Here is a step-by-step, illustrated guide to installing a Windows Phone 7.8 custom ROM on your HTC HD2 (Leo).

Windows Phone 7.8 on HTC HD2

Back-up your data.

Shut down your phone.

If you haven't already, make sure the SD card you wish to use with Windows Phone is installed in your phone. In order to use it, the SD card must be present during initial installation of the operating system as it will be formatted and become part of Windows Phone's 'Unified storage system'.

Connect your phone to your PC using a USB cable.

Power up the device in Bootloader mode. Do this by pressing and holding down the power button and the volume down button simultaneously.


Install HSPL

Download and run HSPL4 (HSPL4.exe).
Run this program as an administrator: Right-click, Run as administrator.


Select HSPL version: 2.08.HSPL.

Select HSPL version 2.08.HSPL

The progress bar will move up and down
"We hacked it!"
Do you see "We hacked it!" on the device?
Succesfully done!

Your phone will reboot.

Establish an ActiveSync connection between your phone and PC.

ActiveSync

Install MAGLDR

Download and run MAGLDR (ROMUpdateUtility.exe).
Run this program as an administrator: Right-click, Run as administrator.

Acknowledge the warning and click Next.

Installing MAGLDR
Click Update.

Installing MAGLDR
Complete the next steps.

Installing MAGLDR
Installing MAGLDR

Installing MAGLDR
Installing MAGLDR
The phone will reboot into MAGLDR.

aMAGLDR V1.13
Recommended: using volume up and down buttons to navigate and the Call button for Enter, select option 10: "Services".

UseLast24NAND
Select option 4: "UseLast24NAND".

UseLast24NAND
Do you want to use last 24Mb of NAND? Why, Yes.

Install a Custom ROM


Select "5. USB Flasher".

aMAGLDR V1.13: 5. USB Flasher
USB Flasher mode: "Wait USB...USB".
Once you see this screen you're ready to install the custom ROM. In this case I'm using Dynamics HD2O 2.00b WP7.8 8858:

 
Run "DWI.exe" and follow the instructions.
Run this program as an administrator: Right-click, Run as administrator.

DFT Windows Installer for HTC Leo (DWI100)

Installation will take a few minutes.

The progress bar on your PC will move from left to right.


DFT Windows Installer for HTC Leo (DWI100)
The progress bar on your phone will climb steadiliy.

Flashing partition

"Congratulations! Installation succesfully completed."
Your phone will now reboot.

Boot logo
Windows Phone boot logo
"Welcome to your HTC HD7 T9292"
You have succesfully installed Windows Phone.

After you've completed the initial configuration wizard, go to "Settings", "About" to check the version number and available storage.

In order to use Windows Live Services, required by features such as Facebook integration and the Windows Phone Store, you need to obtain an activation code through Microsoft. You can contact Microsoft by phone or chat. I will not cover this procedure here, but you can find information and tips about it elsewhere online.

  5. Thank Dave. I loved Android but it was pain seeing "insufficient memory" because HD2 has a limited internal memory...and I didn't want to go back to Windows 6.5 because that looks ugly on HD2.

    Thanks again for sharing such a detailed article <3

  10. I'm having a major issue. Every worked smoothly until I finished the MAGLDR installing (a screen prompt said the MAGLDR installation will take more than 10 mins but mine was done under 30 seconds!). But in reboot it didn't load MAGLDR bootloader instead its show a purple circular arrow and nothing else. When I tried to rerun the MAGLDR program, I noticed that on the 3rd screen with "Current information about your PDA" heading the image version space is now blank. When I continue the process is still successful but the situation is not changed. I've tried it multiply times with the same results. Can anyone help me?

    ReplyDelete
  11. I feel bad for anyone having problems. Me and others have used the instructions above successfully many times.

    Here are some suggestions:
    - Use a direct connection to a USB port on your computer (no hubs).
    - Many problems can be traced back to a faulty or unsupported SD card. If you have one, try another one. In the context of troubleshooting you could try without one.
    - Run flash tools executables (e.g. HSPL4.exe and ROMUpdateUtility.exe) from a local hard drive.

