My mom's HD2 is running wp7 I don't know the name of it but it don't work too good no market, she can't get texts because of a space issue and apparently she can't set up her internet for Simple mobile..
Now we're stuck she loves wp7 so we found a Tiger rom but we get an error every time (something about sd card init)?
She wants either WP7 (working) or Android
So far we have
HSPL or whatever and a 5.51 radio
and I cannot figure out if we can even flash a rom because everything says 2.08 and I don't want to brick her only phone.
We are super lost I saw the noob video and yes I am I noob but I just want her phone working by tonight shes in school and I don't know a thing about Flashing and I don't understand none of this I have a Samsung Infuse.
Help us please I searched all on google about going from Wp7 to android and I could not get my answer.
I would THANK anyone who offers some kinda help tonight.
Sounds to me like somebody has been messing with moms phone and screwed it up
Mate...there are so many posts on flashing what and in what order in this section alone it is pretty pointless me typing them out again.
But in direct response to the issues you mentioned.
SD card . You need to make sure your SD card is clean and formatted (FAT 32)before you flash a WP7 rom. Unlike other phone OS's , WP7 has to have a good working SD card in order to work.
As many members (including me) have recommended in the past. The best starting point is to TASK29 it (wipe) and install an original WP6.5 rom first.
That way you can make sure all the hardware is working properely.
Then go download all the software you need ( HSPL 2.08, MAGDLR, Radio, Rom of choice) Plenty of links scattered all over this forum.
And remember to always hard reset your phone after you have flashed the ROM !!! Not doing this can give all kinds of grief.
Your moms market place probably isnt working because the phone isnt activated with micro soft. Loads of threads on activation. take a few mins to read them.
There are other markets ( for apps) that don't require activation. Some roms included them "in" the ROM.
