HTC HD2 First WP7 Based ROM Released
By on January 13th, 2011

Rejoice all HTC HD2 owners! A few days ago the HD2 got its first NAND based Android 2.2 ROM and today, the first WP7 based ROM for the handset has been released. The DFT (Dark Forces Team) has released the first WP7 ROM for the HD2 for public consumption. HD2 owners can install this WP7 ROM on their handset and play around with WP7 to get a feel of it.

Nearly all the hardware of the phone is working smoothly on this ROM including Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and multi-touch gestures like pinch-to-zoom. Users can also sync the handset with the Zune software bundled with WP7 devices.

The performance of the ROM is also very snappy with the first boot taking only around 20 seconds. There is a twist in the tale though. HD2 owners won’t be able to access the Windows Live services which can be a huge disappointment for many.

HD2 owners can download the WP7 ROM and read the steps on how to flash it on their handset here.

Update: HD2 owners can now get Live services working under this WP7 ROM. Click here to know more.
