Extra Helpings of Jelly Bean Goodness for HTC Desire S

With all the recent Jelly Bean development taking place across various device forums on XDA, owners of some of the aging devices may be starting to feel left out. Owners of the HTC Desire S need not worry about this. Over the last week or two, a plethora of Jelly Bean based ROMs have been developed for the device.

First up, XDA Senior Member blindndumb brings us a Paranoid Android port. The unique hybrid ROM has been making it’s way across the forums with high activity of late. It allows setting different DPIs and layouts on a per app basis.

Blindndumb has been busy and has also given HTC Desire S users the chance to try out BlindBEAN, a Jelly Bean hybrid ROM ported from official AOKP builds with CyanogenMod 10 nightlies as a base.

XDA Senior Member nk111 brings us Jelly Bean-based CyanogenMod 10. The ever popular Android mod has made its way to the HTC Desire S, adding to the ever growing list of devices with a CyanogenMod 10 ports.

XDA Recognized Developer superkid and the Andromadus dev team have taken a slightly different, yet equally impressive route. JellyBelly is a CyanogenMod 10-based Jelly Bean ROM, but with something a little extra. The ROM includes kernel 3, despite the fact HTC haven’t released kernel 3 source for the HTC Desire S. The team managed to build the kernel using code taken from the HTC One V kernel sources.

Of course, as with most Jelly Bean ports onto older devices, these ROMs are in an alpha or beta state with a number of known issues. That said, they are still usable and give you a salivating taste of Jelly Bean on your Desire S.

If you want some of the Jelly Bean goodness, head on over to any of the ROM threads:
