Yes, exactly.. Its just that Im not a big fan of the colored themes.. Not sure but this particular one just said "base Topia HD" so Im hoping that is more stock looking (god i hope its not the xmas one) But that would be awesome of you to do... Let me know if this is even necessary (not completely sure the other DHD builds have the blurry MMS problem, just assumed almost all Sense builds had blurry MMS except CMYLXGO)

I was able to use Magldr in usb mass storage mode to both partition my SD card, and load my android build without a problem. (After I tried it two or three times that is.) I am using the Futureshock Miui method posted early in the thread. (First boot took literally ten minutes.) but both builds are working without any lags.

Now if I could only get WP7 to unlock again, unlocker says it works but phone still says Leo70.

Anyway if you dont have a second SD card or a reader there is hope for you

OOPS: Did I forget to thank everyone in this thread and bash everyone who doesnt search before asking questions.

Good news and bad news

Good news

If wp7 is locked, the only way I got it to unlock it again is by resetting the device or reflashing wp7. You can do this in settings. There is a thread on this in the hd2 wp7 section about preventing a relock. Make sure you install unlockit.xap before you activate market. That is my solution, been 5 days and no problems since. You can activate market a few times from what I gather. There is an alternate method on the hd2 wp7 general thread.

Bad news, you have to re-install everything and probably repartition your sd.

Good luck

If you had read through this thread you would've found the answer answered several times... You need to use minitool partition manager to change your wp7 from logical to primary. Me and hyellow have posted that program a couple times in this thread... look back a few pages and you should find it... otherwise when I sign on with my computer I can upload it again.

I'm at my computer now, so I'll upload that file again to make it easier and so new people can find it more easily.

Installing magldr will erase wm6.5 off your phone... then you can flash either wp7 or android to the internal memory, and you can also run sd android builds from your sd card with magldr.

Just a quick question guys, what happens when I pull the battery and restart the phone? Will WP7 again repartition the whole thing? Will my android partition stay? I need to change the sim and now scared of removing the battery, haha.

"I used EASEUS ALL-IN-ONE Partition Manager Software and it worked. It is free to download and here is the link: http://www.partition-tool.com/download.htm"

I was following instructions to setup WP7 on my HD2 that said to remove the SD card during installation. Problem is WP7 would not see my SD card for storage. I used this software to delete the partition then went to the about screen to reset my phone. I now have a usable sd card for WP7. Thanks for the assist!
