We’ve previously mentioned that the awesome HTC HD2 has finally gotten Ice Cream Sandwich from CyanogenMod and now it’s been update to v1.3 which has almost everything working perfectly fine. There’s still minor bugs though but we’ve been using it for a couple of days and it’s been rock solid and the camera also works now. Definitely ready for daily usage.

Please read the NexusHD2-ICS-CM9 Q&A wiki before asking any questions. (Thanks Geenyous, Szczepanik, TheManii, etc. for editing these Q&A to avoid the repeated questions.)
Please visit the NexusHD2-ICS-CM9 A2SD Discussion thread for how to increase the internal storage size, and post all the a2sd questions in this thread. Thanks.


  • Please use at least 180MB system partition and at least 2MB cache partition.
    • Please refer to ksubedi’s HD2 NAND Toolkit and/or mskip’s guide.
    • Cache partition (/dev/block/mtdblock4) is only used by CWM.
    • Cache partition size is not important because the data partition (/dev/block/mtdblock5) is used as the cache space when running Android.
    • If your HD2 has bad NAND blocks, you may need larger partitions.
  • Wipe
    • Wipe Data/Factory Reset while doing a fresh install. (Optional: delete /sdcard/Android folder or format your SD card if you have any strange issue.)
    • Advanced -> Wipe Dalvik Cache while upgrading and wanting to retain data.
  • Flash this ROM.
    • MAGLDR: Flash, then reboot.
    •   cLK  : Flash and the cLK kernel, then reboot.

Extra Downloads:

  • Enable/Disable the stock size of the virtual soft keys (i.e. the on-screen virtual button):
  • About the mobile data connection types: RMNET V.S. PPP.
    • Bootloader MAGLDR supports both RMNET and PPP. I set RMNET as default for MAGLDR ROM because stock Android only supports RMNET.
    • Bootloader cLK only supports PPP.
    • RMNET is more stable than PPP. (Some PPP users have data drop issues.) However PPP may be faster for some users.
    • Flash if you prefer PPP on MAGLDR.
  • Flash Battery Percentage Mod if required.
  • Flash ICS Softkeys Mod (smaller size of the virtual soft keys) if required.


  • V1.3 (Feb. 5, 2012)
  • V1.2 (Jan. 21, 2012)
    • Included to support Ad-Hoc WiFi network.
    • Upgraded BCM4329 firmwares (fw_bcm4329.bin and fw_bcm4329_apsta.bin) to v4.218.248.23 to fix the “black screen of death” for some users.
    • Removed acdb (Audio Configuration DB) firmwares (default_att.acdb and default_france.acdb) to fix the in-call echo for some users. (No echo in my HD2 even if these files are there.)
    • Fixed MMS blurry pics (changed UA from Passion to NexusOne).
    • Updated to the latest hosts file (January-18-2012) for blocking ads.
    • Updated to Google Maps v6.1.1.
    • Removed talkback.apk to save system space. Please install the latest version from the Market if required.
