Greetings HD2 Brethren! I recently created these boot screens in Photoshop to showcase our amazing phone's unique triple-booting penta-booting capabilities! :eek: I made several versions to potentially fit everyone'stastes and strived to make the boot screens clean, simple, and appealing. My ultimate goal is the assimilation of all HD2s (compatible with both Euro and US HD2s) (Muahahahahahahaha) therefore I have compiled fourteen versions; so pick your poison ;)

Extras and Modding

Full-Res Images
I took the liberty of uploading the full-resolution BMP images of all of the boot screens. You are free to edit, modify and republish the images as you see fit (I would appreciate some credit though) or perhaps use them as a wallpaper of sorts. The file can be downloaded on the 'attachments' section of this post ('Boot Images BMP [Full Res].rar').

I don't understand, is this for using MAGLDR?

How can this boot Android from bootscreen if we are using WinCE to load Haret?

It's a Boot Screen for the device that is flashed using 'customruu.exe'. This will replace the carrier/htc manufacturer screen that is seen when the device powers on.

Is this operation reversible? I remember finding a thread that the HD2 has two locations for boot screens, one that can be restored to whatever you want, while the other is not.

This boot screen can be restored to w/e you please :)

is there a way that you can brick your phone with this??

I cannot think of such a scenario. However if you unplug your device (from the USB connection) while the flashing is taking place, the odds of bricking your device go up astronomically.
