I've had a bad experience
with the latest rom from Miri :
--> "Miri HD2 WM6.5.X 23568 Sense 2.5 V16.0 WithSwype
that I found on HTCPEDIA.com .
(FYI, I live in Belgium, the Dutch-speaking part, but bought a HD2 via the french website LDLC-pro.com, thus receiving a full French device, I installed the HSPL2 to be able to flash some custom Multi-Lang rom. Miri's was the first I tried)
all went well at first:
I configured my Outlook Exchange settings and started the Exchange Synchronisation.
then suddenly my wife called me on my HD2 and when I wanted to answer the call ...
-->the whole damn phone just froze !!!
Frozen on the "end-call" screen, and not even possible to turn of the phone in a normal way.
So, the only thing I could think of was to remove the battery.
I waited a few minutes.
When I put the battery back in and restarted the phone, guess what ...
... stuck on the famous white screen with green HTC logo
Dammn, stukck, stuck, stuck
Luckily for me, and I am a complete nooby on these wm rom flashing stuff, Luckily there is this fantastique XDA forum, and I soon found several posts about this problem, well actually the symptom ("boot stuck on White screen")
I went to Bootloader and connected trough USB to my PC.
As explaine in the forum, I first tried with just flashing the Radio, but that didn't help.
I then thought, well what the hell, phone is broken, just let me try to re-flash with a full Stock ROM that I'm sure is compatible with my device !
I re-flashed the Official FRENCH 1.66.406.1 ROM upgrade, via Bootloader and USB connection, and ... YES, IT WORKED !!!
Yihaaa, i'm saved, otherwise my wife was going to kill me for braking a brand new 500 euro smartphone !
But, there I was again stuck with the French rom, while I am dutch-speaking and prefer my phones in English !
So, with the HSPL2 still in place, I re-re-flashed using the Official WWE
ROM 1.66.405.2 upgrade from HTC website
==>thanks to the thread "[TUT] Flashing your First GSM 512LEO Rom (For Noobs)
" for the serial number that allowe d me to download this.
So a BIG BIGGER BIGGEST
thank you to all of you writers of this usefull info.
you really saved my life and made my day :D
P.S. Now I have another question:
This was my first and bad experience with a Custom or Cooked ROM, so I am a little bit affraid now.
Can someone suggest a 100% reliable custom ROM
with cute goodies ?
--> must be compatible with the HD2 T8585 (512 MB ROM);
-->--> HSPL2 1.66 EX
-->-->--> Radio 15.30.50.07U_2.06.51.07
Thanks in advance,
