Before you start one note, this method only works if you succesfully flashed HSPL before and is intended as last help to unbrick your device.
If you have a untouched bricked stock rom on your device with a stock SPL don't try but just return it for repair.

More info about HSPL you can find here, credits to Cotulla and Bepe.

Please follow this steps carefully.


[B]01.Download the rom here:

RUU_Leo_1_5_TMOUS_2.02.531.MASD_S__Radio_Signed_15 .29.50.07U_2.06.50.04_TeleNav-5.5.42.zip

02.) Download attached MTTY

03.) Make a folder on your desktop in C:\

C:\Recovery\
C:\Recovery\TMOUS202\

04.) Put downloaded MTTY unzipped in C:\Recovery\.
05.) The unzipped T-MOUS 2.02 you copy to C:\Recovery\TMOUS202\.

06.) Extract the TMOUS 2.02 exe by right klicking it and choose extract.
07.) Remove all files extracted exept RUU_Signed.nbh
08.) Rename RUU_Signed.nbh to LEOIMG.nbh and copy it to your device storage card.

Now next steps I've used Windows XP and don't know how it works in other OS so you need to find out yourself sorry.

09.) Open MS ActiveSync\settings and disable USB connection.
10.) Take out sim card and storage card from your device.
11.) Next put your device in bootloader (volume down button + Power button) and connect to your pc.
12.) Open MTTY in the directory where you have copied it C:\Recovery\.
13.) Port you choose 'USB'and press ok.
14.) In the window that follows next type 'Task 29'(without the quotes) and press ENTER.
15.) MTTY will give you some errors in next Window but please ignore.
16.) Next disconnect your device from USB, take battery out and put your storage card in.
17.) Put battery back in and put the device in bootloader and follow the onscreen instruction to flash.

If this method worked for you then download a shipped rom that came with
your device
from the factory website using your device serial and flash this rom from storage card
Follow the same steps (6,7,8) as you did before with this rom to get LEOIMG.nbh

Your back to factory rom.

Reminder, in order to flash a cooked rom again you need to flash Bepe and Cotulla's HSPL.


This method worked on a bricked European HD2 which gave us a radio fail message.
I'm pretty sure it will work for your TMOUS too.


FINGERS CROSSED!

A special thanks to Xmoo for the mirror and standbye help unbricking the device.

Succes, Laurentius26

In somecases SPL 2.02 will lock your device. However, using a Goldcard did solve this issue.
So have a goldcard as back-up.

Thanks Xmoo, but everything better then a bricked device isn't?

Here's a good Tutorial thanks to Jagnet just incase people need a Goldcard:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=591314

Lock the device sounds scary but it actualy means the device is locked in the SPL (bootloader)
that comes with the T-Mob 2.02 rom not giving you the possibility to flash to another shipped rom.

+1, fingers crossed this method unbricks the device for them.

Great TUT!

Yes, this exact ROM (or 2.03) will work with the HD2 TMO USA model. Actually, I have found that this is the ONLY rom (LEOIMG.nbh) that will flash to my TMO USA HD2. Long story short...I flashed a ROM with a unwanted watermark and the only way (outside of goldcard) to get rid of the watermark was flashing 2.03.

NOTE: Currently, I have been unsuccessful in finding a way to flash this SPL. HSPL, SSPL, USPL, etc. has not worked. Otherwise, the stock ROM ain't half bad Working with xmoo on goldcard solution.

Check out my HD2 ROM 2.03 (SPL 2.02) thread for more details: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=667499

thats was 15.) MTTY will give you some errors in next Window but please ignore.

but 16 and 17, are confusing to me.

NOTE: I did copy LEOIMG.nbh to my microSDcard

but booting in bootloader mode, doesn't do anything...
what am I doing wrong?

16.) Next disconnect your device from USB, take battery out and put your storage card in.
17.) Put battery back in and put the device in bootloader and follow the onscreen instruction to flash.

Just like I have written, don't be scared because Task 29 doesn't touch the bootloader.

And you MUST follow all steps otherwise this method won't work.
