DISCLAIMER
Flashing radio is A VERY RISKY OPERATION and may brick your device if something goes wrong; you may also not be able to flash a previous version if the newer one isn't performing well.

S-OFF bootloader is required to successfully flash any radio. The stock bootloader doesn't support fastboot commands.
Radio S-OFF is highly reccomended, expecially if you're willing to try the latest radio files (> 26.04.02.17). By being Radio S-OFF you'll have the chance to restore previous ROMs and Radio files.

RIL - RADIO INTERFACE LIBRARIES
What is a RIL? Quoted from jkoljo's [RIL] Radio Interface Libraries thread: RIL is a library that acts as a bridge between your device's phone functions and the radio firmware in your device's communications chip (radio). Matching radio and RIL is always a good combination when you think of signal stability and battery consumption. That is why you should flash a matching RIL when you flash a new radio.

Flashing RILs only work for Sense based ROMs and CM7 ROMs > nightly built 57. ATM MIUI doesn't support HTC RILs.

Please refer to the [RIL] Radio Interface Libraries Thread for a comprehensive list of all the RILs released for the Desire HD

QUICK FLASH PACKAGES FOR WINDOWS
Quick Flash Packages are zip packages which will flash the desired radio in a simple and easy way.
QFP are intended for users who have already flashed a radio before and know how to handle the whole procedure and the risks involved.
During the flashing procedure, all the steps are being explained and the user will need to confirm each action.
If you should experience any weird behaviour or should get any error response by your command shell, please close the window and report it to me.

[REQUIREMENTS]
- Your device is turned on and is not in bootloader or recovery mode
- Battery is at least at 50%
- HTC drivers or Google Drivers installed and working
- Your device is recognized under Device Manager;
- USB Debugging Mode is enabled;
- Radio S-OFF has been performed;
- ENG Hboot is installed.

If you're not sure or you do not meet them, please follow the "How to flash a radio.IMG - tried and tested" guide by leith51 and flash the radio by following the steps suggested by that guide.

[HOW TO INSTALL]
Unpack the zip folder to your desktop folder and run the QuickRadioInstall.cmd script which will start the flashing procedure.
Follow the steps shown on screen.

[FIRST RUN]
- QFP will first check if your device is recognized by ADB. This will make sure the drivers are installed and working.
- QFP will then reboot your device into Fastboot/bootloader mode
- QFP will then flash the radio, showing the results
- Once done, QFP will reboot your device

[LATEST RADIO RELEASES]

Hello there! As of 8-27-2012 I have been chosen to update this thread as Drakknar no longer
owns this device. Without further ado, here are the latest radios for Desire HD. I will
try my best and keep you up-to-date with everything that's going on with the scene.

HOW TO UPGRADE - Bootloader Method - Considered the Easiest
Requirements: S-OFF
- Download the radio file
- Rename it to PD98IMG.zip (this is important!)
- Move the file to your SD-card root (not in any folder)
- Download MD5 Checksum Checker: http://download.cnet.com/MD5-Checker...-10410639.html
- Make sure that the MD5 provided with the download link matches with your downloaded file!
^ If not performed, you might risk bricking your device!
- If they match, you are ready to go! Power off your device.
- Hold the volume-down and powerbutton simultaneously
^ This will boot you into Fastboot/Bootloader
- You should see a screen with options
- Navigate to Bootloader (if not already in it) and press the powerbutton
- Wait for the flashing process to begin (it does automatically!).
- Reboot your phone and you are done!

July 2012: Radio 12.69.60.29_26.17.14.11_M - AT&T Inspire 4G 3.20.502.52 (Latest)
Radio.img MD5 Checksum: fefbcf7a411df7df31fea65417d92f36
Mirror: http://fbe.am/b95.
RIL: http://d-h.st/Kq4 [**]
Feedback (Northern Europe): Better reception indoors than with the 26.16/26.14, HSDPA
speeds work and display correctly. Download speeds are a little low compared to upload speeds
but can be fixed with this application. Used so far: approximately 5 months.

Please note: As it seems, this downgrading from this radio might be bugged.

[*]: Recommended download
[**]: Still untested, be careful before flashing

[ALERTS]
If you are willing to mirror these files, please make sure the MD5s match!
Unfortunately not all of us seem to have a habit of verifying the checksums..
Also remember to provide checksums when posting download links!

[DISCLAIMER]
Refer to the original post.

Thanks to JSLEnterprises for pointing me to 26.17.14.11_M Radio download.

Correct me if im wrong anyone...

ROM is the operating system(Android) , its the image that you place on the flash memory that contains the various parts of the OS including the kernel.

RADIO in your phone is another computer in its own right and has its own CPU and RAM controls the phone. Controls Main phone functions a radio is a number of "radios" really GSM- Phone, GPS, Bluetooth, WIFI, its seperate because you cant have a rogue application effecting the performance of the phone. you cant have some live wallpaper causeing the phone to drop out because it is hogging CPU cycles!

& then the Kernel is the core piece of code that boots on the hardware and then loads everything else, the kernel boots then runs init, which can do several things.
