If you ran the utility to completion and the device restarted on its own, it's more or less a sure thing that you're upgraded. This is the most esoteric part of the process, so I'll try not to get too deep into the nuts and bolts. Basically, your device has firmware that manages its various antennae, letting you connect to cellular networks, GPS, etc. Installing a fresh Radio onto your device usually won't make much of a change in how your phone works.
Some radios can improve reception on certain networks, or even connect to entirely new mobile bands. For more info on that, I'l refer you again to XDA. You'll probably notice that this process is seems an awfully lot like the last stage: Since we're "flashing" different parts of your phone's software in each step, the core utility, and general technique, is quite similar. Copy the extracted radio file—it should have an. NBH extension—to the directory where you've put your bootloader.
Let the phone restart. Nothing much will have changed, but you may need to perform some minor network setup. Don't worry too much about that now, since you're about to wipe your whole device. This is when we get down to actually installing our new OS. This is the step that'll take the longest, and it's the biggest leap of faith, since you're replacing your device's main software. Luckily, if you've come this far, it'll be a snap. Same process, different. NBH file.
Extract your downloaded bootloader, again, to a different location.
Or you can use the same copy you used to flash your radio; just make sure you delete the radio file from the directory. Extract your Windows Mobile 6. NBH file of about MB, to the same directory that your bootloader is in. Run the bootloader, and follow the instructions.
Same warnings as before—don't let your PC or phone sever the connection at any point. Your phone will reset, and you should see a fresh Windows Mobile 6. It might look hacked or unprofessional—don't be alarmed! The guys who so graciously put together these ROMs, which often take a good deal of tweaking, leave their marks on the software in various ways.
Anyhoo, you'll have to let your phone run through a set of initialization routines for a little while. Just follow along. WinMo should automatically guess your carrier and apply the appropriate connections settings. If not, you can do it from the device's Settings page, found in the top level of the new start menu. As for the settings parameters, Google is your friend.
You are now the proud, semi-legal owner of a Windows Mobile 6. It's hard to imagine wanting to switch back, but if you do, just repeat the above process with a different ROM. There are plenty of 6. So that's about it! Please add in your experiences in the comments-your feedback is a huge benefit to our Saturday guides. Good luck with your flashing firmware only, please , and have a great weekend!
The A. John Herrman. What is this? Please help me because i don't know so much about this phone. Its a shame that several of your download links didn't work, and that might have contributed to the problem; but I followed this all mulitple times perfectly but end up with the circle of squares boot animation that simply runs non-stop. I can restore it back to windows using your advice regarding the htc website, but I want to fix this to be android! Is there any way to tell where it's going wrong and a basic route to fix it? Dude i have a problem. On login screen , when i power up the phone some squares are turning around some animation and there stops whole phone and i cant do anything Instructions on restoring to Windows Mobile 6.

Installing Android OS on the HTC Touch Pro2? - Android Devices | Android Forums
Please let me know is this called as brick? Please , help me Thanks YH. I can't open it Also will this work on an HD2 that is rooted with Android Froyo 2. Since I'm still new to Android, I would appreciate if anyone could give some more specific instructions, or provide another link that would show them. I managed to run Android 2. Still trying to play around. It's slow and some things like bluetooth don't work. That's why I thought maybe a more updated version should fix those issues Probably the best thing to do is to head to XDA-Developers.
As such I can't really give you any detailed advice on your own situation, as I'm not familiar with the phone or the versions of ANdroid that are available. Thanks for this guide works well. I had to use 'HSPL 2. Also I am not sure if this is only a problem with the European version of the phone, but I found it to have extremely low internal memory, using a custom partition size of MB instead of MB helped slightly. But now I am also considering using this method: I seem to have the same problem as you: You just select HSPL 2.
The only thing I could suggest is that you remove the battery, wait a while, replace it and proceed. Also maybe run the "HSPL4. I managed to leave my phone in a field yesterday - a friend is going to search for it this morning 'cos my car has simultaneously broken down. But when if? I get it back, I'll try your suggestion about the battery. It's just so weird that the HPSL appears to install in a few seconds.
It doesn't get as far as deleting the data: If I don't get anywhere by leaving the battery out, maybe I'll gird my loins and try the scary method you reference at xda-developers. Lets all rock the world with happiness together! Hey Velcro Just search for newest radio button update for hd2. Updating radio button is just too easy. Nice article, but reading it I couldn't help but ask myself - Can one use a similar technique to install android on samsung wave y which has bada os on it btw?
Thank you in advance. Top Deals. Email Facebook Whatsapp Pinterest Twitter. Enjoyed this article?
You'll find a suitable ROM for your model via Google. Boot back into Windows Mobile and check WiFi is working there.
There are executables in there, for instance. And I'm assuming the executables don't work on Mac's? You've misread the instructions. You don't run hspl4 on your phone, you run it on your computer. Greatly appreciated, Bakharla, thanks! Hi - It was all going so well Got past step one then repeated failures - I noticed I have on tricolour screen the info is the same except for the last two lines which read: Any suggestions?
