                    • Weird… WP7 installation is the same as NAND Android. Both using the same method.

                      I am using HSPL3 and 2.15 radio. Installed using Windows 7 with Windows Mobile Device Center. What system configuration do you have?

  4. Yo. thanks for all this greatness!! love the hacking tools.

    but 1 question…which track did you use in the video?

    greetz from the netherlands

  5. Jayce…let me start off by thanking you for all that you do with these new builds…

    I just installed my NAND ROM and it is working perfectly…a little delay with the gps but that was a problem even with wimo.

    The installation was a lot quicker and simpler than the SD install.

    Keep up the good work…

  6. Did the install too, on my HD2. Works fine. Had a problem with the G-sensor, but display-down calibration solved that. No I’ve got the robotic-voice problem… (did not have that earlier!) Any clue what to do?

    Thanks for the great instructions!

    Bye (also from the Netherlands)


  7. Fixed my g sensor problem by calibrating with display downwards (at the edge of a table). Sound problems gone after power down, remove battery and reboot. Just wanted to let you all know! 😉

  8. Hey i need help. So ive installed the Magldr v1.10 but i keep gettin this gogogo message, and i just found out i need v1.11. But how do i update Magldr??

  9. hi jayce :
    question, if i already have stock rom radio ROM 2.15 i still need to install HSPL3 on HTC HD2? or just Install MAGLDR on HTC HD2 will do?

  10. My phone is stuck on “loading please wait”…. after I installed DFT MAGLDR Bootloader. Nothing else is happening. What should I do?


  11. Once I have done all of the steps exactly as you detailed. (Including HSPL, Custom Radio, and MAGLDR) I get the following error when flashing the Android:

    Error happen
    Read below for more information

    Error Description: send partition data failed

    Error Description:

  12. Hello Jayce,

    First, thank you for taking the time to help all the people respect !

    My story was, that the foon ( screen ) will freeze when i had call somebody.

    The strange thing now is, whem I use the foon with my navigation unit in my car ( Pioneer AVIC F910-BT) via bluetooth, everything is working just fine, i can make the call myself and the foon wil be working like it shoot do.

    I have searched on the IE by my dear friend Mr Google 😉 but their is nohting to find about my problem.

    Do you have some solution to this problem

    greeting Ferdinand

  13. Hey Jayce,

    I found something with my foon, don’t now the reason, but here it is.

    When i use the telefone item ( screen button ) on the main screen to select a name after hanging up the screen will freeze.

    But If a go to the apps screen and use HTC-contacts and dail a name than everything is ok ????

    Is there a way to delete the standard fone button in the middel ( on the screen ), and place there the widget of HTC caontacts????

    I hope you do understand what i trying to say 🙂

    Greetings from Holland, Ferdinand

  14. WHOA. THANKS :)) One last question.

    I have a problem please help.

    • hai frank
      this is the problem look the text …and redownload your NAND

      Not able to make a usb connection to the phone when in Magldr

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

      Go to the Activesync icon in the bottom right corner, right click on it and untick the option “Allow usb connections” and then connect the device again. Run daf.exe (or install.exe) as administrator by right clicking on it and selecting the option (if using Windows7 or Vista). Hopefully the usb drivers will then install and the Android Rom will flash.

      Another option could be to uninstall and reinstall Activesync or to try different usb ports on your pc. If that doesnt work and you have Windows XP then you need to try on a machine with Vista or Windows 7.

      Error Description: send partition data failed

      Error Description:

      Try removing your micro SD Card then redownload your NAND Rom again. Extract it using WinZip or WinRar then right click and select Run As Administrator (Vista and Windows7 only) with your AntiVirus turned off

  17. Hey guys you know that new update that the evo got i think its 3.70. But they got new features like the blockbuster app and such, is there anyway to update the hd2 into Android 3.70 like the evo?

  21. hi i got this message show as below, while install Nand Adroid.

    Error happen
    Read below for more information

    Error Description: USB init failed

    pls help..urgent …thks

  22. Hi Jayce,

    I got Android on SD card… so i can keep winmo as well.

