Code:
/* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or the end of the world. Please do some research
 * if you have any concerns about flashing a radio before flashing it!
 * YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the

How to Flash:

In order for this to work, the HTC Desire HD needs to be S-OFF. Flashing the radio with a corrupt file or interrupting the flash, can brick the device, please proceed with caution.

  1. Download the your choice of radio for the HTC Desire HD.
  2. Make sure the filename is PD98IMG.zip exactly or it will not work and copy it to the same folder as adb (the /platform-tools folder within the Android SDK folder).
  3. Connect the HTC Desire HD to the computer via USB.
  4. On the computer, open terminal and run the following commands:
    Code:
    adb push PD98IMG.zip /sdcard/PD98IMG.zip
    adb shell md5sum /sdcard/PD98IMG.zip
    NOTE: The md5 should match up the provide the original download location. If not, redownload & try again.
    Code:
    adb reboot bootloader
  5. The HTC Desire HD will reboot & usually boot into fastboot. Pressing the Power button will put the device into the bootloader.
  6. The bootloader will scan for the radio update. Once it finds the update, select Yes.
  7. Allow the bootloader to finish flashing the updated radio, and reboot the HTC Desire HD normally.

I can't see the point in doing this when you can easily download the radio from the radio thread and check the md5 then drop the radio.img in the folder from my thread then follow the guide on my thread

With how you described to do it this way seems a lot of messing about having to rename radio and typing loads of commands when the guide I created is a lot more simple

Could you please explain the benefits of your method???

Yes that is possible. Flashing any. Radio is dangerous. People just need to use caution. Still better than fastboot.

Sent from my Desire HD using XDA Premium App

Not totally true I flashed a radio from htc desire s Rom by accident on to dhd and all it did was sit on splash screen pulled battery and reflashed correct radio no brick. Also its been mentioned that the dhd has a back up radio that kicks in if you flash the wrong one or a corrupted radio( not tested myself).

Well, as a Linux user, I haven't managed to make fastboot work... And this method is completely platform independent. For me it's great :)

So its good for Linux users and works fine that's good to know will add link with credits to my thread for Linux users my guide will cover all Windows Linux and mac with links to appropriate threads

This is the best, because it is the simplest.

Just download the zip file, put the downloaded zip file in the root of the sdcard, restart to bootloader, choose bootloader, press volume up button when asked.

Finish!

I've been waiting for something like this since the first time I wanted to update my DHD radio image.

Never use my laptop anymore.

Thx bro.

Erm, can we re-phrase that to "it's good for those linux users that can't get fastboot to work". As an Ubuntu user I got fastboot to work without problems and prefer the fastboot method. My personal preference maybe but I just don't like the implication of the above wording. Thank you.

Thanks for this gu1dry. Did you also put these on the cyanogenmod wiki?

To the ones wondering what's the point of these PD98IMG radios:
You don't need fastboot. You don't need an ENG s-off HBOOT, only radio S-off.
It's easier and safer.

There is no need for adb anymore, just drop in the sd root and reboot :D

    Hey there, I'd like to provide you with the

    12.65.60.29_26.14.04.28_M

    in a flashable PD98IMG.zip. I downloaded it somewhere from ARHD 6.3.1 thread, checked MD5Sum, packed it into a template PD98IMG.zip, unzipped it, checked MD5Sum again (was the same :p).
    I then calculated the MD5Sum of the new created PD98IMG.zip with the radio.img in it (the one I'm providing here).

    The MD5Sum is: 599913d5041450b5c169f65b09b2f859
    Download

    So download it, put it onto your SD Card and check the MD5Sum before - should work like a charm then.

    Could radio 12.65.60.29_26.14.04.28_M please be added to the OP or would someone be so kind to explain me how to make the PD98IMG.zip? I tried just putting the radio.img in the PD98IMG.zip but that didn't work.

    Flashed it a few days ago, can't say I notice too much of a difference. Areas with a very poor signal no longer completely go dead for me.

    Dropboxed it: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/51745/12.68.60.29_26.16.04.09_M.rar
