Nokia X ROM Running on the HTC HD2… Sort of

Nokia X ROM Running on the HTC HD2… Sort of

Hey, what’s that image over to your right? Oh that’s just an HTC HD2 running a port of the Nokia X ROM… Wait, what?

OK. Part of why you undoubtedly had to do a double take when reading that last statement is that most of the development efforts on the Nokia X thus far have involved removing Nokia’s strange UI from the device and turning the Nokia X into a more traditional Android smartphone. But just like what they say about questionable content on the Internet, if you can imagine any kind of strange hybrid ROM, chances are that someone’s already created it.

This strange amalgamation comes courtesy of XDA Senior Member aazzam16661 with help from Senior Member gilbert32. Now before you start getting too excited (or traumatized), this port can’t do much more than boot at this point. Essentially nothing works other than graphics and sound—but perhaps that’s a good thing for HD2 owners everywhere. That said, it’s still interesting to say the least to see such a port on the HD2, essentially proving that the HD2 will live on for forever—at least in comparison to other mobile devices.

You can check out more screenshots by visiting gilbert32′s post. Just don’t ask the dev for a flashable ZIP because it won’t come anytime soon. And be careful what you wish for, as you may find yourself with a Nokia-laden HD2 at some point.