    Not ready to go for Android in NAND. Reason is I couldnt find applications like listpro (excellent, sophisticated to do list manager.. more like an excel for mobile), keeptrack (fin managemet app ) Panaromic Calc Pro (Calculator with different modes.. help me a lot at work) Andorid looks good for games and tiny apps but not more sophisticated ones like these… or am i wrong…? i think winmo does have some advantages there…needed your opinion before i let go of winmo…

    Plus feel unease, when free apps in android market asks for a lot of permissions before letting us install it… will it creates security issues?

    ur expert opinion pls,

    thanks in advance,


    • I missed Garmin Mobile XT on Windows Mobile. But I installed Papago! on Android to replace it.

      As for permissions, I don’t care much. Applications on Android Market should be okay since Google filter them before release to us… 😉

  23. Why does the G-Sensor not working on my HD2,
    I’ve even reflash it 3 Times and it does not work??? (please help me)
    I have installed it on 3 other HD2 phones it’s okay???

  24. im having one issue..when i run the DAF.exe file it can’t detect my phone via usb connection…on the phone it shows “wait usb…usb” which means that it connected right? and on the computer the error message says “Error Description: USB init failed Info: .\RSPL\RSPL.cpp(723) any idea on how to get past this step? thanx

  25. Hi Jayce, i just want to know how can we connect htc hd2 with and android rom to PC because it always appear in the PC please insert disk.

    • Can’t help you much since you don’t like to reply my previous questions. 😛

      1. Go into Wi-Fi settings. Turn on Wi-Fi. What kind of error did you get?
      2. Can you read your SD card using card reader in PC?

  30. i am trying to connect my phone to my computer and i am choosing the connection type on my phone but nothing shows up on the computer.

  31. Dear friend,

    i have successfully installed the NAND android and it works smooth as cutting butter with knife.
    But i have 3 issues right now.
    1) i cant make videos?
    2) The G-sensor does not work properly like the sensor does not interacts properly and whenever i am using any application, it goes on landscape mode, how can i fix this issue?
    3) All the applications are being installed on the Phone storage which is reducing my hd2 space in just few applications. How can i directly install the applications on the memory card instead of installing it in the phone memory and then moving them to the memory card, but it works only for third party applications?

    Please help, as these three things are very important for me which needs to be fixed.

    • 1. Make video clip?
      2. It is a known bug. Install another ROM that doesn’t have this issue. Else find a patch to fix it.
      3. Install Android ROM that support A2SD+. It will install apps directly into SD card.

  32. Thanks for the good step by step instructions.

    I have one issue, I am unable to connect to the Internet after the install. I’ve tried the settings but no success.

  33. Hi Jayce,

    I have installed nand android on my HD2 and everything is working perfectly. Only thing that is strange is GPS. It needs about 10 min and more to receive valid signal from satellites. In winmo 6.5 that time was less then one minute. I was using A-GPS and i cant find such thing in android.
    Any advice?


  34. hello jayce,

    i have already installed many android nand, but the jdms ultimate and the latest cyanogen gingerbread i cannot install, is there a different way of installing it?

    many thanks to you,


  35. Hey Jayce,

    I am the one with the tochscreen problems with dailing somebody.

    A strange thing happend, i thought i put a lockscreen on the fone lockv2.0 ( a kind of iphone lockscreen ), and yeaaaaaaahhhh everything is working fine, now i can hang up the fone en the sceen doesn’t freezes anymore.

    When i delete the lock 2.0 app than screens turns black after a call.

    For now i am happy, but i still want to now what trigger this problem.

    Greetings Ferdinand

  36. The issue I was having was when I tried flashing the rom. I just used the task 29 and tried it again and worked for me that tim.e. Not very helpful I know, but it’s working fine for me now.

  37. hey jayce!! everything is working fine except the in-call volume…very very low. Any fixes for that? my android automatically runs as soon as i installed i didnt need to do the auto boot
    how to start with MAGDLR to select the flash mode Android.?
    and try to install another nand?
    which I recommend?
    Thanks for everything, very good video … makes it so easy …
    I Am from PARAGUAY

    • Power on your phone and don’t let go power button. It will load into MAGLDR. I have no idea on low in-call volume, I am using JDMS Ultimate build now. No issue with that. 😉

  38. wow wow wow !

    you’re true god buddy !
    I’ve seen umpteen link to NANd and i had zero confidence to get it done as i didn’t want to brick my HD2 phone.

