file to flash ROM (probably this is where I did mistake, because on white screen below green HTC logo the ROM was reading 3.14 still, and I flashed my rom with mgldr 1.1)
                4. Tried step to flash ROM (option4) but everytime got stuck with black screen saying Android falsher mode
                wait USB…USB.

                Now phone is not getting active syncwith PC as PC is not identifying mobile.
                and when trying to run original rom in Red, Blue, green, white screen
                the error message is
                CRTICAL Error
                Flow: 00000001
                Error code: 00000002
                Description: USB connection failed

                pls help….

                • Try to use another USB port see. Or try other PC.

  • Hey Jayce,

    I have a problem with installing MAGDLR 1.11 on my phone. If I want to instal it, it stays on 0% and after a while I get an error (ERROR 262). My radioversion is and my ROM version is 3.14 and my SPL version is 3.03.0000 (something like that) please help, I want android on this phone!!

    • You need to have HSPL3 ~ SPL-2.08.HSPL in order to install MAGLDR.

  • Where can I do that? It doesn’t work from the HTC website.

    • Just follow my guides in the post.

  • Hey Jayce,

    I just installed the MAGLDR on my phone, and the installation went well. However. At the end of the installation I should see the black screen, BUT that didn’t came. It stopt on the HTC screen. Now my phone doesn’t get past that screen anymore!! Please help!

    • I fixed it already!! thnx dude:) You are doing great work here;)

  • Bryson

    So if I want to install android on my HD2 are the following links posted above all I need. Im running ROM 2.13

  • ivan

    hi, was wondering if magldr112 would work or it has to be magldr111. can you pls help?

    • MAGLDR v1.12 will be fine.

      • ivan

        hey thanks a lot…one more thing im concerned with. You said open the folder by right clicking and using zip 7 right? my computer does not have that option. is that something to do with windows 7? or would it work either way? thanks again, thanks for the help im almost there : )

        • You can use any unzip program to unzip it. I use 7-Zip which is free and can be downloaded at 🙂

          • ivan

            hey thanks for that info it helped…so i got the hspl on my phone, but when i tried to install the windows 7, i cannot open the dft leo70 with the 7 zip like you said…it tells me that is not a valid archive…can you help me ? what can i do ? thanks agian for your help and time

            • You should be able to unzip like the video guide. If cannot, suspect your downloaded zip file is corrupted. Try to download it again.

              • ivan

                hey i did download the file again and it worked…but now i have another issue hopefully u can guide me thru….i did all the steps and everything went thru but at the last step were the blue letters come up at the end an your supposed to get the 1234 and hold the volume buttons, mine didnt do that it went just to the boot menu and im stuck here it wont do anything or i cant go anywhere pls help.. thanks in advance..

                • Sorry, I did not get you. Which step did you fail to continue? Give me the video post, so that I can understand better. Thanks.

  • ivan

    hey one more thing that might help you understand my problem….i did two downloads of the dft leo, i first started using the magldr 111 but it didnt have one of the items required in the steps. so i did the download of magdlr 112 and i finished the process with that, everything when well it just did reboot with dft and windows 7 like on your tutorial…i hope you can assist me thanks again

  • ivan

    welll you know how at the end you get a message saying “congratualions installation succesfully been completed”, then the phone restarts on its own on it goes to the boot menu and blue letters saying “booting wph” comes up but the phone never starts to windows 7 like it does on your tutorial im just stuck on the boot menu, i cant do anything ive tried several times but dont work.

    • Do you have all the requirements like HSPL3, radio v2.15 like mine?

  • ivan

    i did the hspl3 but i didnt do the radio upgrade, but i think my phone already had that. or do i still needed to do that? im in the USA and have Tmobile. another thing i noticed is that usb flasher on my phone is option 4. thats not a problem is it?

    • T-Mobile HD2 should have the correct radio ROM already. By the way, WP7 needs MAGLDR v1.12 or above.

  • ivan

    yea it did, so i didnt do that step…ok so magldr v1.12, do i just start from that step or what should i do? im stuck in the boot menu

    • Just follow the WP7 video guide to install.

