  • Please read the NexusHD2-ICS-CM9 FAQ Wiki before asking any questions. (Thanks Geenyous, Szczepanik, TheManii, etc. for editing these Q&A to avoid the repeated questions.)
  • Please visit the NexusHD2-ICS-CM9 A2SD Discussion Thread for how to increase the internal storage size, and post all the a2sd questions in that thread. Thanks.


  • Please use at least 165MB system partition and at least 2MB cache partition.
    • Please refer to ksubedi's HD2 NAND Toolkit and/or mskip's guide.
    • Cache partition (/dev/block/mtdblock4) is only mounted and used by CWM.
    • Cache partition size is not important because the data partition (/dev/block/mtdblock5) is used as the cache space when running Android.
    • If your HD2 has bad NAND blocks, you may need larger partitions.
  • Wipe
    • Wipe Data/Factory Reset while doing a fresh install. (Optional: also delete /sdcard/Android folder or format your SD card if you have any strange issue.)
    • Advanced -> Wipe Dalvik Cache while upgrading from an old version and wanting to retain data.
  • Flash this ROM.
    • MAGLDR: Flash, then reboot.
    •   cLK  : Flash and the cLK kernel, then reboot.

Extra Downloads:

  • Enable/Disable the stock size of the virtual soft keys (i.e. the navigation bar):
  • About the mobile data connection types: RMNET V.S. PPP.
    • Bootloader MAGLDR supports both RMNET and PPP. I set RMNET as default for MAGLDR ROM because stock Android only supports RMNET.
    • Bootloader cLK only supports PPP.
    • RMNET is more stable than PPP. (Some PPP users have data drop issues.) However PPP may be faster for some users.
    • Flash if you prefer PPP on MAGLDR.
  • Flash Battery Percentage Mod if required.
  • Flash ICS Softkeys Mod (smaller size of the virtual soft keys) if required.


Not Working:

  • Native USB Tethering
