Want to have NAND Android or Windows Phone 7 on your HTC HD2? SPL-2.08.HSPL from DFT HSPL4 is the very first thing that you need to install. HSPL4 includes SPL-2.08.0000, SPL-2.08.HSPL, SPL-3.03.0000 and SPL-3.03.HSPL. How to Install HSPL4 on HTC HD2? And which HSPL should I install? In short, install SPL-3.03.HSPL if you want to install latest custom Windows Mobile 6.5 ROM. Or install SPL-2.08.HSPL if you want to install NAND Android or Windows Phone 7.
HSPL4 should support all HTC HD2 and T-Mobile HD2 SPL version. And do make sure that you have Windows Mobile Device Center or ActiveSync installed, else HSPL4 cannot detect your HTC HD2 in USB mode. It needs USB drivers from there.
Yeah… DFT team released HSPL4 for all of us finally. Good news for those using latest official HTC HD2 ROM v3.14 because it supports SPL 3.03.0000. Note – SPL-3.03.HSPL only supports Windows Mobile 6.5. You still need to use SPL-2.08.HSPL to use NAND Android and Windows Phone 7. Make sure that you select the correct Hard SPL for your ROM installation.
ClockworkMod Recovery v1.3 for HTC HD2 is another Chinese New Year Gift to me. Thanks xda-developer, RaiderX303. It is a must installed application for MAGLDR v1.13. ClockworkMod Recovery is now booting from NAND instead of the old SD Card boot method. Download the recovery with the partition layout you require to flash the ROM. Then flash it like standard NAND ROM using DAF and MAGLDR USB Flasher. Finally, select AD Recovery to load into ClockworkMod Recovery.
