Lots of phones nowadays come out of the box with some features disabled, and it’s a simple matter of a little tweaking to activate them. Still, why would anyone intentionally limit the amount of RAM—that piece of hardware that makes high-end phones faster and thus easier to use—available to its users?
Case in point: the HTC HD2, which has 576 MB of RAM built-in, but only 448 MB of that available by default. Adventurous users will have to install “some custom ROMS” to free up the hidden memory. This potentially makes the HD2 faster, but most probably voids any applicable warranties. Video of the process is below:
So to all HTC HD2 users, if you’re feeling a bit experimental, and want to unlock the full potential of your phone, visit the xda-developers forum for more details. Just make sure you back everything up important before starting!
