If you are familiar with Xiaomi, you might have heard that they are not the most compliant when it comes to the General Public License that makes the core of Android open to us. The terms of the GPLv2 state that since the Android kernel is based on the Linux kernel, which is licensed under GPL,v2 Android has to be open-source for everyone to study or modify, and those that modify the Android kernel have to make their sources immediately available for...
HTC Flyer ROM for Desire HD/ Inspire
That´s the magic of XDA! When you think you´ve seen it all, you get something new and exciting. This time, XDA member Natkaffe pointed us to the first ROM from HTC Flyer ported for Desire HD and Inspire 4G. The rom comes loaded with full landscape support. However, this ROM is at early stages of development but according to the original poster, it is good enough to be used as daily. There are several non-working features as of yet:
– Car panel
– Almost every app needs some resizing
– Gallery starts, but doesn’t show pictures
– Most popup window needs resizing
– Touch keys don’t work in landscape
– Keyboard is too big, many letters are unavailable
– Weather animation for weather clock is not in the right place
Everything else is fully functional such as mail, SMS, youtube, social media, calendar, -camera/camcorder, clock, friend-stream, HTC hub, HTC likes, browser, locations, mail, market, and more.
This ROM should be installed only if you have some experience flashing ROMs.

hey here is a HTC Flyer rom for dhd and inspire phones
The rom is good enough to be used as daily, just put a different keyboard and it should be fine for you.
Works reported by liljom:
every function is available (some cases is landscape mode) in:
-press reader (as far as I went without registration)
-setup (where no keyboard is needed)
Continue to the original thread.
Thanks to M_T_M for the tip

After teasing products on its forums for a few days, Xiaomi held the anniversary event earlier today and staying true to the...
A few months ago, we came up with the idea of presenting the history of flagship devices released by some of the major Android OEMs. In this, we've had the pleasure of bringing you the stories of Sony (Ericsson) and Samsung. Now, it's time for our third and final installment. This is a very special episode, as the OEM I will talk about was heavily connected to Android and the beginnings of XDA as a whole. Yes, I'm talking about HTC, the...