  • ivan

    yea but im stuck on that boot menu screen…should i just try it like that? i did everythin like your video, but at the end i didnt get the 1234 go go go…it just went to the boot menu again…ill go ahead and try again thanks

    • Try to select ‘Boot WPH’.

      • ivan

        i dont have that option…

        • Power on your phone and don’t let go the power button. It will load into MAGLDR boot loader.

  • slung

    Jayce, did u ever try change it back to wm6.5?
    because when i try to change it back it always come out with
    check the following
    1) pda is connected to the usb cradle/cable
    2)the usb cradle/cable is connected to the pc .

    everything is connected already but it always ask me to check the cable.
    my cable is fine too , i use it to copy photo n mp3.

  • Janeel

    How do I get 7 zip on my device?

  • lee

    i have tried everything.installed hspl no problem. installed radio but everyone i try still says 512 in hardware.loaded madldr 1.12 and 1.13 but when boots up says kernel failure on htchd2.tried installing rom through flasher but nothing. can anyone help or will i have to sell and buy a windows mobile 7

    • Slow down. Can you tell me one by one what did you do? And which part did you fail to continue?

      • lee

        have tried custom rom and different rom to the vodafone 3.14 and still no different.loads it all and when magldr boots up with white writing it then says in red kernel failure but still allows me to go to index.tried no5 usb flasher and ran win 7 rom on pc but all i get is error message.2,08 hspl on phone as is radio.its when the magldr is put on.

        • Which OS do you want to install? WP7 or Android?

          What is the red kernel failure to load? I suspect that you did not install OS properly or did not set the auto boot correctly.

          • lee

            sorry what d you mean about auto boot

            • The boot that MAGLDR is trying that load ~ which you have the red kernel failure.

  • lee

    is it meant to change rom value in hardware screen on phone as mine always sats 512

    • Which radio version do you have now?

      • lee

        used your radio as was informed that the radio with firmware 3.14 was not usable to do the upgrade.waant to install wp7

  • lee

    thaks for responding hope to hear from you soon

  • lee

    tried again downloaded 1.66 and then put on radio as per your video. installed magldr again and went to flasher. however when i get to installing on leo rom it just says bootloader error.this is the same whether usb lead is plugged in or not ???

  • lee

    thanks for your efforts but i think its alost cause.tried with andrid but still no good.just cannot see what i’m doing wrong

  • lee

    this is the mesage i get
    An error has occurred
    Read below for more information

    Error Description: USB init failed
    Info: .\RSPL\RSPL.cpp (1198)

    Error Description: EnterBootloader missing
    Info: .\RSPL\BootLoader.cpp (176)

    • These errors might caused by incorrect unzip of the ROM and did not run ROMUpdateUtility as administrator.

      • lee

        i’ve even changed the winzip to 7zip.all i get is usb error.think i’ll sell it with windows 6.5 and buy windows 7

  • Jay

    hello jaycy

    I tried to install MAGLDR and now my phone has locked up and won’t go past the HTC start screen
    hspl 4 installed.
    can you please tell me what’s the problem?


    • Which did you install ~ SPL-2.08.HSPL or SPL-3.03.HSPL?

  • YOU ARE THE MAN!!! I just installed the near stock NAND Android ROM and it’s looking great so far. One side effect I hadn’t anticipated on is the fact that the accelerometer gets stuck when you calibrate it. Luckily, I still had the PC on so I simply reflashed the ROM…problem solved!

    I can’t wait to try out your Ultimate Android ROM once I get used to the stock Desire ROM.

    Seriously, you should consider setting up a donations link; I can’t even imagine the countless hours or months of code that you and other talented ROM chefs endure just to create Android ROMS for dissapointed users of WINMO 6.5.

    I’ll keep you posted if I find any more “side effects” lol.

  • Jay

    I installed 3.03 hspl

    • MAGLDR does not work on SPL-3.03.HSPL. You need to install SPL-2.08.HSPL. Run HSPL4 installer again and install SPL-3.03.HSPL.

