HTC One V ROM Ported to the Desire S and Desire HD

With the release of new Android devices, it is inevitable for their software to get ported to other devices from the same OEM. We’ve brought you some of this recently with the Xperia S UI being ported to various older Xperia devices. With every new generation coming out, it’s going to end up on an older generation device, one way or another.

For the HTC Desire S, that time is now. XDA Senior Member proxuser has ported over a ROM from one of HTC’s newest offerings, the HTC One V. While the ROM is still a work in progress, there is a lot of promise with the ROM currently. To begin with, the official list of what’s working is longer than what isn’t working, and that is always a great sign. To be more specific, what isn’t working currently is only:

camera
wifi hotspot
usb tethering

So camera, hotspot and USB tethering. Considering what some devices go through with ports, that’s a phenomenal thing. With revision 3.3 only three weeks from release, it’s clear that proxuser is going to support this for quite some time.

The port for the HTC Desire HD is even closer to completion, as the same developer is working on the same port as well. For the time being, the only thing that isn’t working is the camera, so maybe getting hotspot and tethering fixed on that phone can bring some hope for Desire S users.

In any case, both of these ROMs are nearing completion, so Desire S and Desire HD users will soon be graced with the HTC One V goodies. Additional information, screen shots, a review video, change logs, feature list, credits and thank you list, and download links can be found in the Desire S and Desire HD threads.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
