can someone please let me know where can i find SDEXT zip file needed for eu phone and mentioned by nrgz on the first page?
thank you!

Post 1 is no longer correct, when it says, you should choose an extra file for EU models. There is only one file for TMOUS and EU models.
The actual one is


i do not understand... On the first page is the link to an older version: 3.15. What about the link to the newest 3.5 version? I couldn't find it...

See above ! But if you still don´t see it, use another browser.:good:

Happy flashing and please do not forget to hit the thank you button, if this helped you!:cool:

Hey guys,

I know this question has been answered before but I can't find it in this huge thread.

Just wanted to know how to flash the new one provided that I currently run the March version? I mean, should I repartition and install all these magldr and everything again or I can just do it a faster way?

Thank you!

cwm 5/150/5 (EU, clk) is enough if yours is bigger not necessary to change...
Wipe in the recovery and flash. At all with installation after first reboot less than 15 mn... :)

Good new. Tks.

Did you fix this issue ? There was none previeiw about skins, theme, lockscreen etc ...


Sorry, but where is the download link ???

edit : oups, found it;

Last thing.

Could some one help me to make screenshots please.


in order to screenshot you can download an app from the google play store:)

What is the best procedure to upgrade the rom, preserving apps and data, from march release to the current one?

Same question: as there are changes in framework, is it necessary to do a factory reset, or is it enough to wipe cache and dalvik cache?

At moment starting download says "0" since 5 mins. I will try it further!

I recommend using titanium backup to backup your apps. After that perform a clean install meaning to task 29 and format sd card after backing up its contents. Flashing magldr and the partition with recovery of your choice. Flash the Rom and restore your apps.

thank you!

Eu and tmous is now one file. It let's you choose during install whether you want to instal as either or.

    Welcome to the "Energy" ROM thread !

    This development thread is for my "Energy" custom firmware series for the HTC HD2 !

    I build my ROMs with four main goals.

    • Eye candy ( I want my ROM to look great and for it to all flow together nicely)
    • Speed !!!
    • Smoothness, consistency and good aesthetics
    • Stability through private beta testing before public release
    I preconfigure a lot of things in my ROM, because when I flash it on my phone, I want it ready to go. So, the ringtone, sms/email and other notifications to already be set. Doing it this way, makes for a nice ROM that's ready out of the box.

    ROM Features

    • Android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread)
    • Rosie transparency... modded
    • Blue overscroll
    • Blue highlights instead of green
    • Deodexed, zipaligned, tweaked
    • Extra Quick Settings
    • Improved SD card read ahead
    • Busybox + runparts, TitaniumBackup
    • Zipaligned
    • Zipaligns apk's at boot
    • A few HTC Apps removed, like HTC Navigation and some widgets
    • A lot of junk removed
    • clK and MAGLDR supported in ROM ZIP file
    • TMOUS or EU model supported in ROM ZIP file
    • Updated hosts file for ad removal
    • RCMix Tweaks built in!
    • Dr Dre beats support as well as the normal Dolby, SRS and EQ support !
    • A lot more stuff... check the changelog below
    • Fast... Stable.. and GREAT battery life

    Please visit this thread for all your questions and answers about this ROM, especially if you can't post here yet!

    Please setup a 380MB system partition to use this ROM, on TMOUS handsets.

    If you have an EU HD2 (not Tmobile) have a 1Gb ext(2 or 3) partition ready on your SD card and choose the "EU" option when prompted during installation.

    Flashing instructions

    Advanced Users:

    For the SDEXT version, you need a CWM layout of 5/200/5. If your phone doesn't boot, try a higher than 200 partition.

    For the regular version, you need a system partition of 380 MBs.


    Follow the instructions below to flash the ROM for the first time.. if you're coming from a Windows Mobile based HD2. It's recommend to have your SDCARD ready with my ROM loaded on it already.

    1. Download and install MAGLOADER.

    Download and unpack MAGLDR1.13 from (http://nrgz28.sylvester20007.com/HD2Tools/DFT_LEO_MAGLDR113_DAF.rar)

    Once downloaded unpack the MAGLDR package with your favorite tool. WinRAR or 7zip recommended. Go to the folder where you unpacked the MAGLDR package and run ROMUpdateUtility.exe. Check the checkmarks and hit next to flash, just like you would flash a Windows Mobile ROM.

    The phone will reboot and go to the multi colored bootloader screen. After the flash is complete it will reboot and go IN to the MAGLDR. You'll see a text menu with 12 options. Go to Option 5 (USB Flasher) and hit the Green Send key on your device. It will put MAGLDR in flasher mode and wait for a USB connection. Let it sit on this screen for now...

    2. Setup system partition and install Clockworkmod recovery

    Download the HD2Toolkit. You can click here to get it > http://nrgz28.sylvester20007.com/HD2Tools/hd2_toolkit_setup.exe (original thread at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1090783 )

    Run the installer and install it. Now, after you open the HD2 Android Nand Toolkit, it will look like the screenshot at the bottom of this post.

    Now... if you have TMobile USA phone (with green/red buttons at the bottom) then choose a custom partition size and just click Repartition in the bottom left corner. After that.. input 380 for size.

    If... you have a device with all white buttons at the bottom (an european/asian model) then choose Custom on the left hand side and input 200 in the box that pops up after you hit Partition.

    Now you get a green "DFT" screen.

    Hit Next until it asks you to put the phone in USB Flasher mode. The phone should already be in USB Flasher mode from step one. The progress bar will go back and forth while the phone is being setup. Hit Finish when it's done.

    The phone will reboot on its own and go back to the main Magloader screen with all the options.

    3. Flashing the Energy ROM

    Now pick Option 8 and go to "AD Recovery". Magloader will load the ClockworkMod Recovery where you can flash your ROM. This is the place to go when flashing future ROM updates or "patches". To get to this screen after you load a ROM, you have to keep the Power key pressed down as you turn the phone on. You don't have to do that now, however.

    Now I assume you have my ROM on the sdcard already. If not, take it out and transfer it through your computer or card reader.... and plug it back in to the phone.

    If you have a TMobile USA phone, you can skip this section and go straight to installing the ROM below... If you have the euro/asian model continue to read.
    Go to the Advanced menu and pick Partition SD Card. Pick a size of 1024M and let it do its thing. Make sure it doesn't error out. If it didn't, continue to flash the ROM below... Make sure to copy the ROM zip back to the SD card by using the "mount USB storage" feature of the recovery.

    Go to
    "Install Zip from sdcard" in the menu options and hit the Send key. Then choose "choose zip from sdcard" using the volume keys on the side and hit the Send
    key again. Pick my ROM from the list and hit the Send key again. Pick "No", hit Send. Now the ROM is flashing...

    When it's done, hit the Back key. "Reboot system now" is selected. Just hit the Send key to reboot the phone and boot the ROM !

    4. Booting up Android for the first time

    The phone should now be rebooting and the Magloader screen will briefly show up....
    Towards the bottom the words Go! GO! GO! will show and then you'll see the NRG logo which means the kernel is booting up. Wait a few minutes and the phone will
    be ready to play with...

    5. Enjoy your new operating system !