      • Jay

        Thanks man
        but I cant understand you said MAGLDR doesnt work with spl-3.03 HSPL I need to install spl-2.08.HSPL and run HSPL4 installer again and install spl-3.03.HSPL.
        I think youmean spl-2.08 HSPL is that so?

        • Yes, install SPL-2.08.HSPL.

          • Jay

            thanks a lot Jauce. I installed nand android on my hd2 with ur help.


  • lee

    will install hspl4 correct my error.tried with administrator and message i get is usb failed

  • lee

    this is what i’ve done
    1) installed vodafone 3.14
    2)installed hspl3 making sure i have 2.08hspl loaded
    3) installed different radio version but still .50 type
    4) installed magldr 1.13.once installed held down power button and got main menu.went to option 5 usb flasher.
    5) ran dwi in adminstator but get usb error.

    will installing hspl4 using 2.08 make any difference

    • Are you using Windows XP?

  • lee

    no windows 7

    • Hmm… HSPL4 won’t help much. It is still the same SPL-2.08.HSPL. Maybe you can try out 2.15 radio see.

  • lee

    already tried out radio 2.15 50.14 and still no there a setting on the htc hd2 phone or on windows 7 as i’m completely baffled.get same message

    • Weird, you should not get USB issue since you can flash 2.15 radio. I really suspect your downloaded WP7 ROM zip file is corrupted. Try to download it then try it again.

  • lee

    i could believe that but it happens if i’m trying install android rom as well

  • lee

    yesterday i tried again this time with a completely different wp7 rom but still the same happens

  • lee

    i’ve come to conclusion that it impossible on my device and i do not know why. will now sell my hd2 and get hd7 instead. thank you for taking the time to try and help me

  • Jonathan

    hey men… lets say that i have MAGLDR 1.10 with ANDROID, but i want to update it to MAGLDR 1.13…. how can i do that???

    • Just install it like the way you installed MAGLDR v1.1.

      • Surya Nanggala

        if I installed 1.13 over 1.11 version, is my nand android will be formated?

  • monstro171

    Mr Ooi,

    I made a mistake… I installed DFT MAGLDR Bootloader before install radio ROM 2.15…
    During MAGLDR installation I had radio ROM 1.66
    Now the phone got stuck at HTC bright screen.
    Is there anyway I can revert/fix the wrong installation?
    I already tried to hard reset but didn’t work.

    Thank you,


  • monstro171

    Mr Ooi,

    I already have Ultimate Droid 3.3 installed and working well.
    I migrated from WM 6.5 and would like to know if there is anyway to sync or at least copy my MS Outlook with Android.


    THANK YOU!!!


  • monstro171

    I am glad today was a day off….

    I found this
    Did you know about it?

    So far, it transferred all my outlook contacts and calendar to android.

    Thanks again!


    • Thanks for the new info. Never heard of it before. 🙂

  • Jay

    hello mat,

    after install MAGLDR it restart until htc logo ans nothing happend?
    rom versie: artemis
    can you tell me what the problem is?


    • Radio version does not support MAGLDR. Please use radio 2.15.

  • Jay

    I installed also radio 2.15 but the same problem.


    • What is the OS that MAGLDR trying to load? NAND Android or SD Android? By the way, did you continue to install NAND Android?

  • Jay

    Nand android
    I wanted to install nand android and I couldn’t install magldr than so I installed SD android en it works very goed but I want nand android.


    • Err…I am a little blur now. You already have MAGLDR installed or not?

  • Jay

    after installing MAGLDR it restart until logo HTC and nothing happend.
    I cannot install NAND android without MAGLDR
    I tried to install MAGLDR 3 times with radio 2.15 but the same problem restart until logo HTC.
    so I installed sd android and it works but nand androis failed
    I hope you can follow me


    • Power on your phone and don’t let go power button. MAGLDR should be loaded then. Let me know the result. Thanks.

  • somethingelsefl

    Perfect steps and description as always…worked like a dream!