    Through your simple and amzing tips, i am running NAND happyily !
    Thanks, i appreciate your cool headedness and confidence !

  39. If i run this with my memory card in my phone, will all the data be deleted? Is it better if i just run this whole procedure with out my memory card?

  40. jayce, when i downgrade to 1.66 rom, it shows me 448mb of RAM. does it really matter if i am putting NAND android on it? please reply soon

  41. Hello jayce,

    Thanks for all the help i am now running desire HD rom. But its a bit slugish as i wasnt able to see my ram size larger than 448 when i downgraded to 1.66.

    i want to change the android to darkstone as ive heard its the fastest and smoothest. i tried installing custom RUU to 2.15 but it still showed 448mb. I tried some other links but it was asking for user name and pwd.

    How to remove this andriod and install another>

    P.S and VERY important, i tried everything but i couldnt get over with the USB error. i moved the folders to the desktop from a specific folder and it all worked fine.. STRANGE!!

    • Glad to know that. And you are most welcome.

      By installing radio 2.15, it already enable 576MB of RAM. But you can’t see it from user stand point, because system used up some and some for video RAM.

      As for the sluggishness, it is caused by Desire HD ROM itself. Try JDMS Ultimate (I am using this one). Super fast and stable. 🙂

      To install another NAND Android, just start this page installation process again. It will replace the existing one. Oh, before I forget. Power on (don’t let go power button) phone, it will bring you to MAGLDR.

  42. Hey Jayce! So the Android ROM has been on my phone for a couple of days now, and it works fine so far. One thing though, my internet connention does not say 3g, it has the letter H instead. it still works fine but i dnt know if this is a problem. Do you have a link where i can fix my internet connection?

      • No it works fine. I love the Rom its so smooth nd easy to use! So my internet connection is legit which means my carrier will not over charge me or nothing right? And again thank you jayce so much for all ur help and support! Much love from California! 🙂

  43. Hi Jayce,
    Thanks for your answers!

    I have one more question. In video camera options i found hd resolution (720) mode. When i select that mode and star recording everything is fine. When I want to end filming the screen stays in recording mode and I can not do anything to stop it to save the video.

    Is there any solution?

    Thank you again!

  44. I am having a HUGE problem i need to return my htc hd2 with the original stock room i am unable to return to the settings i normally had when i got the phone can you help me i have 6 days to return the phone…..i installed the android rom above not knowing i would not be able to return to its original stock ….

  45. I have install DFT LEO NAND ANDROID on my HTC HD 2 but I am having problems with internet connection. Last night it worked for a few minutes, I then soft reset the phone and pulled the battery I even have app refresh signal and I even went into settings and did a reset to default APN settings, last night all this got it working again but this morning no network connection again. I can make and receive calls I just can’t get online or use any app that requires a network connection.

  46. i looked at the video you sent me and my phone does not want to sync with the active sync all i have is htc sync on the android 2.2 any suggestions of how to connect my phone to my laptop and not use mobile device center….

  47. Did not “Uncheck allow USB connections” encounter. Error Description: USB init failed Info: .\RSPL\RSPL.cpp(723)

    However,my HD2 got reboot and seems to start loading and hang at the HTC quietly brilliant logo…what can I do?

    I have updated the HSPL3 and Radio….

      • sorry for the late reply. I took the hard road by reinstall with Rom 1.66 and repeated the steps. No issue after that.

        Btw, I am using DMS Ultimate Android ROM and notice the WiFi signal seems to be weaker than mattc Leo + Froyo wSense 1.7. Even the signal on my notebook reflects a stronger signal.

        Any tuning you are aware of?

        thanks in advance. Happy Chinese New Year. 🙂

        • Happy Chinese New Year. 😀

          I did not actually check the Wi-Fi strength on previous ROM. So can’t compare on JDMS ROM now. So far it is working fine. Sorry, don’t know how to boost the signal yet.

  48. I cant boot into Android, Im stuck on the black screen “Boot Menu” and been here for 2 days now. I just want to boot back to WM 6.5 (is there a link)? Plus my usb cannot connect to my pc (its not reading it).. HELP PLEASE!!!!!!

