Android 2.2 Froyo Gets on HTC HD2 with New NAND ROM

Anyone who bought an HTC HD2 might feel a little irked that Android and Windows phone are getting all the love now, leaving their Windows Mobile 6.5 device with admittedly great specs out to dry. Luckily, one of the folks at XDA Developers has made a fresh ROM that puts Android 2.2 Froyo with Sense onto the HTC HD2. This is the first NAND Android ROM to be cooked up, though we’ve seen other Android ROMs on the HD2 before. This particular one emulates the stock HTC Desire ROM as closely as possible.

The HTC HD2 has a 1 GHz processor, massive 4.3-inch WVGA display, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G, and a 5 megapixel camera with flash. Windows Mobile 6.5 may be enough for some folks, but there are many more who would prefer that it run something a little more modern.

I’m sure our resident Android editor, Blake, will be happy to weigh in on the technical nitty-gritty of this ROM later this afternoon, but the main thing here is that you won’t need Haret to boot the OS – the HD2 will just go right into Froyo.  Full instructions and download links can be found at the via link below.

    HD2 now has Gingerbread loading from NAND, thanks to M-Deejay! Missing GPS and Camcorder but otherwise a solid build.
