HTC HD2 gets Windows Phone 7 Tango ROM, proves it can run anything

The HTC HD2 is probably the most versatile smartphone out there. Why? Well, not only there’s an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich port and a Windows Phone 7 ROM available, but the HD2 can even dual boot them. And if that wasn’t enough, you can add Ubuntu to the boot equation.

So the love of the developer community for the smartphone should come as a surprise to no one. And neither should the HTC HD2′s latest achievement – running Windows Phone 7 Tango.

XDA members report that the Tango ROM is stable and feels somewhat faster than the Mango ports. That’s probably because of Tango’s lower system requirements and various optimization for lower-end chipsets. Market is working, as is Zune syncing and recovery.

If you want to give it a whirl, the source link below is all yours. Just remember to read through the topic and follow the instructions carefully. Happy flashing!