  54. Hi Jayce,

    I bought official extended battery for hd2. Some time earlier I have installed nand android and it worked great. When I attached new (extended) battery it won’t charge and load android completely. It shuts down when gets to lock screen. What should I do to make my phone support this battery?

    Thanks in advance!

  55. He Jayce,

    Please Help.
    I got stuck at the part with the ERROR….
    I read some articles above, but nothing did help.
    Is there anything else I can do? Can I get back to WM?
    My mobile is stuck right now!!

  56. After I installed NAND Android, how do i go back to Win6.5? Hard reset?
    What do i hard reset to if i am using NAND Android? Back to android?

  57. Thank you thank you so much for this! I followed the directions exactly – of course had a few issues with the 7zip but all is good. I love my phone so much more!

    I have encountered a problem sending picture sms text messages. It says “Generic Network Failure” I’ve looked all over to find a fix and have tried various APN settings, but still no luck.

    Is there a fix for this?

    Thank you for sharing this info!

  58. i have a few questions,about my rom,curently im using official rom 3.14 and the radio 2.15. ive tried downgrade my rom,but i only found the lowest rom is 1.72 and radio 2.07. ive tried to install according to your steps with 1.72 rom and i get stucked during installation on magldr. its stuck on the 1st screen htc logo,i did tried to follow by hold the end key to get the bootloader but failed. do u have any idea,since i cannot getrom version 1.66 for my hd..thank you

      • yes i did install HSPL3 i download it from your link. I managed to install HSPL3 til i message “hacked”. I stuck at MGLDR, after installing, the bootloader stuck and hang at HTC logo.

        1. As what you have mentioned, we need ROM 1.66. I checked from HTC according to my version is from Hongkong, I only found the lowest ROM 1.72. So i give a shot download and install it. My current ROM is 3.14 so i downgrade it to 1.72.

        2. At first my SPL is 3.03, after downgrade to ROM 1.72, i got SPL 1.66.

        3. RGB, the R required 2.15.*** which I have it exactly on my current ROM 3.14 . But after I downgrade it to 1.72 ROM, the R appears 2.07.***

        4. ROM 3.14 radio is 2.15.50 after downgrade to 1.72 the radio is 2.07.51.

        You have any solution for that? Im not really sure 1.72 rom support 576MB ram. I tried to download ROM 1.66 according to your link, but i cannot download it due to the serial number of my phone is not match.

          • ok so I need to upgrade it to 2.15 radio ROM. how about the ROM version, 3.14 or 1.72? sory im a bit new here and im a bit confuse with the ROM and the Radio ROM.

            3.14 ROM will give 2.15.40 Radio ROM, SPL 3.03

            1.72 ROM will give 2.07.15 Radio ROM, SPL 1.66

            Can the Radio ROM version be upgrade to 2.15.40 without touching the ROM 1.72?

  59. please help,after i installed MAGLDR now my phone is freeze only say HTC and white screen stay like that forever , i tried to turn it off and turn it back on it still say htc . please help how to get it back to normal. thank you.

  60. yes I did installed HSPL3 about 3 months ago and the radio I just installed this morning and after I installed the radio I started to install MAGLDR and after that it’s freeze only Htc logo.

    • no your phone is still working. Its happened to me. you plug in the usb and connect it to your computer. switch on your hd by holding volume down + end call. til you see your SPL version etc and get a message below USB from the trio color.

      your computer does not recognize your phone, you need to update the driver from internet. it will install the latest driver for you to detect your phone.

      download your official ROM, and install in back from your computer. The RUU. thats all. hope its working.

  61. hey jay i installed this on my hd2 and it works perfect everything calls wifi just everything but i do find the battery still kinda bad is there anything i can do to get a good battery life and yes i am running this of nand not sd card thanks

  62. Does the NAND install work on t-Mob HSPL3 –> Radio –> MAGldr or would i need custom rom. Also which one you recommend for NAND android install 2.12 or 2.15

  63. i download this and install it on my hd2. when people call me all i hear is a robot voice and the 3g doesnt seem to be working. my phone also does not want to charge. is there anyway i can reset the phone settings? i want to put it in windows mobile 6.5 . the system it came with

  64. hi Jayce,

  65. I have flashed my phone with the Nand Android 2.2 ROM but I am now unable to send a txt message, although I can receive them….is there anything I need to do?


