The day has finally come, we were all wondering if the HTC HD2 would see a port of Windows Phone 7 anytime soon and after 5 months of development it is now a reality. The Dark Forces Team brought Windows Phone 7 to the HTC HD2 community yesterday. The cloud services (Xbox Live, Marketplace etc.) were not working in the beginning but it took only a few additional hours for the XDA community to release an hack for that.
You can see in the video below Windows Phone 7 running on a HTC HD2:
