How to install Windows Phone 7 on HTC HD2? (Video)

608

HTC HD2 is going to be phone of the year 2011 again. It came with Windows Mobile 6.5 in year 2009 and running Android 2.2 Froyo on SD card on year 2010. Just got NAND Android treatment last month. And here come Windows Phone 7 on HTC HD2. Who dare to say that 5 buttons’ HTC HD2 cannot support Windows Phone 7 now?

Prerequisites

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

Note – by installing MAGLDR, you cannot boot into Windows Mobile 6.5 anymore. And do backup your SD card data. Windows Phone 7 will create 2 partitions on SD card during installation. 200MB will be left for PC access, the rest for Windows Phone 7. 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). Are you ready to turn your HTC HD2 into HTC HD7? Okay, let’s get started…

Step by Step Guide

  1. Press volume down button (don’t let go) and power on your phone.
  2. It will load into bootloader.
  3. You should get ‘Red, Green, Blue and White’ screen with SPL-2.08.HSPL.
  4. Connect USB cable from PC to phone.
  5. Open DFT_LEO70_RELEASE.rar with 7-Zip.
  6. Copy LEO70_ROM, MAGLDR112 folders and readme.txt to desktop.
  7. Enter MAGLDR112 folder.
  8. Right click on ROMUpdateUtility and select ‘Run as administrator’.
  9. Click ‘Yes’ if User Access Control prompt up.
  10. Follow onscreen instructions to install.
  11. Phone will be rebooted after installation finished.
  12. Disconnect USB cable from phone.
  13. Then hold power button and don’t let go.
  14. DFT MAGLDR Bootloader will be loaded.
  15. Use volume down button to go down to 5. USB Flasher.
  16. Then press call button to load USB Flasher mode.
  17. Connect USB cable from PC to phone.
  18. At PC, Enter LEO70_ROM folder.
  19. Right click on DWI and select ‘Run as administrator’.
  20. Click ‘Yes’ if User Access Control prompt up.
  21. Follow onscreen instructions to install.
  22. Disconnect USB cable from phone after installation finished.
  23. Follow onscreen instructions to setup Windows Phone 7 settings.
  24. That’s all.

    hello jayce,
    After installing windows7, can we install android on sd card.

  • sachin

    what I mean is that can we use windows 7 & android on the same time just like we use windows 6.5 while booting & then by launching android by the android launcher.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      I did not try Android on SD card yet. Previous MAGLDR 1.11 cannot work, not sure v1.12 can or not…

      • http://none chu kang

        have you try the performance? is it better then android?
        or still slow like 6.5?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Better than Windows Mobile 6.5. But not yet Android level. Still have some ‘hang’s from time to time. :P

          • Janusz

            I just activated my HD2 with WM7 and Live services. It works great, no lag or any other problem. Everything works like a charm, much better than lates Froyo I had on this phone installed previously. I think it is very important what micro card you are using. It must be class 10 otherwise you will experience some slow down glitches.

            • rajesh

              hi,
              i would like to install windows 7 on my htc hd2 which has android 2.2 can you please send me link where i can download
              thank you
              josephraj

      • sachin

        I want to know that whether the windows 7 rom will be installed on the internal memory of the rom just like custom energy cookie rom or on the sd card just like the android 2.2 froyo on sd card of htc hd2.

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Internal NAND memory.

          • sachin

            That means we can install android on sd card and can run both windows 7 while booting & android after booting windows 7 by android launcher right.

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              Nope. Need to select Android SD boot at MAGLDR (if it is working).

            • sachin

              You say that windows 7 will be installed in the internal nand memory then why it use sd card memory for partition.
              Is this means that if we try to boot removing the sd card then it will boot or not.
              Please help as I am fully confused as I don’t have any knowledge about such installations.

              • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                Windows Phone 7 use up most of the SD card space (200MB left). You need to use another SD card for Android.

      • rajesh

        Hello Jaycee.

  • johan

    The phone stop at go go go! Wat is the problem???

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Which step did you do and reach?

      • andrew diaz

        my fone goes to dft right after go go go please help

  • johan

    It reboots after I installed win7 and than it stops at go go!

  • JB

    Is this the version that does not allow Windows Live connections?

    I have read a few reviews and it looks as though pretty much all functionality is available.

    If I may ask, before I install the OS, what features of Windows Phone 7 are not available in this NAND release? In other words, what relies on a Windows Live connection and therefore will not work?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      No, unless you call Microsoft / HTC to get the activation code.

  • cikgujeraul

    can u get the activation code for us? just for trying it. :)

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Haha… I also had problem to get activation code from Microsoft Malaysia. They asked me to get from HTC.

      • cikgujeraul

        hahahaha…so do i. Hoping that there’s solution coming soon. As for now, getting back to android. :)

    • MySchizoBuddy

      So this requires an activation code

  • Zachary

    How about a little credit for the news? Haha jk but I got it working perfectly love it except for the marketplace but I play Xbox alot so its not so bad and also the interface is incredible.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Haha… I found out before you sent news over. Thanks anyway… :)

  • david

    hi jayce, i have read in the video that at the time of first booting ,it formats the sd card and utilizes it’s memory.
    let me know what if i remove the sd card and insert another sd card and reboot will it boot or not .
    else will it show the memory of the second sd card.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Sorry, I don’t have another extra SD card to test…

  • david

    above u said that we need to use another sd card for the android why is it so.
    why can’t we use the same sd card for the android just like we use in windows 6.5

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      “Windows Phone 7 will create 2 partitions on SD card during installation. 200MB will be left for PC access, the rest for Windows Phone 7.” You left almost nothing for Android…

      • cikgujeraul

        just put the sd card to any phone eg Nokia and format it……..it will be back like before.

        • Tanishq

          but will the windows 7 work normally ??

  • ramjit

    I want to know if load i windows 7,if i would be able to load back the android nand rom? oh and great work i luv it……

    • Zachary

      well, as discussed before, you wont be able to but, you can make a backup (and should because it part.s and erases everything) or just have a seprate sd card for android but as of right now, no you cant dual or tri boot os’s yet.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Yes, just install Android back will do (of course, WP7 is replaced then). ClockworkMod Recovery will help make your life easier.

  • DeaconFrost

    Is it possible to sign in to Xbox live somehow?

  • DeaconFrost

    But the activation code is still required, right?

    • Zachary

      Yes it is but when u call Microsoft make sure say u have the hd7

      • DeaconFrost

        Okay, thanks a lot!

    Dear Jayce,

    Will all the apps in windows market place that work in win 6.5 work in Win 7 too?

    I do have some paid apps, TouchPro task manager, GRemote Pro, Panaromic Financial Calculator etc … do you think it will work in Win 7.

    I was preparing myself to go NAND Andorid and was going thru all your posts on that… and then bang here comes Win 7 ! now am confused…

    … shuld i wait for some time so Win 7 will be more perfected for HD2 and till that time play around with NAND android…?

    btw nice choice of backgroud music for the video…;) suits the mood… of the excitment to see Win 7 running on HD2!

    Thanks all your tips,

    rgds,

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Nope. WinMo 6.5 apps do not work on WP7. So I am staying with Android. Just installed WP7 for fun and testing… :P

  • http://n.a. Nilesh

    Dear Jayce,

    You have done a good stuff. I am interested to migrate to WP7 as you described the WP7 is working well on HD2. Please tell me that whether my old apps of WM 6.5 will work on WP7 operating system or not?

    Regards.

      Sorry, nope. None of WinMo 6.5 apps will work on WP7.

    Hi Jayce,
    Thanks for the step by step instructions to install WP7 in HTC HD2. Its like a dream comes true for me. I need a help from you. Can you please tell me about “How to enable 3G data conn after installing WP7 in HTC HD2 ” . Currently I went to Settings -> Cellular -> then create a “New APN” and it works now. But is there a standard way to fix the 3G connection?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      That’s should be the way. I am trying to find a permanent 3G connection only solution. I don’t want auto 2G / 3G connection. Too bad, still can’t find any…

    • Christian

      Hi Jayce,
      Thank you for the quick response. I have 1 more doubt. When I connect the USB in my phone( WP7 in HTC HD2), my PC is not detecting the phone. How to see the data in the memory card or how to add some data for eg., songs in the memory card! Can you help me please!!!!

      • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

        Officially, we need to use Zune software to copy music, movie to our phone. No USB drive mode in Windows Phone 7.

        Hi Jayce,
        Now I am in WP7 in HTC HD2 and I want to try NAND Android now. Can you please give me the steps!!! I tried pressing the vol down button and power but am not getting the MAGDLR boot loader menu. Its directly loading into windows phone now. How to get the MAGDLR boot menu and how to install NAND ANDROID now! I never tried installing NAND, previously was using SD Android and directly jumped to WM7. Your help is much appreciated.

    T-Mobile HD2 here. While running the ROMUpdateUtility, the phone and update see each other however, when the phone goes to the HTC boot screen, the progress stays a 0%, in the ROMupdate tool and phone. It eventually fails after 5 or so minutes.

    On battery eject and reboot, the phone boots into 6.5 fine.

    Hi jay
    I’ve install magldr on my phone but is stuk on htc logo. I’ve pressed off button, nothing happened.help please, my phone is stuck on htc logo after magldr I dindn,t run like administrator. Now I can’t connect to xp with USB
    Help, thx

    • Koen

      Hello Razvan,

      I received an answer for my problem (it was the same as yours): you should first install another radio (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=931508).

      You can still flash back to another ROM, simply push the button to lower the volume during startup (you’ll have the blue/red/etc screen). If you start a ROM install now, it will work.

      Good luck

      Koen

      • razvan

        thank you koen.
        i’ve search on the net and on xp i’ve uncheck the usb connection in activesync. i’ve manage to connect with pc and to install rom 1.66, and then i realized that the radio is 2.06, not 2.15. my mistake.

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Did you follow all the steps previously until you reach this error? Unzip DFT_LEO70_RELEASE.rar. Then run ROMUpdateUtility as administrator.

          • amanpreet

            Yes Sir . i install everything by playing video side by side . of HSPL , RADIO , MAGLDR , WIN 7 , everything was ok till MAGLDR , wen strted downloading WIN& found the error ..

            a Ques .. cn i install WIN 7 aftr Radio .. is it compulsary to download MAGLDR .

            Revert me Back with my both the queries pLease ..

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              You must install correct radio before WP7. Yes, install MAGLDR is a must.

              • amanpreet

                please tell me hspl , radio and magldr correct versions .
                so that i can get win 7 in my htc hd2 .
                is incorrect version of radio is the reason for that error ..?

                • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                  HSPL3, radio 2.15 and MAGLDR 1.12 (or above). Below errors might caused by incorrect unzip of the ROM and did not run ROMUpdateUtility as administrator.

                    have you got the solution? i am also facing the same problem. :(

                    • ashi

                      I want to install Windows phone 7 on WinPhone 6.5 (HTC HD2)

                      My Current ROM Details are:
                      OS Version: 5.2.21913
                      Manila Version: 2.5.20181527
                      ROM Version: 3.14.720.3
                      Radio Version: 2.15.50.14
                      Red, Green, Blue and White’ screen with SPL-3.03.0000 XE
                      (Even after installing HSPL 4, it is showing the same)

                      I was successfully able to install HSPL 4.0 and MAGLDR 1.13

                      then tried to install Radio 2.15 (in Admin mode). Progress bar was there in 0% and didnt progress…. :(

                      Since my Current Radio Version is also 2.15, I tried to skip this step and install MAGLDR113, that also hanged at 0% (admin mode) and could not progress much

                      Please guide me the right software and location to download for my phone configuration and suggest me to complete the installation successfully.

                      I am from India, what else are required for me during the installation or after the installation (other than live id)…
                      Regards

                      Did you install SPL-2.08.HSPL or SPL-3.03.HSPL? By the way, please start a new thread. This one is almost full already.

      actually in more detail after i have done the rom update utility my phone wont reboot, i can still connect it to the computer after that in the bootrom. Do this mean i have MAGLDR installed already and should i proceed with the next step?

    Hello, if i convert from android NAND to win7, will all my data in the phone, such as contacts, be erased? Or is there any way i can convert to win7 without compromising my data?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Yes, all the data on Android will be gone. Backup first if you are using ClockworkMod Recovery build. Or use backup software like Titanium Backup.

  • Alex G

    does the WP7 support SD cards? because i can’t take photos without it saying there wasnt enough space.

      Yes, WP7 uses SD card as storage. What size is your SD card?

