So I went to that cell-hell-mall and change the newly bought digitizer (which I don't need actually since the LCD was now broken too) to a LCD+digitizer combo ($21).
Then I thought, why repair myself - and went to a repair place on the same floor. They quoted me $13 for the change and told me will take an hour. After 30 Minutes I came back and the told my my LCD has no 'touch' - so back to that shop and changed the combo again. I guess they gave me knowingly a defect one. Boy I was glad I opted for the repair on spot option! Next time I will just give it to the repair place, cost is the same anyway.
After another 30 Minutes I got a working phone back, now T-Mobile branded. But it works. So far all functions seem fine.
HD2 is a pain in the *** to repair since they used lots of glue and lots of really sticky tape.
BTW, that repair place a parts mart is in Shenzhen, China.
I forgot another main issue to stick to the HD2: The "pdaimatejam ROM" has Nokia flavor. So I get also Nokia drive - which I totally love.
