Microsoft might have lost a lot of friends when it finally announced the HTC HD2 would not receive an update to Windows Phone 7 Series, but its loss is Tom Codon’s gain. A fixture over at the HTCPedia forums, Codon looks to have become the first person to port WP7S over to the HD2. Offering up four photos and video as proof of his accomplishment, Codon noted that most features of his experimental device are working well including GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Lag is proving to be a bit of an issue at this stage thanks to a stubborn graphics driver, but it’s nothing that can’t be overcome by the time the first beta, said to be coming soon, is released.

Nerd-approved pics after the jump.

UPDATE: Two videos have been released and we have them ready to go after the jump.
