Windows mobile phone series 7...

So we went trought the weeks, we heard all the talk, we saw all the pretty images and videos, we really wanted it... and now almost everyone hates is... :P

however, 1 thing i heard people say OVER and OVER again on sites like pocketnow.com engadget.com ang gizmodo.com is: Dont worry, XDA will have a custom rom for the HD2 in days when its out!!

I always found that strange to hear, i mean the android development has been underway for over a year now and just recently has netripper made some breaktroughs..

so (i think you know what i'm getting at..) will this really be as easy as everyone claims? Isnt it a whole new system, build from the ground up? what are your opinions

My guess is that the HD2 is likely HTCs dev platform for wp7. If that's true I think we'll see it eventually.

if a development rom exists highly likely
if there's not then it may not be possible for the hd2 handset...I would prefer to think there is a development rom

emulated rom is for x86 processors
a developer rom means one that is made for the htc touch hd 2

from what i've read, they are indeed trying to do something about the emulator dump, anything. but mainly waiting, for an actual rom.

I guess it's all down to drivers and how similar WinPhoS is to 6.5.x. I mean if it's practically the same, maybe the 6.5.x Hardware drivers will work with a bit of tweaking.

Huh?? I never saw that video thats crazy, what the hell were they thinking? also, didnt htc tell us like a year ago that we WOULD get the upgrade..

anyways, dont really wanna go off track here, there are already 34,600 threads on the HD2 not getting the upgrade, i want this one to be about how likely a custom rom would be