  • Ellis

    ROM UPDATE UTILITY will not open. It runs as admin and i click yes and then nothing happens. Help please!!

  • John Robinson

    Hey jayce, ive already installed MAGLDR and gone through all the prerequisities and already have android froyo but i cannot get to the MAGDLR menu?? :S

    • Which step are you at now?

      • John Robinson

        I have android 2.2 installed already but its ok now i just held the power button and it came up, thanks jayce!! 😀

  • VS

    Hi Jayce

    I got WP7 installed (using MAGLDR) on my HD2. Not too happy – want to switch back to WM6.5.

    I have seen you SD card revival guide – somehow not working for me.

    Is it not possible to (without SD card in the phone) just use MAGLDR USB flasher mode to flash it with HD2 WM6.5 ROM?


    • Yes, you can install Windows Mobile through RUU with USB cable. But HSPL will be there.

  • Craig

    Hey, I have tried to load magdlr and now all i get is the white screen with the green logo and nothing else on it,

    I can also get into the red green and blue screen,

    I have tried holding down the power button but get nothing,

    I followed all the steps to the magdlr except the radio as i already had 2.15!

    Can you help?

    • Craig

      ROM: 3.14.405.0 (04666) WWE
      Radio Ver:
      SPL: 3.03

      thats the spec of what my phone was before
      I installed ythe hspl 4

      • Did you install SPL-2.08.HSPL or SPL-3.03.HSPL with HSPL4?

        • Boiky

          Hi Jayce

          I got the same problem.

          Prior to MAGLDR installation I have installed the prerequisites:
          * HardSPL 2.08
          * Radio

          There is a thread also here:

          but seems to be no solution.

          Could you please help?

          • I am also don’t know what went wrong if you had installed SPL-2.08.HSPL and radio 2.15. Maybe you can try to reinstall Windows Mobile back. Then try again.

            • Boiky

              Wow! Got MAGLDR installed finally… after several cycles of different installations.
              Here is what I found:
              My original SPL was 3.00-0000, so previously I tried installing 3.00-HSPL. That didn’t work.
              Now I installed exactly 2.08-HSPL version and here we go – I see MAGLDR menu now!
              Good luck everyone! I hope this will help others with the same problem. I think we all need to read carefully (about 2.08) )))

  • christineallison

    My sister stupidly attempted to put android on her HD2, so when she turns it on all that shows is the boot menu aMAGDLR boot menu.

    Which has the following..

    1. Boot WPH
    2. Boot AD SD
    3. Boot AD NAND
    4. USB MassSTG
    5. USB Flasher
    6. USB TTY
    7. AD Hardreset
    8. AD Recovery
    9. Tetris (… idk why this is on there?)
    10. Services
    11. Reset
    12. PowerDown

    I’ve messed around with it a little, just to get familiar… I’ve had to toggle down to #4 USB MassSTG in order for my PC to reecognize it. I’ve attempted to try and install aMAGDLR v1.13 on the phone myself but there’s an error in the process. During the ROM Utility Update it says there is an error in the connection and to check if the phone is connected to the USB cable/cradle (which it is) OR check if the USB cable/cradle is connected to the PC (which it is…)… My guess is that I can not establish a ActiveSync because the phone no longer has Windows. I TRIEEEEDDDDD to install aMAGDLR on the phone following your exact steps… I’m lost and confused! help!

    • Why do you want to install MAGLDR again since you already have installed it? Just continue to install Android will do…

  • Josh

    I’m not sure if this is the correct forum for this, but I really really need help fixing my flashed hd2… Just recently my phone has been going crazy, answering calls and trying to make calls by itself, I never drop the phone, this just happened on its own… does anyone know a fix? Please help me, I have no insurance and this phone is my life line…

    • Are you using Windows Mobile or Android on your HD2 right now?

      • Josh

        I’m using android

        • Try to reinstall Android ROM again in this case.

  • Jason

    hello, i’ve been using android on my htc hd2 since last year after finding out about your website and i’ve been loving it. however, recently, i downloaded the wrong type of rom(CLK) and installed it, hence removing my magldr. is there anyway i can get magldr back?

