HTC release software fix for the HD2 camera *pink spot* issues

10 December, 2009
HTC HD2 certainly is a fine piece of technology - we've got the review up there to prove it. Unfortunately its 5 megapixel camera seems to have a rather *pink* spot for images plaguing every other unit...

Thought I would post a comment out of courtesy for GSM Arena providing the link!!!!
Installed the update from the link really easily. Hotfix installed without any problems. I have ROM version 1.48.405.2(71294)WWE on my HTC HD2.
I have some videos on Youtube that suffered from the pink spot. Hopefully this will fix it.
Thanks GSM Arena.

springmate, 17 Jan 2010why is it that it is not allowing me to download the upgrad... moreyou don't need to execute the file on your laptop. Just copy it your phone in some folder. Go to that folder using file explorer and tap the file. It will ask you to install the patch.

Anonymous, 10 Dec 2009Has somebody tried taking pictures of something that is pin... moreThis is the most sensible question that should had been asked in the first place...
Take photos of some different nuances of pink at different lighting. Same with video-recording.
Take photos of gradient between nuances, record some videos, etc.
It's impossible to fix the issue by software means.

Anyone have any idea.. When it will available in Australia? And who already got the HD2 can you tell me about its battery life?

WARNING: The udated ROM is only for HD2 owners of unlocked phones - handsets locked to networks (ie o2, Vodafone, etc) will need to speak to their provider before considering if they can upgrade the ROM (see comments made by the very knowledgeable Anthony in the general comments page for this phone - )

Anonymous, 11 Dec 2009What's wrong with video recording?Video recording also has pink issues.

  • sjaakie

I have had my HD2 for weeks now and have never had pink spot issues at all.
Everything works great. Do i need to upgrade? Or will this have a bad side effect? I am affraid it will back fire so Im stalling my upgrade.

Off topic: Comment to HTC: If you want top beat theh Iphone by Apple, you will need to improve the quality of the sound, because my girlfriends Iphone not only has a better sound quality it also has a much louder speaker (same goes with microphones) that beats the HD2 totally.

Also the Iphone clearly wins the apps war, much more handy apps compared to the WM marketplace. Although WM users can install anyting them selfs including patched cab files for TomTom Navigator etc.