  66. I need help i have windows 7 and my phone isnt connecting to the computer, im stuck on this “”wait…usb” screen..HELP PLZ lol IM PHONELESS! :'(

  67. Installed Android 2.2 using NAND ROM and everything works perfectly except mobile web. I can get web content using wi-fi, but not over T-mobile web service. All other features work perfectly and I have had no issues with any other services. Any suggestions?


  68. That’s correct. I’m not a techie (as you can probably tell from my verbiage in my question). I don’t have 3G or EDGE service on my HD2 despite several reboots and contacting T-Mobile to make sure I have the correct service (mobile web).

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

  69. I’m getting a black screen that says

      Hold down the “volume down” button to get to the right mode for reinstallation

  83. Hello this may be a rather stupid question but when all this is installed and done does the android market work to where you can purchase and downloads apps and games.

  84. hey there.
    am i right???
    to install android on hd2, did i need to copy anything to sd-card.

    my hd starts with these:

    all goes until android start up.
    it starts. the same picture on screen, like the picture of video on top.
    then it go black and close.?????????????

    • No idea. Lot of factors can make Android fail to boot. As long as you are using the same settings / applications as mine, you are fine. Because I tested them.

  85. boot:
    PB81100 HX-BC
    SPL-2.08.HSPL 8G XE

    from HSPL3_PKG.

    os ver: 5.2.21913 (21913.5.0.94)
    manila ver:2.5.20181527.0

    rom ver:3.14.403.2.(04666) danish

  97. Hi i wanted to know how to reinstall windows 6.5 because mine cracked & i’m getting it replaced. I’m pretty sure it’s illegal to hack phones so i wanted to reinstall it just in case.

  98. Hey, this is a great build! Way smoother than Windows. The only issue that I have is that I cannot connect to the internet through my data service. It only works when I am in Wifi range. Have you encountered this?

  99. Hi Jayce, after how many months, 4 months to be exact, I’m experiencing some problems on the build I’ve installed, it was from Cotulla, the new years gift from him, 2.2 build…. Running smooth over the past month but, I guess 3 weeks ago, I started to hang up with a weird noise coming from it, like a static or flow of electricity. It usually occur when I’m playing or watching movies. Can you help me with my problem. Thanks.

    • btw
      this is my software info
      android version – 2.2
      baseband version –
      kernel version –
      build number – 2.29.405.5 CL293415 release-keys
      software number – 2.29.405.5
      browser version – webkit 3.1

  100. Jayce, my MAGLDR V1.13 is different from what you have on the video. My USB flasher is on number 5 not on number 4.

    Here’s what is written on my screen

    aMAGLDR V1.13
    Build: Feb 1 2011 03:46:07
    by Cotulla 2011


    Boot Menu:

    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
    10. Services
    11. Reset
    12 PowerDown

    when I click number 5, my phone flashes

    USB Flasher mode
    Wait USB…

    then nothing happens.

    I installed everything you said.Help please. 🙁

  101. Jayce ignore my previous queries. I have installed Anroid to my HTC HD2! Thank you for your patience. Everything went fine. In fact i was able to download apps from marketplace except that when it hung, i restarted it by removing the battery and now it wont boot android. im just left with the black screen with htc green letters. any advice?

  102. Hey man, just wanted to say I followed your tut and it worked like a charm, I kissed WM6.5 goodbye, and soaking myself in the awesomeness that is Android..

    One thing left to try, pay up my bill and try data on the phone. Will let you know how it works

  103. Dude, my 3G isn’t working, a question before I start crying, in APN settings, do I need something other than the server name, username and password?

      • Hey man, checked with my telco, got the settings (which were already in the phone anyways when I ported the ROM)

        Now, no internet over network whatsoever, and the bars at the top don’t show any data signals (I’m assuming like with WinMo I would see a G, H, or something, right?)

        I tried doing the instructions above, just creating a blank APN and selecting it, that didn’t work either.

        Any ideas?

        Should I try to reinstall Android?

        • Reinstall Android won’t help. You need to key in the correct values in APN settings. My telco works by putting dummy value but I am not sure yours.