    So I finished with installing windows 7 on my HTC hd2 and having trouble setting it up with Zune…could you make guide on how to do so?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Try the custom ROM. You should be able to connect it to Zune with just plug in the USB cable. ~ http://www.jayceooi.com/2011/02/16/top-3-windows-phone-7-wp7-roms-for-htc-hd2/

      • adrian g

        K thanks so much… Another thing … I have a problem with the device randomly rebooting and it seems as if nothing in the HTC hd2 didn’t save anything before the reboot… Until I restart the phone manually … Is this normal ?? And the phone doesn’t seem to want to power up when put into sleep mode… Why is that?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Hmm… I did not face random reboot issue on any WP7 ROM. Maybe I did not use long enough. I switched back to Android after testing. :P

          Power up from sleep? Use only power button. The rest of the buttons cannot use.

          • adrian g

            Ok look…. Another thing… Just wondering… How do I get it to work with another GSM network… Or so called unlocking it?

    Hi Jayce,

    In your opinion what is the best to use Andriod on HD2 or WM7 from all perspective, and if Andriod is better than WM7, can you send me the link to the Andriod ROM, I will change according to your opinion :)

    And by the way, many thanks for your updates and your efforts for making HD2 work for all OS, I really Appreciate it

  • Tareq

    Jayce,

    I already have WM7 on my HD2, do I have to do anything before I install the ROM you’ve sent me?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Nope. Just install that ROM will do.

  • Juan

    the link doesnt work for the stock leo rom

        Hey I wanted to ask. Is there a way to backup a nand rom using maglar. I want to flash other nand Tom’s but I don’t want to lose anything I done o my default rom. I’m using maglar 1.13 right now.

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          You can backup using ClockworkMod Recovery. But you need to have ClockworkMod Recovery Android ROM as well. Else Titanium Backup software can help you too.

  • Tareq

    Does it work for HD2 T-Mobile edition from US

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Yes, it should be.

      • Tareq

        Jayce,

        How can I install the HSPL3_PKG in order to install the Andriod 2.2 on my HD2, all the required updates or downgrades require active sync and it is not available in WM7 as you know.

        Thanks for all your efforts

        • Tareq

          Never mind, I just realized how to do it

          But also thanks :)

              I am trying to install arabic Fonts to my Andriod HD2, it says that you need to download specific files and run the mobile under recovery mode by holding Home + Power after turning off the phone, I can’t do that since the 123456 GO GO GO screen is appearing, can you please guide me how to install the new fonts and how to do it

              Thanks

              • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                Just holding power button when phone boot up, it will load into MAGLDR. Then go to recovery mode from there.

    Hi,

    MS just released an update for WM7 (Feb Update). I have installed WM7 on my HD2 and today I tried to install the new update, but at the end zune gave me an error message saying that my phone registry settings are wrong and therefore it cant install the updates.

    ideas?

    Thanks,
    Ali

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      That official update is not meant for custom ROM like WP7 on HTC HD2.

  • Bertjuhhh

    Hi there friends! I’m using now the windows phone7 and my HTC HD2 is couple of time faster than before with my old windows mobile 6.5.5,but there are several little problems. The first one problem is; This rom is not avaible into dutch language. And the second is; When I used my cable for active sync to update my phone than computer said; Update not posible because he gives a false code,and the third problem is; I cannot use Xbox Live games play,and I don’t know how to do to download because it’s not even posible!

    Greetz, Bertus

  • Tareq

    Jayce,

    Can you help me about this, I am trying to install the Arabic language to the Android 2.2 (HD2), it always show the letters separated and the alignment is from left to right instead of right to left, do you have any solution for that?

    Thanks

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Sorry, no idea.

      • Tareq

        Hi again,

        Sorry for my questions, but I am new to Android and it’s development area, I used to develop and do whatever I want on Windows Mobile and can’t do anything on the Android, I got the way on how to correct the Arabic language, it is requesting to run root explorer which I already installed, but whenever I am running the Root Explorer it says that I won’t be able to use it since the permission for the su is not granted and I can’t allow it, can you please guide me how to give permission to that application or any other application on su since I noticed it is already there with this ROM.

        Can you also provide me a link to the best SDK for this version that works perfectly on HD2

        Thanks

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce
        • Tareq

          It is already installed but still with black screen, another thing, I am trying also to install Android ClockWorkMod recovery published by you for HD2, it seems for me it is much better and convenient, but I am facing a problem in step number 17 which is selecting the Boot AD SD, it is not doing anything, if I try to read the error message which stays for less than 1 second, it says K:/Garmin/zImage, I used to have Garmin Installed on my SD but I formatted the SD and then repeated the steps but same problem

          Can you please advise what should be done, and shall I go with this Android version or shall I keep working on the one you’ve suggested?

