This ROM is now a port of the Nexus S Gingerbread ROM leak for the HD2. I would like to make it clear that this ROM may be unstable and not for everyday use! Since we're using a version of Android designed for a different device, we may have issues. The leaked build I'm using is available here - some modding is required though.
Starting from 0.05, my builds come with a 96MB Data.img file to get you out of trouble. I will provide data.img files that are 128MB, 256MB, 512MB and 768MB in size. You can make your own image via a terminal on Linux like this (don't type the dollar sign or the stuff behind it)
[email protected]:~$ dd if=/dev/zero of=/path/to/Android/folder/data.img bs=1M count=128M [email protected]:~$ mke2fs /path/to/Android/folder/data.img
Extract the "Android" folder in the ZIP file below to your MicroSD Card, pop it into your HD2, open File Explorer from WinMo, find the Android folder, tap CLRCAD.exe and then Haret.exe and watch the sparks fly.
For patches, extract the files in the patch archive to your MicroSD Card, overwriting any existing files.
You can download the ROM from my server below. Please don't use download accelators, they will make my VPS cry...
LATEST VERSION IS 0.5, PLEASE DO NOT USE OLDER VERSIONS AS YOU WILL BE ASKED TO UPGRADE IF YOU SAY SOMETHING IS NOT WORKING ON THOSE OLDER BUILDS!
Version 0.01 > Get the goodness here! <
Version 0.02 (Patch only, download v0.01 first!) > Get the goodness here! <
Version 0.03 (Only a data.img for people who are having boot problems) > Get the goodness here! <
Version 0.05 > Get the goodness here! <
Version 0.05 requires 7-Zip to extract
If I used any of your works and I did not acknowledge you, I am not claiming your work as my own. That would be the wrong thing to do (and I am not intending to "kang" any sources). I am also not responsible if your device is bricked or broken by direct or indirect use of this ROM.
spbeeking - The person that dumped the gingerbread SDK build in the other thread, in which that got over 210 Posts.
dakluck - Found the fix for BSOD (temporary).
m-deejay - Used his kernel. They rock.
jubeh - Found the problem with the SDK Build's lagginess.
supercurio - For the Nexus S ROM Dump.
...last but not least, all HD2 Owners that have given up 250MB+ of their MicroSD Card space to test GingerHD2.
Credit will be given where due. Watch this space!
