HTC HD2 2.01 T-Mobile US ROM leaked

The T-Mobile ROM we talked about last night is now availalble on the internet. Beware thoguht; it’s a test only ROM for T-Mobile US and has radio issues in Europe, most othe the OS/Drivers etc are older than the 1.61 ROM even thought some HTC apps are newer (keyboard, Album, Teeter, etc). I wouldn’t recommend flashing your HTC HD2 with it right now.
