Hi Wonderful HD2 Android Community.

Now that Android is running on NAND smooth enough to be a daily build, I decided to create some boot screens to remove every last trace of "Stockness" from my HD2.

I have created two boot screens to replace the standard white HTC (or operator) screen which appears when you first turn on your device, before MAGLDR starts.

These boot screens are a simple and classy. Sample JPEG images are attached below so you can see before you flash, along with the ZIP files for each boot screen.

Any boot screen I post has been tested by me on my own HD2, so there shouldn't be any issues. However, flash boot screens at your own risk. I do not take any responsibility for any damage to your device. Flashing boot screens voids your warranty.

Please note: I am hosting these files on my own server so I can track download numbers, so these are all direct links to the files. Not links to download sites. Safe to download at work

To flash back to the original boot screen. CLICK HERE

The zip files must be extracted. Do not try and install via CWM.

Please note, to flash boot screens, your phone needs to have HSPL2.08 installed, or installation will fail.

Instructions for Win Mo 6.5.x users (Flashing using CustomRuu.exe) - Not sure why you would want to use an Android boot screen if you are still running WinMo though.

* Make sure your battery is at 50 percent or greater before beginning.
* Whilst the device is in Windows Mobile, connect your HD2 via USB.
* Connect device with 'Windows Mobile Device Center'.
* Run the CustomRUU.exe (with administrative privileges)
* Press update
* Success!


Instructions for NAND Android/WP7 (Flashing using CustomRuu.exe)

* Make sure your battery is at 50 percent or greater before beginning.
* Completely power off the device (unplug USB connection if present)
* Press down the "Volume down" and "Power/End" button simultaneously.
* You should see a red, green,blue and white screen with the word "Serial" in the bottom.
* Connect your HD2 to the PC via USB (the word "Serial" should be replaced by "USB".
* Run the CustomRUU.exe (with administrative privileges)
* Press update
* Success!


I hope you like these boot screens. I will be adding more over time so stay posted.

If you appreciate my work, please use the "Thanks" button or if you feel inclined, consider a donation.

Thanks!

I'm not sure what yo mean. If you create your own NBH file with the image you want to flash, you can use the CUSTOMRUU.EXE to flash it.