          Thanks

    Hi i installed everything exactly as it was described in the Prerequisites and then installed W7 as instructed and everything went without a hitch.

    The problem i have now is that the phone will switch on and it gives me around 30 seconds of life and then reboots itself. It doesn’t seem to matter what i do (play with it or leave it alone) it will just keep going round and round in a reboot cycle.

    Has anyone come across this problem and how do you fix it?

    Please help.

      i Installed WP 7 at my HTC and i like the interface and graphics, but i dislike the engine of how install applications becouse need activation code and i stay in Brazil and here don´t has WP7,
      So android is more flexible than WP 7, and i can´t run the update of february at my phone……

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      This guide should be work for T-Mobile HD2 too. You can skip to install new radio ROM. But you will need HSPL installed.

    I just finished installing windows 7 onto my hd2, but now I am unable to use either of my sd cards for music or movie storage. is there a way around this to use my sd cards while using the windows 7 rom?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Nope, you need to use Zune software to transfer music and movie to your WP7 phone. Can’t copy to SD card directly.

      • Mando

        I downloaded the Zune software, but now when I try to transfer music or any type of file its saying there isnt enough space. I tried putting in a different sd card, but the card wouldnt get detected to increase the memory. Any idea’s??

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          You need to use the SD card that you installed WP7. Can’t use a new SD card like that. How much disk space is your initial SD card?

          • Mando

            I used a 2gb SD card while installing WP7, which left me with no space. Then i tried using a 16gb SD card after the install was complete, but it wouldnt be detected.

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              Try to reinstall WP7 with 16GB SD card attached.

              • Mando

                Looks like installing WP7 with a bigger SD card leaves ya with space. Thanks for the assist on that. Just one more thing, I cant seem to find a “button” to bring up the menu in different windows. Would you which one is it?

                • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                  Sorry, I am not sure which button do you mean. You need to try it out yourself as I don’t have WP7 on my phone now.

  • Mando

    ohh ok, no problem. Thanks for the assist though.

      Does your PC manages to recognize your phone when on USB Flasher mode? Make sure that you have Windows Mobile Device Center installed on Windows Vista / Windows 7 or ActiveSync installed on Windows XP.

                • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                  MAGLDR USB Flasher mode will work if you have Windows Mobile Device Center installed. No need WinMo 6.5 anymore.

                  • kMkz

                    yep i installed mobile device center already and i still got the same error…i was thinking to go back to sock winmo 6.5 and start over…could that work?

                    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                      To install MAGLDR, you need to load into ‘Red, Green, Blue and White’ bootloader.

  • kMkz

  • Louie

    Hi Jaycee,
    Great Instructions! however, ive encontered a problem when Im trying to update rom utility…it gives me an “error 208″. Does that mean that my utility is up to date?

    thanks

    Louie

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Sorry, did not face error 208 previously. Does the error have any description?

      • Louie

        Thanks for the prompt reply. While Im trying to perfomr the first step, ROM Updtae Utility, I get this:

        ERROR [208]: FILE OPEN
        The Update Utility can not open the requested file. Please check you Update utility.

        Do you know what could be causing this error that does not allow me to do the update? Your how-to videos are awesome. Thanks for the help.

        Louie

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Seem like access right issue or missing file issue. Did you run it as administrator? Or try to re-download the ROM it again.

          • Louie

            I looked up the error code and you are right, it said something about re-dowloaling the file and attempting it again however, i didnt have any luck. I did run it as an administrator though. I will try it again and let you know if I was successful.

            Thank you very much for your prompr replies. I have never gotten help so fast from anyone online, including forums. I appreciate your help. Take care.

    Hi,
    I rly need help.
    I installed wp 7 on my htc hd 2, use it for a while and then it crashed .
    When I was turning phone on there was written ….. fatal error .
    Now it won’t start, even when charging the orange led is off.
    Sorry for my English .

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Can you still load into ‘Red, Green, Blue and White’ screen bootloader? Press volume down button (don’t let go) and power on your phone.

      • Michael

        No I can’t . It doesn’t react whatever would I do .

