It's about 3~5mA battery consumption on standby when turning on WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and Auto Sync settings.
Everything is working.
3G/HSDPA (RMNET is fast and stable for MAGLDR. Or PPP for cLK.)
Wi-Fi (Support IEEE 802.1x/EAP authentication and Ad-Hoc Wi-Fi.)
Bluetooth (Support low power mode.) (Thanks to Trilu and Charansingh)
GPS with AGPS support
720p Video Playback (H.264 up to 720p with hardware decoding)
Camcorder (800x480, H.263 and variable 30fps with hardware encoding) (Courtesy of Gpc)
You should have either MAGLDR 1.13 or cLK 220.127.116.11 bootloader on device.
CWM (ClockworkMod) Recovery Version via SD card (Flash update.zip)
Installing CWM_Recovery_for_NexusHD2 (135MB system and 2MB cache) to create a space-efficient NAND partition layout designed specifically for NexusHD2 series is highly recommended if coming from another ROM.
For Android installation you need to enter CWM Recovery.
CWM: backup and restore => Backup you current ROM first. (optional but recommended)
CWM: wipe data/factory reset if coming from another ROM or wanting to have a clean installation. (optional but recommended)
CWM: install zip from sdcard: navigate to NexusHD2-Gingerbread_V3.3a-(Android-2.3.7).zip to finish the Android installation.
This section is reserved for everyone.
If you can provide any new features via a flashable update.zip for CWM Recovery, I will place your name here.
The description is a must when you provide a file.
I don't test each add-on myself, please backup your current system before installing any of them.