  13. Hoi,

    Ik heb de windows 7.8 geïnstalleerd op mijn HTC HD2,
    en hij werkt prima. Ik kan alleen de telefoon niet meer
    opladen of aansluiten aan de laptop. De laptop herkent de
    telefoon niet als telefoon. Ik heb op internet al gezocht
    of ik iets kon downloaden om dit te verbeteren maar ik kan
    niks vinden. Heb ik hem verkeerd geïnstalleerd? Kun je me

    Een ander probleem is de batterij, die gaat echt snel leeg. Ik
    gebruik hem overdag niet veel, maar als ik om half 5 naar huis
    rijd dan is hij al bijna leeg, terwijl ik hem die nacht ervoor
    heb opgeladen. Op internet staat dat het helpt als je de
    telefoon terug zet naar de fabrieksinstellingen. Maar als ik
    dat doe, dan verwijder ik toch automatisch Windows 7.8?
    Kun je me hierbij helpen?

    Groetjes, Ellen

    1. Je moet Zune installeren om bestanden e.d. met Windows Phone 7.8 te synchroniseren.

      Als je terug gaat naar de fabrieksinstellingen via Instellingen > Systeem > Info in Windows Phone 7.8 worden je persoonlijke instellingen en apps gewist, maar zal je niet terugkeren naar Windows Mobile 6.5.

      Ik heb zelf geen last van een slechte batterijduur met deze ROM. De telefoon gaat ruim 2 dagen mee. Wat je kan proberen is het volgende:
      - De "camera truc". In sommige versies van Windows Phone 7.x bleef de camera op de achtergrond actief waardoor meer stroom werd verbruikt. Je kon dit verhelpen door na het laden van Windows even de camera te starten en vervolgens weer af te sluiten.
      - WiFi uitschakelen
      - Bluetooth uitschakelen
      - Batterijbesparing inschakelen

    1. Onder de juiste omstandigheden kan je van Microsoft een activatiecode ontvangen om Live Services te activeren. Welke omstandigheden dat zijn laat ik even aan je logisch verstand over. Hierover is elders meer informatie te vinden. Ondersteuning via chat is een werkbare en efficiënte methode.

  15. Excellent Posting and Step by Step guide!!!
    Want to ADD here one thing,if you are installing under a Windows 8 environment or Windows 7 or Vista then please use Administrative Privileges (Right Click and RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR option) to DWI.EXE file to avoid Installation Failure of the ROM Update.
    Thumbs Up and keep up the good work.

  22. Beste Dave,
    Ik heb een probleem met detectie van simkaart. Ik heb de rom (20Wp7.8_20OS_207.10.8858.136_20RMT_20v8.7 geïnstalleerd. na een tijdje wilde ik de nieuwste ROM installeren. Sindsdien herkent ie mijn simkaart niet. Verschillende simkaarten geprobeerd maar zonder resultaat. Ik heb zelfs de originle software erop gezet maar het mocht niet baten. Waar kan dit aan liggen?

    Mvg,

  23. Hallo ik heb het hele verhaal precies gevolgd en het ging ook erg goed totdat ik magdlr erop had gezet. De telefoon reboot niet maar geeft een wit scherm met de tekst htc. De batterij er uit gehaald en de telefoon gerest maar niets helpt hij springt gelijk weer op hetzelfde scherm. Wat kan ik doen? Help

    1. Hallo, je moet eerst weer hspl 4.exe opnieuw doen en hier kiezen voor 2.08HSPL ipv 3.03HSPL zie ook screenshot van Dave.
      hierna zal magdlr wel starten.

    1. - Probeer de ROM bestanden op een andere locatie op te slaan. Bijvoorbeeld de root van een lokale drive (C:\ of D:\).
      - Sluit de USB kabel direct aan op de pc (niet via USB hubs).
      - Start DWI.exe elevated: Rightclick > Run as administrator.

