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