    • Jason

      AH, i figured it out. i just re-flashed magldr and it worked! heheh. just wanna say thanks for introducing android for htc hd2 for me. 🙂

      • Glad to know that you solved it. 😀

  • chitresh

    than you so much for your help,, please i request you to help understand the process to uninstall MAGDLR and please tell me how do i go back to my default win 6.5…thank u

  • Ferry

    Hello Jayce,

    I did everything that had to be done to install Android on my HD2. I did HSPL 2.08 and i installed the new radio (with Custom_RUU). Now i did MAGLDR and it went quit well till it was finished after 100% loading. After that the white HTC screen turnsup (on my phone) again and stays there. Even after resetting it, it got stuck on this screen! I doen’t react on anything…
    PLEASE help me!!

  • Ferry

    I did some extra reading on XDA- develepers. I think a maybe didn’t got the right radio.. I installed it from this site: Because the people who are having this kind of problem often got the wrong version of the radio… I followed the instructions on: because i’m a noob, but really wanted Android on my phone!! 🙂 But how do i change this radio? Because my phone won’t connect to the pc anymore and doesn’t react on any of my efforts!

    Every suggestion or idea is welcome!!
    Please help!!!

    • Just continue to install NAND Android will do. Follow my guide here…

  • ZAIN

    what will i have to do to boot back to windows 6.5? will the android install on sd card or phone?

    • No, you can’t. MAGLDR will remove Windows Mobile. And NAND Android will be installed in phone memory.

  • Harthill72

    Hi Jayce,

    I’m also getting a hang on the white HTC screen. I installed the 2.15 radio, then MADLDR but it just hangs.

    I tried re-installing the radio, then MAGLDR again, but it still hangs on reboot and I can’t get the MAGLDR screen up by holding the power button.

    What should I try next?

    • Harthill72

      It’s ok, I think I’ve installed the wrong HSPL, I’ll try it and get back if I’m still having problems.

      • Harthill72


        For noobs with similar problems reading this, make sure you have installed 2.08 HSPL (not 3.03 like I did)

  • Chandu

    I really enjoy your site. I have one question, I have flashed my T-Mos HD2 with Android on the NAND, now how do I update my rom without formatting the phone. I have used MAGLDR and not CLK. The reason I want to update is that the ROM version has been updated and is more stable. Please advice, thanks in advance.

  • denny

    ROMUpdateUtility will not open?

    • What is the error message? If still cannot, try on other PC see.

      • denny

        no error message, when i click run nothing happens

    Dear Jayce,
    Thanks for the great tutorials. I followed your instructions step by step on my htc hd2 & after final installation of rebooted the mobile.. the Boot stage appears.. at the end Go Go Go & then HTC on the black background appears… & just stays for ever.. it does not change or come to the configuration screen of andriod.. i reinstalled again the Jaws.. but did not work.. by the way is it necessary to use a blank SD card or it is ok if it has some other folders etc ? please advise dear as currently my phone is totally stucke..

  • bob

    Can you use this MAGLDR with HSPL4? Or should i use a different one? Because now my phone is stuck at the HTC screen…

    • Yes, but you must select SPL-2.08.HSPL. And use correct radio ROM.

      • bob

        thanks! you are great! Android works better than perfect. Thank you so very much!

  • James

    I have installed magldr and have done the rom appropriately but i keep getting a “no boot source” this is the 3rd hd2 i’ve flashed and the first one to have these problems. Is there a solution to this? sorry if this is a repeat.

  • Hi Joice

    Greetings from Madrid. I’m new with this smartphones games and enjoing a lot . I choose HTC HD2 after miss one iPhone. Ejoyed the “HTC sense” stuff at work and at home. I did install MAGLDR and WM7 is working and Android is on his own way.
    I like to ask a simple question. May I?. is there some way to have again WM 6.5 on my HTT HD2?.

