HardSPL 2.08 – also known as 2.08.HSPL – is an SPL bootloader for the HTC HD2 that allows you to install custom Windows Mobile 6.5 ROMs and MAGLDR – which in turn lets you install Windows Phone 7 as well as Android ROMs – to your HD2.
If you want to switch to a custom Windows Mobile 6.5 ROM or intend on turning your HD2 into a Windows Phone 7 or Android device, installing HardSPL 2.08 is the first step in the process.
The tool that we will be using to install HardSPL 2.08 on the HD2 is called HSPL4 and it has been developed by Bepe and Cotulla of DFT (Dark Forces Team).
- HTC HD2 (All versions including T-Mobile USA are supported)
- Phone’s battery charged to 25% or more. (50% or more is recommended to be on the safe side.)
- PC running Windows XP, Vista or 7.
- Microsoft ActiveSync (Windows XP) or Windows Mobile Device Center (Windows Vista / 7) installed.
- microUSB cable for connecting the HD2 to the PC.
- HSPL4 (Download the zip file and extract the contained HSPL4.exe file to your computer.)
How to de:–
- Run the HSPL4.exe file on your computer (as administrator on windows 7/vista).
- Turn your phone off.
- Turn in on holding the volume down key and power button until tri-color screen like in image appears.
- Connect the phone to usb and computer.
- Click ‘Next’ in the HSPL4 window.
- Make sure you select 2.08.HSPL from the dropdown list and click ‘Next’.
- The tool will now install HardSPL 2.08 to your HD2.
8. Once the process is complete, you will get a confirmation message and the device will reboot.
HTC Android phone that comes with the Sense UI are very good as they give you a lots of widgets to play with but at the same time it got very poor Lock Screen.
The Sense lock screen is not as best as the UI. Also the sense lock screen results in answering or rejecting the call while taking out of the pocket. If you wanted to change the lock screen but don’t want to use some third party app then here is a solution for you.
This is just to disable the Sense lock screen and enables the stock Froyo lock screen.
- Rooted phone
- HTC sense Device
- Sense version 2.1 or higher.
- Root explorer or super manager.
Note :- It may not work for All phones.
Using super manager as its free but its same for root explorer.
- Download Super Manager from market, install and run.
- Go to settings and enable root.
- Select file manager.
- Click back one level up twice .
- Navigate to system>app — Search for htclockscreen.apk and select it.
- Rename the above file extension to .apkp (its easy to rename back to .apk in-case it troubles you)
- Finally reboot your phone .
This method has worked for Desire HD and Desire Z and should work for most of the new devices.
Enjoy the new look of the device…