  104. Dude I just found out I can’t send SMS, where can I find the settings, I can receive but not send, I opened up settings but can’t find the usual stuff (msg center no. etc.)

  105. Hay Jayce, I buy a second hand HD2 with already with Android OS, had Magldr 1.13 version, than boot with Android DL super init, 4 weeks works normally, than someday I choose hibernate the phone, because everytime I choose power off option it always turn off than turn on again all the times. After I hibernate at the morning I turn on the phone and stuck at Android Super DL init and won’t show green android logo again until now. I had already read the procedure you gave me, last time I try to run DFT LEO “Stock” NAND Android ROM it stuck at DFT screen and wait until battery last won’t contiune. What should I do now?

  106. Ok, I try it, I already try again with another ROM had a same issue. It’s kind an unstable. let me report after I try MIUI rom.

  107. Hi Jayce, Ive been running android on nand for some weeks now, i decided to change to a sense build and the rom chef’s instructions were to flash a 130m cwm partition, but when i go into usb flasher and i connect my usb, it doesnt recognise it, it just says
    USB Flasher mode
    Wait USB…

    Ive flashed different system partitions in magldr before when changing roms, and they have worked fine
    Ive tried using mass storage and that reads my hd2 perfectly well.
    Im so confused…

      • I have it installed but i am running windows in safe mode, because im getting the blue screen of death when i boot windows normally, could this be the problem?
        Also, im getting an imac in a couple of weeks, will i be able to flash roms and cmw partitions on there?

        • Most of the stuffs are disabled in Windows safe mode. No wonder your phone can’t be detected. And sorry to inform that MAC OS is not support but Windows on MAC yes.

  108. hey jayce,
    I followed the mentioned procedure and android is working fine… however i cannot hear anything when anyone calls me or even when i call anyone, there is no sound…
    Help me fix this……..

  109. I downloaded everything i needed. i was at the boot menu selected 4 and it did what it needed too but now its sitting at the DFT screen. and doing nothing it has been like this for 20+ mins.. what should i do?..

  110. Hey, i use a HTC HD2 locked to O2 in the UK. When i enter the serial number it says “Sorry, this software download is not suitable for your device.” What should i do? 🙁

  111. Hello again, will this work on any sim card? I’ve installed it and its working great! Thanks Jayce!! 😀

  112. Hey Jayce, android is working great but the only problem i am having is that the lock screen wont seem to respond when i slid it, i have to tap it many times before i can unlock it and another problem i am having is that my sound just randomly stops working, NO SOUND AT ALL!!, and I have to restart my phone and it works fine but then it happens again, no sound what so ever, not even when I lock the phone and unlock it, it doesnt give the little notification sound or anything and it freezes again, please help. 🙁 I really dont want to get another rom, I have a lot of important stuff on it for work, and I finally perfected my phone with all the stuff i want. But the freezing of the lock screen is killing me.

    • This is ROM issue. Can’t help much if you don’t want to change to another ROM. Backup all your stuff with Titanium Backup first before install new ROM.

  113. Hi Jayce,
    I’m using MAGLDR v1.13 with Desire HD v1.3 ROM.
    All the steps were followed but I’ve a major issue now is that it always hang during startup.
    Hope you can help me on this.
    Thank you.

      • Hi Jayce,

        Thanks for the advice and my HD2 is now working fine with Android after I reflash it with another ROM.

        BTW, just to check with you whether you are aware about the ‘Low Disk Space’ issue with HTC Desire and if you are aware of any solution to this problem?

        Thanks again.


  114. I wasn’t my phone to boot to nand android once i turn on my phone. Wll i did what you did but when i take the sd card out but when I turned it on it didnt go to the menu . It just said Botting NAND TO ANDROID .

  115. Jayce thanks for everything. I need help though. After installation finished magldr automatically booted and went to the screen you have at 2:40 in your video. It says “load initrd.gz Load done! 123456 GO GO GO!” and is just stuck there. The DFT logo doesn’t pop up and Android doesn’t boot up. Thanks in advance for the help, my phone is useless without it.

      • It says “ANDROID LOAD at 11800000 from NAND” in the first two lines. Its literally the exact same screen you have at 2:40 in your video, it just stops at GO GO GO and doesn’t show the DFT logo or actually boot up Android. It just stops there.

