T-Mobile pulls HD2 update--cites problems with ROM

In regards to the latest ROM update to the T-Mobile HTC HD2, people's reaction fell into two camps:

  1. It made it better
  2. It made it worse

Guess who won? 

T-Mobile has pulled the ROM update due to complaints, one of which is that touch-sensitivity starts out very high but then degrades to the point where you have to mash the screen to get it respond. Another is dialing 611 reportedly screws up the speakerphone till you soft reset. Others complain of freezing and general instability (see this thread at HTC.com)

It is unclear when T-Mobile will release an updated version or what they plan on fixing, but most of seems to focus around Sense 2.5 and areas of customization. We'll keep you posted on any changes.
