  • Include tytung’s ICS HWA ramdisk (initrd.gz).
  • Include the required proprietary binary files and the HD2-specific files from my AOSP GB ROM (i.e. NexusHD2-Gingerbread).

  • ROM: download Ice Cream Sandwich (CM9) Updated To V2.4 For HTC (MD5sum: B10BF316095060E11048BF542080D41C) (No more mirrors, please!)
  • June 29 updated: Flash kernel tytung_HWA_r3.2 for fixing the battery drain (about 40mA) after using Bluetooth.
  • This ROM works for MAGLDR and cLK at the same time.


  • Please use at least 170MB system partition and at least 2MB cache partition.
    • Please refer to ksubedi’s HD2 NAND Toolkit and/ormskip’s guide.
    • Cache partition (/dev/block/mtdblock4) is only mounted and 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: also delete /sdcard/Android folder or format your SD card if you have any strange issue.)
    • Advanced -> Wipe Dalvik Cache while upgrading from an old version and wanting to retain data.
  • Flash this ROM

Seeing as to how this is based on CM 9, everything that needs to work does and it’s more than enough for a daily driver.