        • Look like a bad installation in this case. Try to reinstall Android ROM again. By the way, did you install all the stuffs (same version) like mine in the video?

          • Sorry man, I’m not nearly as tech savvy as you are so you’re gonna have to help me out. When you say “did you install all the stuffs like min in the video?” I don’t quite know what you mean. I’ve followed your links to download HSPL3 and MAGLDR and they both installed successfully. I also downloaded and installed the version of Android NAND that you link in this article. You want me to try installing the “DFT_LEO_NAND_Android.rar” file again? I’ll double check that.

            Thanks for the help

          • Ok I just installed it again and it says the installation was successful. After the installation the phone resets like it does in your video. MAGLDR comes up, but instead of going to the main menu (where you have 10 options or whatever) like it does in your video it automatically tries to boot Android from NAND. Then it just shows the same screen like I described earlier.

          • Sorry to reply again. I figured it out. There was an issue with some phones getting stuck on that screen when using MAGLDR 1.11 to flash Android NAND. I just updated ROM to MAGLDR 1.13 and Android is currently running on my phone. Thank you so much.

            God Bless

    Gebruik volume knop omhoog omhoog te gaan tot en met 9. Reset.

    tot stap 13 ging het goed, toen ik hem weer aan probeerde te zetten deed de telefoon alleen maar trillen, blijvend trillen met zwart beeld.
    Zelfs als ik de acculader aansluit nadat de batterij eruit is geweest gaat die gelijk weer trillen?
    raar ik kan nu niks meer met de telefoon
    weet iemand raad? kan iemand mij helpen?

    mvg Emile

  117. Hi Joyce,

    I have installed CDMA WM ROM with my GSM Phone by mistake, which bricked and unable to bring bootloader. I have contacted ebay guy to unbrick and gave me with working (unbrick) WM6.5 and touch screen was working, But color become less color than actual one. At this time my mobile bootloader looks like below

    PB81120 SS-B3
    SPL-2.08.HSPL 8G XE
    RIFFBOX 0X05
    Resurrected 0X50

    Now, I installed Android 2.3.4. It works few hours then stop work my touch screen at all. I can’t use anymore without touch screen. I thought something wrong with my Android installation, I reversed back with WM6.5 and uninstall HSPL as well. when i boot WM6.5 , i can see the first setup screen apears and touch screen did not work at all. Now my my bootloaders shows me as below

    PB81120 SS-B3
    SPL-2.08.0000 8G XE
    MICROP(LED) 0X05
    C0TTULA 0X50 <— missing now, Actual before brick

    Do you think ,is the problem with Hardware or ebay guy made mistake or android might have screwed my device ? Please help me rectivfy this issue to bring back to work without hangin / Touch screen should work and also color need to bring back Actual color

    OR Shall i send this phone with HTC (still have valid warrenty period), so that they can replace my touch screen problem or my warrent become void since the ebay guyopen and riffbox ?

    Please advise me, i am very tired of doing may research on these problem. !!

            • Try to load ‘Red, Green, Blue and White’ bootloader directly. Then connect USB cable. It should change to USB from Serial. Then install MAGLDR.

                  • hey jayce as i seen videos about how to install magldr on every video there is one thing which i notice after double click on romupdatutility then it shows the window..on top left it show pda phone rom update utility doing next & angain next it shows update & image version 1.66.707.1..jayce i want to ask that 1.66.707.1 is the rom..if yes then my rom is (70315)wwe..may be thats why i cant able to install magldr..pls clear my doubt that what is 1.66.707.1..

    1) holding down & up volume kay & press power button


    2) Menu > All Settings > System > Clear Storage..Enter 1234 Tap YES to perform the reset, or tap NO to cancel the reset

  143. hi joiye

    I have htc hd 2 and it running on NAND android 2.2, the problem is that all the internal storage is full and I feel it so complicated while surfing or browsing on site through this mobile. I really desparate to look for the way how to cover back, rather the internal storage is full. could you help me please in such a way???

