HTC HD2 gets Android 2.2 Froyo and Desire’s 2.1 Sense ROMs [Video]

The HD2 is another piece of endearing solid, discretely handsome HTC hardware, but its native Windows Mobile OS would normally make it unwelcome here at Android Community.  Thanks to the handiwork of xda-developers, however, HD2 owners can now get a shot of frozen yoghurt instead of their Microsoft dose; they've managed to port Android 2.2 Froyo onto the HD2. If Froyo isn't to your taste, there's also an Android 2.1 build with the same HTC Sense UI as on the Desire available.  There are still issues with each, including audio issues during calls and - on the Froyo build - some 3G problems, so these may not be everyday ROMs for you, but the good news is that the 1GHz Snapdragon processor in the HD2 keeps them running as slickly as you'd find on a Nexus One or Desire.

HTC Hero Android 2.1 unofficial ROM released [Updated]

If you're not in Taiwan and thus waiting for the OTA HTC Hero Android 2.1 update to drop from carrier Chungwa Telecom, you'll be pleased to hear that there's already a hacked ROM suitable for any Hero out in the wild.  Master ROM-fiddler Paul O'Brien has released three different versions of the update. Two are rooted (one of which has the Chinese-specific functionality stripped out as well, and is the recommended path for most users to take) while there's also an unrooted version.  We're keeping a watchful eye on HTC's European support sites, and have a request in with their PR team for any public timescale they may be able to give. Update: We've just heard back from HTC's UK PR team, who say that they expect the Android 2.1 firmware for the HTC Hero to be released sometime in June 2010. Nothing more specific than that, sadly.
