Desire HD Tools and Themes for CoreDroid

When an XDA forum member goes off on a modding spree and makes a whole bunch of cool stuff, it’s always a good time for users looking to make their devices look cool and behave better. This is especially true when the mods are released simultaneously, and users can just browse the thread like kids in candy stores looking for their perfect combination of mods. XDA Senior Member rayford85 has released a number of modifications for those carrying the HTC Desire HD, specifically those running the CoreDroid ROM and gives users a good range of things to download and install.

The modifications consist of several notification bar tweaks, an icon pack, a themed battery mod, and a notification drop down mod that adds a transparent metal colored wood grain, while giving users the ability to change tracks by long pressing the volume buttons. The mods themselves are easy to install, and can be flashed via custom recovery. Additionally, rayford85 has set up his second post for users who want to add to the magic and so far include splash screens, HTC Sense Skins and 4ext themes.

For additional information on making your CoreDroid-enabled DHD even better, check out the modification thread for all the download links and links to other compatible mods. If you’re a developer, you can even submit your modifications to be added to the list.
