HTC HD2 is a great phone. You can run stock Windows Mobile 6.5 on it. Err… WinMo 6.5 is a little bit outdated. No worry, you can install custom ROMs like Android and Windows Phone 7. Personally, I don’t recommend WP7 unless you need to use a killer app only build for it (but I doubt that). So Android OS is the one that you should get. And here are the latest and greatest Android ROM based on Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread that you should try.
Latest build is always the best. Lot of bugs fixes and improvements… Here you are ~ Ultimate Droid 3.3 from Crawlingcity. Ultimate Droid is one of the Android ROMs that I like. It is fast and smooth. Crawlingcity always updated this ROM based on latest UD build and kernel. And this build is based on Android Gingerbread 2.3.3 and using Tytung r9 Kernel.
As expected, lot of ROM chefs started to release a new version of their ROM after Bluetooth battery drain was fixed. Tytung r8.2 Kernel is the first one that I found to include this Bluetooth battery drain fix patch. And Ultimate Droid 3.1.1 v3 is using this kernel. As usual, most of the latest ROMs are using Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread. Same apply to Ultimate Droid 3.1.1. By the way, this new version is using Perspicuus Theme by Dellacorte.
JDMS Ultimate v1.6 is the build that I am using daily. It is based on Ultimate Droid 2.5 Froyo edition. And Ultimate Droid 3 is based on Gingerbread. XDA developer, crawlingcity is back to the XDA finally. Here is his latest great Android build ~ Ultimate Droid 3.0.1 RAM edition. It is based on Android 2.3.2 Gingerbread and using Rafpigna 1.7 Kernel.
Ultimate Droid 2.5 is not a stranger for me. I am using JDMS Ultimate v1.6.2 build which is based on Ultimate Droid 2.5. Both of them are based on Android 2.2.1 Froyo. But Ultimate Droid 2.5 is using Rafpigna 1.8 OC Kernel while JDMS Ultimate is using Hastarin 8.6N Kernel. How does Ultimate Droid 2.5 for HTC HD2 which cooked by XDA Developer, crawlingcity performs?