  36. Hello Dave
    I tried the instructions like running HSPL and MAGLDR when the MAGLDR was finished installing my phone didn't reboot to MAGLDR to continue the process. it just stopped on white screen (htc) and I'm not able to have access to my previous windows as well.
    Before installation I didn't copy anything/ troubleshoot/ format my SD card, can you please tell me what is the problem and what I can do to fix this.
    Thanks & Regards,

  45. Hallo Dave,

    Ik heb Windows Phone 7.8 met succes op mijn HTC HD2 met een 2Gb Micro SD kaartje geïnstalleerd.
    De telefoon werkt goed, maar mijn Micro SD kaartje is nu zo goed als vol.
    Is er een mogelijkheid om de data van het Micro SD kaartje over te zetten naar een 32Gb kaartje zonder dat ik de rom opnieuw moet installeren?
    Ik heb geprobeerd om de data over te zetten naar een ander Micro SD kaarje met Road Kit's Raw Copy, maar helaas helaas veroorzaakte het gekopieerde Micro SD kaartje een foutmelding bij het booten van de telefoon, er werd een kaartfout gemeld.
    Ik hoop dat je een andere oplossing voor me hebt.

    Bij voorbaat dank, Arie

    1. Hallo Arie,
      Helaas moet je de ROM opnieuw installeren nadat je het nieuwe SD kaartje geplaatst hebt. Later kun je de bestanden van je oude SD kaartje via usb weer teugzetten. Denk wel aan je live-id code dat je die ergens opgeschreven hebt, die heb je weer nodig na de installatie.

      Groeten,
      Erik

  78. Hi Dave, First of all my thanks and compliments for the great step-by-step guide. Even I managed to update my HD2. But now I am having some strange and apparently unrelated issues with the phone and I was wondering/hoping if you by looking at the issues, you could see what went wrong:
    1) My Wifi connection is shaky. Without SD card, I can find the available networks, but when entering the Password, it keeps returning as an incorrect password (which it isn't)
    2) I keep returning to the set-up page as if each time i start-up the HD2, it is the first start-up. Time settings, date, language preferences etc. are all gone
    3) Changing the language - in my case to the Indonesian Language - has no impact whatsoever

    Perhaps I need to re-do the install, but is that at all possible? Ok, again my thanks for an exellent instruction guide and I hope you (or anyone else ftm) can help me with the final tweeking of my phone.
    4) The SD card - formatted to NTFS - is not recognized

  90. This worked a treat, but I would like to upgrade my installed micro card with a larger one. I know that it is not a strait swap. I have looked into cloning but there does not seem to be anything on the card to clone i.e. hidden files etc. Anyone got an idea how to do this?

  92. Hi Dave, 1000 thanks for your help.It did really worked, 6 months ago, I have tried to install System Android, I have buzzed completely my HTC HD2, was simply dead, I've even took to the repair, and Guy couldn't repair it, then he said; you should send it to HTC, but it may cost a lot. So I tried last night, before putting my HTC in the trash. Voila all's working, and I have new version of Win Mobile 7 on my HTC now. Great page, thanks again for helping us. take care..

    1. Thanks, for posting this tutorial, appears easy to follow, so I'll try it. I just had an ..."accident" with my Nokia Lumia 820 WPh8 so until I decide if it's worth fixing it or getting something newer/better I have to resort/rely on my older but trustworthy HTC HD2. I did n't want to go as far back as Windows Mobile 6.5 so I'll have to try this WPh7.8.

      One quick question: You wrote "Download and run MAGLDR (ROMUpdateUtility.exe)". But, when I click the MAGLDR link, I arrive at a page with a bunch of files including ROMUpdateUtility.exe. What am I supposed to do: Download ONLY ROMUpdateUtility.exe and run it as admin, or download ALL these files "under" the MAGLRD" link? And if your intention was to do the second, why the link takes us inside the MAGLDR "folder" and not a "level" above that so it's easier to download the entire MAGLRD directory with one click.

      Am I missing something or it's just a small glitch in the instructions?

      Finally, what is all this fuss about calling/chat Microsoft to activate Live Services, etc. I mean if this is not working how is this a functional ROM. Without Live.com support who can I be able to sync our phone and download our contacts, etc. At least can you explain a bit more or provide a link, or at a minimum what are we googling/yahooing/binging for here!?!

      Thanks!

  97. ΟΚ, Ι did it everything is very well documented, it works, windows phone 7.8 on the HD2 runs fine, very smooth, very responsive, very slick looking. I love it but unless I can activate it with MS all this will be an exercise on futility. If anyone knows a sure-fire way to get an activation code please post it of contact me at xwpisonoma at gmail.
