OK this is a Guide on how to Flash Xbmod & Yuki’s WP7 ROM (Mango 7720). It is not a replacement of the original thread simply an accompaniment, continue to use other thread to post issues and asks.

PLEASE READ / PLEASE READ / PLEASE READ / PLEASE READ / PLEASE READ /PLEASE READ / PLEASE READ / PLEASE READ / PLEASE READ

This sometimes causes offense
-
If you ask a question that has been answered here! You will not get an answer on the board–

If I link a thread visit the page and read the instructions and thank the person for taking the time and effort.

History
There are two ROM’s made by XBmod and Yuki (within a few days of releasing the ROM Yuki retired from XDA, may they RIP or be resurrected in the future) XBmod continues to build and offer solutions. But understand that you are indebted to them and others – for providing the ROM.

Concept
To build a WP7 ROM that can be updated by Zune when MS release updates and Also so that Dev’s or anyone can develop custom CAB’s to be sent to the device without the need to reflash or mess with the system…….

The ROM
Both are Unbranded i.e. Vanilla flavor i.e. No carrier branding and you have Root access.
There are two differences between V1 and V2 ROM’s

1. V1 - HD2_Updatable_XBmod_Yuki_v1
  • a. Radio: 5.69.09.05a_22.50.50.21u
  • b. was an attempt to try and get he Sdcard working for other things but it failed, V1 remains for future development only

(Feedback from those testing V1 was that the Radio caused extreme battery drainage and the SD card created more issue than good, so V2 was born. V1 is left for others to play and possibly future development, to see if they can eventually get Dual boot to work – but it may never occur and quite frankly this ROM is so Stable & Pure and running on the best device ever, that you don’t need another OS)

2. V2 - HD2_Updatable_XBmod_Yuki_v2_native
  • a. Radio: 5.51T.09.29a_22.32.50.10U
  • b. Formats the SD card like a native WP7 device
(Feedback about battery performance has been for most, positive with a few exceptions will attempt to build country table in Appendix)

Common Questions

Q. Which ROM should I use?
A. Use the V2 ROM for obvious reasons.

Note: When you flash you will LOSE ALL DATA from your SD card, so if you need it - back it up! Also some SD cards present issues so be warned not all work…..
Make sure it’s a SD card that works and is supported, otherwise you could face frequent reboots / freezes / restarts / loops. SandDisk seems to be the best so far try to use class 4, you can use, 2GB, 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and even 32GB

Q. Can I Dual boot and Run Android?
A. Yes. XBmod has released a CAB that can be used to unlock the SDCard for Dual boot.

Q. I’ve installed V1 should I move to V2?
A. that’s up to you, but the general consensus is Yes move to V2

Q. I’m on V1 do I need to Start right from the beginning – re-run the whole Process?
A. Update oriignally yes, but we have a report that someone has gone straight from V1 to V2 without going back to stock rom (WM6.5) by simply flashing V2 on top of V1. No reported problems. So, it's up to you...

Q. Do I need to change the HTC HD2 name in about to HD7
A. No the HTC HD2 is just afriendly name, it wont and can't cause any problems anywhere. The phone is registred as an HTC Schubert (HD7)

RADIO:There are two Radios:
The first which you install during the initial set-up and another which is Baked into the ROM. Some folk who want to play and experiment will want to change the Radio in the ROM – you can do this and more about that in the Appendix:

UPDATEL: XBmod is working on a CAB to change the Radio in the ROM, thus in the future you will be able to send the CAB and change the Radio.

What do I need?

HD2 unlocked and a WP7 Activation key (search the forum)

Hard SPL v 2.08 or higher
I used HSPL4 and selected HSPL2.08.
WP7 doesn’t support HSPL3.03/OSPL3.03. You need to select HSPL2.08 to run WP7 & MAGLDR.

Radio which supports 576 RAM. (Radio 2.15.50...)
I used Leo_RADIO_2.15.50.14**:

Magldr1.13

Windows Mobile 6.5 Stock ROM
I used World Wide English (WWE) 3.14.405.2

Zune Download and Install the lastest version of the client.

WP7 Update Cab Sender
Download and extract to a folder on your PC, this will be the tool used to send custom packages (CAB) to the device and offer backup and restore features:

HD2-7720fix
Extract to a Folder

The V2 ROM HD2_Updatable_XBmod_Yuki_v2_native
Extract to a folder

DeviceProvisioning.cab
To be placed into “WP7 Update Cab Sender folder” later. Do not Extract!!


UPDATE: XBmod has released a new SDCARD UNLOCK TOOL. You are now able to Read and Andriod PARTITION and UNLOCK all your locked Cards.

Custom and Special CAB's:
DEV_STORAGELOCK.cab (this will install the unlock tool for your sd card (providing the possibility of dualboot))
DEV_STORAGELOCK_REMOVE.CAB (as always a second CAB removing the above function "unlock tool" Warning your SDCard will be relocked at reboot resulting is dataloss.)

