HTC HD2 'pink blob' patch produced
Camera glitch fixed
HTC has released a software patch designed to fix the Touch HD2 smartphone’s infamous ‘pink blob’ camera glitch.

The high-end handset only hit Blighty a few weeks ago, but users quickly began filling forums with complains that pictures taken using the phone’s 5Mp camera were coming out with a strange pink tint in the middle, as seen above.
HTC soon coughed up to the problem and the 2.2MB “Digital Picture Enhancement” patch is, apparently, the solution.
To banish pink-eye from your HD2, simply download the software patch from HTC’s website and follow the step-by-step installation guide. ®
SMS update too ...
Looks like they have put an SMS update on the website, along with a ROM upgrade:
If you're using OSX or linux - Just download the patch, send it to your device via bluetooth and run the exe there.
There's no real need to sync, this is a simple hotfix not a hard reset.
who care what OS you have?!! just use the HD2 to download the file - you dont even need a damn computer!
More to the point - its very nice they have fixed a minor bug with the camera - what about the MAJOR bug with the SMS feature (i.e. that it doesnt work!)
this sounds like only the HD2 has the pink blob problem (which isn't true)
many other camera phones have the same pink blob problem but only HTC stepped up to the plate and fixed their's. it's not a software issue, it's a hardware issue that affects many other phones too.
mine is the one with the windows phone in the.......HEY! who took my phone!!
Mac / Linux users
Ignore the above rant and continuous hatred by "IT specialist" since he obviously doesn't know what he is on about.
Simply switch your device to "Disk Drive" mode, copy the patch file over to the newly detected drive (Mac OS / Linux will detect the HD2 as a new disk drive). Move the file to main storage via File Explorer and run it from there.
