How To Install Android On Internal NAND Memory Of HTC HD2 With MAGLDR

Advertisement

HTC HD2 AndroidHTC HD2 supports installing Android to its internal memory, taking it one step closer to being a native Android device. While we have already covered this when the first internal memory based ROM was released for the HD2, the primary tool used to accomplish this i.e. MAGLDR has seen major updates ever since and is now much better and flexible. Read on for our new and updated guide.

You should first take a look at our previous guide on installing the first Android ROM for the internal NAND memory of HTC HD2 but don’t follow the installation procedure provided there as here is the updated method using the latest versions of the tools.

Disclaimer: Please follow this guide at your own risk. AddictiveTips will not be liable if your device gets damaged or bricked during the process.

Requirements:

Procedure:

  1. Extract the contents of the downloaded ROM to your computer.
  2. Power the HD2 off and boot it into MAGLDR menu by keeping the Power button pressed.
  3. From the MAGLDR menu, select USB Flasher.
  4. Connect your HD2 to the computer via USB.
  5. From the files extracted in Step 1, run DAF.exe.
  6. Follow any on-screen instructions carefully to flash the ROM to your HD2.
  7. Once the installation is done, the phone will automatically boot into Android.

Now that you have Android installed on the internal memory of your HTC HD2, you can also install a different Android ROM on the SD card of your HD2 if you want, and make it a dual-boot phone with two different Android variants. For details, see how to boot Android from SD card of HTC HD2 with MAGLDR.

    Thanks guys for this handy article and easy to follow steps. You made it.
    I have already followed your steps and successfully installed the Froyo NAND into my HTC HD2. But I’m facing a couple of problems here, the main problem is that I had inserted a 2GB SD CARD before going through the installation process, unfortunately, Android recognized only 200 MB of it!!!! How do I get Android to recognize the full size of the SD Card??? The SD Card type is HC Class (4). And If I had to change it, do I have to begin the installation again from scratch?
    Please support.

    Thanks again for your magnificent efforts.

      After so many trials with many machines, I’ve succeeded to get the rest of SD card storage:
      1. Go to Settings –> SD and phone storage and select unmount SD card.
      2. You will get a message informing you that the SD card now is safe to be removed. (The device might not be able to read it again; as if you inserted it in the phone you will get the same message “It’s now safe to remove your SD card”).
      3. Insert the SD card in any digital camera, and start the camera.
      4. You will get a message of “FILE ERROR” or what ever, and will ask you to format the SD card.
      5. Approve the formatting.
      6. Get the SD card out of the camera and put it back in the device. and here you go.

      This Technic worked very well with me; I wanted to share it with you as you might face in the future.
      Thanks

    I have installed WP7 and Android on my HTC HD2 (on SD Card), but when I use the camera or open album in Android it says ‘Insert an SD card before using the camera’. As my OS (Android) is itself in SD Card how can I ask camera to work ?

    DAF.exe is not in the folder where the ROM was extracted as presumed in step 5. How should this step be completed. Please help
