Download dandiest Desire Z Android ROM for HTC HD2

Finally, I tested HTC Desire Z Android ROM for HTC HD2. I don’t care much about it because why we need to have hardware keyboard ROM on HTC HD2. Based on xda-developer, dandiest, HTC Desire Z has exactly the same features, but in some sense, lighter than Desire HD, which is more suitable for HD2. The build is based on latest Desire Z v1.72.466.4, Cedesmith new Initrd and Hastarin r8.6 kernel. And running Android 2.2.1. No harm to try it out, right?

Quadrant score
Software information

Extremely high I/O score in Quadrant. I wonder why it means… By the way, I changed the folder name from ‘desire_z’ to ‘Android’ and changed the startup.txt setting to ease one click Android Launcher.

  1. Hi Jayce, I have installed dandiest Desire Z the way it is suggested above and it ran perfectly with using internet via home wifi (which Use WPA-PSK Encryption) as well APN where ever applicable. However, following day, it is not able to connect to Wifi at all, it tries to connect and show obtaining IP address but then stops. I have tried changing setting on wifi router but no solution. The same wifi (mac address 00 23 f9 df 76 4f) works perfectly on WinMo 6.5.
    I also realised that when on Android, it shows a mac address 00:11:22:33:44:55 which is I belive the problem causing wifi not to connect.
    Can you let me know how this happened and solution for this.
