Windows Phone 7 Port for HTC HD2

Posted by techhackz-admin Friday, January 14, 2011


The day has finally come, we were all wondering if the HTC HD2 would see a port of Windows Phone 7 anytime soon and after 5 months of development it is now a reality. The Dark Forces Team brought Windows Phone 7 to the HTC HD2 community yesterday. The cloud services (Xbox Live, Marketplace etc.) were not working in the beginning but it took only a few additional hours for the XDA community to release an hack for that. 

You can see in the video below Windows Phone 7 running on a HTC HD2:

As you can see it does work very well for a port, Windows Phone 7 is now another viable option for the HTC HD2 users.
