The awesome Android community of XDA Developers forum have done it again. XDA Forum Member IcedCube has released a new ROM called GingerHD2 which brings Android 2.3 Gingerbread to HTC HD2. The ROM is highly alpha at the moment and is intended for developers only, not common users. Many features are not working at the moment, including camera.
Important Note: Please follow the procedure below at your own risk. It is a highly experimental release and AddictiveTips will not be liable if your device gets damaged or bricked during the process.
The installation process is pretty self-explanatory if you are a developer. The first step is to extract the folder named “Android” in the ZIP file (which can be found at the bottom of this post) to the root of your MicroSD card and pop it (insert it) in your HTC HD2 phone. Now open File Explorer from Windows Mobile and find the “Android” folder. Tap CLRCAD.exe and then Haret.exe and you are done. Simple as that!
GingerHD is in highly experimental stage at the moment and is not meant for daily use. Check the official XDA Developers GingerHD thread for latest releases and troubleshooting problems.
A newer version i.e. 0.5 has been released, and the download link has been updated.
