HTC HD2 Gets A Fully Functional Android Froyo ROM

The HTC HD2 was among the first few phones in the mobile market to feature the 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, and 512MB of RAM. It was also among the first few phones to feature a mammoth 4.3-inch screen. However, theHTC HD2 phone was let down by its OS Windows Mobile 6.5. Many people, who purchased the HD2 at that time, expected the phone to be upgraded to Windows Phone 7. However, Microsoft said that the HD2 won’t be getting the WP7 update, and dashed the hopes of many HD2 owners.

Nevertheless, the modding community did not lose hope and started porting Android to HD2. Earlier, many Android ROMs were available for the HD2 but they had some deal-breaking issues like no 3G, camera issues etc. Now a fully functional Froyo based ROM for the HD2 is available on the internet. The folks over at HDBlog.it have even posted a video of the ROM running on the HD2.

I will surely suggest all HD2 owners to dump Windows Mobile 6.5 running on their device, and shift to this Android Froyo based ROM.
