Hi everyone, I'd like to let everyone know that I will no longer be updating my builds.

This is mainly due to the lack of time and that I have a lot of work for university to do.

I'd like to thank everyone who donated to me, I have sent an email to each and every one of you

I'd like to thank everyone who supported me throughout the last few months and I'd like to thank everyone at #htc-linux & #htc-linux-chat for their help and for being awsome!

Once again, many thanks!


Welcome to HD2Froyo!
I've finally got down to updating this build, let's get down to business...

What the build looks like:


Whats working:

  • Camera (5mpx) and video recorder (800x480 only)
  • Media playback with no skipping
  • FM Radio (with bluetooth support)
  • Light Sensor
  • G-Sensor
  • Bluetooth (headsets too)
  • + more


HTC Desire NON-SENSE build (HD2Froyo V3) (Based on DeFrost by richardtrip, source: for HTC HD2 by darkstone on 26/10/2010:
My goal is to make a build that is close to stock as possible, but also has everything working. I'm getting there

Everything should be working, should be fast. Very fast.

Changelog for V3:

Updated lib_htcril_wrapper & htcleo.acdb
Some performance tweaks
Dropped Passion base and changed to AOSP+Cyanogenmod build base
Uses PPP (sorry rmnet folk, rmnet doesn't appear to be functioning correctly in the EVO kernel)
If you have issues with data/PPP, look here for support:

Updated kernel to latest EVO commit on 25/10/2010 from here:
Kernel compiled by darkstone, no changes made to source, use the source above ^


Make sure to reboot after first boot, apps needing root access won't work. Phone calls will have no audio. Make sure you reboot!
This build can not be used to upgrade previous versions of HD2Froyo, you must start fresh. Use titanium backup to backup your current settings.
Creates a 1GB data.img if there is no data.img present. I have included a clean 1GB data.img for a quick first boot.
Don't worry about FB console not showing, that's normal

// Copy the Android and the media folder to the root of your SD card, run CLRCAD.EXE and haret.exe on your HD2 //

Kernel Tree:
If you want to update the kernel, I would recommend kernel builds by hastarin which has tweaks.

Just want to point out that the HTC Desire is closest in terms of hardware to our HD2, that's why I prefer cooking a Desire build and that's why I will always choose Desire based builds over EVO and Desire HD builds.

Thanks to everyone at #htc-linux and #htc-linux-chat !

I have been testing it out for a while. The only thing I am having a problem is that incoming calls are distorted on the hd2's end but not on the other persons end. I followed the instruction and tried it a couple times. Any idea's?? Thanks

This build is awesome. Far superior to the Desire build or the other Froyo builds. Stable and very snappy. Great work! Once we get GPS this can be my full-time os.

Super snappy built compared to the v5, this is running from a class 2 card.
I did have a sort of freeze after taking a picture and then going to view it and delete it. it froze for like 30 seconds was about to reset when I got the android boot screen and it came right back.

update and also just got the sleep of death
