The HD2 was HTC’s last Windows Mobile-based phone when it released in late 2009.

Today, we saw an all-new hack released for the HD2: it’s called USB Host and it allows your HD2 to, well, play as host device instead of client in order to connect to different USB peripherals.
Developed by the Dark Forces Team (aka the folks behind the RSPL/HSPL tool for WP7 phones), today’s USB Host brings cool new functionality to the aging HTC HD2 smartphone. [...]
Windows is very democratic in its allocation of CPU time – just about any program you run gets full access to every processor core by default. This sounds like a good idea at first, but it isn’t.
Yes, some of the programs you run need to consume all the CPU power you have available, but there are plenty of others that are less important. Many of those system tray icons represent tools that you need to run, but aren’t exactly critical. There’s no need for them to have the same level of access to your CPU as, say, that game you’re going to play next.
Many PC users don’t [...]

HTC has finally launched an official Desire Gingerbread update, which will update the HTC Desire to Android 2.3.3.
There’s a pretty big catch, though. This is not your traditional “over the air” update that’s all nice and easy. Instead, users have to download and install Android 2.3 on the HTC Desire manually.
