If you have a Touch HD, then you've almost certainly experienced the bug whereby it freezes randomly for a few seconds at a time. Annoying no?

Well, you'll be pleased to hear that HTC have a HotFix available for download NOW here on their support site.

The details...

Hot fix to enhance response time for HTC Touch HD

Date: 2008-12-04 Category: Hotfix

Sometimes the screen stops responding for about 3 to 5 seconds when running an application that needs to use the stylus to click the screen repeatedly within a short time. For example, the windows built-in software like SMS, email, solitaire, etc.

Installation Instructions: Follow the instructions below to install this software onto your device.

Note: This hot fix can only be installed in ROM version less than 1.19.xxx.x. To check your ROM version, tap Start > Settings > System tab > Device Information to confirm the ROM version.

Follow the instructions below to download and install the hot fix on your device:

  • Make sure you have Microsoft ActiveSync® installed on your Windows XP PC orWindowsMobileDeviceCenteron your Windows Vista® PC. You can find Microsoft ActiveSync from this link or Windows Mobile Device Center from this link.
  • Connect and synchronize your device with your PC via Microsoft ActiveSync® orWindowsMobileDeviceCenterusing the USB cable.
  • To download the hot fix, first select the check box below. Next, select the hot fix and the desired FTP site then click Download.
  • Copy the hot fix, which is an .exe file, to your device.
To install the hot fix, tap the .exe file and follow the on-screen instructions.

* If you perform a hard reset of your device, you need to reinstall the hot fix after the hard reset.


A very annoying bug and a very welcome fix (that seems to work!) B)

OK, found a way to download this. So if anyone else needs it before HTC fix their site....
  • Save a copy of the source of http://www.htc.com/w...p...8&news_id=6 (either save the page as HTML only, or copy and paste the source into a text editor).
  • Add the following in the HEAD, e.g. immediately before the first <script> tag on line 7
    <base href="http://www.htc.com/www/SupportViewNews.aspx?dl_id=448&news_id=6">
  • Search for "action="SupportViewNews.aspx?dl_id=448&news_id=6"to
    action="http://www.htc.com/www/SupportViewNews.aspx?dl_id=448&news_id=6"
  • Open your copy of the page in a browser and try again. :rolleyes:
