T-Mobile HTC HD2 ROM is back...again

At first it was here, then it was, then it was back, then it was gone...and now it's back. (Get it here (opens in new tab))

That finicky HD2 ROM from T-Mobile has once again returned to the site (opens in new tab), ready for download after being recently removed reportedly due to technical issues causing mischief on people's ginormous black slabs.

So what was fixed? Evidently nothing.  In T-Mobile's forum they blame the last ROM yanking on server issues. Yeah.

Due to overwhelming demand, some customers experienced slow download times when attempting to access the HTC HD2 software update from the T-Mobile Web site. As a result, we temporarily removed the link from our Web site to ensure the best possible customer experience.Now that we have solved our server issues, we are happy to announce that the software update for the HTC HD2 is now available on the T-Mobile Web site for customers to download and install on their HTC HD2 smartphone.If you have already downloaded and installed the software update to their HTC HD2, please continue to use your device as normal. You do not need to reinstall the software.

So no need to re-flash as nothing will change. Speaking of, with the new ROM, lots of complained about the poor touch response. If that's you, XDA has you covered with this .cab fix to adjust the settings for you. Good luck!

  • How do I load this fix from XDA to my HTC HD2? I am a little new at working with Windows Mobile software. Thanks in advance for the positive response.
  • when you download, it gives you the directions..very simple
  • When I down loaded it to my computer all that I saw were 2 files. One was a set up and the other was just a file. I received no instructions at all. What am I doing wrong?
    Thanks for your help.
  • I downloaded it but didn't install as I have the energyrom on my phone and I love it a lot.
