The Mango Beta update for Windows phone 7 has been seen running on a HTC HD2 Windows phone 6.5 handset. Coders at XDA Developers have install the latest beta version of Windows Phone 7 Mango onto the Windows Phone 6.5 HTC HD2.

Microsoft have acknowledged the ingenuity of the team responsible and has given its tacit approval, but stopped short of endorsing the practice as it will void the warranty on the phone as you have to unlock the phone’s original bootloader in order to install the new operating system.

Bill Cox from Microsoft said in a statement to AllThingsD, “We say tinker away with Mango and enjoy the juice, but beware the fine print unlocking phones may void your warranty.”

The HTC HD2 would have almost qualified for the windows phone hardware spec, it had a 4.3 inch display and 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, but it missed out on the required buttons.