Radio:
There are 2 different Radios:

Radios that you can flash using HardSPL:
For installing a RADIO ROM you need to use HardSPL on your device: it won't hardreset your device.


Changing the Radio in the ROM

UPDATE: XBmod is working on a CAB to change the Radio in the ROM, thus in the future you will be able to send the CAB and change the Radio.

At present use the instructions below.
To use a different Software Radio you need to change the Part00.bin in the 7004 Data.zip and start the process to 7720 all over again... As for the regular HD2 radio we can continue to flash away

Steps:
Download the radio you want to use
You'll get a part00.bin file
In the V1 or V2 ROM you can find a data.zip file
Replace in data.zip the part00.bin with the one you downloaded
Go through the usual process of installing the ROM


For EU Leo users who want to try 5.51 (without the t) see this post by LittleH79 .

Simple guide to replace the radio:
- Download 7zip from the web and install it.
- Download V2 rom.
- Download my radio attached.
- Extract attached radio to a folder (inside is part00.bin)
- Extract V2 rom to a folder
- Go to the extracted rom folder.
- In there you'll find Data.zip
- Open this folder with 7zip.
- Open the folder where you saved my attached radio (part00.bin)
- Simply drag file part00.bin inside 7zip window
- Wait a few moment and you're done
- Just to be sure, if it went well you'll see that file part00.bin has 2 dates changed


The Radio I’m sure will become a topic in its own right! what you have to remember is that there is no right or wrong Radio, it’s all about how close you are to a tower, Signal strength, country etc etc etc, right now to change the ROM radio you need to flash, hopefully someone can figure out how we can flash it without needing to Flash the ROM, perhaps a CAB.....


RADIO TABLE (need Data from folk for this)

SIM lockedIf you have SIM locked device from your mobile provider, before you upgrade to WP7 you must unlock the device (if you want SIM lock free). unlocking not working under WP7. For unlocking you must have unlock code... in most case, you must buy this code from any trusted GSM unlock site) or contact your carrier and ask them for an unlock code, typically they will give you one.
Thanks to dxdy

SD cards and unlocking them.
Once WP7 formats your SDcard, your computer won't read them since WP7 locked them this is part of the security feature built into WP7.

But if you need to, you can format the cards in certain devices, you should use one of thre following reported methods
Nokia N or E series
Nokia Phone
Nokia Symbian OS phone
PDA like 5250
N95
Canon camera
Nikon Camera

If you don’t have one of the above and rather than buying a new SD card, borrow one from a freind, or even go to a store and ask the store guy, and ask him if its ok that they let you use one to do it.


Custom and Special CAB's:
DEV_STORAGELOCK.cab (this will install the unlock tool for your sd card (providing the possibility of dualboot))
DEV_STORAGELOCK_REMOVE.CAB (as always a second CAB removing the above function "unlock tool" Warning your SDCard will be relocked at reboot resulting is dataloss.)

HTML 5

Is working.

This looks fantastic! I was having problems and just about to give up and go back to my previous rom, but this has given me a few areas where i could have gone wrong!
The installation instructions with the rom were sketch at most, so this is a great addition to yuki and XBmod's brilliant work!

I hope it's ok I post here...
I'm only a bit wary about doing this, because I don't have a serial to activate WP7.
Plus, I'd like to know if it's possible to have Portuguese(Portugal) as the display language, and how to do that...
Also, I got a 4GB, class 4, sd card from Kingston.
How do I know if it is compatible?
Can you help?

A. Yes you do.

I went from v1 to v2 without going back to stock rom (6.5) but just flashing v2 on top of v1. Not had a single problem. So, it's up to you...

Edit: Nice tutorial!

Its not really okay for you to post a question on the front page, in the development section, but since you have now, i will answer your question, maybe it will add to the guide.

Unfortunatley i do not know about the language, but if you have look around the forums, you will easily find out that its not possible for anyone to say for sure whether your sd card will work, even when a card of the same spec works. So its purely luck. Try and flash Yuki's rooted rom on the developement section of this forum first, to determine whether your card works, then move onto this.
As for the activation code, you will only be asked for this when connecting to the marketplace.
I was able to get mine by phoning up, however some people have been unsuccessfull in doing this now, but its always worth a try. Then you code can be used multiple times, so if you flash over your rom, you can re-enter it again in a clear rom fairly easily, as long as you keep the same XBOX LIVE ID and dont change too often.

only small tip

if you have SIM locked device by mobile provider, before upgrade to WP7 you must unlock device (if you want SIM lock free). unlocking not working under WP7

for unlocking you must have unlock code... in most case, you must buy this code from any trusted GSM unlock site (unlock-now for example... very fast and good support)
