Android 4.2 Makes its Way to the HTC HD2

The HTC HD2 can be compared favorably to Bob Hope. It’s probably going to be around and reasonably successful for quite some time. Not too long ago, we brought you news that the HD2 continued being relevant when it received a WP8 port. Now, in an act that can only be described as necromancy, the HD2 lives again with an Android 4.2 ROM.

XDA Recognized Developer sportsstar89 released the ROM for people to try out. As can be expected with newer Android ports in general, the ROM is quite rough. Here is a list of things currently wrong:

* Wi-Fi
* Painfully Slow (Like painfully slow)

Users haven’t complained of anything wrong, other than what’s been listed. Despite the short list of things actually wrong, the painfully slow issue prevents this from being a daily driver. However, sportsstar89 isn’t done with development yet. The thread has been closed so that the ROM can be updated to CM10.1. So there won’t be additional updates for this particular ROM, but that means a CM10.1 build is well on its way. The original ROM download link is still up if you’d like to give it a try.

For more details, check out the original thread.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