    Thanks anyway

  • tafa

    hi jayce,

    I have following your steps though its quiet tricky for me, since then I have install hspl 4, then install radio, but on the next step for installing MAGLR v.1.13 there is problem like here I just copy from the DFT: “Readme.txt for this release is missing.” then I just to try forward and I found a statement like this:

    An error has occurred
    Read below for more information

    Error Description: Config load failed.
    Info: .\RSPL\RSPL.cpp (725)

    Error Description: CONFIG: can’t open config file
    Info: .\RSPL\RSPL.cpp (304)

    could you give me an idea? Readme.txt for this release is missing, where it is could be found??

    Second points, On installing Radio ROm I do not see and HTC logo upper the horizontal line that showing percentage, moreover on reboot too I do not see any notify that indicate any information on the left down while the white-whole screen with logo appear, rather almost it shows a battery. is there any problems??? could you explain me. many thanks Joice.

  • Rod

    Hi Jayce,

    I have got a HTC HD2 phone with Windows Mobile 6.5 and I wanted to give it a try to you tutorial in here.

    So, downloaded the MAGLDR113 (which I think is the latest one)
    and downloaded radio 2.15… and HSPL.

    After a while I decided to start installing everything, but installed the MAGLDR113 before anything else (basically, jumped to step 11 and at the end, when the phone restarted got stuck on the white screen with HTC logo on it (without displaying any other details).

    Is it possible to recover the phone or getting it to boot so I could continue installing the image? Or did I totally screw the phone?

    Thanks in advance

  • Dwight

    Hey Jayce. I have a question… I bought a hard bricked hd2 for $20… it was in perfect condition. Then I sent it to MobileTechVideos for JTAG service. I also payed extra so he can do the MAGLDR and android nand. etc. Now I just want to try WP7 and every ROM page I visit says I need Radio “ (576mb)” something like that. I have now I don’t know if I can install WP7.. so please respond. I need help. I don’t know how to update the Radio. I am scared to update the RADIO due to it being possible, that it can brick my device… Thanks, if you you can help me out..please do

    by the way I’m not a noob at flashing android roms though… Just WP7

    • I did not try to install WP7 on radio 2.08 but it should support 576MB RAM.

      • Dwight

        THANKS for repling, every whereelse I went told me to jstnsearch the forums.. Which i have like 50 times..So do you think you can test it? If not.. if i try ,and the radio doent work.. What would happen? wouldit brick my phone or just go to magldr and notboot wp7 , can i just go bacck to androidif i wanted to ifit doesnt work_? ??

        • Sorry, I cannot test it for you as my HTC HD2 is not with me right now.
          If WP7 cannot work, it just won’t boot. You should be able to load MAGLDR then install Android back.

          • Dwight

            Okay cool thanks. Wait so the boot of wp7 will fail right and that fomes after magldr right. So it doest boot stright into wp7 it goes through mgldr regardless right. Sorry about all the misplellings im still getting used to touchtyping on my tablet

            • It will load WP7 directly even fail to boot into it. But you can load MAGLDR manually. Just power on your phone while holding power button (don’t let go). It will load into MAGLDR.

  • Taz

    How can i update MAGLDR v1.11 to MAGLDR v1.13 on HTC HD2? I want to upgrade from NAND 2.2 to ICE CREAM 4.0 but it wouldnt let me without upgrading to v1.13

      • Taz

        I followed the link you gave me but when i partitioned it, its says “partion fail” and it will not boot no more and it still have the same MAGLDR v1.11 on it. So i tried and do the USB flash and install the NAND ROM and how is working again but i want to know how to upgrade the MAGDLR to v1.3 so that i can try iinstalling the ICE CREAM 4.0

        • Sorry Taz, I have no further idea since the guide did not help.

  • Piere

    Hello Jayce,

    After I installed MAGLDR 1.13 I get the red error message ‘sd kernel open failed’. I saw the same message in your video. I still can go on, but doesn’t this error cause any problems?

