The Three Network (recently bought by Vodafone here in Australia) released the Desire HD with a ?slightly different ROM to Vodafone. It has a higher build number and includes the customary links to "Planet 3" services. After installing Paul's unofficial clockworkmod, I did a factory reset and then used clockworkmod recovery mode to backup the ROM (so there's no personal info in the data image file). I'm completely new to Android, but I was thinking along the lines that Three Network customers might want the option of getting their device back to stock condition (after messing with it like I did). I know these factory roms can be regarded as 'bloated', so I doubt other Androphiles will be interested in flashing it. Well done to Paul and the other Desire HD developers on Modaco and XDA developers. The link is:

Hey, i am a Three Australia DHD user as well, I was wondering with this ROM, does it flash the HBOOT to S-ON as well? Or is there a method for me to flash back my Hboot to S-ON if required?

No. The rom is S-off. I had to install ENG HBOOT (S-OFF) in order to install clockworkmod and make the backup. Happy Three Networking :) . I think (but am not sure) that you can use the "DHD script for flashing hboot" found elsewhere on this forum from Android terminal emulator to restore your original HBOOT (as long as you made a back up of it when you first used that script to flash the Eng hboot).

You could flash my Three rom. Before you do that, make a note of your Vodafone APN's (Settings -> Wireless and Networks -> Mobile Networks -> Access Point Names). After flashing the Three rom, you'll need to change the APNs (which were 3services on the Three Network) to Vodafone's equivalent. In order to flash the rom, you'll need Paul's Visionary permaroot and clockwork recovery (the Restore option). As they say on the threads, all at your own risk.

Thanks mate for updating me with where the rooting and rom application status is on DHD. I was basically after a stock (clean/unbranded) rom with no tweaks. I think in my recent Android phones, DHD probably has the best factory rom.

My Planet 3 rom is a backup of a 'stock' rom (made using clockworkmod recovery's nandroid backup feature), with no tweaks or user data added. So, you could use it. You'd need to follow the method described above though. You need clockworkmod recovery in order to restore it.

Help

Hello.

I also have a 3 mobile Desire HD here in australia. I am having a little trouble. Was wondering if you's could help.

I want to load a different rom. Leedroid or Defrost. Not sure yet but i am struggling.

I have used visionary r14 to permaroot the phone. I have done a backup with titanium and i have rom manager. This is where i get stuck.

All the stuff i have read does not make this really clear. I want to make a backup of the rom that is loaded just incase i ever want to turn it all back.
I go into rom manager and i click on Backup Current ROM

phone reboots and a pic of the phone comes up and it has a red ? above it. phone restarts and nothing happens.

I am unsure what to do and where to go from here.

Any help would be great.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Doesent matter. I got it sorted and was able to do a backup.

Took me a while but got there. Has anybody put on a different rom yet like either of the ones i have mentioned?

Hi jonkers71
Rom manager does not work for the desire HD yet. The guy who writes the rom manager app also writes the 'official' clockwork mod recovery. Paul's clockworkmod for the desire HD is not supported yet by rom manager. By the way, Paul is the same guy who wrote visionary. My file is a backup of a blank planet 3 rom, so you can keep it as a backup. You need Paul's clockwork mod installed (after you root your phone) in order to make backups and do restores. Clockwork mod does exactly the same thing as rom manager except it runs after you take the battery out, put it back in, and boot while pressing volume down. It runs in text mode (like a dos program or a BIOS in a PC). Its really simple. Just choose backup or restore. Most custom roms are installed using clockworkmods 'install from zip' option. See the tutorial thread by Paul which tells you how to install clocmworkmod. Its by far the easiest way to install, backup and restore roms. The backup command backs up all your data too. This is also a more reliable backup in most situations than titanium because its a bit like a ghost or acronis disk image in a PC.

Follow the tutorial on rooting the phone and installing 'eng hboot' (which is simply a text based menu that appears when you boot the phone while pressing volume down). Install Paul's clockwork mod using his tutorial. Download leedroids rom and put it on your SD card. Turn off the phone by pressing power for 2 secs and selecting turn off. Take the battery out. Put it back in. Press and keep pressing volume down, while you tap the power button. A text menu appears, select 'recovery', then select 'install from zip'. 2 minutes later you have a new rom. Select reboot from the menu.
