Default Htc hd2 android for dummies

OK.....People on and creators of this forum automatically assume that everyone knows what all of these terms and different words are? Speaking for myself only, I am patent my self as being a pretty smart guy I am in college and I have a pretty decent GPA, but I play football and study marketing. I dont know nor do I have to figure out how to do flash my phone etc. Is there not a cab or a simple way to get android on the HD2. I currently have the Samsung Vibrant and HD2 and are torn between the 2. I want the HD2 hardware but like the vibrant software. Is there not a simple way or can I pay someone in the Dallas TX area to put a WORKING version of Android on my phone. Or is there a simple way step by step broken down lamest terms way to do this. I am overwhelmed with all of the stuff on this website. I know i can probably sit down and read and figure out how to do all of this but I dont have the time nor patience. I JUST WANT THE WORKING ANDROID ON MY DEVICE. CAN SOME ONE PLEASE HELP ME???????????i WILL PAY SOMEONE

At this time, Android on the HD2 is neither worth your time, or patience. The reason I say that is because pretty much every build is nothing like a native device; it will have bugs, freezes, etc.

Either you invest some time, and a little patience, or just spend the money on Android native.

Good luck!

Well you should reconsider the "pretty smart guy" part.
There is a stickied thread ★★★The Definitve Guide To Android On HTC HD2 ★★★ which cant be easier to understand.
If you cant make it following this super easy guide, you should buy native ANDROID device or just use your winmo.

For being "a pretty smart" guy you've got horrible spelling and grammar.
You say you are patient but contradict yourself in the same post by saying "I dont have the time nor patience."

I didn't know any of terms used here last week, but as someone said earlier the instructions xda provides is more than enough to understand whats going on. Just use your brain and read. Otherwise, just get a real android phone.

Actually, grammar and spelling is my thing. I'm a court reporter, and when I see your post it drives me bananas. You should seriously focus more on your schooling.

So, let me get this straight...
You want android on your phone, but you don't want to do anything? Think about that for a second.

Nobody here can help you because you are basically asking someone to physically do it for you. The guides provided on this website are more than enough.

As I stated before, I didn't even know what a ROM was last week. If you are so impatient, then just move on. This is not for the computer illiterate.

First thing I'm doing to say: Don't rush into it. I've put down some simple steps, but learn a bit about each stage before you do it. I'm not going to accept responsibility if you do something wrong.

Step 1: HSPL your device. Follow this guide with this HSPL.

Step 2: Flash a radio. I'm using 2.12.50.02_2.

Step 3: Download an Android build. I use Darkstone Froyo v1 with Cotulla's latest zImage (as of 03/08 [DD/MM])..

Step 4: Stick the build on your SD card, and replace the old zImage with the new one.

Step 5: Via WM, run clrcad (nothing will show up, it's normal) and then haret.
