Desire HD Receives Sense-Laced Ice Cream Sandwich

Vanilla Android, in the form of AOSP and AOSP-derived builds, is generally the first most devices see of a new Android version. While there are some fun ICS leaks for phones like the Samsung Galaxy S II with their manufacturer skin pre-installed, most devices still have to flash a CyanogenMod 9 or some other AOSP-derived build to get ICS.

For owners of the HTC Desire HD, there is now an additional option. In a collaborative effort from the teams that brought Desire HD owners BeatMod and Smartdroid, comes a Sense 3.6 Port that also happens to be Ice Cream Sandwich based. XDA Recognized Developer zFr3eak and XDA Senior Members memnoc, BiCh0n and XxXPachaXxX are all in on the project, and are working fervently to get the bugs out.

The ROM features are pretty basic as this is still in beta mode. Currently it’s just stock Sense 3.6 with Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 but it can be assumed that once all the kinks are worked out, more modifications to the ROM will come. The list of things that are currently working are:

Call
SMS / MMS
Audio
Beats
Touchscreen
Acclerometer
Flashlight
Microphone
Touchkey
Keylights
SDCard
GPU acceleration
probaply more…

And what still needs a little work:

Camera
Wifi
Data
Bluetooth
USB Mounting
GPS
more…

So while it may not be ready for a daily driver level of use just yet, users can still flash it and check out the look and feel of Sense 3.6 with Ice Cream Sandwich.

Head on over to the original thread for more information, full feature list, change logs, screenshots and download links. As always, make a backup before flashing, just in case something goes wrong.