    NB: if i go any further by deleting through “setting–> application—>manage application” then, it is only showing the internal data application which is more or less having a very less significant volume rather than a warning of full internal memroy. that is way, i seek your help.

    many thanks


    HTC HD 2

  144. Hey Jayce… you have been awesome… i got an hd2 with wm6.5 last july… stopped using it in january and was going to give it away….. until i found your post (and some others) about the NAND.. awesome info.. thanks for putting out the time to help…..!!

  145. hi jayce..i made my htc hd2 a nand android..but why i can’t download using android market???it always say that download is paused and don’t download anymore…and one more thing…when i execute the NAND file,i ended at step no. 13.. it opened to HTC directly and didnt have the chance to choose from the bootloader again..and i wasn’t abale to do the auto boot step because of doesn’t have the choices..just directly HTC.. I would highly appreciate your response..thank you very much..

    • Sorry, I am not sure about Android Market issue. Try other Android ROM if this problem still exist. As for choosing booloader, just hold power button (don’t let go) when turn on your phone. It will load into MAGLDR.

  146. Hi There, I get as far as flash usb, but then receive error messages Error Description: EnterBootloader missing Info: .\RSPL\BootLoader.cpp (176) and Error Description: USB init failed Info: .\RSPL\RSPL.cpp (1198)

    Can you help

  147. i for some reason cannot get the phone started after go go go ….. its stuck there .. please help… i installed windows phone 7 and it worked , but when i try it with the android rom it gets stuck at go go go .

  148. Hi Joyce,

    I followed your instructions and installed the NAND android in to my new HTC HD2 mobile by following your videos. Thank you very much. But i am facing one problem now.

    After installing the NAND android successfully, i created a gmail account(which is mandatory to use android market) to test whether everything is working properly or not. After verifying that everythink is OK, i tried to do a factory reset (which is the only way to delete the default gmail account from the phone and i need to do it since it is not my phone). It says it will reboot and while rebooting it goes to the boot loader(by DFT) and auto loads the NAND android again.

    So is there a way to do a factory reset the NAND android?

  149. Thaks Jayce,

    I tried it and it is sowing the option menu. But instead of installing the ROM again, i selected, Hard Reset and it is working(Right now), are there any side effects for this.

    plz help me its most urgent

  157. Hello, great walkthrough. I came across a used HD2 for relatively cheap and didn’t realize this was such a versatile phone. I think I like it better than my Sensation 4G. Anyways, just had a question for you. Once I finished installing MAGLRD and the same build of FROYO that you used, my phone boots up directly to Android. How can I get the MAGLRD menu again? Am I supposed to boot up automatically to Android NAND? I didn’t get to change the settings in MAGLRD autoboot settings. It did it by itself. Is this what is supposed to happen? How do I boot up into MAGLRD again, in case I want to flash to another Android Build?

  158. hey jayce! is there any way by which i can convert my phone back to windows at the MALGDR screen ??
    my phone doesn’t load to the home screen. it directly goes to the MALGDR when turned on. (without pressing the button for long) please help !!

  159. hi jayce good day to you, i’m having a problem downloading an application to my android market, everytime i tried to download apps there is always a prompt that says “soory! the application Market(process has stopped unexpectedly. pls try again.” then i’m trying many times but w/ the same result, but i didn’t experience this before, is there any problem with my market or my htc hd2? my wifi connection is good, please help thanks Jayce, God bless u 🙂

  160. hi jace, i can still use my internet though, but when i’m using the market to download some applications, it always stop…one more thing, i dunno how to reinstall Android ROM, pls help, thanks in advance…

  161. Dear Jayce,

    I’ve been following your instructions for installation and I got stuck. I’ve successfully installed all of the preqs, and went on with the guide. I’ve managed to fix one smaller problem with USB by reading the posts (As you said you have to uncheck allow USB connection in ActiveSync). Then i launched the DAF file and it started installing. At one point an error occured, and it stopped.

    Now my phone starts loading and the DFT logo appears and then in goes in constant craze… HTC logo then loading, then DFT, constantly!

    What can I do to finish with installation of android?

    Thanks in advance

  162. I’m sorry i didn’t copy it. All I got now is the HTC loading screen and DFT welcome screen changing without the phone actually turning on. I think it loaded android partially and then interrupted. Do you have any suggestions or hints on what to do?
