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

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?


  • 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.

Bye bye Android 2.2 Froyo and hello Windows Phone 7…


  1. 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.

  2. 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?

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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

    • 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.

  6. Hi Guys,

    I now tried to flash the wm7 on my T-mobile HD2. I see that there is a Error [262] Update Error. I have a question. Will this not work for T-Mobile HD2? If yes, then whats the other alternative or if this is just hapening with my phone….how can i fix this an upgrade my phone to windows 7. 🙁 🙁 🙁


  7. To be very clear, I have upgraded my T-mobilr HD2 with the ROM version 3.14.531.1 few months back. Please assist me on how to fix the Error 262 error and get Wm7 on my phone. Please Please. I have been waiting for this release for quite a sometime and this doesn;t seem to work 🙁

  8. 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,


  9. 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?



  10. 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?

    • 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…

    • 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!!!!

    I got everything installed and everything looks great. but I dont have any data connection. When I check Cellular under settings, it both the Data Connection and 3G are on.

  19. 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.

    Any ideas?
    tks – Jeff

  20. Thank you Jayce, I understand now.

    I am currently running SPL-2.10. I will see if I can figure out how to downgrade.

    Thank you again!

                      My Current ROM Details are:
                      OS Version: 5.2.21913
                      Manila Version: 2.5.20181527

                      (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)…

    • 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?

      • dw fixed it and installed, thanks alot mate for this, i was annoyed with myself after i didnt wait for the htc hd7 but this has made it all better 🙂

  36. 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!

  37. 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?


      • 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


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

  65. 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 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.


          • 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.

  79. Hi J!
    Followed your instuctions and installed Windows 7 on my HD2 and it worked out fine.
    Just a “minor” problem! When I reboot the phone and get asked to enter code for the SIM-card the numeric keypad on the screen doesn’t work. ;o(

  80. 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.


  81. yeah i done that and it brings me on the the 3 coloured screen but i want to get on to the other bootloader from which i can install windows 7 because when i turn my phone on it goes to the htc logo and it stays there even tho i hold the power button like it says to do on step 13, i have done all the other steps sucessfully but this one isnt working,

  82. hi jayce, im having problems with win 7 mobile after installation phone reboots i get black screen with htc logo on and that is as far as it goes tried hard reset and soft reset, battery pull also checked radio and hspl3 versions and all are correct….please help

  83. I tried to install WP7 on my hd2. I ve done all the installations as they should. when the phone restarted I got the following message: Booting WPH, WPH load, 1EFatal hit 1.
    Please help, what should I do???

  84. thx for the stuff.. im having a data connection problem though. after the installation wasnt able to use the web, email or anything that requires data services without wifi.. any ideas?? thx again!

  85. Hello Jayce,

    How can I install Windows 7.5 (aka Mango) on my HTC HD2. Currently I have Windows Mobile 6.5. where can I get the latest bootloader and WP 7.5 to install it.

    Plus how to enable Xbox Live after installation?

    Thanks a lot!

  89. Hey jayce ooi u should put up a new tutorial for the wp7 mango, i tried the yukimod one wp7 very unstable, all they said is the forum is to change the class of the sd card to class 4 or 6… luckily i didn’t change it coz now i using hd20/ dft mango. very very good and stable . plus this rom already hacked no nid to cab like yuki. About the registration code or activation code , u can get from here , click on General Inquiries about Microsoft Products and Services or Genuine Advantage Questions to activate online chat with staff, just type out ur problem lke htc hd7 activation code needed to access window live acc. the staff probabbly will generate a new code for u, coz i alrd activate two of my hd2, cheer~

  90. 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?

    • Press volume down button (don’t let go) and power on your phone.
      It will load into bootloader.
      You should get ‘Red, Green, Blue and White’ screen with SPL-2.08.HSPL.
      Connect USB cable from PC to phone.
      Open DFT_LEO70_RELEASE.rar with 7-Zip.
      Copy LEO70_ROM, MAGLDR112 folders and readme.txt to desktop.
      Enter MAGLDR112 folder.
      Right click on ROMUpdateUtility and select ‘Run as administrator’.
      Click ‘Yes’ if User Access Control prompt up.
      Follow onscreen instructions to install.
      Phone will be rebooted after installation finished.

        • 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 🙂

          • 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.

  91. Press volume down button (don’t let go) and power on your phone.
    It will load into bootloader.
    You should get ‘Red, Green, Blue and White’ screen with SPL-2.10.HSPL.
    Connect USB cable from PC to phone.
    but my phone doesnot shows usb in bootloader

  92. 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

      • 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,

          • 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?

  93. 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?

  94. Jayce.. I know you don’t use Windows Phone much on HD2 but only test…. Just wondering if you or anyone knows if the wired-headset issue (basically cannot call when wired headset connected) has any fixes..

    Is the Headset OK on calls in android? Mango?

  95. Dear Jayce,

    I have using HTC HD2, How can I install Windows 7.5 (aka Mango) on my HTC HD2. Currently I have Windows Mobile 6.5. where can I get the latest bootloader and WP 7.5 to install it. if i change it after. it is possible to return it back to original version to windows 6.5? Please kindly help me.
