T-Mobile HTC HD2 ROM update now official

If you missed it a few days ago, before HTC pulled it, you can once again grab youself the official HD2 ROM upgrade.

Simply hop here https://support.t-mobile.com/community/phones-tablets-devices#windows/ (opens in new tab) and type in your IMEI to download the latest ROM.

Couple of things, for the 15 digit IMEI: if you have 17 digits, just leave the last 2 off. Second, yes, this is the exact same ROM as the "unofficial" one from a few days ago: same size, same numbering, no reported differences in performance. So if you're already flashed, no need to do it again.

Read all the details in the press release right here.

  • This update is great except for the touch screen. The sensativity is way down now, makes the phone feel less responsive. Bummer, loved this phone until the update..
  • people complain it was too sensitive now the complain its not sensitive enough...i guess you cant please everyone...
    but here is a cab to make it more sensitive http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=683192
  • Asked for 15-digit IMEI number but the one displayed on the HD2 is 17 digits long. So I entered the first 15 digits and the download was authorized. Downloading at a hotel using a slow DSL line... 57 minutes left (lol)
  • Update pulled again! **************
