Hi guys,

Just wanted to share this: (Uploaded by SquithyX from the Sensation Forum) ---> HTC Sync for Mac!

Was using doubletwist to sync my music and all onto my Desire HD but the lack of podcast subscriptions is annoying. HTC Sync was previously a windows only tool.

HTC has bundled HTC Mac Sync with the Rhyme and Sensation XL phones since launch (Oct/Nov) yet has not updated their website about this. As such, you can only get the Mac version here for now.

I can confirm that it works on Mac OSX 10.5 and greater and works with Desire HD. Make sure you have USB debugging on otherwise HTC Sync won't detect your phone.

1) Install .dmg file
2) Run HTC Sync
3) Connect phone via USB (make sure USB debugging is ticked --> Settings>Applications>Development>USB Debugging must be checked. Just to be sure, untick and tick again)
4) When prompted with the USB Connection Type, select HTC Sync. (If not prompted, go to Settings>Connect to PC>Change option to Prompt when USB plugged in).

Hope it helps. It now syncs the following:
1) Music --> now syncs from itunes playlist
2) Gallery
3) Calendar
4) Bookmarks
5) People (contacts)
6) Document

P.S. I am using stock rom, 3.13.707.4, radio is the 12.65 variant.

It definitely works with Desire HD...I am using a desire HD. It, of course, does not support non-sense roms.

It should work with all HTC stock roms on all HTC devices... Wonder why HTC doesn't have this on their website...only the PC version.

This is pull from sensation XL sd cards when they were bought.
