We knew it was coming. Heck, it's been in people's hands for awhile already.  Regardless, HTC officially let loose the 1.48 ROM update for the HD2.

Improvements are as follows:

  1. Flipping back and forth between songs is easier than ever.  Whether you are listening to a defined playlist, or letting your phone shuffle your songs for you, your music will play continuously and fluidly.
  2. Taking full advantage of the G-Sensor, Opera can switch seamlessly from portrait to landscape mode to allow more flexibility and allow for you to browse your websites however you want.
  3. Staying connected to your loved ones is as important to you as it is to us, and we’ve enhanced our voice quality even more in this update.  Now updated, we’re delivering crystal clear sound quality, making it even easier to feel close to your loved ones, even when you are on the move.

Get that update here.

Of course, there already is a 1.61 ROM update leaked.  Gotta love that.  The leaked version reportedly addresses some radio issues (poor HSDPA performance) and incorporates the camera fix.  And at least according to Fards (via Twitter), it gets a whopping "150% speed boost over the 1.48 rom".  Sweeet.

Finally, on top of the ROM update, there is a "SMS function patch" as well.  You'll want to apply that after the 1.48 ROM update.  Whew, patch that sucka!
