HTC HD2 gets Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh

HTC logoIt’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.
