This time I post about installing Froyo into hTC HD2, thanks to my friend kasmankk who gave me a trust to poke his phone for this experiment. Credits also goes to HD GEEK from XDA Forum and addictivetips site for their comprehensive guidelines.

Original setup :

I’ve decided to choose HardSPL 2.08 and Radio 2.12 for this test.
Steps taken :
1. Install HardSPL 2.08 GUIDE
2. Install radio 2.12 GUIDE
3. Install custom ROM (ChuckyROM) GUIDE
4. Download Froyo build here, extract and copy the Android folder and its contents into the SD card
5. Navigate to the Android folder in the device
6. Run CLRCAD.exe
7. Run haret.exe
8. Enjoy your Froyo!!!
New setup for Froyo :

Froyo port to HD2 is still in its early stage, thus few bugs exist. However I’m sure it’ll be solved soon…
Till then, the device will be returned to its rightful owner for him to play around with it.
OK kasmankk, what’s next? Root your Desire eh? 😉