    I had Coredroid v3.7 installed for some time on my HD2, but I had a lot of problems, the phone hangs at different moments (while browsing, typing, swyping, playing etc.) I then have to take out the battery and start again. I thought maybe this error was the cause of it, so I retried installing but everytime the sime error (‘sd kernel open failed’). Many thanx in advance for your answer.

    • Hi Piere, are you using NAND or SD based Android?

      • Piere

        Hi Jayce, I am using a NAND based Android.

        • Then it has nothing to do with SD Kernel open failed issue.

  • Dillen

    Jayce, my phone is stuck on the HTC home screen…nothing is happening. What do I do? Thanks.

    • Hi Dillen, may I know what had you done until you got this issue?

  • ahmed gamal

  • Athilio

    Hi Jayce, I am trying to install Android(Android ROM for HTC HD2. TyphooN CyanogenMod 7 or Gingerbread, whatever works…) on my HC HD2 (6.5 windows). I install(“download”) on to my phone the MAGLDR but when I restart it(Keep’n Holding down the on button…)it shows the Tmobil’s STICK TOGETER in pink over a white screen.

    I’ve try to reboot several times, re-installing MAGLDR but the white TMobil screen is always there, keeping it from reboot…..

    Do you have any idea why??? By the way, my SPL-3.03.HSPL XE, Thanks for your time and help,


    • Hi Athilio, you need SPL-2.08.HSPL.

  • Athilio

    Thanks for your prompt response.
    I think, this time, I really did it …..
    I was (triying to) install back the SPL-2.08.HSPL rom and it wouldn’t accept it, so I tried recovery v-1.3, nothing; recovery raw and apparently nothing happened, I still have it on the green, red and blue screen showing the SPL-3.03 BUT NOW IT SHOWS AS “SPL-3.03.0000 XE”, also the Windows XP, on my desktop and the Microsoft Activesyncis are not reading the phone anymore when I connect(USB) it …
    Now, when I try to open the phone(turn it on…) to make phone calls or what ever…it is FROZEN on the opening screen(TMobil’s Pink on white “STICK TOGETER”…), and if I try install MAGLDR, DAF, even the old “updated” TMobil HD2 MR SOFTWARE 3.14.531.1, it will start run in the desktop but it will crash when installing it into the phone…
    Like I was saying: I really did IT this time!
    Do you possibly know what I did wrong, or better yet, how can I fix my mess(or who can???)…?
    Once again, THANKS for your time and help


    • Not sure what did you do wrong. Try to install SPL-2.08.HSPL again to use Android.

  • Jan

    Hello Jayce,

    My current rom is so when i try to update de instalation kills and my phone reboots….

    I had previously Android 3.2.4 on the phone and had some inssues after a wile, reinstalled stock rom win6.5 and now i want to ga back on android

    Please help..

    • Hi Jan, do you have SPL-2.08.HSPL now?

    • Jan

      I installed hspl4 becouse hspl3 did not work (it came from win6.5-vodafone ROM in Holland) And when i start with vol-down i see in the red/green/blue/white screen the following:
      PB81100 SS-BC
      SPL-2.08.HSPL 8G XE
      CotullaHSPL 0x50

      • Continue with radio 2.15 installation. Then install MAGLDR.

        • Jan

          But when i start i have already under in the startupscreen by the white screen with grren htc-logo, but, i will try!

  • Chris

    Execute ROMUpdateUtility.
    Click ‘Yes’ if User Access Control prompt up.
    After that i dont have to any more prompts..
    What do i do?????????

  • ear

    My htc only displays bootscreen since ive installed magdlr. I can access to blue green red screen for a very short time (0.25sec) but it asks me to restore manufacturer’s settings. If
    i press yes it’s successful and ask me to reboot and i start again from the beginning.
    Also the usb connection seems not working. Same for the power supply.

    SPL-3.03 + magdlr = phone bricking?

    i misunderstood about 3.03 because a lot of ppl tried it and HSPL3 seems like HSPL3.03…
    Ty for answer. Hope good news. Best regards

    • Yes, you can’t use SPL-3.03 with MAGLDR. Try to install SPL-2.08.HSPL.
