Windows Phone is not my cup of tea. Well, it still can’t impress me. Still lack of apps and games when compare to iOS and Android. Maybe I will back to Windows when Microsoft combines both Windows for desktop and phone into one OS. Until then, Android is still my top choice. But this may not apply to some of you, just me. So there are Windows Phone 7.8 ROMs (still no public WP8 ROM yet) for HTC HD2. Pdaimatejam ROM is based on WP7.8 OS 7.10.8862.144. Basically, it is ported from Nokia Lumia 900. So you can see Nokia applications (Nokia Drive, Maps, Music) and features there. Windows Phone is all from Nokia mainly now, right? And the very important stuff ~ it has automatic activation code for Windows Live.

Energy ROM is my favourite custom Windows Mobile 6.5 ROM. But it is not updated for long long time like most of other WinMo 6.5 custom ROM. However, there is one custom Windows Mobile 6.5 ROM is still being updated in year 2013. Yes, Artemis Windows Mobile 6.5 ROM for HTC HD2 is the one. It is based on HTC LEO-S 3.14 (Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 AKU 184.108.40.206 – Build 29077) and HTC Manila Core v2.5.20221228 (HTC Sense 2022). And supports multiple languages like English, French, German, Italian, Greek, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Dutch, Norwegian, Swedish and Denmark. And of course, it has lot of goodies and nice features added in. If you still in love with Windows Mobile 6.5, you can try it out…
Rest in peace HTC… Oh, I mean my HTC HD2. Good bye, my very first smartphone. HTC HD2 was a great piece of hardware back in year 2009 (check out my HTC HD2 unboxing). It is the best developer friendly smartphone ever. Yes, you can run stock Windows Mobile 6.5, Windows Phone 7, Android, Ubuntu and Meego on HTC HD2. I don’t think there will be a phone that can do so in the future.
Mozilla Firefox was my favourite browser for years. Love to use it compare to feature-less Microsoft Internet Explorer. However, it was replaced by faster Google Chrome lately. And now Mozilla is going to fight back with Firefox OS. Firefox OS is an open platform that fosters greater participation in the value chain. Built entirely using HTML5 and other open Web standards and free from the rules and restrictions of existing proprietary platforms. Want to try it? Today is your lucky day if you happen have a HTC HD2 with you. Yes, there is Firefox OS for the legendary HTC HD2 ~ HD2Gecko ROM.
Wow… The legendary HTC HD2 is still alive and kicking. HTC HD2 may not able to get Windows Phone 8 Apollo update. But you can enjoy WP7.8 ROM (OS version 7.10.8835.35) on HTC HD2 now. And it is fully unlocked. Of course it is loaded with other goodies like Ultrashot Root Manager, WM Device Center, USB Video, Nokia Camera Extras, Nokia Drive… Personally, I still prefer Android over Windows Phone. But there is lot of HTC HD2 owners who love Windows Phone will like to download and install this WP7.8 ROM for their HTC HD2.
