HTC HD2 Checks-In at the Honeycomb Party, Sensefully Steals Several Gingerbread Cookies
Looks like HTC’s premiere superphone circa 2009, the HD2, is still alive and kicking. XDA member imilka has cooked up not one, but two impressive ROM dueling for the top spot on your HTC Leo. Hit the break for more details and all the relevant links!
- [Blue Pill] First up is a brand new, highly functioning port of SenseUI 2.1-laced Android 2.3.2 Gingerbread from the Desire S. While this ROM is still undergoing heavy development, it seems like almost everything other than the camera is functioning. That said, don’t be surprised if there are a few gremlins hidden inside. Continue on to the imilka’s Gingerbread Sense thread if you’re feeling brave…
- [Red Pill] Next up is the second release of a Honeycomb SDK port by the same developer, along with substantial contributions from fellow XDA developer crawlingcity, who added significant changes upping the day-to-day usabilty of the ROM for its second version. As to be expected in any SDK port, the gremlins here don’t even pretend to be in hiding. Even with crawlingcity‘s contributions, this ROM is not suitable as a daily driver, as the list of broken components is almost as long as the list of working ones. However, it’s still fun for a test drive, right? Continue on to the imilka’s (and crawlingcity’s) HD2 Honeycomb Development Central thread if you’re feeling crazy…
Who said mobile devices can’t live forever… Which one of these ROMs will win its place in your device’s heart?
