Before we begin make sure you have Magldr 1.12 and your WP7 ROM installed.

Tools needed on PC before continuing:

1. Windows Development Tools - CLICK HERE
2. Zune PC App - CLICK HERE

Windows Development tools will take some time to download and install so be patient!

Now that you have all the tools ready to go on PC and your HD2 on WP7 its now time for the fun part!

1. Download Chevron - CLICK HERE
2. Put ChevronWP7.exe in root of your C:/ drive
3. Download chevronwp7.cer - CLICK HERE
4. Attach chevronwp7.cer to your email and send to yourself. - Open up the email on your HD2 (I used google mail) and click the attachment once will turn into shield, Click attachment again to goto install screen and click install.
5. Now on your PC plug phone into USB and run Zune. (run as administator) ChevronWP7 in C:/ drive. - tick both boxes and click unlock. Now exit.

Now you have your phone unlocked and ready to move onto the registry editing.

1. Download XBMOD Deployer - CLICK HERE
2. In your Windows Development tools you installed earlier there should be an application called "Application Deployment". Connect your phone and open the program and install XBMODDeployer.xap. This extracts the provxml into /My Documents/My Ringtones/.
3. Download TouchXplorer - CLICK HERE - and install this .xap the same way as step 2.
4. Using TouchXplorer copy the file in /My Documents/My Ringtones/ to /Windows/ , overwrite if asked. - Give it time to open the Windows folder it takes a while.
5. Download HTC Connection Setup - CLICK HERE - same as above deploy to phone.
6. Open HTC Connection Setup and setup your network.
7. If your camera setting are not showing, in settings region, change display language to: United States. - this shouldnt affect anything if you are in a different country. Im from UK


Now your phone is almost setup and ready to go. All you need to do now is contact microsoft for your activation code for your new HD7. Then just sign into live and enter activation code.


Marketplace and LIVE service should all function fine now.

I hope this Tutorial was wasy for you to follow. Any problems I'll be happy to help.

Copying it to another thread on XDA is pointless but if you mean for your site/blog then sure go ahead! Just make sure you credit XDA.

Could the first of you belonging to the European Region confirm this works for people in Spain (or European HTC HD2) without carrier lock?
And... where should we therefore contact? (Please note I am extremely willing to call US just to get my Live Services activated :P on our lovely lovely HD2)
