My HTC HD2 crashed – Woo hoo!
The inevitable happened to my WM6.5 HTC HD3 device last night..it crashed!
I was experiementing with soft keyboards and installing a couple of cab files and one of which didn’t wanna play nice with WM6.5 and rendered the HD2 into a permanent hung state with no means of soft resetting successfully.
Last resort was to do a hard reset; I didn’t have the manual handy so consulted Monsieur Google who advised a 3 finger salute procedure to do a hard reset.
One good thing about Wm6.5 is it includes the Microsoft My Phone app which syncs up over the air the to store all your PIM information such as Calendars, Tasks, Contact, Notes, Photos, Music etc online.
I was smart enough (for once!) to sync up my HD2 with Microsoft MyPhone and thu restoring my PIM information over the air was very painless.
You can login to the web interface to manage your stuff as well. Oh, forgot to mention, you’ll be asked to register for a Windows Live userid.
But I didn’t back up the applications so had to reinstall manually. Thanks to the blazingly quick Snapdragon 1Ghz processor, I was able to reinstall 10 of my fav apps in no time…a huge improvement over my previous slow performing WinMo devices that takes ages to reinstall.
The HD2 is back in action now ..:)