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          In this case, please send it to HTC Support. We can’t do anything if bootloader is not working.

          • Michael

            u mean service ( by HTC Support)?

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              Yes

  • Kevin

    glad i follow thru your steps and installed win7, works greats, run smooth, only problem is when i try to do an update it wont also update and when i try to download apps tells me cant connect or some type of error, oh while typing this phone restarted twice and now it wont even turn on had to take out battery, do you know what causing that?

    also do you have a link where i can install the newest andriod instead of win7?

  • tommy

    hi jaycee wanna thank you for your help so far.Please i installed widows7 on my hd2 with my sd card inserted.when it booted,i could not see it on the phone and when i inserted in a usb,it shows 199MB.my memory card is 16gb.what do i do.

  • kikson

    Hi jaycee,my Hd2 shuts down unexpectedly of recent.i have installed a the roms available,and i have even gone back to the one that came with the phone but still it does the same thing.Please what can i do?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      If the issue still happen on fresh stock Windows Mobile ROM, you might need to send your HD2 to service.

  • Marc

    Hi Jayce,
    I recently installed WP7 over android on my HD2 but without the sdcard in..when I place the sd card in, and connected usb to computer, it doesnt get found.
    Is there a way to ‘move’ WP7 to the sd memory rather than phone memory.. I was considering going back to android ROM then re installing windows?

    Ps I saw your reviving thread, is this what I should try?

    Many thanks,

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      No, WP7 needs to run on internal storage.

      • Marc

        wow! thankyou for a fast response..!
        so, I have seen a list on sites of sd cards that should be recognisable.. the one I have is on there and confirmed but I cant see it on my computer or on the zune software which is used to transfer music etc..

        Many thanks,
        Marc

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          You need SD card to be in the phone when you install WP7. Not after that. Try to reinstall WP7 with SD card.

          • Marc

            SOLVED: reinstalled without having to uninstall the previous ROM first! 14GB of luscious storage to fill!

            Thankyou for your kind help Jayce!

  • RFT

    Hey Jayce, I have a question. I have successfully installed wp7 on my hd2 and I am able to use internet, windows live services, etc. However, there is a big problem with my memory space. Htere is virtually no space available to do anything else. for example, after a couple text conversations, the phone alerts me about a low memory on the device. When connected to zune on my computer the phone shows 0.0MB available of free space. I’m wondering if there if anyone knows what to do here.

    Also, when in the marketplace, i try to install an application, like youtube or facebook, it informs me that the application info is not available for download.

    thanks.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          You need SPL-2.08.HSPL to use WP7. Reinstall HSPL again. Else MAGLDR won’t work.

    Hi Jayce,

    I managed to follow the following steps

    Now, the phone is on the start up page. Displays an “O2 Welcome” logo and nothing seems to be happening after that.

    Any ideas?

  • Vikas Palan

    ****steps that i followed.****

    • Vikas Palan

      Press volume down button (don’t let go) and power on your phone.
      It will load into bootloader.

        I removed the battery and put it back in, does not boot up anymore :(

          I think its useless to install WP7 on HD2, because its not as good as it works on HD7.
          calling Green button will turn on ur Camera, and then another stupid thing is u cant connect to pc using mASS storage and u cant even use memory card with it, no songs even if u connect it using zune software, u cant copy songs. because it shows memory full, best option is Android froyo one like desire hd :)

          • Hazeno

            No idea what your talking about here ZNYQ. But the functionability is fine. Sounds to me like your card isn’t compatible with WP7 thats why you have a storage issue. I would advise looking over Xbmod And Yuki’s Back to the Future Wp7 ROM. Its by far the most stable and updateable via Zune to Mango 7740.
            WP7 stopped mass storage and now use Zune to add files. If you select the right Country on the install to what country your Zune is the connectivity is fine.

            Running WP7 on my HD2. It’s fine. Bar you need to hack your registry for A fix to the battery level indicator. And the camera on Call button was removed and can be set to anythin you like.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Read the guide carefully. And install all the required components.

  • Ashraf

    Hi Jayce, I’ve followed your instructions until the point number 13 sucesfully, but then i’ve forgotten to hold the power (13. Then hold power button and don’t let go.) so the original boot loader run. When i saw my mistake, i’ve restarted the device but the option to load your bood loader was no more available and now my phone stacks in HTC screen without any other option to boot or start the previous room. What can i do?
    regards, Ashraf

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Power on your phone. Hold power button and don’t let go. It will load MAGLDR then.

