It’s been awhile since we’ve reported about the HTC HD2, but we’ve got some exciting news about the phone today. The versatile device has received the latest build of Windows Phone – 7.5 Refresh (previously known as Tango) in the form of a custom ROM. According to reports from people that have installed it, it looks like WP 7.5 Refresh improves the phone’s performance significantly.
However, it does have its shortcomings i.e. a Bluetooth music bug and no access to the Windows Marketplace as well as low speaker volume when in-call. But – it is Windows Phone on your ancient HD2, which is already a feat in itself. If you’ve got some experience hacking your HD2 phone before, you can head over to XDA-developers for links to the files and instructions on what to do to upgrade your phone. Give it a shot and let us know how it goes! As usual, be sure to backup your phone and make sure you know what you’re doing beforehand.
