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...

I still love it, but price should be lower than this.
Even HTC HD2 has alot of funtion and Option,but its still can not be compare with Laptop.

Just installed the pic fix. However I still have a slight pink hue in the centre. The fix does make the pink spot better but it hasn't completely removed it. It is still noticeable when picture is taken of a white background and that picture is viewed in thumb nail mode.

has anyone else noticed that unless, you set the brightness down to -2 on the camera, it is impossible to get a photo of someone with there eyes open

Has somebody tried taking pictures of something that is pink in colour?
Hope they have not re programmed the camera to not recognise the pink colour.

You'd think they'd notice if everything was pink, maybe it doesn't show on a 16 bit colour screen with only 65k colours.

Check's iPhone backup in iTunes, yep still there, bring on the next update I have backups of everything created every time I sync ready to reinstall...

...sweet.

Just looked up the ROM upgraded link and noted it makes the following comments...

What a pain in the bum... I've just had my hanset for a fortnight now, added several v.nice apps and got my address book , Twitter, YouTube and Facebook all organised and sync-ed... and now it seems it's all going to be wiped, and I have to phone o2 before I have this privilege!
Has anyone installed the ROM and had to go thru this, or has anyone managed to upgrade the ROM and avoid all wiping their data?
:-(