      • Ashraf

        Hi and thanks for your fast anwser, I’ve tried several times powering and holding for more than 5 min the power button and device doesn’t go after the first screen “white background and HTC green logo”.

        When device stays with this screen, only chance to swith it off or restart is removing battery. There is some other buttons combination to reset device or to load some previous configuration. If i connect the handy by usb, windows doesn’t find it.

        regards and thanks in advanced,
        Ashraf

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          By the way, did install SPL-2.08.HSPL and radio 2.15 previously?

          • Ashraf

            Yes, SPL-2.08 HSPL was properly installed and with same feedback as in the video.

            For radio i’ve used 1.66 as u wrote on the text:

            You should have this SPL version unless you are using the latest 3.14 ROM with SPL
            3.03.0000. No worry, just downgrade your Windows Mobile ROM from v3.14 to v1.66 …

            I had before rom version 3.14 with SPL 3..3 and i’ve downgraded to v. 1.66

            What should I do now?

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              Install radio 2.15.

  • Ashraf

    Hi, i’ve tried to install 2.15 but when i start my device, i don’t get the 4 colors screen as in your video, just white screen with green logo “htc” so when i run the radio 2.15 software, it can’t find my device (connecting previously usb cable between device and laptop) getting in radio software the following error:
    Error [260] connection, the update utility cannot connect to your pda/phone…..

    how can i get the 4 colours screen to install the radio 2.15 as you said in your previous msg?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce
      • Ashraf

        Hi, when i switch the device on, i don’t get the 4 colors screen but a white screen with Green HTC logo….

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          I have no further idea if above guide didn’t work for you…

          • Ashraf

            Hi and thanks anyway for your help, i will send the handy to Htc provider, when i get the repaired one, should I use 2.15 or 1.6 ? with 2.15 should work everything fine?

            regards, Ashraf

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              Come on, did you read the guide that I just sent you? You can’t load tri colour bootloader by pressing volume down button (don’t let go) and power on your phone?

              • Ashraf

    hi,
    i am trying to update my HTC HD2 WP 6.5 to WP7
    but when i connect my phone with the pc ,
    the pc does not connect to it, i mean in the white row there is serial written but when you plug it in then it says USB in that white row,
    so please tell me how to solve this problem
    thanks in advance

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Hi Hamza, at which step did you face this issue?

  • Hamza Sajid

    i face this issue on the 4th step on my mobile it does not say USB when i connect it to the PC

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

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

      • Hamza Sajid

        no, i dont have that,
        but i am downloading it right now,
        and please tel me what i have to do after downloading it,i mean i should just follow the above mentioned steps or i have to sync the phone first?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Hmm… Did you install all prerequisites?

          • Hamza Sajid

            no i cant install the prerequisites because when i download the first one and extract it and then run it ,my antivirus says that its a threat so i didnt download it,i tried it 3 times but AVG always kicks in,
            would my phone be able to run WP7 without the prerequisites??

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              No, you need to install those first. Use HSPL4 then.

              • HamzaSajid

    During DWI installation, it worked fine until it reached flashing 4th partition it stopped and show following errors:
    An error has occurred
    Read below for more information

    Error Description: send d000ff partition data failed
    Info: .\RSPL\RSPL.cpp (1279)

    Error Description: block send fail
    Info: .\RSPL\RSPL.cpp (962)

    Error Description: Block is after end.
    Info: .\RSPL\RSPL.cpp (704)

    I did change several external cards but without success.
    I have seen the video the flashing partitions upto 7th before reset to start phone.

    Thanks for your help and advice.

    (This is a repeated message that I posted on “How to fix USB init failed RSPL\RSPL.cpp (723) on NAND Android installation?”. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.)

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce Ooi

      Hi brian, it might be your NAND memory issue. Try to restore to stock Windows Mobile see.

      • brian

        Hi Jayce, thanks for your reply. Appreciate if you can elaborate more on how to “restore stock Windows Mobile”? Do you mean to restore it back to 6.5? But it looks like not able to go back to the original os since it has been hacked by using MAGLDR1.13. Not sure if I unstood correctly. Thanks again.
